"Half Moon Hill" by Toni Blake

Trying to escape her troubled past, Anna Romo has come home to Destiny determined to carve out a place for herself. When she buys the old Victorian house on the hill with the intent of furnishing it into a Bed and Breakfast, she’s thrilled by the possibilities.

Ex-biker-gang member Duke Dawson is as much a fish out of water in Destiny as Anna, but he’s handling it fine until an accident scars not only his body but his mind. When Anna stumbles across him in an old cabin in the woods near her newly acquired house, at first she’s terrified. But they work out a deal - she’s willing to keep his solitary living arrangement a secret if he’s willing to help her with some of the heavy lifting at the house.

Working together on the rennovations, romance brews between Duke and Anna. That is, until war hero Jeremy Sheridan returns home in a blaze of glory and sets his sights on Anna. Suddenly torn between the outgoing and charming Jeremy and the intriguing Duke, Anna’s heart is torn between two paths and left with only one solution.

My review:
What a fantastic wrap up to the Destiny series. The story of Anna and Duke was a fantastic story of two lost souls looking for solitude, only to find it together. I loved how the story of the girl who used to live in the house was woven into, and used to draw parallels with Anna's and Duke's story. And the introduction of the quotes from "Phantom of the Opera" were all perfectly selected based on what was going on in Anna and Duke's story.

It was also great to catch up with Mike and Rachel and Tessa and Lucky and even Jenny and Mick and put a bow on their happily ever afters.

Anna and Duke learned together how to let another person into your life and how to deal with the struggles that life deals you. It was nice to see Anna begin to become part of the Destiny community and Duke, somewhat, through Anna. Duke may have said his feelings were casual but his actions showed so much more.

Toni Blake does a fantastic job of bringing depth of feeling to her characters and Half Moon Hill was no exception! I was pleased to see that Anna chose to rejoin her Destiny family and the community of Destiny. I want to move there!!
