    One thought on “The Reluctant Lark”

    1. First published in 1983, this is one of those effed-up stories that posed as Romance back in the day. It's about a fan who had been following an Irish singer nicknamed "Ireland's Mournful Dove" for five years. He's had a detective follow her and takes pictures for all the shrines in his various homes. Finally, he cant wait anymore (now that she is 22 instead of the 17 when he first noticed her) and decides to kidnap her. He holds her in his cabin in Canada and tells her that he loves her and the [...]

    2. "The Reluctant Lark" is the story of Rand and Sheena.Now if you're someone who is not fond of the stalker and kidnapping genre, this isn't for you. But for a fan like me, it was perfect.The premise is that Sheena is a famous singer, who sings melancholic songs and lives with her controlling uncle who took her and her now dead brother in. She is Irish and famous worldwide, but has never found happinessAll changes when she starts noticing a familiar face in the crowds, and soon after a confrontati [...]

    3. Sometime ago Rand spotted Sheena, a folk singer known as Ireland’s Mournful Dove at one of her concerts. He sees right thru her brave facade and falls for her before he even meets her. Falls for her to the point of creepy obsession. He has pictures of her all over his office and follows her to all her concerts. When he sees her conniving uncle continuing to push her to the point of exhaustion, he takes matters into his own hands and rescues her. He sweeps her off to a cabin in the woods where [...]

    4. I'm one of Iris Johansen's many fans, but let's just say this book, written early in her career, wasn't my cuppa tea.It's waaaay too much of a stretch for me to swallow the concept of "romance", when a billionaire becomes obsessed with a young woman after he sees her picture in the newspaper and then single-mindedly plots to make her his own. With the help of well-paid private investigators, he essentially stalks her every waking moment for the next five years, while preparing and stocking his h [...]

    5. Johansen's protagonists seem to blend into one another. Nothing really stands out, character-wise. The men are bossy and arrogant. The women are gorgeous, and no matter how "stubborn" the author describes them, they are all submissive to the men. Annoying after awhile. Rand is borderline stalker. Actually, borderline is too nice because he is straight up stalker, obsessive behavior. And I honestly don't know why that is supposed to be attractive.

    6. Honestly the H seemed a psycho at the start and definitely gave out the creepy stalker vibes, the story turned out good and ended well.

    7. This book was a bit on the creepy side - like I'd expect from Iris' thrillers. The stalker theme creeped me out but I will say the ending was unexpected.
