Sometimes a single flame can ignite a love that lasts a lifetime.
Milo Phillips knows the meaning of pain. Suffering through the most intense physical agony of his life, he’s confined to a hospital bed to bear it alone. More than once, he wishes he’d died in the explosion that melted and mangled his skin. Darkness consumes him, snuffing all the joy in his life and leaving an empty hole in its place.
But one day, a flicker of light sneaks into his hospital room, driving away some of the hopelessness. For the first time in months, pain isn’t all he feels.
The flicker’s name is Sara Foster, his new nurse. Milo just hopes that Sara can see past his scars. Because underneath, his heart has begun beating again just for her.
The Candle Palace was such a wonderful suprise and great addition to The Jamison Valley Series. The Candle Palace might just be a novella, but this story certainly packs a punch. It will keep you on your toes and your eyes glued to the pages…
The Candle Palace follows the story of Milo and Sara. I really loved the way the author decided to tell Milo and Sara’s story. We start off in the present, Sara is surrounded by her girlfriends, one thing leads to another and Sara begins to tell the story of how she and Milo met….
From the moment Sara started to tell her story, I was hooked. Sara was an amazing nurse who loved her patients and worked hard at her job. When Milo came into her care, I’d like to think that it was an act of fate. Sara was drawn to Milo and had a hard time fighting the feelings she had for him. Soon, these two would form an unforgettable friendship that would lead to a love that lasts a lifetime.
Now, the road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one for these two. There were a lot of obsatcles along the way. But, these two had something special from the very beginning and I loved watching them come to terms with their feelings and accepting the things they have no control over.
The Candle Palace is a sweet little addition to The Jamison Valley Series. Sara is incredibly sweet and compassionate, and Milo is totally swoon worthy and doesn’t plan to let Sara go without a fight. Ugh! I just loved getting lost in these two and seeing them find their way. Their story kept my stomach full of butterflies and my eyes glued to the pages. Of course, The Candle Palace couldn’t just be all hearts and roses. It had its fair share of drama along the way. And I loved every single second of it.
