Descripción del producto

As wild and beautiful as the Irish countryside, Dera Brennan falls in love with Irish rebel leader, Quint Flannery. Dera begs a commitment from Quint who refuses to be tied down by the shackles of love. Distraught over Quint's infidelity, Dera impulsively marries the haughty and imperious Lord Avery Fairfax, Quint's enemy. However, her heart can never forget the love and passion she shared with Quint, even after Quint is suspected of murdering Avery.

Their love story sweeps across the Emerald isle to the colonial French town of New Orleans where Dera and Quint are reunited. But can old hurts be forgiven and forgotten so they can reclaim their emerald desire?

Emerald Desire is the first novel in the Emerald Trilogy, concerning the Flannery men and the women who love them.

First published by Leisure Books, 1985.

After checking out the the brief book description, I was looking forward to reading this book. About 1/3 of the way into the book, I knew it wasn't my type of book but decided to go ahead and finish it so I could write a review.

Background: Dera Brennan's mother was a beautiful girl who left Ireland to go to England when she was a young woman and eventually became the mistress of an English aristocrat. She wasn't particularly nice to Dera and when Dera asked who her father was, her mother told her she didn't know and that Dera was a bastard. When her aristocrat quit supporting her, she felt that having a young daughter was a hindrance to her future plans so she sent Dera to live with her Uncle Timothy in Ireland. Uncle Timothy was the overseer of the property owned by Lord Avery Fairfax. Although Uncle Timothy and his wife, Lydia weren't cruel to Dera, they weren't exactly the picture of a loving family either. Eventually Dera becomes her uncle's assistant and takes care of the rent ledgers of Lord Fairfax's tenants.

Irishman Quint Flannery's family home had been taken away from his family when he was a boy because they were Roman Catholics. His family's property was given to Lord Avery Fairfax and the Flannerys were now tenants on the property they used to own. One day Dera discovered that the Flannery family's rent wasn't being paid and her uncle explained that the father of the home had died and that his son, Quint, now lives in the cottage with his mother.

Being a compassionate girl, Dera decides to visit the Flannery home and check out their situation. She is somewhat taken aback when the handsome Quint answers the door. There is a spark between them and his mother, who apparently has been gifted with the "sight" tells Quint that Dera is "the one." When Dera asks Quint was his mother means, he explains that his mother means that Dera is the one he will marry. However, Dera is still very young so Quint tells her that they will wait for a few years and then they will be together.

*******Huge Spoilers******* Time goes by and eventually Quint and Dera do get together and become intimate, however, Quint always puts Dera off about marriage. He is part of an Irish rebel faction who take their vengeance out on the English intruders by burning the homes of the English aristocrats who have been given the properties formerly belonging to the Irish. From here on out the story goes completely downhill.

#1 - Although Quint confesses love for Dera and has intimate relations with her, he beds another young woman on the side on a regular basis.

#2 - Dera is so beautiful that she gets the attention of Lord Avery Fairfax who wants to marry her. Because she is being pressured to marry Fairfax by her Uncle Timothy and his wife, Lydia, Dera goes to Quint to tell him they must get married so she won't have to marry Fairfax. When she arrives at Quint's cottage, she hears sounds and yes, you've got it, he is having sex with his "other woman" and Lydia hears Quint speak words of love to the other woman.

#3 - Hurt and angry, Dera marries Lord Fairfax. Quint works in the stable at Lord Fairfax's home. When he tries to get Dera to tell him why she married Fairfax, Dera won't tell him the true reason. Fairfax is unable to consummate the marriage and alternates between kindness and abusiveness to Dera for the few years that she is married to him.

#4 - Eventually Dera and Quint do get together even while she is still married to Fairfax and she explains why she married Lord Fairfax. Quint tries to explain his relationship with the other woman as being only physical and tells Dera he has sent her away. However, Quint continues burning homes and eventually is arrested and sentenced to hang. Quint's evil friend, Jem, approaches Dera and tells her he can get Quint out of jail but she has to do a favor for him - yes, you guessed it - the favor is sexual favors for Jem, which she agrees to and Quint does escape from prison. Because Quint knows that Dera knew about the rebels' hiding place and what they were doing, he believes she is the one who betrayed him. However, he knows nothing of the price Dera paid for his freedom.

#5 - Shortly after Quint escapes from prison, Lord Fairfax is murdered. By now Dera is also pregnant with Quint's child but Quint has left for places unknown to get away from the warrant of death hanging over his head. A kind friend of Dera's, Dominick, asks her to marry him and go to live with him in his home in New Orleans. Eventually Dera agrees thinking she will never see Quint again.

#6 - After a few years in New Orleans, Dera sees Quint, who is part of a group of Irishmen who now work for the French government, keeping peace in New Orleans. They acknowledge one another but although Quint and Dera know in their hearts they still love each other, he is still angry and she doesn't want to betray Dominick who she respects and honors. In the meantime, her teen-age sister-in-law, Rosette, who is man crazy, falls for Quint and visits him at his office which has a cot and yes, you guessed it, Quint locks the door and relations ensue.

So, at this point, for this reader, no matter if Quint and Dera get together, this book has not made me "happy, happy, happy." In fact this is the kind of story line I do not like at all. Confusion and unrequited love throughout the entire book! The H/h are never on the same page long enough to get together in the way it matters at the right time - too many other factors entering in. But the primary issue I have is that Quint declared his love for Dera over and over again but come on - you're going to have sex with her 17 year old sister-in-law??? As is the manner in most of this genre, in the last few pages all is resolved - but it is too late for this reader! How can all be resolved with this stupidity?

Thankfully, I read fast, this book only took up a couple of hours on this book. If my review will help anyone who feels the way I do about this type of story line where the "Hero" of the story can't keep his trousers buttoned and the "Heroine" is always marrying someone other than the man she loves, then at least I have accomplished something with the time it has taken to write this review.

1.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas It's hard to like a book... 30 de septiembre de 2013
Por Theresa H Brandt - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle|Compra verificada
When you dislike all of the characters. Dera, as expected, is impossibly beautiful but hated by every woman in the novel, save her lady's maid, Anna. Quint, is impossibly handsome, but so frequently willing to believe ill of Dera it makes you wonder why he keeps coming back. In fact, most of the men in this novel hate Dera, at one time or another. So, why is Dera so sought after? Oh...I forgot...Dera is impossibly beautiful.

She's also rather ridiculous in my view. On three separate occasions she has information, that if shared, could have made a significant difference to Quint, our romantic hero, but for whatever reason, she chooses to remain silent. She vacillates between being a doormat and being a shrew toward the men in her life. At one point Anna, says "I'll never understand your unthinking tongue." I'm right there with you, Anna.

I should also note that there is one occasion in this book that walks a very fine line between rape and consensual sex. If that concerns you, be wary.

Overall, I found this book to be a mile wide and an inch deep in its attempt to tell the tempestuous love story of Quint and Dera. Quint is willfully stubborn and Dera is...well, I don't know what Dera is except beautiful. There is weak characterization and numerous sex scenes that felt superfluous. I think I'll pass on the remaining books of this series.

While the story was well written and as my title says, a very beautiful love story I could not quite like Quint. He professed to love Dera so much, but couldn't stay out of Peg O'Connel's bed. I don't like it when the hero is unfaithful to the heroine. He can be
a "bad boy" but never unfaithful. All in all a very good read.

so it was ok.Didn't really know what to expect with this book. Never heard of the author or the series. The story was told well and it moved at a steady pace .No drawn out dramatics which was refreshing.

I had a hard time liking Dera .She was very submissive through out the whole book. She goes through many trials that mature her and while I don't agree with most of the decisions she made she never faltered when it came to protecting or helping the ones she loves.

Quint was an interesting character to get to know. He believed in what he was doing throughout the book and even though he does some things that are mean he still stays true to him loving her and proves himself worthy I guess to me in the end.
While I think this story was good a lot of Drea and Quints problems were lack of communication and even when the truth comes out they resist each other out of mistrust.

All in all it was good for a free book .
