This is an older series romance that has been reprinted probably because Tami Hoag, much like Nora Roberts and Linda Howard, has become popular and better known for their newer mainstream books.

When the man who broke her heart not one but three times shows up on her door out of the blue with a marriage proposal Julia is mad. Apparently, S.T. (AKA Storm)now in his mid 30's has finally grown up and realized he's ready to settle down and Julia is the only woman for him. Unfortunately, for Storm and his enormous ego, Julia hasn't sat around pining away for him and is engaged to another man but he doesn't let that stop him from being a big overbearing boob and wooing her back into his bed.

This book thoroughly and completely annoyed me. The dialogue is unbelievable and the story filled with cliches. The other man, the stable doctor, is of course portrayed as a complete bore and the hero is just so over-the-top ridiculous that I wasn't buying it.

There were many great little romances written in the 90's that deserve reprinting but this wasn't one of them.

A romance by the crime writer, about a trauma nurse, Julia McCarver, and her adventures with a romantic interest of three traumatic departures in her life. "Storm" Dalton is trying once again to win her back. He claims he has changed and has two weeks to prove it. Fast read.
