Download The Iron Man è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Kimberly Freeman was worried to death when her fiance who had gone out to Sierra Leone in West Africa seemed to have disappeared with out trace and she decided the best thing to do was to follow him out there and see if she could discover what had happened to himIn SierNd see if she could discover what had happened to himIn Sierra Leone however she met another man of a very different kind the domineering Dave Nelson who had a low opinion of Kim her fiance and indeed the whole. One of the very first Harleys I ever read back in the mists of time it would have been out 10 years or so when I got to it too and I always remembered this one and a recent emergence in my GR threads led to a reread It stands up fairly well The atmosphere is interesting and unusual a Sierra Leone mining camp where the heroine is stranded after she follows her dirtbag fiance on an impulse In a real bind she ends up marrying the mining camp boss temporarily until he can take her back to England on his leave five weeks hence Hero Dave is a toughie super alpha just how I likes 'em a man of few words and fewer scruples and uite ruthlessly determined on taking full advantage of the heroine's predicament both because he wants her and to make it clear to his men that she is out of bounds and not cause for trouble The naive heroine thinks he's doing her an altruistic favor but soon finds out he expects to share the marriage bed She's reluctant he's forceful and ultimately she has treacherous body syndrome but is resentful to find herself a convenient bedfellow There's a LOT that works here the oppressive setting where death and injury are everyday occurrences and the mod cons are few and far between; an enigmatic old skool hero who's tough and determined and very very cynical about life and women but a little soft on the heroine; an impulsive but ultimately practical and adaptable heroine who unwillingly finds herself falling for the hero; some mild OW drama; a near tragic event that allows the heroine to not only show her worth but also clarifies some of her own feelings to herself and to the hero Thorpe's writing style is clean and concise and relies chiefly on the fast moving dialogue Both the hero and heroine have brief but effective backstories that lay groundwork for the types of people they are and to explain some of the conflicts and drama between them This one is almost real life putting aside the near instant MoC in its emotional buildup It takes uite a while and a near death experience for the heroine to acknowledge that her reluctant attraction to the hero has deepened into love and even longer for him to let down some formidable barriers enough to allow her to stay with him and to believe they have a chance at a future A secondary character sums it up really well when he tells the heroine that she is overcomplicating things and to look at what her own actions as well as the actions of the hero are telling her rather than spinning round and round trying to figure out what she really feels Wise advice that leads to mutual declarations and a pretty good shot at an HEADefinitely some anachronistic elements in this one including forced seduction off page some mild threats from the hero that he never follows through on and cultural clunkers but overall I thought it stood up pretty well I always find it interesting that some of the 70s authors sidestepped the entire issue of whether the heroine was a virgin and often offer subtle clues that they're not it's pretty clear in this one despite the matter not being explicitly addressed that she is probably NOT With so many category romance novels conflating virginity with worth and the emergence of the oh so prevalent unlikely virgins in these books I find it refreshing that there appeared to be authors who chose to make it subtly clear that their heroines have uite naturally given the times had sexual experiences however lackluster after all we want relations with our heroes to be transcendent and like nothing before

Available on Open LibraryThe story was written way before iconic comic hero for which Robert Downey Jr is best known for though he and the Hero share a few chauvinistic traitsThe Hero in this one is very very Alpha in that he gives no uarter to the heroine and uite callously imposes his will on her However he has moments of harleuin Hero in him He rescues the heroine and his concern for her welfare far exceeds that of her former fiancé He comforts her in her distress and tries to give her some entertainment All these fine deeds of his are mostly concealed amongst his other callous dealings with the heroineThe heroine is an impulsive dodo She burns all her bridges only to get stranded in a foreign country with no money It’s up to the Hero to rescue her out of the situation she gets herself in To further compound her circumstances she marries a total stranger in haste I think she got what was coming to her and yes the Hero manipulated it to suit his needs This can actually serve as a cautionary tale for young girls St Margaret’s review gave a good summary and Naksed’s gave a good assessment LOL
