Reclaiming His Bride
We jump the birth order of sisters to number 4, Lana. Guess, we'll catch back up to Rosemary later.
Lana's life is all about secrets, her marriage, her attempts at divorce, her pregnancy. Good thing she's a legitimate child of her father and wasn't a secret on like four of her sisters.
But secrets have a way of coming out and Lana's are no exception, esp. when her husband Blake can't hide his love for her.
This is a good take on how we see what we want to see, even when it's not true, and that time and perspective can straighten out our view. That's all Lana needs to do, even if she does fight it every step of the way.
The one secret that needs discovering is 'Who is the ghost?'. Sadly some will die before the ghost's true nature will be revealed.
Ms. Tullis weaves in some more suspense into this tale of romance.
It's a clean romance, seeing as Lana and Blake are already married, so nothing is amiss in their physical relationship in that regard. Their story may be my favorite so far.
But then, there's always book 4 to read!
Secrets rule Lana’s life. Her father’s death brought some out into the open, but she has a few of her own: 1) she’s been married to Blake for nearly a year—and trying to get a divorce for most of that time. 2) A moment of emotional weakness and too much champagne ended with her in her husband’s arms—and now she’s pregnant.
Blake hasn’t thought of another woman since they first met, though she believes otherwise. When Lana’s hotel-magnate father offers him the job of regional manager—and an office in the hotel Lana would be managing, Blake jumps at it. Keeping her attention when it’s split between her sisters, the ins and outs of running a resort, and the ‘ghost’ who’s been haunting the building isn’t easy. Learning about the baby convinces him to redouble his efforts though—he isn’t going to give up without a fight, and when someone comes after Lana, the stakes are raised again.
