Enchanting Reviews Loves SANDEFLAY!

Let’s meet Collin First, a man quite unlike some of the men you would meet today. A man who takes his job very seriously; some would say too much so. Unless of course you are from his plane of existence and his job could save the world and does every day. For you see, he is an Extinguisher and they have to have their mind on their job at all times. Because there are things that come into our world through Ducts from his world that could destroy us all. But it would seem Collin has become a little preoccupied with a young woman from our world named Miranda. And he thinks he has fallen in love with her - something his world forbids, but he will try all in his power to stay with her even if it costs him his life.

Let’s meet Miranda Sayers, a young woman who has been confined to a wheelchair most of her life. Her grandmother has had to go to a nursing home and Miranda has been left on her own. And that is something she cannot cope well with. She has always wanted to be like other young women - have a job, get married, have children; but it is only a dream to her. Something so far out of reach she can only dream. Then one day she looks into the hazel eyes of Collin and her world is turned upside down.

This is the story of two young people always looking for just a little more out of life even though they think it will never happen. Collin has a job that requires all of his attention and Miranda, well, all she knows is the wheelchair under her legs and thinks that is all anyone will ever see, not the young fierce heart that beats there; never dreaming that Collin might actually look at her in a romantic way. But he does and their worlds are going to be turned upside down, and the adventure of a lifetime is beginning for Miranda. For you see, Colin is not of our world.

I loved this story. It had the entire heart-string-pulling you come to expect from Ms. Mooney, but always with a little something extra. She never disappoints her readers. I really loved the characters and the way they were drawn to each other. I loved Collin’s pet and you will too. I loved all the character development in this story and I hope we get more stories from this world about other Extinguishers and their lives. I always come away from a Linda Mooney book with a little tear and a few stars in my eyes for her books are what romance is made of. People that truly care about one another and not just sex but there is that too but it is done in such a way that you just feel the love between the characters and wish them well.

Now a little about our author, Ms Linda Mooney. She is married with two sons and is a kindergarten teacher. She has taken a lot of her time to write us these fantastic novels. She has written for several publishers and for Whiskey Creek Press Torrid. She has had three best sellers in the past few months and is even writing more as we speak. And she has received a new contract for more of her books and I cannot wait to get my hands on them.
