Reviewer: Jane Daly
If you are a hopeless romantic, like I am, you'll thoroughly enjoy this collection of happily-ever-after stories. Each novella stands alone, but I can guarantee you won't be able to stop reading after the first one, Love on a Dare. The characters and setting of each book are diverse, interesting, and well-developed. Every story gave me a sigh of contentment at the end, when true love conquers all challenges. The faith element runs through the collection, reminding the reader of God's sovereignty.
Love on a Dare begins with Alana Mulvaney, and her devotion to the family restaurant. She has no time for romance, and when the boy next door, Donovan O'Reilly returns to town, sparks fly, but not the romantic kind. Alana wants to keep Donovan at arm's length, but her sisters have other plans. They want Alana to be happy. Thank God for loving sisters, who know Donovan and Alana are meant to be together.
