A standalone romance from the New York Times bestselling author of Archer's Voice.

Holden Scott is the prince of professional football. At least he was before he lost it all . . . or more to the point, before he threw it all away. Now he's out of a job, out of the public's good graces, and perhaps just a little out of his mind. So when a friend offers up his remote lodge in the wilds of Colorado, giving Holden some time away to get his life back on track, he can hardly say no. The last thing he expects is to see a beautiful girl in the woods—one wearing a white, lace dress who appears in the moonlight, and leaves no footprints behind. Is she a dream? A ghost? A product of his muddled imagination? Or something entirely different?

Midnight Lily is the haunting love story of two lost souls reaching for each other in the dark. A tale of healing, acceptance, and the worlds we create to protect our own hearts. It is a story of being lost, of being found, and of being in the place between.

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY VIRGO. Non-Paranormal, New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.



Crista’s Review

5 Mind-Blowing Stars!

Thought provoking, intense, unbelievably romantic, completely unexpected, and totally unique. These are adjectives that I would use to describe this true masterpiece of a book. Mia Sheridan has stretched outside of her comfort zone with this book and writes with courage, strength, and conviction.  For those who are willing to dive into this book without preconceived notions or expectations, this book has transformative power.

Here is a warning: It is imperative that you approach this book without reading spoiler reviews. It is best to go in blind and just trust Mia Sheridan’s storytelling ability to guide you through.

Mia Sheridan books are always a guarantee for me, and this book is no exception. After reading a book by this author, I am always left with a feeling that nothing that I read immediately following has the chance of comparing, and my heart is always aching (in a good way). This author has the ability to transport the reader into another world and create vivid characters and emotions that are so real and tangible, that the reader becomes a part of the story.

As a reader, I guess this is the ultimate experience: to be transported to a different place and time. In Midnight Lily, we are transported to a remote cabin in the mountains of Colorado and then to the bustling, metropolitan city of San Francisco, CA. Both settings serve as an important part of this love story and the settings almost become “secondary characters” in the story.

This love story is a sweet one. There is definite steam in this book, but the love story goes beyond passion and is a soul-mate sort of union. Both characters are in need of rescue for different reasons, and find a safe haven and sanctuary in one another.

As I closed the final page on this book, I spent some time just looking at the poem that Sheridan puts at the very end of this beautiful love story.  It is such a remarkable poem, and it is a perfect way to end the journey of Midnight Lily.

This is a book that I will definitely go back and read a second time, but not yet. I need to spend some time reveling in the experience and the many emotions that I experienced over the past few days reading this book.  It is an experience that I will not soon forget.
