From the New York Times bestselling author of Archer’s Voice, Mia Sheridan delivers a heartwrenching new stand-alone contemporary romance.

A broken woman . . .

Crystal learned long ago that love brings only pain. Feeling nothing at all is far better than being hurt again. She guards her wounded heart behind a hard exterior and carries within her a deep mistrust of men, who, in her experience, have only ever used and taken.

A man in need of help . . .

Then Gabriel Dalton walks into her life. Despite the terrible darkness of his past, there’s an undeniable goodness in him. And even though she knows the cost, Crystal finds herself drawn to Gabriel. His quiet strength is wearing down her defenses and his gentle patience is causing her to question everything she thought she knew.

Only love can mend a shattered heart . . .

Crystal and Gabriel never imagined that the world, which had stolen everything from them, would bring them a deep love like this. Except fate will only take them so far, and now the choice is theirs: Harden their hearts once again or find the courage to shed their painful pasts.

Now here’s an excerpt from Most of All You! ❤

excerpt button

I swallowed heavily, my mouth going dry as I took in the masculine beauty of his practically naked body. He was…divine. That was the word that immediately came to mind. Divine. Angelic. Godly.

My gaze soaked in his strong, broad shoulders, the tight, lean muscles of his chest, the taut ripples of his stomach. As if my eyes were drawn to him like a magnet, they moved down his chest to his muscled thighs, his well-formed calves and then back up to his boxers, where the outline of his male anatomy was just barely visible against the thin material.

My core clenched, wetness pooling between my thighs. I blinked, completely unaccustomed to this kind of reaction when it came to a man’s body. I wanted to simultaneously run away and step toward him, to reach out and trail a finger down his chest the way I’d just run a finger over the tiny stone bird.

“My father made that.”

“W-what?” God, my voice sounded too breathy, too stunned.

“The sparrow.”

He crossed his arms over his chest, obviously self-conscious about his state of undress. He gave a quick nod downward. “Sorry, I didn’t know you’d be up.”

Again, my eyes moved to his bare chest. There was a sparse trail of hair under his belly button leading into the waistband of his boxers. My eyes leapt back up to his, and I practically gulped, sure he had heard it when his eyebrows twitched slightly.

I turned my head, my heart beating so loudly in my own ears I was sure he could hear that, too, even from where he stood. “It’s only fair, I suppose,” I murmured.

“What’s that?”

“Now we’ve both seen each other half-naked.”

Gabriel tilted his head, assessing me in some mysterious way. He suddenly turned and walked back toward his room. I stood rooted to the spot, confused, when he returned just as quickly as he’d left, pulling a T-shirt over his head. He walked toward me, coming to stand directly in front of where I stood. His expression was slightly shy, slightly teasing. “I hope…that if we see each other naked again, it won’t be a job, or an accident. It will be because we both want it, and because it means something.”

What?

Visions swirled through my mind, unbidden: tangled limbs and twisted sheets. Heat filled my veins, blood pumping between my legs. It was too much. It was…out of my control and it scared me. I didn’t want to think of Gabriel that way, couldn’t think of Gabriel that way. In truth, had never thought of any man that way. “Mean something?” My voice was a mere whisper.

He nodded, his expression going serious, his eyes filled with sudden gravity. His hand slowly moved up to my hair, and he brushed a piece back from my face. His hand lingered, his knuckle brushing gently down my cheekbone. My breath hitched at the subtle touch. His full lips parted slightly, those angel eyes moving over my features as if he was memorizing me, memorizing the moment. I was spellbound, caught once again in his gaze. No one had ever looked at me the way Gabriel was right then, not in all my life.

“Yes.” It was all he said, leaving me to try to comprehend his meaning. But of course getting naked always meant something. A bribe, a paycheck, a coercion, a means to an end…only I knew very well Gabriel didn’t mean any of those things, and it was impossible to convince myself he could. I already knew better. And I didn’t want to think about what getting naked would mean to Gabriel because the very idea filled me with terror and an aching, needy want. But mostly terror.

Cover Reveal: Midnight Lily by Mia Sheridan

Midnight Lily by Mia Sheridan

Midnight Lily by Mia Sheridan
Series: A Sign of Love #9 (full reading order below)
Publication Date: March 15th 2016
Add to Goodreads

Holden Scott is the prince of professional football. At least he was before he lost it all . . . or more to the point, before he threw it all away. Now he’s out of a job, out of the public’s good graces, and perhaps just a little out of his mind. So when a friend offers up his remote lodge in the wilds of Colorado, giving Holden some time away to get his life back on track, he can hardly say no. The last thing he expects is to see a beautiful girl in the woods—one wearing a white, lace dress who appears in the moonlight, and leaves no footprints behind. Is she a dream? A ghost? A product of his muddled imagination? Or something entirely different?

Midnight Lily is the haunting love story of two lost souls reaching for each other in the dark. A tale of healing, acceptance, and the worlds we create to protect our own hearts. It is a story of being lost, of being found, and of being in the place between.

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY VIRGO. Non-Paranormal, New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Release Day Review: Grayson’s Vow by Mia Sheridan

Grayson's Vow by Mia Sheridan

Grayson’s Vow by Mia Sheridan
Series: A Sign of Love #8 (full reading order below)
Publication Date: September 10th 2015
Links: EbookPaperback • Audible • Goodreads
Source: I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review

Kira Dallaire is desperate.

Some challenges in life seem too hard to overcome. With little money, and even fewer options, the quick-witted and vibrant twenty-two-year-old needs to reinvent herself. Known for her generous heart and impulsive personality, she devises a survival plan, possibly her most outrageous idea yet.

Grayson Hawthorn is losing hope.

Some obstacles in life seem too hard to overcome. Betrayal definitely being one of them. With limited capital, and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard, a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail. That is until a young woman enters his office with an outlandish, unexpected proposition impossible to refuse.

What begins as a temporary business arrangement, soon evolves into more as vivacious, spirited Kira challenges detached, arrogant Grayson to want more from life. To want more for himself. But as their wills clash and fiery passion ignites, they’ll realize that sometimes the past creates walls too difficult to climb, and that lies and deception rarely precede a happily every after.

As Kira and Grayson race toward their destiny, they will discover that some vows are meant to be broken, and others are worth risking everything for . . . even your very own heart.

Mia Sheridan is an author whose books I will never hesitate to read. Her books – her words – pack such a powerful punch, it’s honestly exhilarating to read her stories. And her stories are so gorgeous and romantic. Her latest A Sign of Love novel, Grayson’s Vow, very much felt like a fairy-tale romance. I loved the setting of the vineyard and I loved how Mia Sheridan created two flawed, broken characters who find love and hope in each other. I wholehearted enjoyed Grayson’s Vow, and though it may not be my favorite of the series, THIS book is the only one that made me tear up.

“Love is not always smooth and easy. Love can be piercing. Love means exposing yourself–all of yourself, every tender part–to being hurt. Because true love is not only the flower, true love is also the thorns.”

Grayson Hawthorn is trying to restore the failing family vineyard his father left him, but with no money, no working equipment, and so few workers, he’s losing hope that he’ll be able to fulfill his final vow to his father. Then, like a godsend, Kira Dallaire comes into his life and makes him a deal – they get married and convince the public that their marriage is real, and Kira will give Grayson enough money to restore the vineyard. But Kira isn’t really making this deal out of the kindness of her heart – she’s desperate herself, broke, and in need of the money that she only has access to once she gets married. So theirs is an arrangement made out of desperation, but one that ends in hope.

Kira and Grayson may need each other, but it’s clear that from the very first moment they meet, they don’t like each other. Grayson is quite the ass to Kira, making quick judgements about her that aren’t necessarily true. Kira definitely doesn’t hold back against Grayson, and the two go head-to-head, fighting and provoking each other. Underneath it all, though, is an intense sexual tension that the two try to ignore, but can’t.

“Oh, I dare you,” she said, something fiery and thrilling in her eyes. “Show me that dragonish side. Do your worst.”
I stepped in immediately to the challenge. “Dragonish? Oh, my little wife, you haven’t even glimpsed dragonish yet.”

Grayson holds so much pain and hurt within him because of the lonely life he’s lived, that he lashes out against the people around him, especially Kira. This is why it was difficult to like him for pretty much the first half of the book. He’s just so… mean to Kira, so he had a lot of making up to do in my eyes. Kira, thankfully, stands up to Grayson, and she was the highlight of this book. I really enjoyed her warmth, her huge heart, and the way she views the world so optimistically, unlike Grayson. These two are very different characters, but they manage to balance each other out in the most perfect way. And the way they slowly fall in love… it’s breathtaking and beautiful and so heart-wrenching.

She was everything to me: my dreams, my weakness, and the person who made me want to be strong. She was the one woman who showed me I mattered, that I was wanted. That I was enough.

I liked this book, I really did, but I just didn’t LOVE it like I expected to. It was slow going for the first half of the book, but once the pace picked up, I couldn’t stop reading. I didn’t really connect emotionally for the majority of the book, though, since Grayson and Kira are at each other’s throats for so long. It took a little too long for me to become invested in these two characters, but when I finally did, the story swept me away. I even TEARED UP at some parts of the book, I was so swept up in the emotions this book brought out in me. I wholeheartedly suggest you don’t give up on this book if, like me, you feel the story dragging a bit, because the end will be so worth it (the epilogue is one of the most gorgeous things I’ve ever read!). Grayson’s Vow isn’t quite as epic as Mia Sheridan’s previous incredible works (Becoming Calder/Finding Eden will forever be my favorites of the series), but with the author’s beautiful writing, I couldn’t not enjoy it. I still think this book is a fantastic love story, a very worthwhile read, and one fans of the series should not miss.

“True love is the greatest leap of faith there is.”
