When I started "Courageous Dare" I didn't know what to expect. When the heroine did something very bold, I was taken aback a little, surprised by her rashness. But it wasn't long before I realized she was compelled by a chemistry that wouldn't be denied. Baylee and Nash were destined to come together in love and passion. But that was just the beginning. While they pack every bit of love and togetherness into the seven weeks they have before he goes back into war, I was totally charmed by them and the supporting cast of family members won my heart as well, especially her twin brother, Ethan. Though I had no idea what to expect I felt uneasiness growing as I picked up on the tension in the book. I have to stop there to avoid spoilers. This moving story will make you cry and laugh. The writing was wonderful and the characters as real as the folks who live down the road. The love scenes were scorching, too! I loved "Courageous Dare" and look forward to reading more from Ms. Nation.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Ms. Nation is fabulous when it comes to instantly hooking a reader from the very beginning, and knows how to draw out the right amount of emotion along the way. I'm not sure I've cried this much over a book in my life, but it was well worth the read. This book begins as a fairytale, with tragedy along the way, and has a bittersweet HEA in the end.
