A sweet old-fashioned girl

isn’t what Grant Carrington is looking for. A man who lives for speed and danger, he’s only slowed down because he’s been forced to by an injury. Carrie Harlow isn’t his type, but he needs her in order to heal. She knows she’s playing with fire, but she feels she can help him and she goes for it—even though she knows she’s endangering her own heart as she fixes his.

Recipe for Carrie's Chicken Picatta included.

Purchase from Amazon.

My Review: I really appreciate reading a cute, romance series that has been clean up. This is the story of the Carrington brother, Grant. He's a race car driver who suffered a bad injury and has returned to his hometown, although he's still estranged from his family. Carrie is several years younger and has returned home after completing school to become a physical therapist. She's trying to start up a practice and in a moment of desperation, informs Grant that he's her first patient.

Carrie is a very naive and inexperienced woman and feels that Grant is a danger to be around, just like a Big Bad Wolf (I loved that part!). She's also pretty stubborn and quick to assume. Yet, she sure is willing to give her heart away faster than she wanted to.

Grant ticked me off. He's very good looking and has all the conceit to go with it. He was pretty selfish, not seeming to care too much about anything but women, winning, and racing. I think deep down, he felt guilty about that kind of a lifestyle, but he didn't make much of an effort to change things. Of course, sometimes later, people grow up and change.

I wish Carrie would have been stronger at resisting Grant's charms. He would insist she jump and she'd ask how high. I can understand an intense attraction, but she seemed to sacrifice and give a lot more to the relationship than Grant did. There were, however, parts that had me smiling and laughing--it is a fun read! 

Content: very mild language (maybe 2); no violence; a lot of innuendo and talk of wild behavior, but it's mentioned in passing and not detailed, kissing. I would consider it clean for an adult reader.

A Little About the Destiny Bay Romances: Sweet Editions
From Author Helen Conrad

"The Destiny Bay Romances take place in the sort of beach town I've always loved--and now I live in one! But writing about beach towns came first and this series is centered on the rich, influential Carrington family living along the California Coast, and in Hawaii. These are good-looking, fast-driving, hard-hitting men and women whose impulses lead them into trouble every time--and inevitably to fall in love.

The original series includes language and love scenes that aren't, for the most part, especially harsh and explicit--but some of my readers from my years writing sweets for Harlequin as Raye Morgan have asked if we couldn't have sweet and clean versions--and I thought--what a good idea! 

These are basically the same stories...but with the conflicts softened a bit, the language cleaned up, and no explicit love scenes. There are still a few adult situations, but they're muted. Consider these the PG versions. 

I hope you enjoy them!"
