Stand-alone Hope Falls romance, complete with HEA—and plenty of heat and heart along the way!

“Love is a responsibility. Love is a promise. Love is a life sentence.” – Grandpa Doug

Hotshot Evan Bishop was taught at a very early age that love was something to be taken seriously. The thirty-four-year-old alpha firefighter had only loved one woman his entire life, his childhood sweetheart who just told him she was engaged to another man. So when he locks eyes with a blue-eyed, blonde bombshell who has him falling fast at first sight, his instinct is to deny it, ignore it, and resist it.  

Actress Shayne Fox was taught at a very early age that love was a luxury that she couldn’t afford. From growing up in foster care to working in Hollywood, the beautiful ingénue's only concern was survival not love. So when she locks eyes with a tall, dark, and sexy stranger who has her wanting something that she never allowed herself to feel, her instinct is to dismiss it, suppress, and avoid it.

He was used to being in control of all things at all times but would he be able to control his heart? She was used to life giving her lemons but would she recognize it when it gave her love?

Sometimes the path of least resistance is the one that is the hardest to take.

For Amanda Jacobs, dealing with the pain of losing her beloved Dad is the toughest thing she's ever gone through, and it comes with a lot of complications, as well - like taking over the family business, Mountain Ridge Outdoor Adventures. It makes her miss the simplicity of being a teenager, when she was surrounded by her amazing friends, The Fabulous Four, and she was madly in love with her Dad's right hand man, Justin Barnes. His sexy smiles and deep brown eyes had made her heart race in a way she's never felt before or since. When the Fabulous Four unexpectedly show up on her doorstep to support her through this complicated time, things seem to be looking up for Amanda. But that's not the only surprise visit in store for her...

 Justin Barnes left Hope Falls ten years ago, in the dead of night, and didn't think he'd ever set foot there again. That was just fine with him, except for one little complication: Amanda Jacobs. He had fallen in love with her unruly blonde curls and sparkling sapphire eyes, but she had been a teenager then, five years younger than he - too young for him to act on his attraction. Still, he'd missed her every single day of those ten years. When Justin receives a phone call that his former mentor has passed away, he knows he has to return to Hope Falls. Justin just has one question - will the girl that once adored him have grown into a woman that can't stand him? Or will she still be the only thing in the world that feels like home?

 **Author's Note: Each Hope Falls full-length novel can be read as a stand-alone**
