Another Destiny keepsake

Half Moon Hill Destiny ebook

Half Moon Hill Destiny ebook

Toni Blake has worked her magic again! I do think Anna and Duke might just be my favorite couple of the series followed closely by Tessa and Lucky. The pairing of Anna and Duke is a bit of an odd couple but Blake makes their romance work so very well!

Anna Romo has come home to a place she barely remembers. After having been gone from Destiny for many years, Anna is home to stay. We see how Anna is working to fit in but still holding back, not quite sure of her place in the Romo family. I liked how Anna was aware of her insecurities and her torn loyalties. There is also her need to not completely submerge herself in the small town but test the waters and ease herself into life in Destiny. It shows Anna's intelligence and maturity. I love reading about an intelligent heroine!

Duke is a hero with a bad-boy exterior and a heart of gold. At first glance, he's not someone you'd want to meet in a dark alley but once Anna, and the readers, get to know him, it's obvious he's a gentle and loving man with a little edginess that making his softer side that much more special. Duke is a realistic hero in that he doesn't try to be someone he's not but learns to like who he really is. He's certainly a favorite of mine!

With Anna and Duke living a fairly secluded life away from town, they are allowed to get to know each other with little interference from family and friends. Which is good since Mike Romo, Anna very overprotective brother, can be a real hardass. Anna and Duke don't completely forget about the people they care about but they have those uninterrupted moments, giving them time to get to know each other beyond what everyone else sees.

Blake's humor is certainly present not only in the romance but also in the friendships featured in the story. I loved catching up with previous couples. We see that life isn't always a perfect storybook romance instead it can be messy, frustrating and ultimately filled with ups and downs. But it's how you handle both the ups and downs that show the real person.

Anna and Duke's romance tests not only what they know of each other but what they know of themselves. This last book of the series certainly ended on a high note! I look forward to heading south to Coral Cove, Florida for Ms. Blake's next series slated for a spring 2014 publication.

    Half Moon Hill by Toni Blake is another moving story set in Destiny Ohio

    Anna Romo is slowly rebuilding her life after finally meeting her real family last year. Her world was shattered after the death of the woman who raised her but she is now getting to know her siblings and their wife's. Anna is throwing all her energy into rebuilding the home she bought into a bed and breakfast. But its hard doing all the work on her own. Her meeting of her brothers best friend in the woods near her home unsettles her plans.

    Duke Dawson is hiding out in a run down cabin on the edge of the property that Anna owns. He is trying to recover form an accident that took the life of a good friend. Duke just wants to be left alone to ponder what has gone wrong in his world. But running into Anna Romo certainly changes things. Next thing he knows he is helping her do the repairs on her home to get it ready to open.

    Anna and Duke spending so much time together repairing the house has them repairing their broken souls as well. Anna knows she has a long way to go to convince Duke that he is a man worthy loving.

    Half Moon Hill is a spectacular addition to the Destiny series. Toni Blake really turns Anna into a heroine worth routing for that she finds her happy ever after. Anna and Duke's romance is filled with searing passion as well as soul crushing pain. You just can't help rout for this couple to find their happiness.

  2. Love all of the Destiny stories. Especially Willow Springs but this really got to me - two outsiders comforting each other. Anna Romo coming back to the town she lived in many years ago, and Duke Dawson hiding out after experiencing a horrific crash. Anna is falling for Duke but he feels like he's not good enough for her. He decides to leave and Anna is heartbroken. Loved this story, love the town of Destiny!
