Book Info

Released: July 17, 2012
Genre: Erotic Romance
Series: Whispering Cove #4
Pages: 110


I enjoyed the previous Whispering Cove anthology so I was really excited to read about the matchmakers again and their antics.  In this first short story they decide to pair up Vic Hayes with Hauk Michaelsen.  They’ve been friends their whole lifes. Vic has a crush on Hauk and has been with him, supporting him, during every heartbreak he’s had.  Now a widower and a single father, he’s been relying on her help with his daughter.

Of course with a little bit of meddling they are put in a situation where not only are they working together to find talented singers for the festival, but also some seeds are planted in Hauk’s mind about Vic dating someone else.

I wasn’t too happy about the fact that he never saw Vic as a woman but all it took was one comment about her having to go on a date after watching his daughter and Hauk was all over her.  He admitted that he wasn’t attracted to her before, consciously.  So if the attraction was there, which obviously was, then it was pushed to the back of his mind.

Still hot and still sweet, a cute romance with a hometown feel.  Sometimes I wish I could move to Whispering Cove!

About Nikki Duncan

Heart stopping puppy chases, childhood melodrama and the aborted hangings of innocent toys are all in a day’s work for Nikki Duncan. This athletic equestrian turned reluctant homemaker turned daring author, is drawn to the siren song of a fresh storyline.

Nikki plots murder and mayhem over breakfast, scandalous exposes at lunch and the sensual turn of phrase after dinner. Nevertheless, it is the pleasurable excitement and anticipation of unraveling her character’s motivation that drives her to write long past the witching hour.

The only anxiety and apprehension haunting this author comes from pondering the mysterious outcome of her latest twist.
