About this ebook

The Montgomery Ink saga from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with a steamy new series.

Years ago, Annabelle Montgomery married not for love but for a promise of hope. When she lost him weeks later, she told herself she never needed those sentiments again. Only when she discovers years later that her new neighbor is her late husband’s brother, Annabelle finds she can’t quite shake the emotions she’s long since buried.

Jacob Queen vowed he’d never set eyes on Annabelle again. When they’re forced into each other’s lives once more, they realize that no matter how far they run, no distance can keep them apart forever. More than ghosts lay between them, and when they finally give in to temptation, walking away whole may no longer be an option.

**There is a bonus epilogue exclusively in the audio and ebook editions!**

This author is still fairly new to me and I’m slowly playing catch up with the Montgomery Ink Series, I’m loving everything about this family and I’m still amazed that Ms Ryan hasn’t crossed my radar before now. I was excited for the latest instalment Inked Persuasion and this book was everything I expected and so much more. Annabelle Montgomery married her best friend not for love but for hope and after losing him a few weeks later she finds herself having to deal with her ex brother in law Jacob Queen when he moves in next door to her. Jacob can’t understand why Annabelle married his brother Jonah and it takes a while for him to understand why we sometimes do things just to make someone important to us happy, even it’s only for a short time. This couple have a lot of baggage and at times it seems the past will keep Jacob and Annabelle as enemies rather than lovers. Outside influences seem intent on keeping this couple apart so will the baggage and the past make them stronger or tear them apart..... This emotional roller coaster touched me on so many levels, I loved this couple and I found myself hoping and wishing they would see what was right in front of their eyes, I was kept on the edge of my seat as I watched them getting to know each other, I smiled at the witty banter and I shed a few tears along the way, I swooned and I sighed at the electrifying chemistry they shared and at times I wanted to shake some sense into Jacob. This is a beautifully written, steamy romance that I highly recommend to all romance lovers. Can’t wait for more from the Montgomery family.

Four and a half stars Inked Persuasion by Carrie Ann Ryan is the first in the Montgomery Ink: Fort Collins spin-off, and is about Annabelle Montgomery and Jacob Queen. Nearly a decade ago, Annabelle married Jonah Queen, to fulfill a dying friend's most cherished wish and to bring some light and hope to a family and situation that sorely needed it. Now her late husband's brother is her neighbor, and maybe there's a possibility for something more. Inked Persuasion is bursting with Carrie Ann Ryan's signatures--deeply loving and all-up-in-your-business family and friends who are like family, tangled and heartfelt emotions, tricky situations to navigate with people they love and people who ostensibly love them... Inked Persuasion stands alone well, but it's likely you'll look forward to more the Fort Collins' Montgomery family's tales, and be inspired to pick up some of the original Montgomery stories as well!

This is the first book in a new series still in the Montgomery series line. Jacob and Annabel so much history between the two misunderstandings and lack of communication between them for many years until they wake up to find out their neighbors now. Even though Jacob vows to never speak to Annabel and wants nothing to do with her the chemistry between them is still there, watching them navigate through these new feelings with a little bit of old ones is captivating. This book captures you right at the beginning and it doesn’t let go! I could not put it down loved it great beginning to another amazing series by Carrie Ann Ryan ..
