Letters to a Secret Lover
May 5, 2008 - 7:15:44 PM
Lindsey Brooks, one-half of one of
Chicago’s most successful, high-profile couples, decides to seduce her stuffed shirt of a fiancé by serving him dinner in just an apron, only to have her picture snapped by a window washer hanging outside her high rise apartment. It is inevitable, with said fiancé mortified by the mostly nude photos of Lindsey floating around on the web and in the gossip rags, that their engagement would be broken. Lindsey flees for the quiet of
Falls, the small
Montana town she visited as a child, where her late aunt owned a boat rental. Despite a rocky first meeting with Rob Colter, the gorgeous new owner of the boat rental, they’re soon spending more and more time together. Lindsey is deeply curious about a hidden stash of heartfelt love letters she stumbles across, obviously written by Rob to an unknown woman; the same woman whose name is tattooed over his heart. She and Rob are both taken off guard by the attraction between them and when their relationship becomes intimate, it becomes clear that Lindsey isn’t the only one with a secret.
Rob Colter sees Lindsey as a spoiled, shallow city girl who’s more concerned with appearances and labels than appreciating her surroundings. When she asks to work with him at the boat rental to see the area as her aunt saw it, he is struck by her willingness to do whatever is needed without complaint, and soon finds her totally irresistible. When dark, dangerous secrets from Rob’s past begin to surface, he believes the only solution is to leave
Falls, dismissing Lindsey and any future that they might have together, and thoroughly breaking her heart.
Toni Blake never fails to provide readers with a captivating story, intriguing lead characters, and secondary characters who are a charming bonus. Lindsey and Rob are written so realistically that you can’t help but feel their every emotion and share their pain from past misunderstandings. I have read all of Ms. Blake’s previous books and truly feel that this just might be her best work to date. I highly recommend LETTERS TO A SECRET LOVER to all romance lovers!
