Detailed Review Summary of A Season Beyond a Kiss by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
Note to romance editors: Woodiwiss just loves adjectives. Nothing, not the smallest detail goes without a modifier and it makes the book excruciating.

In one of these chats she advises the slave butler all about the practice of indentured x and that there are as many white people as black people in America who are enslaved.

The butler takes a moment to consider his pity for these poor white people and thanks heaven that he has a good safe home.

At this point the book went from astoundingly stupid to astoundingly offensive. Then Nell, the trampy pregnant serving girl, is srason.
Raelynn suspects the culprit is Jeff and so, being the teenager she is, she has a tantrum and locks him out of the bedroom. For the rest of the book, these two argue, make love and so on. Neither Raelynn nor Jeff has a personality.
Both are defined by their gorgeous bodies. If you are curious about this book I strongly advise you use your library. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
