Crossing the border into love.

Snap decisions and misguided ideas bring Portuguese national Mateus Fontes and businessman Crawford Hargrave together at the Canadian border crossing.

Mateus is caught in a catch-22. With his almost-expired tourist visa, entrance to Canada is denied, but the US won’t let him back in either. Crawford thinks he’s solved things when he tells the border agent they’re engaged, and it works—except now they have to actually get married before either of them can get back into the United States. But Crawford has been burned by marriage once, and he’s determined not to make that mistake again.


This book answers the question: “Can you find true love at a Canadian border crossing?” This is one of the latest in the Dreamspun Desires series.

The author took time to develop not only the characters but the story line. This is a well written and edited book that will give the reader the happy ever after ending we all look for in this series.

The premise of the book is interesting and reminded me of a damsel in distress when in comes his knight on a white horse to save the day. I found the series of events for the two characters reacquainting themselves with each other to be plausible throughout the story. I am also a sucker for the younger man bringing life back into a bit jadedolder men perspective.

I look forward to reading more by this author with her ability to draw you into the story a page at a time and wishing for it not to end.

This will please the readers of the Dreamspun series.
