We’ve come to the end of the fantastic book tour for THE MAN SHE KNEW! In case you missed any post, here are the highlights as well as the links to see the post in full:

Between the CoverzReview (5 stars!)

The Man She Knew was a charming and well-written story.  There were many twists and turns that formed a believable plot. There was a lot of action and romance to keep my interest piqued. This author really knows how to build up the story and keep your attention to the very end.  The characters were well developed and engaging. Loree Lough did a great job of bringing out several feelings throughout this story – heartache, laughter, love, and hope.

The Voluptuous Book DivaExcerpt

 Her lips touched his, softly, gently, slowly at first.

But only at first. Where he ended and she began, Ian couldn’t say. Did she realize that as her kisses slid from his mouths to his cheeks, from his forehead to his chin, she’d awakened every hope and dream he’d secreted away, that she’d roused every manly urge he thought had died long ago? It seemed she was reaching into his soul. How would she respond after reading years of unanswered love he’d written there?

The Pen and Muse Book ReviewsExcerpt

He couldn’t imagine how she’d intended it, because the only thing Ian could think of was an article he’d read in the Sunday Sun about how that the brutal truth was often hidden behind sarcastic humor. If that’s how she really felt…

Books,Dreams,LifeFun Facts

When an Autistic boy goes missing during a camping trip in the Allegheny Mountains, chaperone Maleah joins the search…with Ian and his SAR dog, Cash.

Triple A Book BlogReview

This book grabs your heart and straps it into a roller coaster. I didn’t want to put the book down, even after I finished it. And the end is so… perfectly suited to the rest of the book.

What is That Book AboutExcerpt

Concerned as he was about the condition of the people trapped up there, Ian made his way up, one cautious step at a time. Because if the staircase gave way before they even found them…

Romancing the Books and MoreCharacter Profile

Thanks to his aunt’s loving generosity, he worked his way up at her Baltimore bistro in historic Fells Point, from dishwasher to waiter, from manager to owner of the now-successful establishment. But no amount of hard work, he discovers, can blot Maleah’s final words from his wounded heart.

Pick a Genre AlreadyExcerpt

If the powers that be decided to give him one more chance, he’d make things right.

    Somehow, I’ll make things right…

Hot Choco and BooksDream Cast

In a perfect world, a made-for-TV or big screen movie would star Rodolfo Greco as Ian Sylvestry and Hayden Panettiere as Maleah Turner.

The Romance ReviewsInterview

[Inspiration for writing The Man She Knew] I’ve always believed in second chances, so when I hear stories about recidivism by ex-cons, it hurts my heart. “There but by the grace of God,” any of us might have committed a serious crime…and paid for it with time behind bars. But once that time is served, every former prisoner is entitled to prove that they’re changed men and women who can contribute to society. That is precisely what led me to make Ian Sylvestry a reformed man.

The Romance ReviewsReview (5 stars!)

The internal dialogue…greatly enhanced the story and strengthened my sympathy for both characters along with my desire for their HEA…This is a story about lost loves, second chances, forgiveness, and redemption and it’s lovely.

Don’t they both deserve a second chance?
The Man She Knew
Loree Lough
Series: By Way of the Lighthouse, Book 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Harlequin Heartwarming
Publication Date: June 1, 2017
Fourteen years ago, one reckless act cost Ian Sylvestry everything, including the girl he planned to marry. Since then, he has fought hard to turn his life around. Returning to his Baltimore town after serving a prison term was the first step. Winning back Maleah Turner’s trust is a far more daunting challenge.
From their first sparks-flying reunion, it’s obvious they still have powerful feelings for each other. In fact, they might be even stronger together now. But if their second chance is going to work, Maleah has to believe that Ian is a changed man. She really wants to believe…but she simply isn’t convinced.
“I love it! I like all characters in this book. I could not put it down until the end.”
– Terri, Goodreads Reviewer

About Loree Lough

Loree Lough

Once upon a time, Loree sang for her supper. That space reserved in pubs for “the piano lady?” Well, that’s where she sat, strumming her Yamaha in cities all over the U.S. and Canada. Now and then, she blows the dust from the old 6-string to croon a tune or two, but mostly, she writes. And with the release of the 1st book in her third series for Harlequin Heartwarming, “By Way of the Lighthouse,” she’ll have 110 books on the shelves. She feels blessed that, over the years, most of her stories have earned 4- and 5-star reviews, but what Loree is most proud of are the dozens “Readers’ Choice” awards she has won, because it’s the readers’ opinions she cares most about!
Loree and her husband and live in a Baltimore suburb and enjoy spending time at their cozy cabin in Pennsylvania’s Allegheny Mountains (where she has nearly perfected her “identify the critter tracks” skills). They have two lovely daughters and seven ‘grandorables,’ and because she believes in giving back, Loree donates a generous portion of her annual income to several worthwhile charities. (See the full list on the “Giving Back” page at http://www.loreelough.com.)
While you’re there, Loree hopes you’ll drop her a note, because she loves hearing from her readers, some of whom have become lifelong friends! (You can also interact with her at Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.)
