From debut author S.H. Pratt comes Always my Love, a romantic novel that will enrapture readers with an odd pair who meet each other by happenstance. Searching for a temporary reprieve after her life becomes inharmonious, writer/gamer Liviann Walsh turns to her cousin and best friend. What begins as a transitory retreat however turns out to be an eventful juncture in her life as she opens her heart and life to a man – an easy feat if only she did not need to dig up and expose her painful past.    

Liviann Walsh was odd. She admitted it freely and openly. She worked odd hours, had an odd job, and enjoyed odd hobbies. When life in Northern California turns sour, Livi, unable to turn to her parents as their relationship is rancorous and strained, turns to the only constant source of comfort and home she’s ever known: her cousin and best friend, Ryan in Olympia, Washington.

Tristan McDermott, drama professor and rock hound, thrilled with a geode found while hiking, stops by his friend Ryan’s house to show it off. As soon as his eyes land on Ryan’s diminutive cousin, he is lost. She is reticent and wary, beautiful and interesting. And it is all Tristan can do to convince Livi to date him to … to let him into her life.

Before long, Tristan begins to infiltrate Livi’s defenses and heart. Drawn inexplicably to Tristan, Livi finds herself daring to open up to him. When asked to sell the rights to one of her books, Livi bravely asks Tristan to write the screenplay. He agrees, realizing she is offering her trust as well.

When a stalker threatens to destroy their fragile home and burgeoning love, Tristan and Livi become aware of the shift in their situation both publicly and personally. Faced with this reality, can Livi confront her long-ingrained fears and her parents, and is Tristan’s love strong enough to protect them both? The answers readers can find out in Always my Love, a riveting love story about learning to trust and communicate while accepting the personal and public challenges life inescapably throws.
