MEMORIES by Anita Mills - 2 STARS**
World-weary Charlotte Winslow is forced by the death of her debt-ridden father to give up the only man she has ever loved, the dashing earl of Rexford. He quickly marries another, and Charlotte resigns herself to live out her days as a spinster on the rugged shore of the North Sea. When a terrible storm finds the still-handsome earl stranded at her tiny cottage fifteen years later, Charlotte is horrified to learn he barely remembers her. Now that she has him again, does she even want him? Can he convince her he never wants to leave?
I didn't hate this story, but in the end I just felt it failed miserably as a romance. Charlotte was a sweetheart, but I didn't like Rexford at all. While Charlotte pined away for him, he appeared to barely give her a second thought. Next thing you know his meddling mother is there, reveals some secrets, and he admits to falling in love with her during their one-time acquaintance. Simply not believable or romantic whatsoever. There was zero passion or chemistry, not even a single kiss. Overall it was too short, too rushed, and not recommended.
FLOWERS FROM THE SEA by Arnette Lamb - 4 STARS****
Lily Hamilton feels trapped in her father's home on the Scottish isle of Arran. Every year on Mothering Day, she secretly watches a stranger throw a bouquet of pink primroses off his small ship and sail away into the fog. Lily makes herself part of this solemn ritual by rescuing the flowers from the sea and arranging them on a solitary, mysterious grave atop the mighty mountain. When she finally meets this man, amidst warring clans and hidden deceits, their lives are enmeshed in events so intense and wondrous, you will never forget them.
This story takes place during the spring of 1680. While I really liked Lily who was bold and brave, I absolutely adored Hugh who was charismatic and utterly charming. As a couple these two had great chemistry, and I thought their romance was both sweet and passionate. I kind of figured where the ending was going but wondered how Ms. Lamb would pull it off. Although a bit predictable, she did sneak in a surprise that I wasn't expecting. Overall just a truly lovely and romantic read that I'd recommend if you have a couple of hours to spare.
INDIAN SUMMER by Rosanne Bittner - 4 STARS****
An ill-fated love triangle set in the 1880's is the basis for Rosanne Bittner's heartrendingly beautiful Indian Summer. When Margaret Gibbons, her stoic, missionary husband Edward, and their young daughter Evy, venture to a Cheyenne Indian reservation in Oklahoma, Margaret meets a proud and spiritual Cheyenne warrior called Wild Horse. She overcomes her fear of him as he teaches her to understand her deepest needs, and to search within herself to find her own truths. In a tragic twist of fate, she must face her greatest sorrows in order to find her greatest joys.
This is a short prequel to the novel 'Full Circle' and was my first time reading anything by Ms. Bittner. I'm hesitant to even call it a romance, as its definitely not your typical one and wasn't what I was expecting. However, it was well researched, vividly written, and filled with love and loss. It's a turbulent and heart wrenching read that literally had me bawling my eyes out near the end. It pushes the boundaries of adultery and does not contain the usual HEA you'd expect from a traditional romance. Still, I enjoyed learning about the Cheyenne and found it very engaging!
