Desperate times call for desperate measures, which is why Lorraina Danning has faked her own death. Seeing no other way out of her abusive marriage, Rainie vanished, leaving her husband Peter for good. Or so she hopes. Rainie re-locates to the quite town of Crystal Falls, Oregon where she takes a job as a bookkeeper for rancher, Parker Harrigan. Parker is everything Rainie could ever hope for in a man but her fear of trusting another man plus all the lies she has told Parker keep her from getting close to him.  It doesn’t take long for Parker to figure out that all is not what it seems with Rainie. When he finds out what her real story is, he’s furious, with Peter. Parker vows to protect Rainie but Peter is very determined to get Rainie back and make her pay for what she’s done to him.

Star Bright is a dramatic love story. Rainie’s abusive husband takes everything from her. Her fears and insecurities are well founded, but she fights back, and regains her life. Parker is almost too good to be true. He’s kind to animals, respects women, and comes from a big loving family. He has a strong catholic faith, and is a country boy through and through. One of the things I liked most about Star Bright is the ending. Rainie protects herself. Star Bright is old – fashioned, but a good romance.
