Where you can find A Fair of the Heart: Amazon
Publisher: Donna Marie Rogers
Date of publication: June 29, 2011
A hometown series full of sexy romance, humor, and heart…
Single mother, and work-at-home hair stylist, Lauren Frazier can barely keep the roof over her head from falling down around her. When handyman Caleb Hunter shows up at her door for a haircut, the military veteran is the answer to her prayers—and the attraction is instantaneous. Too bad her troubled ten-year-old son isn’t quite as thrilled to have Caleb hanging around.
Old wounds have kept Caleb from returning to Redemption permanently. When he receives word of his mother’s unexpected death, guilt and regret bring him home again, but will the love of a good woman keep him there? Beautiful, witty, and strong, Lauren excites him like no woman ever has, but she’s a package deal, and he’s not sure he’s prepared to take on a ready-made family.
A Fair of the Heart is a perfect book for the beach or a day by the pool. Perfect in that it is a quick read. Hell, I got through it in about 2 hours. That is a record these days for me (almost no time to read).
It was a good bit of fluff too. It had it all: troubled kid (actually tween), a woman whose husband left her and the adorable toddler. And instant chemistry!!! So it is safe to say that no, this is not a “G” or even a “PG” rated romance novel. I would give it an “R” rating.
So, will I reread this book and will I recommend it to family and friends, yes, I will.
