After Dr. Sylvia Barron is dumped by her boyfriend on the way to their vacation without her purse or ID, she lands in a puddle of beer and sprains her ankle. Desperate, she accepts help from a handsome passerby, nurse Ray Macalister. Blaming herself for her only sibling’s tragic death, she dedicated all her time to fulfilling his dream and became a successful surgeon. As her attraction to Ray grows, she wants to finally open her aching heart to amor. But when deadly threats start, will she have to walk away to avoid putting his life in danger?
Since his fiancée traded him for fame in a big city, Ray Macalister is done with career women. Growing up without a father, all he’s ever wanted is to be a good dad someday. He doesn’t hesitate to help a woman he considers a homeless drunk. Soon he realizes his error, but he’s drawn to the attractive doctor with a painful past. When someone is clearly after her, he wants to protect her, even when she runs away from him. But how can he protect his own heart, from both emotional pain and flying bullets?
my point of view:
Okay, yes, if you are all a frequent flyer of Fiction Full of Faith, this will come as no surprise to you – I adore Alexa Verde, there I said it, so we can just go on from here….LOL Seriously though, it takes a lot for me to enjoy a book so much that I want to not only review it on my blog, but promote it to everyone I possibly can!
That being said, Season of Amor is just THAT good! Not only is this a wonderful, spiritual romance, but it has that element of suspense and mystery that Alexa Verde is so amazing at writing! If you have already been blessed to read Season of Love and Season of Romance, then you know all about the Macalister family. Now we really get to know Ray, the lone brother of the bunch. Mind you, this book entirely stands on it’s own!
Ray is such a sweetheart, he just can’t help but take in “strays’ as his sisters rib him about all the time, lol! But Dr. Sylvia is not your ordinary stray, as Ray is quick to find out! Sylvia is a great character and easy for me to relate to, as I know how it is to grow up trying to please others all the time. It’s only when we can stop listening to the outside world and trust in God alone that we can become all that He has planned for us.
The journey of Ray and Sylvia is amazing, and I think you will all enjoy the ride! This story truly had me losing sleep, as the suspense part of it had my heart rate increasing and I just had to keep reading to find out who the culprit was! I promise you I was totally shocked!
