    I Felt Like I Was Home

    Being a South Carolinian I must say she did a wonderful job capturing the unique environment and culture of the Low Country and the Sea Islands. Each word made me feel as if I was home sitting on my mothers porch watching this story play out and that I was an attendee at every event.

    The story was well thought out and delivered perfectly. I enjoy

    The story was well thought out and delivered perfectly. I enjoyed how you allowed Morgan and Nate's relationship evolve, into a love story. You allowed each to overcome their fears about becoming involved. I would like for you to introduce another book in this series, which allows us to know how Morgan and Nate are doing, along with focusing on how the resotoration is going and on either Francine or David. You can't leave us hanging.

    Morgan Dane is a sharp, skilled, professional architect who¿s la

    Morgan Dane is a sharp, skilled, professional architect who’s landed a job to restore historic Angels Landing Plantation.  As she left her family’s business to do this, some in the town aren’t happy with her forwardness.  But Morgan knows what she wants, that is until she meets a carpenter, Nat (Nathaniel) Shaw.  She wants to hire him to help her with the restoration project and wants to keep it purely business with no relationship problems that will spoil the business side of it. Morgan has lost a former love to another woman and was so wounded from the process that she’s got an armor-like veneer when it comes to any male talking to her outside of business. Still there’s a huge hole and need for love but will it be filled by someone worthwhile and sincere? Whether either likes it or not, ittle by little, Morgan and Nat are drawing closer, beginning with admiration for each other’s work.  Soon, they find they’re always thinking of each other, including how physically hot each one is to the other!
    Nat’s got a history holding him back, being married to a celebrity with money and finding the high maintenance and partying life can’t hide the lack of love his wife really felt for him. But at the time he thought it was perfect, despite his father’s and other town people’s cautionary words.  Now he’s burnt out from it all and therefore extremely hesitant mentally toward a new romance, even though his heart and body are screaming otherwise when Morgan comes to mind or in her actual presence!
    Some secrets remain to be handled one at a time. Past attitudes about former family weddings tend to put ideas in the mind that could seriously affect one’s future relationship.  But Morgan and Nat are growing because of the love they finally admit, including by the way, some ultra-hot sexy scenes they share.  Shedding the old destructive skins of the past, they will eventually decide that the future is not always a repetition of the past, as long as one understands what went wrong with that past.  
    Haven Creek is a lovely, warm-hearted romance sure to please those who love a happily-ever-after style ending!  Nicely done, Rochelle Alers!

    In Haven Creek by Rochelle Alers, Morgan Dane grew up on Cavanau

    In Haven Creek by Rochelle Alers, Morgan Dane grew up on Cavanaugh Island, South Carolina, intending to be an engineer but later changed her major to architecture. She recently started her own business and is now in charge of restoring beautiful Angels Landing Plantation on the island. She dreamed as a child of working on an important project like this and can't wait to get started. She knows she'll need an experienced crew to help her and she can think of no better group than Shaw Woodworking. She's trying to convince herself that her teenage crush on Nate Shaw has nothing to do with her choice. She hasn't had a chance to speak with him since he returned from the West Coast about six months before, after being gone for many years. Morgan wants to hear firsthand what he's been through considering the gossip that's spread across the island regarding his divorce from his model/actress wife in LA.

    ~ 'Think with your head and not your heart. Love with your heart and not your head.' It was as if she could hear her grandfather and namesake whispering to her. She hadn't come this far, sacrificed a love life to advance her career, to let her heart overrule her head.~

    Morgan's old feelings start to resurface from the first moment of interaction with Nate. He's just as handsome as ever and is very interested in working together with her on the Plantation restoration project. She becomes confused when Nate gives her mixed signals on his feelings towards her and relationships in general. He claims he doesn't want to ever get married again after what he's been through, but he hints at dating her and about a possible future together. Morgan also finds she has some mixed feelings herself. She never planned on a long-term relationship at this time in her life, especially after just taking such a huge career leap. She finds herself wondering if she can balance a future with Nate along with her blossoming career. And can she overcome her childhood insecurities that create havoc with her self-confidence?

    ~ 'He wondered if she looked at all men the way she looked at him. Did she realize how seductive she was? Morgan was the total package: intelligence, incredible beauty, a flawless complexion, a dimpled smile, and a drop-dead gorgeous body.' ~

    Nathaniel "Nate" Shaw has been working nonstop on the barn that will become the new home of Shaw Woodworking. He came back to Cavanaugh Island to get away from the mess that his life had become in California. He should have known that his marriage was doomed when his supermodel wife spent time partying instead of on a honeymoon with him. When she admitted to multiple infidelities, that was the final straw. He's now focusing on growing his father's business and he knows when Morgan asks him to work with her, that this is just what they need. Nate is astounded at how beautiful Morgan grew up to be. The more time he spends in her company, the more drawn he is to her and before long, finds himself falling for her. He still has trust issues after the fiasco that was his marriage and tries to deal with it on his own without really explaining it to Morgan. He wonders if he should take a leap of faith and open up to her, to trust that they can build a life together, or if he should pass it off as a fling and bury himself in work all over again.

    Rochelle Alers has written a charming love story with characters that find themselves at a turning point in their lives. Morgan and Nate are watching their siblings and friends settle down and they must each decide if they can see themselves do the same. While there definitely is passion in their relationship, they try to be a bit more mature by talking through issues and spending time defining the ground rules ahead of time. Check this one out if you enjoy reading about island life, family traditions and a teenage crush coming true as an adult.
