My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh my goodness Ms. D. did you kick off the third season of Corbin’s Bend or what!?!?!?! I absolutely LOVED His Damsel in Distress and know without a doubt that I will be rereading it. As a full-figured gal myself, I connected to Zinnia immediately. I felt badly for her that she was forced to change her name and move because of a stalker, but at least she found a wonderful community to move to. As Brent pointed out later in the book, what better place to hide out from a stalker than a community filled with highly observant Alpha males? Yep, Corbin’s Bend was the best place for her to go. And the fact that its namesake happened to move to the community within a week of her just made it that much better.

The opening scene of His Damsel in Distress is a heartbreaking introduction to Corbin Nelson, the man that Brent named Corbin’s Bend after. Corbin has to watch his wife of 17 years die as he gives the order to have her removed from life support. I was so glad that Brent was there to console Corbin because when he broke down, I just wanted to hold the man while he cried. Thankfully Brent’s support didn’t end at the hospital and he was able to accompany Corbin to the lawyer’s office to go over the will. And boy did he need Brent’s calming presence when he learned that his wife had been stealing money from him for years – I was angry for him. While we weren’t subjected to the full contents of the letter she left him to read upon her death, the parts that were shared were absolutely wretched. I was so relieved when he told Brent he was moving to Corbin’s Bend because that man needed his friends and a fresh start.

One of the many things I liked about the book is that we get a chance to know Zinnia and Corbin as individuals before they get involved. Despite coming to Zinnia’s rescue and having a hard time getting her out of his mind, Corbin does not immediately seek her out and vice versa. They each took some time to get settled in their new homes and the community before their first date. As neither is looking for a relationship and both want to be more than “just friends,” their relationship takes on a comfortable feel that made watching it progress quite enjoyable for me. Their chemistry is intense yet fun, which made for some really great sex scenes that got even better as they began to fall for one another. Despite my enjoyment of their superb sex life, my absolute favorite thing about His Damsel in Distress is that Corbin did not get his panties in a twist when he found out about Zinnia’s stalker and that she was using a fake name. Considering his wife’s dishonesty and how she left him feeling betrayed, I just knew that Corbin was going to cut ties with Zinnia when her secret came out. Thankfully I was wrong because not only did he not get mad at her, he “manned up” and did what he could to help insure her safety. Ms. D. has brought a lot of suspense, humor, steamy sex, and romance to Corbin’s Bend with His Damsel in Distress and I cannot wait to see what else the season holds.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
