I love reading and as of now that is fiction only. Love all genres except horror and for the past few years, been gorging on romance. Thrillers are my first love and add some romance to it then all the more better.

No Reservations (Harlequin Temptation)

No Reservations (Harlequin Temptation, No 260) - Judith McWilliams Rating 3.5
I had heard some good things about this author's books so when I found one at the UBS and picked it up and it made for a short enjoyable read.

The heroine is driving and is tired and lost when she goes up to a full inn to ask for directions to a motel nearby but is mistaken for someone else and she wants to correct them but figures that the one they are waiting for won't arrive now and she can sleep and leave in the morning.

When she is sleeping she is shocked by the appearance of someone in her room and runs and knocks the room next to her and finds the hero John who can tell at once that she is not the real occupant of the room since her behaviour proves it, the inn is occupied by members of a mystery group and the guy who came into her room was a clue.

The heroine wants to leave in the morning but the hero convinces her to stay and finish the weekend, correcting the inn people at the time of billing and she agrees since she doesn't have any work to do. She is a lawyer that has been practicing family law for nine years and has just taken three months off to deal with depression and these feelings that have plagued her since a case when she helped a father get custody of his daughter and he ran, letting the heroine catch the wrath of the ex-wife and making her feel guilty since she never saw it coming.

The hero is there because he needs a change in life. He is wealthy but one day when he looked back he couldn't see any friends or any activities beyond his work that he enjoyed so he is trying to expand his horizons and these two help each other. After the weekend is over he decides to help her search for the missing father and while she would help him be less of a workaholic.

I loved the relationship and its progress, the hero was really OCD, cleanliness and constantly wanting to work while she shook him up and he tried to make her eat and sleep more while get some sense of comfort.

The book didn't feel that dated to me & I enjoyed the romance even though it wasn't always let's tear off our clothes.
