About the Author
Cheryl Norman grew up in Louisville, KY where she wrote her first mystery at the age of 13. She earned a BA in English at Georgia State University in Atlanta. After a career in the telecommunications industry, she returned to fiction writing and won the 2003 EPPIE award for her contemporary romance, Last Resort. Her debut with Medallion Press, Restore My Heart, led to a mention in Publisher's Weekly as one of ten new romance authors to watch. Running Scared, a romantic suspense set in Jacksonville, Florida, and Washington D.C., received a Perfect 10 from Romance Reviews Today. Reviewer Harriet Klausner calls her writing “Mindful of Linda Howard…” Her latest romantic suspense novel for Medallion is Reclaim My Life, and Cheryl has two novellas in the anthology Romance on Route 66. Rebuild My World, the sequel to Reclaim My Life, is her first book pub-lished by Turquoise Morning Press. Cheryl has combined her passion for writing and healthful cooking by publishing two cookbooks (both finalists in the EPPIEs in the self-help category). Currently she is writing a cookbook for patients with suppressed immune systems, a subject she knows well after recent chemotherapy treatment. Cheryl works with other breast cancer survivors to raise awareness about early detection and treatment of the disease. She also helps writers with grammar via her Grammar Cop blog, newsletter articles, and workshops. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Taylor returns to Drake Springs a virtual recluse afraid to leave her father's house. Her attacker got away, and for all she knows, he may be lurking around the next tree. When her sheriff brother goes on vacation, he asks his chief deputy to look in on his sister, make sue she is safe.
Adam Gillespie doesn't relish the idea. He has pegged Taylor as a selfish rich bitch, furthermore, he hates her father, the man who ruined his family. Still, he is a lawman and sworn to do his duty, even when it means looking out for Harold Drake's frightened daughter, never mind that Adam is running for sheriff against her brother Wil.
The attraction is instant, and unwanted. The Drakes ruined his family and may have been responsible for his mother's death, but Taylor wants to put the thirty-year-old feud back in the past where it belongs. Unfortunately, Adam can't do that.
When a series of events again threaten Taylor's life, Adam realizes he must do everything he can to help her...and somehow work through the attraction that sizzles between them. Just when he may be reaching a breakthrough with his emotions, a bombshell drops into his lap that assures he can never love a Drake.
Ms. Norman is a gifted storyteller. I loved Rebuild My World and eagerly turned the pages, excited to see what event would next happen to keep this story moving. Not only is it well plotted, but the characterizations draw you into the lives of these people. Ms. Norman tell a compelling tale that keeps you guessing. I loved the ending, and yet hated to see it end because I became so involved with Adam and Taylor. Even the secondary characters are finely drawn. This book's a keeper.
and you care about them. Why have these two families been taught to hate each other? Dirty dark secrets
lie hidden. Do you know how and why to forgive someone? Along with the characters, you might learn a good
lesson here. This may be my favorite book of all time.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
Pictures are her life. A day without her camera seems surreal. Yet it has been months now she has not taken a picture all because of a stupid man that attacked her in her apartment. For months Taylor Drake has been trying to get her life back together and still nothing has changed. Just when she thinks she could have some peace in her life at home in enters Sheriff Adam Gillespie.
I loved that these two share a family hatred yet they are not going to succumb to the bitter feud. I felt for Taylor with this illness yet applauded her when she finally took the first step. Now Adam seems like a great and there were times when I wanted to hate him. The feud is one that is heartbreaking to see how it started yet in a way it makes sense in the book. Cheryl Norman started a series in a great way with Adam and the secondary characters from both families shows us a glimpse of whats to come. All in all it was a good book and definitely a series going to keep up with.
I felt the person hunting Taylor could have been fleshed out a little more so I understood better why it was so important for him to get to her, but that is really my only criticism for the story. There was a lot going on here and I felt the author did a good job telling a compelling tale. I would recommend it to anyone who likes romance and family drama. There are no explicit sex scenes, or bad language.
