The Shelter of His Arms

J. Adams

From back of book

     Lani and Chrispin have hidden their feelings for one another for years, but when they are finally free to express their love, both are afraid to cross the line that has always been there. Lani's battered heart needs to heal. Will Chrispin's love be strong enough to heal it? And will Lani have the courage to embrace the passion she has longed for now that it is hers for the taking?

     The Shelter of His Arms is the first emotion-driven romance in the Passionate Hearts Novelette series.

     Lani, is finally released from an abusive marriage to Tom after five years when he dies in an airplane crash.  She does not know what real love is and aches with every fiber of her being to find it.  She loves another but cannot tell him.
     Crispin is an older man...a man who had been Tom's best friend.  That is until he found out about the abuse.  He was also in love with Lani but had kept his feelings hidden for years.  He didn't feel Lani could ever love him.

     Once I found some peace and quiet, I really enjoyed reading this novelette.  It was a great short story about two people who had been in love with each other for years, but were afraid to tell each other.  Each had their own reasons, reasons that were keeping them from true happiness.  Would they be able to overcome their inner struggles and finally find each other?

     Once again Jewel has kept her story within moral parameters which I appreciate as a reader who looks for this.  I would recommend this book to young adults and older especially if you like something that is clean romance with just a tad bit of spice.  Well done once again Jewel.

I was provided this book for review at no compensation by J. Adams

Jewel loves hearing from her fans, so if you would like to contact her to tell her how much you love her books or give her sympathy for the fried brain, or suggestions for the hair loss problem (for her
husband, of course) contact her at
