    My review in EnglishMy labels: about books, intriguing, Dark Vortex, Stella Marie Alden, magic, English, Adventure, handsome characters, wizards, Bücher, love, Romance, readingHello, my dear followers and friends, I'm sorry for not being so much active. My father was not so feeling well and I also had some health problems of my own. But now I'll start writing on my blog again :D!One of the last wonderful books I read is called Dark Vortex by Stella Marie Alden. It is a novel about: MAGIC, ROMANCE and a bit of PARANORMAL ACTIVITIES;)Now I'll firstly introduce the main characters a bit before getting to the story: There are two basic wizard groups: the Warrior wizards and the Healers. Warrior wizards and healers form kind of packs. These packs consist of their own family and the wizards who have married into the group. Warriors and healers mostly only trust their own group and family.Warrior wizards are warlocks who fought against other groups in the past. These times are officially over though. They early learn to fight and have offensive magic powers. Healers are wizards who can see the aura of other people and can prepare herbal concotions. They have defensive powers.Jack Fialko: The sexy and handsome Jack is in truth a powerful and strong wizard. He is a headstrong and charismatic man and the leader of a warrior witch pack, so Jack learned to be commanding. Nevertheless he also has a kind and charming nature. Zoe: Zoe is an intelligent, witty person who fully believes in logical and coherent explanations and processes. She can also be very determined if necessary and has a rebellious streak. The main story is about: Zoe learns to get to know Jack by caring for him at her cousin Olivia's Natural Herbal remedies constitution. Olivia, her cousin is a healer and New Age supporter who "took her under her wing" after Zoe found out about her remaining family members. At the beginning, Jack is about to loose consciousness because he is in much pain. Based on his torn shirt, it can only be assumed that he was in a fight. Zoe feels utterly alone and deserted with this task. Suddenly Zoe notice a kind of black, living creature who is sitting on the chest of Jack and which seems to suck all the energy out of him. Zoe is nearly panicking because the black venom spreads through Jack's body and she knows nothing of magic or situations like this. Her belief in paranormal activities is null and before that she would have found it grotesque if anybody would dare to expect her to believe in them. Zoe tries to prepare as fast as she can without any help a healing tea, while Jack fights against the poison, his chest stiffens and with his halting forces, he struggles to keep on living.In one fell swoop, Zoe hears how the vital forces of him are vanishing and next she picks up one line of words which break through her mind: "You know what to do!" And she, who thought she had nothing to do with magic and no real magical talent whatsoever, creates a vortex which strikes through the black mass!Yet, the mysery about Jack's recurring and fast health is not the only concern Zoe has... because while Zoe is still puzzled, Jack overflows with desire and the wish to sleep with the beautiful woman who rescued him!And not only he craves for her...Zoe feels pure lust and is fascinated of Jack's firm and pleasant muscles, his hotness and mesmerizing light-brown eyes which seems to have flecks of gold in them...and of course of his magical touch!However Zoe has a dreadful past and can she really trust the enigmatic and good-looking warlock who is still almost a stranger? I hope you liked this review and will read more!The result: An intriguing, spellbinding novel with much love, lust and with many magical adventures and passages! Kind regards, yours truly Butterfly Meine Buchrezension in DeutschHallo, meine lieben Follower und Freunde,Es tut mir Leid, dass ich nicht so oft online hier war. Meinem Vater ging es nicht so gut und ich hatte selber gesundheitliche Probleme. Aber nun werde ich wieder an meinem Blog arbeiten:DEins der wundervollsten Bücher, die ich in letzter Zeit gelesen habe, ist Dark Vortex von Stella Marie Alden.Es ist ein Buch über: MAGIE, ROMANTIK und ein paar PARANORMALE ACTIVITÄTEN ;)Nun werde ich zuerst die Hauptcharaktere vorstellen, bevor ich zur eigentlichen Geschichte komme :Es gibt zwei Gruppen von Hexen: die kriegerischen Zauberer und die Heiler. Die kriegerischen Zauberer und die Heiler formen beide Banden. Diese Banden bestehen aus der eigenen Familie und den Hexern, die in die Gruppe eingeheiratet haben. Krieger und Heiler trauen vor allem der eigenen Gruppe und Familie.Die kriegerischen Zauberer sind Hexenmeister, die gegen andere Gruppen in der Vergangenheit gekämpft haben. Diese Zeiten sind offiziell vorüber. Die jungen Gruppenmitglieder lernen früh, wie man kämpt und alle haben magische Kräfte, die offensiv verwendet werden.Heiler sind Hexen, die die Aura anderer Personen sehen können und für pflanzliche Heilmittel sorgen können. Alle besitzen defensive Kräfte.Jack Fialko: Der sexy und gut aussehende Jack ist in Wahrheit ein mächtiger und starker Zauberer. Er ist eigensinnig und charismatisch und der Anführer einer kriegerischen Hexengruppe, sodass Jack gelernt hat ein wenig rechthaberisch zu sein. Trotz allem hat er aber eine freunliche und charmante Art.Zoe: Zoe ist eine intelligent, witzige Person, die völlig in logische und stimmige Erklärungen und Prozesse glaubt. Sie kann sehr entschlossen sein, wenn nötig und hat eine rebellische Art an sich.Die Hauptgeschichte: Zoe lernt Jack kennen, indem sie auf Jack Acht gibt, während sie beide in den New-Age Laden ihrer Cousine sind. Olivia, ihre Cousine ist eine Heilerin und überzeugt von der Spiritualität. Sie nimmt Zoe "unter ihre Fittiche", nachdem Zoe über das Internet mit ihr Bekanntschaft gemacht hat.Am Anfang, ist Jack dabei sein Bewusstsein zu verlieren, weil er große Schmerzen hat. Sein Shirt ist gerissen und man kann davon ausgehen, das er einen Kampf hinter sich hat. Zoe fühlt sich allein gelassen mit der Aufgabe, sich um ihn zu kümmern.Plötzlich bemerkt Zoe eine Art von schwarzen, lebenden Organismus, der auf der Brust von Jack sitzt und sich von seiner Lebensenergie zu ernähren scheint. Zoe bricht beinahe in Panik aus, weil das schwarze Gift durch Jacks Körper geht und sie nichts von Magie oder solchen paranormalen Situationen versteht. Ihr Glauben in Magie ist gleich Null und hätte man ihr vorher gesagt, das man von ihr verlangen würde daran zu glauben, wäre es nur groteske für sie gewesen.Zoe versucht mit einem heilenden Tee ihm zu helfen, während Jack gegen das Gift ankämpft. Seine Brust spannt sich an und seine Lebenskräfte hören auf, er kämpft mit dem Überleben.In einem Schwung, hört Zoe wie die Lebensenergie aus ihm zu weichen droht und sie nimmt nur eine Wortzeile wahr : "Du weißt, was zu tun ist!" Und sie, die dachte, nichts mit Magie am Hut zu haben oder kein magisches Talent zu besitzen, kreiert einen Wirbelsturm der die schwarze Masse durchbricht!Jedoch ist nicht nur Jacks schnelle Genesung ein Mysterium, sondern... während Zoe noch in Gedanken ist, überquillt Jack ein Gefühl des Verlanges nach dieser schönen Frau, die ihn gerettet hat!Und er ist nicht der Einzige..Zoe fühlt pure Lust in sich aufsteigen und ist von Jacks festen und angenehmen Muskeln, seinem heißen Körper und den hypnotisch himmlischen leicht braunen Augen, die Flecken von Gold aufweisen fasziniert...und natürlich von seinem magical touch!Jedoch hat Zoe eine furchtbare Vergangenheit.Kann sie den geheimnisvollen und attraktiven Hexenmeister widerstehen? Ich hoffe, du mochtest mein Review und willst mehr lesen wollen. Hier ist der Link nach Amazon, wenn du mehr über das Buch erfahren möchtest oder es kaufen willst: Dark Vortex by Stella Marie Alden.Alles in allem: Ein verblüffender, fesselnder Roman mit viel Liebe, Lust und vielen magischen Abenteuern und Passagen!Liebe Grüße,Eure Butterfly

    Zoe had no clue what she was getting into when she went to stay with her cousin Olivia. Although, her cousin claimed to have these magical powers, she didn't believe it, until she met a witch named Jack. Trying to heal Jack, she releases a power, she never believed she had and has to accept the fact, that a secret her parents had taken to the grave, was now revealed. She's a witch.Jack is drawn to Zoe and knows immediately that she is his mate. He tries to tell Zoe, but she's resistant, she barely knows him, but cannot deny the sexual arousal she feels being near him. Will Jack get his way and let Zoe claim her?When I saw that two author were writing a book together, it really captured my interest. I always like to see different writing styles take into play. But I have to say that these two authors wrote the book so well, I couldn't decipher the differences. I loved it.

    Finding love is like finding another side to yourself and for Zoe, that statement couldn’t be more true! Her life went from that of a normal human in search of her blood roots to a lusty, powerful witch who was the fated mate of a powerful witch clan’s leader. Witches? Until Jack, Zoe thought witches were just make believe, but her cravings for this handsome warrior witch are hot enough to melt steel.Jack knew what was happening, their simple touch unleashed the magic of mating, sexually yearning and blossoming love, but how to convince the headstrong Zoe that she has no options and cannot avoid their magical chemistry is one uphill feat! When danger surrounds and threatens both Zoe physically and Jack’s leadership, only a true bonding will allow them to thrive, become more powerful and to survive. But wait! There’s more, Zoe is a rare hybrid, she is the very thing myths and legends are made of and could very well be the most powerful witch of all, could Jack be after the power they will share as mates? All is never fair in love and war, but sometimes the battle is worth the winners' spoils and all they have to do is survive!I should have known I was getting one hot read, after all, this tale was created by an excellent tag team of smoldering pens, Chantel Seabrook and Stella Marie Alden. Dark Vortex is filled from cover to cover with action, tension, heat and more heat. Each character brings their being to life through their great dialogue, believable actions and reactions, including the confusing, explosive emotional pulls! Great plot, great execution and I swear I saw steam rising from my Kindle! Who knew witches could be so magically magnetic?I received an ARC edition from Chantel Seabrook in exchange for my honest review.Series: Mated by Magic - book 1Publication Date: February 29, 2016Publisher: CreateSpaceISBN-10: 1523785071ISBN-13: 978-1523785070Genre: Paranormal RomancePrint Length: 337 pagesAvailable from: AmazonFor Reviews & More: http://tometender.blogspot.com

    This was an exciting one. I read a lot of romance books and the genre is so full of cliches and stock scenes - even in paranormal romance. It's refreshing to read a story that has none of those things, a story that tackles new circumstances and subjects. Jack is the leader of his clan of witches - but he is being threatened. The only way he can defeat his challenger is to mate with an equally powerful witch and obtain her power as well. Mate - not marry. As if pointed out many times, it's about sex, not love. And that's okay with Jack because he doesn't ever want to fall in love again.Enter Zoe, a witch who knows nothing of her own power or the dangerous world she's been thrown into. From the moment he sees her, Jack knows she's the one. Only, she wants more than sex, more than he's willing to give. Add in the danger they face at every turn, and you've got yourself a wild ride. I'll admit, I wasn't a huge fan of Jack. He was a little too alpha for me, but I realize that's what the story called for. There was no way his character could be different. His actions fit him. So it didn't make me like this book any less. Especially because Zoe was such a strong character. Many times, we see women in these books look week when going up against a strong man. Not so here. Zoe doesn't give in to him, even when she probably should. She has a tragic past that only makes her stronger and she knows what she wants and doesn't want. She's easy to root for. Basically, if you have even an iota of affection for paranormal romance stories, you want to give this one a chance.

    I have no idea how co-authors do it. But I've read two co-authored books in the span of a week. And they both read seamlessly. Dark Vortex is a solid read for the paranormal romance fan. I liked the elemental concept of witch and warlock powers, as well as how the authors used said powers to create heated love scenes. I didn't really understand the need for mates to fight prior to consummation, although I did appreciate the acknowledgment of the danger of wielding great magical power carelessly and inexpertly. There are many characters in this book, some of whom I would've liked to know more about. Zoe, the heroine, had a lot to deal with and her issues and concerns made a lot of sense. Jack's issues, on the other hand, weren't as evenly addressed or as understandable as Zoe's. Thus, I wish the book was a tad longer. There were some scenes that ended too quickly and would've been better if developed more. Overall, the novel is well-written with nice scenes of magic and several scenes of intimacy that I always appreciate in a romance novel.

    Magic, Love and Lust!I LOVED this book!! I was so excited to read it that when I received an ARC I jumped right in and stayed up way past my bedtime to finish it. My eyes were burning, the clock mocked me with each tick, telling me I was going to be exhausted tomorrow if I didn't shut off my kindle and go to sleep, but I COULDN'T do it! I had to have more and when I finally reached the last page I still wanted more. I didn't want it to be over, that's how much I loved this book. For the survival of his clan, Jack Fialko needs to mate with a witch of equal power before the end of the solstice. Problem is, the woman he thinks is his mate has no clue who he is and has no desire to actually believe in the notion of witches and magic. That stuff isn't real, is it? Zoe doesn't know the power she holds, in fact, the whole idea of witches, warlocks and magic seems more fairytaleish than real to her. Until, the night she's forced to save a warriors life or watch him die before her eyes. Things start to happen that she can't quite explain and by the grace of the Goddess (if she believed in such things) she managed to heal and not kill the sexy as sin man laying before her. But when he touches her for the first time, lust slams into her in a way that has her saying and doing things she normally wouldn't.Jack not only has to convince Zoe that she's a witch packing some serious power, but that she's also his mate. A mate he wants to claim and claim now. His clan is on the verge of war, his mate has issues of her own that cause trouble out the yin-yang, and to top it off, she can be a major pain in his ass when she's not driving him into lust overdrive.I loved the spark between these two characters and the story kept me hooked from beginning to end. I want more! Not sure if the authors are considering make this into a series, but if they did I would be one happy reader. Thank you Chantel Seabrook and Stella Marie Alden for the chance to read this wonderful story! *I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review*

    With a combination of witches, magic, and soul mates, “Dark Vortex” offers a lot of lore, background and world building, but it also manages to focus on the plot and characters.Read full review in the 2016 October issue of InD'tale Magazine.

    Really enjoyed this book. Very fast paced and full of adventure!Jack and Zoe are very different ...he's a warrior who knows all about magic and she's been raised as a human who thinks magic is just stories. They come together in a fiery storm of emotions and danger and boy was I ever happy to be taken along for the ride!

    I really enjoyed this most interesting and sexy novel of witches and warlocks. Two people, a witch who knows not of her power and ability, and a warlock meet. He is convinced instantly that she is his mate for life and tries to persuade her to submit to his desires right away. It happens but not before she learns of her life status as a warring and healing witch. There follows a series of events in which their relationship is tested and tried to the maximum before a very interesting ending that leaves me wondering if another tale of Jack Fialko and Zoe Burton is not in the offing. Some observations: love is difficult to find and more difficult to maintain. Independence is a necessity for American people but it comes with a price in its ultimate form. The price of ultimate independence is loneliness. Possession, by both man and woman is part of loving, but can be a destructive notion. The author posits that MAN always wants to own his mate body and soul. It is probably true. But the effect of a woman being owned by a man is to establish ownership in the woman as well. These are some of the lessons of this book. And they are established in adult situations that make me emphasize this is not a book for young teens or children. Given that caveat it is a book that all who read it will undoubtedly enjoy. I certainly did and thus it easily merits my five star review. Loved it.

    Witches warlocks and other magical things can seem so unrealistic to someone who was brought up to not believe. That is the problem Zoe a beautiful and amazing woman has to learn to accept. Jack is a powerful warrior with strong power and is out looking for his fated mate. And he has to do it fast time is running out he has to be mated by or before the end of the solstice in order to save his clan. He found her and sparks fly but things aren't that easy first she is quick tempered with a smart mouth and most importantly she doesn't believe in magic. But the jokes on her for she might not but inside herself she is a very powerful witch. Now he has to make her believe it and it them. Will he succeed? Will he save his clan? Zoe is a sexy self sufficient woman. She doesn't believe in the unseen or magical. One night she is made to save a life or watch him die before her eyes.. That's when things get weird and hot because as soon as he touches her she can't explain the forceable attraction to this man.. Now he is telling her crazy things including that she is meant to be his, what is she to do or believe. Something inside her says he tells the truth but her mind refuses to accept. Will she listen and do what is right? And the process find herself? Read and find out.. I was given this magical story in exchange for an honest review..

    See Spot. He is a dog. Run, Spot, run!While I didn't expect perfection, I did hope that the writing would improve and become more fluid. It didn't. I stopped reading after the first few pages, since I kept reading a lot of 'she did this' or 'they did that'...it was just too flat.An excerpt from the PNR Lovers site: Power coiled through him. Roughly, he hauled her to the bed. Her back met the mattress and he positioned himself above her. He spread her thighs wider with his knees. She curled her hands over his broad shoulders, feeling the muscles clench and tighten under her palms.The fact that it took two people to write this is disappointing; one would think that one of the two would have focused on the editing, i.e. sentence structures, flow, etc. Sometimes, two isn't better than one.

    Jack and Zoe are wonderfully opposite characters, even for the paranormal genre this was written to satisfy. Jack is fully versed in the world of magic and the rules of that govern, while Zoe raised as a human is not aware of her own power and the forces outside her known existence. The mating process Jack is seeking to undertake with no additional ties to gain the power he requires, bring Zoe and him into each others worlds in a hot and passionate fashion. The well-written tug of war between the rules Jack accepts without emotional ties, and Zoe's search for more leaps off the page in dramatic fashion. Awesome writing made me never hesitate in turning the next page, I couldn't put this book down for a second. Two big thumbs up and highest recommendation for romance and paranormal readers alike.

    I read a lot, usually at least one carefully screened book a day. In spite of that, it's not often I find one by a new author that is as good as this writing duo. It is not the typical cookie cutter formula, the storyline flows beautifully, flashbacks are mercifully short, the plot and characters are well developed, it is a standalone with an HEA and, while not perfect, it kept me glued to my reader and wanting much more. I have an affinity for stories featuring characters with elemental powers and this book has a different twist on elemental magic, mixed in with witches and warlocks. I loved it and can't wait to read more by these talented authors. When Jack Fialco, head of the Iesco clan of "warring" witches, is brought into the healer's cottage, he is near death. In the absence of the healer, her cousin, adopted human Zoe Burton, breaks through a binding curse to heal him. Zoe has no idea she is a hybrid witch. She is untrained, powerful and therefore dangerous. But when Jack regains consciousness, he finds an unconscious woman who unleashed a vortex to heal him. She doesn't read as a healer, however, and when she awakens he finds she has no knowledge of her natural family or of her powers. Jack is wary, but he is also getting another very important reading from her. Zoe is his solstice mate, a perfect match for him, and therefore a mating between them would double their powers. But without training, in an attempted mating, Zoe's uncontrolled power could kill them both. This is a KU Library read.

    I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. In this we meet Zoe and Jack Fialko. Zoe is a woman without a past. She was adopted as a child after her step-father was found to be touching her inappropriately. She has flashbacks and problems that have sent her to a therapist to help her deal with her issues. She found in her adoptive parents home after they died a letter from her birth mother that helped her start to find her family. The things is there are parts of herself that she knows nothing about so when she meets Jack he awakens something in her. Can she trust Jack and what he is awakening within her or will he just be one more person to hurt her?Jack didn't think he would ever meet his mate but the instant Zoe touches him he knows there is something special bout her. The thing is how does he get his mate without scaring her off. It seems the more he tries to get her the more she pulls away. The thing is now that he has found her he can't let anything happen to her and the people after don't feel the same way. Can he protect his mate as well as get her to accept all of him?This book will have you on the edge of your seat from the first word to the very end. There are many twists and turns in this book that I want to tell you all about but I don't want to ruin any of the surprises for any of the readers. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

    Zoe has no idea who or what she is when she cures the big beautiful hunk of a warring witch and head of his clan Jack but she will soon find out. Jack has no idea who Zoe is but when he sees her power all he knows is he has to have her. As it turns out Jack isn't the only one. This all happens in the three chapters. Lots of excitement and sexual tension especially when Jack realizes Zoe knows nothing about who she is and the rules of any kind. Zoe is a pistol and Jack is stubborn the combination is definitely combustible. This is a collaboration between 2 writers and while there are some rough spots still it is an enjoyable read. The POV switches back and forth between Zoe and Jack sometimes going to the past to explain the present. Strong characters, intrigue, action, fun, laughter, passion and "fighting" during the mating make for an interesting story not to mention Zoe finding out who she is. While Zoes issues are explored Jacks are kind of glossed over as the book goes along but worth every page turn

    TITLE: Dark VortxSERIES: Mated by MagicAUTHOR: Stella Marie Alden & Chantel SeabrookGENRE: Paranormal RomanceRELEASE DATE: February 29, 2016MY RATING: 5 starsWow! I am not a huge fan of paranormal, I have to be in a certain mood, but man did I love this book! The book starts off right in the middle of things and is very fast paced, and it builds up till you get the whole picture, and there were many times I was like "OH!!! That's why-"The sex scenes were HOT HOT HOT! I loved the sexual energy.Zoe, our heroine, I loved her! She was a strong female lead- and we all know by this time that I have issues with the 3 W's (weak, wishy washy females) And Jack, he has definitely made it to my book boyfriend list! This was a totally solid read and I will be diving into book 2 this evening :)

    Promising, poorly executedThe premise of the book is intriguing and engrossing. But the storytelling is clunky and barren - missing details, jumping around, and confusing at times. The second half of the book has far more character development than the first half, leaving the story feeling uneven. Necessary descriptors are missing - I don't know what any of the characters look like and the settings are described minimally. The narrative reads like an outline that needs to be fleshed out, which is disappointing. It has a very entertaining and engaging plot with characters worthy of investing time and interest into. But instead of being robust and well-rounded, it falls short. With more attention, the authors could make something amazing out of this.I appreciate getting to read this book for free, and I enjoyed it, for the most part. But it lacks the value I would expect from something I actually paid money for - my concern is that the authors' other books would be similar or worse, leading me to not be inclined to purchase any further books from them.

    Loved it!This was a well written paranormal romance between a male warrior witch name Jack Fialko and a warrior-healer hybrid name Zoe who was adopted by humans and had no idea of her lineage. Sparks fly when they meet one solstice night when Jack is hurt and Zoe somehow heals him with powers she had no idea she had. He soon realizes her powers are strong and must mate with her in order to save his clan.Zoe can't deny the chemistry between Jack and her but she is untrained in magic.She must be learn to control her magic before the solstice is over in order to help Jack and save herself from other warriors who want to kidnap her for her powers.I enjoyed this book.The chemistry between Jack and Zoe was steamy.I just wish it was a little longer.I give it 5 stars.

    This was a very interesting twist on finding mates. Only during the solstice do the witches (males and females) search for the mate that will match them in magical strength. Unfortunately for Zoe she didn't even know what she was or even about witches. So when she does meet her mate she has no idea what the attraction is she has for him or the specific mating rituals. With a dark past and no luck with love as well, how can she trust this odd mating?Romance, magic and danger are abound is the book. Going to start reading the next book right away. Received book from author for an honest review.

    I hate giving bad reviews, but with all the five stars this book received, I felt that it needed to be said.For me, Dark Vortex had too much going on without a lot of explanation. If I had more details, I would have probably enjoyed it more. The premise was interesting. Moreover, there would be a BAM moment and something big happened, and then it was rushing to the next scene without letting you really process what you just read. It was too rushed. At 60%, I was rolling my eyes, just waiting for it to be over. Almost didn't finish.

    I am a big fan of Chantel Seabrook and was not disappointed AT ALL while reading this collaboration with Stella Marie Alden. The originality of this story is one of the biggest draws for me. Vortex? Who has heard of that before? I still want to know more about them. And the steamy scenes - a definite plus.Love the power play.Love the pace.Love the effort these two Authors have put into building this world for us.

    2.5 StarsOk so unfortunately I think I'm in the minority with this book because I thought it was a bit cheesy and eye rolling.There was a hell of a lot thrown into this story and at times was OTT. Things that were happening were resolved far too quickly and boom it was onto the next big thing. I loved the blurb and it held so much promise it just didn't quite get there for me.

    This book was amazing! I didn't realize I was ready to read a paranormal romance book, but I had a hard time putting this down. The story line was very well written and kept me wondering what was going to happen next. The characters were deep and real and completely believable. The story is a stand alone, but I can see it as a series, telling each of the clan member's stories of true love.I highly recommend this to anyone who likes to read paranormal romance.

    OMG!!! I loved this book. It has it all action, romance, angst, and steam. I can't wait to dive into more adventures with these authors.

    Breakneck, a little disjointed, less than brilliant heroineThe book starts out well with action and a bit of confusion. Then the heroine and hero proceed to deny, deny, deny, which leads to misunderstandings because they jump to conclusions without taking five minutes for candid communication. Contrived misunderstandings and refusal to listen to what people try to tell her send the heroine into one hair-brained escapade after another until she finally gets a clue. The hero makes mistakes, realizes it, and apologises only to ruin it by shooting off his mouth again. These characters take stubbornness to terminal levels. On the good side, the editing is clean.
