Joss & Braden. Ellie & Adam. Jo & Cam. Olivia & Nate. Hannah & Marco. Shanon & Cole. And one Valentine’s Day they’ll never forget.
It’s Valentine’s Day! How do Joss & Braden, Ellie & Adam, Jo & Cam, Olivia & Nate, Hannah & Marco and Shannon & Cole keep the fire burning in their relationships while trying to juggle busy careers and the joyful chaos of parenthood? Find out in VALENTINE, six sexy and emotional short stories, one for each couple in the On Dublin Street series so far, making up a short novella about one very special day.
VALENTINE: An On Dublin Street Novella is a special gift to fans of the series in thanks for supporting HERO, her first standalone contemporary romance.
Does it matter if you read a holiday themed book around the holidays? I don’t think it usually matters — a good story is good story. I do agree that when read around a holiday it can help put you in the mood for the event. Or, in this case it can just help put you in the mood.
I was looking up some information for the newest book in the series: MOONLIGHT ON NIGHTINGALE WAY when I came across this on Amazon. In VALENTINE, author Samantha Young creates sketches of several couples from her Dublin Road series. If you don’t know the stories behind all the characters it’s okay; the story won’t be as rich but they’ll still be enjoyable and easy to understand.
They all revolve around one Valentine’s Day for this close group of friends and relatives. Apparently they take turns taking care of the kids so one couple gets stuck at home while the others go off on their merry ways. In this volume you get couples who feel neglect, couples who are in the first bloom of love, couples who are old hat but still hot for each other, even one guy super attracted to his sexily pregnant wife. There’s a lot going on.
When I got it it was free on Amazon. At free it was a tremendous bargain with nicely written vignettes and it’s good reading any time of year! I have enjoyed the series as well!
