When she was a teenager, Raven Stratton’s father was killed in an automobile accident. Even worse, was that he was not alone. He was in the car with a married woman, Diana Pierce, along with their packed suitcases and plane tickets to Paris. Devastated by the public embarrassment and shame, Raven goes to live with her Aunt.
Then one day Dalton Pierce, the youngest son of the woman her father was running away with, walks into her bar. He is not aware of who Raven is or their shared circumstances “secret” of their past. He works with wood and is intrigued with Raven’s bar and when hired by Raven to restore it, he is even more intrigued by her. The shared secret of their past has effected both of their lives.
Raven vows she will not let this man get close to her. His family placed the blame on her father and she puts up a wall around herself while Dalton tries his best to win her over. Both are attracted to each other and thus begins the “dance” of their love story.
As with most romance books, the ending is not a BIG surprise. The way the characters get to the ending is what makes these books intriguing to the reader. This is my second book by this Author and most likely will not be my last. I enjoyed the story and found this book to be a fast read. This book also deals with grief, pain, trust, healing, starting over, letting go, taking chances and of course love.
