Riva/Harlequin Presents Extra author Heidi Rice explains why the film they've dubbed the Greatest Flop Ever Made actually has a lot to recommend it - and we're not just talking about Taylor Kitsch's biceps here, folks.
And whenever following all those weird Martian names gets a bit too much, or the effects get a bit exhausting, it has some really heartfelt drama to fall back on. Especially in that pivotal moment when Carter is thrown back in time and space to the Old West against his will...
So OK, maybe it is the biggest flop ever made, but I still enjoyed it. And I would definitely recommend it as all-round family entertainment.
Heidi's latest book The Good, the Bad and the Wild is out now as a Riva in the UK and will be out in the US in July. The sister story Cupcakes and Killer Heels is also out in the US as a Harlequin Presents Extra.
