Overview

Don't believe in love at first sight? The Larson romance in Book 3 will change your mind.

Dumped by her fiancee in the middle of a tragic family crisis, Reesa Callahan readily admits she is jaded about love. No matter how sexy and nice, unless the man in her life is a home contractor, a plumber, or a potential employer, he can serve only one useful purpose to her. And even then, one night is all she can offer. She told Shane Larson that the night they met. Why can't the stubborn man accept her limited reality and just leave her alone?

Graphic novelist Shane Larson's focus is on his next book release. When that is finished, he plans to complete his doctorate. Just like he told his nagging father and gloating brother, he had definitely not been looking for a serious relationship when a one-night stand ended up being the woman of his dreams. Weeks later he's almost given up hope when helping a friend accidentally leads him to the mysterious "Anne's" front door. Rather than it being the end of his search, he finds not only the woman he wants but a whole family. Being in love with the right woman is just as wonderful as his father predicted, but does he have what it takes to love them all?

About the Art Of Love series

The series begins with the stories of the three Larson men. Books 1-3 cover the romances of Will Larson and his two adult sons, Michael and Shane. Each hero in this series is an artist. Each heroine in the series is bit damaged. Sometimes the stories get a little too real when complicated family relationships make dating, romance, and love even more challenging. This romantic comedy series is very humorous, but also emotionally charged. Books 4 and 5 carry on this tradition with extended family members.

Book 1 Carved In Stone (free in ebook)
Book 2 Created In Fire
Book 3 Captured In Ink
Book 4 Commissioned In White
Book 5 Covered In Paint

The third installment in the Art of Love series, Captured in Ink is by far my favorite of the three stories. If you love passion with a dose of reality and a side of tenderness, then Captured in Ink by Donna McDonald should be first on your to-be-read list!

Ms. McDonald skillfully creates an environment that's so realistic through the personas of her characters, their dialogue, their thoughts, appearances, feelings. The passion is tightly woven together as an artisan weaves silk and is smoothly conveyed by Ms. McDonald. A reader senses the power of compassion and gratitude throughout the entire book. If a reader can not relate to this heartwarming and sensuous love story my heart aches for them. I loved this book! ~ A Recommended Read by Naunet!

I love this entire series. It's about time we had novels about women our age instead of the 22 yr olds! The characters are rich and multi-layered and she really explores the psychology of their life choices and challenges. Though I love the entire series, this one might be my favorite--but her web site says there is more to come. I can't wait! You'll keep meeting characters from the earlier stories, so it's better to read them in order.
