Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Readers put off by the raunchy sexual appetites and morals of some contemporary romance protagonists will enjoy this story of a lonely young widow who slowly gets under the skin of a misogynist mercenary until he discovers that love is the best thing that ever happened to him. More feminist readers, however, may find Macomber's hero, Cain Maclellan, rather irksome, as he appears to value lovely Linette Collins chiefly for her "softness" and gentleness. Cain's job involves rescuing various victims of Third World terrorists; and Linette, who lost her first husband to cancer, worries about her growing attraction to Cain because of his dangerous career. She does not, however, appear unduly troubled by the fact that he himself often kills others in order to achieve his objectives. Macomber (The Trouble with Angels) here throws together the traditional "family values" of Linette and her family and the rugged machismo of Cain and his co-workers into what ultimately seems like an uneasy mix, but her portrayal of a relationship that develops slowly and steadily despite a host of obstacles nevertheless can be convincing.

A refreshing story about a man loving a woman enough to change his life. Living dangerously had been his life until he meet Linette. Now he had a different reason to live.

Action, love, and danger April 12 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Debbie Macomber's SOMEDAY SOON, which is the prequel to SOONER OR LATER is a wonderful contemporary about a young widow, Linette Collins, who becomes involved with the head of a mercenary group, Cain McClellan. She's reluctant to love and lose again, and Cain, well he's never even CONSIDERED having a "permanent" woman. But, his days of reckless abandon are numbered when he falls in love with Linette--much to the chagrin of his mercenary buddies--and almost loses her to international terorists. buddies.

Pleasant .... Sept. 7 2008
By Holly - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have enjoyed most of the Debbie Macomber books I have read and this was no exception. I was in the mood for something fluffy and light since the next book in my reading stack deals with a true life account of drug and alcohol addiction .... I defintely wanted something uplifting before tackling that ! I was very please with my selection.

Ms. Macomber's books are always a quick read and I read the first 200 pages in one sitting and finished it the next day. One of the things I like best about her books is that you end up feeling better about the world when you are finished and that was true with this one as well. I won't bore you with the story line since it is available in the product description, but I will share that the settings of San Fransisco and Montana provide a nice back-drop and allow the characters to change locations which moves the story along well. I also enjoyed the fact that one of the female characters is described as tall, large-boned, not particularly attractive and has a very strong personality and yet is written about very positively. She is the archtype to the small, delicate love interest yet is one of the people who finds love and happiness ...... what a pleasant deviation from most stories. She ended up being my favorite character!

If you enjoy Debbie Macomber books, I think you will like this one. It's perfect reading when you don't want to have to think too hard or you are in the mood to feel uplifted.

Sweet G-rated romance novel Dec 1 2008
By cb - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Some novels are so good you never notice the lack of love scenes but this one made you wonder if the main characters were from a hollywood 1950's world. The story was about 2 couples, the men were both soldiers for hire,the one women owned a knit store & was widow for 2 years and another a 30+ virgin physical therapist. This novel had merit the love stories had potential but in the end I did skim. I got this as a gift for birthday and it was safe gift (nothing it offended me).

So here is my advice if you are looking for safe G-rated book to read or give as a gift - give it a try.

Heartwarming & gentle romance Jan. 26 2011
By teacher mom - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I love historical romance, but I'm not a fan of explicit sex scenes. I usually don't care for contemporary novels, but I've been wanting to read something by Debbie Macomber for a while and chose this book as my first. I'm very pleased with it and am now eager to read the rest of the Deliverance series.

Linette Collins is a young widow with a lot of problems. Her husband of 2 years has been dead for 2 years and yet she can't bring herself to move on. To complicate matters, his parents are very much a part of her life, pushing her to dedicate her life to his memory. She works too hard and socializes too little, and when her sister in law invites her to a Christmas party, she accepts only out of obligation. Little does she know this is a turning point in her life, because Cain McClellan happens to be at the same party.

Cain is a mercenary, a hired soldier who engages in risky operations when the U.S. government cannot intervene. He risks his life without a second thought and prefers a life without family or complications. His attraction to Linette at his high school friend's Christmas party throws a kinkk in his plans, not that he's complaining.

This is a romance novel. The characters fall in love, and there is a "happily ever after" ending, as we expect. However, don't think there aren't any surprises. On the contrary, toward the end of the book is a very big unexpected event. Although the main conflicts are resolved, there's a mixture of romance, tragedy, action, and forgiveness to keep it balanced. The romantic dialogue seemed a bit trite at times, but there were enough sigh-worthy moments for me to overlook a bit of awkward dialogue. There are other characters with major story lines of their own as well. I loved the story of Tim and Francine. There were some truly hilarious moments with these two!

This book is what I'd call a PG romance. Sex is mentioned, as is quite a bit of innuendo, but there aren't any true sex scenes. (No worries about "bulging members" or "heaving bosoms.") Also, the characters only engage in sex after they are married. There have been a few reviews discussing the morality of the characters. I did not find it to be preachy in the least, but thought it only heightened the romance. This is a love story; not a lust story. Also, Cain is a strong male hero, while Linette is soft, small and feminine. Again, this is not a drawback to me. I didn't think it reflected 1950's ideals, but it is definitely more conservative than many books in the romance genre.

This is an entertaining, beautiful romantic novel. Linette is afraid of losing love again, and Cain is afraid of giving up even a small bit of control over his life. How these two characters from completely different worlds manage to come together makes for a very interesting story. I was interested in the descriptions of the operations from the Deliverance Company as well, and thought it was a very well-balanced novel. It's very enjoyable, and I can't wait to read more.

I'm sorry I just didn't like it. Nov. 7 2013
By jamie pate - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I like'd it all the way until the end. I'm sorry but when you lose a child you don't just get over because you take care of a calf. And I think she should have at least got pregnant again, before the book ended. it didn't even have a happy ending. her husband left with her knowing she didn't want him to go. And it ends with her losing her child because he left, and him saying he's sorry that it was his fault. And asking her to forgive him.Lets see a women loses her child and the man blames himself for it. that doesn't sound like a good ending to me. Whats is that? I'm sorry but she could have ended it a lot better. It ruined the whole book for me. I threw it in my terrible book Pyle.
