He is the one she couldn't remember. She is the one he couldn't forget...

After being unexpectedly kicked off a movie set, her part given to a younger actress, Savannah Payne flees to her holiday house in Bounty Bay. There, in her little hideaway managed for her by her older cousin, she’ll be able to lick her wounds privately, and prepare for an audition of a lifetime in L.A. Only her cousin has rented the place out to an old friend for the next month. A friend whose knowledge of the law means she has no easy way to evict her stop-the-heart sexy tenant. He tempts her, challenges her, and sees to the heart of who she is with knowing ice-blue eyes.

Glen Cooper has woken up and smelled the decaying roses. Working in his father’s law firm is murder on his creative heart. A month in New Zealand’s sub-tropical Far North without the distraction of family and work is what he needs to finally complete writing the book he’s worked on for years. He hadn’t anticipated the woman who’d haunted his university days arriving on his doorstep, demanding her house back. But the distraction of her close by must stop. With a literary agent’s deadline approaching, he has to ignore his growing attraction to Savannah or his dream may never become a reality.

Something about Glen stirs Savannah’s blood and the slippery memories of a quiet young man she glimpsed in the background of her tumultuous teenage years begin to return. But how can they make the sacrifice love requires when she has one foot out the door—ready to walk away from him a second time?

KNOW YOUR HEART is the second story in Tracey Alvarez’s Far North series, set against the stunning backdrop of Aotearoa, New Zealand. If you like heartwarming, sexy and sweet small-town romances, you’ll love sharing the journey with these authentic men and women struggling to find their special someone.

Customer Reviews

A good read with a great storyline

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

We were first introduced to the idea of Savannah in the first book in the Far North series when we read some of her cousin's back story. In Know your Heart we get to know her a lot better. And who doesn't love a strong, willful leading lady? And then of course there is the equally strong and willful hunk of man that ends up stealing her heart (what kind of romance would it be if people didn't fall in love?)

Tracey Alvarez has done it again, she has taken a story that lives in her mind, and given us the chance to meet, get to know, and fall in love with the people that live there. I would recommend this book (along with her others) to anyone looking for a feel good story, just make sure you've got time, because if you're like me, you won't want to put it down one you start reading.

Great book!

This book is a must read for romance fans . The story draws you in until you cant put it down. I was allowed to read this book for my review.

Follow your heart

It was love at first sight for him. She never saw him as more than her cousin's best friend.

Glen Cooper has always been that guy who put the needs of others before his own. That is until he took an extending leave from his father's law firm to finally finish his novel. Spending a month in an isolated farmstead will stimulate his creativity. Little does he know, the object of his teenage dreams is about to land on his doorstep.

Savannah Payne (Davis), recently passed up for a role by a younger actress, goes home to her country hideaway to regroup and focus on getting her next big role. Her biggest challenge isn’t' the new script, it's her stubborn tenant who won't vacate her house and break his lease. She's always gotten her way and this time will be no different.

Hilarity ensues as Savannah campaigns to get Glen to surrender and leave her house. Two equally strong will people with opposing goals learn to respect and love each other. This was a fun read. Lauren, Nate, and Drew, from Hide Your Heart, also make appearances. Once again, Tracey Alvarez has created realistic, relatable, characters you can't help of adore.
