Best book she's ever written, IMO, was "Zoya", and she's written nothing remotely like it since.
I agree also. You have more patience than I do. Many years ago, I tried to read Steeles' books, and gave up quickly. I just don't understand how her books reach bestseller lists!

LOL Jess - I'm a very voracious reader and will read anything when I'm out of books. I have a few friends who own all her books and kept bringing them to me to read against my better judgement, so that's how I've been so....fortunate.

Thank the Lord, they've finally quit bringing me Steele books!

Some writers do "formula" books: same basic plot, change the names & locations and voila...new novel! I guess it's like watching soap operas!

Boooooring.
