Reader Review: I love Linda Howard books and although this isn't one of my favorites, the story is still very touching. The lead characters had many obstacles to face in their relationship and it is quite an emotional read.
A tragic accident took everything that mattered to Rome Matthews - his wife, Diane, and their two little boys. And it robbed Sarah Harper of her best friend. In the two years since the tragedy, Sarah has wanted to reach out to Rome, but she knew she needed to stay away, guarding the secret she had kept from him and Diane all those years - that she was in love with her best friend's husband.
But now Rome needs her. And though another woman will hold his heart forever, Sarah agrees to be his wife, knowing that everything has a price, including love. Then something totally unexpected rekindles her hidden hope that a marriage of convenience will become a union of love. Will Rome keep fighting his own growing need for a woman who dares him to believe there are second chances in life or will he give in to the healing power of love and miracles?

It was the end of a long week, and Sarah knew that she should go home, but just the thought of facing the broiling late August heat was enough to keep her sitting in her chair with the air-conditioning humming pleasantly overhead. She wasn't working; she'd swiveled the chair around and spent the last fifteen minutes simply staring out the window, too relaxed to really care that it was getting late. The sun had dipped low enough that the Dallas array of dazzling skyscrapers of glass and steel was outlined against a bronzed sky, which meant she'd missed the six o'clock news yet again. It was Friday evening; her boss, Mr. Graham, had left over an hour before. There was no reason why she shouldn't join the mass exodus on the streets below, yet she felt reluctant to go home. She'd taken such pains with her condominium; made it as homey and comfortable as she could, but lately the emptiness of it had been haunting her. She could fill it with music, rent any movie and watch it on the VCR, lose herself in reading and pretend that she was in any other country in the world, yet she would still be alone. Lately it was becoming a state of loneliness, rather than one of solitude.
Perhaps it was the weather, she thought tiredly. The summer had been hot and humid, wearing everyone down, but she knew inside that it wasn't the heat that was bothering her. It was the inevitable sensation of time slipping away, as summer died once more and became another autumn. It seemed that even in the fierce heat she could feel the chill of winter in her bones. It was more than the passing of another season: it was her own youth slipping away, inexorably draining from her grasp. The years had passed, and she'd devoted herself to her work...

I'm more familiar with Linda Howard's recent stuff ... this is quite different from the newer books but nevertheless, this was still a good read!
Sweet, if a little dated

I admit, I read this with the suggestion of a friend. Sarah has been in love with Roman for years, the trouble is that he married her best friend! Fast forward a couple years and Sarah's friend and sons have died in a car accident. Sarah's feelings are as strong as ever, but she doesn't want to feel she is betraying her friend. Add to the fact that Roman has built a wall between him and emotions. He desires Sarah, and has for years, but does not want her to love him nor will he allow himself to love her.
The technology and characters are a little dated; telephone with cords on them and no laptops! But I well enjoyed it.

Sarah's Child was one of the first Linda Howard books I read that made me fall in love with romances. Rome suffered from the tragic loss of his wife and sons and Sarah had to keep her love a secret. It's a sweet and emotional read that made me cry and laugh. And of course it had a happy ending.
