Unfortunately, Emma’s reckless behavior leaves him doubting she can be level-headed and business savvy. Every one of his instincts tells him to walk away, but she’s a temptation he can’t seem to deny. He’s inexplicably drawn to the lightness in her, especially when he knows just how dark the world can be. Against his better judgment, Tobias ignores his instincts and proceeds to form a partnership with Emma.

When Thomas Quinn is eight-years-old, he asks a promise of an Irish sea captain: “If ever I should become like me father will you dunk me under the water ’til I cannot breathe? Will you, sir, please?”

The captain agrees.

Ten years later, Thomas is a womanizer, a thief and a drunk, who remembers a promise, but doesn’t know what it was about or who it was with. While flirting with a young woman in a Galway marketplace, he is accosted by her grandfather who knows far more about him than he should.

Spooked, Thomas goes on a drunken binge. Late that night, he is knocked out by someone wielding a club. When he wakes, he finds himself tied to a ship’s yardarm by his ankles and dunked over and over into Galway Bay until he cannot breathe. Only then does he learn that the young woman’s grandfather is captain of the ship.

Kidnapped and taken out to sea, Thomas fights with the sailors, steals ale from the hold, runs from a battle with a female pirate and falls in love with the captain’s granddaughter.

But it isn’t until he finds out who he really is that Thomas’ restless soul finds its way home.

About the Author:
I live in Washington D.C. where by day I work on public policy and by night I read authors who move me, and craft woman-centered fiction. I like all genres and think nothing is too trivial to read, or to write about. Relationships are my greatest obsession; how they work, why they don’t and what happens as they spin out of control, or come together perfectly. When I don’t write, I think about writing, and mine my experiences for things to write about. I hope you enjoy my work!

In Search of a Love Story (Love Story Book One) by Rachel Schurig

In Search of a Love Story (Love Story Book One) by Rachel Schurig

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Emily Donovan doesn’t have a romantic bone in her body.

At least, that’s what her friends Ryan and Ashley keep telling her. They’re convinced her bad luck with men is directly related to her life-long lack of interest in all things romantic. When Emily’s latest relationship crashes and burns, she decides to go along with her friends’ plans for a romance research project. Sure, the idea that she’ll have better luck if she learns about the great romances of literature and film seems a little silly, but Emily figures it can’t hurt.

In no time at all, Emily finds herself buried under a mountain of romance novels, chick flicks, and sappy love songs, hopeful that her hard work will pay off with true love. When she meets Greg, Ashley and Ryan are convinced she’s found prince charming—after all, he’s rich, handsome, and totally into Emily. What more could she want? And why does it seem that her friend Elliot isn’t exactly happy for her?

Faced with misunderstandings, miscommunications, and a seemingly endless string of missteps, she is nevertheless determined to give true love a try. In doing so, Emily will eventually find that true romance, the kind that lasts, has little to do with stereotypes or clichés, and everything to do with finding out what’s in her own heart.

This is book #1 of the Love Story series. Don’t miss the sequel, An Unexpected Love Story, out in December 2012!

Here’s a real reader review from Rachel Hanna’s Facebook fan page:

“Yaaay!!
I just finished reading Love In The Falls!!! BEST love story!! I
have enjoyed all 3 of your books!! I believe you are my new favorite
author. :) I love reading about the Georgia mountains (maybe because
I’m a Georgia Girl). I love the love behind the stories. I love that
they are not trashy or include too much drama. I love how they do not
go on and on with twists and turns so that I get lost. I love that
these books draw you in from the beginning and keep you glued to the
story!! THANK YOU THANK YOU! Can’t wait for more!!”

Here is a small sample of this book, which is 28,926 words:

The mountain air was crisp and cool as Natalie and Camden got out of her car. Camden was happy to be able to stretch her legs after the long car ride. She loved Natalie’s car in the city, but it wasn’t a great vehicle to take on such a long trip. At five foot six inches tall, Camden wasn’t exactly a tall person, but she had felt folded up inside of the Volkswagen for two hours.

The foliage in the mountains had already changed to shades of yellow, orange and gold which were breathtaking in their beauty. Camden remembered driving up to see the fall foliage with one of her high school boyfriends years ago. The mixture of colors was unlike anything she had ever seen.

Camden took in a deep breath of the mountain air as she closed her eyes.

“The city never smells this good,” she said to Natalie with a smile.

“I know. It’s invigorating, isn’t it?” Natalie said looking up at the trees in front of them. “Ready to hike?” she asked shutting the car door.

“Yep. Let’s do it,” Camden said as the pair started walking toward the paved pathway. Just then, the women heard a large truck pull into the parking lot. Out of it came a tiny blond woman with a miniskirt and a handsome and very tall man.

“Wow. Look at him. He’s very good looking,” Natalie said with a grin. “A little stubble, tousled hair, cowboy boots, tight jeans…”

“Nat! Think of Bruce!” Camden said giggling as she softly punched Natalie’s arm.

“Hey, I’m not the one who’s engaged!” Natalie said with a belly laugh. Her laugh was so loud that the man noticed them, and his eyes connected with Camden’s. For a split second, she felt an electric shock rock through her body.

“Mornin’, ladies,” he said tipping his well-worn baseball cap. His gray-blue eyes cut right through the cold Georgia air.

“Good morning,” Camden said quickly as she turned and walked toward the pathway. Natalie struggled to keep up with her.

“What was that about?” Natalie said as she caught up to Camden.

“Nothing. Just ready to hike.” Camden wasn’t sure what that strange feeling was in the pit of her stomach, but she knew if she looked at the handsome stranger for one more moment, she might be tempted to find out.
