Overview

You never know what destiny has in store . . .

A rugged loner and ex-biker-gang member, Duke Dawson is looking for some peace and quiet while recovering from an accident. But when Anna Romo comes wandering through his woods and into his cabin, she completely rocks his world. The last thing he expected or wanted was to find himself hungering after a woman whose eyes held hurt even deeper than his own . . .

Running from a troubled past, Anna is building a new life in Destiny. When she first meets Duke, she's terrified—but something about him calls to her very soul. The hard-bodied rebel is soon helping her turn her new home into a bed and breakfast, and close quarters quickly lead them into her bed. Their passion is palpable, but can she convince a man who has turned his back on life to take the biggest leap of faith of all and fall in love?

Anna and Duke’s romance is filled with searing passion as well as soul crushing pain. You just can’t help rout for this couple to find their happiness.

    Loved Book 6

    This is the last of six books in this series by Toni Blake... Wonderfully written story of loss, broken hearts and rebuilding... My emotions in this one were all over the place... Such depth of despair to such heights of ecstasy ... Wonderful characters and Duke and Anna were such wounded souls and together they found a way out of their personal darkness... Makes you believe in tomorrow... Great characters in this entire series and so many lessons to be learned about life and living... Guarantee you will laugh and you will cry but you will end up with WOW!

    A MUST READ SERIES AND BOOK........

    I have to say this book is my favorite of the series!! Anna and Duke are 2 "outsiders" new to Destiny who find each other and find love. The underlying story of Cathy and Robert's romance of 50 years ago make it even more special! THIS SERIES, THE STORIES, THE AUTHOR --- WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL!!! Each book grabs the reader and makes them part of the story -- I actually experienced the emotions with the characters!! Well done!!! (It's nice that each of the other characters continue on in each book -- reeder always updated!!)

    Beginning with one of my favorite quotes: ¿And that was the ques

    Beginning with one of my favorite quotes:
    “And that was the question: Was it better to take every chance, play every last card, reach into her chest and put her heart on the table right in front of him? Or was it wiser to accept defeat, cut her losses, lick her wounds, and keep what little remained of her dignity so that she wasn’t completely destroyed?”

    Why do I love that quote so much? Because it’s a perfect example of love and what it can do to you. In this book, you find complicated layers to every character and it’s always fascinating to read.

    Toni Blake writes a contemporary version of Phantom of the Opera, which is similar in so many ways to Beauty & The Beast — though in the Phantom, Christine ends up with Raoul and in Beauty, Belle ends up with the Beast. I won’t let you know which way this ends, but I note Phantom of the Opera here because every chapter begins with a quote from the original book by Gaston Leroux, and because Anna finds an old copy of the book with an inscription inside that begins her semi-obsessive interest in the previous owner of the house – a woman named Cathy.

    Anna finds Cathy’s diary from when she was 17, along with old records, and the book, inscripted to her from a man named Robert — who Anna learns through the diary, was Cathy’s first true love. And the similarities between their situations, whether they are near 30 years of age in 2013 or only 17 in the 1950s, are daunting but also comforting.

    While this book is the sixth in a series, it can be read alone — I did just fine with it, though now I want to go buy the other five books to read the stories of the other characters. But Blake writes a fantastic story of hidden scars, secrets, and learning how to open up, trust and love again — and both Duke and Anna have very good reasons why they would be wary to do any of those three things until they find each other. Duke is her Phantom or Beast, and Jeremy is her Raoul. He’s sweet, outgoing, loved by all, and actively pursues Anna, but not in an obnoxious way. They have fun together and smile and laugh and join in with the town.

    I highly recommend it to any and all, as I enjoy HEAs and the Phantom of the Opera — though I’m not usually a huge proponent of Beauty and the Beast because I think it is what pushes girls to the bad guy all the time, thinking they’re the one who can change him when, in all actuality, he’s probably just a huge jerk. Yes the bad boys in books and TV shows and movies have that soft inner core, but I’ve found it’s a rare man in real life to match those expectations.

    In Half Moon Hill — who do you think she’ll end up with? I will say it’s fairly obvious, but for a little bit, you have to wonder. And that’s why I give this four out of five.

    It wasn't my favorite story from the Destiny series.  Duke and Anna just seemed a little flat compared to the other stories in the series.
