WOW

Once again, Tia Louise gave us an amazing book that keeps the reader hooked!

In One To Save, we follow Derek and Melissa's story after what happened in One To Protect. Sloan, Melissa's ex-husband, is dead and Derek is hiding from Melissa what happened when he died. But someone else knows exactly what happened and wants Derek behind bars. How will Melissa react when she discovers the truth? Who wants to send Derek to prison?

One To Save is an amazing book with a very emotional story that keeps the reader wanting more. It is also a steamy story full of action and mystery. Tia's writing is flawless and she is able to make the reader feels everything that her characters are feeling.

Since I read One To Hold, I've been cheering for Derek and Melissa. They are so great together!
I fell in love with Derek in One To Hold, but One To Save solidified that love. He is everything a man should be: protective, possessive, fierce, kind and gentle. He has is flaws but that make me love him even more.
Melissa grew so much since I met her in One To Hold. She became very secure of herself and she fights for what she wants and what she believes, even if that compromises her relationship with Derek.
Loved to see all the characters together!

If you're looking for a series full of emotion, action, mystery, steamy moments and heartwarming, the One To Hold Series is perfect for you!

One to Save
By Tia Louise
*unedited draft, subject to change
Release Date: March 26, 2015

Page 1, Chapter 1: Secrets

Melissa

In the cool darkness of the semi-crowded bar, I study the glass in front of me and consider my journey. Memories of my old life fade like smoke in a glass. The shame that held me so tightly now dances at the edges of my mind like the whisper of a bad dream, a flicker of shadows that no longer make sense in my world.

Young women in their shiny slip dresses twist and laugh on the dance floor, but instead of resentment, my lips melt into a smile. My old self — cynical, bitter, defeated — is a memory I have to work to recall. These days I could dance all night with them, but I'd rather spend my energy on other activities.

The slim glass holds a pale amber liquid, and I can't resist taking a sip. An involuntary wince pinches my eyes as I put it down. Seven and seven. Refreshing citrus dragged down by the heavy undertone of whiskey. So gross.

Sliding my palms over my thighs, I realize my outfit isn't much different from those girls on the dance floor. The deep red silk is fitted at my waist, and drapes loosely over my torso. My long dark hair is swept over one shoulder revealing a thin spaghetti strap. I lightly touch the delicate gold chain around my neck leading to the floating heart pendant that sits between my collarbones, and light glances off the thick gold cuff on my wrist.

Unlike that first night, I'm alone here. My best friend Elaine is miles away with her new husband, most likely indulging in that blissful honeymoon period of early marriage. Make that, most certainly indulging. I know those two very well.

I came by myself to the bar in Princeton after finishing my business with a client in town. My infant son is back in Wilmington, spending the weekend with his grandmother. Studying my hands, I admire the deep blue sapphire ring on my finger, but I have no wedding band.

At thirty-two, I'm an unmarried mother of a beautiful little boy, and I wouldn't change a thing... Yet. The tiny silver scar at my hairline reminds me of what a bad marriage is, and with my successful marketing business and the gorgeous cottage at the beach that I own, I'm satisfied with my life, calm. Not desperate. I'll take my next steps deliberately, with confidence.

All these thoughts preoccupy my mind when I blink up and catch him watching me from across the square-shaped bar. Blue eyes, strikingly blue because of the way they stand out beneath his dark brow, coupled with collar-length thick dark hair.

He's massive, at least six-two, and elegantly dressed with a thick stainless watch on his wrist. I can spot his type a mile away — rich, powerful, accustomed to getting whatever he wants... I know what he wants. A smile teases at the corner of my mouth. No coincidence I happened to look up at that exact moment to catch his gaze.

He starts to move, but his eyes never leave mine. I don't look away either. I also know what I want. Thick cords of muscle ripple beneath the thin black sweater he wears as he glides past the oblivious patrons talking and laughing. Some are more animated than others, waving their arms and putting their drinks in peril. A close beard shadows his face, and the muscles low in my pelvis tighten at the thought of how it will feel brushing the soft skin of my inner thighs...

✿ The Author ✿


I live in New England with my young family. I'm a stay at home mom to two very active children. For all of you who are familiar with the stress of this job, I decided to complete an item on my bucket list and write a book. When I'm not writing, you will find me cooking, reading, shopping or being silly with the kids. In my opinion, one of life's greatest pleasure is being able to get lost in a book.

Genre: Contemporary

Hosted by: Francessca's Romance Reviews





✾ Synopsis ✾


Erin never would have expected to fall in love. Never. Not with her past, and not with her fear. She never dated; she didn't even allow herself friendships. She didn't trust her judge-of-character skills enough to allow anyone close... until Marcus.

With him, a deep connection happened in spite of the walls she'd so carefully constructed around herself. His self-confessed rage fueled much of his life, with the exception of her. For Erin, Marcus dares to make the step toward love... one with the potential to heal them both.

✿ What others had to say about the book ✿


What an amazing, beautiful story of two people falling in love before they even meet.
~ Goodreads

I found this book so charming. I loved watching Erin evolve from victim to victor. I loved watching Marcus learn to trust himself as Erin opened up to him. I loved everything from their playful banter to the scenes where Marcus was fiercely protective of her.
~ Goodreads Review

Such a wonderful book, that I will continue to remember because it has such strong meaning and is so much more than a book about love and sex but it's about growing and becoming who you want to be In Erin's case "adorable badass butterfly".
~ Goodreads Review

✿ The Author ✿


Mother of Two Boys...
My husband and I have been married for 17 years and are blessed with two amazing young men. They are 10 and 12 right now, and both are on very different parts of the autism spectrum. I've learned so much being their mom and I feel pretty lucky to have become part of a community of loving, understanding people.

If you'd like to meet my oldest son, watch Big Bang Theory and shake hands with Sheldon. Those two are so similar, straight down to the fake laugh when they recognize something is funny.

My youngest cannot be explained. He's more of an experience, and a joyful one at that.

Romance Novelist...
I've always loved to write. I've written for newspapers and magazines, also a host of personal projects. Then in December of 2012 I was reading on my first Kindle, gobbling up romances left and right. That's when I fell in love with Ethan Blackstone, by the way.

I was inspired to sit down and write. Less than one year later I've published three books, written another and its sequel novella, and started on two more. Another series popped into my head, as well. Now as of August of 2014, I'm on the verge of publishing book six, with at least five started or specifically planned. Since I'm sure I won't update this bio for a long time, you’ll have to rely on my Facebook updates to know what’s going on with Kemmie Michaels romances. You can also subscribe to my newsletterfor releases, covers, sales, and other news.

...and I LOVE coffee.
