Pippa Sanders’ life is filled with songs of leaving, longing and loneliness. Since the death of her husband, her children have been her world. She’ll do anything to protect them, including encasing her heart in ice until they’re college age. She’s made a practice of shying away from any relationship that could break her heart when it ends. And it’s worked so far.
Clay Mathers has made a temporary move to Granite Pointe, Massachusetts to help with his mother’s Christmas tree farm while she recovers from a stroke. Although his long-range plans don’t include staying in the small town, a little female companionship during his short residency would be welcome. While on duty as sentry against protestors at a military funeral, he finds Pippa visiting her husband’s grave, and begins a campaign to make her into a friend–with benefits.
What starts as a simple affair evolves to something more, something that changes the soundtracks of both their lives…the beating of two hearts in harmony. CONTENT WARNING: Contains strong language, hot sex and a spicy hero.
About the Author
Gemma’s favorite desk accessories for many years were a circular wooden token, better known as a ’round tuit,’ and a slip of paper from a fortune cookie proclaiming her a lover of words; some day she’d write a book. All it took was a transfer to the United Kingdom, the lovely English springtime, and a huge dose of homesickness to write her first novel. Once it was completed and sent off with a kiss, even the rejections addressed to ‘Dear Author’ were gratifying. After returning to America, she spent a number of years as a copywriter, dedicating her skills to making insurance and the agents who sell them sound sexy. Eventually, her full-time job as a writer interfered with her desire to be a writer full-time and she left the world of financial products behind to pursue an avocation as a romance author. Her gamble paid off when she was a 2012 Finalist in the prestigious Golden Pen contest for Romantic Suspense and she received contracts for her first and second book.

Hearts in Harmony hooked me right off the bat with the mention of the Honor Guard. Pippa and Clay become absolutely mesmerizing.
Pippa is a pretty tough cookie who has dealt with the tragedy of her past as best she could, but now she is realizing that maybe she actually hasn’t dealt with the past at all and that maybe it is time to.
Clay is helping his mother out for a time and then hitting the road back to his normal life, which doesn’t include a steady woman, but Pippa and her darling twins just might change all of that for him, as he falls deeper and deeper in love with Pippa.
And then evil strikes and Pippa is made a pawn in an insane man’s scheme. Pippa, however, shows us yet again what a tough cookie she is when she ultimately does the right thing and devises her own plan to turn the tables on the insanity.
About 2 chapters into this book I realized this was actually book 2 of a series. I HATE WHEN I DO THAT. But there was not enough time for me to go back and read the first book first, so I kept going and I have to say that even though it is book 2 of a series, nothing was lost to me. I didn’t feel like I was missing out because I hadn’t read the first book.
I will tell you though now that I have read the second book I will be going back for the first one. Gemma Brocato had just made a new fan!
