The Driftwood Promise

Free sample

Words would never be enough. He had to prove it.

From a young age, Erin McKinney has been taught that there’s only one man she can rely on—her older brother. The rest just aren’t worth the trouble. The one time she opened her heart and took a chance, the man reaffirmed her belief that it’s safer to be alone. It’s lonely, though, and living vicariously through her brother’s happiness isn’t doing the trick anymore.

Gideon St. Cloud might be the man to show her that good men still exist. He certainly made quite an impression the last time he was in town.

Returning to Sea Glass Cove to cool off in the middle of a heated custody battle for his son, Gideon knows he should ignore his curiosity about Erin, but he can’t get her out of his head. Quiet and reserved, she is a world away from his flaky ex-girlfriend and could be exactly what he wants in a woman. But she’s wary.

In the shelter of her driftwood forts, he’ll find out why she distrusts men… and discover how he can prove he isn’t like the men who hurt her.

About the author

Maren Ferguson is the "sweet" alter ego of USA Today bestselling author Suzie O'Connell, who is best known for the Northstar romances.
 
Though she is a self-professed mountain-loving nerd, she has a fair amount of salt water in her veins, courtesy of her "salty dog" grandfather, and once in a while, she gets to craving the crashing ocean surf. It was during one of these episodes that the Sea Glass Cove series was conceived.
 
Suzie has been writing stories for as long as she can remember, and it shouldn't come as any surprise that her first story, written (and illustrated) way back in second grade, was about the mouse who went to the sea.
 
When she isn't writing, you'll probably find her in the mountains with a camera in hand and enjoying the beauty of Montana with her husband Mark, their daughter Maddie, and their golden retriever Reilly. You might even find her--on her rare trips to the coast--getting in touch with her inner pirate. Just kidding. Sort of.

Lindsay Miller and Henry Hammond aren't looking for love, but a pact to have a little fun together may turn into something a lot bigger… and last a lot longer than her vacation.

 

Lindsay has sworn off men until her son is old enough not to be hurt by them, but on a kid-free vacation to see her best friend married off, she has a chance to remember that she’s a woman with needs and not only a struggling single mother. A casual fling with a willing cowboy might be just what she needs, and Henry fits that description.

 

Devastated after learning that his son isn’t his, Henry is in no mood to entertain ideas about starting a new relationship, but when Lindsay boldly introduces herself, he’s intrigued. She’s fiercely independent but also vulnerable and burned-out from dating the wrong men. A mutual agreement for a one-night stand turns into a week-long adventure, and even after Lindsay returns home to Washington, Henry can’t stop thinking about her. This could be the real deal, but how can he prove that she and her son are more than a rebound family for him when they’re seven hundred miles away?

Heather Brown is strong, confident, and successful, and as far as Jeremiah Mackey is concerned, she has it all. So why does she keep walking away from good men?

 

It’s Heather’s thirtieth birthday, and she’s newly single. Again. Her family isn’t going to be happy about that, and she’s in no mood to endure their disappointment. When Jeremiah offers to help her salvage her birthday, she can’t say no. She quickly finds out there’s more to him than she ever realized. He’s different than any man she’s dated, and he might have exactly what she’s been missing all this time. But with her family openly disapproving of him, how can it last?

 

Jeremiah has made a lot of mistakes in his life, and he's spent time behind bars because of them. But eleven years ago, the same sheriff’s deputy who arrested him offered him a chance to turn his life around, and he took it without looking back. Now that he finally has a chance with Heather, his future is looking brighter than ever… until someone from his past starts playing games with him—someone he knows would like to see him and the interfering deputy dead.

A strong-willed woman, a heart-weary deputy, and a cozy mountain cabin. What could possibly go wrong… or right? Aelissm Davis and Pat O’Neil are about to find out.

 

A talented crafter in a male-dominated field, Aelissm is perfectly capable of managing her own affairs, but when it comes to an obsessive friend, she may be in over her head. When returning home to Northstar doesn’t get her point across, she swallows her pride and calls in reinforcements. Unfortunately, her meddling uncle’s solution—send his best deputy “on vacation” to protect her—could be an even bigger complication. With sad eyes and a gentle heart, Deputy O’Neil is definitely that.

 

For three years, Pat has buried himself in his work to get past a violent relationship, and it hasn’t done him any good. Maybe this assignment to protect his boss’s niece will give him the perspective he needs. Aelissm is an irresistible breath of fresh mountain air and like no woman he’s ever met, but as his heart learns how to breathe again, her past entwines with his and trouble comes knocking. Will she let him do his job, or will her stubborn independence put them both in danger?

Shane McGuire and Becky Epperson have a history. They might have had much more, but instead, he broke her heart. Now they’re both back in Northstar, and he’ll do everything he can to win her back.

 

Becky has been away from home far too long, and even the knowledge that Shane is moving home can’t dim her joy at being back amongst the people and she loves. She can find a way to get along with him… right? Time has dulled the heartbreak, and to be perfectly honest, she’s tired of pretending she doesn’t still love him. That doesn’t mean she’s going to give him a second chance, and as long as she remembers why she shouldn’t, everything should be just fine.

The friendship and passion that brought them together in the first place is as irresistible as ever, but Shane has his work cut out for him. It’s going to take much more than a simple apology to convince Becky to forgive him. He doesn't care. The best things in life rarely come easy, and she’s the only woman for him. All he needs is the opportunity to show her he’ll never hurt her again… but what if she won’t give him one?

Will an act of selfish brutality bring lifelong friends Beth Carlyle and Nick Hammond closer together… or will the trauma drive them apart?


At the start of her final year of college, Beth’s greatest worries are passing all her classes and enjoying her last months of freedom before she steps into the future she’s dreamed of all her life. When her boyfriend turns violent after a fun night on the town, that future shatters. Forget those kids she wanted and forget ever enjoying a man’s touch again. All she has left is her family’s ranch… and Nick.

 

When Nick jumps in to protect Beth, his future is thrown into chaos. He’s always been sure of his life’s path—when his father retires, he’ll inherit his family’s sprawling ranch. It’s the only life he wants, and he might lose it all if he can’t convince his family he’s doing the right thing by defending Beth in the aftermath of that awful night. As the boundaries of their relationship shift, a love neither expected takes root, but unless Beth can find the courage to keep Nick from facing undeserved consequences, this tentative hope for a future together will wither.
