    One thought on “The Aloha Bride”

    1. Re The Aloha Bride - "Eye to eye, face to face, I greet you and give to you my peace, in fact, the very breath of life," With those words we are off on another whacktastic ED adventure into HPlandia. This one is a trainwreck with an avalanche and a tsunami tossing it all up. ED must have been reading their The Blue Fairy Book while they were kicking it in Hawaii for this one. Cause AB is also a very unique pastiche reinvention of the mythic trope of the search for the lost husband. A trope that [...]

    2. I'm a huge fan of groveling. I don't think there's enough groveling in romance novels these days. I think people in Romancelandia are just way too forgiving. "So you slept with my step-mother, bankrupted my father, stole my virginity, saddled me with a bastard child--which left me despairing and desperate--financially blackmailed me to be your mistress and now you're saying you're sorry for all of that and you've loved me all this time? Yeah, okay, that sounds legit. You're forgiven." But then I [...]

    3. Wow - such a squicky premise. Such a beautiful ending! I loved the Hawaiian setting and the heroine's deep compassion - starting with her rescue of the old lady and then opening her heart (and body) to a dying man. The hero was equally self-sacrificing. He was obviously interested in the heroine himself, but felt he had to give his brother hope rather than keep the heroine's regard. I also liked the reconciliation the heroine had with her family. Boogenhagen has all the spoilers. But the premise [...]

    4. Slightly dated, though not outdated, neither outrageous or male-chauvinist as some other romances from the 80s can be.I really liked the fact that the plot kept surprising me - the first, second and third encounters were rather unusual, the proposal she was made at the 4th meeting even more so, with a little unexpected twist, the mystery around the identity of her lover, the way the hero then respected her wish (view spoiler)[ for peace and lack of interference from his part(hide spoiler)](so no [...]

    5. Well I think I'm done with re-reading books as I mostly end up disappointed. I read this book as a teenager and it was one of my favorite books and I had such a good memory of it but now I really struggle to finish it and asked myself what was I thinking! I read it both times in French and the translation felt really heavy and the style outdated and not in a classic book kind of way! I think I have outgrown the Harlequin style!!And really it is racy for a teenager 🙄
