    One thought on “Just One Kiss”

    1. Kind of an angsty read, but not intolerable.Hero had such a lack of trust in the heroine, I'm surprised he could even trust her to chew and swallow her food correctly. No one can be totally without trust, IMO. Though the hero has suffered several trust-inducing setbacks with family and the human race in general.And I can see where he's coming from. Though I've never been in those shoes before.And why should it be such a shock to our heroine that our hero is a widower? In a time where people die [...]

    2. I think I would have enjoyed it more had it been the first Samantha James novel that I'd read, but having just finished Gabriel's Bride, I couldn't help but notice the bajillion similarities between the books. There were even several instances where it seemed that she'd taken phrases and just copy/pasted them into the other text.Ahh well. It was still an enjoyable story. Thus far, I've found her books to be very similar to books written by Elizabeth Rolls, in that there's always a ton of angst c [...]

    3. This was a delightful story! I really enjoyed this Samantha James book. Sometimes her heroines can get annoying but not so Elizabeth. Based on the story, I thought she might turn that way but she didn't. The hero, Morgan could be a jerk at times but he wasn't so terrible that he was unlikable. At times he could be sweet to Elizabeth. The time they spent at his cottage was probably the best part of the book. Morgan and Elizabeth were loving to each other. It was quite sweet. There were some momen [...]

    4. She traveled across the ocean to be with the man she loved, but Lady Elizabeth Stanton never expected to be accosted by her love's older, angrier brother Morgan.Morgan has been taking care of Nathaniel since their mother died. He raised them both from literal rags to riches and became one of the countries successful shipbuilders. All the while he's been cleaning up Nathaniel's messes and dealing with a brother who does nothing with his life expect mooch off Morgan. So when this beautiful English [...]

    5. HOW FRUSTRATING! This book drove me nuts, he was so jealous and suspicious and i found her to be silly as well. He doesn't trust any woman after his last wife bed down every other man she could find including his brother. Ok i get it you don't trust women but damn does your new wife have to pay for just about 98% of the book? There were times when he could have started to trust her and then the book could have been really sexy for sure but she did bring a lot on herself too. How many times do yo [...]

    6. Heroine was a bit TSTL. I mean, how many times does the hero have to get pissed off and raging about her seeming to be unfaithful and her being near his brother before she gets the hint that maybe she should be a bit more careful about how things look. But no, after he's they have a huge fight over her not staying away from the brother, she goes traipsing off to his brother's house. Idiot! Hero was a bit too growly and irritable for me. Why she fell in love with such an undemonstrative grouch I [...]

    7. Okay. I was trying to write it nicely and objectively but I couldn't.I couldn't even finished the book.What can I say, the characters: a bunch of immature people, tied by their emotion, illogical reasons, and the last. A lot of insecurity. I understand angst and drama are needed but most of the conflicts are self-inflicted, pull-and push without any maturity and communication, lies. Too emotional. It's like watching a soap opera where there is an evil sibling, evil step-mother, evil loan shark, [...]

    8. A great romance. The only thing I would've liked was a bit more of Morgan. At times I felt like we got way too much of Elizabeth and not enough of Morgan leaving me feeling that emotion wise the book was unbalanced. Morgan was such an intriguing hero character but we never really got to read his POV unless he was angry. Elizabeth also came off as torn being both incredibly naieve but strong, she needed a tad more balance.However, the plot was good and I loved the characters so it was well worth [...]

    9. Elizabeth left England to chase after a rake and to escape a horrid step-mother, who only cares for herself, after her father died. Morgan has spent his life looking out for, cleaning up after, and taking the blame for his rake of a little brother Nathaniel. Elizabeth and Morgan are drawn to each other from the beginning, and are forced into a marriage which is not really a hardship for either. Morgan faces his past and puts it aside for his future. Nathaniel finally owns up to his past and take [...]

    10. I must say I cried when reading this book. I understand all that Morgan had gone through and his lack of trust. But why must they take forever to speak their minds or tell their spouse what happen before they find out. I cried for Nathaniel and Morgan. I loved it

    11. I think as another reviewer said, this was not a very nice book. Other than the forage to come to America on her own,the heroine did not have much slunk and the hero was just miserable. He may have had reasons but he took them out on Elizabeth to an abusive point.

    12. The H was mean & h weak it got annoying his always accusing her of infidelity and her getting angry and crying it just annoyed me
