TBR Challenge: Dancing in the Moonlight

Lieutenant Magdalena Cruz had come home…And though all she wanted was to be alone, infuriatingly handsome Dr. Jake Dalton—of the enemy Daltons—wouldn't cooperate. And she needed him to, because the walls around her heart were dangerously close to crumbling every time he came near.…

Jake had spent most of his life trying to get closer to Maggie, with little to show for it. But she was the woman he'd always wanted, and no injury in the world could change that. Now if only he could convince her that the woman who stood before him was beautiful, desirable, whole…and meant to be his.…

Dancing in the Moonlight has been in my TBR pit for at least two years. I don't exactly remember when I bought but it came from my local UBS store.

I have mixed feelings about this book. I enjoyed it, thought the plot was good, liked the characters, especially the hero...but the heroine, Maggie, got on my nerves at times. I found her strong and independent, but her feelings towards the Dalton family at times was ridiculous. And enough with the whining, please. I don't mind the occasional complaint, but come on now, yes, they did a great injustice to your family, move on already! Argh!

With that off my chest...I feel better. Ok, overall it wasn't a bad, far from it. It was a great story for a cold winter afternoon. You know type, cuddling in front of the fireplace and enjoying a nice book.

Hmmmm, I think at one point I had this in my TBR. It might still be there. Need to check. I tend to purge my unread Harlequins every year or so to weed out tropes that I'm "over" - and the "his/her family did my family wrong" is one that I'm pretty much done with.
