Opening Line:"Hospitals. He’d sworn once that he would never set foot in on again."

Sean Holt was left (you guessed it) standing at the altar. Without so much as a backwards glance Aurora Sheridan (Rory) broke his heart and spirit without ever bothering to explain why. Instead a week later she just up and married another man and left town for good.

Sean had once thought that losing his leg and a promising athletic career would be the worst pain he’d ever have to face. He was wrong. It took a year
Left at the Altar is Sean's story. We met him in Stevie's Chase and he was not a happy person. He was angry at himself, the world for making him lose his leg when he was just 20 and ending his dreams of an athletic career, it took him a long time to get over the bitterness and even a longer time to accept himself and his life. Five year ago when he was just starting to heal, Rory the woman he loved left him on their wedding day and when he went after her, what her dad said affected him for a lon ...more
Another entry in my goal to re-read and review all the books laying around my house for days, months, weeks, years, or decades.

This book is from 1994. Justine Davis likes tortured heroes, and this has both tortured hero and heroine. Sean is an amputee. He lost the lower half of his leg after a car accident. Despite being handsome, intelligent, and employed, he fears no woman can overcome being repulsed by his leg. (This seems pretty dismissive of women to me.)

A few years ago, he met and fell in
This is the second in a trilogy that also includes "Stevie's Chase" and "Morning Side of Dawn".

This book follows Sean Holt, who was jilted at the altar several years earlier by a woman who has now come back into his life following the death of her father. It was Aurora "Rory" Sheridan's father who told Sean in the first place that the reason she didn't want to marry him was because she deserved a "whole man". Sean, believing that she couldn't bear to marry an amputee, was profoundly affected by
Better quality traditional romance. The author uses the POV's of both characters about equally, which I enjoy. There is an excellent cast of secondary characters, and we see some of their stories in the other books of the series.
I really enjoyed this book. I thought the character of Sean was very likable, and though I didn't at first, I grew to like Rory. She did make me angry because she seemed so dumb and meek at times. I would have liked more details about how they managed to get rid of Frank in the end... it didn't seem like they were really secured against him. I also liked Dar and Chase... I'm glad that this is part of a series... I'll have to read both of them now!
Typical premise for a romance story, hero and heroine break up because of a misunderstanding, then fall immediately back in love once the misunderstanding is cleared up. Still, it was a likable story.

Author biographies are supposed to give you all those statistics, books written, awards won, etc. and I will, I promise...but first let me tell you about this ornery little tomboy (back then, the boys had all the fun...) who was always the one to make up the stories the neighborhood kids would "play". For those who came of age in the computer game era, this is something that was done usually in th ...more
