3.5 stars-- Tender Wings of Desire by Harland Sanders #HappyMothersDay

Not bad. Not bad. I laughed, I cried, I smiled as they set sail for their chicken empire in America.

Tender Wings of Desire turned out to be a surprisingly cute read. A runaway heroine, a tavern by the sea, a glasses wearing sailor with chicken in his past.


Okay so if you've been on social media you've seen this one. Before it blew up Catherine Gayle tagged me in a post over it and I was like I AM IN! A mother's day novella from KFC?! ohmahgawd. So I dropped everything and read Tender Wings of Desire straight through. And I don't regret a damn second of it it's tender, yet crispy, goodness. l

Basically Madeline is supposed to be marrying someone and she's like omg NO! He's so bland! I need some spices in my life! So she runs away and eventually lands in a small town by the sea. And so her life begins in a little tavern with a mass of fishy smelling locals--they're all sailors, coworkers who soon turn to friends and a single sailor who just has a twinkle in his eye. I had fun getting to know the town and watching the two of them fall for each other. There's a little bit of heat, too. The Colonel has some moves, yall.

I would totally read more from Harland Sanders. While Tender Wings of Desire could have used a bit of editing it was a fun little read. I enjoyed the characters, seeing Madeline take her life and make it what she wanted. I loved how they worked in KFC, though, there was surprisingly very little chicken. All breasts and thighs were solely that of the heroines.

When Lady Madeline Parker runs away from Parker Manor and a loveless betrothal, she finally feels like she is in control of her life. But what happens when she realizes she can’t control how she feels? When she finds herself swept into the arms of Harland, a handsome sailor with a mysterious past, Madeline realizes she must choose between a life of order and a man of passion. Can love overcome lies? What happens in the embrace of destiny, on the Tender Wings of Desire?
