Two Great Beginings
In Too Deep:
This is the first book in the Due South Series by Tracey Alvarez. It is the second series I've read by this author and I am hooked. Her characters are realistic and are fast becoming old friends. The dynamics and dialogue between the characters really show their complexity and love for each other. The tension is thick. If Piper and West aren't at each others throats, they're fighting their mutual attraction. Will they wise up and grab a hold of what's in front of them or let their insecurities ruin their second chance at happiness?
Hide Your Heart:
This heartwarming story of Lauren and Nate is endearing and the wonderful beginnings of the Far North Series. Can Lauren trust her heart and safety to a man embroiled in scandal? Will Nate learn the meaning of home and family. The book made me laugh. It made me cry. It made me want to read more.
Romance Down Under
Romantic, sweet, funny, charming & sad are all wrapped up in both of these stories from start to finish. I really enjoyed both of these books.
