Hot Cover Monday : Damaged Goods by Talia Hibbert

Hot Cover Monday : Damaged Goods by Talia Hibbert

They fell in love fifteen years ago and never quite fell out again… Laura Burne arrives in Beesley-on-Sea searching for peace, happiness, and safety—not for the teenage sweetheart she left behind. And yet, one moonlit night on the beach, she finds him anyway. Samir may be a man now, but he’s still sexy as sin, still sweet as pie, and still determined to take care of her. The problem is, while he’s remained the same, Laura’s life is forever changed—and not just by the unborn child she carries. She’s on the run from her own personal monster. Her baby’s father. Her husband. There isn’t a man alive who’d take on those complications. So Laura has to remember that just because Samir protects her, and makes her smile, and watches her with something close to hunger in his eyes, it doesn’t mean he wants her… Which is a shame. Because, against all reason and all goddamn common sense, Laura just might want him. Damaged Goods is an interracial romance starring a… Keep Reading »
