"An absolutely wonderful contemporary romance. A delightful blend of humor and emotion." – Kristin Hannah on Finding You 



 

After tragedy struck, Carla Candellano retreated from an elite search and rescue squad to her hometown, where she's safe from everything except her Italian mama's meddling. When a handsome stranger moves in next door, Carla can't help being drawn to Jackson Wyatt and the silent child at his side.



 

Reese hasn't spoken since her mother died, so Jackson brought her to Chandler in hopes that the beach-town charm would bring back the laughing little girl she once was. This is not the time for the strongest desire he's ever felt. He should be focused on Reese, not falling for the beautiful woman next door. But how can he stay away when his precious daughter soaks in the affection of Carla and the close-knit Candellanos? And when his own heart begins to feel again for the first time in a very long time?



 

Over one passionate summer, Carla and Jackson will discover that no matter where you try to hide, destiny has a way of finding you.

Editorial Reviews

"Helen has weaved a delicately balanced story of intrigue, secrets and passion, which practically melts the pages." -Bare Naked Words

"The love story between Talon and Jade continues in Obsession. An apt title to be sure, because everyone is obsessed. Dear Ms. Helen Hardt, I toss many profanities your way for making me wait. Though I give you my deepest gratitude for building the anticipation of what I’m sure will be an epic culmination to an amazing series. " -Heroes and Heartbreakers

"Talon and Jade's chemistry sizzles and the love scenes will melt your heart and your Kindle." -The Book Sirens

"I am loving this series so freaking much… The story line is one that will have you completely engrossed…" -Wicked Babes Blog

Synopsis

Jade Roberts is in love with Talon Steel but no longer welcome in his home. While she resolves to move on, she still longs for the passion she and Talon shared…and when her boss asks her to dig up information on the Steels, she’s only too happy to comply. Talon and his brothers are hiding something, and Jade is determined to find out what it is.

The moment Talon saw Jade he wanted her, ached for her, craved her…and now his desire has become his obsession. He knows she deserves better than his broken soul, but he can’t stay away from her, and he finally confesses his love. If he and Jade are to have a future, he knows he must make peace with the dark shadows and horrors of his past.

But as Talon begins his journey of healing, Jade uncovers some startling secrets…

“...both a love story and a story of personal growth.” —Jill M. Smith, Romantic Times, 41/2, Top Pick

Cleo Alyssum's plan is simple: stay sober, stay out of trouble, and bite her tongue until Social Services sees she’s pretty close to perfect and returns her little boy. But when an accident on her isolated property forces her to rent a cottage to celebrated cartoonist Jared McCloud, her carefully constructed comfort zone develops cracks.

Jared has a deadline to meet or he’ll forfeit still another lucrative career and be branded for life by his family as the loser in the family. Only, he wasn’t meant to be a hermit, and his cartoon characters aren’t nearly as fascinating as his quirky, enigmatic landlady.

When Jared discovers his island hideaway contains a drug-dealing neighbor’s two neglected, abused teens, he shoves Cleo into the real world that she fears in his effort to save the children.

Risking everything, the pair join forces to find a home for the kids and have their mother’s dangerous boyfriend locked up. In the process, they face a new realization that there’s more to life and love than either of them ever planned or dreamed.
