About this title


Pro-football player Cooper Lowry is off the field and into some trouble--in the form of a very alluring, very free-spirited apple orchard owner named Whitney Reed--in the first installment in Liora Blake's all new Grand Valley series.

After eight seasons playing pro-football, Cooper Lowry knows all the right answers.

Is he stubborn, short-tempered, and impatient? Yes. Are jersey chasers more trouble than they're worth? Absolutely. Has he ever imagined a life beyond the game? Nope.

Cooper has built an enviable career--the result of staying focused, working hard, and keeping his head on straight--even as his body takes the brunt. So when a hard hit during a Sunday home game leaves him in a dazed heap on the field, it's nothing more than another day at the office. The only thing that's different about this Sunday is a chance encounter with a certain fascinating, beautiful free-spirited woman. And some sternly-worded instructions from his coach to take a little time off and give his body the TLC it craves--before he does lasting damage.

Whitney Reed is a few months away from losing the organic fruit orchard she bought three years ago in the tiny town of Hotchkiss, Colorado. At the time, she was just looking for a place to get lost. Instead, she found a home, somewhere she could finally put down roots. Now foreclosure is knocking on her door--along with a grumpy, gorgeous football player who might be just what she never knew she needed.

A charming love story for romance and sports fans alike, First Step Forward is a sexy, heartwarming romp perfect for readers of Jennifer Probst, Kristan Higgins, and Julie James.


"Blake expands her True series (after True North) and continues to write sharp, deep characters that are refreshing and personable. Devon and Simon s story is romance at its core, with an enticing edge of two strong-willed people who overcome personal histories and fears to make it all work. A great entry to the series, which grows better with this addition."--Library Journal on True Deovtion"

"One of my favorite aspects of True Devotion was the depth of emotional intimacy shared by the main characters...Add in humor, fun and flirty banter, erotic role-play, and a great secondary cast of characters, and you can see why True Devotion was a riveting romantic read!"--A Bookish Escape

"GAH! I just love this author!...Funny, snarky, romantic humor....excellent chemistry and a winning addition to the True series! I am a fan of this young author and I can t wait to see what comes next!"--KT Book Reviews on True Devotion"

"Sweet, romantic, and sexy! This was a great and charming read that had me hooked at every page turn!"--The Novel Tease on True Devotion

"This series is amazing... If you re looking for a hot read that will have you laughing out loud and falling for the hot guitarist, definitely pick this one up today."--Reading Past My Bedtime on True Devotion"

"Simmering, smoldering, sensual."--The Love Junkee on True Devotion

"Blake s debut is a heated, sexy romp that will entice readers to want more...Funny, endearing and more than a little hot, True North scores a hit."--Library Journal, Starred Review for True North"

"Couldn't put it down."--Fresh Fiction on True North

"Highly adult romance full of love and forgiveness."--Harlequin Junkie on True North
