“My name is Scarlet Stone, and my biggest fear is that someday I will find what I want most in life, and it will be impossible to steal.” What happens when life just stops? When one moment makes you question your entire existence? Scarlet Stone is a third-generation thief who has everything: a doting fiancé, a spacious London flat, and a legitimate job offer. In a single breath, everything becomes nothing, and she finds herself on a plane to Savannah, Georgia in search of the meaning of life. After securing a six-month lease for a beachfront house on Tybee Island, Scarlet changes the way she looks, thinks, eats—basically her entire outlook on life. She needs peace, but what she gets is a housemate who looks like Thor, acts like a warden, and smells her proximity like a Bloodhound. Theodore Reed is a carpenter and perfectionist with a body built of steel, a black, hollow heart, and a hunger for revenge. He doesn’t like company, girly-smelling crap, and British accents. He resents every breath she takes. She’s fascinated by his every move. In time, they discover their coexistence is toxic, their physical attraction is electric, the secrets they keep mean the difference between life and death, and the only truth they share is that everything is a lie. “Over eighty-five percent of the world’s population believes in a higher power, yet, very few people believe in miracles.” Do you believe?

JEWEL E. ANN is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE authors. Every single book of hers that I have read has completely rocked my world and played my heart. She does this really sneaky thing, where you think that you have a clue what you’re getting yourself into going in to the book. And then there you are—jaw on the floor, heart beating out of your chest, tears streaming down your face… lost in love lost in the Jewel E. Ann’s world once again. Not knowing which way is up, not knowing how to find your way back down, and never EVER wanting it to end.
SCARLET STONE was SUCH a beautiful, brilliantly written book, packed SO full of LOVE and LIFE and HEART and SOUL. She hooked me from page one. Entertwined with a beautiful story of finding love when you LEAST expect it, Scarlet Stone tells the story of this amazing love affair with LIFE! Scarlet finds joy and beauty and love within herself and its such an empowering thing to experience with her. This book an epic journey and while at some points I thought it would break me, I absolutely loved every second of it!
I can not recommend this story strongly enough. Like every book I have read by Jewel E. Ann, it was absolute perfection.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Jewel is a free-spirited romance junkie with a quirky sense of humor. With 10 years of flossing lectures under belt, she took early retirement from her dental hygiene career to stay home with her three awesome boys and manage the family business. After her best friend of nearly 30 years suggested a few books from the contemporary Romance genre, Jewel was hooked. Devouring two and three books a week but still craving more, she decided to practice sustainable reading, AKA writing. When she’s not donning her cape and saving the planet one tree a a time, she enjoys yoga with friends, good food with family, rock climbing with her kids, watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, and of course . . .heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, panty-scorching novels.
