Middlemarch Mates, Book Ten
Saber and Emily are longtime mates. Happiness has been theirs, until the tragic loss of their unborn baby.
Saber is desperate. Emily has shut him out, wallowing in depression. They inhabit the same house but his loving mate has withdrawn, and he wants his happy, matchmaking woman back. It’s time to up the ante. Armed with a bag of sex toys from his wild twin brothers and a tropical island setting, Saber is determined to seduce his mate to his way of thinking, to drive the blues away, and he won’t take no for an answer.
Although this story held the paranormal element of having a shifter as the hero, it was truly a contemporary read. The shifter element only added to the heat between the couple.
A truly haunting tale, a man and wife swim through their grief after losing their first child. The couple must find a way back from the pain and an escape is just what they need. On a deserted beach, one man will do anything to get his wife to put her suffering and grief behind her.
The characters will touch your heart and anyone with children will sympathize with this couple. Emotions flare, and the heat comes alive as he brings her back from the pain and teaches her to open her heart again.
I enjoyed this read and empathized with the characters. Sorrow can be beautiful if we learn from the heartache. Munro is a master at teaching the lesson.
