From Booklist

After 40-year-old Cynthia Landon's lowlife husband drives her to bankruptcy, she moves from Manhattan, where she'd had a successful clothing-design business, to O'Fallon's Landing, Tennessee, where she grew up. The only male she still trusts is her genius eight-year-old son, Lawrence. Local bad-boy Quaid O'Fallon, home from the Coast Guard, has had a thing for Cynthia since he was a teenager. At first, Cynthia doesn't take him seriously. After all, he's seven years younger than she is. But Quaid is no quitter, and soon he has Lawrence wanting him for a father and Cynthia wanting him, period. Castell's contemporary romance is filled with quirky characters, from the nuns with the black bandanas to the ghost of Ulysses S. Grant. And there's lots of action involving secondary characters. Fans of Lori Foster will like the buzz and level of sensuality in this sequel to Castell's The Way U Look Tonight (2006). Shelley Mosley

Format: Paperback
When Quaid O'Fallon learns of trouble at home involving his baby half-sister and her missing mother, he quickly abandons his Coast Guard job and without a backward glance, returns to Fallon's Landing to be with his father. Quaid was cruelly neglected as a child, stubbornly surviving an abusive environment, he was fortunate enough to be adopted by Rory O'Fallon who raised him as one of his own.

Quaid's first night at home finds him face to face with Cynthia Landon James, a snobby little rich girl who, being a few years older and the stuff of a young boy's dreams, never gave Quaid the time of day. Now she too has returned home, albeit under different circumstances. Cynthia has divorced the cheating husband who ran her successful clothing design business into the ground, resulting in her and their eight year old son, Lawrence, being left with absolutely nothing. Cynthia returns to her mother's home-turned-B&B, shocked to find her gorgeous childhood home looking more than a little shabby, and her mother imbibing uncharacteristic quantities of liquor. Cynthia has sworn off men - all men - and is determined to raise Lawrence on her own.

Passions quickly flare between Quaid and Cynthia, and each and every time they are together, Cynthia insists that it has to be the last time. Quaid feels differently and while he has his hands full with the mystery of his father's missing lover, the relationship woes of a dear family friend, and running his father's business, all he truly wants his hands full of is Cynthia. He just can't get enough of her and while he is determined to have more than just a brief fling, convincing her that they could have much more may prove to be the most difficult of all of the tasks in front of him.

Cynthia Landon is coming back to the town where she grew up with an 8 year old son broke and a broken marriage. Having sworn of men, the last thing she needs in her life is town sexy bad boy Quaid O'fallon! Quaid quit the Coast Guard rescue job to come to help his family with the search of Mimi and to help with baby Bonnie. The last thing he expects is to find Cynthia! She was the girl that he had a crush on when he was a teenager and never had a chance. Now with all the complications on the landing and their paths crossing constantly the attraction of all those years have intensified. Fighting the bad guys and their attraction to each other is keeping them on the edge, and that's when things start heating up! The sexy scenes in this book are great, enough heat to keep them interesting and some are really funny! Dianne has crafted another story that has a little bit of everything! Humor, suspense, sexy characters and a secondary romance are all combined in this sexy romance that will keep you turning pages! It's really sad to see this series end with this book, but she did great to tie up all the previous books at the end. Great job Dianne! Keep those great books coming!!

Format: Paperback
Quaid O'Fallon is the bad boy of the family. Adopted by patriarch Rory O'Fallon when he was a troubled kid, Quaid has since grown into a responsible young man, yet inside still lurks the heart of that hurt little boy. Hearing his family is in trouble, he leaves his job with the Coast Guard to help those who have been there for him.

On his first night back, he runs into the woman he's never been able to forget - Cynthia (Landon) James. Snooty and several years older than him, Cynthia has always turned him on, despite thinking she's better than everyone else. Just as stubborn as ever, Cynthia refuses his assistance, but she's got her son Lawrence to think about, and sometimes you have to let go of your pride. Even when it's the only thing holding her back from running to Quaid O'Fallon's arms.

Together they try and solve a mystery involving Rory and his baby girl Bonnie while raising her amazing son and consoling friends going through their own relationship woes. Quaid proves to be the man Cynthia wants in her life, helping to raise her child, and Cynthia becomes the woman of Quaid's dreams. Now she just has to convince him that she really loves him, and doesn't just need him, and Quaid has to believe he's worthy of her love.

It's sad to say good-bye to the O'Fallon clan and their friends. This small town of Tennessee is a breath of fresh air, and the townspeople are loyal and quirky - definitely the kind of people you wished lived in a small town. Dianne Castell writes with lots of spunky humor and sass, and I found myself grinning and laughing out loud several times. Ms. Castell is an auto-buy for me.

Format: Paperback
The book we have been waiting for is finally here. The final book in the O'Fallon's trilogy is about to come out, which is great but at the same time I hate to see the end of the series.

Quaid O'Fallon, the street kid that Rory adopted and made his own had to come home to Fallons Landing when he found out there was trouble brewing around his father, new little sister Bonnie and the missing mother. Quaid had been in Alaska for years with the Coast Guard Search and Rescue, but family comes first and he has to help his family out so he quits his job and comes home. Cynthia Landon James has found her way home, with her eight year old son Lawrence, after a messy divorce where her ex-husband has taken everything - her fashion design business, bank accounts - leaving her with nothing to show for her successful years in New York. Things are not the way she remembers them and she cannot believe the way things have gone since she was away. Cynthia has sworn off all men, they are just bad karma for her. Quaid has never forgotten the one woman, who even in his younger years, had set his heart a pumping but who never gave him the time of day back then because of the difference in their social standing. Whenever these two get close to one another there is enough heat generated that it is like a spark to dry wood igniting a full fledge fire. There are problems to overcome, one being age difference, but Quaid is not going to let anything stand in his way this time around. Readers are in for a treat as we watch Quaid and Cynthia coming to terms with their respective demons. The secondary characters only heighten and add to the suspense as the race against time, to find Bonnie's mother before the ruthless people that are out to silence her do, is fast running out.
