# 16 A Fool's Gold Romance
by Susan Mallery
Publisher: HQN Books
New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery's classic blend of lighthearted humor and intense emotional conflict works its magic on two newcomers to the California town of Fool's Gold, which Library Journal calls "a setting so real and appealing readers will want to start scoping out real estate."
Destiny Mills believes passion has its place—like in the lyrics of the country songs that made her parents famous. After a childhood full of drama and heartache, she wants a life that's calm. Safe. Everything that Kipling Gilmore isn't. Her temporary assignment with the Fool's Gold search and rescue team puts her in delicious proximity to the former world-class skier every day. Part of her aches to let go for once…the rest is terrified what'll happen if she does.
Though an accident ended his career, Kipling still lives for thrills—and a hot fling with a gorgeous redhead like Destiny would be a welcome diversion. Yet beneath his new coworker's cool facade is a woman who needs more than he's ever given. With her, he's ready to take the risk. But love, like skiing, is all about trust—and before you soar, you have to be willing to fall.
Oh How I love Ms. Mallery's writing style. This book swept me up once again in the little town of Fool's Gold. In Hold Me Destiny is a newcomer to the town and she has come to help train the town with her STORMS technology. What she didn't expect was to become a sister/parent to her half-sister Starr within 10 days of relocating. Although Kipling has not been in Fool's Gold that long himself he is starting to put down roots and decided to open a a new bar called The Man Cave. Not only does he have some competition from Jo's Bar but he can really feel the heat coming from Destiny. A great and sweet romance of sisterly bonding and maybe a little baby fever. I look forward to reading many more of Mallery's books. They just seem to have just the right amount of spiciness.
