Everyone wants to tear them apart. But he's not giving up without a fight.

The last thing Sara Flannigan needs is a man in her life. When she returns to her hometown, she vows to create a happy life for her son and to rebuild her life after a painful divorce. Yet when she meets her son’s new doctor, she can’t deny the spark of attraction that heats between them.

The problem?

He’s Harrison Thornton, the oldest son of the illustrious Thornton family. His family would never accept a woman like Sara, a woman who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. She tries to ignore the whispers of her past, but she soon realizes secrets can never stay hidden for long.

Especially from the man claiming her wounded heart.

Growing up in the rich and powerful Thornton family, Harrison has lived a charmed life. A renowned physician, the last thing he expects is to desire the mother of one of his patients. Sara is beautiful and intelligent, and she’s completely devoted to her son, something that only deepens his attraction to her.

He doesn't want a single night of passion, though: he wants forever. Yet there are forces at work and people determined to tear them apart. Even Sara turns from him, certain she's unworthy. Harrison refuses to let Sara slip away, and soon, he’s fighting the greatest battle of all.

The battle to win the heart of the woman he loves.


  • Wonderful

    By Western1985t
    This is a wonderful book that has highs and lows. While the main character is portrayed as strong, it is a more realistic view of the women that society always seems as strong who never waver. That’s not real life. What is real life? The way this writer portrayed this strong woman who in private and with those she is most comfortable with fights her battles and deals with her emotions. A great start to a series...

  • Sara and Harrison

    By madukes963
    This is/was a very good read. It's full of love, near deaf illnesses ,revenge, betrayal, embarrassment, lies, tight knit families, and being happy no matter what others think. The next book will be something to read on a nice day while sipping a nice drink and fantasizing about your own life.

  • Romantic family drama

    By Nettie1114
    Iris Morland in The Nearness of You (The Thorntons Book 1) wrote a heartwarming story of Sara Flannigan a divorced women from the wrong side of the track who returns to her hometown to help her estranged recuperating alcoholic mother. She meets Dr. Harrison Throrton her son's oncologist and they are instantly attracted to each other. The story Iris Morland wrote is a romantic emotional family drama and well worth your time to read. I read the Nearness of You (The Thorntons Book 1) twice. Once for myself, then this time as an ARC and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
  • Strong and lovely characters, You’ll fall in love every time

    By Somebody_famous
    I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. One thing I can say about the author is how strong she is with her writing. Not only does she make her characters strong, but what weakness she does show gives them only gives them humanity as well making them relatable. From intense mothers who lord over their children to one mother just trying to make sure her son gets the life he deserves, I couldn’t put the book down. I instantly bought the rest of the series and preordered the rest. If you love a good romance with a strong storyline, this is the book for you. It’s not just about the love that’s made but how that love builds and grows. I can’t wait to read anything this author puts out and look forward to Till There Was You!

  • Poor

    By straighttalker198
    The whole pity party for the girl raised in poverty got old fast. This book was twice as long as it could've and should've been. Not very mixed as far as dialogue. The girl kept proclaiming she wasn't strong and she wasn't. All this girl did was whine about all her problems. The story got old in 10 pages. Very very very very very very very very redundant!!!

  • A Believable Racy Romance-the Thorntorns don't disappoint

    By Gw doll
    After reading so many trashy romances, finally a gem! The writing is tastefully steamy, and the characters and dynamic of the Thornton family is refreshingly believable. Actually looking forward to reading more about the Thornton love adventures.
