After nine years the once poor and shamed Ivan Kray is back in London, now a world-famous rock star. He is wealthy, adored by fans, and built like a machine while she is struggling, single, overweight, and has to borrow affection from her neighbor’s cat.

He swore he’d be her first and last, and he’s not a man who breaks his promises. His plans of submitting Alice to his will are hampered when someone tries to kill him.

"Dreams of Home"

Dreams of Home by Jannie Lund

Austin Harris spent years in the Army fighting for and dreaming of home. And of Fleur Walker. Now he’s out—home in Morello Cove—and it’s nothing like he thought it would be. Dark thoughts keep him from finding out who the civilian version of himself is, and he’s not at all convinced the light shining brightly in the woman he’s always loved from afar is enough to save him. It might very well be that the darkness inside of him will destroy her instead.

It’s not easy loving someone who doesn’t want to be loved. Fleur Walker has learned that the hard way. It’s not even easy to keep your self-respect while trying to balance one-sided love and the art of compromising. Things were supposed to get easier when Austin came home, but they get more and more muddled, and even the most patient woman has her limits.

Both fighting inner battles, Austin and Fleur can’t also fight temptation. So they give in to it. The result is not something either of them can live with, but they have very different solutions on how to fix the little four-letter problem called LOVE.
