He only wants to be forgiven for the hideous things he did.
It’s taken him a long time, but Vic Walters finally has the life he always wanted. His beautiful wife, Laura, was the answer to his dreams, and he’s totally smitten with the kids he never thought he’d have. He has money, a home, cars, clothes, and his family. Love and laughter should fill his days, but horror haunts Vic, and all he can think about are the three women he never meant to hurt. And hurt them he did—physically. He knows it wasn’t his fault. He understands why and how it happened. That, however, does nothing to assuage his guilt. He doesn’t need a miracle. He needs atonement. And there’s only one way to get it.
In the kickoff to the Legacy series, the second spinoff of the Love Under Construction series and following the Citadel series, Atonement is as poignant as a Nicholas Sparks novel with all the makings of true romance with a little humor thrown in. You’ll visit the Walters clan again, and then head straight into uncharted territory as Vic makes three pilgrimages that will change his life forever.
Buy this “sweet with heat” romance from the heart today and meet the biggest, baddest teddy bear of an Italian east of the Mississippi!

Favorite Quotes: I love my little girl. She thinks I’m the greatest thing since Elmo. His little girl loved him. So did his wife. All he wanted to do was love them and Christopher and keep them safe – from bad people, from bad food, from bad dogs and bad weather and bad drugs and things that would break their hearts. He knew he couldn’t do all of that, but he was certainly going to give it his best shot. My Review: I adore Vic, he is one of my favorite Italian men; but his personal history and issues of unresolved guilt were sad and disturbing and continued to haunt him despite his present happiness and stability. After a bit of dithering and upsetting his sweet wife, he decides to tackle his issues head-on and tracked down his old girlfriends to do so – with his wife’s blessing – say what? The story was a quick read with erotic sensual scenes, sweet and tender family scenes, heart squeezes, and an update on the ongoing family dramas of this lively and large Italian family.
This is so true to what I've loved about this "family" since I've read my first book. Although this is a start of a new spin off series its just as good as the series faithful readers of this author's books have come to love. While this may have some hard moments for some and may require tissues its an awesome story and one that is not to be missed.
Sometimes in life there are thing that we can’t let go of. The guilt of how we treated someone or a situation can eat away at you. For Vic it was all of that and more. Abuse is a horrid thing and the repercussions and long term impact can be devastating. With a strong and loving woman at his side he will be able to put those demons to rest and possibly find his peace, his rest, his atonement. A beautiful story of forgiveness well written, passionate and emotional. The love and support of family love is what draws you in. And the ending rounds it all nicely and answers any lingering questions. Awesome read.
