Spunky Allison McClare is determined to be a fearless, independent woman, resorting to a mammoth hat pin for protection on her way to and from the school where she teaches. But when she takes a notion to explore the wild Barbary Coast she quickly discovers she is no match for rum-soaked brute strength.

Detective Nick Barone would rather do almost anything than teach this petite socialite jiu-jitsu, but it seems he has little choice in the matter. Sparks fly every time the two meet until a grudging friendship develops into something deeper. But when Nick suddenly leaves town, Allison realizes he’s a fraud just like all the rest of the men she’s cared for. Does she dare love again?

The lushness of the glorious Gilded Age beautifully showcases Lessman’s passion as a writer in this engaging love story written with humor and heart. From the glamour of San Francisco’s Nob Hill to the seedy gambling dens of the Barbary Coast, Dare to Love Again is a journey to find a love that never fails. Fans will love revisiting the world of the cousins McClare, and new readers will seek more of Julie’s passion-filled novels.

MY THOUGHTS:
DARE TO LOVE AGAIN by Julie Lessman is another exciting inspirational Historical Romance set in San Francisco in 1903. #2 “The Heart of San Francisco” but can be read as a stand alone. See, “Love at any Cost”. Once again, Ms. Lessman has created a story that is stunning, with memorable characters, and an intriguing storyline. The characters are witty, engaging, emotional, with longing, forgiveness, healing, deception, and the brilliance of love. A most interesting story with more than one twist and turn. Detective Nick Barone and Socialite Allison McClare, are sure to capture your heart. Second chances and the glamour of the Gilded Age of San Francisco makes this an entertaining story. A must read!
