    1. I think a lot of these earliest Johansen category romances are downright bad but this one was downright charming in its unabashed unPCness.Heroine climbs the walls of the H's Hearst Castle-like estate to ask nicely for him to donate $2 million of prime California real estate for a wildlife preserve. H is immediately entranced with the h and agrees if the h will stay with him for 2 months as his "pet". "I happen to want to cage and hold you," he tells her. Be still my beating heart!In the meantim [...]



    2. "The Lady and The Unicorn" is the story of Rafe and Janna.When Janna breaks into the eccentric Billionaire Rafe's house to plead him to save her wildlife sanctuary, she never expects to enamor him or be blackmailed into staying with him for two months.Rafe is instantly entranced by her beauty and simplicity, and slowly becomes obsessed with her.We have a super jealous possessive hero, sweet kindhearted heroine, smoking chemistry and lovemaking, loads of jealousy and a HEA.It is always a pleasant [...]


    3. I received this book from Random House Publishing Group -Loveswept via Netgalley for my honest review.The Lady and the Unicorn took me back. I mean literally took me back, I grew up with my mothers steamy romance novels, Johanna Lindsey and Rosemary Rogers and that was the general feel of this book.The hero, Rafe, (squee love that name for a hero!!) is a self made billionaire, jaded by life, he just takes what he wants. He is not used to hearing the word no, and he has definitely not had to purs [...]


    4. 3.5 starsI had no idea what to expect based on the title. I read a lot of fantasy books and this was recommended by a friend so I bypassed the synopsis and dig into task. Well, it wasn't a fantasy but a modern day romance but the story was different. I felt her emotions when she learned where the fur coat came from. He was hard to like at parts but he did change my mind. He improved a lot.


    5. Janna Cannon is passionate about saving endangered animals. When the reserve lease is in jeopardy, Janna devises a plan to enlist Rafe Santine’s help.Rafe Santine is a self made billionaire. Driven toward success in everything that he does, Rafe is not use to the word no. He was enamored by the gumption displayed by Janna so Rafe decides Janna is his newest conquest. He didn’t intend for the tables to be turned on him and soon discovers he doesn’t want to live without Janna.The only proble [...]


    6. You could tell from the start that the hero was very attracted to the heroine and would do almost anything to posses her. It was a sweet story in the love story sense. I would have liked to see more animal interaction with the heroine and animals. I didn't fully understand the whole grandma thing and one off putting aspect of the story was the dialogue between hero and Heroine. 'my earth mother' my little pocohontas and other cringe worthy phrases. Other than that it was a good read.


    7. Rafe is a man that gets the things he wants, the way he wants them. He came up from nothing his refusal to hear the word no and his drive to succeed has made him a billionaire. It has also gotten him basically put on house arrest due to driving himself so hard he got ill and needs to recover. Rafe is bored doing nothing which makes his already angry and intimidating personality even worse. That is until Janna literally scales the walls to his “castle” determined to talk to him about saving t [...]


    8. Janna Cannon will do anything to save her wildlife reserve, after countless efforts to get in touch with the elusive Rafe Santine, Janna has resorted to breaking and entering. Rafe doesn’t quite know what to do with the woman who scaled his walls and tried to enter his estate without permission, she is stunning, intriguing, and completely like any woman he has met before. Rafe devises a plan to get to know Janna, she agrees to stay on his estate and whatever that entails, he gives her another [...]



    9. Quick read that I enjoyed. Rafe is very much an alpha male but Janna didn't let him run over her. I wish there had been more about her ability with animals that was kinda just skimmed over.


    10. Endangered loveI always admire Iris Johansen ' s way with a story. Predictable, but great fun nevertheless . Having worked with endangered species, however, it's a bit off base on that score. But then, who cares? Enjoy the story for what it is.

    12. The Lady and the Unicorn by Iris Johansen was originally published in the mid 80's. This book has been re-issued in digital format. This is a Kensington Loveswept publication.

When Janna finds a suitable property for the animals she finds it belongs to a billionaire that isn't even using the propert [...]


    13. ARC received by publisher via NetGalleyRafe Santine was strong and unyielding.Nobody ever refused him anything.Besides that almost overpowering virility, he radiated an aura of power and leashed danger obviously very intriguing to certain types of women.Janna Cannon is prepared to do everything in her power to save the endangered animals of the wild animal reserve.So she tries, and captures the interest of Rafe in a very unforgettable way.“He finds the situation a bit unusual.”Santine’s ey [...]


    14. 3 STARSI remember reading The Lady and the Unicorn when it first came out years ago as a Loveswept book #29. In fact I still may have it in a box in the attic. I still like it. The plot is still good. I still like the characters. Their is still too much sex in it.Janna Cannon is a very caring person. She works at a wildlife that has just lost it's lease. If they don't find a big enough land for the animals they will have to be sent to different zoos. They found some land but they can't get a hol [...]


    15. Rafe Santine is under doctor's orders: He needs to stay put in his coastal California mansion for two months to recuperate from the pneumonia that nearly killed him. Despite a retinue of mistresses to keep the powerful tycoon occupied, Rafe struggles against boredom--until a stunning woman literally drops onto his estate. She has high demands of him, but Rafe has even greater demands of her. He knows instantly that he must possess every facet of the enigmatic Janna. But the only thing she'll giv [...]


    16. Iris Johansen has written a lot of stories for Loveswept and some of them are my all time favorite comfort reads. She'd the exception to my rule of not really liking contemporary romance. I have only recently come across this story in it's new edition - not sure if it has been revamped or not since original release. This wasn't one of her better offerings but it had the trademark strong/powerful/rich hero jaded by life and spoiled by ultimate power - turned on his head upon our heroine's appeara [...]


    17. Janna Cannon is passionate about preserving wildlife and improving the life of animals. Which is what brings her to the home of Rafe Santine, she tried to get an appointment with him. When that did not work she decides to use xtreme measures, she scales the walls around his estate. She gets over the walls only to find guard dogs, but luckily for her she seems to have a seventh sense when it comes to animals. Which puzzles Rafe and intrigues him. He thinks she wants to entertain him for the weeke [...]


    18. I enjoyed this older romance by Iris Johanssen. While reading it, the differences in the romances of today and the time period during which the book was written were pretty obvious, but I liked the book anyway. This story has a very dominant male, one that is more aggressive than most current romantic heroes. The heroine was sweeter and more innocent than most of the main female characters of today. As a longtime fan of Johansen, I enjoyed again reading one of her earlier novels.Jenna Cannon is [...]


    19. I do find it funny that the book is published as "A Loveswept Contemporary Romance" and yet the copyright is 1983. I guess Loveswept is reissuing their books in e-formats.Despite the book age, it does seem to be a timeless romance that could take place at any time (except for the early mention of a Chevette who really remembers that car).It's a fun story about a billionaire, Rafe, and an activist, Janna, who meet under unusual circumstances (she broke into his estate). Rafe strikes a bargain wi [...]


    20. The Lady and the Unicorn by Iris Johansen is a fun and sweet romance from beginning to end.Janna Cannon’s only hope to save the endangered animal in the wild animal reserve is breaking into Rafe Santine’s home and convincing him to donate land to them. Breaking in will be the easy part, even with all the security and the guard dogs. The hard part will be convincing him to donate prime real state land to them.Rafe has been bored since he got his doctor’s orders to stay put for two months. H [...]


    21. Janna Cannon's character is particularly intriguing. She is smart, pretty but not drop dead gorgeous, passionate about the animal reserve she works at, but not worldly. Yet, her ability to relate and communicate w/animals allows her to study human nature and approach human beings on their own level. A kind and compassionate person attracts Rafe Santine in addition to her physique. She has a lot of guts to overcome barriers to put in her way. She needs Rafe Santine's help to save her animal prese [...]


    22. I read this book when I was a teenager. It was among the first adult romances I ever read and I liked Johansen's style of writing. It is the first in a series, which I devoured one after another as they came out. Johansen has created a lovely imaginary place called Sedikan in these books and I enjoyed many hours there in my mind. Fun romance series, I really liked it.


    23. I didn't like the characters or there personalities. Or mabey it was the fact of blindly he fell in love or lust and thought of her as a object to conquer. She quietly goes along with it. But I gave it one stars beacuse frankly its a awful love story.



    24. My mistake. I thought I was reading a crime story. Duh. Good beach romance novel. Good speed reading book, too. Average. Fair writing, predictable from start to finish.


    25. I read this book when it was first released. I fell in love with iris way back then. She is still a wonderful author today. Pure innocent love story. Enjoy.
