HARVEST MOON by Sharon Struth with giveaway

Harvest Moon by Sharon Struth

Getting past the librarian’s guard…

Trent Jamieson isn’t one for virtual romance, but there’s something about the intriguing woman he meets on the Internet he can’t resist. Then the small town bachelor discovers the mystery woman who shares her secrets with him online is the laced-up librarian in his self-defense class! Veronica Sussingham may just be his toughest student yet. Because how can he show the vulnerable beauty that some men are worth letting your guard down for?

Veronica returned to her hometown seeking shelter for her shattered spirit. The last thing she needs is a blue-eyed charmer who wants to show her how to live—and love—again. Then she discovers Trent is not just another admirer, but a man who knows her deepest secrets. Now Veronica must choose between running from her past—or finding future happiness with the kind of man she swore she’d never fall for…. 

Veronica’s fingers raced along the keyboard of her computer, a slight lift in her pulse as she entered the password to her e-mail account. Three days ago was the last time she’d heard from Ry. Her heart jumped when an e-mail from him finally appeared. She opened it.

Subject: Your Opinion

Hi Etta,

I’ve been swamped lately and apologize for being out of touch these past few days. I thought of you when I passed a singing group in a mall. Did you try out for the solo in your chorus group yet?

I remember my first solo, back in middle school. It was a “Rock n’ Roll” production. I’d been taking guitar lessons for a year and hoped I’d make the cut. Those lessons were the first time I understood the power music had over me. I got the part and think I did pretty solid justice to Elvis impersonators around the world with my version of “Rock Around the Clock.” The worst part was how they made me wear a white jumpsuit! Not my style then or now. Let’s just say, I won’t dress up like that again.

I’ve tweaked the music I sent you last month and would love your input. File is attached.

Promise to write more soon. Another busy day ahead…

Ry

P.S. Remember our first argument about bad music videos? I think you’ll agree THIS link contains the worst.

Their first argument? Unexpected tenderness for him settled in her heart. The idea they bantered in good humor, like a regular couple, pushed her a step closer to him. She opened the link to a video of “We Built This City,” and laughed through the entire video.

Her smile faded as Emily’s concerns echoed in her ears. Ry was a sweet man. He remembered things Veronica told him, like about her solo. The details, of course, omitted. Not a word about performing with The Right Notes at the town’s Harvest Festival because then he’d know too much, enough to locate her.

The first time they’d ever e-mailed away from the blog she’d admitted to him a reluctance to talk to a stranger through e-mail. He could’ve answered any number of ways, but his suggestion they keep their real names and where they lived private greeted her like an opened door to a safe haven.

A part of her wished she could tell Ry everything about her and ask the same of him. Did he ever think about meeting her, too?
