Hoping to take the magic of the island and move it to the mountains with the Abbot family, purveyors of the odd and hard to find relics of a time long gone by in small-town Vermont. Hope you'll come with me to the Green Mountains! Watch for the first book in the series in early 2014!
The family-run Green Mountain Country Store is cherished by locals as a reminder of simpler times. The Abbott children are determined to keep it that way—but their father has different plans…
When Cameron Murphy heads to Vermont to build a website for a new client, she imagines a more relaxing trip than she gets. After wrecking her car by colliding with the town moose, she meets the most handsome hero she’s ever seen. Unfortunately, her savior, Will Abbott, is also the son of her client—and he wants nothing to do with the new website or the city girl creating it.
For all Will cares, Cameron can march her fancy boots right out of town and out of his family’s business. But he can’t seem to get her out of his head. As his family’s dispute heats up, so does the chemistry between the two, leaving them wondering if simple is better after all—especially when it comes to matters of the heart.
All You Need Is Love is such a lovely small town romance. It captured my heart and made me wish I lived in Vermont!
Cameron is on her way into Butler, Vermont to pitch a website design to the Green Mountain Country Store at the request of Abbott family head Lincoln. Unfortunately, none of his ten kids are on board with propelling the store into the modern times with online commerce. They all believe the store is doing just fine the way things are. Cam desperately needs to land this job in order for her company to survive, and is determined to give a great pitch. She never counted on falling in love with the quaint town, charming and family or Will Abbott. Will Abbott is ruggedly handsome, supremely thoughtful and firmly entrenched in his life in Vermont, running the store with his family. Cam can’t resist this caring and sexy man but how can things ever work when she’s bona fide city girl? Her business, friends and father are all in New York so Cam’s afraid to give into her intense attraction, fall hard and then go home nursing a broken heart.
Will has loved and lost a girl to the city before and isn’t eager to repeat that experience, but Cameron is too tempting to resist. She’s so different from the spoiled city girl he thought she would be, and the fact that she sees the rare beauty of his close knit family and the business they’ve put their heart and soul in, touches him to the core.
I adored this romance! I’ve read a few small town romances that were a little disappointing lately, but All You Need Is Love met my expectations completely. A small, beautiful town I’d love to escape to with friendly faces, delightful and quirky secondary characters and a big loving family I want to be part of were just a few of the things that charmed me. Will Abbott tops my list: he’s kind and chivalrous without even thinking about it, and loves his family fiercely. No wonder Cameron was a goner! Cameron was pretty wonderful as well. I’m happy that Ms. Force didn’t write her as the typical snooty city girl who learns what’s important by coming to a small town. Cameron already knew the importance of good friends and a supportive family even though she was definitely lacking in the family department.
I loved that Will and Cam didn’t let the obstacles they faced blank out the possibilities, rather they let love in and worked things out.
“If you fall in love with me, Cameron Murphy, I’ll never let you go.”
Each was willing to make a sacrifice to make things work. And wow! Their romance was steamy! Lusty kisses and more made my pulse race!
All You Need Is Love is an “opposites attract” romance that is sure to capture and warm your heart. After you finish be sure to read the free short story with Will and Cameron you can find HERE.
Seeds for several different romances were planted. Let’s face it, with ten Abbott children there’s a lot of potential, but Hannah Abbott and Nolan are up next in I Want to Hold Your Hand which I plan on devouring soon.
