Laine Carrington, Eric Gentry
With its breathtaking vistas and down-to-earth people, Thunder Point is the perfect place for FBI agent Laine Carrington to recuperate from a gunshot wound and contemplate her future. The locals embraced Laine as one of their own after she risked her life to save a young girl from a dangerous cult. Knowing her wounds go beyond the physical, Laine hopes she'll fit in for a while and find her true self in a town that feels safe. She may even learn to open her heart to others, something an undercover agent has little time to indulge.

Eric Gentry is also new to Thunder Point. Although he's a man with a dark past, he's determined to put down roots and get to know the daughter he only recently discovered. When Laine and Eric meet, their attraction is obvious to everyone. But while the law enforcement agent and the reformed criminal want to make things work, their differences may run too deep… unless they take a chance on each other and find that deep and mysterious bond that belongs to those who choose love over fear.

Eric isn't who I would have thought to but Laine with, from reading the previous book. In my mind I had her with the town doctor, Scott Grant. But from Eric and Laine's first encounter, you could definitely feel the chemistry between them. I just wish there was more interaction between Laine and Eric's daughter Ashley since the two woman are a major part of his life.

Aside from the blossoming relationship between Eric and Laine, I loved seeing the repair of Laine's relationship with her father. It was a very heartbreaking thing to see. At time I felt like crying right along with them. Her father really didn't have an active role in her life other than to express his disapproval of her. But seeing how their relationship turned around when her father opened up to her was enough to make it a five-star read in and of itself.

Of course the town and the people played a large part of the story. I really latched on to the story of Justin and his brothers, and I'm excited to see what becomes of their story. I was a bit iffy about Eric's friend Al, but I'm hoping he'll end up being a great guy. He and Ray Anne could be so great together if the get out of their own way.

As always, I'm packing up and moving into another Robyn Carr book! :)
