Description

New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak welcomes readers to the town of Silver Springs, where surprises wait around every corner!

The search for her birth mother brought Cora Kelly to the New Horizons Boys Ranch. Getting a job there was easy enough, but confiding in Aiyana, the ranch's owner, that she's really her daughter? Cora's not sure she can do that, not unless she's confident the news will be welcomed. And once she gets to know Elijah Turner—Aiyana's adopted son and ranch manager—that decision becomes even more difficult.

Although Elijah can't deny his deep attraction to Cora, he's always struggled with trust. Anyone with his past would, and there's something about the ranch's newest employee that isn't exactly as it seems. But if the feelings she awakes in his guarded heart are any indication, she might be just what he's long been waiting for.

        March 13, 2017
        When art teacher Cora Kelly accepts a job at New Horizons Boys Ranch (a boarding school for troubled boys) in Silver Springs, Calif., her secret goal is to find the ranch’s owner—who happens to be her birth mother, Aiyana Turner—and any other relatives who might be there. She doesn’t expect one of those possible relatives to be a hot “brother” she’s intensely attracted to. Former New Horizons student Elijah Turner was adopted by Aiyana when he was a teen and is now a ranch employee. Having failed at many relationships because of his “inability to make feel loved and ‘validated,’ ” Elijah isn’t looking for anything permanent; and since Cora is keeping her identity a secret (and he’s her boss), she isn’t either. But they embark on some no-strings-attached steamy encounters that are eventually followed up by more emotionally intimate pillow talk. Elijah is drawn to Cora’s relaxed demeanor and her willingness to accept what he offers without pushing for more, giving him a chance to open up about his past at his own pace. There’s nothing predictable about this sweet love story, and Novak’s believable yet easy resolutions make it a delightful, touching introduction to the Silver Springs series.

        April 15, 2017

        Cora Kelly adores her adoptive parents, but for the past six years she has been secretly searching for her birth mother and now has finally located her--Aiyana Turner, the owner of the New Horizons Boys Ranch, a private boarding school for troubled teens. Keeping the relationship a secret, Cora accepts a job as the school's new art teacher, but when she falls for Elijah Turner, the ranch manager and eldest of Aiyana's eight adopted sons, she realizes she's going to have to tell him--and Aiyana--the truth. Child abuse and long-kept secrets are at the core of this intense, heartfelt story that makes real the fictional Silver Springs. VERDICT This brief romance nicely kicks off Novak's "Silver Springs" series. (No One but You and Until You Loved Me will be published by Mira: Harlequin in June and August, respectively.) Novak (The Secrets She Kept) lives in the Sacramento, CA, area.
