Another Dawn: 08/05/08
Sandra Brown has been writing romances under a variety of names since 1981. By the late 1980s, she settled on writing all her books as Sandra Brown and in the 1990s, her earlier works were re-released. Those that were under pseudonyms were released now with Sandra Brown listed as the author.
Another Dawn, the sequel to Sunset Embrace, both published in 1985 is stylistically between her earliest works (see my review of Seduction by Design) and her later ones (see my review of Envy). Betrayed at the altar, Banner Coleman decides to carve her own destiny by starting her own ranch. She also has her sights on long time family friend and ranch hand, Jake Langston.
I normally like frontier novels with strong, independently minded female protagonists. Unfortunately for Another Dawn, I've read better novels with very similar plots. Another Dawn is too full of clichés, gratuitous sex and sexism.
