Published: April 25th 2022  (first published July 3rd 2013)

Publisher: Bailey Brown Publishing

Length: 354 Pages

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Colin McCullough has always been a man of devotion, and at summer’s end he will finally receive his Holy Orders. Samantha Dougherty never intended to cause trouble, but when she’s invited to stay at McCullough Mountain for summer break, she proves to be an irresistible temptation.

Hot summer nights lead to secret moments of seduction neither Colin or Samantha can resist. No vow of celibacy is without sin. Colin’s thoughts are far from pure, but his intentions to become a priest remain. What should have been a relaxing holiday with his family has turned into a trial of loyalty, lust, courage, sacrifice, and possibly love.

My Review:

Oh My God I loved this book. I can’t resist a book featuring (in this case almost) a priest. I really loved the build up. The couples resistance to their feelings. Colin’s battle with sticking to the path he chose a long time ago or following his heart.

I devoured this book in one sitting. I really enjoyed getting to know the McCullough family. They are very obviously Catholic with the many children, but they are not close-minded. At the end of the day family comes first.

This is a definite must read if you like a sweet romance with a hint of taboo.

I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
