The 39-Year-Old Virgin (Mills & Boon Cherish)
Claire is a take charge sort of woman and she has a knack for making you want to do things her way. Caleb is a good man, struggling with his loss, and though he loves his son very much, he's lost his connection. Claire shakes up his life and makes him feel again. Young Danny is a gem! He's the perfect character to show the grown ups the truths they are afraid to say aloud.
My only complaint besides the cheesy title, is I would have loved an epilogue!

That's something you don't see every day. Claire left the order because she felt that she'd lost her calling and begins teaching in her hometown. She encounters a man who she babysat as a teenager, Caleb McClain, whose wife died horribly the year before.
The 39-year-old Virgin
Ever since he's been a closed off man, struggling to see the value in living even though he's still caring for his 9-year-old son, Danny. Claire c The blurb on the back of this book intrigued me. Claire comes in to their life again and sort of strong-arms him into feeling things again and he eventually starts feeling things for her. This was, as I said, an interesting premise, and Claire's innocence and reluctance was different from the usual, since she's older and not completely naive, but she feels guilt for having sex before marriage as one would expect. It felt like there was a lot going on, what with Claire helping Caleb and Danny, Caleb trying to get over his dead wife and this aspect really wasn't explored deeply enough and Claire trying to get on with her life without being a nun another aspect that could have used more elaboration.
There towards the end though, with the view spoiler [ death of Claire's mother hide spoiler ] it starts dealing more with her reasons for leaving. And that was a fairly touching scene, had me choking up a bit, really. Kudos to an author who can do that to me. Feb 14, Ardie rated it did not like it Shelves: adult-romance.
I had to read a harlequin for my Genre's class. It was awful! I like Austen's and Heyer's romance novels because there is wit, great characters, and observations on society and culture of the time.
This harlequin was lacking all those elements. So glad this assignment is over!

For those of you interested in this genre and I promise I won't judge you Pink spines were a little less steamy, and white and I had to read a harlequin for my Genre's class. Pink spines were a little less steamy, and white and blue spines were relatively tame.
This is a blue covered book, and it was still to steamy for me. Nov 04, Rebecca Crowley rated it liked it. I loved the unconventional, brave tropes of an older woman with a younger man, an ex-nun, a year-old virgin heroine and no improbably pregnancy or insta-marriage. The voice was fun and warm, but the constant, at times paragraph-by-paragraph head-hopping made it difficult to really emotionally invest in each scene. Jan 20, Spinneretta rated it really liked it. It was a good romance, sweet, and easy to read. I might have preferred a more detailed ending Pink Angel rated it it was amazing Jun 08, Arabellavidal rated it liked it Nov 22, Rachel rated it liked it Jan 21, Sandra rated it liked it Oct 25, Kim rated it liked it Aug 17, Kim rated it it was ok Jun 21, Emily rated it liked it Jan 16, Readaholic Jenn rated it liked it Aug 19, Elli rated it liked it Feb 20, Knowledge solution.
