When Dr. Cain Turner’s life was literally blown apart in a small province of Afghanistan, it was only the hope and memories of one woman that propelled him forward. But there were more demons to face.
In the small country hamlet of Paradise, Tennessee…Faith waits. Surrounded by her loving sisters, Faith McKinnon had faced her own demons, having thought that the love of her life had deserted her.
But fate…and a few meddling McKinnon sisters…conspired to bring the two star-crossed lovers together again.
NOTE: Romantica — this is a romance with erotica in certain sections!!
Wow…just wow! I am fairly certain that my heart actually hurt, reading parts of this book. Cain is a man willing to die for his country, but not bring the love of his life into the shattered ruins of what he used to be. Thinking he has set her free, Cain lets Faith go, and breaks every reader’s heart in the process. After spending months as an Army doctor in Afghanistan, Cain believes he can never be what Faith needs or deserves. He makes a quick and “easy” break, giving no explanation or reason for his change of heart.
Not knowing why Cain has left her heart broken beyond repair, Faith has finally decided to move on, only to find that she isn’t quite sure how. She has everything planned out for how the rest of her life was supposed to be, she doesn’t want her sisters to see what a wreck she really is, but really it’s not very hard to see the anguish Faith feels.
I loved this book and it’s characters. I hope Sarah O’Rourke plans to continue this story, sharing the stories that follow Faith’s sisters and the other characters we have met in this book. I loved this book!
“You like that don’t you, baby?” he asked huskily between wet kisses while he twisted her other nipple between two fingers. “You like me playing with these gorgeous little raspberries you have.”
“God, yes,” Faith gasped, wrenching her lips away from his as she moaned. “Harder, Cain,” she begged.
Pinching and releasing the tempting little buds he held, he kissed a slow tender trail down her creamy neck, pausing only long enough to lick her throbbing pulse before moving on to one lush, perfectly formed breast. “So pretty,” he murmured before pulling her nipple between his lips and raking his teeth against the sensitive skin.
“Yes!” Faith breathed, cupping her palm against his shaved head as he ate at her breast. “That feels so good,” she panted, wriggling in front of him in a bit to get closer.
“Yeah?” Cain mumbled around her nipple before kissing a path across her chest to the other breast. Swirling his tongue around the taut peak, he smiled. “Finger your clit, baby,” he ordered in a low voice. “Get that pussy ready for my tongue,” he growled, sucking her nipple sharply before using his teeth to gently bite the engorged flesh.
Drawing back enough to watch Faith slowly slide her hand down her midriff, he licked his lips when two of her fingers spread her labia and stroked the pink pearl peeking from beneath its hood. “Oh, now that’s beautiful, darlin’,” he praised as she shivered in his arms. He could see the light touch of her fingers ratcheting up her desire, her juices coating the slender fingers she used to pleasure herself. “That’s it,” he encouraged softly, mesmerized by the sight of those delicate digits stroking over that cluster of nerves at the apex of her sex. “That’s how I want you to touch yourself while I’m gone, and every time you do, I want you to imagine me between those milky thighs. Think about how good my tongue feels when I’m licking you nice and slow.”
