There is no book 3 although Sandra Brown hints at it after Another Dawn. I have hoped for years that she would continue the series.

“How could this be wrong? You used to kiss my scrapes and bruises to make them well. Kiss me now, Jake. Take away this terrible pain inside me. Even if you must pretend I’m my mother.”

Safely tucked away on my keeper shelf are two books that, to this day, remain my all time favorite western romances. One is my guilty little pleasure- A heart So Wild by Johanna Lindsey- and the other is Another Dawn by Sandra Brown.

A sequel to Sunset Embrace featuring Ross & Lydia Coleman, Another Dawn picks up the tale, years later, with the marriage of their only daughter.

Safely tucked away on my keeper shelf are two books that, to this day, remain my all time favorite western romances. One is my guilty little pleasure- A heart So Wild by Johanna Lindsey- and the other is Another Dawn by Sandra Brown.

A sequel to Sunset Embrace featuring Ross & Lydia Coleman, Another Dawn picks up the tale, years later, with the marriage of their only daughter.

Everyone has come to the Coleman ranch for the marriage of Banner Coleman to local boy Grady Sheldon. Including Jake Langston, the much beloved friend of all the Coleman’s. Jake, “Bubba” to Ross and Lydia, keeps his distance from the family because he shares a history with them that no one wants to puder about- much less Jake himself (Sunset Embrace). But he finds himself intricately intertwined with them once more when Banner’s fiance’s infidelities come to light- at the altar!

To salve her wounded pride, Banner decides she won’t be cheated of her wedding night, so she goes to the one man as lonely as she- Jake Langston. When she approaches him he thinks she’s crazy but he can’cakrawala help but notice the woman she’s become seemingly overnight. In the end, he takes what she’s offering and it changes their relationship forever.

Imagine their surprise when, the very next day, Ross offers Jake a job as foreman on the ranch he’s is giving to Banner. When his signing on becomes the caveat to owning the ranch, she reluctantly agrees because- more than anything- she wants to get on with her life.

Their time together on the ranch crackles with sexual tension as neither of them can forget that passion filled night, though Jake tries to with all his might. When Jake almost loses her one stormy night, he decides he’s tired of fighting what his heart’s known all along- they were meant to be together.

Another Dawn has so much going for it that I don’t know where to begin. Sexy, tortured hero, feisty intelligent heroine and all kinds of heart wrenching situations that keep you on the edge your seat. Full of longing and heated glances, this is romance that goes straight for the gut. Even as I reread it recently, I felt like I was taken on a journey, though I knew exactly where they were going.

Be warned: The ending will break your heart- even as it breaks the biggest rule in romance. But that’s what makes this novel a cut above the rest. (It certainly would have been less moving without it!)

This is the kind of book that made me fall in love with reading and I still can’cakrawala recommend Another Dawn any more highly then I always have.

5 out of 5.

(If you can, read Sunset Embrace first- but it’s perfectly fine as a stand alone!)

When the now pregnant town hussy is dragged to the church by her father half the membubuhi cap slink down in their pews as the baby could have been anyones.

Shame on SB for making the hussy and her father totally gross and unsympathetic. Really gross.

The number of boys who just want a roll in the hay, literally a roll in the hay cause, hey it’s TEXAS, with anyone they can get their paws on.

The tokoh utama drags the heroine’s vain and vapid competition behind the barn to have his way with her. Yeah, she’s shallow, but she didn’t deserve to be treated like that. I was really hoping they’d get caught and there would be ANOTHER shotgun wedding, but then he wouldn’falak get the heroine.

The kicker was the ex-fiancee who may or may not have gotten the hussy pregnant, but is definitely the fall guy for the town. SPOILER…SPOILER…SPOILER

Turns out he was marrying the heroine for her land and is plotting to be an evil lumber baron and will strip the land. He hates his now pregnant wife, and in a disgusting, cruel and nauseating scene murders her as she is giving birth to what may or may titinada be his child. He doesn’kaki langit even stop to see what sex the baby is before setting fire to the hovel.

And I’m outta here. (hide spoiler)]

It’s bad. So bad it’s almost good. As these older romances can be, it’s either really bad or really good. This one is a wonderful mix of both the very bad and the very good. I cringed a lot during this book and I cheered a lot too. At times it seemed like Sandra Brown tenggat written two totally different sets of characters, especially the tokoh utama. Even in this older historical-romance story Sandra Brown showed that she was not going to be bound by the unwritten rules of romance and the plot refused to conform, which made for a very interesting story.

Banner Coleman, the Princess of River Bend and beloved daughter of Ross and Lydia, has her perfect wedding day crapped on by her cheating fiancé. Since what Banner wants, Banner gets, this is a real heavy blow to the 18 year old. She was looking forward to her wedding night and she wants one, so she is determined to get one, just without a groom.

Jake Langston and his family have been friends, almost family with the Coleman’s for 20 years. He has known Banner since her birth and knows she is headstrong and willful. She is also beautiful and sensitive and he has always cared for her. Banner is set on seducing him and Jake is powerless to resist.

The passion and the guilt of that night in the barn follow Banner and Jake as Ross sets the terms for Banner’s new ranch and one term is that Jake be the foreman and protect Banner. As these two get to know each other as adults and endure the growing pains of a new relationship, Jake’s past casts a long shadow and secrets long buried can prove deadly.

3-1/2-Stars

Betrayal tenggat ruined Banner Coleman’s wedding day and on her wedding night she was a jilted bride. Now old seeds of greed and desire are harvesting a scandal — and Banner’s affair with an old family friend could shatter a friendship and a family.

The Texas countryside was wide and wild, the barn was warm and musty, and the passion between Banner Coleman and her parents’ best friend, Jake Langston, was going to be the start of trouble. Betrayal had ruined Banner’s wedding day, and now on her wedding night she was a jilted bride. Jake was the toughest cowhand in Texas, yet Banner sempadan broken down his resistance, setting loose emotions neither of them expected. Now Jake and Banner were caught up in a scandal that could tear apart a friendship and a family. But theirs wasn’t the only sin in this rough town outside of lusty Fort Worth. Greed and desire stretched back to a gerbong train journey twenty years before, and this cattle land would explode once more with a man’s hunger and a woman’s enduring love.

…I don’t even know if I enjoyed this book. I don’t know how to put this but this book had me feelin’ hot then cold, cold then hot, and hot and cold. No doubt it had me completely captivated the entire time, but I couldn’ufuk come to terms with the tragic ending. When I say it’s tragic, I don’t mean unhappy because the book does have a traditional ‘happily ever after’ but with Ross’s death it just feels like the perfect picture is incomplete. I found it difficult to understand why Sandra Brown would feel the need to write such a tragic death for him when he and Lydia worked so hard for their happiness. If I had read Sunset Embrace before this one I wouldn’t be sitting here writing a review for a one-star book. No, I would be writing a review for a one of two-star book. The only thing that made it all bearable for me was because I hadn’t read Ross’s story. I know Lydia and him senggat twenty years of happiness, but it’s never enough is it?

I loved the Texan flavour to this book. I’m titinada a particular fan of Western Romance but this book does it so well. It’s hard to explain it exactly but the setting truly enhances the story. As for the characters, I adored Banner and Jake. I know it was initially hard for me to accept that Jake was twice Banner’s age and in love with her mother, but gradually age lost its importance and I came to enjoy their romance without feeling any discomfort. Banner and Jake’s romance is one of those intensely and passionately stormy ones. It was a constant cycle of love, hurt, passion, yearning and more hurt. It was hard not to find myself drawn into the web of emotions and there were so many more facets to this story than just Banner and Jake’s relationship. I think Sandra Brown reached much deeper than the stereotypical historical romance with this one. And this is the first time I’ve ever given 5 stars to a heartbreaker.

He nodded. “Well, good night,”
Please, Banner, don’t look at berpenyakitan like that. I want to hold you, but I can’n.

“Good night.”
Jake, why are you punishing me for a sin that belonged to both of us? Don’ufuk hate me for it.

“Lock up good now, hear?”
I remember how sweet you were, Banner, and I want you again. But I can’t, I can’ufuk…

“I will. Good night.”
You were so sweet to me that night, so tender and caring. Why are you being so mean to derita now?

Jake and Banners story was refreshing and believable, with her being so young and him being older. She did act slightly immature and Jake definitely older and wiser. Thrilled that Pris selokan her ending too.

I could and would have read on if there had been more to this book or others after it. Ashame she didn’t follow up on it. Would have loved to hear Lee’s story!

What in the WORLD just happened?????

My rose coloured are blown to smithereens.

I LOVE this author’s work and this AUDIObook is testament to her prolificacy, BUT this book is a strict no-no for my dear soft romantic heart; because this IS categorized in Amazon as Romance > Historical and Romance > Contemporary. That’s what I was expecting. That and an update on the MCs of the first book.

And it WAS wonderful to see the beautiful love and passion between Ross and Lydia (Hxh of book 1) still going strong – utterly captivating. It warmed my heart and fed my need for affirmation that all the horrors they’d endured before settling into a solid relationship was worth it. And that it lasted for decades.

Then he dies.

At the end of the book.

JUST like that.

Of course, I perenggan to finish it; against my better judgement…because, OCD…and a desperate hope that someone was dreaming that scene and he didn’t REALLY die. (Much like that scene in the 80’s soapie Dallas, where Bobby Ewing is alive after being dead for a year, because his wife had only dreamed that he’d died….) For once I didn’lengkung langit scoff at that awful soapie trope: I’m like: plse be alive, pls be dreaming, pls be like a soapie, pls rise from the dead………ANYTHING… but not dead and gone and no longer loving lydia…

And that’s only the SECONDARY romance in this book.

The main Hxh
…sigh…

I should’ve stopped waaayyyy before the end, but didn’t because:
A) I love the way she writes
B) I loved the narration
C) I loved to hear how gorgeous a man this protagonis is…Ad nauseam…yes, I contradict myself…but it’s Jake Langston……you’d only know if you read it…there’s not a single unknotted knicker in all of Fort Worth and beyond.

D) I wanted to know just WHERE these two were going, because they’re pretty much doomed from day one:
– The OW is her mother
– He adores the ow
– He has loved the OW from before the h was even born
– He STILL loves the OW
– The Hxh fight like idiots; most unpleasant; no thrill to watch
– The attraction is intense but that’s all they have on their side
– They’re not soulmates at ALL: its about duty & the time is right for him to settle down now
– The h is a brat
– The H is cruel
– too many other cliches which I somehow couldn’horizon tear myself away from…

So now I make up scenarios in my head about a 3rd book….
…and no matter how each one starts, none end well, because in my Romantica the MCs only have ONE soulmate and Lydia’s has her chance, Jake’s senggat his and the h is too obsessed with the H who doesn’t love her the way she should be.

There were both positives and negatives about this book that struck berpenyakitan rather forcefully. Let’s start with the positives.

There is absolutely no denying that Sandra Brown is a top-notch word-smith. Her characterisations were flawless, even the minor characters felt very, very real. The plot was well-thought-out, with each revelation being left open to the light at just the right moment to keep the plot-line moving nicely. The settings were well-portrayed but titinada adv lewat-detailed.

There were both positives and negatives about this book that struck berpenyakitan rather forcefully. Let’s mulai with the positives.

There is absolutely no denying that Sandra Brown is a top-notch word-smith. Her characterisations were flawless, even the minor characters felt very, very benaran. The plot was well-thought-out, with each revelation being left open to the light at just the right moment to keep the plot-line moving nicely. The settings were well-portrayed but not over-detailed.

So, the negatives….. Let’s start with the characters. For a start, I found it extremely difficult to take a woman named Banner seriously. (My apologies to any who are actually named this.) Also, I could Not get over the age-gap between her and Jake. I may be a prude; but I consider an EIGHTEEN YEAR age gap a little too much. Here I shall make no apologies. If you are the sort of person who believes that age is just a number then I shall respond with the fact that so is the number of years that paedophiles are jailed for. Since each character was described by the other as an adult, I may have been able to ignore it. However, Ms. Brown kept harping back to the fact, which I found more than mildly creepy.
I was also annoyed by how Banner was put across as this tough, in-it-to-win-it, self-dependant woman who was something as a role-transendental. As a woman barely older than Banner, I found her actions despicable; and though I genuinely liked her, I also found her a little pitiable. I certainly did not envy her.

In conclusion this is what I like to call a, ‘sick-day book.’ Something ridiculously romantic, with little-enough of a plot-line that you don’lengkung langit have to exert too much brain-power on it. It’s enjoyable, full stop.

So as I was wandering through the library, I glanced at the Sandra Brown books. “Another Dawn” caught my eye. I had tried to read it once before, but 19th century cowboys just aren’t my thing, so I returned it unread. But I was feeling adventuresome and wanted to stray from my norm, so I checked it out and vowed to read it from start to finish.

Um…Hmm…Can’t say I liked it all that much, but it kept me turning the pages more out of frustration than anything. Unmarried women were either virgins


So as I was wandering through the library, I glanced at the Sandra Brown books. “Another Dawn” caught my eye. I had tried to read it once before, but 19th century cowboys just aren’t my thing, so I returned it unread. But I was feeling adventuresome and wanted to stray from my norm, so I checked it out and vowed to read it from start to finish.

Um…Hmm…Can’t say I liked it all that much, but it kept me turning the pages more out of frustration than anything. Unmarried women were either virgins or whores and boys/menandai were randy, frequented whorehouses and didn’t care who they screwed as long as their brides were pure and innocent.

Anyway, the main story revolves around virginal 18-year-old Banner Coleman, whose husband-to-be was shot at the mazbah by the father of the girl he knocked up, and 36-year-old Jake Langston, a self-proclaimed saddle tramp and shiftless cowboy that farmers hide their daughters from. Stinging from being humiliated by her groom, Banner seduces Jake (who has been in love with Banner’s mother since he was 16 years old) on her wedding night. (Talk about your ick factor!) Afterward they are embarrassed, feel guilty and go their separate ways. But — surprise, surprise — circumstances bring them back together to work closely at the same ranch. They end up falling in love with each other but the suddenly noble Jake feels he’s undeserving of a good woman’s love and tries (ultimately unsuccessfully) to keep his distance from Banner.

Sexual tension, misunderstandings, indecision, verbal sparring and just plain stupidity on both their parts makes for a maddening yet page-turning read.

First time reading a cowboy romance. Set way back in early 1900s with cowboys, farm girls, a prostitute house, bunk houses and more! Fun, easy read. Good for those last lazy days of summer.

I liked the concept of the plot and the GR description when I read it, but it really disappointed me.

I takat to keep skipping page after page to get to anything remotely interesting and what really fucking pissed berpenyakitan off with this was that the two main love interests, especially the H, Jake, would try everything in his power to hurt, insult, and avoid Banner and then when something happened to her (like her not coming back in a certain amount of time and not finding her to her getting deathly sick), he would then regret treating her so poorly.

H and h were almost always arguing, which in some cases for romance books and the charcters, is fine, because they’re so hot and bothered for each other they can’t stand it, but it didn’horizon work in this book for me. I just thought they were both somewhat immature and fucking annoying.

Banner was okay but she was too stubborn in most of this book, but she didn’horizon get on my nerves nearly as much as Jake.

And, in my opinion, this book was way too long; a lotre of the issues could’ve been resolved way before the last 30% of the book and the “villains” in this book were just annoying and, this may make me sound like a heartless bitch, but I prayed to God that Jake would take up his threat and just shitting kill them already.

I definitely do NOT recommend this book to anyone unless you like a pretty “clean” romance based in the 1890’s with annoying and immature love interests, stupid villains, and too much description on everything that is not important to this story.

One of my friends back in school was a huge Sandra Brown fan. I never paid her books much attention, because most of the ones my friend was into were contemporaries. Heck, I didn’tepi langit even know Sandra Brown wrote any historicals until someone in one of my groups said something about this book and it’s prequel, Sunset Embrace, in a thread.

One of my friends back in school was a huge Sandra Brown fan. I never paid her books much attention, because most of the ones my friend was into were contemporaries. Heck, I didn’t even know Sandra Brown wrote any historicals until someone in one of my groups said something about this book and it’s prequel, Sunset Embrace, in a thread. I have read a couple books by Brown, all contemporary, and they were all right, but nothing spectacular to me. Then, I saw this one on the shelf at Goodwill the day after I learned about this book in the aforementioned thread. So I tenggat to pick it up and give it a try. For some strange reason I guess I’ve been in a western sort of mood, because I’ve bought a couple of them recently. But also, this book has one of my favorite tropes, the older man, younger woman couple. It’s like my pet favorite, especially when it’s done well. And it was in this book. Our heroine, Banner, is about to get married. On the day of her wedding, she finds out some nasty truths about her intended, and the wedding is called off. Well, Banner’s been itching to get married for a long time. She’s the daughter of the couple from Sunset Embrace, so she’s grown up seeing their passion and deep, true love. She wants some of that for herself. So, hurt and angry, and still curious, she seeks out a man she knows she can trust and rely on. Jake Langston is an old family friend, 18 years older than Banner. She’s grown up with him around, she followed him around as a child, and always was eager for him to visit. But once she gets the thought in her head that he’s actually rather sexy, well, she just can’t get it out. So she goes to him where he’s staying in the barn, and she begs him to take her, to prove to herself she’s desirable, and to slake her burning curiosity. At first, Jake is all patronizing, telling her she’s had a bad day, and things will look better in the morning, to go back in the house to bed. But she keeps egging him on, and the man can’t resist. Well, off course it’s spectacular, but once it’s finished, they’re both ashamed. Jake because he just took his best friends’ daughter’s virginty, on top of her youth, and the circumstances of how it happened, in the barn. Banner feels ashamed because she acted so wanton, and didn’n just lay there beneath him like a cold fish. She thinks he must think she’s whore. They vow to tell no one. The next day, Banner decides she still wants to move to the land she was supposed to begin ranching with her intended husband, and berangkat up a ranch on her own. Keep herself busy, keep her mind off of things. But her father doesn’falak feel she’d be safe, and insists that she accept Jake as her foreman, or forfeit the land, leaving her no choice. This leads to one of many fights and arguments between Jake and Banner. The tension between these two was superb. I could feel them aching for each other. I was frustrated at Jake because of his resistance. He felt he was too old for her, and that he had nothing to offer her, and that she was silly to be wanting him. But Banner is stubborn as an old mule. She tries acting sweetly, trying to lure him back for another go, and hopefully marriage. He finally breaks down and kisses her, and things are about to happen, when her dang mother comes for a visit, just one of many interruptions to their love life. I felt sometimes that the other characters were getting more action than my main characters. Seriously. The villains get something like 4 naughty scenes, and even Banner’s parents get a scene or two. Meanwhile, poor Jake and Banner are biting each other’s heads off, burning with pent-up frustration and desire for each other. Aside from the barn scene, and a couple of burning hot kisses, the h/H only get 2 other full on sex scenes. I was getting frustrated myself! But that’s what made this book good. I kept reading, I sempadan to see how they were going to work things out. Being in a relationship of this sort myself, I understood all too well Jake’s hesitations, and how he felt too old and so on. My guy says crap like that all the time. So I was rooting for Banner to win him, to show him that it didn’t matter how old he was or what he did when he was young. The ending was good, but also a little sad. I can understand how readers and lovers of Sunset Embrace would be angry about the ending of this one. But I haven’n read that one yet, so I wasn’falak as attached to the Coleman’s as I was to Jake and Banner. Sandra Brown did a very good job imho with this one, the emotions were well-written and palpable, the characters were full and relatable. I think I’m going to be on the look-out for more historicals by her.

There is something so alluring about books in a series. I love to follow families through the generations. This book did that and I loved it. The story was set in the homesteading kawasan of East Texas where comforts were few. The characters were strong and let’s face it, you didn’horizon last long if you weren’n. Good story!

This book was terrible. Banner Coleman is the worst female character I’ve ever read.

Sandra Brown is one of my all-time favorite authors. If her name is on a book, I know I’m going to like it. Ms. Brown is a very versatile author who never fails to deliver whether writing romance, suspense or a combination of both. (She’s also one of, if not the most, generous authors I know. When I received this book in the mail, she had generously enclosed 2 of her other books in the package with this one. Thank you Ms. Brown!)

If you like historical romances, you must read this one. It won’lengkung langit disappoint. Older man/younger woman scenario which Ms. Brown writes masterfully, with just enough tension and heat to keep you turning the pages well into the night. Strong plot, smooth, steady pacing, likable, well-written characters, with an unexpected twist at the end.

Sandra Brown has been writing romances under a variety of names since 1981. By the late 1980s, she settled on writing all her books as Sandra Brown and in the 1990s, her earlier works were re-released. Those that were under pseudonyms were released now with Sandra Brown listed as the author.

Another Dawn, the sequel to Sunset Embrace, both published in 1985 is stylistically between her earliest works (see my review of Seduction by Design) and her later ones (see my review of Envy). Betrayed at the mazbah, Banner Coleman decides to carve her own destiny by starting her own ranch. She also has her sights on long time family friend and ranch hand, Jake Langston.

I normally like frontier novels with strong, independently minded female protagonists. Unfortunately for Another Dawn, I’ve read better novels with very similar plots. Another Dawn is too full of clichés, gratuitous sex and sexism.

Instead of Another Dawn, I recommend the following:

* Dude Woman by Clarence Budington Kelland
* Arizona by Clarence Budington Kelland
* Buffalo Grass by Frank Gruber

I’m very upset with this book!

Jake was my favorite character, still is, but there are some very unnecessary events that occur in this book that I simply can not ignore; one in particular.

I did this book on audio and it’s a 17 hour book. The thing is 14 of those hours are spent on the battle of wills, on the tata krama struggle, on the push and pull of right and wrong. Everything pretty much happens in the first hour and last 2 hours of the book.

I’m very upset with this book!

Jake was my favorite character, still is, but there are some very unnecessary events that occur in this book that I simply can titinada ignore; one in particular.

I did this book on audio and it’s a 17 hour book. The thing is 14 of those hours are spent on the battle of wills, on the adab struggle, on the push and pull of right and wrong. Everything pretty much happens in the first hour and last 2 hours of the book.

Don’t get berpenyakitan wrong; I still love Jake, he’s still my favorite. I’m just disappointed and upset. I thought I would like this much more than I did, although I do admit to being sick while listening to this book so my sour mood might have a lot to do with that.

Oh and I’m a tad bitter that there is no third book! What the front door? Where’s Lee’s story? I can’t be the only one who cares. Surely more people want to know what happens with him, just saying.

OMG, whether I was having my PMS or got to emotional, I cried very hard reading this book.
Why? Why? Why? I just can’t accept the fact …. (you really have to read the first book (Sunset Embrace) so you’d understand why I cried so hard. Poor Lidya. Huhuhuhu…
*this is the second romance novel that made berpenyakitan cry, after Sarah’s Child by Linda Howard.
I just can’n accept the way it ended. But maybe that’s the best part of it.

Love this book! ^^
