I thought I had it all figured out...

And then he showed up.


Growing up in a small town, I had one singular goal — get the heck out. After high school graduation, I never planned on coming back.


But, sometimes life can throw some serious curveballs, and when I’m fired from my job, I go to the one safe place I can think of — my family’s inn.


And that’s where I meet him.


Aiden Fisher is a British artist who has taken up residence across the hallway. He’s wicked hot, a huge flirt and has one of the sexiest accents I’ve ever heard.


Suddenly the idea of this small town doesn’t sound so horrible.


But can I trust a man I just met... with my heart?

One twinkling winter’s night, Ruby wakes her sleeping children and escapes for a new life in the countryside. It’s a choice that will change her life beyond all recognition…

 

Arriving at the cosy little rental cottage as the first snow begins to fall, Ruby doesn’t regret leaving her bully of a husband for a moment, but she does feel guilty about uprooting her kids so close to Christmas. She can only wish that one day soon her son will forgive her.

 

It’s not long before the family are settled in and drinking hot chocolate by the fire, the flames kept roaring by a neighbouring woodsman called Angus. As big as a tree, but as gentle as a dormouse, all Ruby’s instincts tell her to be wary of letting this gorgeous stranger get too close. Is that the first tingle of festive magic Ruby can feel? Or might it even be hope?

 

As Christmas day approaches and a blizzard sparks a power cut across the entire village, Ruby must force herself to believe in Christmas miracles again. Was she right to put her trust in Angus? With only flickering candles to guide her through the darkness, will she ever find her way back to the light?

 

Wrap yourself up in this utterly gorgeous festive romance, perfect for anyone who loves Heidi Swan, Jenny Colgan, Lucy Diamond – and Christmas!

 

**This novel can be read as a standalone.**

Emily Sue Harvey's work touches readers in profound ways. Coffee Time Romance called Song of Renewal, "a must-read book for anyone doing a little soul searching." Of Flavors, Black Diamond's Book Reviews said, “I loved everything about this book! This is just an all around excellent book that is sure to bring memories back from times when life was a lot more simple.” And, in speaking of Homefires, The Book Tree said, "Emily Sue Harvey has now become a new favorite author for me after reading this book."Now, in Space, Emily Sue delivers us a deeply moving story of a family on the brink. Dan and Deede Stowe have worked for years, planning and saving for their idyllic retirement years. Just when they finally are about to realize their dream, their adult, recovering drug-addict daughter, Faith, moves back in with them and everything changes. Their “miracle child”, complete with druggie baggage, upsets the tranquil balance of the Stowe’s existence. Private romantic moments evaporate. Faith’s endless needs intrude hour by hour, devouring both their finances, their emotions, and most crucially, their space. In turn, Faith finds herself bereft of everything she cherished most, her health, her marriage, her child, her family, her reputation and, most of all, a space to call her own.Amid chaotic challenges, all three battle to find peace with each other, a harmony that doggedly eludes them. For the sake of family solidarity, each is forced to sacrifice elemental components of self, until desperation turns them one against the other. Will love be enough to turn the tide? Is it strong enough to warm again hearts grown cold?Space is a vivid, candid, and life-affirming story from a masterful storyteller of the heart.
Wedding Bells in Magdalena!
