D. V.'s Review 🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉
*I received this book as an advanced reader in exchange for a fair review.*
Some people are made for cities, and others for places like Wylder, a quintessential small town in the USA state of Wyoming. The world-building of this engrossing read, plopped me down in places that felt familiar to me. All the characters, even the secondary ones we meet, all play a part in the main characters’ lives, as most communities do.
Despite long-held dreams of joining her father in his local law firm, EJ Hampton is instead an Attorney in a prominent San Francisco law firm. Tragedy drove her from Wylder, and tragedy brought her home.
Dylan Addison is the son of a big-city developer whose heart is revitalizing rural towns and making a difference in people’s lives while winning the respect of his successful father.
Though this is a shorter read, 147 pages, the author takes the time to build this slow-burn romance into a sensual encounter between characters who are growing to love and respect each other.
I highly recommend this book. And read it in one sitting under the canopy of my maple tree in a small town.
This is part of a series of Romantic stories published by The Wild Rose Press that take place throughout time in a fictional town called Wylder, Wyoming.
My love of reading dates back to my childhood when I would borrow at least four books from the library every week. During the summer, I would sit in the house and read, until my mother, totally frustrated, would send me outside to play and lock me out. I always found my way back in. However, I must confess, I hated to write. In every English and writing class throughout college, I dreaded trying to be creative. As a friend from law school so aptly put it, “The reason why we’re here is because we don’t have a creative bone in our bodies.”
Despite my dislike of creative writing back then, I embraced legal writing, and was first published in Volume 5 of the Fordham International Law Journal. My article was entitled “In re Mackin: Is the Application of the Political Offense Exception an Extradition Issue for the Judicial or Executive Branch?” I would advise you against reading it, for you will surely fall asleep.
While practicing law as a divorce attorney, I decided to try for some balance in my life and began writing romance. Thankfully, I found my creative bone. Instead of only drafting motions, legal memoranda, and briefs, although fascinating, I started to spend my free time creating memorable characters and taking them on their emotional journeys through my contemporary romance novels.
