Many years ago, Daniel Clinton allowed
his one true love to slip through his fingers because he was
afraid of commitment while having the potential deadly threat
of being a law enforcement officer hanging over their
relationship. So, Daniel watched Rebecca become the happy
wife of his best friend/former partner, Michael Williams.
Several years later, a devastating tragedy stuck resulting in
Michaelís death leaving Rebecca a grieving widow with a baby
on the way. Daniel felt that the only way to protect and care
for Rebecca and her unborn child was by proposing marriage.
Will Rebecca agree to Danielís marriage
proposal? And, more importantly, how will she react when the
passion for Daniel that was once buried deep within resurfaces
with a deniable vengeance.
This book is about a Gentle
Yearning that never really died for either of the main
characters. Although Rebecca moved on with her life by
marrying someone else, she never completely let go of Daniel.
Somehow, Daniel had always remained a close friend and he was
there for Rebecca in her utmost time of need. While I found
the plot to be somewhat predictable, for I easily guessed the
outcome, I still took great pleasure in reading this novel.
Rochelle Alers managed to craft an excellent conclusion that
made me a little teary-eyed and had me smiling with glee.
And, letís not forget the heated passion shared between Daniel
and Rebecca. Whew! This couple definitely knew the art of
pleasing and how to satisfy their Gentle Yearning
for one another.
