Henry Harris was living his dream as a staff sergeant in the Marines. When he's killed in action, his devastated family is in for one more shock: he had a daughter they never knew about.
Morgan Riley has been raising Etta on her own, and that's always been fine by her - until Henry's brother Trevor arrives on her doorstep, willing to do anything to help and make up for his brother's mistakes. Their attraction feels wrong, but Morgan can't seem to turn him away.
Trevor is suddenly in too deep. He has always wanted a family, but Etta and Morgan come with complications. Yet as Etta brings them closer together, Trevor begins to imagine giving Morgan and Etta the life his brother never could. But he wonders if Morgan will ever learn to trust another man with her heart, especially a man whose last name is Harris.
Nicole Jacquelyn is the mom of two little girls and a full time college student. She hasn’t watched television in well over a year, she still does things that drive her mother crazy, and she loves to read. At eight years old, when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she told people she wanted to be a mom. When she was twelve her answer changed- to author. By the time she was eighteen, when people asked her what she wanted to do with her life, she told them she really wanted to be a writer- but the odds of that happening were so slim that she’d get her business degree “just to be safe”. Her dreams stayed constant. First she became a mom, then she went to college, and during her senior year- with one daughter in first grade and the other in preschool, she sat down and wrote a story.
Morgan Riley thought she had life all nailed down, and then in the blink of an eye she felt it being ripped from her, she found out she was expecting, and the father of her baby chose his career over them and walked away. Which pretty much put an end to things between them, she informed him she was keeping their baby, and did not expect him to offer them support and or anything else, he was free to go. Losing him was tough, but knowing that he wasn't going to be their for her and their daughter was downright heartbreaking, she thought he was a better man than that, but obviously she thought wrong. Now two years later her and Etta are doing fine on their own; they have a roof over their heads, she has a decent job, and they have a good support system of friends and her family... but now that support system is about to get bigger. She never knew much about her ex's family, and they knew nothing about her and her daughter, but after Henry died and his military benefit paperwork was sent to his family they learned that Henry had a secret. And now they are heading her way for answers...
As soon as Trevor and his family learn that Henry had been keeping a big secret from them, that he had a daughter they never knew about, they immediately decided that they wanted to meet Etta and her mother. With some consideration Trevor decided to be the one to show up on her doorstep and introduce himself, and let her know that there was a family that would love to meet them, but once he is there on that doorstep things take an unexpected turn. There is an instant attraction to his brother's ex, and it feels so wrong to want her, but damned if he doesn't want to step in and take his brother's place in their lives. It's the family he has always wanted for himself, and he can't fathom why his brother would want nothing to do with them, he wants to do right by them and do what his brother should have done all along... but Morgan isn't so sure she can trust another Harris man!
Heart of Glass is a heart-wrenching tale that will take a serious toll on your heart and your thoughts, it will wreck you in the best possible way! From the very beginning I knew this one was going to hurt a little, the story took off, my heart felt the squeeze, the emotions started to swirl, and I had to fight the tears the whole way through... but somewhere along the way it started to hurt a lot less, and I felt my heart being mended, and a rejoicing feeling coming on. Once again I have to say that I am beyond impressed with Ms. Jacquelyn's beautiful words, and her well crafted characters, this wonderful combination hit me deep in the heart, and left me forever moved! I highly recommend you take a chance on this series, each book is packed with an powerful emotional punch that is certain to be felt long after the last page is turned!
