Join Laramie Briscoe & Seraphina Donavan as they take you back to where it all started for their two most popular series!
Back to Basics features Liam and Denise of the Heaven Hill Series & Remembered features Vincent and Ophelia of the DuChamps’ Dynasty Series.
Back to Basics: A Heaven Hill Novella
Family Community Club Duties Responsibilities are time-consuming. They take hours, minutes, and seconds away from moments that could be spent strengthening relationships. When Liam realizes he and Denise have done precious little communicating and loving lately, he takes her on a little road trip with one goal in mind—getting to know each other all over again, body and soul. Amongst waterfalls, adult conversations, visits with old friends, and childless hotel rooms, they get back to basics.
Remembered: A DuChamps’ Dynasty Novella
After two years of marriage, Vincent DuChamps is more in love with his wife, Ophelia, than ever. Their life together is perfect… except for one thing. One dark, ugly secret looms over them and threatens everything Vincent holds dear. A lost night, hours that he can’t account for and waking up in a stranger’s bed, naked—the gaps in his memory and the fear that he did the unthinkable torment Vincent daily. But his worse fears are realized when photos from those missing hours fall into Ophelia’s hands. With his whole world hanging in the balance, Vincent knows one thing… whatever happens, he’s not letting go of her, even if she wants him to.
Review by: Jennifer
( 5 Stars)As a wife and mother, these two stories sort of hit home for me.
In Back to Basics by Laramie Briscoe, we join Liam and Denise a few years after marriage. With 3 kids, the club, and all their other things going on, their lives have just been on repeat. In real life we know this happens. Being so tired that you end up just falling into bed at night, waking up the next morning not feeling like you have had any sleep. Those of us that have these lives, totally understand. Its what you do to reconnect that makes it important and I loved how Liam made sure that he reconnected with Denise. This was a nice look into their love. LOL I see a massive reread of the entire series in my future.
Now I have never read any of Seraphina Donavan's DuChamps Dynasty series, but Remembered was amazing. Once again running with the theme of not letting your marriage take a back burner. Vincent DuChamps is about to have a wake up call, one that lets him know that he needs to keep working at making sure his priorities are with his wife and daughter. Not going into a lot of detail, not giving you spoilers.
I give this duet 5 stars. It was a nice short read, that was totally relatable.
