Release day: New Year’s Promise
Today is the official release of New Year’s Promise by Anna Clifton (ebook, Escape Publishing). Here’s the blurb:
When Business Development Executive Ellie Halligan is offered the job of a lifetime in Paris, it seems her chance to live a fairytale adventure has finally arrived. Her only hurdle is convincing legal eagle Justin Murphy — her boss and friend since childhood — to wave his boss’s wand and waive her four-week resignation period so that she can start her adventure by Christmas.
But Justin proves to be a demanding fairy godmother. He’ll let her go early, but not unless she spends time with him over the festive season up until New Year.
Ellie doesn’t know what to do. Is Justin finally looking at her romantically after all these years, or are far more threatening dynamics at play? Justin has a secret, and he seems to want to pull her back into a past she’d rather forget. But delving into that old pain might be the only way to move forward — and for Justin to finally be free.
Will doing this for Justin become Ellie’s final gift of love as she loses him forever?
Anna dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
This is the third release in my Murphy’s Law series about a group of legal eagles and their families, both real and urban. Justin Murphy is the guy to whom everything comes too easily, except the one thing he can never have. Ellie Halligan is the girl he’s known forever, but must keep at arms length if she’s to have the future he believes she deserves. New Year’s Promise is an emotional journey of loss and redemption, abandonment and regained hope. Most of all, it’s about allowing ourselves to be loved for who we are, rather than for the promise of who we might once have become.
