Discover the magic of Whisper Lake in Whisper of Temptation.
Oh, my word. I absolutely adore this story because it is filled with so much warmth, love, adoration, smart and caring characters, people who are mature in their emotions, no petty fights or insecurities, just raw feelings, growing pains, and such swoon-worthy romance that it swept me off my feet, as well.
Sara Kellan and Austin Stone are meant to be together, even the history of their families proves it. And I loved that it doesn't take but a minute for themselves to realize that as well.
Sara is a dedicated mother, she is smart, caring, and hard-working, she loves what she does, and taking care of others comes naturally for her. The fact that she can be honest about her ex, appreciate him for the man and father he is, and admit both of their shortcomings when it came to that particular relationship, just made me love her even more. And there is a talk towards the end that Sara has with her ex, that proves she was right to give him the credit to be a good guy. That single conversation was one of the highlights for me as it showed the emotional intelligence and maturity of all the characters at the Whisper Lake.
And Austin is the perfect and equal match to Sara in all the ways possible. "I'll drive" will never again have the same meaning to me, I swear. Austin's willingness to jump right into the relationship, to recognize the pearl of a person Sara is, and to make sure they make a team, a solid unit, with the kids and Sara, just melted my heart.
Yes, you can feel the magic of falling in love, you can feel the spellbinding days of summer heat, the lure of being disconnected while on vacation, and the daring bravery it somehow often manifest. But there was so much more than that, from child-rearing and entertaining to dealing with the past and finding and making the kind of friends that last a lifetime, to the vibes of a small town living, and learning to compromise, to trust, to appreciate, to take care of your mate, and to love fully, completely, and abundantly.
The storyline might be the most explosively in-depth insta-love filled with fairytale kind of swoon-worthy, adorable moments, but it hits directly to the heart and mind, and there is no doubt it will give you the warm, kind, sweet, passionate feels like only the best romance novels deliver.
