RELEASE BLITZ and MY REVIEW of Love to Hate You by Jessica Prince

Title: Love to Hate You
Series: Hope Valley
Author: Jessica Prince

Contemporary Romance; Small Town Romance; Single Parent Romance

 

Micah Langford thought he was happy with his bachelor lifestyle…
until Hayden Young fell into his life and shook things up.
There’s just one problem.
The gorgeous single mother can’t stand the sight of him.

 

After her husband left her for her best friend, Hayden Young moved to Hope Valley looking for a fresh start for her and her daughter. The last thing she expected was to run into the man who had rocked her world in the middle of the wine section of the local grocery store. And no matter how many times she tells herself she hates the egotistical jerk, she can’t stop the tingle she feels every time she looks at him.

Micah Langford was a man who enjoyed variety. He had absolutely no interest in finding one woman and settling down. Then a one-night-stand from his past—and the best sex of his life—came rolling into town, and the self-proclaimed bachelor started wanting more. The only problem is, she can’t stand the sight of him.

When hate gives way to fire, igniting a passion neither of them can deny, Micah finds himself thinking about the future—or more specifically, how he can fit Hayden into his. But when a case he’s working on heats up, and she starts asking questions he can’t answer, Hayden has a decision to make. She can either take a leap and put her trust in him, or she can let the secrets destroy them.

**Hope Valley is a series of interconnected, standalone, small town romances.**

Sometime into my second beer, Micah had suggested we move away from the bar and grab a table, something I was more than happy to do. Instead of sitting across from me, he’d taken the chair right beside mine, scooting it even closer so our knees brushed together with even a slight movement.

A couple hours later I was working my way through beer number four. My cheeks were hot, and not just from the alcohol. My head felt nice and floaty and there was a really pleasant warmth blooming beneath my skin.

At some point during our chatting, Micah had positioned himself so one of his arms was resting on the table beside mine, and every now and then he’d slowly drag his fingers across the back of my hand as he spoke, the touch barely there, as though he didn’t even realize he was doing it. If he wasn’t doing that, he was reaching out to brush my hair away from my face. Sometimes he’d tuck a lock behind my ear, dragging the pads of his fingers along the column of my neck gently before pulling back. Other times he’d simply reach out to caress the strands.

“Fuckin’ gorgeous hair, sweetheart,” he’d rumbled at one point. “And so damn soft.”

I’d nearly melted into a puddle right there in my seat.

As it was, those small touches had me riled up in a way I hadn’t experienced in a very long time. I’d been in a constant state of arousal for a while now. My nipples were so tight they ached and my panties got wetter every time he laughed or smiled at me. Hell, just the scent of his aftershave, something clean and musky, was making me lightheaded.

“So tell me something about yourself,” he insisted.

“There’s really not much to tell. I’m just a normal, boring chick,” I answered evasively, as I’d been doing every time he asked me about myself. I was in this bar in the first place because I needed an escape from the shitstorm that had become my life. I’d been in search of a reprieve from the dark, and I’d gotten just that in a very big and unexpected way with a sexy stranger. No way in hell was I putting a damper on any of that by talking about my ex-asshole.

“Somehow I doubt that very much, Red. You gotta give me something.”

I played off the fact that nickname sent a pleasurable tingle up my spine and arched a single brow as I sipped my beer. “Red?”

He grabbed another piece of my hair and gave it a playful tug. “Seems fitting. Now answer one question for me. You live around here?”

“No.” The answer fell off my tongue without any thought. It wasn’t technically a lie. Ivy and I would be moving in a matter of days, and it wasn’t like I was ever going to see this guy again. Evasion was the name of the game. “Just here for a few days for . . . work.” I lifted my beer and gulped. “You?”

“Grew up here but moved away after college. Just came back for the weekend ’cause my little sis is having a baby and the devil woman decided the shower was gonna be co-ed.”

“Ah, gotcha. So, family obligation brought you back.”

“Partly. Mostly it was the threat of death from my old man if I made my sister cry by not showing up.”

My head fell back on a long laugh. When my hilarity tapered off, I caught Micah staring at me, his green eyes flashing with heat that made my heart beat faster. I cleared my throat and teased, “So, if you’re supposed to be here for a baby shower, what are you doing in a bar?”

“Met up with some old buddies for a drink. We were just finishing up when I saw you walk in.” He leaned closer, lowering his voice as his fingers took another trip along the back of my hand. “Decided the smartest thing I could do was stick around after that.”

I was suddenly feeling lightheaded in a way that had nothing to do with the beer. The green of his eyes flashed again and his nostrils flared as he watched my lips part and my tongue peek out to swipe across the bottom one.

I’d never in my life been in a situation where I craved a man I didn’t know to the point it made me squirm. I wanted Micah in a way I hadn’t experienced in way too damn long. I’d never pictured myself as the kind of woman who could pull off a one-night stand, but the thought of missing out on this chance left a sour taste in my mouth, and the more time we spent together the more I turned that idea over in my head until it seemed like the most brilliant idea ever.

It wasn’t until my body’s unexpected reaction to him that I realized I hadn’t had sex in nearly a year. Once that little discovery pushed itself to the forefront of my mind, it was like a fire had been lit in my blood. Having sex with Micah was all I could think about.

I felt like I was someone else as I leaned forward and placed my palm on his thick, solid thigh, and I hardly recognized the throaty voice that came from my mouth as I said, “I have a room a few blocks away if you want to come back with me.”

I didn’t get that flash again, but that bright, vibrant green suddenly turned dark as he rasped, “Fuck yeah, Red. Let’s get out of here.”

My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Read this book in one sitting. Love it so much.

Micah and Hayden’s story is now my favorite in this series.

After her husband left her for her best friend and a one night stand that she will never forget, Hayden is ready for her new beginnings.

Little does she knows that she meets him again in the local grocery store.

Love everything about this book. The banter between Micah and Hayden, little Ivy and Sylvia were my favorites.

The storyline with a little suspense was great. Now I need more ASAP. Charlie and Dalton’s book can’t come soon enough.

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

🎶BLOG TOUR and MY REVIEW of Rifts and Refrains by Devney Perry🎶

Rifts and Refrains by Devney Perry is now live! 

From the moment Quinn Montgomery sat behind her first snare and cymbal set, she was destined for fame and glory. As Hush Note’s infamous female drummer, she sets the rhythm for the band’s chart-toppings hits. When people tap their feet to their music, it’s to her pulse.
Quinn is content to live in a world away from her family and the cage of her youth. Her only regret is leaving Graham Hayes behind without a goodbye. No matter how many sold-out stadiums she plays, no matter how many crowds sing her songs, his voice haunts her when the music stops.
When a family tragedy forces her to return home to Montana, she plans to leave the second she’s paid her respects. But seeing Graham again turns her life upside down. As a boy, he wasn’t able to make her stay. As a man, he might be her future.
If they can mend their rifts and find solace in the refrains.

Excerpt

She took one step before stopping. A smile tugged at the corner of her mouth, the same corner I’d kissed earlier, and I fought the urge to stand and capture that mouth again. Her smile broadened, though there was pain in her eyes.

 “Colin is a cool kid. You’re a good dad, Graham. I always knew you would be.”

She might as well have stabbed me in the chest.

“Thanks,” I said, watching as she walked away.

Fuck me.

When had I never loved that woman?

Maybe that kiss had woken me up. Maybe it had made me realize how goddamn lonely I’d been without her. I had Colin, but there was a corner of my heart that would always belong to Quinn.

 I should have followed her nine years ago.

Because now it was too late.

MY REVIEW:

A beautifully written second chance romance by the amazing Devney Perry.
I’m not a big fan of rock star romances, but we’re talking about Devney Perry here and I’ll read anything she writes.
This book has all my favorite tropes. Small town and single father.
Quinn is a Rock Star. She is the drummer of The Hush Notes. Nine years ago she walked away from everything, including the only boy she had ever loved.
But now she has to go back to Bozeman, Montana to bury her beloved Nan.
Graham never forgave Quinn walking away from their love and never came back.
This book gave me so many feels while reading it. It was heartbreaking to me how Quinn’s family treated her at the beginning.
The chemistry between Quinn and Graham was very good. And love Quinn’s relationship with Colin.
The epilogue was beautiful. Couldn’t have a better ending.

I so want to read the other two books. I’m dying to read Nixon’s story.

My Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 11, 2020

Behind every successful man there is a woman.

What happens when you’re the woman behind an entire team?

Sandy Preston has been den mother, friend, confidante, and the guiding force behind the men of BAM for years. 

Now they have new lives, and hers has drastically changed.

SANDY WILL BE IN KINDLE UNLIMITED STARTING JUNE 14, 2020

Sigh…What a beautiful ending to one of my favorite series.

I’m so glad that Melanie decided to write this book because Sandy needed to love again and get her HAE.

This book is very beautifully written. As a reader of mature romances I loved it and hope to read more of this trope from Melanie.

Sandy and Jordan’s story is about finding love again after loosing the love of your life and start living again.

They were perfect for each other. Jordan was the perfect gentleman and so patient with Sandy.

Reading how the men of BAM loved Sandy was beautiful. As a reader of this series you know how much they love her, but reading it throughout this book was so beautiful.

Everything in this book is amazing. The storyline and the chemistry between Sandy and Jordan, reading about the men of BAM and the epilogue.

Melanie did an outstanding job on Sandy’s story.

I have mixed feelings after reading this book because I’m so happy that Sandy got her book, swooning about their story and sad this series is over.

Thank you Melanie Moreland for an amazing series and for always writing beautiful books.

Tweet: The latest #ContemporaryRomance - Victim Of Circumstance from @Freya_Barker is Live on all platforms #BuyNow https://ctt.ec/UO6hn+ #BAPpr #ReadingList2020

Victim of Circumstance is a new standalone by Freya Barker that I think and really hope that will be a new series.

First let me say that I’ve been a fan of Freya for a long time. I’ve read all her books and this one is my very favorite. Freya has outdone herself with this book.

This is a story about redemption and second chances and loyal friends believing in you.

Grey return home after being in prison for 18 years. He has lots of issues and believes that everyone hates him. But what he finds is loyal friends and people with regrets.

Robin is a widow who lost her husband in the 9/11 tragedy. She works at the local diner and is very much attracted to the brooding man.

Freya has a talent to tell a story and keeping you hooked from the first page to the last.

She is an amazing storyteller. And this book is a book that you’ll want to read if you are her fan and even if you’ve never read her books and love to read about mature couples.

Love the storyline and the secondary characters that I know some of them will have their own story.

This book will definitely go as one if my favorites for this year.

My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ STARS

USA Today bestselling author Freya Barker loves writing about ordinary people with extraordinary stories.
Driven to make her books about ‘real’ people; she creates characters who are perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy, but just as deserving of romance, thrills and chills in their lives.
Recipient of the ReadFREE.ly 2019 Best Book We’ve Read All Year Award for “Covering Ollie, the 2015 RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for Best First Book, “Slim To None”, and Finalist for the 2017 Kindle Book Award with “From Dust”, Freya continues to add to her rapidly growing collection of published novels as she spins story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!

RELEASE BLITZ and MY REVIEW of Southern Storm by NATASHA MADISON

Release Date: May 19
Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.Savannah

I’m the one who broke up the golden couple. The woman people still whisper about, point at, and give dirty looks to.




Did I sleep with the prom king? No. Did I sleep with the town’s golden boy on vacation from college? Yes.

Did I believe that he was going to marry me? Wholeheartedly.

Did he? Not even close. He got engaged right in front of me and then his father threw two hundred dollars at me and told me to take the trash out.

So, I raised my son in a town where people love him because they think that his father is the sheriff.

It was going great, everything was working out till my lie got out.

Beau

I was getting ready to take over the mayoral office from my father, who was my hero.

Until I heard the secret he hoped would stay buried forever.

My brother has a son, not just any son but a son with the woman who was my best friend.

The woman I secretly have loved from the moment she stood up to me and broke my nose in kindergarten.

I need to protect her and in order to do that, we need to get married.

Too bad her nightmare is my dream come true.

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. 

You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. 

It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Southern Storm is a amazing read. I knew Natasha would redeem Savannah.
Savannah didn’t have an easy life. That poor girl. Now that I’ve read her story, I understand her better.
Beau was always in love with Savannah, she was his best friend. But what he doesn’t know is that Savannah was always in love with him too.
Love the storyline. But poor Savannah, she couldn’t get a break. Thank God she had Beau to help her. Beau was dreamy and hot!
So glad that Savannah got her second chance. She deserved it.
Another awesome book by Natasha Madison.

RELEASE BLITZ and MY REVIEW of Reckless Memories by Catherine Cowles.

RM - RB banner.jpg


“A story rich with both heartache and hope. Catherine Cowles writes characters that are real, relatable, and will have you rooting for their happily-ever-after with all your heart!”
– Mia Sheridan, New York Times bestselling author

Reckless Memories, an all-new emotional, all-consuming, friends-to-lovers standalone from Catherine Cowles is out now!

Reckless Memories Cover (1).jpg

I loved him before I knew what the word meant.
From skinned knees to first dates and everything in between.
But he was never mine to love.
I settled for friendship, even though I always wanted more.

That was before.
Before he ripped my world apart and didn’t bother sticking around to help me pick up the pieces.
I knit every last shred back together all on my own.
And I’ve all but forgotten his name.

Now, he’s back, and everything is torn apart once more.
But he’s not the only one doing the tearing this time.
And there might be no stopping the person who has it out for us both.

Reckless Memories is the first book in the Wrecked series by Catherine Cowles and it’s her best book to date.

I’ve been a fan of Ms. Cowles for a long time and love all her book but this one was beyond great. It’s not an easy love story. A story about friendship, heartbreak, lies, trust and letting go of the past.

Isabelle (Belle) and Ford’s story started when they were very young. They were always together and best friend. They understood each other. But Ford was Isabelle’s sister’s boyfriend.

Until something tragically happened and Isabelle lost two of the persons she loved the most in this world.

Belle and Ford’s chemistry was adorable when they were young and hot later when all grown up.

Love the storyline, the suspense and the secondary characters that I know there will be in the next upcoming books that I cannot wait to read.

I really hope hunter and the Sheriff will get their books too.

RELEASE BLITZ and MY REVIEW of Crazy Beautiful by Jessica Prince.

Title: Crazy Beautiful
Author: Jessica Prince
Series: Redemption
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Our marriage was only supposed to be a business transaction…
Until I went and fell for my wife.

 

Their marriage was nothing more than a business transaction. Or at least that was what they told themselves.

Poppy Weston had been burned enough times by undeserving men to know her heart was best left under lock and key. She was content with her life, even with the lack of romance. Then Jase Hyland walked into Redbud Inn and offered her something she couldn’t refuse. In return, all she had to do was marry him.

Jase had seen firsthand the kind of damage relationships caused, and he wanted nothing to do with it. He’d been taught from a young age that the only things that should matter to a man were wealth and power. However, all it took was a series of events to lead him down a path he never expected to travel.

It was supposed to be simple. No feelings, no emotions, just two friends entering into a mutually beneficial arrangement.

He thought he had it all figured out . . . until he went and fell for his wife.

Quiet rained down on the dimly lit back porch, oppressive and thick with the tension I’d unwittingly walked into.

I’d never done well with awkward silences. I had the nasty habit of rambling in an effort to fill the void any time I found myself in that situation. That compulsion came over me then, spurred on even more by the fact that any time I was in Jase Hyland’s orbit, I turned into a flustered, bumbling disaster.

“I’m so sorry. I wasn’t lurking, I swear. I honestly didn’t know you guys were out here. Then when I did, I wasn’t sure what to do. I kind of froze.”

The sigh he released before bringing the tumbler in his hands to his full, pouty lips and sucking back some of the amber liquid inside sounded like it carried the weight of the world.

“It’s all right, sweetheart. You didn’t do anything wrong.”

I began to fidget in place, shifting from foot to foot and wringing my fingers together in front of me as the full force of his attention hit me like a wrecking ball.

My heart was at risk of doing a Kool-Aid Man impersonation and busting through my chest at any second.

Even with half of his features still shrouded in darkness, I knew exactly what he looked like. I’d spent enough time watching him during his visits to see his sister that I’d managed to memorize every sinful inch of him. And yes, I realized that made me sound like a psycho creeper. But I couldn’t help myself.

His well-trimmed brown hair had just enough product in it to keep it from flopping over his forehead but wasn’t overly styled. By this time of night, there was bound to be a five-o’clock shadow dusted across a strong, square jawline. The bridge of his nose had a tiny bump, making it slightly imperfect, but still attractive on such a handsome face, and his sharp cheekbones made him look almost regal. He was like a slightly scruffed-up Chris Evans. In other words, gorgeous.

He wasn’t like any of the men I’d grown up around. Redemption, Tennessee had its fair share of attractive guys, believe me. But this man was different. Where the men in my town lived in T-shirts, jeans, and flannel, Jase was well-groomed, usually in slacks and a button-down.

From my vantage point, I could see that his shirt was opened casually at the collar, and the cuffs of his sleeves had been rolled up to expose solid, veined forearms. Arm porn at its finest. The shirt was fine quality, tailored to fit his broad shoulders and thick biceps perfectly.

As usual, his look screamed money, but not in a flashy way that said he was trying to show off. It was how he carried himself. His calm, cool confidence gave off that impression.

God, he’s gorgeous, I thought, as I continued staring, unable to pull my attention away from his perfect, masculine features. I’d never been so thankful for dim lighting. It was the only thing hiding the insane blush that burned through my cheeks and chest—just one of the curses of being a redhead. “I’ll just, uh . . .” I trailed off pathetically, hooking my thumb over my shoulder and taking a step back.

“No, stay.”

Two little words from his gorgeous mouth, and I felt the need to fan myself. Clenching my fists to keep from doing that, I took hesitant steps in his direction, bracing my hands on the railing around the porch once I finally reached his side.

I didn’t have the first clue what he and Bennett had been arguing about, but I couldn’t stand to see the blank, stoic look on a face that was normally so happy. I arched a playful brow and stated, “You look like you’re about two seconds away from making a run for it.”

His head twisted toward me, one corner of his mouth kicking up in a smirk that made my belly flutter like a million hummingbirds had taken flight. Those golden-brown eyes, lined with long, dark lashes, danced with humor in the pale glow of the porch light. “You wouldn’t be too far off the mark, Flower.”

My heart did an Olympic gymnast-style flip at the name he’d christened me with on his very first visit to Redemption. Said in that husky voice of his, I nearly melted into a puddle of goo right then and there.

I twisted to face him full on and sucked in a dramatic gasp. “And risk the wrath of Farah? She’d murder you so dead.”

His smile was still there, but for the first time that night, I noticed just how tired he looked. There were faint purple smudges beneath his eyes. The scruff on his jaw was longer than I’d expected it to be, his hair unrulier.

Don’t get me wrong, he was still hotter than a damn forest fire, but it was evident in the lines on his sexy face that something was weighing on him.

“Hey,” I started, lowering my voice. “You all right?”

He downed more of his drink, bourbon, judging by the smell of it, and used that time to school his features and paste a carefree expression on before responding. “I’m good, Pop.”

With how often Jase had come to town to visit Bennett and his sister, staying at the inn most of those times, I’d gotten to know him well enough to consider us casual friends. More than acquaintances, but not besties by any stretch of the imagination. Still, I cared that something was plaguing him.

“You know, it’s none of my business if you don’t want to talk, and I’m certainly not gonna push, but if you ever need someone to listen, Jase, I’m never more than a phone call away.”

His glass came down on the iron banister with a clank. The intensity in his gaze as he stared down at me—like he was seeing something deep inside me at that very moment, something I didn’t understand— stole my breath and caused my lungs to deflate.

“You’re something else, Poppy. You know that?”

My blush grew so furious I thought I might actually catch fire at any second. “I’m just me,” I said quietly, looking up at him through the fan of my lashes. “Nothing special.”

His voice took on an even huskier timbre as he said, “That’s where you’re wrong, Flower. So very wrong.”

With that, he downed the last of his bourbon, placed the glass on the railing, and shocked the hell out of me by leaning down and placing a kiss on my forehead. “And I’ll keep your offer in mind.” Then he turned and headed back into the house, leaving me reeling.

 

 Crazy Beautiful is the second book in The Redemption series and my new favorite book by Jessica Prince.

This is a beautiful book that gave me so many emotions while I was reading it.

Love the storyline and this trope, marriage of convenience, is becoming now one of my faves.

Jase is protective. He will protect those he love and he will do everything to protect his wife. He needs a wife otherwise he will loose the position of CEO in his company.

Poppy is strong. She’s the owner of the Inn of Redemption. And the Inn has to undergo a few reparations and she doesn’t has the money for it.

I loved the Chemistry between Jase and Poppy. Jase is an protective alpha and he had me swooning. Poppy is strong and very independent. But she was also sweet and very loyal. Loved it so much when she defended Jase.

Great secondary characters that I can’t wait to read more of.

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

RELEASE BLITZ and MY REVIEW: Life & Limb by Freya Barker.

Title: Life & Limb (PASS, #2)
Author: Freya Barker
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 11, 2020
Photographer: JW Photography
Models: Katie McCain & Josh Faust
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Growing up a military brat and spending eight years overseas with the Army Medical Corps, clinical social worker, Willa Smith, has had enough of rules and regulations. Still able to work with veterans as she did at the VA Hospital, she is much happier at the new and far more relaxed South Avenue Shelter, until one of its residents is implicated in a murder.

Former military turned security operative, Dimas Mazur, has worked for PASS security, his brother’s company, since he returned stateside after a disabling injury. The job keeps him busy, but when a homeless veteran he knows runs into trouble with the law, he doesn’t hesitate to jump in. The strong-headed counselor at the shelter where his friend stayed is an unexpected bonus.

Until she puts herself square in the sights of the man he’s trying to take down.

Life and Limb is the second book in Freya Barker’s PASS series and another awesome read.

Like I always say, Freya writes amazing characters with a great storyline and lots of suspense. Throw in strong women and protective and honorable alpha male and it’s just the way I love my books.

Willa Smith is a social worker that works in a shelter for homeless veterans. She is fierce, independent and strong. Love her character.

Dimas Mazur is a veteran who now works with his brother Yanis as a Security Expert at PASS.

Loved the mystery side of the story and guessing who did it.

The chemistry between the main characters was great and love reading about Jake and Rosie.

Dimas parents, Anna and Max had me laughing. They were my favorite characters in the book. Hope to read more about them in Yanis’ book.

Awesome read and can’t wait for more of this series and read Bree and Yanis’ book soon.

RELEASE BLITZ and MY REVIEW of EMBER by EMMA RENSHAW🔥

Ember - RB Banner.jpg

“The perfect blend of heartfelt emotion and suspenseful swoons. Emma Renshaw grips the reader from the powerful prologue to the very last words. You don’t want to miss this book.” Author Catherine Cowles

From Emma Renshaw, author of the Vow series, comes a new small town romance about a guilt-ridden man returning home, a single mom, and the past that scars them both.

Ember, book one in the Ember series, is LIVE!

Ember AMAZON.jpg

Ten years ago, I left Hawk Valley.

I never planned to return. Not to the regrets. The bitter memories. The guilt.

My baseball career gave me both the excuse and the money I needed to start over. Then my mom called, and I found myself headed back to the one place I swore I wouldn’t step foot again.

Meeting Delilah wasn’t part of the plan. Falling in love with her adorable son was even less so. And yet, what’s brewing between us is too intense to be denied. The unexpected passion is almost enough to distract us from the crumbling of both our worlds.

But even as the sparks fly, someone is waiting in the shadows to burn it all down.
