Hope Smoulders: A Hope Novella 0.5

Hope Smoulders is the novella introducing the sexy, heartwarming Hope series from Jaci Burton, New York Times bestselling author of the Play-By-Play series. Perfect for fans of Bella Andre, Jill Shalvis and Nora Roberts.

Welcome to Hope, Oklahoma. The small town that’s sure to warm your heart. Full of big hearts, fiery passion and love everlasting…


Jane Kline is a struggling divorcee and single mother with a social life on hold. Not only does Jane not have the time to date anyone, she’s not even going to consider making herself vulnerable to another man after being deserted by her husband. That’s why Will Griffin, her ex’s former best friend, takes her totally by surprise. What would such a hot and sexy wild card see in a harried mother juggling two kids and two jobs? For starters, everything Jane no longer sees in herself.

As she dares to take the flirtation to the next step, Jane finds herself back where she never wanted to be – falling for another man. Now it’s up to Will to convince Jane that she has everything he wants in a woman, and that the second time around can be the best time of all.

For more romance to warm your heart, check out the rest of the Hope series continuing with Hope Flames, or look for Jaci’s sexy sports romance series, Play-By-Play, beginning with The Perfect Play.
