Book Description

His tools, his rules…

Blackwater, Book 2

Looking at Vance Jennings now, no one would guess that the tough-as-nails building contractor once suffered a broken heart. Twelve years has blunted the pain of the breakup with his high school sweetheart, but not the memory. Until she shows up on his doorstep asking for a second chance.

One look at the sexy redhead, and Vance adds a foot or two to his rock-solid emotional barriers. No way is he letting her back into his life. But he’ll be happy to let her close enough to sample her delectable body.

Shayla Riggs is no longer the vulnerable teenager who was forced to give up her first and only love. She’s older, wiser, and determined to make things right. Except the changes in Vance throw her for a loop. He’s definitely not the sweet boy she remembers. In fact, the grown-up version lights her up hotter than a firecracker.

It takes only a kiss, a caress, to bring back the explosive passion they once shared. But if Shayla can’t find a way to break through the bitter walls around his heart, it just might destroy them both. Again.

Warning: This story contains a stubborn woman intent on seduction and an alpha male with some naughty ideas of payback. Let the fireworks begin!

And...Ms. Rainey has done it again with Vance's Rules -- Blackwater and the Jennings brothers are proving to be one of my favorite series. Full of not just steamy sexy scenes, but also emotions and full character depth. I love reunion type romance stories, and this one did not disappoint. I'm hooked! I loved Vance's resistance and Shay's persistence. Now, when is book three coming out? I'm seriously hoping River is the star of the next one. He intrigues me.

this book is a really good love story about loosing your way but being able to come back to your one true love. In this book Vance and Shayla were in love years before but she writes him a dear John letter and then is gone for the next 12 years. Shayla comes back to the place that she has always loved and back to explain to her true love why that letter was written and what actually means for their possible future. This is a book that I would definitely recommend

I don't know. Couldn't really get into it. I guess some parts of it were ok. I'd recommend another book over it though.

More About the Author

I met my very own prince charming, married him and have two delightful daughters. Raised as the only girl with three overprotective older brothers, I am constantly amazed at the wild things that a pair of sisters will do and say. I live in a quiet little town in the country where, on occasion, I slip out of this world and into the captivating world of my imagination.

When I first discovered romance books, I was awed that such a fabulous world existed. I've always loved to read, but up until I'd picked up a Madeline Baker historical romance I'd been reading only the things handed down by my mom. Talented authors such as Martha Grimes, Agatha Christie and even a few Mary Higgins Clarks.

So, imagine my surprise when I read about Native Americans meeting and falling in love with white women of the west and living happily ever after. I knew I'd finally found the genre for me!

Still, it wasn't until quite a few years later that I tried my hand at actually writing a romance. I now have over thirty titles to my name. My books can be found in Target, Barnes and Noble and other popular retailers. Canada's largest newspaper, The Toronto Star, recommends my books as an alternative read to Fifty Shades of Grey.
