I'm a New Englnder by birth and an Ohioan by choice. I followed the man I love. My husband and I make our home in a small, rural community and my children are scattered throughout the U.S. By day, I work with Special Education students, by night, I'm a writer and in between, I read, read, read.
For me, reading has always been an adventure. You never know where a book will take you. Will it make you laugh? Cry? Will you sit at the edge of your seat in anticipation? Will your heart thunder in passion? Will you sigh with compassion at a touching moment?
I try to bring all this to my writing. It, too, is an adventure for me. A character will pop into my mind at the oddest times; in the shower, in the grocery store, and quite often when I really should be doing something else! She speaks to me and I begin to see her in my mind, what she looks like, where she's from, what she was like as a girl. She's not a lttle girl now and she has a story to tell.
That's where the adventure begins because while I know where my character is going, I'm never quite sure how she'll get there. It's hard work slogging through life to get to happily ever after, but unlike many of my characters, I'm a romantic at heart and I believe...

All I can say right now is read this book! Seriously. Go get a copy. It can be read as a standalone but is better as part of the series, so take your pick. But seriously, go read it.
Ok, I must admit I’ve been (impatiently) waiting for this novel since the main character was introduced in the 2nd Guardians of the Race novel. Just when I though Rhoades couldn’t throw me for a loop, she definitely did. Even after having read the rest of this series and the synopsis for this book I still couldn’t have imagined how this was all going to play out. Rhoades’ phenomenal storytelling and overactive imagination combine to create a novel that you won’t be able to put down or to forget.
By using the same voice and descriptive methods as the previous stories in the Guardians of the Race series she ties them all together. The recurring characters are not only family to each other, but by this point in the series they are becoming family to the reader as well. The main characters in this novel might just be my favourite yet. Both characters have major challenges to overcome before they can fully accept not only their relationship but who they are. It is an amazing feat to see what they accomplish together.
My overall thoughts on this novel can be easily summed up: written by an adult for an adult audience, has a bit of everything, including romance, suspense, heat, laugher, you name it. Overall, well worth the time it takes to read it and then read again. This novel didn’t just meet my expectations it blew them right out of the water. Rhoades’ books just keep getting better and better. I definitely can’t wait to see what comes next.
Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.
