This is one of the first Sandra Brown books I read, and find myself pulling it out to reread it again and again. It is a classic story.
All is going perfectly. Sloane is able to successfully deny her more sensual needs, and take pleasure in her growing business. Until an incredible guest shows up--a man who literally takes her breath away, fight it as she will. Carter turns out to be a best-selling author who needs a hideaway to escape his hectic life and meet the looming deadline for his next book. Sloane is viscerally attracted to him, but fiercely fights it down. Not only is she afraid of involvement, this man is strictly off limits. He is her best friend's fiance.
As the attraction between Sloane and Carter grows despite their best efforts, so does their guilt. Carter is not a lothario, but he is engaged for all the wrong reasons: his fiancee and her two small children have been left behind by the death of his best friend. Lending support and assistance, he found himself offering more. Now that he has met Sloane, he sees the error he has made, but it is too late. He feels he must honor his commitment.
Sloane, now desperately in love, feels the same, and it is almost unbearable. When the two finally make love, having lost their battle to stay apart, the reader is torn as well. Obviously, Sloane and Carter belong together, but is that fair?
The reader is kept on tenterhooks until almost the last page, and the ending is not predictable. This is a lovely romance, one with a conscience, and I recommend it highly.
Sloan, with her chilling vulnerability and a woman at heart attracts Carter like no other. Desperately she fights this magnetic attraction for this writer, refusing any form of betrayal. She feels protected and loved in the arms of Carter yet they have to keep their attractions at bay. Sloan is going to find that letting him go is not as easy anymore...
The moral dilemma is handled with professional narrative by Ms. Brown and she has created two memorable characters who decide their path of love together. Her stories are simple with stunning truths - that love is a healer and also cuts in both ways.
Ms. Brown is one gifted writer capable of producing savagely tender stories that grip the readers. Her passionate love scenes is done with exquisite poignancy and sizzling desires. It has no frills but sweeps the readers in a lulling mode with the simplicity. BREAKFAST IN BED is definitely a romance that will be etched in your heart with its cutting poignancy.
Sloan Fairchild is the owner of this elegant bed-and-breakfast inn, and it's called Fairchild House. Sloan focuses all her energy into Fairchild House and in a way Fairchild House is her sanctuary from the outside world, because in the outside world, Sloan has been hurt too many times and she's sort of hiding from it. Sloan promises her best friend, Alicia to let Alicia's fiancé live in Fairchild House for a month. It was a big mistake... because as soon as Sloan opened that door to let Carter Madison into that house, Alicia's fiancé, there was instant sexual tension.
Carter Madison came to Fairchild House, to work on the last chapter of his book. What he didn't expect was to feel the passion and desire for his fiancée's best friend.
Sloan and Carter try to ignore the mutual passion and desire, because of Alicia, but it's very hard. The time comes when Carter ahs to leave, to marry Alicia, but would Carter be able to leave and fulfill his wedding vows to Alicia?
I love this book because of the strong will power Carter and Sloan shows, to restrain themselves of their passion and desire. I think it's really magical and it's really good. I stayed up until very late to finish "Breakfast in Bed" and it was worth it.
