Winning his Heart (Marietta St. Claires, #2) by Lara Van Hulzen - Review

Michael St. Claire, a widower and single father, fears his heart could never make room for another. Between raising his young daughter Annalise and rebuilding his dreams as a race car driver, love isn't on his mind... Until feisty Franchesca shows up and changes everything.

With her mom's health failing, Franchesca needs extra income. An offer from Mike St. Claire to be his daughter's nanny is an offer she can't refuse. She has always dreamed of making it on Broadway and living in New York, but her immediate attraction to Mike challenges all she thought she wanted.

Mike can't deny his feelings for Franchesca, even with the risk of losing his heart again. But he doesn't want to stand in the way of Franchesca's dreams. Will his past and what she wants in the future tear them apart?

My Review:

Sometimes you read a book that makes you wonder if it was based on a true story.  This is one of those books.

Mike and Franchesca both set their dreams aside for different reasons.  Mike wanted to be a race car driver but when he lost his wife, he turned his focus on raising their daughter, Annalise.  Franchesca gave up her dreams of making it big on Broadway to care for her mother.  They meet when Franchesca’s car breaks down on the side of the road and Mike stops to help her.  Neither, Mike or Franchesca has any idea how their meeting on the side of the road will soon change both of their lives. 

I enjoyed this sweet story.  The author detailed both character’s stories and brought them together in a memorable way.  If you enjoy a good contemporary romance, I would recommend this book.  It’s a good reminder that sometimes your destiny is right in front of you.
