Angel's Rest: An Eternity Springs Novel

Emily March, Ballantine, $7.99 mass market (336p) ISBN 978-0-345-51834-7

This irresistible novel, first in March's Eternity Springs contemporary series, grips the reader's attention in the first few pages as an abandoned, injured dog saves the life of Gabe Callahan, whose deep-seated pain can only be healed by love. Gabe brings the dog to the Colorado town's big-hearted veterinarian, Nic Sullivan, a woman of grace and beauty who stitches up his wounded heart with all the care she lavishes on the hurt animal. Both have a hard time believing that fate has brought them together, but as Nic points out, "It is weird, but we do weird here in Eternity Springs." The novel's erotic scenes have a veiled, romantic touch, and March (a pseudonym for bestseller Geralyn Dawson) displays a special talent for characterizing the close bonds of female friendships. As Nic and Gabe's lives grow suddenly complex, a special troupe of women rally around the lovers and keep them headed toward happy-ever-after. (Mar.)
