Par Lance

Par Lance is where I come to talk with my friends, mainly to discuss books. 

Par can mean at face value,and Lance is just me.


From the Oxford English Dictionary:

Stranded (Night Calls, #1) - J.C. Valentine This is a fairly pleasant story. It is not hot, gushing erotica. Rather, it is comfortably warm and moist.

A man falls asleep at the wheel, crashes his car, dices with death before escaping the wreckage, then makes his way to an isolated country house where is is more than adequately cared for by the sexy young divorced lady who lives there with her ferocious, soft-centered dog.

There are lots of sexual cliches, and the story is straightforward. I would have enjoyed it much more if it were not for the many errors in grammar, sentence construction and typos. For such a short book, the number of errors is inexcusable, and they distracted me from what would have otherwise been a smooth and enjoyable read.

The two main characters are likeable, and they deserve their brief interlude of happiness whether it is set to continue or not.

Perhaps a sequel would reach new heights, but this didn't really turn on my lights.
