I really loved the relationship Allen and his puppy had, "fine, you can come out and watch the news with me. But no more messes on my floor. And you go right back in when I go upstairs to bed. Is that understood?" The puppy looked and him and then walked between his legs and into the living room." I also loved how Sara knew her own mind, "if I wanted to go home, I would be home." Smiling, she reached up on her toes and place a soft kiss on his mouth. "Now, point me in the direction of hot water ...more

I thought this was a lovely read, about love, finding your way, stalking, coming home, and to top it off suspense, mystery and romance.

Sarah comes home to her hometown to get away from a stalker. She wants her life back, she is coming back to a small town where she was raised, with people who have know her since birth there she will find open arms, friends and her family love. She has spent her life working for other and wants to live her dream of opening her own bakery. She opens Sarah’s Nook w

Sara Lander moved back to Pride after being gone for several years. She moved back home with her mom and younger sister but hopes that she won't have to live there much longer. Not that she doesn't love them but they depend on her to cook and clean since her mom is always busy working and her sister is spoiled. Sara has her eye on the antique shop that Allison owed. It's been vacant for years now and Sara has always deemed of owning her own bakery. One thing you can't get in Pride is a decent cu ...more

My Sweet Valentine by Jill Sanders

**Given ARC for a review**

Sara Landers wants to move forward, she wants something more than just working in a bakery. She wants to own it; get her hands dirty. When on a rainy night she looks into a building she feels is perfect for "Sara's Nook." Mix some rain and a little car trouble, all Sara is at the moment is cold and frustrated.

Allen Masters is a retired SEAL, now working for the Coast Guard. He is single and has his eye on Sara. Then one night, on his wa

I received a complementary copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Sara moved back home to Pride, Oregon after leaving Seattle where she was being stalked. She is now living with her mother and sister. After working at someone else's bakery Sara now wants her own business so opens Sara's Nook. As soon as she came to town, she met Allen who is a retired Navy SEAL and is now running a Coast Guard rescue station in Pride. They are immediately attracted to each other but Sara wants to

My Sweet Valentine is a light, quick read. An enjoyable story, though perhaps a little too quick to allow true connection to the characters.

Despite being a later title in the Pride series, this story does stand on its own. I'd not read any of the other tales in the series, so perhaps that attributed to my confusion at times. It seemed there were a lot of people mentioned I was supposed to know (and strangely enough, many of them with names starting with A, which made it more difficult to keep tr

Allen Masters had a near death experience while he was serving in Afghanistan and he had a vision of himself on the beach with a beautiful woman and a dog....He didn't stop until he made that vision become a reality and the first woman who walked into his life and who took his breath away was none other that Sara Lander one of Pride's very own.....who found her way back home after a few years away in Seattle.

I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. This is the first in the Pride series for me and I don't know why I haven't visited there before now. Sara Lander has moved back to Pride to open a bakery. Where she meets Coast Guard instructor Allen Masters, a retired Navy Seal. There seems is sparks between them from the first touch. Sara doesn't want a relationship now, she wants to get her bakery opened. Allen has never had these feelings before. Each time th ...more

This book brings sweet to whole new level!

Sara is just pure sweetness and has been chased back home to Pride Oregon by a stalker she was dealing with in Seattle. She is an amazing baker I guess it's because she just oozes sugar from her veins.

Allen is the head of the coastguard academy in Pride, and we figure out that he is a pure romantic at heart.

These two can cause a sweet tooth to develop if your not careful. She loves to bake and he loves to eat the sweet sugary deserts she creates. Their

Another sweet romance with a bit of a mystery! Jill started My Sweet Valentine in a way I've never seen (or noticed) before and I really enjoyed it. She overlapped the end of Red Hot Christmas and the beginning of My Sweet Valentine but changed the point of view to the new couple. Very cool idea! I wonder if the rest of the series is this way too!

Sarah made me want to start baking again. I'm not creative enough to come up with amazing new desserts or the names so I won't be opening a bakery any

**Provided ARC For Honest Review** I have read other books by this author before, but this is the first book in the Pride series for me. Sara moved back to Pride to begin her dream of owning/operating a bakery. Allen is a retired Seal who now works for the Coastguard. They were both attracted to each other as soon as meeting, but Sara thought she was too busy with opening the bakery to get involved with anyone. Allen didn't give up that easy. Soon they can't deny the feelings they have for each ...more
In My Sweet Valentine Sara Landers returns to Pride, Oregon and meets Allen Masters the chief of the local Coast Guard station, an ex-SEAL. Sara is a baker and works to open a new bakery in town, while getting to know Allen.

Sara has one big problem in life ~ a stalker. She hoped moving back to the Oregon Coast from Seattle would bring an end to living in terror but it seems to continue and escalates until the stalker is revealed at the end of the story.

I lived on the Oregon Coast for many years

The taste of love is sweet

For Allen, a former Seal, it was love at first sight when he saw Sara. Sara had returned to her hometown of Pride to hopefully outrun a stalker. She decides to start a bakery which is met with approval by the townspeople and especially by Allen who has a fully developed sweet tooth. Before too long the stalker catches up to Sara and now not only attacks her possessions but also her business and her life. Allen and their friends rally around Sara to keep her safe.

A cute story about a damsel in distress with a killer cupcake and a sexy military hero with a sweet tooth. A small town, a cute dog, and a pesky stalker... overall, a quick 3 STAR read. I would read another book in this series again but wouldn't pay for one of the books. This was a free download and others in the series have been free at times as well.

This was a sweet book. Sara and Allen met and there was instant chemistry. He followed gut on this because it had never led him wrong. She tried to fight it, but in the end she couldn't resist him. There are quiet a few funny characters in this novel as well, Beast, Larry, Allison and Josie. But, someone from Sara's past wants her gone....for good. ...more

Sara moves back to Pride because she wants to open a bakery and because she has been stalked by someone who tears up everything she has. She really doesn't believe the trouble will follow her home. Allen immediately realizes that Sara is the one he has been waiting for. Sara can't understand why someone like Allen is so interested in her, but she can't resist him. ...more
