Publisher's Summary

Dear Listener,
It is difficult for an author to choose a favorite from among her own books, especially when she has been lucky enough - as I have - to make a career out of doing what she loves. But some stories are memorable because they mark an important milestone in an author’s life, and for me, perhaps none is more special than Island Flame - my very first book. I was thrilled when it was published, and now, more than thirty years later, I am just as excited to share it again with you.
Island Flame is a classic tale of romance on the high seas, featuring two extraordinary characters: the headstrong Lady Catherine Aldley and the legendary pirate Jonathan Hale. I don’t have to tell you that their tumultuous escapade sizzles with passion (lots of passion!), but what I hope you will take away most from Cathy and Jonathan is that dreams do come true - in love and in life. Mine did, and I hope yours will too.
I look forward to sharing many more adventures together in the future.
Karen Robards

Worst Book Ever

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone misogynistic or masochistic.

Would you ever listen to anything by Karen Robards again?

Not sure.

Which character – as performed by Justine Eyre – was your favorite?

She performed all the character's fine, the story line was so repulsive I cannot imaging how she managed it.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disgust and disappointment that a women would write about falling in love with your rapist / kidnapper and because he says, I'm sorry she loves him. He promises it will never happen again but of course, it does and she forgives him and they live happily ever after.

Any additional comments?

Rape, Abuse, Stockholm Syndrome and Romance don't go together for me!

The world's worst book ever !!!!!!

What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Justine did a a wonderful job...too bad she had to read awful material.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Island Flame?

I would have deleted the book.

Any additional comments?

I have never been so angry at a book until now... rape (a lot of rape) and mistrust and violence are not love. This is all you get in this book and when awful things are done to the main character she forgives way too easily. Why this book has been re-released I am not sure. If I was Karen Robards, I would be very embarrassed that I wrote an awful, offensive and disturbing book.
