A lovely, romantic, romance.

This was my first Amy Lane book, even though I've been intending to read her for some time. I'm so pleasantly pleased that I picked this to be my first Amy Lane. I have a big, dumb grin on my face that won't be fading soon.

I chose to read this because of my respect for Aleksandr Voinov's writing. I don't know if I had expectations for this story but I have to say that I was surprised to find something so sweet and sexy. Having just come off reading his Dark Soul series, I was still in dark, edgy and intense mode. Country Mouse is emotional to be sure, but in a delightfully uplifting way. Very satisfying.

Malcolm chuckled wickedly. "You, my American friend, are like a hidden landmine of sex appeal. I'm going to have to look out for you."
"Too late." Owen raised his face to to the unfamiliar smells, breezes, sounds of the city, enjoying them even more now that he knew something of it and it had become personal to him. "I've already exploded. You're caught."

My perception of Amy Lane's work is that she writes very sexy stories. Without question, Voinov is quite adept at turning on the steam. Together, they created realistic, intimate scenes that allowed for emotions to build, as well as drove the story onward. I appreciate when a love scene doesn't stop the story-telling.

He tasted like gingermint and chocolate kulfi and something stronger and more powerful, something like want and need, and Owen drank him in and gave him back, dying for him in the subjective three hours it took to get to Malcolm's door.

The two main characters are beautifully created and have wonderful chemistry. Normally, when I read such likeable characters I want more but I have to say, I am perfectly satisfied with the ending.

I highly recommend this to those seeking a completely fulfilling romance. Very enjoyable.
