Sheltered her entire life, Jubilee Thornton yearns to spread her wings and fly after a childhood marked by illness. Her first goal? To attract the attention of the handsome schoolteacher she’s had a crush on for years, Heath DiMarco.
One fateful night, Jubilee throws caution to the wind and kisses Heath—until he pushes her away and tells her they can never be together.
Heartbroken, Jubilee vows to forget Heath and live the life she’s always wanted. In a fit of inspiration, she creates a list of resolutions: to go skinny-dipping, to go on dates, and to finally lose her virginity.
Heath DiMarco moved to the small town of Fair Haven seven years ago to escape the memories of his past. Now a well-respected elementary school teacher, he can’t afford to have a dalliance with the youngest sister of his best friend, no matter how much that single kiss on Halloween night shook his world.
That is until Heath finds Jubilee’s list of risqué resolutions. He can’t bear the thought of her with any man but him.
Yet he knows he can’t have her himself. Instead, Heath decides he’ll vet the men Jubilee wants to date. Jubilee agrees, but only if he teaches her how to flirt—and how to kiss.
He knows he should tell her no, but he can’t resist the temptation she presents.
As desire heats to a roaring flame between them, secrets threaten everything they both hold dear. Unless they untangle themselves from a dangerous web of lies, they will face heartbreak—or be transformed by a passionate love.

Jubilee and Heath
I really enjoyed reading Till There Was You (The Thorntons Book 6). Jubilee the youngest of the Thorntons has been sheltered by the whole family because she survived leukemia twice as a child. I love how Jubilee goes about by breaking the shell around her by making a list of what everything she has not done. Heath DeMarco a 5th grade teacher and best friend of her older brother Harrison has secrets of his own, has had a crush on Jubilee for years agrees to help her. Iris Morland wrote a interesting and exciting story about the interplay between Jubilee, her family and Heath with his secrets. I highly recommend reading Till There Was You you will enjoy reading the book.
