An unexpected kiss at sunset can change your life.
Luke overcame his background, thanks to the military. Now, a medic at the county jail on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, he had a job, small apartment, and friends. Not bad for a loner like him.
Allie was sunshine, laughter, and fun. A teacher with a glow about her that made him wish to be worthy of a woman like her.
A phone call changed his life. Now guardian to his niece and nephew, he needed stability to prove he was the best person for them. He needed Allie… but was she willing to step in or run from his chaotic new life.
And when danger and temptation threatened his new life, what would he do to protect them? And would he be able to live with the choices he had to make?
Military duty called them away to war zones, but after tours overseas, the group of friends found their way back home as men, seeking the peaceful little seaside town. Now, the band of brothers, together once more, work to provide a place for less fortunate veterans to call home.
Luke’s past was difficult but rather let it define him he chose to first join the army where he became a medic and then returned home to work at the jail. When he comes to the rescue of a beautiful woman the sparks fly however they would have a few challenges to overcome when he needs to take custody of his niece and nephew.
Allie is a teacher who has a big heart. Luke was there when she needed someone the most, so she is more than happy to be by his side as they adjust to raising his niece and nephew. The only thing standing in the way of their happiness is the past that won’t leave Luke alone and his need to protect those he loves.
Luke and Allie may have had very different pasts, but they couldn’t be more perfect for each other as they fight for the life and family they are creating.
Meet Maryann Jordan
I have always been an avid reader. My early memories were of my mother taking me to the library and allowing me to check out as many books as I could carry. My favorite books were checked out numerous times and read over and over. I would use my Barbie dolls to play out the scenes in books (such as Nancy Drew!).
I have written as a hobby for many years (probably since childhood). I have written devotionals, autobiographical writings about having a severely handicapped, medically fragile child, about my mother’s Alzheimer’s, and other subjects that interest me.
I joke that I “cut my romance teeth” on the old historical romance books. In 2013, I started a blog to showcase wonderful writers. In 2014, I finally gave in to the characters in my head pleading for their story to be told. Thus, Emma’s Home was created.
I worked as a counselor in a high school and was involved in education for the past 30 years, until retiring in 2015. I have been married to a wonderfully patient man for 35 years and have 2 adult, very supportive daughters. When writing, my dog or one of my cats will usually be found in my lap!
I love to hear from readers, so please email me! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
