Literally just finished reading this and wow, what a great book! I’ll write a nice review later but just needed to get some first impressions written down so I don’t forget!

This was a emotional rollercoaster! The heroine was naive, but sweet and not annoying. I actually thought her character made sense and perfect for the hero. A lot of people would complain about the heroine. She’s not annoying and she’s not stupid just extremely sheltered. She never acts in a way that is stupid but more like a person in a foreign country who doesn’t understand certain ways. She most certainly isn’t TSTL. She doesn’t do anything that is stupid or make your eyes roll. Like run into a fire when specifically told not to.

Is it wrong to be ignorant? Does it automatically means you’re uneducated and stupid? We all ignorant to a lot of things. Just because someone knows more than you doesn’t make them better than you.

Luke went through a lot in his past that explains his behaviors. I wish he opened up more to the heroine, but I kind of understand why. He didn’t want to taint her world for ugly things.

It was funny and very all the moments the hero was going to ‘lay down the law’ with the heroine but ended up doing something he wouldn’t normally do just because she was so sweet. He was completely besotted with and it was fun to watch.

There’s plenty of groveling and it was quite heart wrenching and painful to watch. I wish there was more of an ending but this was written in the 90s and I don’t think it was kind of a standard back then. I think if it didn’t ended so suddenly it would’ve completed the character arcs more.

Another note, it was interesting see how the men controlled Cassie. I wish she had more character arc to make her own choices without being influenced by others. But it’s understandable considering the time period her position. But in the end, aren’t we all influenced by our parents until we leave them and learn the world with our own eyes? ( )

I didn't think I was going to like Simply Love. The heroine is incredibly naive and the hero, a ruthless jerk, but it worked for me. I had a hard time putting the book down - I loved it! ( )

The Hero of the book starts out as a major jerk...the upside which makes the story a worthwhile read is the fact that he learns from his mistakes and grows into a good person ( )

I love Catherine Anderson's work. Sharply defined characters, a hero who was a real villain in the beginning, but his heart's desire gradually softened him, making him realise that he has a conscience, and redeems himself.
I particularly liked Father Tully. He came across as a lovable old rascal. His verbal sparring with an inebriated Luke was sparkling with wit, and very entertaining. ( )

From BackCover:
SIMPLY WILD
The wealthy owner of a Colorado mining empire, Luke Taggart has seen and done it all. Now, bored with saloons, gambling and loose women, he feels a restless yearning--for what, he doesn't know. Until he meets a woman as fresh and pure as a spring morning--and vows to possess her...at any cost.

SIMPLY INNOCENT
Compassionate, radiant and breathtakingly lovely, Cassandra Zerek has a charming naivete that seems to blind her to Luke's seductive schemes--and an unwavering belief in the magical ability of love to transform this frog masquerading as a prince into the man of her dreams.

SIMPLY LOVE
Soon Cassie has aroused not only Luke's desire, but his conscience--most unexpectedly--as well. But neither gold nor guile will make her his own. Only the most precious gift of all can win her: Luke's deep and abiding love. ( )
