Presley Marks has just become a cliché: the jilted bride. Wearing a white dress, standing in front of her friends and family, she announces that her fiancé—according to his text—has forgotten about the wedding.
Humiliated and angry, she hides from the world in the mundane routine of her life. Working at the Clifton Forge Garage isn’t glamorous, but it’s safe from the spotlight.
At least it was, until Shaw Valance comes to town.
The notorious Hollywood actor is starring in a movie based on the town’s infamous murder. When he’s not on set, Shaw hovers at the garage, watching as they build his custom motorcycle and irritating her with his handsome smile. He was supposed to leave once filming wrapped and go back to his fancy life, not buy the house next door.
But Shaw might regret that purchase once Presley’s ex-fiancé returns, bringing with him a war between old rivals that could burn both their houses down.
I have loved this Series so much! Devney Perry writes the best stories that always have the perfect amount of romance, mystery, and that are the perfect pace.
Stone Princess is almost like an Enemies to lovers book which I eat up. Presley has worked at the Garage for Dash for years, and she is trying to move on from being left standing at the alter alone and having to call of her wedding. She dreams of one day meeting a man who will love her unconditionally, but does not expect to feel something for the steamy, hot movie star who rolls into Clifton Forge.
Shaw is so much more than a movie star, and he is everything that Presley needs in a man. I love that Presley got her own book, and she is such a strong woman. While Shaw is strong, someone that can protect Presley, she doesn’t need to be protected. She can stand on her own two feet, and that is all because she has the love of her friends who have been there for her for the last 10 years.
I have loved reading this series, and am so excited for the next book!! Devney Perry always writes a book that I know I will love and be able to escape into, plus her books have made me had Montana to my list of must visit states someday. 🙂
My realtor would have earned a higher commission if she had mentioned that the woman who lived next door was Presley Marks. “Isn’t this a surprise?”
“Is it?” Presley asked, frowning as I descended my steps and crossed the lawn, meeting her in her driveway. She raised a dark blond eyebrow. “Because it sort of feels like stalking.”
I chuckled. “I swear I had no idea you lived next door.”
But what a bonus. I wouldn’t have to make excuses to stop by the garage to see her. She could tear that insurance waiver to shreds. Presley had to know I didn’t give a damn about that bike they were building for me.
“You bought this house?”
“Yeah.” I reached for the grocery bags she had in her hands. “Here, let me help.”
She twisted away. “I’ve got them.”
“Come on.” I stepped forward and she took a step back. Wait, did she really think I was stalking her? “I’m just trying to help. I mean, I’ll probably start writing down your daily schedule so I can make sure our paths cross at least once a day. But that’s normal, right? For stalkers?”
“Are you being funny?”
My smile flattened. “I guess not.”
