EskieMama Reads Review: Double Review A SEAL's Vow by Cora Seton

A SEAL's Vow by Cora Seton





Blurb:

Navy SEAL Clay Pickett needs a wife, fast, or he’ll lose the model sustainable community he and his friends came home to Chance Creek to build. He’s got just the woman for the job in mind: sexy, sensitive Nora Ridgeway. Too bad she’s not interested in rushing to the altar. 

When Nora leaves her job as a school teacher to open a Jane Austen Bed and Breakfast with her friends—and finally get a chance to write her novel—she’s relieved to escape the escalating threats of violence from an unknown student stalker, and more than a little interested in the Navy SEAL who’s after her heart. But when trouble starts stalking her at Chance Creek, Nora begins to wonder if she’s left her past behind after all. 

Can Clay and Nora find a way to be together when everything is trying to tear them apart?

Guest Feature: James Lear author of The Sun Goes Down
When you start a book, do you already have the whole story in your head or is it built progressively? Of course I have the story in my head. Anyone who hasn’t planned the story before they start writing is an amateur, and not taking this seriously. Plans change as you go along, but you’d better have a very good sense of where you’re going, how you’re going to get your effects, cliffhangers etc. It’s about delivering something to the reader, not just indulging your own whims.
When and why did you begin writing? I’ve always written, ever since school. It never occurred to me not to.
When did you first consider yourself a writer? I was a journalist for years before I wrote a book, so as soon as I started getting paid for that I was a writer. Stephen King says that you can call yourself a writer if you publish a story and get paid for it, and you use that money to pay a bill. That sounds about to right to me.

From Fake to Forever by Jennifer Shirk





Blurb:

Sandra Moyer’s preschool is struggling, so when her sister suggests allowing a super-famous actor to research his latest role there, she reluctantly agrees. Except the actor turns out to be Ben Capshaw—a playboy who’s never serious, always joking around, and who knows zero about kids or being a parent. Case in point: his involvement in the untimely death of the preschool’s class pet…

Ben is enjoying teaching more than he thought he would, but that doesn’t mean he’s looking for a permanent position. Sure, he’s ready for more serious movie roles and less goofing off, but the buttoned-up, beautiful Sandra and her young daughter are more than he bargained for. Plus, Sandra still won’t trust him—what if it’s all an act, research for the role? As the lines between make-believe and reality blur, Ben will have to decide if love is worth casting aside the role of his life for a new role…that could last a lifetime. 

Previously released as The Role of a L…

PR specialist Miriam Ashley makes her living cleaning up bad boys. Mountain climber-turned-CEO Jason Sanders should be an easy fix. And with a nephew to care for, he’s motivated. The problem? Every time she tries to help Jason get his head in the boardroom, they end up in the bedroom.

She’s not going to open her heart to a guy who could disappear at the drop of a…well, she’d rather not finish that thought.

She needs to leave complicated alone, but every time she sees Jason, something tells her it’s her who might fall…

Texas Ranger Bryce Johnson. Kylie Scott, two great characters. Bryce promised Kylie he would take care of her, protect her. And dang it if he did not.
The book had a great story line, fast paced to the point that I could not put it down, because I needed to kno…

Xander Evans has been on the road for many years. Never settling. Always moving from one place to another, unable to let go of his past. He lived a tragic childhood, spending most of those years in foster care. He's never felt like he's had a home. That is until he stops in the small town of Truman Valley, Missouri, where he meets a woman who will change everything he's ever known.

Paige Watson has it all. A loving family, beautiful home, and a great career. The only thing she's missing....is love. After escaping an abusive relationship, she opens her heart up to a stranger. He is unlike any man she's ever met. He came into her life and turned it completely upside down. Everything is perfect. That is, until one fateful night.

A night that would send Xander away to prison for life.

Levi and Sarah, both hurt by their childhoods past, he from an abusive mother and no knowledge of his father, and she having lost her family when she was 8 at a fire that killed every member or her Family. 
Thrown together they start something that neither had ever thought possible, to love someone, Levi always avoided such a relationship due to his past and Sarah felt she was not worth a man such as Levi, but love had other ideas for them. Great book just as good as the other two books, looking forward to reading more of Car…

Better To Have Loved by Christy Nicholas




Blurb:

Julie was on an adventure. But when she found herself alone and pregnant in a foreign country, she needed to make some hard decisions.

Based on the true story of my parents' love, this was the story that inspired me to start writing novels.


Review:                              5 Stars

Am trying to find words to describe this book and how it made me feel. This is the story of Julie, Kirsten and Paul. This truly is unlike any story I have read before. A gentle story spanning decades as told by Julie. Her adventures and her love took me down a gentle flowing river, through her memories and then also through her daughter now a grown woman herself.
Her life trip took us from the States to Europe and back to the states, the ending was as sweet as a summer peach and made me glad to have read the book.

I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review!
