    1 thought on “Fever

    1. This year's inductee into the Diana Palmer Gloriously Bad Hall of Fame.Fever gives us a wealthy ranch owner who hates all women except perhaps his sainted, dearly departed mom, and maybe his sister. Every other woman is a gold-digging, man-eating, waste of hair spray although he is not above taking them for his sexual pleasure for a while and then sending them unceremoniously on their way with a diamond bracelet instead of a diamond ring. Let's call him The Stud.The heroine is an amalgam of Mary [...]

    2. 3.5 starsUnfortunately it had taken Rye two weeks to convince Edward McCall II that his son would not, repeat not, marry some useless Houston belle just to get his hands on the Angus bull.Oh '80s books, never change."Little girl, you've got a lot to learn," he muttered under his breath. "And you've come to just the man who can teach you."Umm, maybe do.This one obviously had some dated problems and the hero clung to his "woman only want me for my money" bitterness for far too long. Lisa's actions [...]

    3. Let's get one thing straight: I hate read this book in one sitting. I loved Lisa and hated Rye. He's not worth a damn. I hate how this book ended also, he got off too easy.But Elizabeth Lowell can sure as hell write a good story, so I'll be reading more from her. Preferably books with less of an asshole/misogynist male lead (I care very little for his remorse) and maybe more of a stand-up-for-yourself-girl heroine (although I can sort of understand Lisa's reactions given the situation).

    4. 4 - 4.5 stars.An oldie from Elizabeth Lowell. This book really reminded me on why she was one of my favorite authors. Her earlier works can really tuck at the heartstrings. The only negative is the sheer unworldliness of the heroine that takes quite a bit of suspension of disbelief.

    5. This book doesn't offer anything in the way of unpredictability or twists. However, what it does offer is a chemistry-filled love story that evokes surprisingly powerful emotions. The story is not long, but Lowell expects readers to buy that two people who are nearly polar opposites in terms of temperament, life experiences, etc can meet, fall in love, deal with the requisite scenario that tears them apart, and somehow find their way back to each other, all in less than 250 pages. What I didn't [...]

    6. All the things that make old school romance old school, the good, the bad, the cliches. I have a true unhealthy love for this book. If you love the alpha hero in today's books you must read this to see where he's come from.

    7. 2.5* Finished this one in a day It was ok, but Meh!The fact that it was dated wasn't even the biggest problem- it was that the heroine was completely unrelatable to and the hero was a chauvinist! Lisa, was a saint, a martyr! Plus she was totally clueless to how this world and things in it work! To make things more annoying, she didn't seem to be adapting - no, she seemed to live her life in America as if she were still part of a Zulu tribe. And this was supposed to make her special and lovable? [...]

    8. I really don't get the popularity of this book. The hero is a chauvinist neanderthal who gets angry at the drop of a hat, which is exasperating especially when he is at fault. Dialogues like " Let me do the thinking" and his attitude towards the mere suggestion that Lisa is looking for a husband made my blood boil. I gave it 2 stars since Lisa's complete lack of knowledge about modern implements and the way of life were described very well. Also, other descriptions of how she measured time, how [...]

    9. Ummmm Yeah. This book was supposedly published in 1988, but I think it was written in 1958. It contains a misogynistic "hero" who believes all women are whores and gold diggers. It contains the belief that a 20 year old girl is only interested in "catching a husband." It contains the concept that a woman should be judged by her cooking and homemaking abilities. I mean, it does not translate well to modern times. And yet It is compulsively readable. It is a ball of out-dated cheese, but I was hap [...]

    10. This may be one of Ms. Lowell's forgettable reads, but it is perfect for a summer day's diversion.3 stars.

    11. Anyone who has read Elizabeth Lowell's early books knows that she has a very specific formula. A hero who hates all women for some reason and treats the unbelievably naive heroine like dirt for most of the book before magically saying "I love you" at the end. Throw in A LOT of purple prose, particularly in the over-long sex scenes and that's pretty much every single one of her books. And while that same formula is on full display in FEVER, I'd say this was one of the least objectionable examples [...]

    12. When I got 150 pages into the book I had already decided how I was going to write my review and the amount of stars I would give, then I reach the last little bit and couldn't go through with it. Instead of two, I gave it three, although that last 100 pages deserve four stars.In short, ans blunt, Fever is about a man named Rye who is rich and his father wants an heir but Rye doesn't want the women he sends until he meets a woman named Lisa, who happens to be his hired hand.Of course, the two are [...]

    13. FEVER by Elizabeth Lowell is 248 pages in paperback form. This is #1 inThe McCall Series.Brief Description:FROM THE FRYING PAN Lisa Johansen, world traveler, had tasted the exotic and seen the extraordinary. But when a rancher called Rye came into her life, he ignited a feverish desire foreign to her mind, her body, her soul . . Rye was certain Lisa was like the gold-digging women in his past. He'd been burned before, and he vowed he would make no more mistakes. Still, he found it hard to resist [...]

    14. My Booklist review:The first hardcover edition of Lowell’s romance proves that classics never go out of style. Rancher Ryan McCall, son of a legendary and wealthy Houstonite, has been hounded by his father all his adult life to get married and start procreating. His father is so adamant about this that he has even resorted to sending women to Ryan’s Utah ranch to entice him. But Ryan wants a woman who wants him, not his money. He’s surprised to find Lisa Johansen in his upper meadow record [...]

    15. Lisa is a different kind of woman. She was raised in primitive (to Americans) places. Her parents are anthropologists and they raised her in the field as they were studying different cultures. She came to America to see if she fit in there. Her parents sent her to find a husband. A professor friend of her parents arranged for her to have a summer job watching plants grow in a meadow in Utah. He is also charged with finding her a husband. But Lisa doesn't really want that. She meets Rye, a cowhan [...]

    16. Rye McCall has a problem. He's got an obsessive father who's trying to ensure a dynasty, but Rye's rebellious and determined to lead his own life. And to make matters worse, he's just met a woman who may thwart both men's plans. For one brief, high-country summer, Rye manages the impossible--to keep his father's world at bay. But he's lost control of his own plans--he's fallen in love with Lisa Johansen. Now he's told too many lies for his happiness to last. He knows that. What he doesn't know i [...]

    17. Lowell’s early work doesn’t actually age very well. While her characters certainly have good chemistry, her early heroes tend to be tainted by misogyny that is never quite adequately erased by the happy ending. Rye “Boss Mac” MacCall is no exception; he’s convinced that pretty much all women are gold diggers out for his fortune. The heroine is a nubile twenty-year-old untained by Western civilization, since she’s been raised overseas by anthropologist parents. Her extreme vulnerabili [...]

    18. I really don't get the popularity of this book. The hero is a chauvinist neanderthal who gets angry at the drop of a hat, which is exasperating especially when he is at fault. Dialogues like " Let me do the thinking" and his attitude towards the mere suggestion that Lisa is looking for a husband made my blood boil. I gave it 2 stars since Lisa's complete lack of knowledge about modern implements and the way of life were described very well. Also, other descriptions of how she measured time, how [...]

    19. The story of Lisa, who has grown up among different tribes where she didn't belong, and Rye, a rich rancher who was only ever pursued for his money.The two meet when Lisa is observing plants at a meadow near his ranch one summer and mistakes him for a cowhand. He does not correct that misunderstanding, wanting for once to feel wanted for himself instead of his money, and so their romance begins.A short, sweet romance between a couple that are just what the other needs.Next comes Rye's sister Cyn [...]

    20. Nice story; great chemistry between the two main characters. I'd love to read a story about Lassiter, the silver-haired ranch hand who has some kind of unexplained charisma that attracts all the ladies. He's a hoot. My one complaint about this particular story is the blechy overuse of the phrase "velvet fever". Shudder.

    21. The McCall's series is great !!!!! This is an author that I have read a lot of and have added her books to my 'keeper' book shelf. Most I have read at least twice and some even more than that. Always in depth characters that anyone can identify with on some level.

    22. Although this book was written in the 80s and filled with male chauvinistic quotes I couldn't help but find this to be quite humorous (romance, you've come a long way baby). However the descriptive writings style was very good. I felt the passion and desire without going into raunchy details.

    23. Oh my my my So predictable, so melodramatic, such dramatic descriptions, such gender stereotypes, such really stupid single-dimensional characters. So why did I read the whole book? Great sex scenes!

    24. The meadow of LoveThis was the most beautiful, sensual book I have ever read. I can picture the character of Lisa and Rye. The joy of discovering love and of living only for now took away the bonds of limitation or was summer the end. Read the book to find out.

    25. I did enjoy reading this book and at times i found the settings and chemistry involving Rye and Lisa to be truly romance novel beautiful. On the other hand looking deeper i was frustrated by Rye's attitude, Lisa's lack thereof and thought that it all wrapped up too quickly albeit sweetly.

    26. The McCall's books are all great reads. This is an author that I have read a lot of and have added her books to my 'keeper' book shelf. Most I have read at least twice and some even more than that. Always in depth characters that anyone can identify with on some level.

    27. I read this one when it first came out years ago. After the 2 back to back DNF books I had recently, I went looking for some keepers to reread just to get those out of my head. I adored Rye & Lisa.
