One rainy day in London, Wyoming man Kurt Bold walks into an antique shop off the King’s Road and straight into the dreams of its owner, Penny Rosas. Lively, spirited and imaginative, Penny takes this handsome stranger for a romantic cowboy straight from the pages of a book. Kurt certainly looks every inch the hero…but he soon brings Penny’s dreams to earth with a thump. His job is in the City, in the logical world of finance—and as far as Kurt is concerned, romance is just for dreamers. Events in his childhood have shown him just how destructive love can be. Now he’s looking for a wife, right enough, but what he wants is a marriage based on logic and rational decisions. Kurt treats Penny like he would his kid sister, but when he hires her to help refurbish his beautiful Victorian house near Richmond Park, it’s not long before he starts to realise it’s not just his home she’s breathing life into. The logical heart he has guarded so carefully all these years is opening up to new emotions, in a most disturbing way…
Never judge a man by his hat...... that is exactly what Penny does when she first meets the mysterious Kurt Bold. He walks into her Antique shop and her life, but this handsome cowboy is not all he seems.
Penny has a habit of jumping to conclusions and does not lose this trait throughout the story.
Kurt is rather mysterious and does not give a lot away. He is a very guarded character. Can these two characters have a future together. I urge you to read and find out.
I loved this romantic will they/won't they story. It has such a wonderful ending. It did have me thinking how things could have ended so differently.
4.5 out of 5 for me!
