Love runs wild at the Sagebrush Flats Zoo…

In a bid to revitalize his career, bestselling author Magnus Gray has come to Sagebrush Flats to write about the local zoo’s latest rescue—an orphaned baby polar bear. But Magnus dreads the drama of small towns and is bullishly determined to keep to himself.

June Winters is a people person, and delights in welcoming Magnus to Sagebrush Flats, though it seems unlikely she can get the handsome stranger to crack a smile. Then a mishap with an open gate forces Magnus and June to deal with a stampeding flock of fainting goats, an adorable but clingy polar bear cub, a cranky pregnant camel, and two star-crossed honey badgers. Never mind small town drama—the lively animals may just convince these two that opposites really do attract…

Do physical exercise that benefit that reproductive system in males unica-web.com india online cialis and induce natural energy. I am blown away by the wonderful writing, descriptions and dialogue, not to mention the amazing insight into zoo animal husbandry and the particular and interesting personalities of the zoo’s resident honey badgers, all found within the pages of Sweet Wild of Mine.

The author provided exceptional respect, care and consideration to a topic I have no knowledge of – speech dysfluency. There’s a naturally organic plot involving rejecting and accepting, hiding and being open to possibilities, fear and courage, with love and healing woven throughout. Ms. Kerr captured the heart of romance, the perfect balance of hopes and dreams among the landmines of traumatic pasts. In their own ways, both Magnus and June have broken pieces inside of them and they’ve dealt with them by means of various coping mechanisms, some positive and some stifling. The thing they have in common is not being complete, that something is missing but have no idea what it is or how to identify it. They’re pretty much clueless. Their first meeting was inflammatory and yet, it started something bigger and more profound than anything they could have imagined. My heart, emotions and feelings, were all engaged in this delightful and truly marvelous journey of love, forgiveness and discovery. I feel fortunate to have read this because it’s simply beautiful, fun, entertaining and charming.

Another strong element is the theme of family. Not all of it is good, especially on Magnus’s side, but most of it is, and it’s as real as it gets. I read so many scenes that I could relate to. June’s Nana reminds me of my aunt because they both are suffering the same kind of condition. What June is going through touched me deeply because my own family is starting that emotional journey, making those same heartrending decisions. It’s not easy or without pain and I could relate to June’s position on a more intimate level. The thing that touched me the most is how Ms. Kerr made sure that a reader felt the unconditional love June had for her Nana.

Magnus’s family situation is not only sad but when he revealed the truth to June, it was horrifying. The reveal was powerful, and June wasn’t the only person reeling from the enormity of what the hero lived through. I was also tremendously relieved that the hero experienced some level of reconciliation but I won’t reveal how, when or with whom. I’m just happy the author shared that with me.

The only advice I have to give about reading this novel is to have on hand a glossary of Scottish slang. I used the one from Wiktionary. The author was clever in her usage by having her characters utilize them naturally in conversation. I could guess on the meaning and more often than not I got it right. But there were some colorful ones I wanted to be sure of so I could enjoy all the nuances. I actually had fun learning some of them and found them so fascinating, I’m thinking of adopting a few into my own vocabulary.

I could go on and on about all the awesomeness that can be found in Sweet Wild of Mine, from the adorable polar bear cub, the camels, the secondary characters, and the sensual exploration between the sheets showcasing the physical side of Magnus and June’s love. Sometimes it was hot, other times sensual but at all times perfectly well placed and well written.

Romance readers are in for a solid treat, a memorable story and a remarkable and amazing romance between two characters easy to fall in love with. I enthusiastically recommend reading Sweet Wild of Mine for yourself.
