Sadie's Prize



Sadie Spencer would stop at nothing to help her students. Even if it meant winning a date with one of Oklahoma's most eligible bachelors, Andrew Knight, to get him to listen to their needs. But on their "date," Sadie quickly saw that Andrew was more than the cold businessman she'd assumed he was, and he had a lot more to offer than mere money.

Experience had taught Andrew that he didn't need anyone in his life. Until Sadie began to show him that he could make a difference in her students' lives—and in hers. But though the walls he'd built around his heart were slowly crumbling, would he ever find the courage to make peace with his past so that he could be not only Sadie's prize…but her husband?

My Review:

This is my first experience with Harlequin's new Heartwarming series and I loved the classic romantic feel of the read. While the books in the series don't include an inspirational thread they are clean, family-oriented romances and this one definitely struck an emotional chord with me.

Daley had me from the great first meet in at the beginning of the book until the very end. Pure romance with all its pitfalls. Along with pure reader enjoyment. I loved the way she developed the story, each scene building on the previous one until I was emotionally invested in Sadie and Andrew's outcome. Honest and real and heart-breaking at time, Sadie's Prize is a prize indeed. The perfect choice of the classic romance reader.
