Release Day: Till There Was You by Wade & Lilliana Anderson



Wade & Lilliana Anderson

Haunted by his past, Lincoln Ryan abandoned his life in Australia, retreating halfway around the world to the town of Newsham, a place as remote and cold as his heart had become. It suited him perfectly—for a while.

When a fateful event forces him to help out local bar owner, Lily Colbert, Linc finds his life of solitude is suddenly flooded with the light and hope of one very stubborn woman. Slowly his walls begin to crumble as he lets the enigmatic Lily in. But when Linc and Lily dance perilously close to the ‘L’ word, his secrets re-emerge, rocking him to the core as he tries once again to outrun his past.

However, the thing about the past is that it always seems to follow you around, and for Linc, hiding may not be an option anymore. Not when he has Lily. Not when he might finally have a future….

Till There Was You is the debut novel by Wade Anderson, co-written with his wife, Lilliana Anderson (author of Drawn and 47 Things).

“I’m so sorry,” she murmured against his neck as her arms squeezed him tight. Swept away with his outpouring of emotion, she felt his loss as deeply as she’d felt her own many years ago. It was horrible for her to lose her parents, and the idea of losing a spouse put an ache in her chest that caused her eyes to burn with sorrow.

His chest shook. “I’m so sorry,” she whispered again, this time pressing her lips against the pulse point on his neck. She wanted to take his sorrow away. She wanted to ease it somehow. Her lips kissed his neck again, moving to his adam’s apple, where she felt him gulp and still.
Pulling her away from him, his dark eyes looked down on her, swirling with storm clouds of emotion as his brow knitted tightly together.

“I’m sorry,” she said again, although this time, she was apologizing for being so bold. She was simply doing what felt right in the moment, but now she thought she’d made a terrible mistake.
Lifting his hands from her arms, he cupped either side of her face, his eyes seeming to take in every detail before he wiped away the tears that streaked down her cheeks.
Her breath shuddered at his touch, catching in her chest as he lowered his mouth to hers. He hesitated for split second then took her mouth in his in a kiss that was anything but gentle. It was ferocious—full of need, hunger, and desperate emotion.

Wrapping her arms around his neck, Lily rose on her toes and met his voracity with a need of her own. She’d be lying to herself if she said she hadn’t been imagining this moment since the first time she saw him, and the reality of it did not disappoint. Every time his tongue slid demandingly against hers, a bolt of lust traveled to her core.

Moaning as she melted against him, Lily lost herself to the need of his mouth and heat of his touch as his hands moved down her body and gripped her ass, pulling her against him. Feeling his hardness pressing to her stomach, she reached between them and began undoing the buttons of his shirt.
The husky decided it was the perfect moment to start howling.
Gripping her arm at the wrist, Linc tore his mouth from hers, his wide eyes still filled with confusion, but also mixed with pure lust. “You should go,” he rasped out, releasing her hand and stepping back as he pulled his shirt closed. Lily caught a glimpse of what looked like scaring as he hurried to fasten his buttons with shaking hands.

“Linc,” she started, wanting to tell him it was okay. They could wait to do anything more until he was ready, but he didn’t give her the chance.

“Just go,” he demanded, his eyes flashing as he raised his voice.
