A detective, Nick has trouble leaving his job at work when he comes home. Threats from some of the thugs he goes after leaves him in fear for his wife and he would do anything to protect her. But when he is served with divorce papers, he becomes desperate to win her back. Between a television talk show host and a fortune teller whom he consults, he knows he must provide Paula with her heart craving, but he has no idea what that is. So he consults several books, which leave him believing it all comes down to passion.
Meanwhile, what Paula truly wants is open, honest communication, but the desire that Nick stirs in her doesn’t hurt. As he surprises her time after time, she begins to see a whole new Nick, but is it enough to make her stop the divorce and try to start anew with him?
A touching tale, HEART CRAVING, beautifully penned by author Sandra Hill, is a humorous, sexy contemporary romance that readers will have trouble putting down. A quick read, it is perfect for an afternoon’s escape. I absolutely loved Nick. He truly loves his wife and is not afraid of making a fool of himself to win her back, to the delight of some of his friends who try to lend a helping hand. His methods are creative and sensual, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. As with any couple conflict, there are two sides to the story and Paula may just find that she needs to do some adjusting herself if they are to give their love a second chance.
This story is one that Ms. Hill wrote early in her career, but it is just as wonderful today. I have been a fan of Ms. Hill’s work for years, but have never read this story. I am glad I finally got the chance to read it. If you have never read anything by Ms. Hill, this novella is the perfect opportunity. HEART CRAVING is a revised reissue of Ms. Hill’s story that was published in the LOVESCAPE anthology years back. For a real treat, pick up a copy today!
