The Ocean Between by Lynda Coker

Financial executive, Victoria Ballard, is in the process of adopting four children when one of her father's business deals makes her a target of a terrorist group. As a result, her adoption plans are jeopardized, her career altered, and her life invaded by Prince Rashid Davar; a pig-headed, superior-minded despot, who just may be...the only man for her.

about the author:

Lynda Coker lives in the rolling hills of Northeast Texas with her husband of 45 years. Together, they enjoy the simple pleasures of life, good friends, good food, and the wonders and beauty of the world around them.After retiring from her secular career in Photographic Art, Lynda decided to embark on a new adventure, one she’d been thinking about for many years. An avid reader, she’d often wondered if she could write stories that others would find pleasure in reading, stories that were her constant companions as they tickled her imagination. Five years later, she realized her goal with the publication of PAYBACK IN WAYBACK by The Wild Rose Press., the Anthology, RETURN TO WAYBACK, and her newest release, THE OCEAN BETWEEN. Her favorite genres to write are Contemporary Romance and Sci-Fi with romantic elements. Along with her writing, she enjoys helping other authors expand their talent and promote their work through her social site, WRDF.

my thoughts:

As a little girl, you always hope that someday your prince will come. What you never think about is~ he might not be exactly who or what you thought he would be! That being said...

I loved this book! It made me really think how difficult life is for those that fall in love with someone with completely different cultures! I mean to learn to walk two steps behind someone, never look a man in the eye (when we are taught TO look someone in the eye) just to name the 2 major differences I would have a problem with.
This was a well written, thought provoking read. This book was easy to read from start to finish.
This is a book that will remain on my shelf to be re-read!

This book will be going on my tbr list.. It got me from the part where the herioine wants to adopt four kids.. I know a family who actually did this.. There was a family of 3boys and a girl and my friends wanted to take the little girl, but they could not seperate her from her brothers, so they took all four.. I admire people who will give of themselves this way.. There is a special place in heaven for these people and my friend Darlene's husband has I sure found this place.

Thank you so much for this lovely review. And, Kathleen, I guarantee that you will absolutely fall in love with the four orphans in this book, as Victoria did.
