However, new friends are hard to find, and she feels lonely. On the spur of the moment she decides to join an online dating site, ‘MatchULike’, just for companionship. Amongst the peculiar people she meets is Peter; shy, and conscious that his ‘gentleman’s’ operation has rendered him an unattractive prospect in the marriage stakes. Lyn makes a friend of Peter, but when Neil gets to hear about the friendship he realises too late that there is more to a relationship than just sex, and he suddenly starts to appear back on the scene and wants to turn her life upside down all over again!

Finding Abel


Stephanie Hoffman McManus - 2018
    I knew the moment I claimed her first kiss that I wanted to own all of them right up until her last. I was going to make all our dreams come true. Instead, I broke a lot of promises and both our hearts along the road to fame. Now, a woman I don’t love wears my ring on her finger, and I don’t know if Abbi will ever forgive me for what I’ve done. Little by little, I gave my heart to Abel McCabe, and piece by broken piece he gave it back to me. Now, he wears the face of a man I hardly recognize, but his eyes still look at me like the boy I’ve known and loved all my life. I know I’m not supposed to. I know we can’t ever be what we were, and I know what we’ve become is killing us both. But I don’t know how to stop. Until the night I sit waiting for him, only to turn on my phone and see his engagement announcement plastered all over the internet, and a text message with two words. I’m sorry. He asks me to trust him. He begs me to forgive him, but I don’t know what to believe anymore. The Rebel Hearts series is a spin off of the Ever After series, but can be read alone
