“His eyes settled on her…piercing green embers of flame that revealed the ferocity of his pain and passion, yet still shrouded him under veils of ever deepening mystery that made every ounce of her ache to unravel him.”

Tegan Lockwood’s dreams were dead, sacrificed on the noble altar of duty before they ever had a chance to live. Her entire existence was disappearing into the abyss of apathy as she labored her days away keeping her family’s struggling business alive. There would be no emotion, no color, no beauty in her life. That is, until a mysterious visitor begins to draw her out of the darkness of her past towards something that will challenge the boundaries of her world, and unlock the most deeply held secrets of her heart.

Me thinks

There is something beautiful about love stories, you can never have enough of them. And they are sure to make your day. No wonder romance continues to be my favourite genre, something that is a go-to option whenever I am in mood for some TLC. This book falls in that category. I was approached by the author when I was going through troublesome times. (Universe does listen to you!) This book is a heart warming love story, one that can brighten up your dullest days and make you smile bright. I have nicknamed this book sunshine for its just that - it warms us your insides and make you believe in the magic of love.

I loved the narrative which is simple yet is powerful and is moving. In romance the key is in emotions and that is where the author has done a stellar job. It has right proportions of everything ranging from heartbreak, pain, angst, hurt to love and romance. I was grinning like a Cheshire cat once I was done reading it. And I read it all over again before posting the review just to bask in the innocence of this heartfelt story.

The characters are so lively that you cannot help but become a part of their world before living their story with them. When you are done reading you feel as if a close friend just shared their love story with you.

Recommended strongly for all romance lovers and for those who don't for this one might just make you believe in love!
