    One thought on “Intimate Strangers”

    1. I loved this novel. It’s one of the best western stories I’ve read in a very long time. It grabs you from the 1st chapter and doesn’t let go…us it’s very steamy and I loved that too…d it’s ‘novel’ length. Lucy’s father wants to start a horse breeding ranch and together they visit Texas (they are a wealthy family from back east). While there, her father dies unexpectedly. Ambrose Quincy (an honorable man with more land than money) falls in love with Lucy the 1st time he meets [...]

    2. Above and beyond anything in this book, I have to comment on the following. I don't care if he was her husband, no one and I mean NO ONE is ever ENTITLED to access to a woman's body. When a woman says no, she means no, and even if the guy is her husband, he needs to stop or it IS sexual assault. That's right, folks, that means it's RAPE. I found this book to be full of rape-y scenes and that's not even referring to the actual sexual assault that kicked off the action in the book.I was so furious [...]

    3. This book is best read AFTER reading Quincy's Woman by the same author. In Quincy's Woman, Lucy is a young girl bride who marries Ambrose because she is alone in a Texas frontier town after her father dies and Ambrose is the only man she trusts. For Ambrose, he marries her because he lusts mightily after her. Once married, there is plenty of hot lovin' between them but that seems to be the only thing going right in their marriage. Lucy is a wealthy Boston socialite, used to servants waiting on h [...]

    4. Quincy and Lucy's story picks up 8 years later in their marriage and things have gotten a little tense. They have a huge blowup which causes her to ride off in a snit. She doesn't return. Quincy thinks he's left her with another but that isn't the case. Now 3 years have gone by and its her brother-in-law Hamilton finds her 2 towns over as a cook in a diner. He needs her to return to Eclipse in order to prevent Quincy from being hung for the murder of his wife! She saves the day but the crux of t [...]

    5. If only more historical romances were written this well!This story has it all for the erotic romance lover. Chemistry between the love interests, conflict, hot sexual tension and hotter sex scenes. Throw in a great story, suspense, and well developed characters and you've got one heck of a read, my friends.

    6. On the days that followed the disappearance of his young wife, Ambrose stopped hoping and dreaming that she would return to him and their children. Then the day he due to be hung for her murder, a heavily scarred woman with no memory is dragged back into town by his brother, desperate to stop his death for a crime he didn’t commit. The woman certainly looks like his Lucy, but the woman in front of him acts nothing like the immature, bubbly young girl that ran away. When she was found wandering [...]

    7. This is difficult to review because I hated--and do mean HATED--the first book, Quincy's Woman; which could more or less possibly be better labeled as a prequel to this book, at least that's how I read it. Almost as if it were written as an afterthought to help build up the anger, pain, tension, bad blood and lust that filled the pages of Intimate Strangers.This book begins around the last few chapters of QW. If you can stomach Quincy's woman-owning and oppressive possessiveness and Lucy's doorm [...]

    8. 3.25 starsMy expectations were high, due to my impression of the previous book of Lucy and Ambrose Quince's dramatic story in the untamed West, yet I feel this sequel just didn't do well with tying up loose ends. Alpha hero, Ambrose, and heroine, Lucy, both have to learn to get deal with tragedy, regrets and each other. While the author does well to reveal the chinks in their relationship, sever it abruptly and then piece it back together, there still isn't dialogue or emotion to make the afterm [...]

    9. When Lucy Quince reappears after a seven year absence just in time to save her husband Ambrose from the gallows, she isn’t exactly welcomed home with hugs and kisses. Her family, including her husband, believes she deserted them and the town of Eclipse believes she’d been murdered by her husband – hence Ambrose’s near hanging. Lucy has no memory of her loving but tempestuous marriage, but knows she didn’t run away – she was kidnapped, raped, tortured, and left for dead. With only pas [...]

    10. I am glad that Gem Sivad did the work. I have read a few books where the heroine was violently attacked and/or held in captivity. In one book a few days and a couple of orgasms was all it took for post-traumatic stress disorder to vanish despite the fact that she was gang-raped for weeks. I appreciate that Ms. Sivad allowed her character time to process, grieve and authentically struggle with her trauma. I also loved the role Lucy's children played in her recovery and happiness. This was a great [...]

    11. This book was hard to put down. Also hard to figure out who the bad people were. It is a continuation from Quincy's Woman. Lucy is seperated from her family and has no memory of who she is or where she belongs.Quince and Lucy go through some hard times, to try and figure out what happened to her in the past that she can't remember. They do stand by each other, even when he thinks that she left him and the children. As they think about what has happened in their lives and who could benefit from t [...]

    12. NOTE: This review refers to the release Intimate Strangers.This is a very good story. It's incredible to watch the evolution of all the characters as they deal with the trauma of what happened to Lucy. Despite starting from angry, defensive places, the relationships develop into warm and loving ones. I couldn't put it down!

    13. Wow. Just wow! This book evoked so many emotions from me and left me wishing it didn't have to end!What a great way to start off my reading year - with an absolutely brilliant book!

    14. Gem is a fantastic historical western author and once you read "Perfect Strangers" you will be hooked on her books. I originally read it under the title "Intimate Strangers" and I absolutely love the updated and revised version. The chemistry between Lucy and Ambrose is electrifying and the plot has plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader fully engrossed in the book making it a definite must read!!!!!!!!!!! "Perfect Strangers" is a Fantastic, marvelous, and outstanding historical western. [...]

    15. 3.5 starsAn enjoyable read but in my opinion unnecessarily too long. What I enjoyed most was the Lucy’s and Ambrose’s character development and their relationship as a married couple with issues. That part of the story was well paced, and the author gives the reader a real feel of the western life.

    16. The cuttingLuce and Quince have a strange life together. The mystery of Luce's life is compelling. When you add a little sex between the two you have magic. Enjoy!
