Sara Michaels is single again. And she’s celebrating her thirtieth birthday with a complete spa makeover and a day of boutique shopping with her two best friends. After a ten-month battle for freedom, a long weekend in Nashville, Tennessee is just what she needs to erase the memories of a broken heart.

Jack Tanner is the soon-to-be new partner at Chester & Dorsey Development Firm. Jack’s love life has been on the back burner for years as he’s built a successful career. But the moment he meets Sara, he takes a hard look at his life and his priorities.

Sara steps out of her comfort zone and spends an unforgettable weekend with Jack. She’s never felt so carefree. Until she realizes too late that three days can change 

Find it:


Jack was leaning against a post, about halfway between the barn and the porch, when he saw Sara come out of the house.

God, she was gorgeous. Every inch of his body stirred as he watched her approach him in a pair of form-fitting black jeans. She had her hair down and wore a long necklace that hung low on her neck, bringing his eyes to the low cut of her shimmery blue blouse.

If that wasn’t enough to make his blood boil, she was wearing a pair of high-heeled black sandals that showed off her sexy red toenails he’d noticed the previous night.

He felt like a teenager going on his first date. He didn’t know what to say. You’re pretty didn’t seem to do justice, but he hated to be the slobbering fool, constantly telling her how beautiful or amazing she looked. Even though she did.

He wished their situation wasn’t so complicated. He was getting ready to make a huge move in his professional life that would take him farther away from her.

How could life be so cruel, to introduce him to such an amazing woman, the kind he could really see himself falling for, just to say that he couldn’t have her?

Or maybe life wasn’t saying he couldn’t have her. Maybe long distance was just temporary. Maybe . . .

About the author:

My husband and I live in the suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee with our eighteen-year-old son and three dogs. When I’m not working or writing, I can be found with family and friends. I love to bake in the winter, grill in the summer, and on occasion, I sneak away from everyone and curl up with a good book.

I hope you enjoy my stories. Each one touches on modern day issues, fears, and challenges that women face every day. And each one illustrates that love is within reach if you let down those walls and allow your heart to open. Our lives and experiences are so much more meaningful when we have someone to share them with.

Oh, this looks interesting! Thanks for sharing with us. I love finding new books by new authors! I also love this genre and I always wonder what made the author choose to write for this genre? Did they just fall into it or was it a planned and calculated move?
Thanks for the giveaway!

Sounds cool :p
Btw, is the giveaway INT? Cause I'd love an Amazon GC, but there are no Starbucks' around where I live.

Adding this one to my to-be-read list, sounds good! I love that it has Nashville as a setting. That's fairly close to my neck of the woods.

I like how it takes place in Nashville. I've never read a book that takes place there and that's really cool. :)

I love the green leafy vines on the cover! And I always love books set in the country :)

Pretty cover (horsie!) and the synopsis is interesting. Looks like a cute book :)

Sounds like a cute and sweet romance. Thanks for the giveaway!


Sounds cute! Sad that he finally found a piece of happiness but it's being taken away.

Of course Sara looks awesome when Jack first sees her, she just had a spa day. Developers jobs are pretty transient because they can only work where there is new land to be developed so I am sure that he moves to where she wants in the end.

Sounds like a great read - life is full of "spring surprises" isn't it?

Thanks for this lovely giveaway!

Thank you so much for the giveaway opportunity!

Sounds like a pretty good book!

I love stumbling upon new books on these blogs! This one looks like something I would really enjoy! I always wonder how much say an author has on the design of their cover. My brother is getting into the book designing business so it's something I'm especially interested in!
Thanks for the giveaway!

What is Twilight?


  1. The soft glowing light from the sky when the sun is below the horizon, caused by the reflection of the sun's rays from the atmosphere.
  2. The period of the evening during which this takes place, between daylight and darkness.
dusk - gloaming - nightfall
