Enduring Dreams

Widow's Might Series, Book One

Loving her might be a blueprint for disaster.

For years, fear has controlled Claire Kingsley’s choices. Fear of professional rejection. Fear of more miscarriages. Fear of ruining another life. Offered a chance to once more practice architecture as a rare female in the business, she fights against the tenacious pull that cost her husband his life. But disturbing news ignites a fierce loyalty to her past love and a powerful attraction to a new one—an attraction she resists…for his sake.

Mark Gregory’s first architectural project in Riverport comes with the request that he work with Claire. He balks at risking his new business and good name on someone with questionable training. Yet, Claire stirs his heart like no other woman.

When events threaten Mark’s chance to obtain an important commission, will Claire conquer her fears to help him succeed, or will she destroy another man’s dream?
