"Well worth reading"
He waited for this moment for most of his life, but now
that he apparently found his older brother Sam in Baxter,
Ohio, Rye McRae hesitates, not sure of the reception he
will receive. As he watches the house with a hope of
finding family love inside, Emma McRae returns home from
college. Her boyfriend Mark abused her so Emma fled to the
sanctuary of her adopted parents' home. However, Sam and
Rachel leave town to help a pregnant relative before Emma
can explain her plight.
Rye finally finds the courage to knock, but an
answering Emma thinks he is seeking a job with Sam. He
fails to tell her his identity claiming only to be a friend
of her adopted father. As Mark begins to stalk Emma, Rye
intercedes to keep her safe and that leads to Rye getting
into trouble with the law. Still Rye will risk jail to
keep Emma safe, not just because she is family, but because
he loves her with all his heart.
Known for her engaging novels that hook the reader from
start to finish (see UNBREAK MY HEART), Teresa Hill
provides another strong tale that sub-genre fans will
complete in one sitting. The story line is loaded with
action and the characters are fully developed though the
audience needs to accept Emma, recovering from an abusive
relationship, taking a stranger into her home. Still, Ms.
Hill provides her fans with a strong romantic suspense that
takes the reader to THE EDGE OF HEAVEN.

The last thing Rye expected when he came to the postcard-
perfect town of Baxter, Ohio, was to find himself falling
for a woman. It certainly wasn't what he'd been seeking
when he showed up on the doorstep of her family's quaint
But there she was, the kind of woman he'd never dreamed he
could have. Kind-hearted and too trusting for her own good,
Emma McRae's in trouble - the kind she shouldn't be trying
to handle on her own.
The last thing Rye needs is more trouble in his life, but
he can't quite resist her.
Emma has more than just trouble at the moment. She has
secrets of her own, and Rye's certainly not going to like
hers, once they come out.
But what's a woman to do when she senses that she has one,
brief chance to get it right? When she's falling in love
too fast with a man who's made it clear he doesn't plan to
stay for long?
She opens up her heart and her arms, and hopes her love
will be enough to make him stay with her forever.
