A New Forever
Best-selling authors, Alta Hensley and Carolyn Faulkner, collaborate once again to bring you this contemporary Western tale that will leave you laughing, crying, and falling in love.
Her mother always said that people will come and go in your life, but family is forever. Elodie West, however, soon finds out the hard way that there is no such thing as forever, that the seemingly wise words of her mother are not actually true.
This is a harsh reality that Elodie's ex brother-in-law is experiencing, as well. Clay Carver is now alone, running a ranch by himself, his only solace being his monthly lunches with his ex-sister-in-law, Elodie West. Since the death of his wife and Elodie’s sister, April, all Clay has for comfort is the ranch he loves and his short visits with Elodie.
But as the years pass and their friendship progresses, Clay and Elodie begin to discover that there may be so much more to look forward to in their otherwise bleak lives. Finally, there is a light in that darkness… a bright light that leads to love, hope, a possible future. Together.
When the two find comfort in one other, is it possible to find a new beginning, or will the past get in the way? Can Clay find room in his broken heart for Elodie? And can Elodie reconcile herself with the guilt of finding happiness when her dear sister is gone? When everything they both dreamed and hoped for is lost, can Elodie and Clay find… a new forever?
**Warning: This book contains strong Domestic Discipline themes and spanking.
I loved this book from the first page. Deep and thoughtful, it brought out the conflicting emotions Elodie had for her brother in law Clay. She is grieving the death of her sister and struggles with the fact that she fell in love with him the moment she met him with April brought him home to meet the family. This story will make you laugh, cry and turn the pages long after you should be asleep. Elodie is a vulnerable woman but a prideful one and doesn't want Clay to know just how hot he makes her-even when she is starting to get clues that he may feel the same way. Hot scenes, spankings to melt your panties and character interplay that will leave you sighing. Oh yes. Get this book. It will make your heart sing.
