    1. Better Every TimeRe-read: 3/7/17This popped up on my feed today and made we want to read it. AGAIN. Re-read: 7/4/15 5 AMAZING StarsThis book really took me by surprise. Western/historical romance is one of my all time favorite genres, but I had never read or heard of this author before. I don't even remember what prompted me to read this, but it was just outstanding. The writing and storytelling was fantastic and the characters were so well fleshed out and truly tangible in a way I haven't exper [...]

    2. As he finally stopped fighting sleep, he wondered if maybe just occasionally the gods designed a woman fit for a king or a prince and then gave her to an ordinary man. Maybe they did such a thing once in a while, knowing an ordinary man would treasure her more, love her better. Maybe they even let him keep her — for a while.Wow! Where to begin well, I'll start with that quote. It's one of my favorite hero quotes from any book I've read, and in just a few sentences shows us Cord's hope and his [...]

    3. **Spoilers**I discovered this little gem of a book from reviews by Danielle Lori and Val ⚓️ Shameless & Bitchy Skanky ⚓️ Steamy Reads Mrs. Danvers-Tate-Snow. Thanks, ladies.Where to start with this book. First off, I savored the reading of Eyes of Silver, Eyes of Gold, prolonging the experience for as long as I could. Secondly, everything I thought I knew about racial prejudice, this story amplified to a thousand degree.Annie and Cord, our MCs. Annie is white and Cord is half Comanch [...]

    4. Not just a romance, but a love story, beautifully toldAt twenty-eight Anne Wells should be too old to be running away from home. But her wealthy, controlling and abusive father wants her married, even if it is to a man as old and as mean as he is. After leaving home and sheltering from a storm in a barn overnight, Anne wakes up the next morning to a familiar pair of unusual, gold eyes watching her.The long silence threatened to become awkward, so she ventured, "Good morning.""Mornin'." His voice [...]

    5. That was so awesome!I was really wondering why all my friends in think that this is a very good book – especially because most of them do not share the same tastes in books and especially in romance books.I think the main reason for the love for this particular book is that it is the book full of small satisfying victories. Anne Wells and Cord Bennett have survived being different in a world of average people until they reached their late twenties. Anne at this age is considered an old spinst [...]

    6. Eyes of Silver, Eyes of Gold was completely unexpected. It’s one of those stories that touches your heart, and has you thinking about the characters for days to come. I really didn’t think this author was gonna be able to pull it off, being that they both agree to a marriage and are amicable to each other before twenty percent, and this was a long book. I can’t stay invested in an everyday relationship—there has to be tension between the characters, not just plot-wise. But I was so wrong [...]

"When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others."- by Peace Pilgrim – (American teacher and spiritual leader and peace prophet, 1908 – 1981)"There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love."- by Bryant H. McGill –********************************************************************"His daddy had brown eyes, but those eyes of his are yellow, yellow like a wolf’s.""The color don’t make no nevermind.

    8. I'll admit upfront that I read this book in response to its regular, suspicious pimping on the romance boards. No book out there has all five-star reviews, at least not legitimate ones, but I'd have to read it to know for sure. Now that I have read it, I'll say that maybe some of those accolades are honest. If you don't pay attention to writing skill or mind too much telling or info dump, the plot is compelling enough that a pure plot reader could enjoy a book like this just fine.The action ope [...]

    9. 5 Fantastic Stars"Take him and cut him out in little stars. And he will make the face of heaven so fine - that all the world will be in love with night"Shakespeare (Romeo & Juliet) This book should come with a Warning alerting its victims that once started, you'll not want to stop until you've reached the very last page!I was drawn to this book by a review written by one of my friends, Denise, and immediately purchased. However, I put off reading it for weeks because I wasn't a big fan of We [...]

    10. 5++ Stars! I could read this book a 100 times and this story would never get old!Hero meets Heroine under harrowing circumstances and they stand united and committed to each other throughout the book no matter who or what gets in their way. No questions asked, always have each other's backs, soul mates through and through. Just beautiful! Made my heart swell! That's it, in a nutshell. It met up to the hype, friend's recommendations, and exceeded my expectations! Every time I think about this sto [...]

    11. 3,5 Promising StarsThe first thought crossing my mind when I turned the last page of this book was the realisation I had just dealt with a rough diamond. It's a debut, so I think it has the natural right to be so in a sense and fortunately the lack of finishing did nothing to lessen the impact of a story vivid and powerful in its raw essentiality, like the love, the people, the land and the times it portrays.Set in an 1885 Colorado still dominated by a blind and unapologetic white privilege and [...]

    12. Oh, why did I finish this so quickly?! Why?!I'm going to be vulgarly blunt, I fucking love Ellen O'Connell. Love her. Admittedly, these books might be just a teensy bit melodramatic, but these stories are some of the most engaging I've read in a very long time. I didn't think I'd like this one more than I liked her other two books. Ha! I think the only reason I might like Dancing on Coals more is because I absolutely adored Katherine Grant in that book. Don't get me wrong, Anne Wells is no shrin [...]

    13. There simply aren't enough words for me to accurately describe how much I loved this book. I need extra stars! After reading so many great prods, I finally started this last night. Aside from a bit of confusion by an odd writing style, it's actually really fabulous. Cord is one of those heroes with a secretive sort of past that is challenging to get to know. And all the while, you're hurting for him, wanting him to open up to Annie. The plot is fairly fast paced. The H/h meet each other on page [...]

    14. 3.5 stars. I may clean this review up, but for now here are my initial thoughts.I thought it was pretty good overall. It ended with a really good finish, and the narrative voice that was bugging me early on in the book was greatly toned down during the last third of the book. (The first half or so of the book felt like I was watching a movie where the actors rarely spoke, instead it was mostly narrated from the authors POV. It was frustrating and pulled me out of the story repeatedly.) But the c [...]

    15. 4 starsHappy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.-Leo TolstoyThis was a truly unique and lovely story. But as much as it was a love story, it was a social story even more. The romance between Anne and Cord(which I LOVED) took a back burner to the family drama that was just a bit too much.Clan Wells-racism, bullying and, in the end, sadistic tendenciesHer father a bully, her brother a sycophant and her mother not brave enough to stand up against them, Anne Wells [...]

    16. I stayed away from this one for a long time because it was so heavily promoted by the author. But I did read Dancing on Coals by this author and really enjoyed it so I gave in and bought this one. I enjoyed it. A good story line that didn't shy away from some brutality but also had charm. I am a fan of marriage of convenience stories and this one worked well. The plot did not revolve around whether or not they would sleep together but how they would work out their marriage which I think is much [...]

    17. ** 3 1/2 stars **This wasn't a bad book at all, it just wasn't great. The writing needed improvement, it had so much telling and not nearly enough just showing by actions.The leads were nice characters but I was frustrated by how ridiculous their families were and how they let them affect their lives so much. Her father was just too evil, he seemed like a charicature of a villain. It seemed unbelievable how badly everyone treated them, it was too simplistic. Eventually people were better but I h [...]

    18. This is a wonderful book it had me laughing and crying all over the place. It's a great book with love, humour, drama and so much more.

    19. Contents:  Several sex scenes, not very explicit. Violence, including severe beatings. Minimal swearing, no religious cussing, lots of ugly white-supremacist language. About a dozen typos.3.5 stars for Ellen O'Connell's first book. I enjoyed this eventful story, despite some quibbles. I totally felt the love between Cord and Annie! O'Connell is becoming a favorite for me in the western genre. She is the author of Dancing on Coals (engrossing and unique,reviewed here) and also Beautiful Bad Man [...]

    20. 5+ Half Breed Stars!!!! There's not much I can say about this book that I'm sure hasn't already been said with all the five star ratings here on GR's!! So on that note all I'm going to say is I absolutely loooooved this book, why on earth did it take me so long to read this?!! If your a fan of cowboys, Historicals, and HEA's this is a must read!! You will fall in love with Cord Bennett and his Ti-gress Annie Wells.

    21. I can not believe how much I loved this book. I mean REALLY loved it. I have had it on my Kindle since October but have pushed off reading it as the cover is a little cheesy, and some of the reviews implied it was very amateurish. Eyes. old school in the sense that is an old-fashioned romance with a capital R. No silly quirks, no gimmicks, no BDSM (not that I'm opposed to it), but just a story of the subtle and sweet development of love between two fun and honorable characters. Very character dr [...]

    22. This author is a GENIUS!!!!I didn't like this book - I LOVED IT!!!I loved the way words flow, how the little quips were inserted in the story, the way every single thing was explained, the way the love story was born and grewI loved Anne: her strenght, her courage, her enthusiasm, her optimims. She embodies the saying that works makes a man (or in this case the woman) free! I loved that she isn't afraid of hard work, that she took care of Cord when he was injured, that she defended him against e [...]

    23. 5+++ "A real love story!" Stars!!!More to come later. For now, I loved every single sentence. Cord is my newest book husband. Upgraded from boyfriend. Anne is one of my all-time favorite leading ladies. I will not forget theses two ever! Loved, loved, loved so much!! Happy reading!!!

    24. Annie Wells has just run away from home. It may be a little late in life as she is 27, but after spending months locked in her room by her father with only scraps for food she finally manages to escape. Hiding for the night in a barn, she doesn't realize that it is Cord Bennett's, a man with a reputation of the devil as well as being half Indian, but Annie has never believed this and is proven right when he offers her food and shelter and money to escape. That's when the mob, led by Annie's fath [...]

    25. Again I am the unpopluar reviewer.What promised to be an intense Lorraine Heath-like western romance went downhill for me at about chapter 13.Instead of giving a summary which is already provided by others, I'm going to list what I didn't like.1. The writing was all tell no show.2. Long strecthes of unnecessary descriptions of horses and gardening. I mean chapter upon chapter about it.3. The romance was lacking to non-existant. There was no build up to affection. We are just told "she likes him" [...]

    26. This is my second book by Ms. O'Connell. What is special about her books?The conflict and drama are mostly caused by the prejudice of ignorant people. The villains should be sent to hell immediately. Just saying.Thumbs up to characterization.I don’t have to worry about the H turning into a cheating man-whore or the h going into a temporary annoying status just to piss me off:/ Basically, I trust the characters.The couple has to fight against all odds to get their HEA.It is a good pick if you a [...]

    27. 4.5. I want to give it 5 stars- because it was amazing, and there's little I would change, but some technical flaws won't let me, however minor they may be.I happened upon this author when her story,Dancing on Coals, hit everyone's fav list a little while back and everyone who read it raved over it. I, of course, had to try it for myself and, much to my delight, found it to be an incredible tale as well!I actually think I like this story better As always with a one I truly love, I'm struggling t [...]

    28. I really enjoyed reading this story! The writing and story were good, and the characters were extremely likable.I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the ending!What a great find :))

    29. This is another book that I recently read - yet again! I'm so glad I'm a rereader. I feel a bit sad for those who only read a book once no matter how much they enjoyed it.July 29/17I just reread this book for about the 5th time. It only gets better with each reading. It has become a real 'comfort read', a book to read when I still want to read but life seems to get me down.Wow!! Just Wow!! I just got this one yesterday and I started reading around 2:30-3:00ish and couldn't go to bed until I read [...]

    30. This was one of those cheap books by an author I had never heard about. This was also pre-Good Reads for me. So, I was flying blind. I love a good western and had read some good information on on this one and needed something to read. I've since read everthing by this author I can find. I've recommended this book and have loaned it to friends. Well written and a book you'll read again and again. It will be a "go to" book for me.This was a heartwarming story that shot straight to my heart. I lov [...]
