"You can't go wrong picking up a Susan Fox book." --Romance Reviews Today
Pay a visit to Caribou Crossing, the rustic, inviting Western town where broken hearts mend and new love takes root. . .
Dave Cousins, owner of the Wild Rose Inn, is known throughout Caribou Crossing as the nicest--and loneliest--guy in town. He's had his heart broken more than once, and he's determined not to let it happen again. So it's no wonder he's wary when a free-spirited drifter leaves him longing for more than just a steamy fling. . .
Like the wild goose tattooed on her shoulder, Cassidy Esperanza goes wherever the wind takes her. For her, a new day means a fresh start. And yet something about her days in Caribou Crossing--and nights with its handsome hotel owner--makes her think about staying a while. But when life takes an unexpected turn, her first instinct is to take flight once more. Is Dave strong enough to help them both face their fears, come to terms with the past, and believe that sometimes love truly can last a lifetime?
"The perfect sweep-you-away story--smart, sexy, funny and touching. Susan Fox delivers an unforgettable read." --Susan Wiggs on Home on the Range
Fox knows how to strike just enough sway between sweet and bitter, homespun and steamy, to sustain a reader's interest in her fourth novel set in the small town of Caribou Crossing, British Columbia (after Gentle on My Mind). This time around, local hotelier, "nicest guy in town," and confirmed immovable object Dave Cousins encounters wanderer Cassidy Esperanza, who has no money, no job, and no prospects. From the day she faints in the lobby of Dave's Wild Rose Inn, Cassidy has a place in the innkeeper's heart. Dave's wife, Anita, succumbed to cancer, and he's sure he'll never love again, but he can't resist Cassidy's joie de vivre. When the girl with the Canada goose tattoo is forced into a reckoning about some serious issues, the couple's wild, noncommittal fling faces a now-or-never assessment. It's a sweet story, well told, with credible characters about bitter pills. Included is a bonus novella, "Stand by Your Man," which provides the backstory of another couple briefly featured in the novel.
