Sara Lander was back in town. She had big plans for her inheritance, along with her freshly printed business degree and years of experience in some of Seattle's finest bakeries, she has a rich idea for Pride. Sara's Nook is going to be the next biggest thing to hit town. All she needs now is to steer clear of the hunky ex-Navy SEAL who is hell bent on taking all her focus away from starting her own business.
Allen Masters has been living in Pride for several years. Setting up a new branch of the Coast Guard and training all the new recruits took years of skill and all his patience. But when he sees the black-haired beauty, who had come back into town, he realized she was the one he'd been searching for. Taking one taste of her sweets, he knew he'd be in for a sinful time, but losing his focus while flying into the eye of a storm was the last thing he could afford.

I thought this was a lovely read, about love, finding your way, stalking, coming home, and to top it off suspense, mystery and romance.
Sarah comes home to her hometown to get away from a stalker. She wants her life back, she is coming back to a small town where she was raised, with people who have know her since birth there she will find open arms, friends and her family love. She has spent her life working for other and wants to live her dream of opening her own bakery. She opens Sarah’s Nook where she bakes like a dream her food is to die for. Her dreams are coming true just a few things get in her way. One ex-Navy SEAL and one stalker she thought she left behind.
When Allan comes walking into her life and rocks her world she just isn’t ready for this nor does she have the time for romance. She must get this bakery off the ground and find out who is stalking her. Why this person has followed her, what could they have in store for her and what could they want from her? Every time she turns around he is there, helping her, and the attraction is strong. Is this something she can afford to walk away from?
Allan is an ex Navy Seal turn to Coastguard with a sweet tooth not only for Sarah baking but for Sarah herself, he has his own ideas one look was all it took to know she is the one just as he knew the little town of Pride was where he would live. He isn’t giving up, no sir, he will get this one lady if it is the last thing he does. He makes sure he is there every time she is in need, this stalker has him worried but no way will he get her for he is her one man savor no way no how will anyone get to her they will have to come through him first.
The town of Pride is where everyone would want to live it’s a town full of love and friendship. Everyone knows everyone, they step in to help as needed. It’s a town full of love, hope and dreams where when you are down on your luck there are no question ask they step up to the plate and give what is needed. I so want to move to Pride Oregon and be wrapped into the love of these wonderful characters. I loved the plot where you just never know what is going to happen. The author spins a wonderful tale of suspense with wonderful touching character that will leave your heart filled with warmth.
This book was so believable from the beginning to the end. Allan steals your heart when he brings home Beast his new puppy. He puts him down for the night but the dog wasn’t having it. Allen said okay you can come out and watch TV but you are going right back when it is over. He puts the dog back down for the night, goes to bed and ends up going back down to let the little one sleep with him. He tells him fine, but this is a one night stay tomorrow you go back to your room and bed. RIGHT like that is going to happen. Beast is a wonderful dog you will love, he serves and protect. There are a lot of places this book made me chuckle and Beast was in quite a few of them.
I loved Sarah she was strong and determined she isn’t going to let anyone get in her way including a stalker. Allan is a true military man with strong principals, he is sexy as hell, strong, caring, loving and will help Sarah with any problem she has including tracking down a stalker.
Oh my the ending is to die for, you are going to totally love this ending. The cake she made for Allan for Valentine’s day is just outstanding, I can still picture it in my head. I have never read anything from this author before I liked her style so much that I have bought a few other of her books. I look forward to reading more wonderful tales in the near future. If you are looking for a fast read that will warm your heart all the way to your soul this is the book for you. I highly recommend you go pick your copy of My Sweet Valentine: A Pride Series Novel today.
Another great addition to the Pride series. Great storyline with wonderful characters. Excellent narration. I definitely recommend it and all of Jill's books.
"Sweet story with suspense, worth the listen!"
Easy story, likable characters, does not take a lot of time.
Alan. He was a great leading man character. The tall dark and handsome hero. He wa always in Sarah's corner.
This would not be a book to make a film from. good story but there needs to be more to it for a movie.
Without giving anything away to future listeners I feel this book is a good one in the series but more could have been done with the conflict. It was made to seem more than it turned out to be. That was a little disappointing.
