This romance suspense novel is a fascinating read. Mrs. Cooper weaves a
passionate story of love renewal for self-reliant women trying to heal
from past heartaches. She reminds us that past love choices don't have
to color your confidence in your own 'happily ever after'. Dallas
Marcel is a beautiful, intelligent, independent, investment manager that
refuses to believe she's capable of finding a love that won't suffocate
her career goals. It's an opinion many women embrace after an agonizing
end of a damaging relationship. Some people believe `time heals all
wounds' but Mrs. Cooper shows readers some cases call for the right man
to restore what was broken. Tyler Hollister is everything a woman could
ask for; he's tall, handsome, witty, wealthy, and intelligent. He could
have any woman in the world but his heart is set on Dallas. No matter
how many times they argue or have misunderstandings, he's her constant
--there when she needs him the most...loving her pass her pain. You'll
enjoy the dialogue, characters, and locale favor of Chicago and
Milwaukee in 'Blue Roses'. (I personally can't wait to visit Milwaukee
next year and see the city for myself.) The minor characters will have
you looking forward to the sequential novels in the Reunited Series. I'm
rooting for Quinn Hamilton's story to be told next. His love for Alandra
was too strong to ignore the possibility that she could be nearby. But
then again, Dallas' little sister Harmony Marcel is due for some
happiness after being manipulated by cruel, cold-blooded con man. 'Blue
Roses' will have you wondering if good-looking men will arduously pursue
women that build 12-foot walls with barbed wire around their hearts. The
answer is yes, but as Mrs. Cooper reveals, you must eventually trust a
possible mate with your emotional scars. Dallas and Tyler face a
ruthless plot to destroy Dallas' career in this novel, while dealing
with their strong passionate connection. It becomes a real page turner
once she returns to Chicago, so be ready to DVR any television shows
once you get to chapter thirteen. Purchase 'Blue Roses' and be riveted
by the characters, intrigue, and passion Mrs. Cooper delivers. Dallas
and Tyler have great chemistry and a foundation of friendship that made
their love story so believable. Angeline M. Bishop Author of North Star

A blue rose is breathtakingly beautiful, unmistakably noticeable, and powerfully intriguing. That also describes Dallas Marcel, the main character of the novel “Blue Roses.” She’s beautiful, noticeable and intriguing. But she’s also annoyingly stubborn and independent to a fault. But she has a very good reason to be that way. Tyler Hollister is her knight in shining armor, the man that rescues her after a horrific tragedy that author Sharon C. Cooper hits you with in the first few pages. But Tyler is also her nemesis in a way because Dallas has a powerful sexual and emotional attraction to him despite the fact that she’s afraid to enter a serious relationship. If you want to know why she’s afraid, you’ll have to read deeper into the novel.
The theme that jumps out at me throughout the book is the complexity of a romance. Dallas and Tyler have love for each other. But the timing isn’t right. They are attracted to each other. But past issues are in the way. So many odds are stacked against them: sultry distractors, shady acquaintances, painful memories. And oh yes, danger is in the air as well. Time will tell if Dallas and Tyler can beat the odds.
Sharon C. Cooper weaved a truly interesting tale and I look forward to reading more of her work.
