REVIEW: Oh her way home to attend her mother’s funeral, international model Natalie Stallion, meets a handsome stranger whom she has an instant attraction to.  Tinjin Braddy is on his way to spend time with his sister and her family.  Stranded at the airport due to a major snowstorm, Natalie and Tinjin make the best of an otherwise uncomfortable situation.  They spend two days talking and flirting outrageously with each other.  They share what they believe is a brief moment in time; never to see each other again.  But their lives are about to collide in a strange twist of fate.

Desperate for a new beginning and to get away from her abject poverty in Utah, Natalie Stallion left home twelve years ago at the tender age of seventeen.  She has made a life for herself in London as an international model.  During that time she never felt the need to reconnect with her family.  And now a family tragedy is forcing her to return home to face her past.

Tinjin is a talented, world-famous designer; well-grounded by the grandmother who raised him.  He is confident without being arrogant, with a devil-may-care attitude that women find attractive.  His skill as a designer has afforded him a modicum of success.  But after working as one of the head shoe designers for a world renowned talent, Tinjin decides to open his own design house and Tin-men Collections is born.

If you have been following this series, you will know that this is another good read by
Ms Fletcher Mello.  In MY STALLION HEART, the author surprises us with a new branch to the Stallion family tree in the form of five new cousins.  The family saga continues with Tinjin and Natalie’s story.  Their interactions make it obvious from the start that they are very attracted to each other.  Natalie and Tinjin complement each other very nicely.  These two are well-matched in looks, talent and temperament.  This is a great love story with London and Paris in the background; adding an international layer to this series.  Due to skillful writing this story can stand on its own.  But I like the fact that the author incorporates the rest of the Stallions into this book, which gives the story a good variety of secondary characters.

The Stallion family is an interesting group steeped in family, love and loyalty to each other.  And with this new branch of relatives, it is sure to give us many hours of pleasurable reading.  Kudos to the author for writing another winner.  Can’t wait to read the next one.
