California Caress - a Review
California Caress written by Rebecca Sinclair, is a western historical romance. Full of laughs, heartbreak, treachery, and unbridled passion, this story takes place during the time when people are flocking out west to pan for gold.
Hope Bennett and Duke Frazier, a gunslinger known for his talent at winning, are the two main characters. Hope is on a mission, and Duke is on a mission. Hope wants to save the life of her brother, and Duke wants to get back what is rightfully his.
Hope seeks out Duke to ask for his services. She is nervous about encountering this gunslinger and asking him to risk his life to save the life of her brother, so when she stumbles into his room, she is drunk. He agrees to take on the job, but Hope isnít quite so fond of what he expects for payment. She promises to deliver but has no intention of doing so.
She does not want to be involved in a relationship; she believes that no man could ever love her. Why? She has scars. She believes that these make her unattractive and in no way desirable to any man.
After Drake has saved her brother, Hope simply goes back home and plans to avoid meeting with this man. Not to be done out of what he was promised, he comes to her house with every intention of collecting what she vowed to give him. And this is just the beginning.
Hope wants to hate this man but finds herself strangely drawn to him. And, of course, he is drawn to her. This story shows just how important open communication is between people. Secrets can hurt, or even destroy, a relationship.
My favorite line in this book has so much truth in it: Painful things are going to happen. You canít stop them, but you can control the way they affect you.
I am normally not a fan of romance novels, but this one kept my attention from beginning to end. This story is full of twists, turns, and truths learned by the heroine that could apply to any life . The book is an awesome and entertaining read, but the intense passion may not be appropriate for young readers. I believe this a book better suited for adults.
I was sent this book free of charge by the publisher in exchange for an open and honest review. If you would like a copy of California Caress to add to your collection of books, I have provided an Amazon link below. The first link is for a hard copy, and the second link is for a Kindle copy.
