not normally a fan of "billionaire" style contemporary romances, but
because I love the SANCTUARY
ISLAND series of books so
much, I was enticed to ignore my preferences and stretch in my reading. I'm so
glad I tried this very well-written combination of novellas. It was great to be back on Sanctuary Island
with the quirky islanders who make this place so special. If you haven't read any of the books that
take place on Sanctuary
Island, you won't feel
lost by picking this one up first because it's mostly related by location. Hopefully, it will get you to pick up the
first two books in the SANCTUARY ISLAND series, SANCTUARY ISLAND and SHORELINE DRIVE, which I highly
is a different style of "billionaire" romance and made me realize
that not all tropes are created equal.
Lily Everett magically weaves heartrending emotion into every book she
writes, leaving the reader's heart joyful from the journey. This anthology makes me all the more anxious
for the third novel in the SANCTUARY
ISLAND series, HEARTBREAK
COVE, coming in March 2015.
