Brightwater Series Book #1

By: Lia Riley

Releasing June 23rd, 2015

Avon Romance


New to Avon author Lia Riley makes a splash with her first sexy, hilarious book in the sizzling Brightwater series!

A kiss is just the beginning…

Pinterest Perfect. Or so Annie Carson’s life appears on her popular blog. Reality is… messier. Especially when it lands her back in one-cow town, Brightwater, California, and back in the path of the gorgeous six-foot-four reason she left. Sawyer Kane may fill out those wranglers, but she won’t be distracted from her task. Annie just needs the summer to spruce up and sell her family’s farm so she and her young son can start a new life in the big city. Simple, easy, perfect.

Sawyer has always regretted letting the first girl he loved slip away. He won’t make the same mistake twice, but can he convince beautiful, wary Annie to trust her heart again when she’s been given every reason not to? And as a single kiss turns to so much more, can Annie give up her idea of perfect for a forever that’s blissfully real.

“So back to Sawyer,” Claire said as she entered the kitchen, her raised eyebrows vanishing beneath her thick bangs.

Annie sighed. “It’s complicated.”

“Maybe stop fighting yourself on this. Bury the hatchet.”

“It sounds like you mean that as a gross metaphor.”

Claire spied the mini blueberry muffins cooling on the counter and crammed one into her mouth. “Oh man, that’s delicious, and yes, I do, but in a good way.”

“Gross and good are two vastly separate things.”

“It’s not like that.” At least we’re not mouth kissing. “He’s been helping out around here is all. Odd jobs. Fix-it-up stuff like repairing broken boards in the barn floor and the like.”

“Aw.” Claire crinkled her nose. “That’s adorable.”

“It’s kind.”

“Have you thanked him properly? For all that hard manual labor?” More suggestive eyebrow waggling.

Annie propped a hand on her hip, hoping to appear the picture of moral outrage. “Hey, I’m not going to thank him by—”

“Whoa, whoa, don’t get your panties in a knot. All I’m suggesting is to fix him a plate of those delicious muffins and pay a friendly neighborly visit.”


“Trust me, food is the way to a man’s heart.”

“I’m not sure I want into his heart.”

“His pants then.”


Teaser 2




Last First Kiss it the first in Lia Riley’s Brightwater series.  I couldn’t wait to see what she would do with cowboys.  Riley does not disappoint.  She continues to hook readers with memorable characters that can’t be ignored.

Sawyer is a favorite.  There was so much to like about him.  I really liked Annie and her struggle in rediscovering herself.  Sawyer and Annie are a great match, they balance each other and have you believing they belong together.

I’m looking forward to reading more in the Brightwater series.  Can’t wait to for Archer’s story.



Author Info

Lia RileyLia Riley writes offbeat New Adult and Contemporary Adult romance. After studying at the University of Montana-Missoula, she scoured the world armed only with a backpack, overconfidence and a terrible sense of direction. She counts shooting vodka with a Ukranian mechanic in Antarctica, sipping yerba mate with gauchos in Chile and swilling XXXX with stationhands in Outback Australia among her accomplishments.

A British literature fanatic at heart, Lia considers Mr. Darcy and Edward Rochester as her fictional boyfriends. Her very patient husband doesn’t mind. Much. When not torturing heroes (because c’mon, who doesn’t love a good tortured hero?), Lia herds unruly chickens, camps, beach combs, daydreams about future books, wades through a mile-high TBR pile and schemes yet another trip. Right now, Icelandic hot springs and Scottish castles sound mighty fine.
