To beautiful Laura Nolan, the mansion on Indigo Place wasn't just a home-it was her life's passion. Now old family debts were forcing her to sell and, much to her surprise, James Paden was the prospective buyer. Once the high school bad boy, he'd been too dangerous to flirt with, but too gorgeous to ignore. Now he was all man, and he still had the devastating power to seduce Laura's senses, to make her shiver with emotions she dared not confess.... He was a rebel millionaire on the wrong side of the tracks. Years ago, James Paden skipped town, leaving behind Saturday-night drag races for the thrill of the professional race circuit. He'd burned rubber in the fast lane of beautiful women and big money, but now he's back, a millionaire tycoon with a dream--to lay claim to 22 Indigo Place and its alluring owner. In his mind Laura had always been the girl he couldn't have, the rich man's daughter for whom he'd never be good enough ... until that moonlit night when the fierce touch of his lips branded her forever his.

This was a great book. Although this book has plenty of spontaneous sex with various partners, this one had a murder investigation plot. I loved the way the Police Chief and Frankie finally got together, and the ending was very romantic. One of her best books by far.

Overall this was a good book. It was a little slow in the beginning. I was a little put off by the Spanish words used throughout. There is a glossary in the back of most of the Spanish words, but not all. I found myself going back there over and over so I could understand what was going on. The last half of the story was great, and I had a hard time putting it down. There were a lot of "flashback" type parts, but it connected the story together nicely.

Amishwoman Sara Lapp, all but shunned for studying with the local doctor to become a midwife, is shocked that, after months of waiting, her first call to tend a birth comes from self-appointed outcase Mad Adam Zuckerman, except that Adam's wife has already died in childbirth.
Adam did not call Sara to tend the birth, but to give her his children. Though Sara knows his girls belong with their father, how can she leave them with a man who seems not to care for them? As much as she loves and wants the girls, she decides that she will only take them long enough to teach Adam to love them.
Adam is afraid to love his children, afraid that in doing so, he will hurt them in the way his father hurt him. Without Abby to protect them, Adam must find someone else, and he can think of only one woman brave enough, Spinster Sara Lapp, the little midwife whose passion for things beyond her control is greater than is good for her.
When Adam falls from the barn loft, drunk, Sara moves in to tend him, and she brings his girls. Then the Bishop takes a stand--a man and woman living together must marry or be shunned--and Sara and Adam will be forced to face the greatest challenge of their lives.

This was a great book. I couldn't put it down and finished it in one day. I learned a lot about the Amish through this book. I hope Ms. Blair does a story for Emma and Jordan.


By Honor Bound: His Sister's Kiss / Major Pleasure / Charming Annie
Review Date: 4/18/2012
Helpful Score: 1


This was a great book. The stories all interacted and each one picked up after the story before it. His Sister's Kiss is about Abraham and Angela (the parents). Next is Major Pleasure which is about Blayne (the son) and Jemma. And lastly, Charming Annie is about Annie (the daughter) and Mace. Each story was short and could have been longer (only because I hated to see them end). All well written, erotic and hot, hot, hot!

This is book 6 of the Rock Creek Six. From the cover:
To the folks in tiny Rock Creek, Texas, Daniel Cash was a ladies' man with a smile as quick as his draw. Yet the infamous gunslinger with the lengendary charm harbored painful memories of the girl he'd left behind when the War Between the States demanded his duty. Cash believed Nadine Ellington was better off without the man he'd become, but when she rode into town, dragging his past with her, Cash was tempted to consider another future...with her by his side.

Nadine had long ago given up waiting for Cash to return--she was too busy raising the son he didn't know he had. And though she'd never forgiven Cash's betrayal, she needed him now--to prove to their reckless, headstrong child that the life a a gun-for-hire is no life at all. But seeing Cash again awakens feelings she'd thought long dead--and soon she's wondering if the boy she once loved still lingers beneath the hardened face of the man she can't resist...

This was a very good book. The relationship between Veronica and Scott was funny and sweet, but very hot. I wouldn't mind a neighbor like him lusting after me.
