AFTER YOU: A SAPPHIRE FALLS NOVEL BY ERIN NICHOLAS
Release Date: July 21, 2017
~ The next great love story from Sapphire Falls ~
Only one thing has not gone according to Kyle Ames’s grand life plan.
She was his first love, the woman he planned to marry, the one that got away—all that romantic crap.
Two years ago, Hannah broke his heart. Which has been, well, not exactly fine, but he’s handling it because he doesn’t have to see her every day. In fact, Kyle had planned to keep up with the not-seeing-Hannah thing for at least a couple more years. Or a couple more decades. Or forever. But now she’s back in town to help her grandmother, Kyle’s patient and one of his favorite people, recover from hip surgery.
It’s only for six weeks. Surely Hannah can survive living in her hometown and helping her grandmother for six short weeks. If she doesn’t leave the house more than necessary. And puts on a show of being the same girl everyone remembers. And absolutely avoids Kyle Ames.
But that strategy evaporates the moment she sees Kyle again. And then things get worse—way worse. Kyle plans to also put on a show. To make Hannah’s grandmother happy, he’ll pretend he’s completely forgiven Hannah and wants her back. He doesn’t. But he and Hannah are the only ones who know that. And the pretend seduction quickly starts feeling far too real…and Hannah’s having a hard time remembering that she’s supposed to be resisting the whole thing.
And then there’s the not-so-tiny complication of falling in love with Kyle all over again. And the fact that he’s falling for her too. And that they’re both realizing maybe this time they’re doing it right.

About the Author
I've been reading romance since my mom first let me into her book cupboard when I was about fourteen. LaVyrle Spencer, Julie Garwood, Debbie Macomber... they took my 'happily ever after' ideas from animated princesses to real people in the real world.
I've been writing romance almost as long. Many a family car trip was spent with my head bent over a spiral notebook in the back seat. I'll confess that my very first attempts at fiction were fantasy and paranormals, influenced by my father's love of the Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and the original Alice in Wonderland. If Harry Potter had been around, I'm sure he would have been on the bedtime story shelf as well.
But it wasn't long until I started writing about true love and that's where I've been ever since.
I'm so thrilled to be able to share these stories with you! I hope that they make you smile, sigh, maybe even choke up a little. Most of all, I hope that they help you believe in magical things like first kisses, the spark of passion, and the power of true love.
