Overview

The daughter of an over-protective father, Millicent Anderson has never been permitted an ounce of freedom? her father has kept her completely sheltered from boys, and even quashed her dream of being a teacher. But when a family trip leads her to tiny Moose Falls, Montana, and she catches sight of bad boy Johnny Pickett, her heart flips — and before she knows it, she's breaking all the rules to be near him. In Johnny's arms, Millie discovers passion, and Millie is just what Johnny needs to heal after war. When her father tries to separate them by dangling her old dreams before her, however, Millie's forced to make a choice: Will she choose the love of her family and the opportunity to build a career — or will she leave everything behind for the hot guy she's fallen for?

How about $0.35 for just 35 pages, instead.? I enjoy some of this author's other books.

I love this author but only 35 pages for a book? Boooooo!

Thats beyond a "short"story! They really need to add the # of pages to the overviews of books. Not worth the cost!

Good story

At only 35 pages this feels rushed and forced.

I loved the story, but was disapointed that no where did the Banes & Knoble state that this was a SHORT SHORT STORY. I was planning on reading this on a business trip, but did not have much to read!

Love Toni Blakes books. This one was on the short side but, still held the quality of her writing.

This short-novella reminded me of my MOST favorite movie of all time, "DIRTY DANCING!" Hence there was absolutely NO dancing, but the storylines were similar. Good, well-behaved young lady, Millicent Anderson, has done every single thing her father had ever asked her to do. Go to a Catholic School, attending an all-girls college, and eventually graduating with her teacher's degree. However, Millie's father, Harold, doesn't want her to teach in Appalachia, where Millie has dreamt of teaching since childhood, instead he would rather her become a replacement for his secretary. It's not until they visit Moose Falls, Montana for a week trip, commending Millie's recent graduation (yet it's disguised as a business venture for her father), when Millie truly allows to LET-IT-ALL-HANG-LOOSE! She meets Johnny Pickett, at the infamous boathouse from "Letter to a Secret Lover," that his father owns and he is currently employed at. It was LOVE at first sight, for both of them. Nonetheless, Johnny is not what Harold would ever consider boyfriend material for Millie. The boy from the wrong side of the tracks, or in his case the boy who went to war, and returned a man. There is an instant attraction to Johnny and Millie, one that cannot be extinguished by anyone who gets in their way, especially Harold. But could they truly and undeniably make it work? My ONLY qualm about this story was its EXTREMELY short. Had Ms. Blake actual written a full novel, then I would've given it beyond a 10 star rating. Yet overall, what a CAPTIVATED insight to the WORLD-WIND ROMANCE, who technically started it all, Johnny & Millie. DEFINITELY WITHOUT-A-DOUBT A 4 1/2 STAR RATING!!

I would have loved to read a longer story and heard more about Johnny and Millie's future, however I very much loved this short story.
