    Jezebel's Blues was a very different book about finding your own self and accepting it.Celia Moon has moved to Gideon to create a new life for herself, a life based on stability. Her parents were famous and adored each other but her relationship with them was complicated, she always felt she was an after thought with them and is still angry about her father's death coming so close on the heels of her mother.Eric is someone who didn't have the best childhood, he spent his life in Gideon first as [...]

    Drifter Eric Putman gets to know Celia Moon while he is stranded at her house because of a river overflow. Sexy, wounded hero and intelligent, charming heroine in a well written story.

    I read the Kindle version of this book, not realising it is a Silhouette Romance. I was so mesmerised by the name of the book and was eager to read it because it was about a river.Of course, there is the angsty love story between Celia and Eric. Celia was strong. Surprisingly so, because the second paragraph of the blurb made me think she was a needy, clingy woman. Eric's character was almost a cliché, with guilt colouring all his actions and standing in the way of happiness and love.But for me [...]

    This was a most enjoyable little romance. It wasn't exactly "contemporary" since some things in there were rather dated, so it is apparently an older book re-published without re-editing.

It did, however, not drag or get boring because s [...]

    Did I miss something? I don't believe I discovered why Laura washed up in the next town during the flood, and how did Celia know what Laura looked like to give a description of her over the phone while trying to find her since Laura had been missing for days? And why couldn't Eric make these calls since he was looking for his sister in the first place? Why was Jake in the rowboat in a storm? Otherwise this is a sweet book. The sexual situations were unnecessary, but this was written in the 90s w [...]

    Another beautiful, lyrical love story by Barbara Samuel. Every word is redolent of the deep south. I loved it.

    This book brings back memories! My mom read Harlequins all the time. This is one that I remember reading and re reading in high school. It is a good intro to this genre.
