Overview

Courting Desire by Aurora North

Set in the Second City, Chicago, the book chronicles the challenges a young woman faces leaving the security of her rural upbringing to work in the legal justice system. Longing for both a creative outlet and a soulmate, Dana must relinquish childhood security and brave possible rejection when she meets the enigmatic Gianni.

Chicagoans will particularly enjoy scenes throughout the book: familiar neighborhoods, restaurants, and the comfortable Midwestern atmosphere of this cosmopolitan city, ever-changing and yet constant. For others, family life in the Northern Indiana countryside will evoke pleasant memories and draw the reader into various settings and fictional characters.

A gentle romance, "Courting Desire" will provide readers with humor, familiarity and a cozy look into a time and place to be chronicled further in upcoming books by this author.

The book was great from the first chapter to the last page. I would recommend to all of my friends, and I have already told my book club about it! What a great book, I cannot wait to see what else Aurora has to offer!

The story which takes place in Chicago, my home town, brought back lots of memories of the Windy City. It keeps a steady pace of activity throughout the book and you never feel you wish it were over. On the contrary, you want more and more details, perhaps in the next book????

I've only been to Chicago once (found it very cold and windy) but reading this book gave me a sense of the real warmth to be found in this beautiful city. I fell in love with Gianni on the spot, handsome, successful and NICE - what more could we ask for in a hero? Turning the pages, I willed Dana and Gianni to end up together, never knowing how it would be possible, nevertheless hoping. This is a book that you'll feel comfortable sharing with friends and family. And I love happy endings.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this lovely, sweet story. The characters were so well written, I felt as if I knew them all personally! The main character, Dana, is someone with whom many women can relate. She's looking for that special someone but carrying on with day to day life in the meantime. I found it hard to put the book down, I was so absorbed in the story. I do hope that the author will bring us more books on the life and love of Dana and Gianni!

This is a wonderful love story that takes place in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is beautifully written, easy to read and I couldn't put it down. The characters are so interesting and very likeable, and it leaves you wanting more. I was very impressed with this author's first novel and I can't wait for No. 2!
