Caleb has always been in love with Amber but his guilt in betraying her dad is the only thing preventing him from acting on it. Now in their mid twenties, Caleb and Amber have a second chance at love. Do they continue pretending they don't yearn for one another or give in to their desires and leave the past where it belongs-behind them?
Dance of Desire reminds me of watching the eight second bull rides-sit down, buckle up and hold on for the ride! Quirky dialogue, a sassy heroine (the best kind!) one tall, sexy as hell alpha cowboy and a zany cast of supporting characters with a definite love of gossip had me laughing out loud and I enjoyed every minute of this charming and steamy second chance romance!
A big THANK YOU to Lexi Blake for mentioning Christopher's name in a recent post -I have found a new author and a lovely backlist I can't wait to devour!
Dance of Desire is the tragic story of death, of how it changed the course of history, changed the promise of young love to something taboo; forbidden. Having to bury deep the burgeoning attraction they have only moments previously found for each other to become brother and sister has damned the promise of young loves fulfilment between family friends Amber and Caleb.
They are left angry, hurt and desperate. They are forced into a life never anticipated and must accept it now as normality. It seems to me, in their intention to honour Amber’s father in his decision to keep his friend’s teenage son safe, every moment of their lives from that point on was a futile dance of denial, and in that denial only obsession blossomed. What might under other circumstance have been relegated to little more than teenage hormones, - a first crush - through tragedy and longing became much, much more.
The story beneath Christopher’s pen, was a thing of beauty, his words flowing with empathy and feeling, his descriptive phases conjuring wonderful pictures in my mind, and the tragedy lightened with dashes of humour that had me laughing out loud even as my heart bleed for them.
Christopher Rice doesn’t just tell people’s stories he reveals their souls.
The air between Amber and Caleb vibrates with sizzling electricity. They fell in love at fifteen, before his parents deaths and the adoption into her family. Their back story will tear at your heartstrings and their reuniting will make your heart soar.
This is a story about enduring love, second chances, family and community. Its message will warm your soul.
Years ago, Caleb and Amber were on the road to experiencing all the joys young first love has to offer. But it wasn’t meant to be. Tragedy stuck young Caleb’s life and it changed the road both Caleb’s and Amber’s families were travelling on. Years passed and they both went in different directions. Making a life, careers, falling in love with other people, getting married, divorced…but neither ever able to douse the flame they each held for one another and the young love they once shared. Now, in a twist of fate, Caleb and Amber find themselves reunited in a precarious and sad situation. But together, nonetheless. This is exactly the second chance they had wanted for too many years to count. Would they be able to make the most of it and take the chance stolen from them?
From start to finish there was just so much to love about this novella. Christopher Rice writes some of the most memorable characters and hottest moments ever. Caleb and Amber fit into both of those categories. I loved this story of doomed young love and second chances. My heart broke for Amber and Caleb and I wanted nothing more than for them to get another shot at love. Their past is very involved and packed with so much emotion. It’s impossible not to shed more than a few tears when reading what they went through as young adults. Of course it was the past, which led them to where they are now…good, bad, and sometimes ugly.Read more ›
