Fall in love with seven sexy and irresistible soldiers who find their courage and heart tested like never before in the battle for love! This multi-author collaborative series of contemporary romance novels is brought to you by bestselling authors Barbara Freethy, Roxanne St. Claire, Christie Ridgway, Lynn Raye Harris, Julia London, Cristin Harber and Samantha Chase. You won’t want to miss a single one!
Ex-soldier Zane Tucker is perfectly happy with his single life and his adventure watersports business. A gambler by nature, he figures the odds of finding a woman for forever are a lot longer than finding a woman for right now. And as a man of action and not emotion, he believes a woman with lasting romance on the mind would want someone with less hard muscle and more soft sentiment. But then his dog hurtles toward the new county librarian, yanking Zane into her delicate, pretty presence. Will they both scare her away? And why does that worry him so?
Harper Grace has a bucket list of goals to tick off and is determined to live every moment to the fullest by overcoming her usual shyness. No one will call her too timid and too boring ever again. But then a giant of a man and his equally large dog charge into her life and she can’t decide if she wants to take a step back…or step fully into Zane’s strong arms. She’s been brave enough to change her life, but does she have enough courage to risk her heart?
SASCHA DARLINGTON’S REVIEW
The authors have obviously worked together well because Zane follows seamlessly after Adam, carrying on some of the situations that have been occurring.
I liked the characters of Zane, who’s described as a big bull in a china shop kind of guy with an equally graceful dog, and petite Harper, who is trying to start her life fresh after her ex-fiance called her “boring.” She’s decided to be NOT boring.
The story and the characters are cute. If you’re looking for something light and quick, this would do the job. While the novel could have done with some depth, but if you’re reading through the soldiers’ stories, you probably will enjoy this one.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
