Someone to Love

Someone to Love is a heartwarming story about moving on after a loss and finding the strength to take a chance on a new future. A future that isn’t expected or mapped out in advance, but instead develops organically, after learning how to let go of the reins and live again. It’s a story about family, being one and finding one.

Ethan Gallagher isn’t the easy guy to get to know, which is understandable given what he’s been through. But beneath that rough exterior is a man in dire need of rediscovering his heart, his life. Willow Dunaway is the perfect woman to shake Ethan up and take him out of his comfort zone, making him embrace the part of his life he’d forgotten how to live.

Someone To Love is the second book in author Donna Alward’s Darling VT series and my favorite book to date. With rich characters and real world problems, this is a beautiful emotional story that captured my heart and brought forth a wide range of emotions.

Love. Love. Loved it!

donna-alward-authorWhile bestselling author Donna Alward was busy studying Austen, Eliot and Shakespeare, she was also losing herself in the breathtaking stories created by romance novelists like LaVyrle Spencer, Judith McNaught, and Nora Roberts.  Several years after completing her degree she decided to write a romance of her own and it was true love! Five years and ten manuscripts later she sold her first book and launched a new career. While her heartwarming stories of love, hope, and homecoming have been translated into several languages, hit bestseller lists and won awards, her very favorite thing is when she hears from happy readers.
