Undercover, Chase can’t tell Grace the truth. Never one to back down, he accepts the challenge ahead of him, win Grace and save her father’s company.
This book can be read as a standalone.
The premise for this story is reasonable one, and that’s what piqued my attention. Sadly, I feel that it is let down by its execution.
The story didn’t seem to flow very well to me – there were parts which just jumped to the next conclusion without any real link up. It felt almost as though the author had parts of the story in her head, which she didn’t quite commit to the page.
Added to that, I simply didn’t believe the connection between the protagonists. It was a little sterile in the telling, given the apparent strength of the attraction between them.
Overall, I’m afraid that this was a bit of a disappointment.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
After a career in teaching, Nancy began writing young adult books. The Waiting for Dusk series includes a historical fiction prequel, Broken Dreams. The fantasy romance series has three books-Waiting for Dusk, Call of the Canyon and Stealing Time. The Swedish influences in the series come from her mother whose parents emigrated from Sweden.
Her new series-Twenty Nine-has slowly developed over time. Last Leap Year, an idea came to her and she created the characters and story based on that special day, February 29.
She has now branched out into historical romance with her Clan MacLaren series.
Born and raised in Northeast Ohio, Nancy currently resides in Mentor, Ohio with her husband, son, and a delightfully entertaining lovebird.
