In her newest release, He’s No Prince Charming LuAnn McLane explores what happens to people who have been at the height of career success only to have it suddenly go away.
For teen pop queen, Dakota Dunn success went away simply because she aged and the music market changed. She goes home to Willow Creek Marina to not only lick her wounds, but to hopefully find the inspiration to kick start her career.
Champion bull rider, Trace Coleman had one too many injuries to be able to continue. As a down on his luck cowboy he was hired to run the marina. The small town environment is prefect for him to hide away in. The only question now is with the arrival of Dakota will Trace be able to continue to hide from people forever?
He’s No Prince Charming is in my opinion not Ms. McLane’s best work. While there is definite interest between the main characters is the secondary characters, Grady and Sierra who really seem to light pages on fire.
I have loved and laughed over previous titles by Ms. McLane, but felt as though He’s No Prince Charming was a bit hotter than previous titles and that the humor in the beginning was too forced. That being said the last fifty or so pages appeared to be vintage McLane. When the last page was turned and the book set aside even though I didn’t’ read a keeper I was left very satisfied.
