STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT (ISBN No. 1-4208-5666-9)
Kelly Winter is an American singer currently in Madrid singing at a friend’s club. The first time she sees Roberto Romano, Kelly knows she’s in danger of losing her heart. Roberto is sexy, good looking and it’s so clear to Kelly that he’s a womanizer. Every time she sees him, he’s with another woman. Even schoolgirls get weak in the knees whenever Roberto is around. Kelly tries to hide her jealousy and accept that she and Roberto will only be just friends. However Roberto isn't making that easy. All he has to do is look at her and Kelly yearns for all that can’t be. After her last disastrous relationship, Kelly can’t trust herself. It’s even harder to trust in Roberto when different women are continually around him. When she returns home and faces a personal health scare, Kelly can’t help but re-evaluate her life; she begins to doubt if she can have a future with Roberto after all.
Strangers in the Night is a sweet love story that readers are sure to enjoy. Both characters are likeable and realistic. Kelly is the type of heroine that has made mistakes in the past, but is striving not repeat those mistakes. She handles her health crisis in a remarkable way. It’s actually refreshing to read such a rational human response. Kelly allows herself to feel self-pity and rage against what is happening to her, and then she rallies herself for the fight for her life. The book has a good premise and I liked the story. Marilyn Spanier is a new to me author, but I look forward to reading more of her books.
