• Book Trailer •
In the explosive debut of Stacey Lynn’s irresistible Fireside series, a pair of estranged lovers are reunited by dangerous loyalties—and intoxicating desire.
Tyson Blackwell never saw it coming when his Mafia princess girlfriend dumped him and disappeared at the age of eighteen. He never forgot her, either, even after what happened next: the killing of his father, a Detroit PD officer, at the hands of one of her father’s men. Tyson swore revenge, and now, ten years later, the kid who dreamed of a pro football career is a hard-nosed FBI agent, back in town to take down the Galecki crime family once and for all. But Tyson’s mission gets complicated fast—because going undercover means seducing the only woman he’s ever loved.
Gabriella “Blue” Galecki has been in hiding for a decade. She finally comes home to spend time with her terminally ill mother, only to receive a blast from the past when she runs into Tyson. His brooding eyes and electrifying touch still send chills down her spine. But as heir to the family empire, Blue has been promised to another. Caught in a web of deception, she is tempted to pull the trigger on the boldest risk she’s ever taken: trusting Tyson with her life, her body, and her heart.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Pre-Order from Amazon
A warm home for broken hearts, the Fireside Grill serves up hope and healing in equal measure. Stacey Lynn’s sensual, deeply emotional series heats up as a jaded restaurateur falls hard for a woman who’s hiding from a damaged past.
Declan James lost his last ounce of trust the day his wife walked out the door, leaving him to save the restaurant they built together. Throwing himself into his work, Declan swears off women—or at least, women who expect him to stick around in the morning. But when he discovers a skittish beauty scrounging through the Fireside’s trash to feed her dog, Declan offers her a job and a place to rest her head. There’s just something about her that awakens his protective side. And soon, not even that mangy mutt can stop Declan from caring for her.
After one too many trips to the ER, Trina Wilson finally gathered the courage to leave her husband, taking only her car and hyperactive boxer. Unfortunately, life on the run proves harder than she anticipated—until Declan takes a leap of faith on her. But even as Trina starts to see beyond his gruff exterior, she can’t relax, even for a moment. Not with her husband still tracking her down. What Trina doesn’t know is that in Declan, she has a powerful ally—and, if she would only follow her heart, a devoted lover.
Stacey Lynn is a simple girl, raised most of her life in the MidWest. Perhaps it was the long, frigid winters that left her so bored she had nothing to do but spend time reading every book she could get her hands on from John Grisham and Danielle Steel to Ann M. Martin and CS Lewis. As an avid reader, she began penning poems and short stories long before she reached high school and her love of the written word has never diminished.
Now, as a wife and mother to four children, she finds solace from the craziness of her life by creating steamy, sexy stories that generally tug at your emotions. What began as a hobby and a way to survive a Minnesota winter three years ago and the dream of publishing her first book, has now turned into an unending passion.
I devoured this second chance romance and highly recommend His to Love. The book is filled with intriguing characters, a passionate affair and a highly suspenseful plot – thus making it an awesome reading experience. It is a fabulous start to a new series!!
Tyson and Blue were high school sweethearts but out of no where, Blue just disappeared from Tyson’s life and for ten years he had no idea what had become of her. So when Tyson is ordered to renew his connection with her for a work assignment, not only is he blown away by seeing her again – he has no idea how to find the answers he’s needed for years without losing himself to his feelings and memories.
And he isn’t the only one struggling with the past and present colliding. Now that Blue has finally returned home (because her mom is ill), she has to work to not be the submissive person she was raised to be especially since she realizes her father is scheming and projecting what he thinks is best for her. However, all that her father has planned for her conflicts with everything she wants for herself.
Because Blue wants the future with Tyson that was once denied from her.
Unable to deny all that they feel for one another, Tyson and Blue reconnect. They struggle moving forward though – nothing about them coming together is easy. Emotional roadblocks and secrets make their journey toward happily ever after difficult. But I found myself rooting them on – I wanted to see them get past all that was holding them back.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. The plot wraps up quickly and wasn’t quite as dramatic as I had been expecting but it’s still an excellent romantic suspense book. I liked both Tyson and Blue and I would happily move forward with this series. I can’t wait to see what comes next!!
