Author: Holly J. Martin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Brilliant scientist Dr. Emma Blackstone is lured from her self-imposed isolation by the promise of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work with NASA – but as soon as she relocates to the Sunshine State, Emma finds herself studying her handsome new co-worker almost as intently as the cutting-edge genome project they’re working on together.
Dr. Theodore “Teddy” Johnson is the opposite of every nerdy cliche – a tattooed, Harley-riding genius who prefers worn jeans and work boots to a stuffy white coat. More than that, he’s the first man Emma’s ever met who understands what it was like growing up with a mind like hers.
For Teddy, genome sequencing is child’s play compared to unlocking the enigma of Emma’s heart. Layer by layer, he begins peeling back the barriers built up over a lifetime of isolation and anxiety – the result of Emma’s terrifying childhood growing up in a sinister ‘school for the gifted.’ However, just as Teddy begins to forge the first real connection of Emma’s life, the gut-wrenching past she thought she’d escaped suddenly comes back to haunt her.
Pursued by sinister shadows from her childhood, Emma and Teddy are forced to flee for their lives – escaping to Maine, and the beautiful splendor of Teddy’s family home in Harmony.
There, the brilliant Dr. Blackstone continues to make discoveries – only not the kind you’d uncover in a lab. Instead, Emma discovers just how quickly and deeply you can fall in love with both a person, and a place.
But if she’s ever going to have a future with Teddy Johnson – or embrace the peace and beauty of Harmony – Emma’s going to have to face her past first.
It’s just all the more terrifying to risk it all when – for the first time in Emma’s life – she’s actually got something to lose.

About the Author:
Holly J. Martin’s mother always told her she was in love with love. And guess what, she was right! After all, what is more exciting than a crush? When Holly isn’t writing steamy, crush-worthy romance novels, she can be found running (she has several marathons under her belt), reading steamy romances (of course), enjoying a glass of wine with her husband (always her favorite crush), or binging on Netflix.
