|The Nurse's Secret Suitor|
This author really gets romance!
Let’s begin with the summary:
A Strong-Willed Heart
Trauma nurse Kate Dalton can handle any challenge—except love. The combat veteran dreams of settling down, but heartbreak is one risk she won't take. Then a chance encounter opens her heart to a masked stranger…who might not be a stranger after all!
Caleb Landis, the army medic behind the disguise, has always admired Kate, even though she only saw him as her best friend's brother. What will it take for Kate to discard her fears and discover the man she's always hoped to unmask?
Eagle Point Emergency: Saving lives—and losing their hearts— in a small Illinois town.
And now, my review:
The opening scene is delicious, mysterious, and romantic, with an element you don’t often see in romance novels. I loved it!
Like I mentioned above, this author gets romance! And chemistry.
The element of secret identity is a favorite of mine in romance—from Clark Kent/Superman to this story. It adds a fairy-tale-esque feel that kept me turning pages. The number of encounters between the bandit and Kate was perfect for delighting readers.
Both the hero and the heroine hide behind masks. They’ll have to overcome their fears to let each other in. Our heroine has decided she has to be strong and will not lean on others or let people in. The hero has long ago determined what his future will be. He has tunnel vision toward his goals because of his need to prove himself (another thing these two leading characters have in common). I liked how they echoed each other’s hang-ups between the two of them, though they were a bit blind to their own. Good writing.
What an enjoyable book! Though Love Inspired novels are only in print a short time, you can always get this title for your e-reader. Enjoy!
