Overview

The Touch of Fire by Linda Howard

Annie Parker came to Silver Mesa, Arizona, because it was the only place she'd found where folks thought a woman doctor was better than no doctor at all. Her lonely life became harder still on the winter night Rafe McCay broke into her office with a bullet in his side and a bounty hunter at his back. With a gun aimed at her heart, he led her deep into the Arizona mountains, and into a world of danger and passion, for Annie discovered in Rafe not only a wounded man, but a soul betrayed...and Rafe, healed by her skill and the magic in her hands, awakened in Annie a woman's tender longing and hungry desire. Pursued by dangerous secrets of the past, they are swept into a thrilling odyssey of the heart — a bold, exhilarating journey that rekindles Rafe's lost hope and transforms Annie's healing gift into a deep, enduring love.

This wasn't the book for me. I'm not new to Linda Howard and have enjoyed other books by her n the past. If I hadn't purchased the audio version with a gift card, I wouldn't have finished it (something to do while driving). While I did enjoy Rafe's story and the little known facts about the Civil War Ms. Howard incorporated into the story, the character of Annie drove me absolutely crazy. She was a giant mass of contradictions - timid and shy on one page, strong and stubborn on the next. I didn't believe for one second that she could fall in love with a violent man who continued to hold her prisoner solely for the purposes of seducing her and who emotionally and physically mistreated her. Nope. Not happening. There were also numerous, small plot holes I struggled with. Lastly, the build up to the ending was disappointing. I kept waiting for an attempt on Annie's life or Rafe to be arrested or something that would make all the suffering they went through seem as it was for nothing. Instead, the pieces fell neatly into place. I'm not giving up on Ms. Howard, but I am going to stick to her romantic suspense books.

I decided to give this book a try because of all the great reviews. So disappointed. I couldn't even finish it because it was so boring and I very rarely do that. There was very little dialogue and the heroine fell in love almost immediately. Very boring story.

When I first read this a couple years back I had just finished Mackenzies Mountain and I was on Linda Howard high. I found myself soaring high in the clouds. The H was so hard and alpha that I had to put the book down a couple of times to catch my breath. When he made her strip so she would not escape I was like Oh My Goodness. The h was great too a doctor that is forced to tend his wounds. I am a forever fan of Ms. Howard. Hope she has some new westerns coming soon:)

One of my favorite Linda Howard books - and I've read most of them. Loved the characters, the plot, and the steamy romance. Not only a 'must read' if you're a Linda Howard fan, it's definitely a 'must re-read' as well!

Entertaining romance with a little history thrown in. Enjoyed it and would recommend this and any of Linda Howard's other books.
