When Nell Channing arrives on charming Three Sisters Island, she believes that she’s finally found refuge from her abusive husband—and from the terrifying life she fled so desperately eight months ago… But even in this quiet, peaceful place, Nell never feels entirely at ease. Careful to conceal her true identity, she takes a job as a cook at the local bookstore café—and begins to explore her feelings for the island sheriff, Zack Todd. But there is a part of herself she can never reveal to him—for she must continue to guard her secrets if she wants to keep the past at bay. One careless word, one misplaced confidence, and the new life she’s created so carefully could shatter completely. Just as Nell starts to wonder if she’ll ever be able to break free of her fear, she realizes that the island suffers under a terrible curse—one that can only be broken by the descendants of the Three Sisters, the witches who settled the island back in 1692. And now, with the help of two other strong, gifted women—and with the nightmares of the past haunting her every step—she must find the power to save her home, her love…and herself…
Iain Sinclair, Marquis of Alynwick , is a rake if there eer was one. Aside from his loyalty to the Brethren Guardians, he loves no one. That is, no one but Elizabeth York, a blind beauty that he had had an affair with and then thrown away, something he wished he could forget forever.
Elizabeth no longer see Iain Sinclair as anything but a mistake, and one not to be made again, no matter how attracted she is to him. But she longs to solve a mystery that has bewildered her for years. An ancestral diary talks about a veiled lady who she wants to learn the identity of, and she’ll even let Ian help her to do it.
This is definitely a book worth reading. Full of passion, love, and whispered promises, it’s one of my favorite steamy romances. Both Elizabeth and Iain are great characters and the passion between them was so sweet. The devotion Iain has for Elizabeth is sweet without being sappy and cliched, and I liked the lengths he would go to right wrongs, which were by no means small. Elizabeth had good reason to be angry at him, and I’m glad that was never undermined.. Definitely a good story for anyone who enjoys hot and sexy romances.
Four cousins want to visit their family in the Ozark mountains, willing to even drive through blizzards to get to Granny Forrester’s home. And on the way they find love just in time for the holidays.
This book is made up of four inspirational stories from four different authors. Some I liked and some I didn’t.
