Welcome to Eternity Springs, Colorado where the small knit community, less then 900, is looking for ways to try to save their beloved town from financial ruin.


Talented architect Gabriel Callahan has lost everything that has ever mattered in his life. Seeking solitude he heads to a friendís secluded estate high up in the Colorado Mountains. Deciding to take a cowardís way out, Gabe heads to the top of the mountain with a loaded Glock, and is about to end his misery when heís knocked down by a slobbering beast!


Dr. Nicole Sullivan is Eternity Springsí veterinarian, and pretty much the isolated areaís only source of medical attention. After her marriage ended, and her taste for the big city life soured, Nic headed home to Eternity Springs. When the handsome aloof Gabe arrives at her office with the stray boxer, Nic decides she will bring this wounded soul back to the world of the living, first with the dog, and then with a renovation project. Gabe still keeps the walls in place around himself, until one lonely night turns into a passionate explosion between him and Nic, having an unexpected result!


Emily March aka Geralyn Dawson ventures out in an innovative direction of writing with the first in a new series of books, Angelís Rest. Featuring Gabriel (John) Callahan, of her Callahan brothers of Brazos Bend books, this story doesnít give the reader the hopeful reunion that would be expected. Instead we meet Gabe, who can be a bit unlikable at times, who is battling many demons, the biggest his grief on losing his wife and son. When Nic opens her own embittered heart to Gabe, he is not receptive to the love she wants to give him. Reminiscent of Debbie Macomberís tales, Emily March weaves a little bit of divine intervention, and like a good meal of comfort food Angelís Rest satisfies!
