(Formerly titled The Friar)

Adam Westfield is an ex-friar just released from prison. Unsure of his destiny, he roams America, hoping to find a purpose . . . and forgiveness.

A widowed mother of two, Sage Hammond is struggling to keep her horse ranch afloat. Unable to find a ranch hand willing to work for meager wages, she's close to giving up. Then, an answer to her prayers appears--a quiet, handsome stranger.

Adam is falling in love for the first time in his life, however, strange things begin to happen at the ranch--things that are putting Sage and her children in danger--and he finds he's willing to sell his soul to protect them. But will it be enough?

A man trying to overcome his past. A woman trying to secure her children's future. Can they both learn to live in the present and discover that second chances do exist?

***The Road to Solace is a standalone novel and not related to any of Samantha A. Cole's current series.

About the Author

USA Today Bestselling Author and Award-Winning Author Samantha A. Cole is a retired police officer and paramedic. She's lived her entire life in the suburbs of New York City and is looking forward to becoming a snow-bird between New York and Florida someday. Her two fur-babies, Jinx and Bella, keep her company and remind their mom to take a break from writing every once in a while to go for a walk, which is the best way to deal with a stubborn case of writer’s block.

An avid reader since childhood, Samantha was often found with a book in hand and sometimes one in each. After being gifted with a stack of romance novels from her grandmother, her love affair with the genre began in her teens. Many years later, she discovered her love for writing stories was just as strong. Taking her life experiences and training, she strives to find the perfect mix of suspense and romance for her readers to enjoy.

Her standalone novel, The Friar, since retitled as The Road to Solace, won the silver medal in the 2017 Readers' Favorite Awards in the Contemporary Romance genre out of more than 1000 entries.

While the original planned stories for the Trident Security series have been completed, they have brought many opportunities for Samantha to spread her wings and bring her readers more characters and stories to love. Look for her new Hazard Falls series, Trident Security Omega Team series, Doms of The Covenant series, Blackhawk Security series, and more from the Malone Brothers series, in addition to several standalone projects.

This is a standalone novel and well worth the read. The main characters are both hurt souls who are coping with life the best they can. Adam (main male character) meets Sage (the main female character), when she needs help Adam steps up to the plate! There is mystery, intrigue and romance in this wonderfully written book. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Even before I do a review of this book I will Recommend it. This is a new Author to me and I was not stopping reading for anything!!! A beautiful well written story that held my interest throughout. There is a villain, suspense, drama, danger, arson, assault, kidnapping, and attempted murder, a cave-in, and romance. This is Adam Westfield an ex-friar who has been just released from prison, a widowed mother of two, Sage Hammond and her children Jenna and Matthew. The story flows smoothly from one page to the other. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A very different storyline for Samantha, but thats what I enjoyed best. It's a sweet, but steamy read. Sometimes it's nice to have the tender, innocent love stories in between the hot, extra storieys. I hope Samantha writes more stories like Adam and Sage's.

Samantha A. Cole is best known for her Trident Security series and her Malone Brothers books. While the Trident series and Malone Brothers are BDSM and Domination, The Friar is a standalone book with less emphasis on sex, but still the amazing storytelling that Ms Cole is so well known for. Adam is sent to prison for manslaughter, a former Franciscan brother, he spends time drifting until he comes upon the widow Sage Hammond. He is told she needs help with her ranch, but when she finds out he’s an ex-con, his prospects don’t look so good. But a neighboring rancher shows up with his lackey and threaten Sage into selling her ranch. Adam intervenes. Sage decides to keep him on, and he’s worth his weight in gold to Sage and her 2 children. Events begin happening at the ranch, and it’s up to Adam to keep her safe, but who from? Ms. Cole has written another 5 star mega-hit that will keep you riveted from the very first page all of the way to the very end.

The Friar by Samantha A. Cole This is Adam Westfield and Sage Hammond's story. Man, this is a very different story. Adam is a man that just got out of prison. Once you discover the man he really is you will admire him. Sage is widowed and is still struggling with losing her husband and keeping their horse breeding business going. Adam ends up working for Sage. They are attracted to one another. Sage is stealing grieving over losing her husband and Adam feels that he is not good enough for Sage. Also, some strange things start happening plus the stress of maybe losing her home and business. Will Adam and Sage take the chance on love? This is an extremely emotional read. Adam and Sage have so many obstacles to overcome but the author keeps you drawn into the story. You can't help but fall in love with the characters. A wonderful heartfelt and sensual romance with lots of twists. A must read! FYI, includes mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
