Sparks of antagonism and something elseBut by the time Tara was admitting tha. Much ado about nothing reallyThe girl limps a little and has a faint scar on her cheek Thanks to an accident Fiance dumps her And she turns into a self pitying melancholy ueenThe guy is a shrink He treats her like a patient kisses her once or twice But she keeps acting like a shrewThen she sees him helping out a deaf kid as a doctor And the heroine realises there are other greater miseries in life than her own That's enough realisation to get rid of her complex And accept that she loves the guyThere is nothing wrong with the poor guy he is perfect in every sense But there is no spice in his characterIn fact the entire story lacks a sense of drama or spice So the it left me cold and unaffected2 stars Luke warm stuff


Laird of GaelaT she felt something for him than dislike she had discovered who he really wa. After purchasing To Writers with Love On Writing Romantic Novels a guide for aspiring romance novelists by author Mary Wibberley I was interested to see if she put her own advice into action It must be said that in 'Laird of Gaela'a uneuivocally she does although when the author laid emphasis on the role of conflict in the plot line I didn't realise how passionate an adherent she was to this tenet Personally I found this book OTT in terms of creating situations for conflict between the protagonists and it's the main reason I'm giving it a three star vintage romance rating Throughout the story there are any number of contrived and rather ludicrous flare ups between the heroine and hero psychologist 'Jago Black' and recuperating office worker 'Tara Baine' which arise from the most innocuous scenarios and go loosely like this hero casually proffering a granny smith apple 'would you like an apple'heroine breath catches in throat and she swallows heavily 'An apple An apple Ohoh how could you insult me so'hero raising a sardonic eyebrow 'I think dear girl you're reading entirely too much into my offering a piece of fruit'heroine chest heaving and breath coming in uncertain gasps 'Oooh h how dare you You you're nothing but an unprincipled reprobatehero taking her wrist between his muscular thumb and forefinger 'Well since you mention it I could demonstrate exactly how a reprobate behaves in these situationsheroine striking him with palm of free hand smashing apple on his head 'Over my dead body y you vile serpent'If you can put the 'crazy flavour' conflict aside you can appreciate that the book is well and tightly written Mary Wibberley was very popular with MB readers in the 1970's and 'Laird of Gaela' was published in multiple editions But there are some elements of the plot that don't wear well 45 years later; for example the hero shaking a deaf child to prove his prognosis is particularly disturbing That incident along with the ongoing and freuently bizarre tension between the protagonists lends the story a jarring feeling which isn't really what I'm looking for in novels of this vintage but others at home in the Roberta Leigh Carole Mortimer Penny Jordan 1980's Harleuin era may find it to their likingFor me the jury's still out on whether to try other titles from the author
