Daniel’s Decision

by Nicole Flockton

Nicole Flockton’s newest story, Daniel’s Decision, is part of Crimson Romance’s Emerald Springs Legacy continuity series. I grew up reading series romance and this book reminded me of why I fell for the genre. I enjoy different authors giving voice to connected characters in a series. Nicole gives Daniel his story! I enjoyed his romance, and getting a little more of the unfolding drama in Emerald Springs.

Daniel is on a mission. He wants to expand the family resort’s hospitality and spa options to be more eco friendly. His ideas for improvements aren’t met with support so he decides to get away and get some more ideas under his hat to make a firmer case. He flies to an Australian resort that has an award winning eco-spa.

Rochelle is a career driven woman who’s the brains behind many of the resort’s spa services. Daniel wants to get to know her for business reasons… at first. After he meets her sparks fly and he wants to get to know her, for her.

I had a bit of a crush on Daniel. I thought he was sensitive, smart and a bit guarded. I liked Rochelle a lot. She has baggage too and isn’t ready to trust her heart to anyone.

The chemistry between them was HOT and felt real. Daniel and Rochelle also connect emotionally and start to share some of their baggage. But they are from two different continents and aren’t looking for anything permanent.

A few of my fav lines.

Would she be able to handle Daniel in full throttle mode? More to the point, how could she resist him if he used his lips and not words to tempt her?

“Are you ok, Chelle?
 He cupped her cheek and swiped his thumb under her eye catching the tears as they fell. She leaned into his touch…


Daniel’s Decision is a sweet romance about two people learning each other, making mistakes and coming to important decisions regarding each other and their future.  I also am intrigued by the suspense surrounding Emerald Springs. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series, but more importantly, I’m looking forward to the next story that Nicole Flockton writes!

Meet Daniel, the fourth of five unforgettable characters in the Emerald Springs Legacy.

Life in the small town of Emerald Springs, Washington, is anything but slow and peaceful. An old feud between former business partners Whitman and Sanders keeps competition on a high burner, fueling resentment, renewing rivalries … and love. Now someone is trying to bring down Emerald Tea Farm, and it’s up to both families to protect their future while still wrangling over the past.

Daniel Whitman has a plan to turn their hospitality retreat into a high-end eco-friendly resort, but his father and brothers think the timing is wrong. Against family wishes, he heads off to Australia to an award-winning eco-spa to test their services. He is immediately attracted to marketing manager Rochelle Harris but pushes it aside to concentrate on discovering what has made this resort so successful.

Rochelle is a career woman, whose mother who frittered away every single penny her father earned, putting him into an early grave. Now Rochelle’s sole goal is to get to the top of her field and become financially secure so she won’t need to rely on anyone. What she doesn’t need is a sexy, attractive American distracting her from her plans.

The more time they spend together, the more the attraction grows. Then a disaster back home makes Daniel realize he has to step up to his responsibilities. But is Rochelle prepared to take the risk and relocate halfway around the world—and can Daniel open up and let someone be a true partner in his life?
