New York Times bestselling author Skye Jordan brings you a sexy new series of stand alone romances!
After a lifetime of abandonment, Miranda Wright depends on no one but herself. She’s about to break ground on her dream of building green, affordable houses for retired veterans, and she’s not about to let anything alter her plans—especially not a sexy know-it-all architect from New York. Her strict, no-seconds rule has kept her heart safe this far, so why fix what isn’t broken?
When a family crisis strikes, Jack Taylor is on the next flight to Nashville. But coming home stirs up more betrayal than answers, and he finds the perfect distraction in a feisty but guarded brunette. Only, one-night turns into a whole lot more, and Jack finds himself all-in by the time he discovers that Miranda’s secrets may very well cost him not only the family business, but his heart.
So Wright is the first book in Skye Jordan‘s new contemporary romance series, The Wrights, and is Miranda Wright, the oldest in her family’s story (though her two younger siblings won’t actually be “Wrights” since they have different fathers…still I assume they’ll be the focus of the other books…?). Miranda grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, was abandoned by her mother as a teen, and ended up with a juvie record. But she turned herself around–got her GED, learned how to weld, and became the head of her own team in a construction company. However, her life has “taught” her that the only person she can trust is Marty, her substitute father. Her actual family? Useless. Romance? Forget about it.
So when her one night stand looks like it might turn into more and her half sister is suddenly back on the scene, Miranda is all kinds of suspicious. Surely nothing good could come from these new ties she’s building. When life seems to prove her right, will she have the courage to rise above her fear and go for what she really wants?
(Of course she will–eventually. It’s a romance. And I realize I’m barely even talking about Jack, who I loved so much–but honestly, I loved almost everything about him, especially his fabulous nephews. And though he needed to do some growing of his own–one thing I really loved about this story is how they both contributed to the implosion of their relationship and they both owned up to it and worked to make amends–let’s face it, Miranda is “the Wright” of the story and deserves the lion’s share of the review.
A wonderful series start–I can’t wait for the next 2 books!
