Leaving Chicago to
escape, if for only a little while, a past that consisted of
a cheating ex-husband and poor judgment, Nickie Grace moved
She threw herself into rehabbing an old house belonging to
her aunt, but no sooner does she arrive, she finds herself
victimized by vandals and prowlers, something she never
expected in the small town of Parkersburg.
Meeting Deputy Hank Crossman, when he answered her
distress call to the police, and her reaction to him is
something else she also never expected.
love and family are things Deputy Hank Crossman has very
little knowledge of, and they are things he feels heís
incapable of ever processing.
He knows about wanting and lusting, and he definitely
wanted and lusted for Nickie but anything beyond that he
feels is out of reach for them.
As he gets closer to Nickie, Hank wrestled with his
feelings and the scars from his childhood as he tries to
make sense of the emotions Nickie brings out of him. Those
emotions increased as it became evident Nickieís life may be
in danger. (tenses flip back and forth).
Home To Stay is a fantastic
romance and a great mystery.
Hank and Nickie are the main characters of the story
but the supporting characters have just as much depth and
are equally interesting, making this book such a great read.
Nickie is a strong and independent woman whoís been
badly burned by her ex-husband, and although she hates to
admit it, he stole her self-confidence.
Hank is your typically scarred hero who shuns love
and looks for physical gratification only.
Heís a bit arrogant and 100% man.
Heís the type of overbearing man I normally donít
like in contemporary novels, but Jane Leopold Quinn did an
excellent job in allowing her readers to see Hankís
vulnerability without it being seen as weakness, that even
with his cocky manner I still loved him.
Home To Stay
is an intriguing mystery romance story thatís sweet,
humorous, and sizzling hot, I Joyfully Recommend
Home To Stay.
