A full-length, standalone romance from the New York Times bestselling author of Archer's Voice.
Kira Dallaire is desperate.
Some challenges in life seem too hard to overcome. With little money, and even fewer options, the quick-witted and vibrant twenty-two-year-old needs to reinvent herself. Known for her generous heart and impulsive personality, she devises a survival plan, possibly her most outrageous idea yet.
Grayson Hawthorn is losing hope.
Some obstacles in life seem too hard to overcome. Betrayal definitely being one of them. With limited capital, and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard, a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail. That is until a young woman enters his office with an outlandish, unexpected proposition impossible to refuse.
What begins as a temporary business arrangement, soon evolves into more as vivacious, spirited Kira challenges detached, arrogant Grayson to want more from life. To want more for himself. But as their wills clash and fiery passion ignites, they'll realize that sometimes the past creates walls too difficult to climb, and that lies and deception rarely precede a happily every after.
As Kira and Grayson race toward their destiny, they will discover that some vows are meant to be broken, and others are worth risking everything for . . . even your very own heart.
THIS IS A STANDALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY LIBRA. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
❝forget the prince and princess. I always imagined the real story was between the witch and the dragon.❞
Once again Mia Sheridan stole my heart. She grabbed it in the beginning as Kira sat in her car and watched Grayson leaning on the wall grappling with the pain he was feeling, and she cradled it as he took his oh so precious cash and gave it to a homeless man. She kept it and I thought was going to break it, as she showed me the life Grayson lived with his father and step-mother, and again with the way his mother treated him. And when she made me feel Kira’s pain, I knew for sure she wasn’t going to give it back to me in one piece.
But never fear, Ms. Sheridan always knows how to put the pieces back together again. She always does. For me she does it by providing lessons about life. Never by shoving them down your throat. And once again she did this beautifully. I absolutely LOVED Grayson’s Vow. I loved the witch and dragon theme she took. I felt like I was reading a cinderella story…a modern day fairy tale. The lessons I learned (or remembered), are ones I know I need a reminder of on a daily basis ~ you can only be strong once you are brave enough to break, and that pain makes more room for love within.
❝He looked like every hero in every fairy tale I’d ever dreamed, come to life. And, God, I wanted to believe in heroes again.❞
I have been primed and ready for this story for months because I have been
stalking following Ms. Sheridan on Spotify. Each new song she added to this playlist increased my excitement for the book. And when I saw she named the playlist, Grayson’s Vow I immediately spread the news. Okay, so I am admittedly a huge fan, so what? (I listed Mia Sheridan as one of the Authors I’m Crushin’ On) This soundtrack is FANTASTIC. And was the perfect accompaniment to my reading experience, even though I think I already knew each song by heart before I read the book. (The Spotify link is below.) But that’s what this author does, her writing is an experience. It isn’t just about the words on the page, she makes you EXPERIENCE them. You hear them through song, you feel them through the characters, you think about them through her words of wisdom.
❝love is not always smooth and easy. Love can be piercing. Love means exposing yourself-all of yourself, every tender part-to being hurt. Because true love is not only the flower, true love is also the thorns.❞
Simply beautiful, Grayson’s Vow will steal your heart, make you think, and make you feel!
