About the book:

Becky Wade Is the New Name to Know in Contemporary Romance

Deeply scarred from a day he wishes he could forget during his military service, Thoroughbred trainer Jake Porter has given up on love. He struggles against symptoms of PTSD, lives a solitary life, and avoids relationships.

When Lyndie James, Jake's childhood best friend, returns to their hometown of Holley, Texas, Jake cautiously hires her to exercise his Thoroughbreds. Lyndie is tender-hearted, fiercely determined, and afraid of nothing, just like she was as a child. Jake trusts her with his prized racehorse, Silver Leaf, then battles his hopes for his horse against his increasing fear for Lyndie's safety.

Though Jake and Lyndie have grown into very different adults, the bond that existed during their childhood still ties them together. Against Jake's will, Lyndie's sparkling, optimistic personality begins to tear down the walls he's built around his heart. A glimmer of the hope he'd thought he'd lost returns. Will Jake ever be able to love Lyndie like she deserves, or is his heart too shattered to mend?

Why I want to read this book:

I've been waiting for Jake's book for a while and I'm so excited about this book!

  2. Yay! Thank you for listing A Love Like Ours in your 'Waiting On Wednesday' feature, Melanie. I just received the final, type-set version of this manuscript yesterday. After Christmas, I'll read through it one last time, then my role in the book's creation will be at an end. That milestone always makes me a bit teary. It's a bit like sending a child off to college (but on a much, much smaller scale, of course). :) Jake, especially, will be hard to part from. I've known him for several books now and loved writing his story. Merry Christmas!!

  3. Me too, Melanie! Cannot wait to read this one either. Its release date seems so far off, but I suspect it'll arrive before we know it. :)
