Author: Jewel E Ann
Genre: A romantic suspense standalone
Release Date: December 10th, 2016
“My name is Scarlet Stone, and my biggest fear is that someday I will find what I want most in life, and it will be impossible to steal.”
What happens when life just stops? When one moment makes you question your entire existence?
Scarlet Stone is a third-generation thief who has everything: a doting fiancé, a spacious London flat, and a legitimate job offer. In a single breath, everything becomes nothing, and she finds herself on a plane to Savannah, Georgia in search of the meaning of life.
After securing a six-month lease for a beachfront house on Tybee Island, Scarlet changes the way she looks, thinks, eats—basically her entire outlook on life. She needs peace, but what she gets is a housemate who looks like Thor, acts like a warden, and smells her proximity like a Bloodhound.
Theodore Reed is a carpenter and perfectionist with a body built of steel, a black, hollow heart, and a hunger for revenge. He doesn’t like company, girly-smelling crap, and British accents.
He resents every breath she takes.
She’s fascinated by his every move.
In time, they discover their coexistence is toxic, their physical attraction is electric, the secrets they keep mean the difference between life and death, and the only truth they share is that everything is a lie.
“Over eighty-five percent of the world’s population believes in a higher power, yet, very few people believe in miracles.”

4TLOR 5 Star Review ~ by Lou
Yet another superb piece of writing from Jewel E. Ann. This author always manages to write such brilliantly layered stories full of suspense and emotion.
In this story we meet Scarlet Stone. A British girl who has packed up her life and moved across the sea to America. She is on a spiritual journey of self-discovery, changing her life and her outlook.
We also meet Theo!! What a conflicting, broken, wonderful character he is.
Theo, Scarlet and even the other characters all have secrets. We see them at their worst and we see them at their very best. This book is filled with sadness, happiness, heart-break, mystery and intrigue. It’s full of suspense and heart-stopping moments, but also filled with so much positivity and eye-opening moments it will make you look at things differently.
This book made me FEEL! It was touching and simply wonderful! But as much as there is darkness and heaviness in this book, there is of course a perfect mix of humour! My word I laughed so much in places! Some of the banter and scenes between Theo and Scarlet were brilliant!!
All of the characters play such an important role in this book. Even the smaller secondary characters are wonderful and all so terribly different. It has all been written and created so well with wonderfully complex and well developed characters and plot lines throughout.
As with any Jewel E Ann book I’ve read, you do need to concentrate when reading this book! You do need to absorb it all – this is not one for you skim readers out there. Every single word in this story plays a vital role in creating the entire picture of this brilliantly inspirational story!

5 brilliant stars!!
