Jack Tyler comes to small town Millersburg, with a past in acting and directing her offers to help the small community theater group. What he didn't count on was schoolteacher Molly Brighton. The attraction is intense for the both of them. Fight it they will. With Jay working behind the scenes to get these two together they never had a chance!
What a great romance story! This is book 3 in the (Millersburg Quartet). Right away the reader is captured with such stunning and masterfully written words I was swept away. I had to read this at 1 sitting didn't want this to end. I laughed and I cried, then I did a fist pump! I highly recommend this book, just curl up and enjoy!

I really like the premise of the book, being a recovering theater geek myself, and it’s obvious that the author knows how a production runs. The plot device is a pleasant change from the typical romance novel plots out there (though I love those…). The main characters are likable and suitably developed for a light read.
The Three R’s
Rating: X For some wicked hot sex scenes. They’re not overly elaborate, and not full-on erotica, but the descriptions are vivid and will definitely raise your blood pressure.
Recommendation: This is a pretty straight-forward romance novel and tends to follow the archetypal route. If you want a light romance with some steamy sex scenes (you can tell that this author also writes erotica) without feeling totally awkward for reading something dirty, give it a read. If you’re a theater geek, recovering or otherwise, you’ll really appreciate the author’s knowledgeable descriptions of acting in a Community Theater production.
Re-read: Unless theater really really turns you on, you can probably pass this one on to a friend when you’re done. Just not your mom or grandma or anyone that you don’t want to picture getting all hot and bothered, because those sex scenes will send you right out of the kitchen and into the bedroom. As in get out of the kitchen if you can’t stand the heat – and then go to the bedroom where you can do something about it!
