Paperback ´ Tamarisk Bay PDF/EPUB Ô

The other reviews state things plainly There simply wasn t enough romance and interaction to make this a successful book. So depressing for 3 4th of the story they were stranded on a deserted island It wasn t romantic and the main characters barely interacted The hero was busy being a He man and establishing a copra industry for the natives and the heroine was left languishing all day long in a hut There was a phase in the book towards the end when the sexual tension , the run chase between the leads was thrilling For that part I might rate the book 4 stars.But by and large, its a fairly lengthy tale of a world weary guy and dewy fresh girl marooned in an east Asian lagoon Their relationship is lost in the pages which seem filled with building life in isolation, setting up industry for the locals, etc.Decent read A sparkling heroine with every man in the book falling for her A rather There was a phase in the book towards the end when the sexual tension , the run chase between the leads was thrilling For that part I might rate the book 4 stars.But by and large, its a fairly lengthy tale of a world weary guy and dewy fresh girl marooned in an east Asian lagoon Their relationship is lost in the pages which seem filled with building life in isolation, setting up industry for the locals, etc.Decent read A sparkling heroine with every man in the book falling for her A rather haughty but caring and passionate hero No romance beyond a tepid kiss though.3 stars Another one from mum s collection which I liked at the time set in the Sumatran jungle in the 1960s where the hero and heroine are stranded together on an island Again the romance is of its time and considerably tame for the 21st century It is a pity there will be people who may never discover the romance writers of the 1960s and 1970s. The long, feathery fronds of the tamarisks waved above Jenny s head as she sat where the Sumatran jungle met the sea She was trying to take in all the implications of her plight She looked at the black silhouettes of the palms, at the starlit sea, at the pale sand spreading back into the quiet of the forest Until a ship came by and who could say how many days or weeks that would be she was cut off here with an unpredictable strangerHe had said that in a crowd they might not even notice each other, but Jenny knew better Almost certainly that arrogant gaze of his would pass over Jenny Manson, but there wasn t a woman anywhere who could come within a dozen yards of him and not be conscious of his magnetism In any case they weren t in a crowd They were alone, quite alone, on a tropic beach Read this for the first time in 2002 Read it again for about the tenth time perhaps eventhan the tenth Still absolutely love it.
