Review of Shattered Dreams by Laura Landon

Synopsis: "Brentan Montgomery, Earl of Charfield has one love - his stable of Arabian horses. When he is offered breeding rights to the Marquess of Fellingsdown’s prize Arabian, El Solidar, if for two weeks he acts as companion to Fellingsdown’s sister, he doesn’t care if the reclusive Lady Elyssa has three chins and a dozen hairy moles, the prize at the end is worth anything he has to endure. But when he meets the elusive Lady Elyssa Prescott, all thoughts of gaining a prize Arabian colt disappear. He realizes he’s met the woman of his dreams - if only he can keep her from discovering the deceit that brought them together and convince her that her imperfections don’t matter to him.

Lady Elyssa Prescott knows what it’s like to be ridiculed and shunned. But when Brent Montgomery lets her glimpse a world where her limitations aren’t important, she believes it’s possible for her dreams to become a reality. Until she discovers the man with whom she’s fallen in love was ‘hired’ to offer her everything she’s always dreamed of having.

The cruel reality of a love built on deceit shatters both their dreams and threatens to destroy their lives forever."

My Review: Wow, Shattered Dreams will send your emotions rolling, your heart fluttering and the tears flowing. It sucks you in within the first few pages with beautiful descriptions and fantastic characters. You can't help but care about every character and fall especially in love with Elly. I was drawn in by the Arabian horse element which quickly fell to the back burner as I dove into the story. You see how misunderstandings and assumptions can destroy hearts and lives and how love can sometimes mend those. I really can't wait to read more of Laura Landon's books!

My Rating: This is definitely a Four Paw book for me!
