Overview


OTHERWISE ENGAGED?

Indulgences never suited no-nonsense Amy Chapman. Practical and pragmatic, she'd loyally quelled her secret crush on rugged Nick Culhane—her sister's fiancé. And rightly so, since Nick mysteriously broke the engagement and enraged Amy's entire family. Amy had heard he'd found another woman…

…and that other woman was Amy! Nick was back in town and still, ten years later, traitorous heat simmered between them, until being in Nick's muscular arms seemed as necessary as breathing. Nick hadn't been prepared for how truly lovely his doe-eyed beauty had become. Yet how dare Amy, the dutiful Chapman daughter, love the one man her family would never forgive?

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Very highly recommended

Amy finds herself drawn to the one man that she's expected to disdain. Her whole family had been crazy about Nick, and when he ended his engagement to her sister Paige only a month before the ceremony, they all felt betrayed. Her parents had welcomed him to their home, and treated him as a son. Now they believe that he'd embarrassed their daughter, broken her heart, and made her the object of speculation and pity. The years have not brought about forgiveness.

She's always been a disappointment to her family, frequently being admonished to be practical, to be sensible, which always really meant whatever opinion that she had just voiced was outrageous and unworthy of further discussion. Further, as Nick reminds her, Amy's family doesn't hesitate to take advantage of her time and skills, expecting her drop her own plans at the last minute if they need a babysitter, spend the day running their errands, or care for grandma because no one else has the time. So when Amy goes along with grandma's idea for the house, renovation rather than moving her into a care facility, and then hires Nick to be the contractor, her family is outraged.

Nick had a good reason for breaking up with Paige all those years ago. Now he finds himself irresistibly drawn to Amy, even though he knows her family won't accept him. He doesn't want to cause her pain or embarrassment, but curiosity had driven him to seek her out, and old memories have lured him to take the work that guarantees he see her every day. He'd never been able to get the girl out of his head, and now she'd become the woman he knew she could be.

Amy's self doubt by no means creates a weak character. Rather than giving into her fear, she rises above it. Like her funny, tough grandmother, Amy becomes a woman filled with determination and strength, yet vulnerable enough to remain believable. Christine Flynn writes with a passion and grace that draws the reader deeply within her tale, and I look forward to reading more from this talented author's pen. Very highly recommended.

    Starsky's story Chapter Three

    Starkit plopped down and cryed onto her paws for what seemed like forever to her. Suddenly, a rustling disturbed her. She immediatly jumped up and looked in the direction of the sound, prepared for anything. What stepped cautiously out was a cat. A white she-cat with yellow tiger stripes. She looked at Starkit with yellow-green eyes. "Uh... hi, little kit. Are you lost?" She asked. Starsky thought about it. She guessed this was concidered lost. She nodded. "I guess you need someone to take care of you then, right?" She nodded again. "Would you like me to take of you?" Starkit just met this cat. Could she really trust her? She decided to take a chance. She nodded. The cat smiled. "Im Sunsoul. And you are?" "Starkit," she said quietly. And that was the begining of a great freindship. You could say Sunsoul was supposed to be an adopted mother to Starkit, but instead they were best freinds. They spent many moons on their own. Until one day, they heard a painfull yowl. "What was that?" Sunsoul asked. Starkit took after the yowl. Sunsoul was forced to chase after her.
