When You Close Your Eyes

2 min read

Coming Autumn of 2018 with The Wild Rose Press (New York).

When You Close Your Eyes was first published as At the Heart of the Stone in 2016 with Loose Id Publishing. It was the winner of the Coffee Time Romance Reviewer’s Award, and recipient of a 5-star review from Midwest Book Review. Until the book is released, please enjoy this blurb and a reader’s video blog review from a year ago on YouTube! I absolutely love it when readers speak up and let me know what they thought about the novel, and I hope to see more of these when the book releases.



Dreams are the perfect shelter for our fantasies, safe havens to step inside without changing our daily lives. For Lark Braithwaite, all that is about to change. During the last six months, Lark has dreamt of a mysterious Irish lover, who knows what she wants, and gives her exactly what she needs. In her waking life in busy London, things aren’t as ideal, as her long-term relationship with Charles, her controlling fiancé, has hit a dry spell.

When Lark is called home to Oregon for her father’s funeral right in the middle of a high-stakes corporate merger, she heads back to face the demons from her past. What she doesn’t expect is to meet her dream lover in the flesh. Niall O’Hagan steps straight out of her fantasies and right into her life, and the powerful connection they share rocks her foundation. Although she’s dealing with the bitterness of being betrayed by Charles and his jealousy, Niall soon stirs Lark’s awareness of the superficiality of her existence and reawakens not only her sexuality, but her soul.
