Skye Larsen loves her peaceful life on Leeza Island in Puget Sound – the tranquility, the friendly neighbors, and especially the safety from big-city dangers. So when cruel pranks start to escalate and changes threaten to overtake the island, Skye is determined to fight for her haven. The presence of a handsome vacationer and the unexpected feelings he awakens can’t distract her from her goal.
Danny Fraser doesn’t realize how desperately he needs a rest until he meets Skye. By allowing him to glimpse her simple way of life, she helps him reorient his priorities – and steals his heart in the process. But his work and home in Seattle keep Skye at bay.
An isolated island girl with painful memories. A dedicated city boy with a wild past. What will it cost for them both to find a refuge from their storms?
What a compelling read! I devoured it! Love's Refuge is packed with enticing story threads that will captivate discerning readers.
I loved Skye's journey arc. Her ability to overcome a traumatic event in her past is nothing short of heroic. When we first meet her she's coping because she can control her environment but when that control starts to slip we get to see what Skye is really made of. Stunning character development with a strong inspirational thread had me cheering this heroine on every step of the way.
And I loved how Danny is very much a part of Skye's transformation -- a perfect tie-in to the title as love truly becomes a refuge. But Danny does his own growing as well with Skye as his tutor. I love how two people who appear to be so opposite to each other end up becoming perfect soul mates.
There's a surprising thread of suspense woven through this tale as well which had me reading furiously to the very end. Not to mention providing a gasp-out-loud moment in a heart wrenching scene. I couldn't believe the author could be so cruel.
I also appreciated the strong environmental thread that rounded out this wonderful read. It's evident that the author holds a reverence for God's creations and that added a whole different dimension to the story.
All round stunning read that is sure to please romance lovers everywhere.
