I have five great books and authors to tell you about … and to show our appreciation for visiting here, Black Lyon is giving away one ebook (any one of your choice from the five featured this week) to each of three different winners."
Shadow Lake by M. Jean Pike
This is the third Black Lyon release by M. Jean Pike, one of the most amazing authors I’ve come across in years. Her characters are simply… “real.” Shadow Lake is a contemporary romance without a lot of the steam you see in many romances these days, and that formula proves heartwarming and poignant. (I’ve yet to see an M. Jean Pike book that doesn’t make me cry at least twice!) Jean has a fascinating list of personal interests, ranging from psychology/mental health to antiques to the supernatural. Those interests translate to an innate ability to capture a sense of fate in her romance novels. It’s spooky how well she makes a reader believe in destiny with her characters! Shadow Lakeis also the first book in her planned “Love on the Lake” series. I can’t wait to see the rest.
So love found them.
Sexy campground owner Shane Lucy needs summer help. Divorced and raising a teenage son alone, the idea of finding love is the last thing on his mind. Yet there’s something sincere and kind about lovely Emma, something genuine unlike anything he’s encountered before.
Emma Beckman is trying to pick up the threads of her unraveled life. Recently widowed, she ventures into Shadow Lake for the prospect of tranquility and a new summer job. Her new boss is a prospect all his own—a magical, beautiful prospect … of love on the lake.
