When Bree Prescott arrives in the sleepy, lakeside town of Pelion, Maine, she hopes against hope that this is the place where she will finally find the peace she so desperately seeks. On her first day there, her life collides with Archer Hale, an isolated man who holds a secret agony of his own. A man no one else sees.
Archer's Voice is the story of a woman chained to the memory of one horrifying night and the man whose love is the key to her freedom. It is the story of a silent man who lives with an excruciating wound and the woman who helps him find his voice. It is the story of suffering, fate, and the transformative power of love.
THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. The first three books in the series need not be read to enjoy this book. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Archer’s Voice is one of those elusive romance novels. It has depth, humor, a wonderful cast of characters, and some steamy love scenes. It’s a beautifully written, heartwarming story about two people who’ve been crippled by tragedy and are made strong again by each other’s love.
I simply adored the characters of Bree and Archer. I wanted to crawl inside them, snuggle up, and never leave. I loved the fact that the author took her time in developing the layers of their relationship. It wasn’t an easy start to their friendship. Bree had to work hard to get Archer to open up to her, but that made it all the more rewarding when he did. I devoured this book and even though I was sad to say goodbye to all the characters I’d grown to love, I was satisfied. I’m glad this is a stand-alone novel. Thank you, Ms. Sheridan, for avoiding the annoying trend of milking one good story into a tired trilogy.
I do have one piece of advice for would-be readers. Don’t judge this book by its cover. You’ve heard that before, but it couldn’t be more true in this case. I stumbled upon this book and thought I might like it, but even though the cover is tasteful it made me pause. I took a chance anyway and I’m glad I did. This is a gorgeous story, not a story about a man’s gorgeous body. I almost wish they would release another edition with a different cover that would do justice to the story. Otherwise, well done, Mia Sheridan!
