BUILD US YOUR IDEAL STORY with Louise Foster
$5 Sigh worthy male leads
Brock is an ex SAS soldier and has experienced heartache on his tours of Afghanistan. He may have a new life as police officer in the small country town of Tumble Creek, that doesn’t mean he’s let go of his past life. He’s a big, strong, musclebound man, it appears he has no weaknesses, until he meets Sofie. Brock is a secondary character in the first book, Home Truths; and although it goes against everything he feels inside, the last scene of them together shows him taking control of a situation. Brock believes he’s protecting Sofie from himself, and walks away from her. In their story, Tumble Creek, protection and control is turned on its head. He believes there could be someone out there wanting to harm Sofie, and in order to keep her safe, Brock insists she stay with him; and he will not let her back out.
$3 Conflict that forces personal growth
Sofie has trust issues, and with her ex showing up in town it becomes even more intense. Brock leaves town with barely legible texts; he’s blown her trust. Believing she’s protecting her daughter and herself, Sofie takes matters in her own hands and has compromised her safety, and Brock’s position as the local police officer. He was left out of loop and had no control of her situation. He could have saved her worry and angst. How was he going to keep her safe and out of court if she didn’t tell him what was going on? Their heated argument finally exposes both their flaws; her trust in him, and his lack of proper communication.
$2 A take charge hero
Brock was trained to take charge, to keep a keen eye, and be able to read people. It took a while for the small town to come to grips with a man like that, but his unfailing correctness and fair-go won their hearts. He’s the first man Sofie meets in Tumble Creek and he left her weak at the knees. But she didn’t know when he met Sofie, he wanted, and needed her in his life. And in the sequel, Tumble Creek, he takes charge to keep her safe, but of course it was more than that. It may have been a rocky journey, but he wanted her close, in his car, in his home, and finally in his bed.
Brock, in control:
Brock dipped his head and stared unseeing at his shoes, shoulders shaking in a silent chuckle. He moved his head to the side and captured her eyes with his. “Sofe,” his deep voice drawled, “had I kissed you, you wouldn’t have missed it.”
“Ooh.” She did a little uppity head-wobble. “What makes you so special?”
His gaze deepened with an intensity that made her girl parts quiver. Then he rocked her world when he said, “Without a doubt, you do.”
Release date: April 25th
In the sequel to Home Truths, Louise Forster returns to the sleepy country town of Tumble Creek with the story of a cop, a teacher and a mystery that will bring them together—or tear them apart.
Art teacher and occasional life model Sofie Dove wants to know what’s up with Brock Stewart. Everything about the ex SAS soldier turned police officer seems to scream passion—and it’s all for her—but he just won’t express it. All she knows is that he has a past that still keeps him up some nights.
After a semi-trailer crashes through Sofie’s house and the driver disappears into thin air, Brock insists he’s the only one who can keep her safe—but can he, when they can’t seem to trust each other?
While Sofie works on figuring out why this man keeps giving her mixed messages, Brock is determined to find out who’s out to get her—as they both find out why falling in love is a bit like being hit by a truck.
