Excerpt from THEN THERE WAS YOU by Miranda Liasson

Welcome to Angel Falls, a small-town so delightful even enemies can't help falling in love in this "emotional, heartwarming romance you can't put down."

(Lori Wilde, New York Times bestselling author)


Angel Falls is the last place Sara Langdon wants to be. Her hometown may be charming, but it's also filled with memories of her "wedding-that-never-was." Yet Sara's grandmother needs her, and joining her dad at his medical practice gives Sara time to figure out what she wants for her future. But when her first patient turns out to be Colton Walker, the man who sabotaged her wedding, Sara starts to wonder if she'll ever be able to escape her past.

As police chief, Colton Walker is devoted to his small town, and he's equally determined to avoid its newest resident. He and Sara have always gotten along like oil and water, and since the bachelor party incident, he's her Enemy #1. But after sharing an unexpected--and unexpectedly hot--kiss, Colton starts to wonder if the woman he's always fighting with is the one he should be fighting for.

In the author's words . . .

I loved the chemistry between Colton and Sara! Doing this enemies-to-lovers book was so much fun. Colton is such an upstanding guy—but Sara doesn't want to have anything to do with the man she blames for ruining her wedding. He wants to stay far away from the goody-two-shoes doctor. These two have a lot to learn about each other and about their pasts. Having written all three books in this series, I must say I’ve come to love Sara's big crazy family. Hope you enjoy them too!

“I didn’t get you a pie. I made you a pie.”

Her eyes were dancing in the low light, and he could see the golden highlights in her hair. Forget the damn pie. He wanted to taste her.

Whoa there, Colton. Friends, friends, friends, he repeated to himself. What had happened to all that animosity between them? The desire to tease her, to make her blush? To keep her at a distance, which was what all that bickering had done. Now he found he did want to make her blush. But for a completely different reason.

“Better hurry and wish before it fizzles,” she said, gesturing to the candle, which really did seem to be on its way to flickering out.

Oh, he wished all right, while she did a speedy rendition of “Happy Birthday.” She couldn’t hold a tune to save her life but he loved it just the same. Then he blew out the candle.

As it sat there smoldering, a thin wisp of smoke curling elegantly into the wooden slats of the porch ceiling. Sara jumped up. “Do you like warm pie? I’m going to nuke some pieces and put ice cream on them, is that OK? I’ve been waiting for this all ni—”

Before he knew what he was doing he reached up for her arm, tugged her back down beside him, and planted his lips on hers. Then he curled his hand around her neck and pulled her in deeper.

Her lips were soft, and she tasted amazing, sweet like the pie, and sure enough, she was kissing him back, parting her lips, resting her hand lightly against his chest. Over his heart, where he was certain she could feel its wild rhythm as his entire body responded to the thunder of that kiss.
