Book Review: Nobody's Child


Nobody’s Child by Ann Major Silhouette Desire 1105 – Nov 97

Reading this book was like riding a roller coaster. It was exceptional when it was good but at least three times, I had the urge to put it away and quit reading. And I think that was because it was so repetitive. I might have a bad memory but I don’t need to be reminded of that time on the island every few pages.

Business magnate, Cutter Lord, went to a secluded island to ‘deal’ with his brother’s girlfriend. Cutter was determined to show her up for the gold-digger she was but instead, he fell under her spell and claimed her for his own. A couple days later, he disappeared.

Cheyenne Rose didn’t know where he went but he didn’t return her calls and put himself out of her reach. When she found herself pregnant with his child, she agreed to marry Cutter’s brother after all.

Flash forward 7 yrs. Cutter’s brother has been murdered and his widow, Cheyenne, has to auction off their possessions to pay their creditors. Enter Cutter who can’t forget Cheyenne and wants his son. And thus starts a chain of events that end in a surprising but satisfying conclusion.

  1. Hey, it's me. I didn't feel like changing my blogger account sig because it keeps changing my mail over too. ;)

    Anyway, glad to hear about this one. It's usually a storyline I'd go for but the repetition would drive me nuts. S'why I don't read Danielle Steele. UUUUGHHHH.

  2. I've seen reviews for more current Ann Major books where the reader rated them highly. I would like to read one and see if her writing has evolved because like I said, there were exceptional parts in the book.
