would your world change?
That’s exactly what happened to Madeleine Becker when her parents
died when she was ten years old. Ripped from her home and everything
that she has ever loved, she is forced to start all over again. The
only way for her to move on is to build walls around her heart and keep
everyone at a safe distance. Her logic: she can’t get hurt if she
doesn’t fall in love.
That theory is blown to pieces when she meets Reid Connely during
her freshman year at college. He is gorgeous and darkly mysterious. He
understands Maddy’s pain all too well, but sharing his pain would mean
breaking down the walls he put up around his own heart. Conflicted
between loving Maddy and hiding his dark past, Reid starts to reevaluate
his world. Maddy’s inner strength, snarky personality and breath
taking beauty help Reid to make peace with his past.
Together they find out what happens when they Let Love In.

your fears? What happens when your past rears its ugly head and
threatens your future?

face their fears and beat down their pasts in order to find their way

For Lucy Crane, the answer is simple: her daughter. When her husband
is killed in a tragic accident, Lucy loses her desire to live, but only
one thing keeps her going – her unborn daughter. Focusing on being a
mother helps Lucy cope with her loss, but kids grow up and they leave
home, eventually. Eighteen years after losing her first and only love,
Lucy is faced with the opportunity to find the happiness for which she’s
always longed. Her own fears become her worst enemies as she learns how
to embrace love once again.

the FDNY because of lung damage caused by 9/11, Evan moves to upstate
New York where he hopes to find a little peace and quiet. Old habits die
hard, and Evan’s hero complex and survivor’s guilt constantly remind
him of how difficult it is to be vulnerable. But for the first time in
his life, he’s tired of being alone.
Drawing strength from one another, Lucy and Evan discover how beautiful it is to let love be a part of their lives.
