Holding Out for a Hero
by Deirdre Savoy
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
10 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Hold On - True Love Is Coming!, June 29 2004
Deirdre Savoy has definitely done it again!! "Holding Out for a Hero" is Samantha Hathaway's story. Samantha is the friend of Ariel from Ms. Savoy's book "Spellbound." Sam is attractive and an accomplished movie star. She has had love in her life, but nothing to compare with the sexy, charming Adam Wexler, who is surely Sam's hero.
Drastic events have taken place in Sam's life, including the death of a close friend, who was also Sam's ex-fiance'. Ironically, Billy Prescott, was not only Sam's ex-fiance', but unknowingly to Sam, Billy was also Adam's half-brother. It was after Billy's death that Sam and Adam come together and their lives are never the same. Sparks fly, but they are not at first from flames of love. However, the flames are not allowed to smother and they burst into red hot fire. Sam and Adam realize that indeed their attraction is from their love for each other. Adam has made a decision to do all he can to protect Sam, even if it is with his life. In every sense, Adam is a hero, not only because he is a detective and has been in positions in the past where he had to be a hero, but because he has come to be Sam's special hero and love of her life. Adam is what Samantha has been waiting for and holding out for in her life -- her one true love and hero.
Very good book. Thanks again, Ms. Savoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Little Dare Uncovered, Jan. 12 2004
Ce commentaire est de: A Little Dare (Mass Market Paperback)
Brenda Jackson has done it again. This time with the Westmoreland family. The Westmoreland men -- Dare, Thorn, Stone, Storm and Chase -- are they heading on the same level as the Madaris men?
"A Little Dare" is Sheriff Dare Westmoreland's and Shelly Brockman's story. Almost 11 years have passed since Dare and Shelly have been together. Shelly leaves town because of her love for Dare and she did not want to infringe on his goals and desires for his life. Shelly decides to return to her hometown for personal reasons and also tries to keep her "bundle" a secret. However, looks and time will tell. Also, the Westmoreland family is a fierce and protective family and accepts what is theirs.
By luck, Sheriff Dare comes face to face with what Shelly has been hiding all these years. Not only does Sheriff Dare, but the entire Westmoreland clan along with the town folk realize that Shelly originally left town because of "a little Dare."
Shelly and Dare come together and realize that the love they shared years ago is still alive. Is it enough for them to survive and start their lives over? Can they dare not to act on them. Not only are their lives involved, but also the life of their son - Little Dare - who at this time in his life is faced with challenges of his own.
"A Little Dare" is a good book. Ms. Jackson has definitely done it again. The Dare brothers are fierce, good looking men and are to be reckoned with. However, their sister, Delaney, is just as fierce and has a mind of her own, as well as her own story in "Delaney's Desert Sheikh."
I eagerly await the other Westmoreland's men stories. I hope there is a story for Storm, Chase, and Stone. I also enjoyed "Thorn's Challenge."

Happily Ever After
by Rochelle Alers
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
13 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Patiently Waiting, Jan. 12 2004
"Happily Ever After" is truly a wonderful love story. The title says it all. Lauren Taylor and Caleb B. Samuels II met and had a brief marriage that lasted all of one week. This sounds like a fantasy romance and it was good while it lasted. However, when they returned to the states, Lauren had second thoughts and was faced with reality. After meeting Caleb's grandfather, the stern Dr. Caleb B. Samuels, Lauren was unsure if marriage to Cal was what she wanted. Cal knew what he wanted, but he loved Lauren too much to force her to remain if she did not want to. Five years passed and things happened and developed. Lauren finds herself a single parent by her own choice. However, by fate, Cal reenters Lauren's life and discovers there is more to be gained and that Lauren has been keeping a secret from him for the past five years. It is only after the death of Dr. Samuels that the secret is discovered. Can secrets and love be transported from the grave?
Lauren realizes she has been selfish the past five years, but to her she never really faced it until it has literally been pushed into her face by someone she thought was her enemy -- Dr. Samuels. Now Lauren must face the ghost of the past - Cal. Can Lauren keep her love safely hidden in her heart and written daily in her journals or will love burst through?
After coming face to face with Lauren again after so many years, Cal wants to pursue the love of his life. However, ever practical Lauren is skeptical and wonders was that week on Cay Verde enough and was it a love that could endure and make their lives "happily ever after?"

This Time Forever
This Time Forever
by Janice Sims
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
17 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars A Love Worth Waiting For, Aug. 21 2003
"This Time Forever" is about eternal love. A love that lasts a lifetime. Kerry Everett's life has been incomplete without the true love of her life -- Maceo Kent. However, Kerry has not been alone. Mac's life has been void also. They both have dated other people, but there was still that emptiness that could not and would not be filled until their hearts unite as one.
Kerry is truly one of the Everett women, who when they love -- they love. They listen to what their heart tells them and hold out for their man. Although, Kerry is a fiesty, tough woman, who has been a cop and is now Chief of Police, she is still a woman who has been waiting for her true love to return. When the town of Damascus is stunned by a murder that resembles a serial killing, the FBI is called in and who shows up? No one but Mac, who has no problem rekindling the fire that has slowly been simmering. It does not take much to relight and make a flame. The embers may have been lukewarm and on the back burner, but when Mac and Kerry come together again, the flicker definitely flames and are red hot.
"This Time Forever" also reunites the reader with Kianna Everett and her husband Gabriel Merrick, who the readers met in "The Keys to My Heart" . Kianna is Kerry's sister. Readers will also enjoy Kianna's and Gabriel's story.
Ms. Sims has another winner. "This Time Forever" is a wonderful, romantic, and suspenseful book. It's about family, love, and commitment. It is a book the reader will truly like. I surely did!

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Wonderful Gift to Receive - True Love, Jan. 25 2003
"A Christmas Wish" is a great book! I enjoyed it. Young Kimberly Franklin was a determined female and set out on getting the best Christmas present she could think of for her uncle, Pierce. That gift was in the shape and form of Patricia Burke. Although Patricia and Pierce were not on to what Kimberly was conniving, they were mutually attracted to one another. So one young girl's wish turned out to be the best present for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Price of Passion -- What is it worth?, Jan. 1 2003
Ce commentaire est de: The Price of Passion (Paperback)
Ms. Palfrey has written a wonderful, suspenseful book. The Price of Passion is the story of Vivian Carlson, who has been in a loveless marriage for approximately 20 years. Walter Carlson, is Vivian's unfaithful, politically hungry husband. Vivian's husband gives Vivian a package, another's woman's baby, who has eyes just like Walter's. The baby worms her way into Vivian's life and into her heart.
Everyone knows that Vivian is too good for Walter. Vivian's mother and sister; Walter's cousin, Sherman; Walter's best friend, Bobby Africa; Vivian's friends, Cora and Marc - all are aware. However, what would Vivian do for "The Price of Passion?" Would Vivian surrender the love of the babe, she so desparately wants to keep? Would she give up the friendship of Marc Kline, the journalist and professor? Would she give up fulfilling her dreams of becoming a lawyer, a career she postponed years ago to help Walter further his career? Would Vivian give up her opportunity to be a mother? Would you? What is worth "The Price of Passion?"
Again, Ms. Palfrey has written a wonderful book. I kept turning the pages to uncover the truth and discover just what Vivian would do. The book has some surprising events. It is definitely a page turner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!!, Oct. 6 2002
Ms. Ray is to be commended on another great read! "I Know Who Holds Tomorrow" is a down to earth book. So true, so many women are involved in marriages where there is little or no love, mistrust, or even unfaithfulness. Madison Reed happened to be one of those women. Although no fault of Madison, her marriage to Wes took a turn for the worse after Madison loss their unborn child. However, in all fairness to Wes, if they had learned to communicate and express what they were feeling, then perhaps the drift that came into their marriage could have been mended. Madison was suffering, but so was Wes, even though he was taught from being around his parents, not to show true affections or compassion. How sad!! During their time of sorrow, Madison and Wes should have been able to touch and comfort one another.
Madison was blessed with having a loving family and true and dear friends at the time she needed them most. After having coming to terms with, but never fully recovering from the loss of her child, Madison is again dealt another blow in life. One day she leaves for work and her whole world changes. She is told of Wes' accident and later before he dies,Wes tells her that he has fathered a child by another woman. Madison and the child's life is interwined when Zachary, someone who is much closer to Wes than a friend, brings the baby home to Madison after Madison had agreed to care for before she realized it was Wes' child.
Madison is a loving, caring, and giving person, but doubts whether she can truly accept and care for Wes' child. However, it is already too late because Madison has held the child in her arms and held her to her breast. Madison has felt life in the body of an innocent child. A child whose tomorrows are just beginning. Is Madison the woman that will hold baby Manda's tomorrows. If so, when will Madison discover who holds her tomorrows. Will Madison make that discovery before it is too late or will she just let her tomorrows fade away into the future?
Zachary Holman, handsome, kindhearted, gentle, hard working and loving is not only devoted to little Manda, but Zachary has come to love Madison. Zachary's bond is tied to both Manda and Madison. Zachary is always there when they need him. For both Manda and Madison, Zachary is more than willing to be the one to hold their tomorrows. He has committed the rest of his life to them.
"I Know Who Hold Tomorrows" is a great book that deals with love, trust and commitment. Hats off again to Ms. Ray.
