Overview

Legendary rock singer Britt Jordan is at the pinnacle of his career-at least as far as the world knows. But Britt's voice is failing and a terrible event in his past haunts him every moment. He thinks that his life is a hopeless shipwreck...until the night he is stopped dead in his tracks by a woman's smile.
With the same determination that propelled him to stardom, he begins to create a new life with Dena and her daughter, Bonnie. Britt's presence in Dena's life brings more than paparazzi, however. His baggage includes a brother who wants to destroy him and a stalker intent on killing his wife. Willing to sacrifice any price to save his family, he finally must find a higher plane on which to face his past and his future.

About the Author

I believe the best stories aren't about perfect people. The best stories are about what happens when you back a flawed person into a corner. I like to squish a character until he pops and see what pours out.
Or more specifically, what pours back in.
I like to unravel a character until I get at the story he really wants to tell me. The story might leave us a little grimy in the telling, but we'll find out just what he'll risk everything for. We'll find out whether he's willing to let the story transform him.
Because I believe God's story is evident even in the grimiest of tales.
As for me, I'm as flawed as anyone. I can scruff along my daily walk not much different than the next person. And yet... and yet, by God's grace, I stand perfect. Amazing truth.
Perfectly flawed; that's me. Pretty much like my characters, when you get down to it.

Sheri grew up in Mt. Airy, NC, and lives thereabouts with her husband. Together they run a couple of small businesses and plan their next vacation. A graduate of High Point University, her first job was writer at a marketing firm, and she's been scribbling ever since.

Anytime I would tell someone I was writing a story about a rock star, I could see their eyes start to glaze over. Almost as if a cartoon balloon floated up, I could just about see them thinking, "Why?"
As if I had a choice! As soon as these two characters plopped down in my brain and took up housekeeping, they demanded that I tell their story.
There was Britt Jordan: quirky, restless, determined, forgetful, genius. Losing his voice and lugging a weight of guilt. Skeptical in matters of faith. It required a peculiar insanity on my part to house him inside my head.
And Dena: self-assured, calm, a mother, fearless, imaginative. Rooted in her faith; positive in her trust in Britt. Her melodious voice still lilts through my thoughts at times.

 Britt Jordan wasn't sure what was wrong or how to stop it. He did know he felt out of control. He felt lost and unsure.  Then he met Dena Martin.  Her smile stunned him.  Her laughter was music like he'd never heard before.  All Britt knew for sure after meeting Dena was that he never wanted to let her go.  Their biggest problems came from Britt's rock star lifestyle.  How would their lives meld? Neither was sure but they couldn't wait to begin that life together.       Romance. Tenderness. Devotion. Each of these words describe what happens in this book.  Ms Haymore did a superb job of writing this book.  The characters are wonderfully full and rich.  If you can only buy one book this month... Buy this one!! It will take you places you can only imagine and you'll believe in happy endings again.  Thank you Ms Haymore for giving us a book we can read again and again and never tire of. In the spirit of such books as Gone With the Wind and Sense and Sensibility, this book is timeless.       I found no issues in this one.      I gave this one 5 + cheers out of 5 cheers because I never dreamed such devotion existed any more.    ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~
