by Francis Ray
I will read anything that Francis Ray writes. She is one of my favorite romance authors. Some of her books, though, straddle the line between romance and women’s fiction. This is one of them.
If You Were My Man is about Nathalyia Fontaine, the proprietress of a popular restaurant that she started with her late husband. Since his death, she has put everything she has into the running of the business (and running from her past) with little time left for anything or anyone else. Likewise, Rafael Dunlap, a hostage negotiator, has made his career his main focus. Because of the dangerous nature of his job, he avoids serious relationships and marriage so he doesn’t hurt anyone. However, the two can’t deny the spark between them and embark on a romance that is threatened by circumstances from Nathalyia’s past.
Another winner from Francis Ray.
