About the Book

Tanner Harlow is a talented landscape designer, quietly building a name and a solid future when he finds himself needing to be the temporary guardian to his eleven-year-old half-sister. Tanner loves her, but can’t see himself as a father figure or imagine how he’s going to build his business during his busiest season with a child in tow until his newest client—his high school crush who still makes his heart pound—has a proposition that will help them both as long as Tanner can resist the tempting lure of the girl next door.

Elementary school teacher Francie Tate moved back to Marietta to be close to her ailing father. She plans to settle in and fix up her little bungalow before the school year starts but definitely needs help with the neglected yard. She’s shocked when the landscaper she hired turns out to be a classmate. Tanner used to be shy in school, but he isn’t the same kid anymore–he’s tall, sexy, and has the most striking brown eyes she’s ever seen. When Francie learns of Tanner’s need for child care, she impulsively offers to watch his half-sister for the summer in return for some landscaping and renovations around the house.

It seems like a win-win, but Francie didn’t bargain on falling in love.

Tanner’s Promise was a perfect summer read. Ms. Newell gave us the right balance of angst, tension, and hope. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a bit of romance in their women’s fiction.

About the Author
Kaylie Newell

The daughter of an English teacher and a freelance writer, I knew I wanted to be a novelist at the tender young age of twelve. Armed with a college ruled notebook and a ballpoint pen, I set out to write my first manuscript, but quit after seven pages to finish my math homework.

Several years and many short stories later, I decided to take another crack at it. My first book, A Death That Lingers released in November 2011 by Beachwalk Press. It was followed by Falling In Danger, Teaching Officer Lonesome and Taming Johnny, all contemporary romances featuring sexy cop heroes. I currently have a list of story ideas that nag me on a daily basis, most of which have a dash of suspense or paranormal to keep me on my toes.

I live at the base of the mountains in Southern Oregon with a very supportive (and handsome) husband, two adorable little girls, two slightly less adorable cats, and a mutt named Pedro. I spend my time reading, writing, cuddling my girls and dreaming of my next novel.
