"Our baby died on prom night, and nothing was ever the same again."
Corabelle doesn't feel like any of the other college girls. On what should have been one of the happiest nights of her life, she and her boyfriend Gavin watched a nurse disconnect the ventilator from their seven-day-old baby. During the funeral two days later, Gavin walked out and never returned.
Since then, her life has been a spiral of disasters. The only thing that has helped is her ability to black out whenever the pain gets too hard to bear, a habit that has become an addiction.
When Gavin shows up in her astronomy class four years later, he is hell-bent on getting her back, insisting she forgive him. Corabelle knows she can't resist the touch that fills the empty ache that has haunted her since he left. But if he learns what she has done, if he follows the trail back through her past, her secrets will destroy their love completely. And once again, she'll lose the only person who always believed she was innocent.

It is definitely heartwarming to see their story resolve the way it did. -- Lovin Los Libros
After four long years of separation, Gavin has finally reunited with his childhood love Corabelle. She’s forgiven him for leaving her during the funeral of their seven-day-old baby, and also for where he ended up — in Mexico to get a vasectomy.
But a message from Rosa, a prostitute he met the day of his surgery, brings his life to a crashing halt. She claims Gavin has fathered a son, now three years old and living with her cousin in Ensenada. He doesn’t know if he can trust Rosa, who never mentioned the boy before, or if his delicate reconciliation with Corabelle can withstand the shock if it is true.
Corabelle believes their future together is the right thing despite their past. But when she learns of this other child, the one thing she lost long ago and might never have again with Gavin, Corabelle’s faith that her life will ever follow her old dream is shattered. To make things right for Gavin and his son, she just might have to let go of the only person she always believed would be her forever love.
Forever Loved is the heart-wrenching conclusion to Gavin and Corabelle's passionate story.
BOOK 3: FOREVER SHELTERED

Make an appointment to visit Dr. Darion and Tina for your next reading therapy. They have a cure for the hopeless romantic. -- Michel, Smut Book Junkie
Tina would rather sew up her girl parts with dental floss than go on a second date with a man. She's been dumped enough to know not to get attached.
But when Dr. Darion Marks comes into her art therapy room to ask a favor for a special patient, Tina recognizes the haunted look he buries beneath his stoic professionalism. So rather than be forced to ditch the handsome doctor after a single night, she decides not to date him at all.
So how exactly DO they end up half-naked in Surgical Suite B?
Dr. Darion has a lot to hide. His baby sister is the only family he has left, and he’s not leaving her treatment to some incompetent hack.
But now he’s breaking every hospital rule imaginable. He lied about his sister so he can manage her care, and now he’s banging the art therapy teacher between patient rounds like a fraternity boy at a keg party.
Nobody believes this can end well, not Tina’s friend Corabelle, who is overcoming a tragic history much like Tina’s, or even pink-haired Jenny, who thinks sex with strangers is good for your metabolism.
But Dr. Darion and Tina have one thing going for them – a fierce passion for each other that just might obliterate all their doubts, and solve all their problems.
Forever Sheltered includes many favorite characters from Forever Innocent and Forever Loved, as well as the much-anticipated wedding of Gavin and Corabelle.
For anyone that’s ever lost a child, this will touch your heart! One of my favorite authors and the stories will have you hooked.
The set is an amazing value! Three wonderful books for one low price. Must read!
I read the individual books as they came out and each of them was wonderful. The reviews below were copied from my reviews of the individual books.
Forever Innocent - A very emotional book.
This was a great book even though it dealt with very heavy subject matter. Once I started reading it was difficult to put down so I could get some sleep. You could feel the pain and angst that Gavin and Corabelle were feeling; I was pulling for them all the way. This book doesn't exactly have a cliffhanger - there is a HFN (happy for now) but it did leave me wanting to find out more about Gavin and Corabelle. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
Forever Loved - Wonderful, heart wrenching, will stay with you.
I couldn’t put this book down; it was so compelling and the heartbreak that Corabelle and Gavin suffer before getting to their HEA was so believable and real it was almost painful to read. Rest assured – they do get to the HEA.
This book fills in some of the details that were missing from Forever Innocent (although I didn’t feel anything was missing when I read that book). It gives us more insight into was happened to both characters during the time right before and right after the funeral.
If you’ve already read Forever Innocent you won’t want to miss this book. While I felt that Forever Innocent was a great book with a HFN (happy for now) this book gets you to the HEA that these two young people deserve.
I am also looking forward to reading Tina’s story in Forever Sheltered.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review but I did purchase Forever Innocent on my own first.
Forever Sheltered - Wonderful – made me laugh, made me cry,
I love books that make me feel things and this one certainly did that. The story is told from alternating POVs which was perfect for this story. Tina has had a difficult life but she has persevered and is coming out on top. She doesn’t do relationships but there’s something about Dr. Darion Marks that gets to her. She feels he’s hiding something and wants him to trust her enough to tell her about it. Dr. Darion has a difficult relationship with his father and this influences his behavior and why he’s keeping a secret from Tina.
This book has just the right amount of angst. It’s not a dark story but the road to their HEA isn’t really smooth; the epilogue was perfect. The heat level between the h & H is up there but I wouldn’t call it too graphic; there are no F-bombs.
I loved every bit of this story and it’s my favorite book in the series so far. It was hard to put down but I had to get some sleep! I’m looking forward to reading books for the other supporting characters.
I was given an ARC of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
I was blown away by this series. I love the stories, the love depth, emotion. Gosh, I cried, laughed and just smiled at some truly blessed parts. I hope to hear more of Corabelle and Gavin, do they have a baby?, and Tina and Darion, do they have a baby, get to keep Cynthia? Hopefully awaiting these answers and more great writing by this author.
