Susanna Moore thought she'd found the man of her dreams. That is until she caught him in bed with her sister.
Rancher Noah Weber vowed to never involve his heart again when it came to women. However after a chance encounter with Susanna, dormant desires are reignited leading to full blown passion.
Does time really heal all wounds? Can lust lead to love? Will these two lovers find their happily ever after?
Take two powerful emotions and mix them together and what do you get? An enticing opening to this seventy page short story.
Ms. Wells dumps a deep-seated hatred for her scheming sister and a sense of betrayal by her former boyfriend on her buckling heroine. You would be forgiven for thinking of her heroine as "buckling" ... it seems she lacked spine and did not deserve to find true love. After all why didn’t she ‘fight for her man’?
Skilfully, Ms. Wells takes the reader through a believable time frame and a black moment before Susanna Moore begins to fight for her own emotional survival. And part of her defence is her promise never to fall in love again. That is… until she meets Noah Weber. And what a meeting!
Ms. Wells' hero is the stuff dreams are made of. He, too has his fair share of baggage to dispose of and it is how the two main characters deal with their past and accept the lessons from it that turns this story into a delightful read. The sex between them is integral to the plot and to the main characters’ learning curves, and is beautifully woven into the story.
This may not be a long story, but it is a delightful read you can pick up time and time again, especially on a cold, wet, windy grey day, when you’re snuggled in front of a cozy fire.
