Desiree Armstrong was on her way to becoming a famous artist when a fire in her studio destroyed many of her prized pieces and nearly killed her. Deciding to recuperate at the beach, she heads to a newly opened B&B located in Sag Harbor.

Unbeknownst to her, the owner, Lincoln Davenport, is the love she's never gotten over. When Lincoln learns of her impending arrival old memories haunt him. And seeing her in person after all these years only brings out his desire for her more. Now Lincoln must not only work to restore her faith in him, he must help her work through her recent devastation.

Although Hill effectively paints descriptive pictures in her latest novel, Dare to Dream is slow to start and never quite works up any steam. Though not one of the veteran author's best, it may still appeal to loyal fans who don't mind a slower-paced read. (Sep., 253 pp., $6.99)
