“Beautifully written, Embers is gritty, suspense-filled, and sensual. A moving story of childhood friends torn apart by secrets and drawn back together by love.”
Diane Chamberlain, best-selling author
of The Midwife’s Confession
She wishes it had burned to the ground: that's Anne Marquel's first thought when she learns that Yesterday's Dream, her childhood home, has been ravaged by fire. Haunted by the shocking secrets of her past, she's forced to return to the place she fled in terror twelve years ago, and only the prospect of seeing Connor McLeod, youthful hero of her girlish fantasies, allays her fear. But will the unexpected spark that flares between her and a very adult, strikingly handsome Con have the chance to grow into a future together? Or will it be destroyed by the wicked secrets that Anne is bound to keep? Is the menace behind those secrets truly gone—or does it lie smoldering in the ruins of Yesterday's Dream?
“Few authors would dare venture into the emotional depths of Mary Kirk’s wonderful... book, Embers. But then, there is only one Mary Kirk, and romance readers are extremely fortunate to enjoy the fruits of her magnificent talent and superb craftsmanship.... Handling difficult issues with extraordinary sensitivity, Ms. Kirk creates a love story that will reverberate in your soul for many a day to come.”

Another Kirk for my keeper shelf!”
