Book Description:

“From Darkness into Love is a fast-paced, deeply emotional, second-chance romance that readers have described as “full of action, suspense, and romance.”

How many times will you risk your heart for love?

Not once, but twice, tragedy had torn Jessie’s world apart. Cameron had saved her and captured her heart. However, before they could reach their happy ending, threats from a sinister stranger forced her to abandon everything she loved.

It had taken years for Cameron’s heart to heal, allowing him to move on with someone else. Except – the heart wants what the heart wants.

When Jessie returns home, the chemistry between them is too powerful to resist. Then threatening messages return, bringing their second chance for a happy ending to a halt. They’re left to face the fact – someone in Swan Harbor intends to keep them apart.

For a chance at the future they want, Jessie and Cameron must rely on everyone available – even the suspected enemy.

Reviews for the Book

Swan Harbor is a place you'll want to retreat to when your real life is a little down. The characters are real. I love their words and inner dialog feel like something I would think and say. The friendships feel true and real.
The "mystery" was a tad weak and rushed in this one but everything else made up for it. I loved the jumping back/forward so we could see how Jessie progressed and her love grew. - Lisa Flip

About the Author: Sophie Bartow

Hi, my name is Sophie and I am a hopeless romantic. Whether it’s in books, television or movies, give me a man who’s a little flawed and a strong woman and I will sit back and enjoy the romance. Television shows such as Days of Our Lives, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Remington Steele, Lois and Clark, Buffy, Lucifer, Bones, Timeless, A Discovery of Witches and Once Upon a Time had/have couples that make me swoon.

I’m a married, mother of four with a dog, three cats and a few saltwater fish. What that means is, I have had a very busy household for the past 20+ years. But now that my twin daughters are seniors, I am searching for my next adventure.

My muse really stirred to life a few years ago when I watched a lost girl fall for a lost boy. I started honing my skill with fanfiction, but then a fictional town popped up and the residents want their stories told.

For me, a story is a journey that begins with an inspiration. So, grab a chair and join me in Swan Harbor, Maine. We’ll take a tour of the town and meet a few characters. It’s going to be a wild year. I hope you enjoy.
