Charlie Harrington is a respectable man.
Mayor to his small, mountain town. Successful attorney. Dotting single father.
After one mishap in the past, he avoids scandal. Making everyone happy is his goal.
He’s nothing but content...and a bit boring.
Then one morning, he finds a beautiful woman in his bedroom, and his world turns upside down. His good guy side suddenly wants to be a little bad.
Janessa Cruz has been both a have and a have-not.
Ex-wife to someone famous, she’s now a single mother in hiding.
She just wants to go unnoticed. Quietly starting over in her forties is the plan.
Only she isn’t certain what she wants.
When a misunderstanding brings her face-to-face with the sexy town mayor, she can’t seem to avoid him, and being a little reckless never felt so right.
Another Harrington brother bites the dust, and he’s looking forward to getting all kinds of dirty.
4.5 Heart Review by Ashley
The Harrington's are back!! There is something so endearing L.B. Dunbar's small town series that I've gobbled them all up. And Silver Mayor is no exception.
From the first heated time Charlie and Jan met I knew these two were going to be dynamite...and I was right! I loved both of these main characters. Nessa for her strength and finding the courage to get herself and her daughter out of a bad situation. Charlie for his dedication to his daughter and town. They had both loved and lost. Badly. Publicly. They were both lonely. And when they were in the same vicinity, neither one could keep their hands to themselves.
Nessa and Charlie steamed it up all over town and then some. As compatible as they were between the sheets, and up against the wall and...you get the point...they also connected on a deeper level. It didn't hurt that their kids became fast friends. But Nessa didn't want to embarrass herself or her daughter. And Charlie had to save face in front of the town. Throw a few scheming and downright nasty exes into the mix and it was a recipe for the drama neither of them wanted.
Full of charm and steam and longing, Silver Mayor was completely addicting. Nessa and Charlie kept me on my toes. I loved the push and pull. The desire that I could feel pulsing off the page. The want they both had to be enough as they were. The way they found someone who would fight for and with them. The way they found true love in each other. And that ending! Gah! It was misty eyed and fluttering belly perfection.
About the Author
I’ve been accused of having an over-active imagination. To my benefit, this imagination has created over twenty novels, including the creation of a small-town world (Sensations Collection), rock star mayhem (Legendary Rock Star series), MMA chaos (Paradise Stories), rom-com for the over forty (The Sex Education of M.E.), and a suspenseful island for redemption (The Island Duet). My alter ego, elda lore, creates magical romance through mythological retellings (Modern Descendants). My life revolves around a deep love of reading about fairy tales, medieval knights, regency debauchery, and strong alpha males. I love a deep belly laugh, a strong hug, and an occasional margarita. My other loves include being mother to four grown children and wife to the one and only.
