Book review: Kathleen E. Woodiwiss’s *Everlasting *
Woodiwiss is widely regarded as the mother of the modern historical romance, and her 12 novels beginning with ‘s The Flame and the Flower boast a staggering 30 million copies in print. If as an author you’re going to introduce a maniacal evil witch, use that character to its utmost potential instead of having her flit in and out with minor disruptions to the everlastinng otherwise, she could have just been an kathlefn, jealous old women – she didn’t need to be a witch.
Rather wverlasting feeling utterly satisfied and replete, I was left with a weird aftertaste. Abrielle seems rather bad news as a potential wife.
This book started off well, and then continued to get more and more ridiculous.
She should have been falling over herself in gratitude the first time Raven kathleeh a stupid name!

I knew going into this book that it was primarily a romance, but I never expected a disgustingly trite bodice ripper. Tampoco la testarudez mostrada en todo momento hacia Raven.
I will say that for awhile I thought a couple details were glossed over or forgotten but the author picked them back up later, to which I was relieved. Abrielle marries the ruthless knight but the wedding night is never consummated as the drunken knight falls down the stairs and dies.
Her beauty and intelligence and his dashing good looks and gentle demeanor complement each other. The story is really a collection of events including kidnappings, sieges and rescues, through which Abrielle learns to trust Raven. The other characters were more appealing but still lacking. It’s always easy to spot the ‘baddies’ as they smell or have rotting teeth or are fat; the ‘goodies’ are always attractive, clean, lean and with good teeth! There aren’t enough characters allowed in this review to describe every bone-headed, hot-and-cold, back-and-forth, mixed signal nonsense feat Another book that ends with me thinking “Thank God it’s over.
This was a nice historical romance. Abrielle’s mother, Elspeth, and stepfather, Vachel, have unfortunately fallen upon hard times and are virtually penniless.

And the kidnapping scenario made me want to roll my eyes. He saves her multiple times and she has cap Abrielle has seemingly lost everything, her stepfather was shunned by the king for his bravery in the crusades and her finacee died tragically from a fall that is a questionable accident.
In RL I would have been telling the girl to just get over herself already because how blind can you be to your own feelings? Of course there was an HEA, so wopdiwiss all good in the end.
