Nice beach reading material
Finding Home, by Linda Howard, Elizabeth Lowell, and Kasey Michaels.
This is one of my well worn dog eared keepers, that I find myself pulling out time after time.
The first of the three novels that this book contains is Duncan's Bride. It's about a Chic and loving woman, who has family and friends in the city, but she's lonely, and searching for something better. It's also about a bitter rancher who lost half his ranch to the Chic wife who divorced him. The two meet through an add, and Madelyn, who falls in love at first sight, marries a man who is sure he will never trust a sophisticated city woman again. The sparks fly, the war to win his heart is on, and the fun begins.
The second story is Chain lightning by Elizabeth Lowell. Mandy has a smart mouth. She is funny, and competent, but she has been through enormous tragedy. Sutter is her bosses nephew. He has a very low opinion of women, and only wants them for one thing. Anthea throws them both together on a holiday on a small Australian island, not knowing that Mandy is scared to death, of both small planes and water. Sutter is amazed at the way Mandy is tackling her fears head on, and the close quarters they are sharing bring them too close to a growing passion for each other that they would rather ignore. It's the one liners between these two characters, and the steamy love scenes that really make this story one of my favorites. It's smart and funny and sexy.
The third story is Popcorn and Kisses. It's a sweet, and funny romance that revolves around one of the last drive-in theatres in America.
When I know I want a good read, and I am not sure I want to try a new unknown book yet, I pull this old favorite off the shelf, and sit down to enjoy the read!
