Janessa Cruz has been both a have and a have-not.
Ex-wife to someone famous, she’s now a single mother in hiding.

“Silver Mayor” is my first book from L.B. Dunbar. I’m finding that I like books featuring an older man, so I though to give this one a try. For some reason, I thought that this was an age-gap romance, but it turned out not to be. Having main characters that are above 40 was a nice change for what I normally read!

Janessa moved to Blue Ridge with her daughter, Vega, after divorcing her cheating ex-husband. Wanting to start a new life away from him, she decides to stay with her parents. Charlie is the mayor of Blue Ridge. A single parent himself, he does everything in his powers to keep showing his daughter, Lucy, that she’s loved. Lucy’s mother has always been absent, more concern about her political carrier than her daughter. When Charlie founds Janessa in his room, he’s both curious and attracted to her. After that is a series of moments that will ultimately lead to their HEA!

I really enjoyed the story. The book is full of sexy moments between Janessa and Charlie, as well as enough drama to keep things interesting. I was right there with them, rooting for their relationship to succeed. My heart broke for Vega and Lucy and how their estranged parents treated them. This small town and its people stole my heart and peaked my interest about the rest of the Harrington siblings! I’m happy to find out that there are more books in this series!!




I’ve been accused of having an over-active imagination. To my benefit, this imagination has created over twenty novels, including the creation of a small-town world (Sensations Collection), rock star mayhem (Legendary Rock Star series), MMA chaos (Paradise Stories), rom-com for the over forty (The Sex Education of M.E.), and a suspenseful island for redemption (The Island Duet). My alter ego, elda lore, creates magical romance through mythological retellings (Modern Descendants). My life revolves around a deep love of reading about fairy tales, medieval knights, regency debauchery, and strong alpha males. I love a deep belly laugh, a strong hug, and an occasional margarita. My other loves include being mother to four grown children and wife to the one and only.
