Man of Her Dreams (Welcome to Ravenwood Book 1)

Amazon: Man of Her Dreams

Lindsay Swanson doesn’t have much time for the dating scene, and even if she did her luck in that department is leaving her with a batting average of a big fat zero. Lindsay owns her own renovation business, she’s very talented at envisioning and creating any project that comes her way. From start to finish-she does it all. She lives a quiet life at her home in her small town of Ravenwood and by word of mouth her company does exceptionally well at bringing in new customers.

Jared Kane is a well known author with several books on the New York Best Sellers list. Trying to take a little break from the crazy hustle and bustle of New York, where nobody cares who you are or what you do, Jared moves to Ravenwood. With his good fortune, he learns that he’s living next to a very beautiful woman who just happens to renovate homes, and he is living in an old home that definitely could use some tender loving care.

 

Sparks start to fly the moment these two run into each other at the grocery store and Lindsay steals his loaf of bread. With a little determination and the help of a misplaced notebook complete with a list of Lindsay’s dream man, Jared starts using his charm to worm his way into her heart. When it comes to light that he’s been using her list, she instantly become suspicious of his intentions and Jared must work fast to prove his love before he loses her.

 

A very cute and clean romance! I am new to Sue Barr’s writing, but I’m glad I was given the opportunity to review her book. The characters of the small town of Ravenwood could be in any small town, my town included. With small town gossip, high school drama that you never outgrow, and small town softball rivalries it fit my town perfectly. It’s fun to be able to put your feet up and enjoy a good clean romance that still can get the heart pumping fast with the steamy yet clean make out session. I’ll put this author right up there with Kimberly Krey: good clean writing with some steamy and fun action.

The Moses Chronicles: Bondage

The Moses Chronicles Bondage

Moses: Struggling with not quite fitting into the popular beliefs and practices of the other Egyptians, Moses finds himself starting to find empathy for the Hebrew Slaves. Not willing to “visit” the harems with the other royalty, helping to free a Hebrew from false accusations of being a thief, and protecting a group of Hebrew women from the leering grasps of a fellow Egyptian are just a few ways that Moses notices that he’s not quite like the others.

Miriam/Caleb: Miriam, a Hebrew slave, has always watched Moses the best she can without becoming detected. Miriam finds herself loving Moses and wanting to protect and watch over him, being his older sister who helped save him from being killed when he was an infant, she can’t seem to let him go. Miriam pushes his little basket through the water into the arms of an Egyptian Princess, Bithiah. In love with Miriam, Caleb tries multiple times to keep her out of harm’s way. Not an easy task, because Miriam is always jumping from one dangerous situation to another.

Bithiah/Mered: Bithiah struggles with being a “branded” princess, since she is an unwed mother, but having adopted a Hebrew baby and pulling him from the water, she rises above that brand and loves Moses with all her heart. Secretly she is drawn to the palace scribe, Mered.

I had an internal battle of whether I wanted to read this book, I’ve grown up knowing the story of Moses and how he frees the Hebrews from bondage, but that’s all this was to me, a story from the Bible. Finally, my curiosity and my love of reading new books won out and I opened up the first page. To say I was hooked was an understatement! The characters came alive, they begged for your attention, and I couldn’t put it down. Every free second I had, the book was in my hand and I was devouring the words. This old story was rewritten and given life. What a remarkable account. I recommend this book to any reader, it didn’t fall into my specifications of a “religious” book, and I feel anyone would enjoy it, I never felt preached to. Bondage is a great read for all types of readers, whether it is: mystery, suspense, romance, or action.
