Eight years ago, Erin Donahue had it all–her own city apartment, a career in photography, and a man who’d do anything for her. But things change. Fate steps in. Now, living in the small town of Destiny, IL, Erin embraces her new life, free of hurting anyone else. She’s all alone, and she likes it like that. Independent, strong…and broken. Until a handsome, divorced rancher drives up her lane and drags her back into a past she wants to forget.
A forbidden crush born long ago…
In Afghanistan, Slade Callahan tucks Erin into his dreams and his heart. Guilt plagues him for wanting her when she isn’t his to want. She belongs to his older brother. But when Erin breaks his brother’s heart, she never realizes she’s breaking two. Honor keeps him from going after her. Discharged from the Marines, Slade moves on with his life and lets her go. Until tragedy strikes. His brother is dead.Found in his car with two letters…one to his wife–and one to Erin.
A letter full of hope and secrets…
Erin and Slade come together, fighting a love that won’t let go. Tormented by guilt, shame, anger, and the need to forgive, walls slowly crumble. Setting off a firestorm of buried passions, they embrace the truth in the stars. But their journey is only beginning when the letter is read. Decisions must be made. Is Erin strong enough to accept herself and trust in this beautiful love, or will she repeat history with another Callahan man?
These can all be read as standalone books in no particular order. All couples are different and no continuation of stories, but they are set in the same town of Destiny
I going to come clean. I struggled with this story a little bit. Not with getting into it. Not with finishing it. But rather, with the actions and emotions of the leading lady, and the somewhat clinical tone to the narrative.
Honestly, Erin was all over the place. I didn’t really believe the connection between her and Slade and didn’t understand her ultimate response to Todd’s revelations as explained in the letter.
This, coupled with the lack of resonance with the narrative voice, meant that, for me at least, this was a tale which fell firmly in the neutral category of story – I neither loved nor hated it.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Nancy Glynn was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, the setting for all her stories. In her stories, you’ll find strong, independent women with big hearts. These ladies are in their 30’s and know what they want and don’t want in a man. The leading men will make you drool, not only at their sexy appearance but by the way they treat their women. They are always gentlemen but passionate lovers. When they realize they are in love, nothing stops them from proving it. In the Town of Destiny series, you will meet these couples, all different from each book. And Never Let Her Go, And Never Say Goodbye, and soon-to-be published And Never Lose His Heart.
When not writing, Nancy is laughing with her three teens, being treated like a queen by her adoring husband, and cuddling with her three dogs and bunny.
Follow along with the same-town series, Town of Destiny, and fall in love with each new couple as they take their journey founded on fate. These stories will have a meant-to-be story line driven by the hands of fate, woven through strange circumstances, and finding the love they were meant to have.
