What Wednesday, February 23, 2005 10:41 AM Finish the sentence of what would either Catherine or Luke would say...Until there was you...My sweet Cath ..I saw the world in white and black, but now your love has color my world with sun bursting colorful hues and arrays. My love for you is at center stage! How could I've thought after being challenge by loves silken embrace that I'd walk away untouched or unscathed for emotions have clashed with igniting fires and Passions, forever now are YOU my desires! What was your favorite scene? Luke had so many turning and mixed emotions roaring up inside cause by his feelings for Catherine. It was kind of hilarious on pg. 39 he was still moaning and angry ..He was hurt he thought Catherine had MORE feelings for Hero than she did, for him. Then perhaps though...Luke was use to women always making a Big deal over him, and Catherine was different, YOU go girl...Cath...Was my She-roe! He felt she would have not given second thoughts to blowing a hole in him. Then again it was like Luke felt slighted one minute he took it personal and started talking about other men and if Catherine would've treated them better than she treated him.. The kick to Luke’s shin was hilarious! It had me rolling when Catherine thought it would make Luke feel better knowing that the gun didn‘t have bullets...smile after scaring the man half to death. The man probably thought he‘d be made a eunuch(((giggle))) OOOh me OOOOOh my....Group didn't Warrior Luke look HOTTT with no shirt on and a Stetson hat.... Ta boot...Hmmh.. Wouldn’t it be a gas to read about some of the other Hero &heroines wearing a Stetson and a smile?! Yippee aieeeeaaayyy!!! Teach me the Indian and cowboy way....heeee! I admired how Catherine was checking Luke out (after a midnight to sun rise sexual healing...wink.. wink) anyways back to the point...Luke walk to the bathroom ..After giving Catherine the phone... In nothing but his natural Buff...babee got backkk! All Catherine could say was Oh my! Heyyy you guys what If you were in the boonies...or.. Sticks can you image how dark It gets and just think about all those old Southern scary superstitions instill In you.. Hee heee, your mind works in over drive, Then out the window you see two large eyes gurllll I think I'd wet myself.... No way I’d sleep by myself that night ..Nope! The difference in the two couples: to me were a Lot! First of Luke & Catherine seemed to accept life for what It was In there sight. Catherine & Luke was comfortable with their life, accepted and settled with how their lives were not imagining that best was yet to come. For Trent & Dominique they had questions and looked for answers. It was like their (D&T‘S) life was a puzzle that needed putting together.. But with missing pieces! I think Trent & Dominique was on the brink of self-discovering. Early on I think In Trent and Dominique relationship they wanted to take things slow and they were not in denial about their love. I love the glow and the blazing fire of Love I felt from pg. 304 Trent told his Mom to come with them... That touches me deeply! Trent had undying & unconditional Love in his Heart..Truly Love does cover a multitude of sins!!! Love, clashes and challenged: Oppose to Luke &Catherine I like to call their relationship: Clash of the Titans! Liking to the Greek Gods & all the Drama that surrounds the Greek Gods, Challenges, clashes, fires, and Passions, last but NOT least.. Love! Luke was both Adonis & Hercules In one (Cath‘s protector), & Catherine Is Venus the goddess of womanly charm and love. Venus was the mother of Cupid. I felt a kindering spirit In Catherine she was.. Soooo YOUNG! Wise, a prodigy & beyond her years. Always showing unconditional Love & care! Catherine was a Sweet Spitfire, Luke & Catherine totally complimented and complete each other. The saying of OLD still holds true today.. That they are sooo much alike until they can't get along.. Holds true with them in their beginning. Luke & Catherine agree to dis agree about being judgmental about the opposite sex, they bump heads a Kazillions times! I wont get It twisted...I confess Catherine also had preconceived notions about men too. Loves protected embrace: By the same token of their opinions of philosophy & Idea thoughts, they did touch and agree on helping others. Luke was a softy but strong tough warrior. He had a lot of respect for his Mom, and others. I got a big kick out of Ruth she had me In stitches when she told Luke he had a suspicious mind after he put two & two together with the help of her chatterbox friends.. Tee heee! OOOh man Luke was being bad, he tried to sell his brother down the river.. By telling his Mom to marry off Morgan.. That he wouldn’t suspect a thing.. Poor Luke he was tired of his Mom’s antics..(Heyyyy.. I could just squeeze & hug Ruth) smile! I Love how he was very close, and stood by his family even from a very, young child to adult. He was very dedicated and faithful handsome man. Catherine needed the protected embrace that Luke’s Love provided for her, and they both deserve each other to lean on and love. Love challenges fires and Passions: Luke and Catherine’s relationship was buck wild, swampy, steamy, and erotic! For example: I felt the unleash of sexual tension flaring and misting in the air from the begining with them. Luke’s question was sort of subconsciously provocative suggested for example: on pg. 32 Luke’s statement to Catherine, You.. Make them sweat, do you? It seem right there Catherine awaken & challenge the wild beast In Luke! Wow she got his attention likes to no other woman could! Catherine penetrated and challenge his senses.. Now that's my girl! She bought out the Beast man in him. Catherine was, strong, tough & a Rarity destine to be Luke’s Soul mate. Luke figured it out early on before Catherine. Luke may also have the power of six senses when he was communicating with Hero.. But Catherine’s power of pure love for the animal ruled out! Image a sexy warrior falls In Love with YOU...OOOh man...Catherine wasn’t gonna NEVER get away from Luke...whummmmp...Luke was truly buck wild and almost did it the Wild West way. His next plan probably... next was to kidnap Catherine If she didn’t come to her senses. It was Clash of fires and Passions all the way live! Too many women or the wrong women left Luke with the wrong impression. I felt that Catherine personify any miss conceptions about Luke's notions that all women were...illogical and scatter brain. She proves in her every "action" that she was smart, brave, and his EQUAL! I was cheering & hooraying her on when she let sexy ...wild man...smile...Luke know with a steadfast & unwavering Mind that I'm grown, and have my own thoughts and Ideas..I make my own decision whether right or wrong...I ate that up.... Yesssssss go girl with your bad self! Bantling blunt! She wasn’t afraid to stand her ground with Luke or anyone. Catherine had much unmeasured depth & purpose. She could stand her ground, and up to Luke for that matter, It was like she was a challenged that called him out. They were two very, very, completive spirited Souls. OOOh I was enchanted by the magic In Luke’s music.. I say Romantic, simply madly romantic! Even though Luke was a loner he chose to be It all so seem that Luke met women who could NOT get past his stunning Looks. Airheads or dumb giggly blond type so to speak. Catherine was who she was she didn't felt she stood in any one‘s.. Shadow. And unlike Dominique (even though she was beautiful, she experience being treated like a trophy) Trent loved her Inside out & she did him as well. Loves silken embrace: Dominique(from the bk.ONLY HERS another great bk.) was beautiful talented and smart but she was just starting to live, she was looking for in dependency. Catherine’s career was well established, and was the opposite without insecurities. Catherine Love unselfishly she gave her all and she felt.. (Perhaps scared but I think giving up on TRUE love.. later frighten her the MOST and living with out her Soul mate, In the end too) she once felt that she, wasn't whole with out conception of Luke’s baby by her. He was a family man who would make a wonderful father. Catherine and Luke knew themselves and were comfortable in their skins. They were and NOT trying to find themselves so to speak. Catherine & Luke’s silken embrace was prehistoric steamy Hot & fiery Passionate. I Loved the reaction Catherine got out of Luke when she asked him if he ever flirted with a woman? She came through the pages as being.. Sultry & seductive.,. And with Real love thrown in the mix well blend..& a GREAT READ.. Heyyy...ya can't beat the power of Love!!!!!

    This is my first Francis Ray novel. I'm a romance fanatic, but for some reason, I've been hesitant about reading her books, despite all the good reviews that her books routinely receive. I think I was too overwhelmed by all the series that she seems to have written and couldn't figure out where to start. I wanted to read someting different, so I decided to give this book a try.

Anytime I read a book in 2 days, it's pretty good. There were actually a couple of storylines, and all held my attention and were easy to follow, which is not always the case. Overall, the book was pretty good, but IMO, everything was wrapped up too neatly. Everybody was soooo nice. And although I liked Luke and Catherine, the book lacked heat and heat is a requirement for me in my romance novels. The love scenes were kinda nondescript; I was...unmoved by them. I actually had more questions than answers in the very first love scene: Was Catherine a virgin? Did they use protection? They were talking, but I was not getting what they were saying - or trying not to say. I may give Francis Ray another chance, but I don't think I'll read a book that's part of a series. This book was written a while ago, so maybe I'll try one of her more recent offerings. Maybe she's spicing things up a little now.

    This was the book that starting me reading all the books by this author, and made me start reading all her books. I'm truly a Francis Ray fan. I even started my daughter reading her books, and now we're both hooked.

    One son down 3 to go. This is a good read. I needed a break in between my paranormal reads that have been beyond disappointing. Anyway, moving on to book 2. The Grayson men have definitely peeked my interest.

    It was a good start to the series, but some parts were a little too slow and the story started to drag.

    Upon finishing Until There Was You I had run the entire gamut of emotions. I laughed, I cried and I was sublimely happy with the characters. Cordelia and Liam are the type of couple that I love to read about. They don't simply fall in love, they have to work for it. Additionally, there is still friction in the relationship. Books where they simply fall in love too easily don't interest me. I want to see the arguements that lead to a great love story.

Books where they simply fall in love too easily don't interest me. I want to see the arguements that lead to a great love story. The way their personalities conflict and then begin to mesh was beautifully done. Liam as a leading male was a very complex character. On one hand he was a bad boy and on the other an incredible father. Just when you think you have him figured out you find something new to appreciate in his character. Cordelia or Posey was a strong female lead. She was independent and had her own agenda that doesn't change because there is a guy in the picture. I do hate how often the fact that she looks like a boy is referenced. It reminded me a little of Jane Eyre. She was beautiful to him and in her own way. All in all I give the book a 4/5. I really enjoyed spending one of my last days of summer vacation reading it.

    For a "trashy romance novel," this was shockingly good. I actually grew to care about the characters and was never bored. Ms. Ray is an excellent writer and knows how to tell a story. I also love love the Santa Fe setting and the family background - Native American meets African American. It doesn't hurt that everyone is drop dead sexy and delicious. A real steamy page turner. Hell I think I will read the entire series.

    The beginning of this series of books about the Graysons of New Mexico. Love this family which appeals to the visual imagination of beautiful people and their money makes them rich but of course all self made. Love this matchmaker mother who I'm sure is me because I always envision that I can match people up better than themselves. Looking forward to reading the whole series even though they aren't newly written.

    From the very first word until the last I was hooked. This was one of those stories that I could lose myself in time and time again. I love Francis Ray! I never want to put her books down and I just want to read them over and over again. I read all her books many years ago and decided to read them again. I'm just as pleased the second time around. If you're a hopeless romantic and appreciate a good love story you'll love her stories and you'll fall madly in love with all the characters

    This is the first book I've read by Francis Ray and I thought it was a very good read! I loved the story and the characters and I can't wait to see what happens with the rest of Luke's siblings when I read the rest of the books in this series. I can't wait to read all the rest of the books by this author and I am now a fan!

    I think this was my first Francis Ray book & I really enjoyed it. The story was well rounded, though the last third didn't really need to be there. It felt tacked on to make the book longer. I really enjoyed Luke & Catherine, they had great chemistry. The sex scenes were meh but overall I really enjoyed the book & getting to know the Grayson family.

    Stephanie Seawright

    Good first book in a series that is sure to please. Standard boy meets girl. A little drama. Girl leaves boy to save him because she is so selfless. He shows her the error of her ways. They sex each other a lot. She is probably a virgin. She is honored to have her cherry. Same old thing. But again interesting and the characters are likeable.

    I liked the book but there was so much going on, it was almost to much. I really thought she would've gotten pregnant by the end of the book. I already dislike the mom, so I know I'm going to hate her even more in the next books.

    Luke And Catherine's love was so sweet. Even though she was strong and independent, she had her insecurities and he put on this player boy act. In the end, she tamed him. I LOOOVE when that happens. Their love was hot and sweet.

    Too Much mind-Blowing Sex This book had good elements. I liked the elements that educated about Domestic Violence. However, the repetitive and graphic scenes of sex between Luke and Catherine got old. Overall, I held it to be an average story.

    Terrible!!! This Kindle book keeps repeating paragraphs and not ending correctly. I'm in the first chapter and almost the whole chapter is highlighted with mistakes. I wasted my money on this one
