Wild Island Sands Reviews
This review is of “Wild Island Sands” by Sonya T. Pelton.The book opens with an explanation of Greek mythology, as the heroine’s name is Pandora; Pandora St. Ives to use her full nomenclature. Pandora lives in Hawaii with her aunt and uncle. (Her parents passed earlier). Afraid of being pushed into a loveless marriage, Pandora flees to the mainland, to San Francisco, to live with her cousin, Cara Kalee. Pandora has an accident in California, and is saved by the houseman for Rogan Thorn, the hero of the book. Rogan, a shipping magnate, owns his family’s company, Thorn Navigation. Rogan and Pandora are immediately attracted to each other. But, as in most romance novels, there are barriers to their happiness. Those barriers are: Pandora’s amnesia from her accident; Cara, one of Rogan’s former mistresses; Rogan's other paramours; Walter Riddock, Rogan’s professional and personal arch-rival, and, perhaps most importantly, Rogan’s health issue.Rogan kidnaps Pandora to prevent her from marrying Riddock, and forces her to marry him. Later, Pandora moves back to Hawaii, to be followed by Rogan. They ignore each other, argue and have sex. This same pattern follows them back to San Francisco, where Pandora gives birth to their daughter, and she and Rogan have their Happily Ever After.Upside: Well.... I finished the book! Beyond that…Downside: Like many of Ms. Pelton’s books, “Wild Island Sands” is a hot mess of tens of thousands of words-over 526 pages-yet saying absolutely nothing. I felt no connection to either Pandora or Rogan, nor do they have any chemistry with each other. Ms. Pelton tries to manipulate her readers’ emotions with a storyline about how Rogan’s life is affected by his parents neglect, but goes nowhere with this story. There is a mystery, that is so poorly written that it doesn’t matter at all when it’s solved. Characters are introduced, then abandoned, or brought in and written about, but never go anywhere.Sex: A few scenes, which like the rest of the book, are barely noticeable. Violence: It is implied that Pandora killed a man; this is not true, but she has horrific flashbacks about the murder. Bottom Line: Ms. Pelton has written at least one book that I liked “Dakota Flame”, but beyond that, everything I’ve read by her has been total dreck headed straight for the garbage bin after I’ve wasted days of my life reading it.
