Dumped by her boyfriend and burnt out by her job, Kate Hamilton has returned to Gospel, Idaho, where a Mountain Momma Crafters' original poetry reading is about as good as it gets on a Friday night. Then her first attempted seduction of a hunky stranger is completely rejected. So much for her self-esteem! It turns out that Rob Sutter, former ice hockey madman, owner of Sutter's Sports - and the hunky stranger who told her to get lost - has been more than burned by love and isn't looking for a relationship.

the story is nice and has some sparks. but the intimate scenes were too many and i had too fast forward often, not that I am prude but it was just getting old..for my (European) taste I do not understand why a romantic story cannot havf less sex scenes description and more witty dialogues.

The story is nice however I think its not necessary to describe the intimate scenes so explicitely - I got a bit bored and had to forward all the time. I liked the more recent books of fouls gold better - more interesting and sometimes almost a bit witty storys.
