A PROMISE BY DAYLIGHT
DeLaine’s fresh voice and wildly exciting adventure romances are sure to make her a reader favorite. She doesn’t disappoint with the third of her series and her most unconventional heroine yet. There is plenty of emotion, fully realized characters, sexual tension and fast-paced plot to please, but there is also an underlying layer to the story that delves into character motivation and the search for a purpose and the need to be loved, which will speak to romance readers in a special way.
After a near-fatal accident, the Duke of Winston hires a personal medic to help with his recuperation. Posing as a young man, Millicent Germain seizes the opportunity. Winston’s plans include a trip to Greece, putting Millie that much closer to Malta’s medical school and her dream of becoming a doctor. Winston realizes her disguise early on and is intrigued. Caring for the surly Winston isn’t easy, but Millie earns his respect. When the duke’s plans change, Millie lands back in England at his country estate. Their mutual desire leads to nights of passion, and if Winston and Millie let go of their pasts, they’ll learn that love is the best medicine. (HQN, Sep., 380 pp., $7.99)
