Blurb:
Forever is a heartbeat away . . .

Kerris Moreton knows how to make things work. Bounced from foster home to foster home as a kid, she adapted; when opportunity arose, she thrived. Now, about to open her own business and accept a marriage proposal, Kerris is ready to build the life she's always wanted. The only thing missing? A passionate connection with her would-be fiancé, Cam. Kerris wants to believe that sparks are overrated-until Walsh Bennett lights her up like the Fourth of July.

. . . but what about love?

As one of the East Coast's most eligible bachelors, Walsh enjoys financial independence, fulfilling work with his family's nonprofit, and plenty of female attention. But lately he's been distracted by the one woman he can't have. Lovely to look at and even sweeter to know, Kerris is the soul mate Walsh never thought he would find. The problem is, his best friend found her first . . .

Excerpt:




The smell of vanilla lured Walsh from the warm cocoon of much-needed sleep. That perfectly sweet scent shimmied up his nostrils and brought him around. He rolled over without opening his eyes, surprised to encounter something soft and warm. His eyes popped open, widening at the sight of Kerris, asleep on his blanket.
She’d pulled her knees up to her chest, and her small hands curled under her cheek. He studied the woman, wishing she wasn’t as spectacular as he’d remembered. He knew he should let her sleep. She’d been flagging even in the elevator this morning, leaning up against the wall dozing. But he couldn’t resist.
“Kerris.”
She blinked drowsily a few times before jumping when her eyes set on him, leaning over her.
“Walsh,” she said, eyes still languid. “Hope you don’t mind me plopping down here to wait for everybody to get back. I wasn’t sure where they’d gone, and I was so tired.”
“It’s fine. You were obviously as done as I was. How’d it go?”
“Go?” She blinked, sitting up and taking the elastic bands from the ponytails at her nape. Running her fingers through the heavy fall of hair, she let out a relieved breath. “Sorry. Those were tight. How’d what go?”
Walsh watched the thick hair tumbling over Kerris’s shoulders and down her back, forgetting that she’d asked a question. Her eyes slid away as she licked at that plump, raspberry-colored bottom lip, clearing her throat and squeezing her lips against her teeth. It finally sank in for Walsh that his extended silence was making her uncomfortable.
Idiot!
“Sorry. Um, how’d your appointment go?” Maybe his casual tone would distract her from the fact that he’d practically gobbled her up with one look. “Weren’t you considering some space for your thrift store?”
Enthusiasm for the venture lit her up. She talked about the property, sketching pictures in the air with her hands, bringing the retail space to life with her slim fingers.
Cam’s girl.
She stretched her pretty mouth into a wide smile, laughing through her description of the Realtor, who’d been late and eccentric.
Cam’s girl.
She bit the corner of her lip, pleating her brows with her calculations of what it would take to whip the space into shape.
Cam’s girl.
The reminder beat a guilty rhythm in his head, but he couldn’t stop watching, couldn’t stop wishing, couldn’t stop wanting to know everything about her…for himself. Not for Cam.









Author Bio:
Kennedy Ryan grew up in North Carolina, but loves living in Atlanta with her husband (tall – check, dark – check – handsome – check), and her handful of a son. Though she knew, like writers often do, that she was supposed to tell stories, the road to fulfillment has been paved with “some of everything” jobs that kept her family eating and living indoors. With her degree in Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Tar Heels!), she has focused on writing for non-profit organizations and even doing some non-fiction ghost writing. Only in the last few years did she start telling stories again.

In addition to being a devoted wife and mom, she’s also a passionate advocate for families living with Autism. Her son was diagnosed at the age of two, and she has made it her mission to help as many families as possible find the resources and services they need. 25% of her royalties will go toward her national charitable partnerTalk About Curing Autism and Myles-A-Part, her foundation serving Georgia families.
