Synopsis from Goodreads:

Burned, Felix Sinclair has all but vowed never to get seriously involved with another woman as long as he lives. After a long day’s work, Felix is looking forward to getting back to his luxury apartment in the city. When he detours onto a road less traveled in order to shave off some travel time, the last thing he expects is to wind up stranded in a roadside ditch in the middle of a downpour–or to fall into the arms of a beautiful woman.
Recently divorced, jobless, friendless and utterly alone, Poppy Montgomery is struggling to convince herself that single life is what she wants–needs. Then a handsome stranger staggers into her life and sparks fly. Riding out the storm together, their instant connection seems like the perfect opportunity to explore a night of passion, but will one night be enough to satisfy their craving for one another?

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Stranded is the first in an interconnected series of erotic romance. Each book can be read as a stand alone, but you will find that each new character has been previously introduced in some way. As an introduction to the series, Stranded is a novella, but rest assured each new addition will be a full length novel worth sinking your teeth into.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

Valentine presents her story in a manner that you can relate to. This is a situation that you could plausibly find yourself in. And the characters don’t miraculously find themselves married after a whirlwind romance. It’s very refreshing to see a story like this. Not only that, but this story is quite well written. Valentine draws you in with her suspenseful and exciting storytelling. Everything is laid out clearly, plainly, and in an excitingly vivid manner. You can’t help but life this story with the characters. Now, I must say that there is very little character development in this novella, but that is part of its brilliance. The characters don’t know each other either. It’s the spur of the moment, unknown risks, and newness of the meeting that brings forth much of the excitement.
