This is a sweet romance in which Isabel has been shattered by her ex-husband's betrayal and death. Linc is the narcotics detective that investigated her ex's activities. While Linc has contributed to the stress and strife in Isabel's world, he can't help his attraction to her. Despite the turmoil, Isabel is equally attracted to Linc, but is afraid to get close to him because of his dangerous job. What follows is a sweet romance that has you hoping for a happily ever after. While part of a series, this is a stand alone novel.

Cute read, great storyline and characters, but no action. You were introduced to several people that didn't add to the story. It wrapped up to easily. Maybe because this was only about 100 pages. All I can say it's a start to what could be a really great book. Mjw

This book read more like the telenovias mentioned in this book. Sex scenes were awful and totally un-neccesary. A perfectly good read, ruined by the author's only requirement in a man which was having a "thick penis". Truely sad.

When planting a tree, Isabel Garcia found a briefcase full of drugs. Her late husband had been a drug dealer so she reported her find to Lieutenant Linc Heller who had originally handled the case. This couple are attracted to each other but Isabel doesn't want to get involved with Linc because of his dangerous job. She also has a 5 year old daughter to think about and keep safe. Linc understands Isabel's feelings about his profession but he is crazy about her so he pursues her. He shows her what a good man is like and that love does exist. I loved the characters in this story. Isabel was a wonderful woman. She's strong, a fantastic mother and daughter and very hard worker. Linc was a tough, no nonsense type man at work but very kind and sweet with Isabel and her daughter, Suzie. He's the perfect man. Suzie was the cutest little girl. I just loved her. This romance had me in tears and smiling at the same time. If you like romance, read this.

OK - BUT OTHER BOOKS ARE SO MUCH BETTER. I wish they have 1/2-stars because I would give this a 2-1/2 star rating. The premise of the story could have been written so much better and become a 4-star easily. I agree with others that Isabel was annoying. Whine, whine, whine that the man she knew was a cop would not quit his job.

Not bad , pretty good story line . I found Isabel a little annoying , she was young so maybe that's what the author was going for . It could be a good series .

Isabel is a single mom and was digging to plant a tree when she finds a case she thinks might be her dead husbands. He had been accused of having involvement with drugs. She contacts the police about the case. She comes in contact with Linc a new detective in the task force that chases criminals down. I just didn’t like this story if Isabel didn’t want to be with a man who had a dangerous job why did she start a relationship with Linc as she knew what his job was. Then to whine and carry on all through the story I just felt Isabel totally ruined the story for me. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

sabel is a single mom that lives in the shadow of her deceased husband’s criminal actions. She finds evidence against her late husband in the garden and brings it to Officer Lincoln Heller. Isabel is instantly attracted to Linc and the feeling is mutual but Linc’s high risk career is something she will never expose her daughter to. Linc actively and dominantly pursues Isabel. Although Isabel is almost instantly in love with Linc, she tires to hold his advances at bay because she fears his high risk career. I had a little problem with Isabel’s vacillation between her conflicting emotions of love and fear. Resistance is futile… I enjoyed this sweet, wooing romance. Linc is a strong and uber alpha. Isabel shares some of that strength characteristics but she also comes across as a deeply caring parent. In the end, Wooed by You was an easy, entertaining and heart felt romance. I received this copy of Wooed by You from Victoria Koch in exchange for a honest review.

An excellent story of a single mom dealing with circumstances that are completely out of her control. Finding out her late husband was involved in criminal activities was difficult but she dealt with it. Now though she finds herself having to deal with it again when a simple gardening activity unearths more evidence against him. Detective Linc Heller showing up on her doorstep was something she was prepared for, her crazy attraction to him wasn't. His relentless pursuit of her wasn't expected either. He's determined to prove to her that he has what it takes to make her happy but his profession is one thing that scares her the most. She doesn't think she or her son can handle another devastating loss in their life. Linc won't give up on them though and is willing to do whatever it takes for her to want him back. This book is wonderfully written with a nice easy flow and some pretty terrific characters. Definitely one I recommend!

I had never read a book by Ms Knightly and must say I really enjoyed this one. It’s the first of a series titled Tropical Heat. I was impressed with her accuracy of the Cuban/Latin customs. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, and have been living in South Florida for over 30 years So I know ! The story is filled with romance, intrigue, police work and strong male and female characters, always a plus for me. It centers around Linc, a detective that investigated Isabel when her estranged husband had died in a motorcycle accident. Unbeknown to Isabel , he was involved with the drug cartel. Isabel was cleared , but months later she finds a piece of evidence from her ex’s illegal work, and contacts Linc. From the beginning it was evident that they had chemistry. But Isabel has a child and doesn’t want her to lose another person she might love. Needless to say, there is a lot of pull and push going on with Linc and Isabel. Good story, book and dialogue. I am looking forward to reading the next book of this series.

Wooed by you is the story of Linc and Isabel. Linc is a tough alpha narcotics detective and Isabel is the ex-wife of a now deceased drug dealer. They met after Isabel's ex was killed in a motorcycle accident and he came to investigate if Isabel knew anything about the drug activity. Time has passed and Isabel finds a briefcase buried in her garden, she immediately calls Linc, who shows up to talk to her and take the drugs. The attraction between the two of them is instantaneous, but Isabel is not going to get involved with anyone who puts his life in danger, because she has her daughter, Suzie, to protect. The author has written a really good story about how a person can get past their preconceived impressions and let go of past pain. She captures Suzie perfectly as a precocious child who is looking for a father figure. If you like a love story with a little bit of crime/drama, you will enjoy this book. Linc is your macho hero, Isabel is your damsel in distress, and happily ever after is the goal. But don't think Isabel needs or wants Linc to save her, she is completely able to save herself. I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review .

Wooed By You By: Sophia Knightly Reviewed by: Elizabeth/snoopypeach An absolutely wonderful book!! The characters are so rich and well developed, full of fire and so real they will draw you right in. Isabel is strong, beautiful and full of enough spunk to stand up touching that comes her way. Linc is absolute sexy male perfection! From his protective streak to his sexy good looks to his core of strength, you can't help but wish he'd walk right out of the book! Sweet cutie pie little Suzie will melt your heart and have you laughing out loud. The story is written so that you are carried away and have read every word before you can put it down! There are real situations that you can't help but associate with the characters over, and just enough action to have you waiting on pins and needles. This is one not to be missed! Received a copy for an honest review.

I loved this book by Sophia Knightly! She writes strong alpha males and Linc was no different. I believe that he is my favorite so far out of all of her alpha males. Linc is a law enforcement officer and meets Isabel while investigating her late ex-husband. He is attracted from the very beginning, but knows that Isabel is not in a place in her life where she is looking for a relationship. Isabel is frightened about starting a new relationship. She is just starting to date and that isn't working out so well. Everything about Linc makes her nervous. He is attractive, protective, strong, an alpha male who knows what he wants and goes after it. Her greatest difficultly is his job. He puts himself in danger every day and she doesn't think that she and her daughter can go through another loss in their lives so she pushes him away. Linc decides the best way to get Isabel to change her mind is to woo her. I was given an ARC for an honest review. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

This is a must read, Sophia Knightly never disappoints in her books. I absolutely love her books. I was given an ARC of this wonderful book, for my honest review.
Nicolerko More than 1 year ago
The title for this one fits the book so perfectly because Isabel and her daughter as in the path to be wooed by Linc. This book does have it all some suspense, passion, heart, and humor. The interaction between Linc and Isabel's daughter is precious. Linc has to have a lot of determination if he is going to win over Isabel because he has his work cut out for him. Isabel has been burned by her ex husband where she is so very wary of risking her heart again, but that Linc sure is making it hard to resist him. Though Linc is as alpha as they come he has such a gentlemanly side to him that just wins you over. Definitely give this one a read.

Wooed by You is another great book by Sophia Knightly in her Tropical Heat Series. When planting a tree in her yard, Isabel Garcia makes a terrible discovery. She keeps finding evidence of her former husband’s ties to the drug cartel. She calls the police to let them know she has discovered buried drugs. Lieutenant Linc Heller responds. Isabel knows him well since he has been interviewing her about her ex’s past. There is heat every time Isabel sees him. Isabel made a bad choice in marring a drug dealer so she is wary about entering into any kind of relationship especially when it may impact her young daughter. When she needs help Linc offers her a loan with an interesting cause. Can Isabel overcome her fear and find love with Linc. You will love going on this journey with these two characters. I enjoy all of Sophia Knightly’s Tropic Heat books and I think you will too.

Wooed by You follows the tumultuous relationship of Linc, a hardened vice detective, and Isabelle, a young widow and mother who runs an orchard. I much enjoyed watching the relationship between these two characters unfold and I found the characters to be quite well developed. They were very real and complex and this allowed me to really become invested in their lives. I liked that the author gave us the alternating viewpoints of Linc and Isabelle in the writing. I think this helps to make this story one that both men and women can relate to. Overall, I found the book to be delightful, compelling, pure, intriguing, and totally captivating. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a very sweet and engaging read. * I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.
