On top of this, the (scumbag) mayor wants to acquire her land, kick her out her home and out of a job her family has done for generations. He wants those tourist dollars, and apparently a lighthouse in the a$$ end of beyond (a 3 hour drive from anywhere) will bring 'em flocking, and he's willing to stoop to any low, legal or otherwise, to obtain it. But Sandrine Crossman was in the coast guard, she's paid those tough-girl dues and she ain't the kind who backs down!
Now you may be thinking Charles (that's the name she gives amnesia dude 'cause he can't remember his) is that little birdie with the broken wing and some Florence Nightingale mess ensues. That's what I thought was going to happen. Wrong. Look, it's raining like a b**ch, her power's out, her food's rotting in the fridge, she can't flush her toilet, the mayor is on her jock and now this guy just washed up! All Sandrine wants to do is what she always does with the svelte, good-smelling studs who come flopping onto her beach, which is to dump him in a hospital and get on with her solitary life, reading lovey-dovey e-mails from this pen-pal who may be a girl! I mean it's the internet, people lie! And this guy, Charles? Sandrine's too cool to think like me, but this guy? If it were me, there were times I'd be wishing I just left his a$$ in the water.
I'm not telling you what happens! But I will tell you it doesn't go how you think it'll go...Until Vicky Holt lets you think how it's going to go. Then you'll spend the rest of the time enjoying the characters, their rapport and chemistry and stuff, *knowing* what's going to happen, but you don't know *how* the things you know are going to happen actually happen, or when they're gonna happen. See? You see it coming from miles though, but that's par for the course here, and rather comforting if you ask me.
It's short, sweet--and clean, no graphic sex or thrusts or... you get what I'm saying. Sandrine is cute, Charles is cool (most of the time). Once the things you know are going to happen do happen, Mrs. Holt wraps it up a abruptly--gave me a bit of a jolt, 'cause I was cruising and then...its over? I had to yank a star for that, sorry, but it's not like the romance isn't satisfying, it is. The story is flames. Ended a little fast for me, which says something. I wanted more of this tale.
I've read some things by Vicky Holt before, I've enjoyed every one. I think you'll enjoy it too.
Sandrine backstory really stuck out for me. After all the heartbreak she suffered I was surprised she wasn’t more jaded. She seemed to be a self aware person, a fact which I love. At first I wasn’t to sure about her personality but once I really got in to the story she grew on me and I felt compassion for her and her past.
And Charles was super cute as a water logged rescuee. He wanted to protect her but at the same time didn’t want to make her think she wasn’t capable. The fact that he even took that into consideration gave him a depth and attractiveness that appealed to me. I also liked how he was able to anticipate her wants and needs. He waited for her to come to terms with her feelings before moving forward. And he wasn’t afraid to show his displeasure about something. All great characteristics I admire in a partner. So yeah, you could say I liked him. 🙂
I mean the whole story was pretty creative. Not that I expected any less from Miss Holt. She has a gift for writing, truly. I’ve read almost all her works and I don’t plan on missing any if I can help it.
It's an angry sea but there is no doubt
That the lighthouse will keep shining in the night
To warn the lonely sailor.”
Deanta- “Ready for the Storm”
Taking place in the world of Heartland Cove, first visited in Vicky Holt’s, Happily Ever Kissed, Beckoned is a new tale of stormy seas, lost memories and love finally found.
Sandrine is a lighthouse keeper, the last of her kind, and while caught in a battle to save and maintain her family home, one late evening she rescues a man from her rocky, storm-stuck shores, who though struck by amnesia offers her the support and friendship Sandrine did not know she needed or wanted.
The characters of Beckoned are well-developed and engaging. Sandrine is admirable and strong, smart and sassy, and willing to do hard work to maintain all that she loves. Charles has a jump-in and get it done sort of attitude as well, but I can't say much more as his revelations are a huge part of this enchanting plot line.
Beckoned is a well-paced story, filled with action, and blossoming love, and its unfolding is like watching the sunrise on the shoreline...magical.
