Book Description

The last thing she needs right now is a man . . .

Lindsey Brooks had it all—an awesome job doling out advice to the lovelorn, a fabulous high-rise apartment, and a to-die-for fiancé. But then she got dumped—wearing nothing but a "Kiss the Cook" apron—and desperate to escape, she retreats to a tiny Montana town to reclaim a family treasure. She never dreamed anyone would try to stop her—or that he'd be sexy as sin.

Too bad she finds such a hot one . . .

Rob Colter isn't into relationships—but Lindsey sees Rob as the perfect guy to help her "get back on the horse." The sex horse, that is. Unfortunately, he comes complete with a mysterious past, which gets even more mysterious when she finds his passionate letters to another woman—whose name happens to be tattooed on his chest.

And too bad he has so many secrets . . .

Now Rob's dangerous past is about to catch up with them both. And if that's not horrible enough, Lindsey is falling for him—hard. For a girl who usually has all the answers, Lindsey is up to her neck in trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, sexy romance May 27, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A disastrous break-up headlining the scandal sheets sends Lindsey Brooks heading for cover in the most unlikely of places for a chic woman about town such as herself - the small town of Moose Falls nestled in Montana. All she is looking for is a little peace and quiet far away from the hustle and bustle of Chicago and its busy paparazzi and the chance to reconnect with her late aunt through her home town. She certainly never expected this sedate little town and its denizens to launch a soul searching journey of self that leads her to some rather surprising revelations about her life in Chicago and her future.

Of course, the hunky recluse Rob Colter has more than a little to do with that... Antisocial doesn't even begin to describe the man who now owns her aunt's home and canoe rental business. But a man's secrets sometimes demand he keep to himself, and Rob's secrets have the power to destroy the home he has found in Moose Falls.

But as Rob and Lindsey spend more and more time together, neither can deny the intense attraction that threatens to develop into something much more lasting than a mere fling. And it is just that kind of attachment that can endanger everything that Rob has.

What can I say? With each new release, Toni Blake's writing talent impresses me more and more. Letters to a Secret Lover is the latest release from her, and it can only build both her reputation and her fan base. With a story as inspiring as it is sexy, she has crafted a romance that will have you dabbing your eyes with a tissue one moment, and squirming in your seat the next!

Both Lindsey and Rob go through intense personal journeys in this book, both separately and together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great from Toni Blake! June 22, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I cannot say enough good things about this book, I absolutely love it! Toni Blake has written another great read with LETTERS TO A SECRET LOVER. The plot is great, the town and its inhabitants are well-developed, and the chemistry between the hero and heroine is so good it is combustable. Like all of Toni Blake's books you can expect a story filled with humor and hot sex scenes.

After an embarassing encounter with her fiance and a window washer, Lindsay Brooks decides to get away from the gossip. Suddenly single and questioning her qualifications as a relationship columnist she runs to Moose Falls, Montana where she spent a summer years ago with her Aunt Millie. She hopes to buy back her Aunt's canoe livery, which is now owned by the sexy flannel-wearing recluse Rob Colter.

Rob Colter had his own reason for moving to Moose Falls, and his own reasons for being a recluse. Lindsay wants to get to know her Aunt Millie by experiencing the things she loved and Rob relucantly agrees to help. Slowly Lindsay is able to penetrate his tough exterior and gains confidence in herself as well.

As city girl Lindsay exchanges her Jimmy Choos for Keds and Rob learns to let people into his life, there is a secret from Rob's past that may threaten it all.

LETTERS TO A SECRET LOVER has it all; romance, humor, and mystery. If you like contemporary romances this is definitely one to pick up! Hope Toni Blake bring us back to Moose Falls in future books.

5.0 out of 5 stars a wonderful book May 27, 2008
By Judy
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Toni Blake's ability to weave an emotional charged story really shines in Letters To A Secret Lover.

Lindsey Brooks has written a successful Love Letter column for years in Chicago. When her own engagement blows up in her face, she retreats to Montana to try to buy back her great Aunt's business. Her first night in town is memorable for she drinks a tad bit to much and who comes to her rescue but Rob Colter. Rob is only the man she needs to buy the business from. According to the town gossip Rob is the town loner and Lindsey will have her work cut out for her getting on Rob's sweet side.

Rob Colter settled in Moose Falls Montana several years ago. He likes his quiet life and the niche he has made in the community. Rob's attempts to ignore Lindsey are hard fought. When she pleads to learn more about her aunt's life Rob agrees to show her around.

Rob and Lindsey's relationship changes from adversaries to lovers. Lindsey comes to realize that what she had with Garrett her ex is nothing compared to what she feels for Rob. But Rob is keeping a terrible secret that he is afraid will change everything if Lindsey or the town finds out.

Letters To A Secret Lover is an poignant journey of love and discovery. Rob and Lindsey aren't picture perfect characters. They have flaws like real people and this makes you really feel their sorrow and joy. Each page will make you fall in love with them as they do. This book should be on every romance readers list of books to get. You will not be sorry. Kudos Toni Blake.

Toni Blake can sure write romances that are borderline erotic, but still have a great plot, some laughs and her heroes are oh so incredible! She has done it again with Letters to a Secret Lover and is one of Avon's great, not to be missed authors
Lindsey Brooks' fiancé dumps her after a seduction attempt where she was only wearing in high heel stilettos and an apron. She decides to go lick her wounds in a small town her Aunt Millie has lived. Lindsey feels guilty because she lost touch with Millie, who, last summer before she died, wanted to will Lindsey her old canoe livery; where people can rent canoes to take out on the lake. But Lindsey was too busy with her engagement and writing an on-line blog and syndicated advice column called "Love Letters", so she forgot to respond. Now she has come to Moose Falls to see if she can buy the livery back and figure out what went wrong with her love life.
The owner of the livery, Rob Coulter, is a hermit. Lindsey is not one to give up, and since she drove all this way to the middle of nowhere, she is not leaving until she talks to Mister Mysterious. When Lindsey finally meets Rob, things don't go that well at all because Rob is rude and a bit mean. Even though she thinks he is one hot man who wears flannel very well, she will try figure out a way to get on his good side.
Rob just wants to be left alone. Not even this city girl who seems a bit flaky, but very cute, will convince him otherwise. But, Lindsey is Millie's niece and Millie helped him through so much. So, he decides to allow Lindsey to walk in Millie's shoes, so to speak. As things progress between the two, Rob begins to enjoy having Lindsey around more and more.
