Love on the Run
The Love Stories Series, Book 1
By Ellie Spark
She thought she was leaving love behind.
When Kara Reynolds runs from her fiancé on her wedding day, she leaves San Francisco, along with her humiliated and un-supportive family, and heads to a small town in northern California to get her head together and face the truth about her desires. She can’t commit herself to a man when in her heart she knows it is relationships with women that she really wants to explore. Café owner Steph McKenzie inherited Anna’s Place from her grandmother, but her ex-girlfriend’s betrayal has left her struggling both financially and emotionally. First Larissa stole her heart. Then she stole her money. Is Steph’s luck beginning to turn when a visiting stranger says she’s a business coach specializing in re-energizing flailing businesses and offers her help? The timing couldn’t be worse for either of them, but the attraction is undeniable. When ghosts from their pasts return to intrude on their fragile, budding relationship, hidden secrets may destroy any chance of a future together.
Will Kara and Steph have the courage to stop running from love, and run toward it together?
