As it does in many erotica novellas, the couple’s relationship in Valentine’s Heart progresses at lightening speed. However, Val and Cora are great together. Val is an open, honest and adventurous hero who is in need of some good old fashion fun. Cora is sweet and vulnerable and if anyone ever deserved to cut loose it’s her. Both feel very lucky for finding the other person and readers will get swept away by their newfound love. The couple’s intimacy – both emotional and physical – grows quickly when they embark on an exotic vacation where there is nothing to do all day but play in bed with some very naughty toys.
Valentine Holiday, a confirmed bachelor, is not looking for a relationship. So he is completely uninterested when he starts to get emails from a dating site that he never signed up for. Corazon Lopez did not sign up for a dating service either. As a dedicated social worker, she has no time to devote to men, so she tries to ignore the emails from the site that claims they have found her perfect match in Val. Eventually the two meet, if for no other reason than to put an end to the constant emails from the dating service. But when Val and Cora do come face-to-face, sparks fly and this pair finds they cannot keep their hands off of each other. (Ellora’s Cave, February 2011, dl. $4.45) *Web Exclusive Review*
