I was bored with writing my own novel and started hunting around on my reader to find something I hadn't read yet and found this. I thought it was going to be just another sleepy romance novel (I've hit a few of those in my day) and I was really surprised that it wasn't. I read the entire book in less than a day.

Ryan Devaney is the oldest brother of three who was abandoned by his parents when he was nine. He and the two that were abandoned with him had come home from school one day and his paren

Uma graça de história! Bem fofa e humana, do jeito que eu gosto.

Ryan é dono de um bar irlandês, e em uma véspera do dia de Ação de Graças é incitado pelo padre, um frequentador assíduo, a ajudar uma mocinha em dificuldades a chegar em casa. É claro que o fato da moça ser bonitinha não influi em nada em sua decisão de bom cristão...

Maggie é uma moça decidida, ela abandonou um emprego tedioso como contadora e resolveu voltar a morar com os pais até conseguir alguma coisa mais apropriada, e seu car

This book had a good premise but I did not find the heroine likable at all. She was extraordinarily pushy and practically demanded that the lead male tell her all about his past and troubles within ten minutes of meeting her.

The few times he tells her to back off, the book treats him like some insensitive monster, completely ignoring the fact that a woman he barely knows is trying to play psychologist e ...more

An ok book but I just wish that Sherryl Woods would think up different names in her books/series as it gets very confusing!

WOW, what fantastic dynamics between characters. The plot is so riveting that you do not want to put it down. This is one of her older series but I highly recommend you find the series at your local library, second hand store or online site to complete the collection to read as I did you will not be sorry.

With two other careers to her credit before becoming a novelist and four states in which she's lived for extended periods of time, Sherryl Woods has collected friends and memories, along with way too much unnecessary junk.

"The friends are the only things I've brought with me through the years that really matter," she says. "I could probably live without one more chintz teacup, another tin-litho sa
