Jack Valentini isn’t my type.

Sexy, brooding cowboys are fine in the movies, but in real life, I prefer a suit and tie. Proper manners. A close shave.

Jack might be gorgeous, but he’s also scruffy, rugged, and rude. He wants nothing to do with a “rich city girl” like me, and he isn’t afraid to say so.

But I’ve got a PR job to do for his family’s farm, so he’s stuck with me and I’m stuck with him. His glares. His moods. His tight jeans. His muscles.

His huge, hard muscles.

Pretty soon there’s a whole different kind of tension between us, the kind that has me misbehaving in barns, trees, and pickup trucks. I’ve never done anything so out of character—but it feels too good to stop.

And the more I learn about the grieving ex-Army sergeant, the better I understand him. Losing his wife left him broken and bitter and blaming himself. He doesn’t think he deserves a second chance at happiness.

But he’s wrong.

I don’t need to be his first love. If only he’d let me be his last.

Change…..some of us relish in it. Others despise it. One thing is certain – we face change over and over in life. For Jack Valentini – change has come in so many forms. The loss of a spouse that he thought he would spend the rest of his life with. A family farm that is suffering in an economy that thrives on change. The prospect of adapting to a market that very few family farms can survive. An unwelcome set of circumstances that is barreling down upon his shoulders.

Then redemption walks into his life in the form of Margot Lewiston. Looking for an escape from the city life, Margot takes on the task of revamping the image and notability for an organic farm a few hours from town. Once Margot arrives, she comes face to face with the resistant stance of Jack. Coming here was suppose to be a change from her lifestyle, but Margot will quickly discover that this assignment will take her to a place she never dreamed she could find happiness. Now – she just needs to convince Jack of that.

After We Fall is a sweet romance that visits the age old subject of opposites attract. Margot is a city gal by all standards, and the country vibe on Farmer Jack is right there front and center. A history of sadness and turmoil has hardened the heart that Jack now lashes out at everyone with. Only time can tell if Margot will break through that hard exterior and rescue him from the ghosts of his past.

A great Happily Ever After romance!!
