Book alert – Reissue – No Longer mine © Shiloh Walker

One of my favourite book by Shiloh Walker is making a re-emergence on the 27th of this month.  I know there will be a rush to get LOVER MINE – J.R.Ward, but not me – this will be the book to hold my interest on that day.

For fans of Walkers works, you will know that she doesn’t hold her punches when it comes to the emotional stuff and NO LONGER MINE will drag you there and back, with not only some well written characters, but a plotline that I thought Walker took and made her own.

From Her blog.

No Longer Mine has been revised-a lot.  Re-edited.  A lot.  I think it’s a better, cleaner read this time around.  And pretty, pretty new cover… *G*

I thought it was pretty near perfect as it was before – but I am thrilled it’s being re-released and with re-edited stuff, how can I lose.

“No Longer Mine” by Shiloh Walker

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Publication Date: April 27, 2010
Cover art by Kanaxa

One woman, one man, and a love that won’t let either of them go.

Born on the wrong side of the tracks and dealt a fair share of hardship, Nikki Kline never gives up a fight. Even when her reason to keep going is ripped from her, Nikki tries desperately to hang on. But when the man who broke Nikki’s heart comes back into her life she doesn’t know how much she can take. Especially since that man seems determined to win back her damaged heart.

Wade Lightfoot is a man who knows he’s made more mistakes than most. As much as he would like to repair the damage he’s done to those he loves, Wade also knows there is no going back. But when he sets out to put things right the last thing he’s prepared to find out is that he had a son. A son he’ll never get the chance to meet.

When the truth is out and all the old wounds are bared, it seems impossible that Nikki and Wade will find their way back to each other. But true love is an undeniable force that even past hurts can’t destroy.

This book has been previously published and has been revised from its original release.

Warning: This title contains heartbreaking tragedy, lies and deception, and a scorching passion that nothing can deny.

 

As she went to turn the cart around she promptly ran into somebody else’s.

“Damn it,” she muttered, but her voice was lost under the sound of baskets crashing together and groceries tumbling to the floor.

A sheepish smile crossed her face and she said, “Sorry about that.” She would hit somebody whose cart was beyond full. Kneeling, she picked up a carton of cookies and Donald Duck orange juice. She placed them in the basket before stepping away.

The guy had knelt in front of a dark child of four or five, his face hidden as he scooped up items from the floor.

“No problem,” he said, although his voice belied his words. He sounded a tad—okay, he sounded a lot irritated.

Nikki was about to make a quick getaway, but then he stood up. And revealed his face.

A very familiar face, one that haunted her dreams on a regular basis. His hair was shorter, cut at his nape, and his face had thinned out just a bit, the dimples at the corners of his mouth now slashes in his lean cheeks. But the eyes were the same, deep bottomless pools of brown velvet

“Wade,” she whispered. Her eyes, stricken, then landed on the child’s face. A little girl, a little mirror of her father.

And of Nikki’s son. She wore a red T-shirt decorated on the front with a sketch of a bright-eyed puppy. A baseball cap in that same candy-apple red sat on top of thick black hair that fell razor-straight to her tiny shoulders. She held a stuffed cocker spaniel, a mirror image of the way Jason had carried his precious Mouse.

A knife slowly imbedded itself in Nikki’s heart, started to twist.

For a moment his face was blank, and then his eyes narrowed. She was unable to move as he slowly reached up and tugged her sunglasses off.

“Nikki,” he breathed, his eyes lighting as though from within.

He took a step closer, and brushed her cheek with the back of his hand.

That gentle touch shattered her like glass.

You're right EH. I don't know how she can improve on perfection. It was my first Shiloh book & it got me hooked.

How could I have missed this book? I remember reading a Shiloh Walker years ago and I enjoyed it!

Think I may have to track this down!

Thanks for sharing it.
