It was supposed to be simple.
With graduation around the corner, all Stormy had to do was lay low for a while, save up some cash, and then drive off into the sunset, leaving her bitter, alcoholic mother behind.
But life doesn’t always work out according to plan.
A gruesome family secret knocks Stormy’s life into a tailspin, leaving her devastated and without a place to go. Being new in town and completely out of options, Stormy takes a risk by showing up on the doorstep of Brylan Knight. Having helped her out of a jam once before, Brylan opens his home to her, providing the warmth and compassion she desperately needs.
The chemistry between Stormy and Brylan is undeniable, but anything beyond friendship is fraught with peril. Taking their relationship any further would jeopardize Brylan’s reputation, as well as his brand new career, and it’s a line that neither of them is willing to cross.
As the mayhem in Stormy’s life accumulates, she finds herself drowning in an ocean of heartbreak, and none of her former plans seem to matter anymore.
Her new goal...keeping her head above water.

About the Author
Auburn J. Kelly lives in a tiny rural town in Texas with her husband, two teenage sons, and a neurotic cat. When she’s not sketching or painting, you might find her browsing antiques in some quaint little shop. However, nine times out of ten, she’s likely to be nestled in a corner somewhere with her nose in a book. As a writer of romantic fiction, Auburn draws inspiration from the world around her. She is fascinated by the complexity of human emotion and its impact on behavior. Writing has turned out to be the perfect outlet for that interest, as well as providing another channel for her creativity. She is the author of the novella, Alternate Route (available on Amazon), and will soon be releasing Finding Grace, Part two of the Weathering Stormy Series.
