Childhood crush... Lifetime love... Never letting go...

Elaina Morrison has loved Neil McManus her whole life. She doesn’t remember a time when she didn’t love him. Through heartbreaking tragedy and years of separation, her love holds true…until life stomps all over her heart, shattering her perfect dream, teaching her how hard it is to let go.

Real life doesn’t have anything on romantic dreams though, as these two have learned repeatedly. It sucks big time, leaving painful scars in its wake.

But Neil isn’t giving up. He’s endured years of longing and sacrifice to wait for her. Always a soldier, he knows his way around a battlefield, and winning Elaina is no different. So that’s precisely what Neil is going to do. He'll go in fighting, and make Elaina see what he already knows.  That she will forever be his Cherry Girl…

Blackstone Affair spin-off / Standalone / Full Length

My Review

This is an erotic, poignant and beautiful love story.  It is also a story of patience for the truest of loves and knowing what you want out of life.  Once again Raine Miller takes us on an absorbing journey of love lost and found.  As far as I am concerned, this is the master author's ultimate love story.

Neil has waited for Elaina for so long.  When they first met, he was seventeen and she was ten.  First he had to wait for her to grow-up.  Then, he waited for her to be free of the casual boyfriends she kept entangling herself with.  He waited for so long for his Cherry Girl... and then, when he thought their future was secure, their lives were irrevocably altered.  He is not your typical alpha male.  He is strong and forceful, but at the same time, he is tender, considerate and respectful.

Elaina always knew he was the man for her.  She never thought he would actually come to love her.  When two lovers feel this deeply for each other, how is it possible for them not to be together?  Fate or life, whatever you believe in, has a way to place obstacles along the way.  How mature you are and how you choose to deal with these situations will alter the path of love.

I was spellbound by this story.   As I read it, it had the resonance of a love with all the emotional ups and downs of real life.  The characters are so real and endearing, you will remember them with the fondness of old friends.   I can hardly wait for the next installment in the Blackstone Affair series - Rare and Precious Things - due to be released February 28, 2014.

About the Author

A New York Times bestselling author who has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop, because now she writes them too. Granted, Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion. Ever! Writing books pretty much fills her days now and she's always busy. Raine has a prince of a husband, and two brilliant sons to pull her back into the real world if the writing takes her too far away. She loves to hear from readers and to chat about the characters in her books. You can connect with her on Facebook or visit her blog at to find out what she's working on now.
