Absolute Love by Erin Everleigh
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Synopsis

Phoebe thought she had her Happily Ever After. She had a beautiful little girl and was married to the man of her dreams.

But the unexpected death of her mother causes Phoebe’s world to come crashing down.

Confronted with the realization that the missing pieces of her past are lost to her forever, she watches herself morph into a person she no longer recognizes. A person she quickly grows to hate.

Barely making it through each day, Phoebe struggles to repress her darkest thoughts. But at night, she is held captive in nightmares from which she cannot escape.

With her marriage dangling by a thread, Phoebe fears a future with Justin may no longer be possible.

Refusing to give up, Justin fights for the life they used to share. But when he stumbles upon what could be the missing piece to Phoebe’s past, he is faced with a choice that could cost him everything.

When you feel like all hope is lost, is there a love that can transcend all and revive a broken soul?

Excerpt

My mind has become consumed with anger, bitterness and resentment.  With my mother gone, pieces of my past have been lost forever.  I had desperately tried to respect my mother’s wishes and not ask about my father.  But deep inside, not knowing the truth left me feeling empty and incomplete – as if a part of me were locked away, just beyond my grasp.  I’d always assumed that my mother would eventually tell me the truth – when she was ready.  But now that she is gone, I don’t know how to cope with the fact that I will never truly understand who I am.
Justin doesn’t understand. I don’t think he ever really understood why it was so important for me to get answers. I should have known better than to try to talk to him about what I was feeling.  I wish I could rid myself of these terrible thoughts and haunting dreams. But I can’t and I’m spiraling out of control.  I feel myself slipping away from reality and from those around me.  I’m keeping everyone at a distance.  I’m terrified to let anyone see the person I’ve become.  But in doing so, I’m alienating every person who was ever close to me and feel more alone than ever.

Book: Cowboy Passion — Bakersville Saga 5 & 6
Author: Helen Hardt
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Cowboy

Synopsis:

Treasuring Amber
Kissing handsome rancher Harper Bay to avoid a confrontation with her past isn’t on Amber Cross’s “to do” list, but sometimes a situation calls for desperate measures. She doesn’t expect the kiss to leave her breathless.
Amber is the hottest thing walking but clearly not Harper’s type. Nope, he’s not looking for a platinum blonde manicurist from the city, even if she is Bakersville’s reigning rodeo queen. After her surprising kiss leaves him panting, he changes his mind and decides to get to know her. Chemistry sizzles between them, but this gorgeous woman has a past that could get them both killed.

Trusting Sydney

Sam O’Donovan is bored with his stale life in Montana. When his brother-in-law offers him a great job and a cut of the McCray Ranch in Bakersville, Colorado, he’s ecstatic. This is the change he needs. As for beautiful Sydney Buchanan resurfacing? That’s icing on the cake.

Sydney’s back in Bakersville for one reason and one reason only. She needs to win as many large rodeo purses as she can to help her parents run their struggling ranch in Nevada. She doesn’t bank on running into Sam O’Donovan. All the sparks they shared five years earlier are still there, but so much else has changed. If only Sam could understand the decisions she made during their time apart…and trust her.

Praise for Helen Hardt:

Helen Hardt writes as smooth as a hot knife cutting through butter. Her
words take you away and you feel like you are watching the story play out
right in front of you.

 

~Delightfully Dirty Reads~
Ms. Hardt has a way of writing that makes me forget I’m reading a book.
It’s more like slipping into a world she created and getting lost for a while.
~Whipped Cream Reviews~
Flawlessly written and in my opinion a work of art…
~Girly Girl Book Reviews~
