New Romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Claudia Connor ...

How many times can you be unlucky in love before you decide it's not luck, it's you?

With her ex-groom's words, I'm in love with someone else, still ringing in her ears, Clare Franklin flies off alone to her would-be honeymoon. Forced to accept not everyone gets that happily ever after she's always dreamed of, she's done with men. Until she gets tangled up, quite literally, with one sexy veterinarian.

The only thing Dr Deacon Montgomery wants is to share his surgical expertise and get back to his two year old twin daughters. But, the connection he feels with Clare highlights just how alone he really is and makes him wonder if he can be more than doctor and daddy.

Long talks and moonlit walks under the rustle of palms has Clare thinking maybe she gave up on love too soon. Until one phone call from home changes everything.


My Thoughts:
Love at Last starts out as Clare is basically left at the altar, although her heart isn’t broken her confidence is finding love is. She goes on her honeymoon alone and stumbles upon Deacon, a sweet, handsome veterinarian there for a medical conference.  With Deacon Clare feels all the swooning and heat she never felt with her ex.  They spend exciting days of exploring the island and a few steamy nights together before circumstances unexpectedly tear them apart. Can the new intense feelings overcome all the real-life drama?

I loved this story! I’m a huge fan of Claudia Connor’s romances! Deacon and Clare have such a profound connection on the island, and I was hurt when they were torn apart.  I must say my least favorite time in the novel was the time they spent apart wondering if they would ever see each other again, or if what they felt was real.  Poor Clare! Although they both were cheated out of things by the circumstances, Clare had to go through so much alone, and again wondering if she could trust her judgment in men. I loved that Deacon was so determined to mend Clare’s broken heart and trust again once they were reunited.  He was such an absolute gem!  Deacon didn’t do anything wrong and he was a victim of circumstances, too, but I still felt really bad for Clare.

Claudia Connor always writes the dreamiest male heroes!  Men with a protective streak a mile long, and loving dads that will melt your heart!  Clare and Deacon had a bumpy ride on the road to love, but the journey was well worth it!
