The Cancer-Capricon Connection (Opposites in Love Book 4)

Join the authors at #MFRWHooks here  for some great excerpts. Mine is from the Cancer Capricorn Connection

She’s a Cancer and he’s a Capricorn. She has a secret she wants to keep but moments after they meet again, he realizes that her daughter is his, and he wants to be part of their life.

Memories of the past and her hurt brings Cate’s old anger back to the surface but Rick realizes what a fool he was in his single-minded desire to follow his dream. He now has the medical degree he desired enough to set his love for Cate aside. His guilt and her anger clash as they try to find ways to show their daughter how much they love her.

Genre – Contemporary Romance

First Line: Cate Rollins stood in the sun-filled kitchen of the house she’d rented and opened another box.

Cate Rollins lost Rick Somers when he drove to the west coast after their high school graduation. She thought he loved her, but he never returned…until 9 years later.

“Opposites” is a great descriptive word for Cate and Rick’s personalities. Ms. Lane Walters’ develops an excellent story-line between the two with even a few surprises. There’s more to Cate’s life than she knows and more to Rick’s than he knows – and when the two reconnect a firestorm shakes them both awake and rekindles the smolder. The story sends the reader into a battle of wills and will nots full of emotions from the past and the present, along with recreating tensions (sensual and anger issues).

If you’re looking for a fast-paced, quick read, this is an entertaining story with a happy ending, and I look forward to reading another of this series.

2019 Book Hooks

Cate Rollins stood in the sun-filled kitchen of the house she’d rented and opened another box. The cheery yellow walls and the dark oak cabinets made the large room seem cozy. Yesterday she and her daughter had arrived in mid-afternoon and blessed her friend for leaving most of the furniture. She’d brought little of the battered furniture from the apartment.
     The sound of children’s laughter flowed through the open window. Moments after their arrival, the swing set had been delivered and assembled. The August afternoon had been cool, a welcome change from the past week’s brutal heat.
     As she placed dishes on the shelves of the cabinets she hoped the return to Eastlake to take charge of the newly established Rehab Center had been the right move. Since her mother’s death when Maddie had turned two, Cate’s life had been filled with work, school and raising her child. Now she had returned to the town where she’d attended college. Four of her closest friends had settled here and she believed their presence was a plus. They’d come to the house to help her settle in.
     “Where do you want this?” Lauren, owner of the house, held a wok, the metal blackened from use.
     Cate pointed to a hook on the wall above the gleaming stove. “Here is good. Maddie and I make stir fry often, especially the chicken cashew recipe you taught the Gang.”
     Lauren laughed. “Do you make as much?”
     “I’ve managed to cut the recipe down so we only have to eat it for a day or two.” She folded an empty box.
      “That’s still my only dish. Thank heavens I’ve a housekeeper who’s a marvelous cook.”
     “Thanks for letting me rent your house while I look for one.”
     “Don’t be in a rush to buy.” Lauren winked. “Both Liz and I found our happy-ever- afters here. You could be next. There are several new doctors arriving soon.”
     Cate closed her eyes lest her friend see the sorrow and anger ever present in her thoughts. She’d lost her chance for a full life when he’d left ten minutes after the graduation ceremony ended without a goodbye. She hadn’t been able to tell him about the pregnancy and she’d been too angry to call him.
     “I’m content without a man in my life.” She smiled. “Maddie is great company.”
     “She won’t be with you forever.”

     “I know but right now I’m content.”

Love secret baby second chance stories.

Sounds like a sweet but emotional story. I like the idea of succeeding characters finding love while living in that same house. Nice connection for a series.

I like this excerpt very much! Can't wait to see who takes her into the future--although I think we know who it is. ;)

A secret baby, eh? That always makes for a load of complications.

Second chances are my cup of tea. Sounds like we'll see a little angst when he finds out the news.
