Sharing a new release by Alexa Padgett…and, she has a great giveaway!! She’s giving away 5 free ebook copies of From the First…
I’m a news junkie, so when I read a sweet story about frat boys writing messages in their windows back to a young girl who was hospitalized for a chronic illness, I knew I wanted to share that story somehow.
Kai was the logical choice. From the previous book in the series, Many Sounds of Silence, we knew Kai had issues. And what better way to work through those challenges than through sacrificial love? I have to admit, I’m a sucker for sensitive men, and Kai’s sensitivity gets him in to all kinds of trouble.
I’ve wanted to write about a female scientist–I have a daughter who’s fascinated by science and engineering, and I wanted to do my part to normalize women in such roles for her–and here was my chance. Granted, Evie’s childhood is more traumatic than my daughter’s, but that suffering makes Evie more empathetic, more nuanced (and with a history I’d never want for my child–ever!).
The question was, how to get these two adults into the hospital to meet the little girl? And, then, once they met, how could they not need each other and deserve their own HEA?
About the book…
The car that slammed into Evangeline Mercer knocked her life apart. Her body will recover, but when she looks at the orphaned girl from the other car, she’s lost in memories of her own awful time in the foster system. Evie won’t let little Paige go through that nightmare, and she finds an unlikely ally in Kai Luchia, Paige’s newest friend and champion…
At 22, Kai is the lead singer in a chart-climbing band. He’s got frontman good looks and cash to burn. But fame and fortune don’t quiet the demons of his past. Or maybe it’s just that shy, sultry Evie has given him something better to desire…
When Paige’s case comes to a crisis, Kai and Evie have one reckless shot to take her future into their hands: get married, and fast. They’ll keep her safe. They’ll sate the lust that taunts them. And they’ll have each other, without any messy feelings to sort out. Unless racing away from the truth just leads to a bigger crash…
Only 99 cents!!
