How do you heal a broken heart? Money is no comfort to real estate heir Soren Lund when he loses the woman he loves, so he flees his privileged life in London for a sleepy Costa Rican fishing village. There he finds peace, purpose, and the passion to follow his dreams, until a surfing accident threatens to end it all. Rescued from Death's door by the beautiful and mysterious Elena Sol, Soren lets her into his heart while trying to break down the walls around hers. And when a ghost from Elena's past threatens their new happiness, he knows he must fight, or risk finding himself alone and adrift once more. BECKONED: slow burn, second chance romance inspired by food, travel, and Jane Austen. Over 300 reviews with 4.4+star average! Part 5 in a complete 6-part series. "Good heavens, Ms. Aviva Vaughn has done it again! I believe this has to be my favorite out of the whole series. I was distraught at the end of Book 4. Overall, Irate this book 5 out of 5 stars! As always, Aviva Vaughn's story is filled with colorful characters, a little Jane Austen inspiration, good food and wonderful music!" ~Amanda H., California, USA, 5-star review "These quotes are just some of the reasons why I've utterly come to love Aviva, her unpredictability,descriptions and words are utterly brilliantly used and described to the best they can be. Personally, I do love an Author who plants the seeds of the images they want you as a reader to imagine and continue to feed it and watch it grow.Not many authors can continue to pull it off with each book either, and she is definitely one of them. ·"Her hair was just as lustrous as always, rendered more raven bythe darkness of the room" ·"As if a perfect, Windsor knot assured one of some measure ofsuccess" ·"He laughed as he skimmed the surface of the water, exhilaratedby the swift weightlessness of the movement." ~Kiera, 5-star review "In no time I was completely engrossed in the tale of Soren's next chapter in life. Although most of the characters are different, this story was much like the others, taking you on a geographical, cultural and gastronomic adventure, with a side of steamy sex, this time in a surf town in Costa Rica." ~Kim, 5-star review "I have loved this series so much, devouring every word and I was so conflicted seeing Angela and Kieran together and loving how great they were together, but feeling so bad for Soren at the same time. I wasn't really sure how Ms. Vaughn was going to approach this story, what direction she'd take- so my mind was reeling with the possibilities. I did have high expectations,because Soren really needed something good to happen to him to make up for so much heartache. I loved what Ms. Vaughn did with this story and it was every bit as good as I had hoped it would be. Even though I knew Ms. Vaughn wouldn't make it easy for Soren and would make him 'work for his happiness. I also love how much more of Soren we get to see. Even after 4 other books, there was still quite substantial character growth and development."~Angela, 5-star review "Aviva Vaughn writes a lot like the classics, Jane Austen especially. She loves her slow burn and realistic writing. I personally do as well. It is believable and gripping. I often feel as if I am sitting right there in the same room as the characters, or on the beaches of Costa Rica. I can taste the foods, and smell the saltwater on the air. Her story lines are just as realistic and this is ever present in the story of Soren." ~Liz, USA, 5-star review "It hooked me in from the very beginning and I didn't want to put it down until I had read the final page. I love how no matter what the scene is the author is so descriptive that you feel like you are right there with the characters. This is a wonderfully written story that I would highly recommend reading." ~Laura, USA, 5-star review "I have been so looking forward to reading the next instalment in this series. I have truly fallen in love with the characters in the story and the author. Her writing completely absorbs me into the amazing world that she had created. Her beautiful descriptions of the settings for the stories are a huge plus for these books - her attention to detail is amazing. I've tried not to have a favourite book in this series because I have loved them all so far but I think this one may just take the top spot. I absolutely loved it and I really cannot recommend the book and the series enough!" ~Katie, 5-star review FROM THE AUTHOR ?Dearest Reader, I wrote BECKONED for many reasons, but first and foremost, I wrote it to feature the kind of people I know: diverse, smart, complicated men and women. My heroines are strong and educated, and my heroes are polite and respectful. As an avid reader, I wanted to see characters that looked like me and my friends and reflect the world I want to see. I also wanted to write a beautiful book. I consider BECKONED to be a modern story told in an old-fashion way with lots of metaphors and beautiful phrases, and where the sex is explicit but also elegant. So if you are a Word Nerd like me, then you will love BECKONED! If you choose to embark on this journey with me, you--and your taste buds--will get to visit London, Barcelona, Bath, Los Angeles, Honolulu, Costa Rica, New Zealand, and Copenhagen. It will be a fun--and delicious--ride! There are even recipes in some of the books as well as soundtracks to give you a multi-sensory experience. BECKONED is a single story in six parts and should be read in order. The intimacy is steamy, but it is slooooooow burn and is distributed throughout the books because of how the couples' relationships change and deepen. Birthing BECKONED has truly been a labor of love, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it! BUCKLE UP and enjoy the journey. Wishing you love and romance, ~Aviva
