Cheer for Rose Morgan—strong, determined and driven—a brilliant publicist who thought she had finally overcome her tragic past when, once again, her life is turned upside down. Rose and Cole’s passionate love story continues in this second full-length novel in The Hold series.

Distraught by news of Cole’s unexpected marriage, Rose Morgan tries to pick up the pieces of her life, only to be confronted by Cole at every turn. With her PR career in serious jeopardy, Rose can’t escape his orbit and is forced to continue working on his account. Under snowballing pressure, she seeks solace from unlikely sources.

Reeling from the disastrous fallout after his drunken night in Las Vegas, rock star Cole Manchester is a tormented man. He reaches out to Rose, the one woman who has always fixed his mistakes, only to realize that he might have pushed her away forever. Now, he’ll do whatever it takes to get her back.

Rose and Cole each must face their deepest fears if their love is to survive. But Cole’s stalker is becoming increasingly unhinged … and dangerous. In the end, Rose and Cole must decide if some things are just too Hard to Hold.

Customer Reviews


The continuation of Rose and Cole’s story is an exciting read! The story builds on the same characters as the first book with a few new faces mixed in. It too ends on a cliffhanger, and we are left anticipating the third and final installment!

Publicist Rose Morgan is distraught when it appears her boyfriend married someone else! Yes, she had doubts and gave him reason to be upset, but to go off and marry someone else? She can’t believe he’d do this to her!

Rock star Cole Manchester swears he didn’t marry anyone! Yes, he got drunk and went off with this woman who he later figured out was his stalker, but he wasn’t crazy enough to marry her … was he?

Rose’s job is on the line as she tries to fix this mess of Cole’s image. Can she believe him when he swears he didn’t do anything with this woman or is he only further lying to her? As the stalker becomes more enraged, will the bodyguards be able to keep them safe?
