Pat's Review:

A very enjoyable contemporary romance that had me despairing at lost chances, then cheering and laughing at the same time!

Claire Franklin is all ready for her big day, waiting for the music to start. Then she gets a phone call from her fiancĂ© Adam, and next thing she knows she’s on a honeymoon flight to the Dominican Republic for their honeymoon . . . alone. On her way to a solitary dinner she literally bumps into a handsome stranger, and has a wardrobe malfunction that won’t let them go! They share dinner, and decide to enjoy the beauty of the resort together while they can.

Dr. Deacon Montgomery is at the resort for a week long veterinary conference where he is giving a lecture. It’s the first time away from his 2 1/2 year old twins and responsibility at home. The mother of the twins left when they were infants, but thanks to his family they have grown and blossomed. Claire and Deacon form an instant attraction that shocks Claire. Was she really in love with Adam (her ex) or was she just settling? Deacon decides to stay past the convention date and an island romance flourishes. All they know about each other is names, and they can’t fight the sexual attraction.

When Deacon doesn’t show for a planned excursion, she is immediately worried, but then finds out he left in the middle of the night. She didn’t know Deacon had received an emergency call from his parents, one of the twins, Maci had a ruptured appendix and was having immediate surgery. He was so agitated he realized he left without even knowing Claire’s last name. All she knew was she had been left--again.

A new job, and a new place in Chicago, keeps her too busy to realize how much she misses Deacon. But suddenly a very unexpected gift from their romantic week throws her life into chaos. She even hires a PI to find him. Meanwhile Adam contacts her to let her know he is marrying the woman he was cheating on her with.

The anticipation of them finally finding each other kept me reading as fast as I could. Deacon can’t forget her, and Claire, even as her life is exploding around her, misses him terribly.

I love all of Ms. Connor’s stories, but this is a special one. It can be read as a stand-alone.
