American heiress Amelia Hathaway needs to start anew.
Her husband cheated on her, and when everything she wanted in life slipped through her fingers, she fell apart. When she did, she took another heart wrenching hit as she lost the respect of her children.
When her ex took her family from California to live in the small town of Magdalene in Maine, Amelia decided it was time to sort herself out. In order to do that and win her children back, she moves to Cliff Blue, an architectural masterpiece on the rocky coast of Magdalene.
Her boxes aren’t even unpacked when she meets Mickey Donovan, a man who lives across the street, a man so beautiful Amelia takes one look at Mickey and knows she wants everything from him.
The problem is, she finds out swiftly that he’s friendly, he’s kind, but he doesn’t want everything back.
Amelia struggles to right past wrongs in her life at the same time find out who she wants to be. She also struggles with her attraction to the handsome firefighter who lives across the street.
But Amelia will face a surprise when her friendly neighbor becomes not-so-friendly. As Amelia and Mickey go head to head, Amelia must focus on winning back the hearts of her children.
She soon discovers she also must focus on winning the heart of a handsome firefighter who understands down to his soul the beautiful heiress who lives across the street is used to a life he cannot provide.
Amelia has come to Magdalene to get a second chance. She’s picking up the pieces of her shattered family and is going to do everything possible to prove her unconditional love to her children. And the first step is making a house called “Cliff Blue” a real home.
The road to forgiveness is long and hard but she’s no longer the spiteful ex-wife looking for revenge. Everyday it gets a little better and with the help of her incredibly hot neighbour and his kids, she finds that sometimes all you need is right in front of you.
“I had to make a home.
Mickey Donovan has a gentle soul and a smoking hard body. He knows exactly what it’s like to be betrayed by someone that you love and he’s kept it together for the sake of his children. So he’s a little skeptical when the new owner of “Cliff Blue” moves in next door.
But she’s so much more than meets the eye. Underneath all of that beauty and sass is a woman who knows what’s really important. Can they put aside all of the mistakes of the past and take another chance on love or are they really just too different to even try?
“Life isn’t always beauty,” he returned.
In Soaring, Kristen Ashley proves without a doubt that there is no one that can write contemporary romance quite like she can! Her characters get right into your heart and soul and you can’t help but fall in love right along with them and swoon deliriously on every page.
Amelia Hathaway is my favourite heroine since Lauren in Sweet Dreams! She owns her mistakes and pushes through her pain by trying to make things a little better for other people. Not only was I in awe of her strength, I admired her ability to be fragile. Her journey is both heartbreaking and inspiring and Kristen delivers it to us flawlessly…

“Hello, Boston Stone,” I greeted because I had no idea what else to say.
About The Author -
Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
