People come into your life for a Reason, a Season or a Lifetime ~
A Reason…
Questioning her relationship with a man who worships politics more than her, Shayla Clemmins escapes reality for the seductive sunsets of Greece. There she finds exactly what she didn’t know was missing from her life, but fears she’ll lose him to her past.
A Season…
John Mathews works hard and plays even harder. When he finds a new passion in the sensual warmth of Greece, he discovers that one lust-filled weekend of romance is just not enough.
A Lifetime…
With Shayla’s past catching up to her and an anonymous threat to her future, can she and John make a lifetime together?


Denise’s Review
Ms. Preston again impressed me with her ability to vividly describe the settings in her books; whether it is water in Greece or the slopes in Colorado she transports the reader to these locations with her masterful use of words.

Book 2 in this family saga tells the story of Shayla Clemins, Tom niece and John Matthew, Tess’s son. Book 1 is No More Wasted Time and I highly suggest you read it first.

Shayla had a tough life growing up, her Uncle Tom took her in and she now works for him. As the book opens Shayla is with a man she thinks is everything she could ever want, stable, kind and well off.

That is until John Mathews walks into her life. I adored watching Shayla and John connect; not only does Shay experience emotions she has never felt before but she also sees a family connection she has never experienced. Shay watching John interact with his sisters warmed my heart, she sees what family really means and truly sees the man John is inside.

John is honest, protective, hot as all heck and wise beyond his years. This young man buried his Dad and stepped up to care for him Mom and sisters. I should also add Shayla finding out John’s real age made for a few very funny exchanges.
John and Shay’s connection is something the reader will feel, it is hot, passionate and all encompassing.

Toward the end Ms. Preston had me gripping my kindle hoping things worked out…wishing that John and Shay will find there way back to each other, and no this statement is not what you think, it is not some formula we break up scenario that almost costs this couple everything… and Yes you are going to have to read it to find out what I am talking about.

I will say I loved the ending to this book… I had a smile from ear to ear; it left my heart happy and excited to read more about the Matthew/Clemins family. Ms. Preston has created a wonderful cast of characters that I look forward to continuing to read about as this family saga develops.

    This is my first entry into this particular blog hop tour–didn’t find out about the tour until today! But I’m glad I found out about you, Beverly, ’cause your story that takes place in Greece sounds yummy! I’ve always wanted to go to Greece but won’t ever make it–so I’ll do it by reading about it in my fave genre: romance! Continued success to you in your writing career.

      Thank you, Janice! Greece is on my bucket list too. 🙂 The Mathews/Clemmins Family series makes several stops in Greece, Tuscany, Bora Bora and of course the US.
      Happy reading and enjoy your book vacation! – Beverly
