Game designer Sadie Delacourt has moved to the peaceful, bucolic town of Damson Valley for a fresh start where she can keep an eye on a recently divorced sister and her small nephew. Sadie plans to focus on her business and her family, until handsome neighbor Gideon Granville turns his focus on Sadie. When Sadie learns where Gideon has been aiming his snooping skills, she’s ready to delete him from her plans entirely—though Gideon is all that stands between her and the trouble she thought she’d left behind her.
This little gem is free, or at least it was at the time I reviewed it. This is another prequel to Ms. Burrowes newest series, a contemporary grouping called Sweetest Kisses. While the main novels are about the Knightley brothers, the first two novellas are about supporting characters. A taste, if you will, of the goodies to come!
I have loved the historical novels by this author. Some say I'm her number one fangirl. That could certainly be true!
In this story, Sadie is working hard to protect her sister and her nephew. They've had a very hard couple years and this is a new start for everyone. Gideon has moved into the apartment complex while his elderly farmhouse is getting a face-lift. Living with him is his very LARGE dog, Baby. Gideon is an investigator and he's looking for the young son of a client. We know where the lines are going to cross long before our characters do, and it kept me on tenterhooks. One of the best parts of this author's "tricks" is that she has her characters ACT LIKE ADULTS. They don't keep secrets, they work together...family is everything. I do love that. While she uses this "trope" in every book she writes, whether it is this new contemporary series, or her many historicals, this never gets old with me.
There is a love scene in this book that was truly one of the most beautiful ones I've ever read. And there are no "f" words...or that horrible "c" word either. It's hotter than heck, and beautifully erotic, with no "bad" words. Whew...almost melted my iPad.
While we can worry if things will work out, we also know they will. One of the reasons why I read this author. Her foray into contemporary romance is a brilliant one. And the teaser she shares of the third book in the series, Kiss Me Hello, has me panting to get my hands on it. Mack is an attorney AND a farrier. Can't get any better than that!
I'm reviewing the first novel in the series, A Single Kiss, tomorrow. Please come by and check it out!
