A man haunts the shadows of her mind and she sees him every day in the face of her son. He shattered her mind and body so long ago. And now he’s come back for her soul.
Daniel Hawthorne Baird II never played by the rules. Despite his English aristocratic background, he rebelled in the most destructive of ways in his youth. And it caused the one person to ever see into his heart to be lost to him forever.
But when he miraculously finds her again, she has no recollection of the time that they spent together and has a family of her own.
All of the others are of no consequence to him and he cares not who he has ruin to get what he wants. He's going to do everything in his power to possess her once again. Even if he has to burn down the entire world trying.
In the Land of Milk and Honey is a story unlike any other. It’s part suspense, part thrilling mystery and part page scorching romance!
With her debut, Nell E.S. Douglas proves herself to be an absolute master at marrying the unpredictable violence of love and hate together in a way that readers will feel in each and every cell. Her characters are finely nuanced and her story is just a little anarchic yet completely unforgettable.
And the result is a wildly addictive ride that you’ll want to experience over and over again…
“I was thinking I could lock the doors and hide you here, making you come into eternity, never to be seen by the world again. By no one, Gabrielle. I do not know how much longer I can pull softly.”
I enjoyed this very different book by a new-to-me author. The story is quite unique: Gabrielle has a 5 year old son but she has no memory of being pregnant or who the father might be. The mysterious Daniel Baird, who seems to enter her life quite suddenly, might or might not be the father. But Bree has no way of knowing for sure.
What she does know is that this powerful and aloof man works his way into her life and into her very close circle of life-long friends. She thought her life was well-ordered and perfect until Daniel appears. She owns her own design firm and lives happily in New York City.
"Twenty-five years. Twenty-five years of order and control. Discipline, responsibility; planned out and risk free. Except for the months I can’t remember, this describes my life."
But Daniel brings back unsettling memories. Is he Tristan's father? This book is at turns sexy, poignant, thrilling and funny. The author has an incredible talent for story-telling and I would love to read what she comes up with next.
"Although I’d never to my knowledge met Daniel Baird before this weekend in my life, I recognized that smile completely, wholly, and with every fiber of my being. It was the face of my son."
This is a long and juicy read, and the cast of supporting characters could have each had their own novella! They are all fiercely protective of Bree and Tristan and I honestly did not know whether to not Daniel had good intentions towards this woman and her young son.
“You really don’t remember me, do you?” Daniel whispered into my ear. I spun, mouth agape, and we practically touched noses.
The last part of the book gives the reader insight into what really happened to Bree all those years ago. This book rambled a bit in some parts and could use a healthy does of editing but the story and the characters kept be reading well into the night. 'In the Land of Milk of Honey' is a refreshing breath of fresh air in the romance genre and for you ardent fans of 'Twilight', this story began its life as a fan fiction. But it stands on its own as a enthralling and sexy romance with a mystery at its core.
"You have given me a pass yet, still, I am here. I wrap my hands around a vulnerable stem that doesn’t bend to me, of singular purpose. Still on my aim. I come always to you.”
That was this story. I made myself slow down and even started chapters over just so I could soak it all in. This book hooked me from the first paragraph.
Gabrielle (Bree) was a college student in NYc studying to be a CPA. One night changed everything for her but she's also missing a chunk of time. She wakes up in a hospital and finds out she's 5 months pregnant. Surrounded by friends that have become family she raised her newborn baby and makes something of herself.
5 years later she runs into Daniel. She feels like she's met him somewhere before but can't place it. Will she discover how she knows him? Will she finally recall the missing time in her life and how she came to be?
This story gave me hope, anger, sadness, disbelief and above all else love.
I'll say no more otherwise I'll just tell you the story. I implore you to read this book. I absolutely loved it and fear now I will be in a book hangover for quite some time.

When it was first posted, it was hard to believe that the author could come up with a conclusion that would live up to the early plot's promise. It now appears that the author just threw something together at the last minute to capitalize on her enthusiasts' desire for closure.
