The Baron (Loveswept, No 233)

The Baron (Loveswept, No 233) - Sally Goldenbaum Sally Goldenbaum is a new to me author. What better way to discover a new author than to start back at the beginning. The Baron was recently reissued as an e-book by the new Loveswept. It is a quick read. Perfect for an afternoon escape or a secret indulgence while waiting for swim lessons to end.

Nick and Halley were great characters. I loved the way Nick discovers love and how to open his heart back up through witnessing all of the open affection in Halley's circle of family and friends. Both Halley and Nick are wary. Coming from different backgrounds, they both have to learn how to meet halfway. I liked that their relationship built up over time and they became friends first. It made their HEA more believable to me. There is no real mystery here, the "secret" he is hiding is pretty easy to guess.

I definitely recommend this throwback. It's a sweet love story that will leave you with a smile on your face.
