Back Home at Firefly Lake

By Jen Gilroy

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

In the tradition of New York Times bestselling authors Susan Wiggs and RaeAnne Thayne comes an emotional story about finding love in the most unexpected of places, the third in a new series by Jen Gilroy.

Single mom and geologist Dr. Catherine McGuire shook off her small-town past as easily as she breezed through her advanced degrees. And when a research project, one that could bring her the promotion-and professional recognition-she craves, brings Cat back to Firefly Lake, she doesn't plan on putting down roots.

Scott O'Brien is the local hero, the hockey star who went on to NHL success. His wife's death and a career-ending injury brought him back to Firefly Lake, where he's coaching hockey and trying to rebuild his life without the family he'd counted on.

Cat couldn't care less about Scott and the glory he's brought to Firefly Lake. But her daughter lives and breathes hockey, and Scott is the only one who can make her dreams come true. And as they spend more time together, sparks begin to fly. Can Scott convince Cat that settling down isn't the same as settling? Or will she leave again, breaking the heart of her hometown hero?

From Warrior And Lover To Enemy And Betrayer, The Terrible Secrets Of Kalona's Past Are Revealed He was laughing with her as he spread his wings and lifted her from the ground, twirling her around. Nyx gasped and clutched his neck. Kalona tightened his arms around her. 'Trust me, Goddess. I would never let you fall.' From the Sun and from the Moon, two winged brothers are born: golden Erebus, playmate and friend, and mysterious Kalona, Warrior and lover, companions of the Goddess Nyx. From the first, Nyx loves them both deeply, but differently. With Erebus, she can talk and laugh and dance, and take joy in the games he plays among the humans of the Earth. With Kalona, the fire in her body burns bright, and she can rest in the solace of his strength and protection. But for Kalona, Nyx's nights are not enough. Every second he is not with her he is filled with doubt and longing, and every time he fails to please her, he cannot forgive himself. Ruled by anger and jealousy of his brother, and consumed by his love for his Goddess, Kalona seeks the power to prove his worth, and to claim once and for all that Nyx eternally belongs to him. And at the edges of the Earth, a Darkness is stirring, waiting for its chance, for the doorway in through a heart that it knows will welcome it...
