Why did you write this story?
I have a dear friend who went through a horrible divorce, yet now is married to her high school sweetheart and living the life she’s always deserved. This story is dedicated to her.
What’s one surprising thing about this tale?
Ian McKinney’s story is true. I saw it on a reality television program and found myself wondering how a man would overcome that and move on.
Since I had wanted to write a romance about remarriage, it fit right into my storyline.
What is the story about?
Ian McKinney’s wife tried to kill him, and that made up his mind for good. He’s out of the dating game. He has friends, a comfortable job, other things to fill his life.
Then Allison Hoff walks into it. She’s never recovered from the death of her spouse and is now trying to somehow move on. Maybe if she loses a few pounds, builds her self-esteem …
But when she asks him to fill in as her date to the Fourth of July police dance, what seems like a beneficial arrangement to them both proves to be very, very wrong.
What are early reviewers saying?
“This sweet love story brought tears to my eyes more than once.”
“This book is more than a good read, it’s a GREAT read! Easy, moved right along and was so relevant.”
“This Book Was So Sweet, And Good.
Give us a sample.
She crumpled, and Ian swooped around the counter and caught her. Tucking her to his chest, he wrapped his arms around her waist and breathed in the scent he’d become so familiar with, the one that made his heart skip a beat and his face light up.
Allison’s hand crept around him, and she exhaled. “Tell me you feel this,” she said.
He shut his eyes, overcome. “I feel it.”
“Now, say we’re more than friends.”
He laughed softly in her ear. “We’re more than friends.”
“What are we?” she asked.
He ran one hand up and down her back. “I think they call this falling in love.”
