A gripping emotional rollercoaster of a read, MIRACLE MAN is a full-length romance novel by celebrated author Hildy Fox. For lovers of sweeping romantic stories of strong, modern women who refuse to give up in impossible circumstances... "Lahra felt a hand lightly grasp each of her arms. She responded to his touch and turned to face him. She looked up into his beautiful eyes and could see her reflection. And around her was the fire, burning there in his eyes like some primal instinct come to life. His hand moved up and stroked her cheek so gently that she couldn't even be sure that he'd touched her. Her insides were like some wild amusement park, whirring and flashing and turning and spinning, and she parted her lips as if to invite him inside. There were so many things she wanted to say-that she felt she should say-but the bells and sirens of the amusement park drowned them all out before they could reach her mouth. He slid her glasses off, and she momentarily closed her eyes as if preparing to reopen them to a whole new view of the world. When she did open them, the flames in Marcus's eyes were growing larger, closer, and she felt her body surrender to his arms as they encircled her. She shut her eyes again, the disbelief in her heart evicted by a thousand chemical reactions as she felt his soft breath against her waiting lips. And then he was kissing her, tender caresses across her mouth like whispered promises in her ear. It still wasn't too late to revoke the invitation her lips had made to him. She could still pull away and listen to all the reasons why it was wrong for her to let herself be kissed by this man. But she didn't stop. She pressed forward. His arms held her tighter and her lips yielded to the subtle message in his kiss. Everything that she was seemed to gather at some imaginary gate, the key to which he had somehow found. It was only a matter of time before the tumblers fell and the gate swung wide, before her heart, mind and soul enveloped him like bright light bouncing off a silver screen..." Having returned to her home town after so long away, all Lahra Brook wanted was to relax at her family home, reconnect with dear old Wally, and visit the place she loved most in the world, the place that defined who and what she was--the Miracle Cinema, a fading bastion of Art Deco grandeur. She didn't expect to meet a man, much less this man, the one who was about to systematically tear her heart to pieces. But as the greatest floods in the region's history prepare to unleash their destructive force, perhaps Lahra can fight back--against the storm, against the demise of the old and forgotten, against the man who is all at once her greatest love and greatest threat...
