From the Publisher:

Some lovers never leave you...

Twenty years ago she had her whole life spread out before her like a mesmerizing map. She was Bess Walsh, a fresh-scrubbed, middle-class student ready to conquer the design world. And she was taken. Absolutely and completely.

But not by Andy, her well-groomed, intellectual boyfriend who hinted more than once about a ring. No. During that hot summer as a waitress and living on the beach, she met Nick, a dark haired, local bad boy. He was, to put it mildly, not someone she could take home to Daddy.

Instead, Nick became her dirty little secret; a fervent sexual accomplice who knew how to ignite an all-consuming obsession she had no idea she carried deep within her.

Bess had always wondered what happened to Nick after that summer, after their promise to meet again. And now, back at the beach house and taking a break from responsibility, from marriage, from life, she discovers his heartbreaking fate--and why he never came back for her. Suddenly Nick's name is on her lips...his hands on her thighs...dark hair and eyes called back from the swirling gray of purgatory's depths.

Dead, alive, or something in-between, they can't stop their hunger.

She wouldn't dare.

Read an excerpt

"She didn't tell Nick she loved him. She didn't know how. Three simple words that in the past had so easily fallen from her mouth, like marbles spilled from a jar, didn't seem adequate to describe the width and depth and breadth of her emotions when she was with him. Or without him" p. 295


Deeper is a beautiful, haunting, and heart wrenching love story about lost love and second chances. Megan Hart's lyrical storytelling weaves Bess and Nick's story through glimpses of their brief, yet tumultuous summer affair that would have life long consequences and their second chance at love twenty years later.

For me Deeper is in the same tradition as great love stories such as Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, where no obstacle can hinder their love, imperfect as it may be. This story has stayed with me since I finished reading it, and is not easily forgotten. It is everything that I have come to expect from a Megan Hart novel. If you have read at least one of her books I think you know what I am talking about, and if you have not then you are missing out on one of today’s greatest romance writers. Though her romances do not generally have the “traditional” type of “happily ever after” her love stories (so much more than a romance) offer the hope of love; her endings are authentic and true to her characters.

I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK, and can’t even begin to express my feelings for it. Even though I shed tears of grief for the life Bess and Nick could have shared, it had the perfect ending. Their depth of love was shown in every written word, from Bess’s willingness to sacrifice everything for her love for Nick, to Nick’s final gesture of undying love, and finally to the glimmer of hope for Bess and Eddie. Deeper couldn’t be anything other than what it is… a great love story.

ps. for those of you who read Broken, Joe and Sadie make a very brief appearance and reveal their HEA :)

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
