With her recording career on the slide, Deanna Hart heads home to Cleveland to search for new inspiration. What she finds is a man who has never stopped thinking about her. Eric Bell is now the principal at their former school, and he’s never been shy about trying to get her attention. Down-to-earth and downright sexy, Eric is about to open Deanna up to new possibilities.

But just as soon as they find each other, a crushing Hart family secret could end Deanna’s dream of starting over. Will she be able to capture the kind of love she has never believed in, the kind that lasts forever?

Heart to Heart is the third and final book in this romantic and compelling series about three sisters:


REVIEWS:
I just finished reading your Harts In Love series. I waited until I had all three books before I read them and let me tell you it was worth the wait. I love the way you let each story flow into the other, it was more of continuation then individuals stories of each sister. A lot of time they take a series and they seem to have not connection. Loved your books will be looking to more of your books in the future.
~ D. Small

“Perrin’s strong characters and even stronger storyline make this a keeper of a novel.” – RT Book Reviews

Geeky but brilliant college professor Sadie Bligh has failed once again to win the most prestigious award in mathematics. All she has to show for her life’s work is a flat-lined career and a non-existent social life. So when

But Sadie’s first night in Vegas involves an unfortunate run-in with a mojito and a poker table, drawing the attention of the casino’s deputy chief of security. Nick Saxon thinks Sadie’s a problem, but she thinks he’s
incredibly sexy. Since she’s come to Vegas to let loose, Nick just might fit the bill.

With a sick mother to care for and a boss who hates his guts, Nick has enough on his plate, and the bundle of mayhem called Sadie Bligh spells nothing but trouble. She’s also funny and smart, and the sexual energy between them could light up the Vegas strip. But when she’s fingered for
counting cards at the blackjack table, Nick is faced with a stark choice: protect her and risk getting fired, or toss her out on her sweet behind and risk never seeing her again.

Jack Gordon is Ann Arbor’s most delectable bachelor. At age thirty-five, he’s made millions as a top-selling Ann Arbor real estate broker and has the right connections to close a deal by any means necessary. With his rugged
good looks and compelling personality, he has a virtual black book most men would kill for and he uses it often, never settling for one woman for very long.

While his DOM/SUB past remains buried, exactly where he wants it, an undercurrent of boredom and dissatisfaction runs through his life now. A disastrous experience years earlier made him swear off the whole scene, but the more Jack suppresses his natural Dom, the more his frustration grows.

Sara Thornton, a rookie in the real estate game, has fast-tracked herself to the top of the Ann Arbor market. Her life reflects a disciplined and focused routine, exactly the way she wants it. However, as her career takes off,
the fulfillment she seeks remains inexplicably out of reach. The one thing she knows for sure, she will not join the Jack Gordon groupies in her company, no matter how tempting that might seem.

A chance encounter, then a difficult transaction, throw Jack and Sara together and the sparks fly high and hot and often. Forced to confront the compulsions that gain momentum with each sizzling encounter, their
relationship seems to spiral out of control until Jack finally admits what he needs, and shows Sara what she’s been missing.”

Cantrell’s characters came to life right before my eyes and involved me in their world instantly because they were so easy to relate to. But the main reason I enjoyed this book so much is because of the emotion throughout.

It was heart wrenching, lighthearted, touching and romantic at times as well as filled with so many misunderstandings that you couldn’t help but cry and other times be laughing out loud.

Millie Fields’s life could be a Greek tragedy. As if frizzy hair and a dead-end job weren’t enough, the heartthrob of her dreams, Graham Lance, doesn’t even know she exists.

SNEAK PEEK:

A mirror reproduced a person’s face.
But if one wanted to know, really know a person, really know what she was like, really know what her character, her integrity, her honor were like, all one had to do was scrutinize her family, study the friends she’d chosen, and one would have a pretty accurate sketch of the person in question.
That was Connor’s motivating factor for coming to Harmony Village.
To scrutinize Krysia Barciniak’s family. To study Krysia Barciniak’s friends.
His theory contained one flaw.
Krysia Barciniak herself, he admitted with some reluctance.
When his gaze had first connected with hers, something indefinable had passed between them. The power of that instant in time had left him breathless. Speechless. Unnerved.
Although her parents and friends all appeared small-town friendly, possessing small-town friendly countenances and small-town friendly manners, it was the woman herself, standing before him with her mother’s arm draped over her shoulders and encircled by her friends and neighbors, that bore the most accurate sketch of Krysia Barciniak.
Her cheekbones were high, her jaw strong, but her eyes… Her eyes, blue like sapphires, blue like his daughter’s, told the story her lips never would. Her eyes, so dark, so full of thoughts and secrets and pain, especially when she glanced down at Brenna, revealed her vulnerability.
With the promptness of the panicked, Connor eased his features into an impassive expression when he saw her raise those eyes to him. And once again, felt shivers of awareness ripple down his arms.
Don’t go making a forest out of a twig, he admonished himself, stomping down on the intrusive yet inexplicable sensations swirling through him.
Don’t go jumping to any conclusions here. He pushed his free hand into his pants pocket and balled it into a fist.
You’re here to observe her, to determine, with no margin for error, if she is trustworthy to let into Brenna’s life. There can be no margin for error, he reminded himself, planting his linen-clad legs wide and locking his spine.
He would protect Brenna at all costs. She was his daughter and he would protect her and no amount of vulnerability and pain scratched into the blue eyes staring at him now would soften his resolve. Would not soften him at all if he detected the merest possibility of a corrupt character.
Time would tell.
And he had plenty of it.
“I’m sure you and your daughter will settle down nicely here. Harmony Village prides itself on being a great place to raise children. It’s safe enough to walk alone at night and leave your doors unlocked,” Krysia said, her voice precise and professional and pried into his thoughts. “It is a Harmony Village tradition to always make newcomers and visitors feel like family. If I can be of any assistance—”
Family. The word reminded him of his dead wife. The word made his chest feel tight. The word made his voice sound curt. “I’m certain we’ll be just fine.” He shrugged with the words. Seeing the puzzled hurt on her face, he cursed himself and felt obliged to add a belated, “Thank you.”
She gave him a bright smile, but it was strained around the edges, and he felt his heart give a quick, catchy sigh. He would do well to remember he was a man on a mission. And that mission did not include antagonizing the one person, the one woman, the one…mother…Brenna had left in this world.
Mother.
Connor closed his eyes. A year after Missy’s death, he still grieved as though it had happened only yesterday. Brenna still grieved as though it had happened only yesterday. His eyes lifted to Krysia’s and he made a sound somewhere between throat clearing and sighing.
“Brenna and I are pleased to be here, aren’t we honey?” His fingers tightening in encouragement, he winked at his daughter. “And we’re looking forward to making new…friends.”
Once again, his eyes lifted to Krysia’s. When their gazes met and melded, she gave him a careful smile. His skin prickled with awareness and he found himself catching his breath.
Though she wasn’t as pretty as Missy, she wasn’t…unattractive.
The thought struck him hard and fast. The pain it produced shocked him.
How could he—his gut twisted—see another woman, any woman, but especially this woman, even for a few seconds, and notice her looks, be drawn to her…looks? It’d only been a year since Missy died. Dropping his gaze, he frowned at the toe of his shoe.
The guilt kicked in.
