Search For Love Series, Book 3
Romantic Suspense E-Book Novella
Emma Henderson is a giver. She took care of her mother until she died, then continued to care for her younger sister, Paige, even after she married and had daughter Becky. And she owns and runs a gift basket shop. A year ago, an accident took her husband, and three months ago, Paige, now twenty, disappeared on the way to San Francisco. Her car was found abandoned on the side of the highway. The police have been unable to find Paige, so Emma takes part in a TV interview promoted by media producer Linc Granger. Even while nearly overwhelmed by life, Emma can't help feeling attracted to Linc.
Linc Granger is handsome, highly successful, and distrustful of women, but he's strangely moved by Emma Henderson and charmed by four-year-old Becky. He arranges a meeting between Emma and his friends, Gillian Bradley and Jake Donovan. Together, these two friends trace missing persons; Gillian has a "gift" that lets her make connections, and Jake is a former cop who deals with the mundane aspects of a search.
Popular Harlequin/Silhouette romance author Karen Rose smith adds a bit of a mystery to contemporary romance in ALWAYS DEVOTED, but she continues to delve into the hearts of her characters and includes her trademark heartwarming passages between an alpha man and a child.
ALWAYS DEVOTED is a brand new story that carries on the Search For Love series following earlier works now turned into E-books under the titles NATHAN'S VOW and JAKE'S BRIDE (excerpts are added after the novella). All three are available on line. For more info, you can check out Ms. Smith's website at (...).

Media giant Linc Granger gets Emma air time to make a plea for information involving Paige. Afterward, Linc who likes the mother and four year old daughter introduces her to his friends Jake Donovan (see Jake's Bride) and Gillian Bradley (see Nathan's Vow) who find missing people as the latter has a special paranormal "gift". As Linc and Emma are attracted to one another, each struggles with their feelings as she feels guilt and he os drowning especially with the added pressure of Becky insisting he is her buddy.
The third Search for Love drama is somewhat different in tone than Karen Rose Smith's insightful Silhouette tales but contains the author's renowned deep look at people struggling with relationships. The mystery of what happened to Paige is cleverly handled while the touch of the paranormal enhances the exciting story line. However, it is the changing relationship between the cynic, the mom, and the child who affirm that Ms. Smith is one of the best contemporary family drama authors.
Emma Henderson is a widow with a four year old daughter. Her sister Paige, whom she raised after her mother died, has been missing for three months. Emma is beside herself with worry and has agreed to appear on a television show about the disappearence. Linc Granger is the producer. He is attracted to Emma and wants to help her. Emma also feels the attraction but already has too much on her plate to deal with.
The story moves along at a good clip. The mystery is compelling. Her sister disappeared while she was driving to San Francisco. Her car was found abandoned along the side of the road. Paige is a twenty year old college student. There is a hint of the paranormal in that Emma consults a psychic, but she doesn't get clear visions, only sensations, and then her partner, a PI, works from there. There was a love scene, not behind closed doors, but also not ultra detailed.
I liked all the characters. Although the story is a novella, it was well-drawn. Nothing seemed rushed or stuck in or unreasonable. I will be looking for more of the books in this series. If you like romantic suspense, I think you'll love this book. I know I did.
