6 STAR REVIEW & INTERVIEW!!! GRAYSON'S VOW by MIA SHERIDAN






✯ ☆҉‿➹⁀☆҉☆BLURB✯ ☆҉‿➹⁀☆҉☆


A standalone romance from the New York Times bestselling author of Archer's Voice. 

Kira Dallaire is desperate. 

Some challenges in life seem too hard to overcome. With little money, and even fewer options, the quick-witted and vibrant twenty-two-year-old needs to reinvent herself. Known for her generous heart and impulsive personality, she devises a survival plan, possibly her most outrageous idea yet. 

Grayson Hawthorn is losing hope. 

Some obstacles in life seem too hard to overcome. Betrayal definitely being one of them. With limited capital, and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard, a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail. That is until a young woman enters his office with an outlandish, unexpected proposition impossible to refuse. 

What begins as a temporary business arrangement, soon evolves into more as vivacious, spirited Kira challenges detached, arrogant Grayson to want more from life. To want more for himself. But as their wills clash and fiery passion ignites, they'll realize that sometimes the past creates walls too difficult to climb, and that lies and deception rarely precede a happily every after. 

As Kira and Grayson race toward their destiny, they will discover that some vows are meant to be broken, and others are worth risking everything for . . . even your very own heart. 

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY LIBRA. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18

You all know by now that Mia Sheridan is one of my Top Shelf, go to authors. And you all know why;                        her writing is graceful and effortless, and her stories never fail to capture my heart.
Grayson's Vow is a gorgeously imagined, and eloquently crafted story with touches of cheekiness, well timed humor, and of course the incomparable quality of steamy love that only Mia can deliver.
Kira Dallaire is compelling, feisty & lovable and Grayson Hawthorn has the unique stamp of Mia Sheridan male hotness.
Both Kira and Grayson find themselves in hopeless situations, trying in vain, to overcome
the hardships imposed on them by their pitiless and uncaring fathers; and both have suffered their due as a result. The pain of rejection and abandonment being the common thread that ultimately intertwines their paths.
 Kira's serendipitous trip to the bank results in her hatching a plan, one that will attempt to end the tyrannical reign her father has on her life and will also offer Grayson the one thing he hasn't had for years...hope.
The thing she doesn't bargain on, however is the intense attraction she feels for Grayson..

"My God he was... breathtaking. He had the beautifully carved features of a knight in shining armor, with almost black hair a tad too long, making it curl over his collar. It was his lips that were truly devastating, though- full and sensual a way that made my eyes wander to them again and again. I squinted trying to take in every detail of his face, before my gaze traveled down his tall form. His body matched his beautifully dark masculinity- muscular and graceful, his shoulders broad and his waist narrow".

OK are you drooling yet? I mean the girl didn't stand a chance against that! 
The push and pull that occurs between Grayson & Kira is utterly engrossing  
and made this book an absolute page turner!
But Kira wasn't the only one smitten at first sight, Grayson found her beauty beguiling...

"It was the color of her eyes that stunned me. The greenest I'd ever seen. They were luminous, like twin emeralds. I got the sudden feeling those eyes saw things other eyes didn't. Bewitching. Magnetic. I felt like I couldn't take a breath. My eyes homed in on her right cheek. she had a dimple. The little witch had a dimple".

This is a story that made me dream of kisses and sunsets and gave me a new found 
appreciation for amethyst colored liquid love- AKA wine! (not that I needed much help there...)
The characters were so real to me that I even forgot myself and prayed for them at Sunday Mass LOL!
I imagine it would be hard, as an author, to continuously write amazing books. With each one the bar is raised and expectations grow. But Mia Sheridan never fails to deliver,
 and by the time I've finished reading one of her books I'm completely in awe again.
The only problem I find is I've highlighted pages and pages of beautifully composed words
and can never decide which to share with you. I guess you'll just have to read for yourself.

Another superb 6 star read!!!

                    ☆҉‿➹⁀☆҉☆Chatting with Mia Sheridan✯ ☆҉‿➹⁀☆


Q.  Hi Mia thanks so much for chatting with us! Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? 
A.  I started writing a blog 3 years ago about something personal in my life that I was struggling through. Several      people who read it encouraged me to write a book. :) I wasn't ready to write on that topic at the time, but I'd        always read romance novels and decided to try my hand at that! 

Q. Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? 
A. Dialogue can be challenging for me - especially in the beginning when I'm really trying to get in my character's     head and figure out what he/she would think/say. :) 

Q.  Are any experiences in your books based on real life or someone you know? 
A.  The experiences, no. But I do draw upon emotions that I've felt, reactions that I imagine I would have to the         things my characters are experiencing. So it does become personal in many ways even though the premise       for the story is completely fictitious.

Q.  I know its like asking you to choose your favorite child but which of your female & male characters have had       the biggest impact on you? 
A.  Female: Evie, because I put most of myself in her - especially at the time I was writing. Male: Archer                because I'm most protective of him. :)

Q. What books have influenced your life the most? 
A.  Probably books I read as a pre-teen/teen because they really cemented my love of books and drew out the        first deep emotions for fictional characters! The Outsiders, The Thorn Birds, books by VC Andrews. I                  remember walking home from school tripping over my own feet because I had a book 
     glued to my face as I walked.

Q.  Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest? 
A.   Well, I LOVE Amy Harmon. She's such a beautiful writer and I love that I always take away a life lesson             from her stories. Those are the types of books that change me.

Q. When you sit down to write a book, how much of the plot is developed before hand or do you prefer to let it          evolve as you go?
A. I develop a lot of the plot before I start. But I'm never opposed to changes that happen naturally along the           way!

 Q. Whats next for Mia Sheridan? Are you able to tell us a bit about your what you're currently working on?
 A.  I'm currently developing a story in my head for the next Sign of Love novel. It's very basic so far,
      but it grows every day! :D

Q. Your book 'Archers Voice' is one of my all time favorite books and I know many readers agree, What were the      challenges in bringing it to life ( research, literary, psychological and logistical)?? 
A.  Thank you! My main challenge with Archer was that his character didn't start talking to me until I was at least       halfway through the book. I was sort of "writing blind," frustrated because I wasn't sure who he was. Sounds       like him, right? :D But once he started talking, I went back and edited several scenes at the front of the               book. I was also concerned that women wouldn't respond to him because he was so opposite from the alpha       male we all love! But thankfully, he's been well-received and well-loved by many. :)

Q.  I'm so excited that we will see Archers Voice on the big screen - Congratulations! Now what everyone wants         to know - who do you envision or who would you love to portray Archer & Bree? 
A.   Thanks!! It's very exciting! You know, I really don't have any idea right now. I kind of want to stay open               because I don't want to envision specific actors and close my mind off to those that might be perfect,                 although outside my vision. I do love to hear ideas from readers, though!

      Thanks so much for having me! xx! Mia
