The Courage to Love
by Christina Tetreault
When Hollywood sweetheart, Mia Troy, checks into the Victorian Rose, the only things on her mind are rest and relaxation before she begins work on her new movie in Boston. That is until she meets Sean O’Brien, the co-owner of the bed and breakfast. From the moment she checks in, Mia is drawn to Sean, a reserved man who sees past her celebrity status.
Eighteen years ago Sean became the man of the house when his father walked out on the family. Without a second thought, he put his own hopes and dreams on the back burner and took care of his mom and younger sister. Now the co-owner of a successful bed and breakfast, Sean has accepted his position in life–until the day Mia Troy checks in.
Despite his better judgment, Sean can’t ignore his physical attraction to Mia. Soon he gives into his desire, telling himself all she wants is a quick fling to pass the time. As they spend time together, his feelings grow. But can love between a small town guy and an A-list celebrity ever last?

excerpt

Mia leaned closer cutting off the rest of the sentence with a kiss. He remained rigid against her even when she released his hand so she could circle her arms around his neck. She tugged on his bottom lip with her teeth, frustrated when he made no move to intensify the kiss. The only response she got was a set of hands on her hips. While his reaction should have discouraged Mia, it had the opposite effect on her. Men always responded to her and she planned to get Sean to as well.

Pressing her body against his until no space remained, she smiled to herself when she felt his breathing change. Then she pulled her mouth away and switched her attention to his ear. In response Sean groaned, dug his fingers into her waist and then pushed her away from him.

Mia’s eyes popped open. “What’s the matter?”

Sean studied her, his eyes a deeper shade of green now. “You’re a guest. That shouldn’t have happened.”

Why?” She took a step closer again and laid a hand on his cheek, not far from the bruise he’d earned at the block party.

Reaching up he pulled her hand away, but he held onto it. “It’s unprofessional and bad for business.”

With a laugh she took another step closer. “It’s only bad for business if you kiss everyone who stays here. I don’t see anyone else around.” She saw the indecision in his eyes, and by the way he kept looking at her lips, she knew he wanted to kiss her again. “I promise not to tell anyone about this either,” she said, her voice low and seductive. She kissed him again before he could argue.

review2

Mia Troy is an actress who just wants to escape fame and relax for a while. Sean O’Brian is the owner with his mom of a B&B in Boston called the Victorian Rose. Sean falls for Mia once he realizes she’s not your typical snooty actress. Mia is falling for Sean too but can they work everything out? With Sean Mia actually feels like a regular person not someone famous, she can be her real self. Will there be a HEA? Or is a long distance relationship between a inn owner and an actress impossible no matter how much they want it? Really liked this and hope to read more from this author. 4 fangs.

Reviewer for paranormal romance and authors that rock.

This book is part of a series but can be read as a standalone.

A lovely little romance that is well written and characters that you will fall in love with and hope to read about again.  You will be pulled into the story and wish it never ends.

Mia is a big-time actress and is feeling fatigued and decides to stay at a bed and breakfast for a month before filming starts, where they never give details out whoever stays.

Whilst there she meets Sean and starts to go out with him.  She still doesn’t know if she wants to continue acting or look for something else to do. Read on to find out if they will continue going out when she goes back at the end of the month.
