Overview

Like to laugh one minute and cry the next? Book 2 of the Art Of Love series is the right romance for you.

At 34, Michael Larson has made himself into a good man, even if he is still far from being a perfect one. He considers himself at least reformed of his previously bad dating habits. Unfortunately, Carrie Addison, the future mother of his child and the woman he loves madly, doesn't agree with that assessment. The challenge he faces is how to keep Carrie in life until he finds a way to change her mind.

Despite advice from his meddling family about hanging on to a woman looking to escape him, Michael pressures Carrie into a marriage of convenience. Her indecision about him and the baby is heart wrenching, but Michael won't let even her doubts stop him. He can't bear the thought of losing her now that he finally has her in his arms at last.

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

This is a family full of passion--they laugh, they fight, they cry on each other's shoulders, but at the end of the day it's very apparent that they above all else love each other deeply. I really enjoyed Created in Fire by Donna McDonald--it was a fun, quirky, and fiery read.

Created in Fire is an emotional roller coaster, with the highs and lows of any good relationship. Add a couple of crazy families and you have the makings of a delightful romantic read.

I loved this book, this series and this crazy and passionate family. Created in Fire is the second book in the Art of Love series and revolves around Michael and Carrie.  Michael is an abstract artist and has been in love with Carrie for years but has had to stand back and watch her get married ......... twice, and then watch her get engaged to another man after that. Carrie on the other hand has deep-seated issues with Michael which relates to their past history.  She is trying to deal with it, but even so, there were times when I wanted to shake her and get her to either listen to reason or at the very least discuss the problems she has with him.  But she is so stubborn and does not talk about her fears or her feeling and half the time he has to guess what she needs and has to act on his instincts more than is healthy in a relationship. But he perseveres, and manages to get what he wants and what he feels she wants and needs too LOL. All the Larson men, not just Michael, are extremely charismatic and have strong ethics, but they are all driven by their passions to such an extent that their partners are sometimes overwhelmed by the sheer enormity of it all. Don't get me wrong, the women they love are all passionate, strong and demanding in their own right, but these men take their passions to a whole new level, sweeping everyone along with them.  They will do absolutely anything for the women they love, and I do mean anything - they love with every fibre of their being. I loved that the characters from Carved in Stone are also prominent in this book - it is great to see how they are doing and the interaction between the entire family is a lot of fun to read. I really enjoy the author's writing style, the pace is fast and held my attention until the last page. I highly recommend this book and this series - I LOVED it, it is a really GREAT read.

I love this author ...but this is the 8th novel of hers that I have read and this is the only one that left me disappointed. The characters in Created In Fire were sub-par for her norm.  They were anxiety ridden and game players ...definitely lacking in the realism normally portrayed in her other works. Rarely has an author created characters that I would enjoy being friends with (Never Too Late series) ... Donna McDonald has done this with most of her characters. I'm keeping hope alive that this was a glitch and that her forthcoming books in this series reconnect with her former abilities to create characters (particularly the women)  with strength, honor and confidence. I find there is nothing worse than being reminded of the ridiculous behaviors or anxiety ridden people.  That said ...thank you Donna for the previous 7 novels that gave me a joy and gratitude for an author who can created with pen the kind of people/characters that I admire. Namaste!

I enjoyed this installment of the Art of Love series. I don't think it is quite as good and as one and three but still good. The characters, with tight family connections, are interesting and flawed like all of us are but trying to live their lives filled with love and devoted to the arts that draw them. Wonderful romances.

Such a cute story.  I'm so glad I found this series.  It's a quick read with a great hero.  I honestly struggled with liking the heroine and trying to see what the attraction was for him.  But I ended up giving her the benefit of the doubt, since he seemed to love her so much.  It had some really touching scenes that I thought about long afterward.  I recommend it happily.
