Title: Hope’s Dream (Deerbourne Inn # 2)

 

Author: Peggy Jaeger

 

Genre: Sweet Romance, Novella

 

Book Blurb:

Hope Kildaire gave up her dream of becoming a nurse practitioner when a car accident killed her father and left her mother an invalid. Working two jobs and caring for her mother leaves the twenty-seven-year-old with no time for fun or relationships. When a law firm representing her paternal grandparents sends her several letters, Hope ignores them. She despises the family who disowned her father and wants nothing to do with them.

 

Lawyer Tyler Coleman's job is simply to obtain Hope's signature on a legal document. Getting it is harder than planned, though, when an unexpected attraction blossoms between them. If Ty is honest with Hope about why he's in Willow Springs, he'll fulfill his assignment but may risk hurting her.

 

The opportunity to have everything she's ever desired is at Hope's fingertips. Will her dream come true at the expense of Tyler's love?

 

Excerpt:

Hope stood behind the bar, filling two glasses with draft beer. She hadn’t spotted him approach, so he took the moment to observe her unawares.

 

A reserved smile graced her face as the guy waiting for his order chatted her up. Early twenties by Tyler’s guess, the kid stared at Hope with a serious case of attraction. He knew how the younger man felt.

 

During their lesson her hair had been woven into a braid. In the lodge, when she’d removed her hat, he’d likened the colors to butterscotch and honey. Now with it unbraided and freely floating down past her shoulders, the colors burst into life. Gold and red highlights shimmered from the waves framing her face, as if each strand had been hand painted for emphasis. In the tavern’s subdued lighting, Hope was a bright, vibrant beacon, sparkling with health and life.

 

Tyler was drawn to her light, her vitality, as if he’d spent his existence until that moment in perpetual darkness.

 

Hope turned, reached for something behind her, and caught his eye.

 

For a moment her body froze, her hand still outstretched, her eyes widening in surprise when they lit on him. She dipped her chin and regarded him from under her eyelashes as she finger-swiped the hair falling across her face behind her ear. A quick head bob his way indicated she’d be right with him.

 

With an expert’s finesse she uncorked a bottle of Jameson’s, poured a thimbleful each into two shot glasses, then added them to beer-guy’s order. He slid a bill into her hand and then waved off the change she tried to give him back. He scooped the drinks, then carried them back to his table. Hope slid the change into one of the jelly jars behind the bar marked with several names, hers among them, and made her way over to him.

 

“Hey, New York.” Sweet laughter warmed with surprise rang in her voice. “How are the legs?”

 

Tyler groaned and stretched them out in front of him. “Better after a long, hot soak, but I’m betting they’re gonna feel worse in the morning.”

 

She tossed him a quick, sympathetic look. “Make sure you take some kind of analgesic before going to sleep tonight. It’ll help. Trust me.”

 

“Will do.”

 

“What can I get you?”

 

He spurted off the name of one of the draft beers.

 

She pulled it and then brought it back to him. “Anything to eat? I know the inn doesn’t serve dinner.”

 

He glanced up at the selection board again and asked, “What do you recommend?”

 

“The soup’s hot and fabulous. Comes with a salad or fresh bread. The burgers here are always great, but I’m biased.” Her open smile charmed him.

 

“Sold.”

 

“So,” he said after she came back from placing his order, “you’re a woman of many talents. Ski instructor. Bartender.”

 

The brighter colors in her hair glistened when she shook her head. “We in the business prefer the term mixologist.”

November is a time to be thankful. What are you most thankful for this year?

 

As 2019 closes, I find I am thankful that I have my mother still with me. The past two years have been a trying time for her, physically and mentally, and to know she is still able to live in her own home, and for the most part take care of her life ( with a wee bit of help in the cooking department from me!) is a true blessing.

 

Why is your featured book worth snuggling up to?

 

If you like sweet romances with a rags-to-riches trope and a hero who doesn’t blink an eye at changing everything in his life for the woman he loves, HOPE’S DREAM is a book wroth snuggling up next to a roaring fire with.

Author Biography:

Peggy Jaeger writes contemporary romances about strong women, the families who support them, and the men who can’t live without them.

Family and food play huge roles in Peggy’s stories because she believes there is nothing that holds a family structure together like sharing a meal…or two…or ten. Dotted with humor and characters that are as real as they are loving, Peggy brings all aspects of life into her stories: life, death, sibling rivalry, illness, and the desire for everyone to find their own happily ever after. Growing up the only child of divorced parents she longed for sisters, brothers and a family that vowed to stick together no matter what came their way. Through her books, she has created the families she wanted as that lonely child.
