Once upon a time... there lived a lovely young woman named Savanna who was engaged to Daniel, a handsome law student. Theirs was to be a fairy-tale wedding. But Savanna's second thoughts were too big to be ignored, so the would-be bride ran away.

As the years passed... Daniel's heart turned to ice. It was this unfeeling man that Savanna faced upon her return. The love of her youth is now a stranger. Can Savanna ever make Daniel understand why she abandoned him? And will she convince the man of her dreams he will always be her Prince Charming?

5.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Runaway Bride 7 Jun 2011
By BigAl
Format:Kindle Edition
In the author's note, Fasano says this book was inspired by an elevator ride she shared with a bride-to-be and her mother who had just picked up a bridal gown. The daughter told her mother, "I just don't think I can go through with this" and Fasano took it from there. With the pressure of wedding preparations, the commitments implied, and what they might be giving up, getting cold feet on the cusp of the wedding is common.

Although acting on those concerns is rare, Savanna's reasons made sense. She felt going from her parent's care straight to marriage, especially to someone like her fiancé Danny who is on the verge of joining his father's law practice, would preclude her from ever becoming independent. If only she'd thought of this sooner. Of course, had she done that, we wouldn't have much of a story.

What I enjoyed about "Return of the Runaway Bride" was the premise, since it is something many have considered, and an exploration of the potential repercussions. Although it does have the required happily-ever-after ending, getting there is far from easy. It also depicts the advantages of small town life, with their extensive informal support systems, and the disadvantages due to gossip and everyone knowing your business.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Runaway Bride 7 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
A perfect life... who runs away from that?

Nineteen-year-old Savanna did just that, feeling like her textbook life had been created for her by others. Her parents had carefully orchestrated her life and now she was about to jump into a marriage to a wonderful man, who would continue their goal-to make sure that she was provided with everything. She panicked and ran away, leaving her life in Fulton behind.

Six years later, she returns home to mend bridges. The man she left behind, Daniel, is still around, embittered and hardened by her abandonment. Will she be able to fit back into Fulton life? Will she be able to get him to forgive her?

Donna Fasano (award-winning author Donna Clayton) takes us on a journey of intense passion, exploring the boundaries of love and repercussions. Her writing is style is such that I was hooked right away, and completely invested in the love affair between Savanna and Danny. I look forward to reading many more books by this amazing author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sensual romance 29 Jan 2012
By Kew
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this novel by Donna Fasano, it is the second book of hers which I have read and I look forward to reading some more! I have found her writing to be full of feeling, more touching than the usual run of the mill romances. This book has attractive characters with enough flaws to make them human but still very likeable. There is humour and there is depth of feeling. This makes very enjoyable reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Donna Fasano has a happy new fan!! 10 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Savanna Langford knew that Danny Walsh was perfect husband material. He loved her desperately, as she did him, and they would get married and live happily ever after. Until the day of the wedding she knew this to be true. With him, her future promised a cocoon of safety she’d always known. Then strangely, dressed in her gorgeous gown with her the lacy panels of her French silk tulle veil being attached to her head, claustrophobia attacked. Is this really what she wanted for her future? To be stifled with love and babied with protection? No! NO! She ran... Years later she was still running only this time it was back to her hometown – back to where she’d made the biggest mistake of her life. Would he still be there? This was a wonderful story, well-written, and full of emotion that kept my attention from beginning to end. I loved Savanna’s grit and determination. And Danny was the perfect hero for her. Even grown up and angry, he was a good man. From now on, Donna Fasano has a new fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictable but enjoyable enough 15 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
On her wedding day Savanna runs away from Danny. Several years later she returns to the small town where she grew up and tries to fix things.

I've read this plot before, it is not original, but this author does an OK job of telling the story even if it is rather predictable. Danny holds a grudge (not surprisingly) and Savanna feels that the efforts she made to explain what was going on in her head were sufficient - it transpires that an important letter went astray. Savanna's efforts to reengage with Danny include fundraising for the local hospital. Danny doesn't trust Savanna not to run away again and so is uncooperative. I'm pretty sure that you can work out the ending !

The story IS predictable but it is well enough told. There is nothing in this book that will challenge the reader or linger in the mind but it is an enjoyable enough, light read.
