This is a book with a great romance and a little bit of espionage thrown in. If you are reading this mainly for the secret spies, you may be a bit disappointed.

Claire is thrown into the spy business because Zane has been found. The 2 of them, along with her dog, have to flee and they travel from place to place, one step ahead of the assassin.

One of the best ways to keep your heart healthy is to read a Barbara Samuel's book. For Christmas Forever is such a beautiful surprise that I find myself at a loss of words to describe it. This stunning book has all the elements of emotion that we have come to love in Ms. Samuel's writing ~ humor and sweet innocence coupled with fierce passion is a heady combination. A quote from a passage in this latest story, "Lord have mercy."

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were really well developed and complex and the premise was unusual. It was suspenseful and humorous and sad. It ran the emotional gamut. Claire hasn’t had much Christmas cheer in her life and when the tall, dark and mysterious Zane Hunter arrives earlier than expected at her bed and breakfast she decides it might be time to start celebrating the holiday. Barbara Samuel’s writes such wonderful characters and these are certainly no exception. Definitely w ...more

Zane Hunter goes to Claire Franklin’s bed and breakfast on an island in the Puget Sound to recover from an accident and plot revenge on the person who caused it. Unfortunately, he brought danger with him when he arrived. As they run for their lives, they open up and get to know each other as no one else has. The intrigue and suspense will keep you guessing until Zane and Claire get their happily ever after! I loved it.
