reviewed The Man For Her on
An old fashioned real romance. I loved it. Good story and characters and light on the sex scenes! Irish charmer Patrick left Lottie with a child out of wedlock, promising to return, but never did. Sean arrives 10 years later, searching for his cousin Patrick and finds Lottie still waiting for Patrick to come home. Sean and Lottie both have to go through a lot of growing up before they can find their way to each other. Very good read.

Reviewer: Jennifer French (Garland, TX United States) -

Sean O'Connor has waited 10 years for his cousin, Patrick Malone, to send for him. Patrick left his native Ireland for America, searching for gold in the hills of Canada. Finally, Sean has made it to the country on his own, and finds himself in the the town of Prospect, searching for his cousin and gold.

Lottie Graham has also been waiting for Patrick Malone. Ten years earlier, a love affair with Patrick culminated in a son, however Patrick left to pan gold, without ever returning. Having a child out of wedlock made Lottie a pariah in the town, causing her to retreat to the farm Patrick bought for her.

Sean ends up helping Lottie out on the farm in order to build up the funds to go gold panning. Lottie resent his reasons for being there, but ultimately needs the help that Sean provides around the farm. Slowly, the love affair builds in the book. Lottie must learn to love and trust again. Sean must learn that what he has at the farm is more important and more valuable than gold. THE MAN FOR HER is a good story and well worth the read.
