Safe in His Arms
Running away from her troubled city life, Lauren Foster never thought she'd find herself in small-town Maine. But Holiday Harbor is everything she's looking for. The townspeople are welcoming, her job at her friend's toy store is going well and, most important, she's safe. Meeting contractor Ben Thomas soon changes all that. With his good looks, easygoing nature and kind heart, he's turning her peaceful new life upside down. She's quickly falling for the local hero, but when her past catches up to her present, is she willing to face her fears for the future she's always dreamed of?
Holiday Harbor: Where love is just around the bend
I'd seriously put Holiday Harbor into my vacation plans if I could find it on a map! Ross has created a community that I not only want to visit, but that I could happily live in. I can smell the salty air, hear the crash of the waves against the shore. I want to trudge on up to the lighthouse and chat with Mavis now that I know all I have to do is fuss over her pot-bellied pig to get past that gruff crusty exterior. And think of the fun I'd have getting a first hand view of all those burgeoning romances! A matchmaker's paradise, I'd say. They should do bus tours. :-)
Ben and Lauren's romance reads like a fairy tale. There's lots of angst, a villain from the past and a knight in shining armor who knows it is better to encourage the damsel in distress rather then rescue her out right. Loved that about Ben. And really, what romance is not complete without a Shakespeare quoting macaw?
A truly delightful read.
