Healed: Stone and Pepper

It’s Cliffside Bay and beyond in this heartwarming enemies-to-lovers romantic adventure from USA Today bestselling author Tess Thompson.

Stone Hickman is the last of a dying breed. The former Marine believes in integrity, service to his country, a hard day’s work, and taking care of his loved ones. When he meets the clever Pepper Griffin, their obvious attraction has him ready to count the stunning beauty among the people that he cares for. But Pepper doesn’t share the instant connection. In fact, she wants nothing to do with him. And for honest, straightforward Stone, not knowing why only makes the rejection worse.

Pepper Griffin is the epitome of scrappy. For years she’s struggled to make acting her career without any help at all from her famous father. While she’s still accepting meager roles with little screen time, her best friend has steadily risen to the height of fame. To make matters worse, that very same friend is happily in love, newly engaged, and wants poor Pepper, whose love life is as sad and pathetic as her last film role, to serve as her maid-of-honor while Pepper’s enemy, Stone Hickman, is sure to be the groom’s best man.
Though Pepper despises the best man, she loves the bride-to-be more. To keep the peace, Pepper willingly includes Stone in the wedding planning process. When the unlikely pair find themselves stranded in a snowstorm while searching for the perfect venue, they’ll have to work together to survive the chill even if that means thawing Pepper’s heart.

“Once again Ms. Thompson grabs you at page 1 and pulls you into the story, this is a wonderful series and one that leaves you wanting more.” – R. H. McCort, Amazon reviewer

“You feel the lightness come over Pepper as she works through everything. You feel the love of family coming through Stone as his family pulls together. I want to tell you all about it more in detail but if I did then you wouldn’t experience Healed fully for yourself. I’m just going to say the sexual tension is high between Stone and Pepper throughout and they will burn up the pages. This is such a beautiful read and should be one clicked today.” – Beckyrae99, Top 1000 reviewer

“I stayed up half the night as I couldn’t put it down! I say this after reading each installment of this series, but they just get better and better. I was so thrilled to read Pepper and Stones story and with all the twists and turns it was absolutely terrific. What an amazing story of love, redemption and healing.” – Amazon customer
