Even though she is a RN, she has produced some of the best romances I have ever read.  She has this beautiful way of bringing the intensity to a situation that just can not be explained.  Although she has written a lot of Harlequin romances, she has also written quite a few other novels.  I can not give her enough credit to her writing.    She brings to life the luring, seductive writing without all the graphics.  Please take the time to pick up one, two, or three of her books.  Check out her website to see a full listing.

The thrill begins at a masquerade ball in Bear Creek, Alaska, where Don Juan has heated desires for Ms. Klondike Kate.  They escape not only from the party, but also from reality as they take this to a fantasy that is needed by both, until Don Juan gets Klondike Kate’s phone number and realizes who it really is.
In reality Klondike Kate is  Maggie Scotfield, recently divorced.  After being told she was boring she was looking to prove herself that she was exciting.  Visiting her home town her friends encourage the flaunt Klondike Kate costume to help her find some excitement.  She instantly feels the heat  when Don Juan looks at her in the most alluring way.
Don Juan, the real Caleb Greenleaf, and step brother to Meggie’s ex, is blinded by the mask.  Hansom, rich, and avoiding women’s advances, only because he was the last eligible bachelor of Bear Creek.  His past haunted him because he had been in love with his half brothers ex since they were kids.  Klondike Kate was the first woman he had really been attracted to in so long that he had to act on it.  With masks they could let everything go and enjoy each other.

Now that he knows who she is, and she doesn’t have a clue, Caleb continues the charade so that he can find out if she feels this way about Don Jaun, or about his true nature as Caleb.

Who actually gets the girl?  The make believe Don Jaun, or Caleb.

Actually I was turned off a little by the Harlequin romance novels, because they were based on hot sex scenes and a story line that fit in between, but this one… wow… it was good.  It built suspense, burning to continue, and in the end a true love story.  I found it light and airy and couldn’t put it down until the very end.

After reading this one I couldn’t wait to get my hands on more of Lori’s books

Addicted to Love

I love the way Lori Wilde writes.  She builds up the situation, lets it linger, gives it to you, and still gives you a story and a terrific ending.  Rachael has a horrible outlook on Romance.  Growing up in Valentine Texas where everything surrounds romance she has been brought up romancing the idea of love and what a man can do for her.  The problem happens when she is jilted at the altar, which causes her to swear off romance and wants to take everyone that is delusional with her.  The rampage starts with defacing the towns billboard.
Broady, the towns Sheriff is there to arrest her, comfort her, watch her grow, and in the end will he trust her with his heart?

This hits home for a lot of people who have been fooled by romance.  The illusion of someone sweet up front, but is that who they really are?
But the attraction and being true to ones self could pay off.

See how this story unravels the confusion of love and romance.
