IT'S IN HIS ARMS BY SHELLY ALEXANDER
A Red River Valley Novel
Release Date: January 3, 2017
Lorenda Lawson has built a safe, sheltered life for her two young sons since their father was KIA several years ago. She has a beautiful cottage and a support network of family and friends. No one in Red River suspects that her marriage to Cam was ever less than perfect. Nobody, that is, except the gorgeous ex-SEAL who’s shown up after a long absence: Cam’s notorious twin brother, Mitchell.
Mitchell Lawson was a teenage rebel who fled Red River after the local watering hole burned down, choosing the military over jail. Now he has a new mission: making amends with the town and his sheriff father for his hell-raising days, while resisting the woman he’s always wanted. Between Lorenda’s warmth and sensuality and her boys’ mischievous matchmaking ploys, it won’t be easy.
When a string of fires breaks out, suspicious eyes turn toward Mitchell. Lorenda risks her reputation for his sake—but she’ll need to risk her heart, too, to bring this onetime bad boy home for good.
This is my first "read" of 2017 and I am impressed! Shelly Alexander is a whiz when it comes to contemporary romances and she did a wonderful job with this novel. It had all the feels that I was expecting and even gave me butterflies, which as of late, has been very hard to do! With that being said, this is a wonderful novel filled with heart, love, and a little angst thrown in the mix just to keep readers hearts racing. It details the life of single mom, Lorenda and ex navy seal, Mitchell, who also happens to be the twin brother of her late husband. How is that for drama!?!?! Don't let this fool you into thinking its a cheating story though, because it's not. It is just a beautiful story that will take over your heart! I definitely recommend this one.
