A Summer to Remember by Mary Balogh

This book is classic Mary Balogh, with a slow-building love story that's poignant and transformative. The depth of kindness the characters show toward each other (after a rough beginning) made me think the "k" word gets a terrible rap. It's possible...more

Ross Cannon is the sheriff of London and its environs. If you dare to make trouble for the innocent citizens, he'll be on you like a panther on the prowl.

Tortured Nick Gentry precedes Christian Grey by a decade and makes the "don't touch me" agony layered and deeply emotional. There's nothing Nick does that isn't consistent with the emotionally scarred, somewhat immature, reckless, pragmatic, driven,...more
