Stone Silence by Taylor Dean

Great big beautiful love.

Does it really exist?

Everyone tells me it does. They say, “Spencer Elliott, don’t worry, you’ll find it one day. You just have to find the right man and when you do, it will surprise the heck out of you.”

I’m still waiting for that heck of a surprise to hit. It has proven to be elusive thus far. I’m pretty sure the entire world is lying about love and the joke is on me.

I know I want a man in my heart and in my life. Unfortunately, most men immediately push my OFF button and I lose interest quickly.

Feeling pressure to prove I’m trying to find my soulmate, I finally give in and agree to a date. Huge mistake. Afterward I find myself abandoned in the middle of nowhere, in desperate need of help.

That’s when I meet Stony by chance.

He’s a silent and unsmiling man who intrigues me with his ability to keep going after life has knocked him down. Suddenly the abstract notion of love becomes tangible and within my reach. Once I experience it, I wonder how I ever lived without it.

That’s when I stay with Stony by choice.

But when Stony’s hidden past and present-day reality collide, his silence is broken. And the truth about his life nearly brings me to my knees. I can’t compete with ghosts from the past.

I refuse to fight for a man’s love. He either loves me or he doesn’t. It’s as simple and as complicated as that.

My only hope is . . . he does.

 

The Sound of Silence Series is a three book series.

Book One: Stone Silence, Spencer’s Story
Book Two: Jailbird, Mia’s Story
Book Three: Hothouse Flower, Shay’s Story

Each book has a happy ending and there are no cliffhangers. They are not standalones and should be read in order.

Praise for Stone Silence

What readers are saying about STONE SILENCE:
This story just wrapped me in its arms and held me tight. I adored the characters and never wanted the book to end. Dean weaves a heart-tugging romance like nobody else’s business. Her books are always a feast to my literary mind and always go on my To-Read-Again pile once I finish.

-Charissa Stastny, Author

Once again Dean takes the raw pain and hurt many of us can relate to, and creates a perfectly romantic tale for readers to escape into, giving us hope, love, second chances and ultimately that believable happily ever after we all seek for as true romance lovers.

READ AN EXCERPT FROM STONE SILENCE:

Excerpt:

I have to believe help will be in Roby.
But I can’t make it without water.
Now would be a good time for someone to ask me for a ride again. I
contemplate finding a shady place to sit and wait for the rain that’s supposed
to arrive this afternoon. The thought leads to a mental vision of me shivering
in the bushes, drenched and stranded. I’m not sure which is
the lesser of two evils. Plus, I can’t sit around and wait for rain water to
quench my thirst. I know I don’t have that kind of time. All I know is Finn
felt determined to get home early today so he could dodge the rain. Reportedly,
torrential downfalls are headed this way. The news predicts flooding is going
to be a problem again.
It doesn’t take a genius to figure that one out.
Even though I feel utterly alone, the most alone I’ve ever felt in
my life, I realize that I’m not really alone. When people love you, are you
ever really alone? They’re always behind the scenes, thinking of you and hoping
for your safety. I have people in my life who love me. I matter to them. If
something happens to me, they will mourn my loss from their life. This buoys
me. They are with me, strengthening me. I feel them with me now, coaxing me to
not give up. I hear my mom’s voice in my head; I love you, Spencer, my
precious daughter. I hear my dad’s voice; My baby girl, my
beautiful baby girl. I hear my brother’s voice; Don’t you dare
give up, Spencer. Don’t you do it.
He’s right. I can’t quit now. I’ve come too far.
I’ve been sitting for too long. I have to keep going. I can’t give
in to delirium. I pull myself up to a standing position and fight the dizziness
that overcomes me.
Even though I’m still standing in the harsh sunlight, I can now
see angry storm clouds in the distance. The horizon holds that blurry, slanted
look, the one that tells me it’s pouring rain in that neck of the woods. I
wonder how soon it will arrive here. The humidity level has risen in the past
half hour and I’m sweating profusely. My skin feels cool and moist, yet I’m
burning up and goosebumps are covering my arms. An odd combination. My pulse is
racing and the muscles in my legs are cramping.
I need help now. I can’t wait any longer. I’m no longer fighting
for just my current safety, I’m fighting for my life.
Suddenly, I hear a strange sound. A low buzz, the trill of
electric machinery. It wafts over the airwaves and calls to me.
Life.
Someone is out here working. At last, I’ve found someone I can ask
for help. Whoever it is, they are my only hope. My situation is dire and I
don’t have a choice.
There’s a small gravel road to the right of me. The sound is
coming from that direction. The rise and fall of the land doesn’t allow me to
see where I’m headed. I follow the sound as if it’s the call of the Pied Piper.
Wherever it takes me, that’s where I’m going.
I have no other option.
My feet propel me forward like they have a will of their own and I
feel helpless. I’m no longer in control; the situation has taken control of me.
