Book Description

In this novella, bad boy, Dane MacKenzie, is coming home to Surrender, Montana. It’s been ten years since he left the woman he loved behind to make a name for himself, and now he’s bound and determined to claim her once and for all.

But Charlotte Munroe has no desire to welcome home the Prodigal Son with a fatted calf. The bitterness of Dane’s betrayal runs deep, and she has no plans of letting him back into her life. Especially since she’s trying to protect the son Dane isn’t aware exists from heartbreak, since she’s sure he’s only going to walk out of their lives again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Potential is there, but too short to deliver September 18, 2011
By Karlyn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked this very short ebook up free, so didn't have much expectations. I thought the writing was good, and I would read more by this author. My only beef is this story moved at such a fast pace! It had potential, including (what could be) a great cast of characters for a series, but over all it was too short to care about the characters. So much was left unsaid and unaddressed. BUT, since this appears to be a teaser for a series, we may get those answers in later books.

The author wants us to believe that a woman who has raised her son alone for 9 years, because Dad left town. Who has the smarts to run her own business, and run her father's farm, is dumb enough to falls right back in Dane's arms within minutes. It reads like maybe 5 minutes had passed before she is not only having sex with Dane but unprotected sex at that! women with any self-respect would do that. All Dane needs to do is bang her a few times says he is sorry and that is that?! What a crock! Don't waste your time on this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars No plot. Just sex. Spoiler alert! August 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The description of this "book" talks about a woman who was left heartbroken, alone and pregnant. She will never forgive the man
Who left her this way. Five minutes after a chance encounter they are having steamy sex in a garage!
No plot or character development. Penthouse Forum is far more believable. Oh, the book cover does deserve 5 stars!

1.0 out of 5 stars Completely Lacking August 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Everything about this "book" bothers me. I realize that most romance novels and erotica succumb to purple prose, but if you're going to go on about a character's physical features and use cliched phrases, at least make it consistent. Hart makes a reference to a character's "cobalt eyes" (purple prose and cliched) but then only pages later refers to them as grey eyes. Call me crazy, but I don't think cobalt and grey are the same color. Beyond that, Charlie's character is a frickin' idiot. Someone who got pregnant and then left, and was supposedly emotionally scarred by the event, does NOT sleep with said impregnator the second she sees him again without even a blip of a thought of using a condom and not getting pregnant again. The sex was even boring, I skipped over most of it in a rush to just finish the book and get it off my kindle.

Yes, this was a free ebook. Yes, it was advertised as an erotic romance. All I'm asking for is a little quality! (And also better editors).

2.0 out of 5 stars Dane - Spoilers August 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a book written solely for the sex, I get that there are a lot of people who really like that so that's not the issue I have with this book. It's just that the sexy scenes weren't sexy and there is just a suspension of disbelief that I just couldn't attain. I mean I GUESS I can see jumping the bones of the guy who left you broken-hearted and pregnant (even though he didn't know about it) as soon as you see him, even though you just tried to maim him. I can understand the guy being all hot and bothered by her but when the guy finds out this big secret and he just is all, whatever, I'm here now wish I knew before, now let's go have sex. That's weird, a guy is either going to be super pissed or scared off by Charlotte's deceit. THEN, THEN oh hey we've been apart for 10 years, let's get hitched....really because in 10 years you don't think either of you have changed at all?!? Ok, this is a book about the sex not the story, but really both aspects are pretty lacking...but I guess it was

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable August 23, 2012
By J. Eudy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a great, quick read! The character development was fast but well done. It followed the typical romance novel path, just at an abbreviated pace. I found the story and its brevity to be refreshing. I'm a fan of a romance novel, but sometimes it is exhausting getting through all of the things that are keeping the couple apart/reasons they can't be together, so this was a great change of pace.
I also really enjoyed the preview of the next book- I'm looking into purchasing the whole series right now!

3.0 out of 5 stars Quick easy read September 2, 2011
By A. A.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This short story tells of the homecoming of bad boy Dane and the less than warm welcome given by his old childhood sweetheart, Charloette. But who could blame her? Dane left her abruptly without a word, and worse still, with a baby he did not know about...

One may puzzle over why if Dane loved Charloette as much as he did, he would hook up with other females in the interim and he never tried to contact her. But bam, when he meets her, he wants her again. Alas, the fickle nature of a man's heart. If you can suspend your disbelief over this change of attitude, this book makes a quick, easy read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Epic nonsense October 31, 2013
By Chelsea
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was so short and to the point... there was no time for me to get really entwined in the story. The book was to short and the plot was developed to quickly. Clearly this author didn't have anything to write about... this book was a waste of time!! Thank God it was free :/ don't buy the other books in the series... that might very well be a disappointment to. The only reason I'm giving it one star is because amazon requests at least one star

1.) I have a Coke first thing every morning instead of coffee.

2.) I try to read at least one book a day (when I'm not on deadline), sometimes two or three if I have the itch. Reading is one of my greatest pleasures.

3.) I decided to be a writer my freshman year of college. Which, of course, is why I majored in music and art history.

4.) I started writing my first book when I was eighteen. It was about a 30-year-old virgin assassin. Yes, you read that right. It's buried in the far corner of my closet.

5.) I didn't complete my first book until I was twenty-five, but I've written nineteen books since then. I'm 32.

6.) I love being a writer. It gives me an excuse to think about different ways to kill people and to take weird vacations for the tax deductions.

7.) I could eat macaroni and cheese every day. I love it! But my hips do not.

8.) I'm very slow to make new friends. I'm a pretty solitary person, so when you see me at booksignings and conventions, I'm completely out of my comfort zone, which is why it's so nice when I have readers come up and talk to me like they already know me. It puts me at ease.

9.) My favorite cities are: New Orleans, Louisiana--Dublin, Ireland--Vevey, Switzerland--Napa Valley, California

10.) I like Milk Duds more than I probably should. I'm sure one day it'll catch up to me.

11.) I love to travel. I'm perfectly content to wake up on a random morning and say, I'm going here today." And then I'll buy a plane ticket and pack a suitcase. There are still so many places I'd love to see.

12.) I spent a summer in Ireland when I was in college with a random family I'd never met or spoken to before. It was one of the bravest and most adventurous things I've done. A great experience.

13.) I hated high school. If I could go back and do it over I'd try to graduate early and get the heck out of there.

14.) I have a weakness for fast cars.

15.) I performed at Carnegie Hall when I was in college, and toured Europe with a percussion ensemble one summer.

16.) I spent four years in college majoring in Percussion. It is now completely useless since I'm writing books full time, but it does give me an advantage when playing Rock Band.

17.) I'm addicted to gaming. When I take vacations between books, a good part of the time goes to playing RPGs.

18.) The cleanest place I've ever been is Switzerland.

19.) I don't gamble. When I go to Vegas I spend my time at concerts and shows.

20.) Purple is my favorite color. Go Frogs! (TCU alum)

21.) I love a good mystery.

22.) I've had impacted wisdom teeth for years, but I have no desire to get them taken out.

23.) The Keurig is the best invention known to man. I love my English breakfast tea.

24.) I like to sit down in the shower. I'll often stick my Kindle in a plastic bag and read in there for an hour.

25.) I spend a lot of time thinking of ways to kill people, and I have a tendency to zone out in the middle of a conversation if it's a really good idea.
