Lucas Rockworth—a hard-driving force of nature has been ordered by his doctor to take some time off and get his blood pressure under control. You would think buying a cabin in the natural splendor known as Gray Horse Lake, Idaho, would do the trick. All that mountain greenery, crystal blue lakes and rivers, and nature-run-amok had to be exactly what the doctor had ordered. ...more

Detour to Paradise has such a cute beginning. Sarah Burke's life is literally teetering on the edge of a cliff and she is rescued by taking a leap of faith and landing into the strong arms of Lucas Rockworth. If it weren't for such a charming start I most likely would've given up on this book.

You find out quickly that Lucas knows Sarah and has been lusting after her for awhile. Now that sweet, innocent Sarah needs help, Lucas takes the opportunity to seduce her, making her believe that he is som

What a touching love story. Sarah Burke is starting a camp for children with her friend, Deborah. Sarah is tired of not living up to her family's expectations in their business, Burke Realty. She has also broken up with her cheating fiance, Ned and has sworn off men.

I really enjoyed the beginning of the story where Sarah falls into the arms of Lucas Rockworth after a mother bear was chasing her. I enjoyed the humor and the sparring between Lucas and Sarah. I also enjoyed the fantasized view of

Another wonderful book by River Ames. The character development is such that one feels they are a silent observer in the background of the story. Loved this story from start to finish.

I received a free copy of this book and wanted to review.

This is the first book I have read from this author and I really enjoyed her writing style. She didn't feel the need to repeat herself in order to add more words to her story. The book itself was cute and had me hooked from the very first chapter.

The story line was very good and the romance was solid. I could feel the connection that Lucas and Sarah had and it really drew me in. I like that while there was obvious attraction and some kiss

I received a copy of this book for free. I was a little unsure about reviewing this book because I typically read a different genre, but I found that I still liked it. It’s a fast and enjoyable read – no need to develop a spreadsheet to track everyone’s names or their backstories.
Both of the main characters have a past that gives them reason to avoid future relationships, but in the end they find what they need to mend themselves. There are plenty of descriptions of desire, but it’s still whole
