Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
Today the book I am spotlighting is The Buckhorn Legacy by Lori Foster. I got this book from Amazon Vine. It is a re-titled, re-release of a book first published in 2002. It is actually the fifth book in that series. Since each is a stand-alone romance, I thought I could start anywhere. It was released again on Oct. 23, 2012.
Here is the description:
Emma Clark is back in Buckhorn. Once she was the girl with too much makeup and a bad reputation—and she tried everything she could to get Casey Hudson into bed. He was the cutest guy in town, and the only one who seemed to really care about her.Beginning:
As a hot-blooded teen it was hard for Casey to resist Emma. Now, eight years later, it's impossible. But Emma is doing her best to shut him out—and Casey needs to convince her that the attraction that burns between them isn't just leftover teenage lust, but his real love for a real woman…
The family picnic had lasted all day, and Casey had a feeling everything that should have been accomplished had been. In fact, even more had developed than he'd expected—like his present uncomfortable situation.Friday 56:
Emma gave that idea a quick but serious thought, and knew the only reasonable thing to do was to stop acting like a desperate ninny.So far this one is hitting the spot as a nice contemporary romance.
