Summer is for Lovers
His heart is unavailable. Luckily, her interest lies in the rest of him . . .
Though she was just a girl when they first met, Caroline Tolbertson's infatuation with David Cameron remains undimmed. Now fate has brought the handsome Scotsman back to Brighton for what promises to be an unforgettable summer. Soon, Caroline will have to choose a husband, but for now she is free to indulge her curiosity in things of a passionate nature.
That is, if David will agree to teach her.
Past mistakes have convinced David he'll make a terrible husband, though he'll gladly help the unconventional Caroline find a suitor. Unfortunately, she has something more scandalous in mind. As the contenders for her hand begin to line up, her future seems assured . . . provided David can do the honorable thing and let them have her.
When a spirited young woman is determined to break Society's rules, all a gentleman can do is lend a hand . . . or more.
I love a heroine that is less than perfect. A character who can find her happily ever after without having the drop dead gorgeous looks and the “I can dish out sassy comebacks” personality. Now, not saying that Caroline was totally meek, but she was a wallflower who bloomed when she was in her element: water. Her secret, was swimming every day and the fact that no one knew why her shoulders were large and muscular was just plain ignorant. But then again, ladies aren’t supposed to do those types of things.
Our hero David, has the usual demons that might plague a romance hero. A guilty conscience that hinders his relationships with women. He was introduced in the previous book as a rake. He totally redeems himself in this story.
David’s and Caroline’s love story is a bit amusing in some parts. Let’s just say they bring the best out of each other. It’s mostly David’s stubbornness and inability to commit that hinders their relationship. I loved the dialogue and with the beachy, summery scenes, this makes the perfect beach read. It flows quickly and is more of a lighthearted read than the previous book was. There was no suspense. Which might be what I was missing with this read.
Overall, I’m still invested in the series and can’t wait to read about Patrick’s story. These stories can be read as standalone, but to fully understand and enjoy the characters, I would start from the beginning.
