The best things in life are in Pride, Oregon and I so wish we could travel there in real life! A sweet romance filled with a bit of suspense to keep the plot dancing with excitement is just the perfect combo for a great afternoon read! You absolutely could read this as a stand alone book, but if you really want to fully enjoy the characters, setting and stories you will want to go all the way back to the beginning of the original series and work your way to the current book! Trust me, you won't ...more

I am always happy to go back to Pride. Kara decides to go for a quick swim at night but doesn’t think about the danger. When Conner saves her, she has to rethink her opinion of him. Conner also has to rethink his opinion of her. She thinks that the single Jordan men are all players and he didn’t think about her too much before, but he is thinking about her a lot now. As they are starting to get closer, a man wants to buy the land she and her sister have, but they will not sell. Will he go to any ...more

Back to the wonderful town of Pride that we have grown to love so much. Another Jordan family member gets his story. This one has good chemistry right from the start, a dash of mystery and of course we get to catch up a little bit with some of the characters we already know so well. A great addition to the series, an easy read that will having you eagerly turning the pages.

I love visiting Pride. This story is a wonderful continuation of A Pride Christmas as we meet the offspring of Alice and Eric.

The story moves fast and furious and then you are at the end, boom! I know that I will reread this story because I just couldn't put it down. Kara and Conner are great together! Can't wait to see what happens next.

Wow what’s another amazing read

Wow what another amazing read from Jill. Connor and Kara are amazing together even though he was an a$$ after saving her from the ocean, couldn’t ask for a better woman for Connor Kara is an amazing woman and since her parents and his parents relationships moved fast so did theirs and their love grows faster.
Things doesn’t always go right problems arise like all of Prides couples things get in their way like shootings but love always wins couldn’t put this down as

Sweet romance with a twist of mystery. Love Kara and Connor's beginning of an "almost drowning", the story is in the eye of the beholder there. Connor is kind of lost as what he wants to be when he grows up and Kara knows exactly what she wants to be. Being together brings out the best in each other but danger is lurking. Add in extended family and love is all you need to overcome your questions about where you want to go in life when you find your true soul mate. ...more

An engaging, intriguing & sexy romance, with wonderful & warm characters you cannot get enough of.
Kara, would love to meet Mr Right.
Connor, will never marry.
But, he couldn't deny his thoughts
& attraction to Kara.
Captivated me from page one.
I didn't want it to end.
Can't wait for Robin's book!
A Definite Must Read!!

Pride, Oregon is one of my favorite places to visit! The stories, that Jill Sanders writes, make it seem like you are visiting as well. On this visit, I had a front seat view into the budding of a romance between Kara and Conner Jordan. The Jordan’s are an institute of Pride. Although quickly discover feelings for one another, there is much going on in this little town that can rip their love and lives apart. Love, lies, and mystery are always abound, and make for an enjoyable read. Don’t miss t ...more

Kara Jenkins runs a wedding venue in Pride with her sister Robin. Kara and Robin used to holiday in Pride with their parents when they were kids, it's where their parents met and to Kara is the most romantic town ever. Which is why their wedding venue is there.

Kara and Conner Jordan bump into each other when Kara is taking a late night swim. Their spark is instant. Lovely sweet romance story with some Jordan clan drama added in for good measure.

Kara knew what she wanted from life in high school and she accomplished part of it, she and her sister own a business together, only if her love life be as successful as professional one.
Conner is not sure what he wants from life...but this changes when he saves Kara.
I enjoyed reading this story a lot.
Loved it.

Fast paced romance. Both main characters are trying to figure out what they really want from life when they meet. Connor and Kara seem to be better together than apart. There is a mystery to the story and Kara ends up shot. The ending is a bit mixed.

Love returning to Pride, Oregon and it's wonderful citizens. Kara and Conner's story is a sexy, steamy romance with a bit of mystery and danger. These two are perfect for each other. Looking forward to more stories about the Jordan clan and the small town of Pride, OR. ...more

So good to be back in Pride. Kari and Conner were perfect for each other. Enjoy the family love and support. Throw in a little suspense makes for a super romance with an even better HEA.

1.5 stars maybe. First of all, it desperately needs an editor. Characters are called by the wrong name, words are missing or simply wrong, sometimes chapters start with no idea who the focus is until 3 pages in, and things are repeated like the author forgot she already had it in the previous scene. Has Conner worked for the Coast Guard for 18 months like he first claims or a few years like he later claims? Not even the author knows.

Second, the mystery is waaay on the back burner and isn't solve
