Riana is running after getting the feeling that she and her daughter, Holly, have been found again.  The plane that is supposed to take them to Washington crashes and they are saved by Gunter and Clay, who are Riana’s mates.

The latest installment of the Paradise series, Memories of Paradise, brings to a close one major thread of this series and also happens to be my favorite so far.  I am glad this particular issue is closed but there are still a few continuing and some new ones still.  There was also a little more information about some of the former Army Rangers that settled in Paradise that will be sure to appear in the future.

This story is different than others as Riana has a teenage daughter who was conceived during the times before the rightful alpha regained his position and brought back the old customs.  This story has lots of humor because Holly is a typical teenager in many ways.  I laughed at some of their interaction as I can relate.  I loved the way the two men just automatically assumed Holly would be there once Riana agreed to a permanent relationship. 

Riana, Gunter and Clay have a lot of chemistry between them and the scenes between the three are hot.  Riana does have a lot of trust issues with men, so her confusion about her attraction and her actions around them was understandable.  

Quite a few characters from the other stories in this series show up toward the end, which also leads to a pleasant surprise for Riana.  While readers don’t need to read the series in order, I suggest reading A Stranger In Paradise, Looking for Paradise, and Healing in Paradise before Memories in Paradise, as they have a direct bearing on this particular story.
