A Short Story Romance
When Sterling Chandler met his wife a few years back, his happiness felt complete – until a mistake came between them and turned their steamy love into a frozen sea of agony. On the brink of divorce, the two decide to take a brief vacation – away from each other. It is a time to evaluate their marriage, and decide if there is anything left to salvage.
Distraught and lonely, Sterling chooses to spend the next five days in a small ski resort town in Colorado, hoping that the cold mountain air, friendly people and daunting slops will help clear his head. Unfortunately, his head quickly gets muddled when Hanna, the Inn Keeper’s stunning daughter, is asked to be his ski instructor. It’s a temptation he didn’t realize he would face and one he really doesn’t need right now… one that is made worse by Hanna’s obvious curiosity and interest.
The next five days will test Sterling in ways he can’t imagine – and make him question everything he thinks he ‘knows’ about his life, and heart.
The "Innkeeper's Daughter" is a short and passionate read but it couldn't completely convince me. Despite all of the passion and the steamy encounters it lacked some feeling.
I didn't feel the closeness and the power that drew the heroine and the hero to each other and that would make their lovemaking something more than acts of adultery.
As the marriage was already in shambles and the hero owned up to his mistakes afterwards I could accept their actions but especially the heroine more often than not reminded me of her rather young age by the way she acted.
And, well, I was a bit astonished at the end and I was not very impressed by the way the hero handled things afterwards, just saying.
Nice, steamy scenes and a nice read but not one of the best books I ever read.
