Overview

Horse whisperer Shane Stryker is done with passion. This time around, he’s determined to meet someone who will be content with the quiet life of a rancher’s wife. And the fiery, pint-size redhead who dazzles him at the local bar definitely does not fit the bill.

Small-town librarian Annabelle Weiss has always seen herself as more of a sweetheart than a siren, so she can’t understand why Shane keeps pushing her away. Shane has formed the totally wrong impression of her but only he can help her with a special event for the next Fool’s Gold festival. And maybe while he’s at it, she can convince him to teach her a few things about kissing on hot summer nights, too — some lessons, a girl shouldn’t learn from reading a book!

    I didn't want it to end! Susan Mallery has once again proven she is a great storyteller. The characters are easy to connect with, you feel as if you are part of the large "family" in Fool's Gold. My favorite scene is in Annabelle's kitchen, it had me giggling like a school girl. Like always I was not disappointed! I can't wait for All Summer Long.

    Every woman's fantasy - a man who thinks you're the best!

    What I love about Susan Mallery's characters is that they're so relatable. Annabelle the librarian is everywoman. She's not rich. She's not movie-star gorgeous. She's just a cute small-town librarian who dreams of finding love someday but fears she never will.

    Then Shane Stryker comes to town. When Shane looks at Annabelle, he doesn't see ordinary. He is completely bowled over by her sexiness. In fact, she's so sexy that Shane thinks she's trouble. He was burned by being married to an ex-wife who ran around on him, so Shane's determined that this time around, he's going to marry a plain Jane homemaker type who won't be attractive to other men. Annabelle is way too adorable for Shane's peace of mind!

    This book made me laugh right from the moment that Shane and Annabelle first met. Shane is so turned on that he can't even complete an intelligible sentence. Annabelle is baffled. I had a lot of fun imagining myself in Annabelle's shoes - who doesn't want a man to think you are the most beautiful woman in the world? Summer Nights is fun from start to finish!

    My Review:


    I really enjoyed this book, which isn't a surprise since I pretty much love all of Susan Mallery's books. But what made this book for me was Shane and Annabelle's sarcastic senses of humor. Both of them constantly had little quips and thoughts throughout the book which kept me giggling. Here's a good example. In the scene below, Annabelle was arguing about why it wasn't smart for her to ride a horse:


    "You'll be fine."
    "Do you know how short I am? It's farther for me than most people."
    "By a couple of inches."
    Inches could be significant. As a man, he should know that.

    Little quips like that simply kept me giggling throughout the entire book. I loved that about this book. There's great dialogue and chemistry between these two and the whole tone of the book stays happy and quirky the whole time...even when they are having issues. The happy, quick dialogue is a fabulous mainstay to this book.

    This is the middle book for this summer's Fools Gold trilogy (#8 if you're keeping track.) I think it's going to be my favorite simply because I love the characters and their jobs so much. Annabelle is a librarian (hello...book lover) and Shane raises horses (hello...cowboy)! Seriously, what's not to love here?? Combining books with cowboys? Yes, Susan Mallery is tuned in completely to my fantasy perfect world.

    And I really liked both these characters. They've both been married before and both have the emotional wounds to prove it, although Shane has more leftover mental issues with relationship than Annabelle does.

    And let's not forget the whole Stryker farm menagerie which adds great fun to the book. As the cowboy, Shane falls to the in-charge guy of all the animals his mother keeps adopting. I loved how he kept trying to help Priscilla, the elephant, to alleviate her loneliness...even to the point of taking in the pony, Reno (he hates ponies...leftover trauma from childhood.) I loved that everyone is terrified of the stallion Khatar except for Annabelle. The way that he follows her around and loves her completely...just a GORGEOUS aspect to this story.

    The next book is Charlie and Clay. My heart simply aches for Charlie, so I am so excited to watch her find her Happily Ever After. Only one more month until All Summer Long.

    Summer Nights is a great summer read. I love that Annabelle wanted to learn how to ride a horse for her fundraiser for her bookmobile that she cares so much about. I don't want to give away anything. There was so many twists & turns in this book! I love that so much. There is 1 thing that I absolutely love a lot, but I can not say. My daughter is disabled & she takes horseback riding lessons. Summer Nights is my favorite book in the entire Fool's Gold series! I give 5 stars! Way to go Susan Mallery!!

    Fool's Gold continues to be one of my favorite series. Susan Mallery writes such loveable characters that you can't help but fall in love with all of them. Summer Nights is a wonderful love story between Shane and Annabelle that teaches readers not to judge new love by the harm an old love caused. It blends friendship and romance perfectly and leaves you wanting to read the next novel, All Summer Long as soon as possible. :D

    I love this book. Not only are the hero and heroine great, but so are the secondary characters/animals. Loved all the critters involved in the writing of this book. It is must read for the beach this summer. Grab Summer Days(the first in the trilogy), Summer Nights, and at the end of July All Summer Long. Great summer reading. Now head on over to Fool's Gold to see what's going on.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    I love and read all of Susan’s books but this one is extra special since Susan chose the name I suggested for the librarian – Annabelle – and then gave her my last name so Annabelle Weiss was born. It was such a nice feeling to see Annabelle’s name in print throughout the book since essentially Summer Nights is her story.

    There was the requisite happily ever after but it was a long time coming – until the last few pages of the book but you couldn’t help but root for Shane and Annabelle to get together and express their love for each other. There were tears, laughter, many romances, reconnecting with characters from the other Fool’s Gold books as well as the introduction of a few new characters. There was also some hardheadedness as expressed by some of the characters – especially Shane, lots of family and friends, new babies and some angst. You could envision yourself at the ranch, in town, and at the social events due to all the vivid descriptions.

    The story flowed easily and was a nice continuation of the Fool’s Gold’s books that have come before although I have not read book 7, so was missing some of the blanks leading up to Heidi and Rafe’s nuptials. There was closure although another chapter or two would have been icing on the cake. I look forward to reading the other books in the series to come out this summer and hope that this series will continue indefinitely since there are so many more stories to tell. An enjoyable read, highly recommended. If you haven’t read other books by Mallery give her a try! You’ll be glad you did.

    Favorite Quote: She couldn’t even hate him, she thought, resigned to the inevitable. Because she loved his honor as much as she loved everything else about him. But forever duty, wasn’t forever love. And she’d promised herself she was never going to settle again.

    I loved this book. A great addition to Fools Gold. It was kind of bittersweet, two lost and suffering souls who work towards finding each other. Great read.

    We’ve been hearing about Annabelle for awhile now and it’s interesting to finally see who she ended up with. I liked Shane from the previous book, but never thought these two could actually make it work, because they have different words and life in a ranch can be pretty difficult, but Annabelle was pretty awesome with Kathar and the other horses. These last few books made Fool’s Gold reputation came true. The city does grow on us and the characters.

    When Annabelle first told about the dancing horse thing and I was sure these two would be a couple but they have a difficult way to make things happen and Shane was still fighting a little with his feelings because his e-wife was a mess and he needed someone calm, interesting how Annabelle fit that and even more. They where nice together, but the couple missed a little chemistry for me.

    Shane made a few mistakes, but he was learning to trust himself again and I liked meeting the new brother. This was a nice romance.

    This is a must-read!

    I love Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold series, and this is just one more winner in that ongoing story. I love the way she expands on the reader's knowledge of the people of Fool's Gold, a community with many interconnections and richly-drawn characters. I highly recommend that reader's get the whole series - you will love it.

    As an otherkin border collie, I feel this book is offensive to the trans kin world. I have never felt so shamed. I would no star if possible.
