When everything you've longed for is standing right in front of you, would you find the courage to chase it when you've given up on dreams?
Fox shifter Alison Smith gave up on happy endings when her ex-husband walked out, but that didn't mean she was allowed to give up on happiness. With four growing kids, Allie is determined to look on the bright side and carry on, even when life seems to keep kicking the girl who's fallen down.
Four kids, two jobs, and a pile of debt left over from her ex seem overwhelming most days. Luckily, Allie has the best friends a girl could ask for. Especially a certain quiet bear who's always been her rock.
Patient. Oliver Campbell knows what it means to be patient. But twenty years of wanting one unavailable woman may have pushed him to the edge. With Allie working every night at his bar, their friendship has begun to fracture.
Then old ghosts offer one more kick to the little family that's already down, and patience is a virtue Ollie can no longer afford. Allie's ex-husband may be gone, but his actions are haunting his family. With danger licking the borders of Cambio Springs, the bear and the fox will have to work together. And twenty years of unspoken truths may finally come to light.
WAKING HEARTS is the third paranormal romance novel in the Cambio Springs Mysteries series.
Ollie has loved Allie forever but has never been able to tell her. In high school it was because he waited too long and Joe Russell came in and swept her off her feet. Now that Joe is out of the picture Ollie feels it isn’t the right time to come clean about his feelings. Allie has 4 kids, 2-part time jobs and a mountain of debt left by her dead beat ex-husband. Every night she is with Ollie her feelings for him grow but she knows that he doesn’t see her in the same light.
I can’t say that I have a favorite author because I have a lot of favorite authors and there is no way I could say I loved one more than the other! I can say that Elizabeth Hunter is one of them. I really enjoy all of her series and I can’t say that about all my favorite author’s. Well written and articulate Hunter paints such a vivid picture in her stories that I feel as if I am a part of them.
