The Nearness of You (Love Everlasting) (The Thorntons Book 1)

Book 1, The Thorntons - The Thorntons Book 1

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Fall in love with THE THORNTONS, a family filled with sexy alpha males, passionate women, and lots of heart, all set in a delightful small town in the Pacific Northwest. Each book in the series is connected but can be read as a standalone.

The last thing Sara Flannigan needs is a man in her life. When she returns to her hometown, she vows to create a happy life for her son and to rebuild her life after a painful divorce. Yet when she meets her son’s new doctor, she can’t deny the spark of attraction that heats between them.

The problem?

He’s Harrison Thornton, the oldest son of the illustrious Thornton family. His family would never accept a woman like Sara, a woman who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. She tries to ignore the whispers of her past, but she soon realizes secrets can never stay hidden for long.

Especially from the man claiming her wounded heart.

Growing up in the rich and powerful Thornton family, Harrison has lived a charmed life. A renowned physician, the last thing he expects is to desire the mother of one of his patients. Sara is beautiful and intelligent, and she’s completely devoted to her son, something that only deepens his attraction to her.

He doesn't want a single night of passion, though: he wants forever. Yet there are forces at work and people determined to tear them apart. Even Sara turns from him, certain she's unworthy. Harrison refuses to let Sara slip away, and soon, he’s fighting the greatest battle of all.

The battle to win the heart of the woman he loves.

Customer Reviews

Wonderful

This is a wonderful book that has highs and lows. While the main character is portrayed as strong, it is a more realistic view of the women that society always seems as strong who never waver. That’s not real life. What is real life? The way this writer portrayed this strong woman who in private and with those she is most comfortable with fights her battles and deals with her emotions.

A great start to a series...

The Nearness OF You BY Iris Morland

I can't help reading the story for the Third time. It's very interesting & amusing How the author continues to arouse the interest OF the reader.

When is the story ...The very Thought OF You be free here in iBook?

Thanks....more power you you.

Sara and Harrison

This is/was a very good read. It's full of love, near deaf illnesses ,revenge, betrayal, embarrassment, lies, tight knit families, and being happy no matter what others think.

The next book will be something to read on a nice day while sipping a nice drink and fantasizing about your own life.
