Overview

Sarah-Jane Quinn has many secret dreams: to own the bed-and-breakfast inn where she stayed as a child; to finally capture the elusive Coleridge “Collie” Tate, on whom she has an enormous crush; and most importantly, to be someone’s top priority for once in her life.

But Collie is a single father with a potential custody battle on his hands, and Sarah ranks roughly Number 917 on his list of concerns. So when Gus Haldemann, the sophisticated director of Human Resources, shows a marked interest in her, she finds it not only flattering (and mystifying), but decidedly tempting and irresistible.

And then Sarah is brutally attacked by a violent stalker. In the aftermath, she must re-evaluate her priorities and decide which man reaches deepest into her heart – and let the other go forever.

Meet the Author

Sharon Gerlach was in training to be a ninja, but a dismaying lack of physical grace and balance—not to mention the inability to keep her big mouth shut—ended her ninja career before it had really begun. Now she writes. She doesn’t write about ninjas because that’s obviously a sore subject. But she writes about other really cool things and figures someone else will cover the ninjas. Life’s really not all about ninjas, anyway. Sharon lives on the dry side of the Pacific Northwest with her husband (who must really be fond of her as he hasn’t left her yet despite her ninja failings); two of her three kids (none of whom possess ninja qualities either); and a Border collie who suffers the presence of seven cats. Yes, you guessed it—ninja cats!Subscribe at RunningInkPress.com to be notified of more releases by this author.

    AMAZING! This book does NOT disappoint.

    It was free... so I went into it expecting a little weirdness that usually comes from the "free" Nook Books. But let me tell you it was amazing. You truely get to know Sara-Jane she is a person you can relate to and actually understand how she is feeling. This is one of my favorite books it gave me goosbumps on SEVERAL occasions... I will read it again and again. I didnt want to put it down! Definitely read this book!

    Could not put this book down!!!

    I absolutely loved this story! The love triangle of Sarah, Collie, and Gus (I won't count the creepy stalker though) is so packed full of emotion that you can't find a good place to pause your reading. All of Sarah's pain in her life is magically erased in the end with the realization of who her husband really is and why he loves her so much. Such a sweet and touching story that you wish there was even more than the 695 pages. A must read!

    Awesome love story!

    I loved the story behind this, of finding the ultimate one. When i thought she has lost him right after realizing he was the one i had the read frantically to satisfy that he wasnt gone. Loved this so much, would like a novella to see how many children they end up with.

    The secret dreams of Sarah-Jane Quin: Sharon Gerlock

    This story really shouts out: If someone sexually harasses you at work or out in the world, you need to report it ASAP!!!

    This story is a typical office romance with all the bells and whistles that go along with it. There are a lot emotional reactions to this story and some great TECH tips. There is even some laughs and some danger involved.

    This book sneaks up on you. I had to read it again and again. The end is so sweet. I think it got under my skin and I was a little upset with one character and then it might be like the title, that everyone has secrets. There are a couple editing problems but the story is so good. Sarah is so likeable and she ends up with the sweetest guy, won't tell you which. I want to find cinnamon toothpaste now.

    This is a well written book. Wow!

    This book contains love triangles which is ironic in the end. The complexity of the character are amazing. I was so shocked to discover the childhood secret between sarah and a suiter(wewe huhuh, oh this is suppose to be a french imitation by the way;) the mystery surronding the office is exquistly nerve racking. Contains different problems from the everday introverted monologe ( you know,the usual) to creepy stalker out to get you kind of situation. Annd BONUS!!!!!a sweet but sometimes cocky boss who is very has a huge family i mean HUGE and has a sexy german side. Oh and by the way the ending is such a tease because it made me break out into tears ( yes a girl who cries over books)not goinng to say what kind but i did. But i do believe that anyone who comes across this book and sees the love triangle problem and thinks "wow not another one" just try it before u judge and become amazed ad enthralled by this book. I COMMAMD IT? HEHE JK HOPE U ENJOY!!! OH AND IS THERE A SEQUEL JUST WONDERING?

    I really enjoyed this

    I really like this author. The characters seem so real. I usually have to pay for books i like that much! I am only sad that i didnt realize this is not the first book with these characters, i would have read the other first. I will for sure read any she has written.

    A very entertaining read

    I loved this book. It's a light read filled with humor and romance. A few twists and turns that I wasn't expecting and an ending that wrapped everything up the way it should be.
    Loved it!

    Wonderful

    Wonderful story and characters. This book caused me to laugh at some points, cry at others, and truly enjoy Sarah's story. Her childhood was so unpleasant to say the least which led to her seeing herself as less than she was. Hate when the storyline is given away, but she comes to an awesome realization of who she is and eho the men in her life really are.
    Take the time to read this book, you will really consider it time well spent.
