A full-length, standalone romance from the New York Times bestselling author of Archer’s Voice.

Kira Dallaire is desperate.

Some challenges in life seem too hard to overcome. With little money, and even fewer options, the quick-witted and vibrant twenty-two-year-old needs to reinvent herself. Known for her generous heart and impulsive personality, she devises a survival plan, possibly her most outrageous idea yet.

Grayson Hawthorn is losing hope.

Some obstacles in life seem too hard to overcome. Betrayal definitely being one of them. With limited capital, and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard, a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail. That is until a young woman enters his office with an outlandish, unexpected proposition impossible to refuse.

What begins as a temporary business arrangement, soon evolves into more as vivacious, spirited Kira challenges detached, arrogant Grayson to want more from life. To want more for himself. But as their wills clash and fiery passion ignites, they’ll realize that sometimes the past creates walls too difficult to climb, and that lies and deception rarely precede a happily every after.

As Kira and Grayson race toward their destiny, they will discover that some vows are meant to be broken, and others are worth risking everything for . . . even your very own heart.

THIS IS A STANDALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY LIBRA. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

REVIEW BY ALEXA

Every princess wants her prince charming come and save her. But what if the prince isn’t really charming and more likely a lonely, grumpy, and judgmental dragon? Well, at least she’s not 100% princess and the Dragon will soon know it.

Kira is a ‘wasted’ princess who may have a former politicians as her father and wealthy enough. But she grew up with a hollow heart in which money cannot replace all the little things that she missed. When she became desperate and must withdraw funds her grandmother, she had only one option. Ungrateful man who should be aware of its life depends on Kira’s hand.

Grayson is a solitary man and the sole beneficiary of an estate wine producer in Napa. He lives in a stunning mansion with actual size of a maze. The problem is he was broke and did not have anything to revive the glory of this family company. The easiest way out is only one, swallow his pride and accept the offer women who are guaranteed to be dragged out of the fort, and test all limits of his patience.

This my first read from Mia Sheridan. Although many friends already recommended this author, I want to read the book with ‘go blind’ and trust my own instincts. This book makes a great success for making me in tears and happy laugh at the same time. It looked like an ordinary story, but it offers a simple conflict mixed with creativity. We can guess the ending easily but is shown with a storytelling that will make us curious about the overall detail and twist on the way to the ending.

“Sometimes the pain is so great, it feels as if it carves out the very essence of who you are. But it doesn’t, not if you don’t allow it to. It carves out a place in you, yes, but love is meant to fill that space. If you let it, pain makes more space for love within you. And the love we carry inside makes us strong when nothing else can.”

The characters is more interesting from page to page, the intriguing conflict and endless twist like a minefield is success tying me until the end. Ms. Sheridan also provide a story with beautiful setting. The flow is fast with fairy tale sprinkles in some romantic scene. The interaction between Kira’s sarcastic and Grayson’s grumpy are very exciting to be follow. Their steamy scene is so sweet and arousing (I couldn’t eat grapes again without remembering that ‘naughty’ scene in the plantation, LOL). This new adult has strong emotional feeling and ‘poke my heart’ in the right places. Their chemistry build slowly from two different person who has been hurt. The story has double POV but it’s not over melancholic. No insta-love, no insta-lust and magical sex in this book, Thanks’ God!

Grayson’s Vow is not a paranormal story. This book gives many memorable inspirational messages without patronizing. A story about life balance. It’s about courage to open up and let others help heal emotional wounds. It’s about pay it forward, which it’s no matter how small actions we do to others will come back to us when we most need.
