Willa Doon has always been shy. Her quiet demeanor was something she’s always embraced. That is, until Jackson Page moves to town. The one man she desperately wants to take notice struggles to remember her name.

Year after year, Willa stands by, watching as the bartender slash playboy drowns his demons in beer and sex. Then one night, he shows up at her door, suddenly aware that the girl he’s seen around Lark Cove is now a beautiful woman.

Except what he doesn’t remember is that this visit isn’t his first. They spent a night together once before. A night he’s forgotten, thanks to a bottle of tequila.

A night that crushed a timid girl’s heart, and set a broken man on the path to heal them both.

Excerpt

Be bold.

I could kiss him. I bet he’d really be surprised if I swung up and straddled his lap. Except in this dress, there’d be no swinging or straddling. And dress issues aside, I probably wouldn’t have done it anyway.

“I can hear the gears turning, Willa. What’s going on in your mind?”

“Nothing.” I stared at my lap. “I, um . . .”

Be bold. For once in your life, be bold.

I took a deep breath, then blurted, “Doyouwannastaythenight?”

“Say that again?”

My eyes squeezed shut. The courage I’d scraped together to say it once had nearly wiped out my reserves, but I summoned just a smidge more. “Do you want to stay the night?”

“Yes.”

My eyes flew open as I looked up at him, astonished. “Really?”

“Yes, but I’m not going to.”

“Oh.” I wanted to crawl under the couch cushions and hide. “Okay.”

“We need to talk about a few things first.” He angled his body on the sofa, turning my way. When I didn’t move or look away from my lap, he put his hands on my shoulders, gently twisting them sideways.

I still didn’t budge.

“Work with me here, babe.”

No one had ever called me babe before, and I always thought men used it when they couldn’t remember a woman’s name.

“I don’t know if I like being called babe.”

Jackson laughed, shaking his head. “Then I’ll think of something else. Now will you spin this way and look at me? Please?”

I sighed and turned, reluctantly lifting my eyes to meet his.

“You’re the best kiss I’ve had in my life.”

Me? I was a good kisser? “No way.”

“Yes, way. And that tells me that everything else we do is going to be off the charts. But I messed up your first kiss. I’m not going to mess up the rest. If I stay tonight, I doubt I’ll keep my hands to myself.”

There was so much running through my mind it nearly exploded. So I began processing his speech one piece at a time, starting at the beginning.

I was a good kisser? I was a good kisser. No, the best. My inner diva was about the size of a gummy bear, but she was standing tall tonight, giving me a burst of confidence.

I love everything by Devney! If I had to pick, The Outpost is definitely my top favorite though! Thank you for the chance and for being just amazing. (Both Natasha and Devney!)

I can’t wait to read this!!!

It’s a tough choice because I have loved all of Devney Perry’s books! It is a tie between The Outpost and The Birthday List. :)

thanks so much for tge chance! i love Devney’s books, but my favorite is The Clover Chapel such a wonderful second chance romance.

Wow it’s hard to choose one but if I have to, I’ll go with The Lucky Heart or The Outpost. Thanks for the chance, I can’t wait to read Timid! :)

Do i have to pick just one?? Im on book 4 of the Jamison Valley series. enjoying them so much. Favorite Coppersmith Farmhouse.

OMG! This excerpt has me dying to read this! So freaking cute! I think I’m in love with Willa already!
Impossible to choose a favorite Devney book but I love The Outpost ❤️

There is NO picking a favorite! She has been added to my don’t think about it, just buy the book list. 😍😍💜💙 so excited to read the next one!

I love EVERY Devney Perry Book so it is serious torture to choose a favourite. Loved Tattered. Loved The Birthday List. Loved all the Jamieson Valley. Nope. They’re all amazing!! Can’t wait for Timid!! ❤️❤️

The Birthday List is my favorite, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Timid might take the top slot. Thanks for the chance! What a fantastic giveaway <3

Uhhh that’s so hard!!! I loved the Outpost a close second would be the Birthday List!! Thanks Natasha and Devney ❤️❤️

The Outpost is by far my favorite book of Devney’s, and maybe even a top contender for my favorite romance novel of all time! Thanks for the chance Natasha!!!

The Lucky Heart is my favourite but I think once I read Timid it’ll be a tie 😊😍
Thanks for the chance 😘

It’s tough to choose a favorite but I’d say The Outpost and The Birthday List are definitely at the top of the list!

The Outpost is still my fav because Beau 😍😍😍 Super duper excited for this one! Go Willa!! Make him work for it! 😂 Thanks for the opportunity!

I love Devney Perry!! I can’t choose which of her books I like/love best. They’re all so special & unique. This next book, looks no different. Thank you for chance to win. :)

The Birthday List is my favorite, I think. It is so hard to choose. I loved the whole story, with the list and the connections between them. It was amazing.

I love all her books, but I think The Birthday List would probably be my favorite. I loved the jars and the lists and the story! Actually, I love her… she is an amazing writer.

I love all of her books but if I had to pick one, it would be Coppersmith Farmhouse! Can’t wait to read Timid! Thanks for the chance!!

I love all of her books but if i had to pick one, it would Coppersmith Farmhouse! Can’t wait to read Timid! Thanks for the chance!!

Cobbersmith holds a special place in my heart, since it was the first one. That said, I think Tattered actually is my favorite one.

Devney is a new to me author but I’ve been dying to try her books. A particular friend has been convincing me that I absolutely NEED to read her work!

Thanks so much for this awesome give away!! My favorite would have to be The Coppersmith Farmhouse ❤️❤️❤️

The Copper Smith Farm House was the first book I read from Devney Perry and I fell in love with her writing. That whole series was amazing and loved each story for different reasons, but I’ll say the first is my favorite.

Not too sure that I can pick a favourite, all her books are wonderful. The book that made me fall in love with this author was the first of Devney Perry’s that I ever read, The Coppersmith Farmhouse. Thanks for the chance.

The Outpost was my favorite, but I’m reading Timid and OMG!!!! from the looks of it, Jackson and Willa are really going to get the First Place!!

Tattered for sure! I’m a sucker for second chance romance, and this one was one of the best! I loved it! Can’t wait for Willa and Jonathan’s story! Thanks for the chance!

I just read Tattered so far and loooooved it. I can´t wait for Timid and I´ll read her other books hopefully soon too :D

I love all of her books 💕 My favorite is “The Outpost”. Can’t wait to read “Timid” 😊 Thank you for the chance :-)

Goodness me, how do you choose a favorite Devney novel? I’m gonna have to go with The Outpost as it was my first (and then I binged every other title that she had out). Soooooo good! Thanks for the awesome chance.

That’s a hard choice! Loved all the books I’ve read so far from her. But…I thunk my fave so far has been The Outpost. It’s a great series tho. Can’t wait to read this series too! 😘❤💋
