Not your mother’s romance

Sunset at Lake Crane

Love, truth, and pain lie buried beneath the Sunset at Lake Crane . . .

Faced with a blackmailer’s ultimatum, 19-year-old Erynn O’Neal protects her lover by disappearing from his life. Brokenhearted, she vanishes—and takes a life-altering secret with her.

Grant Alexander crossed the line when he took former student, Erynn O’Neal, as his own a mere two months after her high school graduation. Knowing the truth revealed would shred his career and reputation, he accepted the risks in exchange for the promise of a lifelong love. A heartbeat later, Erynn abandoned him without a word.

Years pass as Grant and Erynn lead separate lives–he as a reclusive author, she as an ambitious reporter. Yet, despite scarred hearts, true love lost is never forgotten, and Grant devises a way to draw Erynn back into his sphere of passion. Their aching hearts begin a tentative détente, but old jealousies flare, devastating truths come to light, and Grant and Erynn must resurrect and overcome the painful secrets of the past if they’re ever to love again.



What readers are saying…

“HOLY MAC!! I lOVE this book so much! Going into this book, I was clueless on what to expect. I noticed that beautiful cover, read the synopsis and decided to give it a try. Never in a million years did I think I would love it this much! I had a huge book hangover after I finished this book. Casey Hagen had me laughing, snot sobbing crying and everything else in between as I read this story. I loved how she stirred all my emotions with just one story. So stinking good. Casey Hagen now has a new stalker! I need more from her now!”

“WOW! This story is gut wrenching painful. The character development is great, with secondaries that I would be super happy to read their own stories. An emotional and well written story line flows well. Casey Hagen does a great job with all the layers unraveling slowly, and her talented writing style had me feeling the characters pain physically. I didn’t see the big twist coming which made the big reveal awesome! The chemistry is fierce, leading to some hot sexy scenes, and I wanted so much more.”

“This was a very mellow read, that consumed me. It was heartbreaking, sweet and intense. Erynn and Grant were sweet and sexy together. These two are very much in love with such forgiving hearts. I really enjoyed reading about their past, their love, their heartache and forgiveness. Such a beautiful story.”

“Absolutely, positively loved this book from beginning to end! I couldn’t put it down.
It has passion, suspense, intimate moments, heated unhappy moments, and a sad look back in history.
A must buy!!”
