Overview

When Lexi Taylor resorts to hosting an online auction to raise money for her fledgling youth center, the last thing she expects is to be matched for a date with Cooper Jackson. Lured by the promise of a lucrative NFL career, the hometown hero and former University of Tennessee quarterback broke off their engagement without so much as a backward glance. Now, six years later, he’s come home to nurse an injured knee and his wounded pride—and he wants Lexi back.
But a heartbreaking secret stands between them, and Lexi plans to keep it that way.


Can Cooper's gentleness and renewed faith coax the secret to the surface? And if he does, will forgiveness draw them close…or will their love be shattered forever?

Editorial Reviews

Susan Mobley
(4 1/2 stars!) Here’s a wonderful story about the temptations fame can bring. The lessons both characters learn are appropriate and the secondary characters add depth to this touching story of learning from your mistakes and taking the opportunity offered by second chances.

    Tender Mercies is a tender, touching tale. I'm not a huge fan of football, but Cooper Jackson has definitly upped my interest in the sport. Who would have thought romance and football could make a perfect pair? Mary Manners does a fine job of weaving the two together.
