I do believe Kathryn Fox enjoys writing about Mounties, that fearless group of men in scarlet coats. This is the first book in a new series, and a second series of stories about Mounties within a very short time. Adam is one of those fine Mounties and Reunion is his and Laurenís story.

Adam has a heart of gold, always looking out for those around him; he is stubborn, determined and loves Lauren. Adam receives the news that his new assignment was an outpost that is not fit to bring a wife. So on their wedding day he breaks the news to Lauren and the wedding does not happen. He loves Lauren but does not want to bring her to a territory that is just trying to be settled by the Mounties. Adam thinks he can live without Lauren - that is until she writes him saying she is coming to get married.

But Lauren is a daughter of a Mountie and knows the conditions, promise and the loyalty that Adam has sworn to do - which makes her love him all the more. Lauren is strong when she needs to be, gentle, and just as stubborn and determined as Adam.

Going into the story you know they love each other, but Adam, like being any alpha male, thinks he knows what is best for Lauren. Lauren is aware of the hardship she would face when she joins Adam and thinks she would be able to face anything that came her way as long as Adam was with her. They have many struggles along the way, together with a fear that Adam did not want to happen - but it did. After the crisis, they both hurt each other with words. As a result, they could not seem to bridge the gap those hurtful words had caused.

Ms. Fox gives Adam and Lauren a reunion that they will not forget. Their reunion brought Adamís fear to the surface for them to face and confront it they did, with flying limbs! There are a few other characters in the story that we will be able to visit over the next couple of books, like Duncan MacLeod, a fellow Mountie. His story will be told next and one I am looking forward to reading it, and hopefully catch up on what has happened to Adam and Lauren.
