Welcome to Union. Population: 994 Town motto: Where no secret goes untold. His father’s death forces Dr. Ryan Williams to return to the home—and the woman—he’d left behind ten years earlier. Ryan knows it’s best to avoid Union sweetheart and police officer Emily Winters during his visit. But how? Stuck in this small town, fighting an attraction that hasn’t diminished over time, the sparks are unavoidable—and so are the rumors. The same rumors that made him leave Union in the first place…Experience taught Emily to keep her guard—and her panties—up. Until Ryan returns as suddenly as he left, tempting her with promises she already knows he can’t keep. Or so she thinks. This new adult Ryan is one capable of forever and, God-willing, forgiveness. Because even as they learn to trust and love each other again, Emily knows once she reveals her secret, heartbreak is inevitable.
No Sweeter Love was one of those stories I couldn’t stop reading until the last page, and it didn’t feel like a chore. It was fast paced, laugh-out-loud funny at times, tear jerking and everything you want in a romance.
Emily has a dark secret which adds to her suffering. I really felt for her from the moment she stepped onto the page and admired her strength and humour.
Ryan is the hottest doctor ever. Why don’t they have GP’s like this in real life? Or do they, and I’m registered with the wrong practice? As he struggles to come to terms with his feelings over his father, and futilely fights an attraction for Emily he thought he’d buried long ago, I completely fell head over heels for him.
Great stuff. Truly. I’ll be keeping my eye out for more by Tina Vaughn.
