I apologize for posting two book reviews in a row, but I just finished this book and really enjoyed it!! I've been reading a lot lately, researching how authors create romantic tension in their stories. Unfortunately, many authors accomplish that through sex scenes. (For those of you concerned, I tend to skip over the sex pages.)
Anyway, I've been told that Lynn Kurland's books are good, so I gave them a try. I am happy too report that Lynn Kurland's books (at least this one, though I think most of them) are CLEAN ROMANCES!!! How refreshing!!!
Dreams of Stardust by Lynn Kurland
Jake Kilchurn travels the world to unearth exquisite stones for this one-of-a-kind creations, but it is during an unexpected side trip to Seakirk castle that he meets a cadre of ghosts discussing a timeless beauty who lived centuries ago.
Amanda de Piaget is busy doing what she does best—fending off suitors—when she stumbles on a different kind of man. He is unconscious, dirty, and oddly clad. But unlike the other men who find themselves at Artane, Jake knows nothing about her—and Amanda finds herself strangely drawn to him.
Time has brought them together to the safety of its walls, but only time will tell if they'll escape those who would try to tear them apart...
There weren't as many kissing scenes in this as I would have liked in it, but it was clean. I loved his devotion to her and his easy charm. He gave up everything to fight for her and worked so hard!! Jake was a true gentleman, and I fell in love with him right away! (Don't tell my husband!)
So if you need something clean to read and haven't read anything by Lynn Kurland, I would recommend her! I have several more in my pile to read!!
