"Falling for Home

Alex is seriously sexy and knows how to set limits when it comes to his woman, “well, as long as no strings means that while we enjoy each other, no one else is enjoying you. Because then I’d have to shoot someone.” I really liked this book I loved Alex."

"Praise for Falling for Home


This story was wonderful on so many levels that connects the reader. First off, Lucy Aarons is the middle child of the beautiful Aaron sisters that are highly regarded in town. Lucy comes home from her global trotting job that she just so happens to have been fired from to help younger sister Kate with the remodeling and fundraising for the local teen/youth center. Everyone is harsh to Lucy on her history of quick in and out trips due to her renowned photography job that has landed her in all the top magazines; however, they always fail to give her the deserved praise. Lucy is one you identify with, feel hurt for and want her to just tell people off even knowing it's not her personality.

Lucy has came home to find things have changed in the 4 years since she has been gone, not all good, but the sexy Sheriff living next door is just down right awesome. Alex Whittman grew up with Lucy and she has been on his radar for years. Seeing her again only brings back the boyhood desires Alex held for Lucy. Alex sees Lucy for who she is and accepts her as well. He sees the hurt the inconsiderate words her family throws at her causes and Lucy can't seem to hide from Alex like she can everyone else.

Being back home, Lucy sees what she has been missing. She misses the closeness her family has and feels odd man out. She misses her nieces and her sisters and realizes they have lots of things going on themselves. Her parents are a big ball of angst as she misses them terribly, knows there is something going on with her mother and harbors feelings that need to be dealt with.

While Lucy has her own things to deal with, Alex is dealing with a town vandal and arson"

"Reader review posted to Chapters/Indigo Site

I read an advanced release copy of this book and loved it. It has everything I look for - strong, relatable characters, mystery and suspense, and great romance. It's written from dual points of view, alternating chapters from Josh to Alessa, and this let me really connect with both of the main characters. My favourite thing about this book was the suspense. Alessa shows up in the ER beaten almost to death and with no memory of what happened to her, or who she is. As Josh and Alessa fall for each other they follow what clues they can to figure out who she is. Meanwhile what happened to Alessa isn't quite as in the past as they may think! This book is a great read - definitely recommend it!"

When Josh meets Alessa

Dangerous Love - Kara Leigh Miller, Jody Holford

Josh took several steps toward the road, toward the deli when his beeper went off. “Shoot.” He jogged back inside and met the EMTs as they wheeled a stretcher into the ER. “What do we got?” he asked.

“Young woman, early thirties, beaten unconscious, trauma to the head, stomach, and chest,” the EMT ticked off the woman’s injuries. “Possible broken ribs, too. Breathing is shallow.”

Josh pulled a tiny flashlight from his pocket and checked her eyes. They were reacting to light. That was a good sign. Unhooking his stethoscope from around his neck, he checked her heart. Slow, but steady. “Do we know her name?”

“Alessandra Mathews.”

“Okay, Alessandra,” Josh said in a soft voice. “My name is Dr. Parker. You’re at Metro General Hospital. Can you hear me?”

On the stretcher, she groaned in pain. Tears fell from her bruised and swollen eyes. Dried blood coated her face. Dear God, she looked horrible, so scared and weak.

“We’re going to take care of you now. You’re safe.” Josh put his hand on her shoulder in an attempt to soothe her. It unsettled him to see this woman so shaken, perhaps more than it should. He kept his hand light on her but with enough pressure for her to register that he was there, that she wasn’t alone.
