First Love, Book 2 of the Angelfire Trilogy by Karen Wiesner
Published by Hard Shell Word Factory
During a traumatic childhood that left her feeling worthless and unloved, Darlene Foxx had only one light--Jason Radcliffe, her best friend and eventually her lover. Until she found out that she wasn't his only lover, Darlene dreamed of the day they'd escape and be together forever . At 17, she left home alone and forced herself to overcompensate for her upbringing by never trusting anyone, especially Jace.
Jason Radcliffe is a vagabond sans the dark aura. His intelligence, sweetness and charm make it easy for him to get jobs and women. Although Darlene has never allowed Jace to know of her overwhelming, uncontrollable love for him, she falls for him each time he drops back into her life without warning--and always at her most desperate hour.
Darlene has been praying for a knight to come to her rescue. Somehow it makes sense when Jace comes just in the nick of time again. But this time everything has changed. Darlene is vulnerable and in desperate need of a friend to share her joy, her fear and past secrets that have haunted her. Maybe this time she can even share her heart with her first love, forever.
