Desert Rose by Jayne Townsley 💕 Book Tour & Smell-Good SWAG Pack Giveaway 💕 (Contemporary Romance)

Eight years ago, Sarah trusted Christopher on her 16th birthday, and it was trust misplaced. His abusive nature reared its ugly head, and Christopher was removed from her life so that she could raise their child in safety.
Eight years ago, Benjamin Reed told his girlfriend Pam that he couldn’t take any more of her physical abuse. He couldn’t handle any more betrayals. Pam either needed to get clean and commit or leave his life and never contact him again. She chose to leave and took with her the baby he knew nothing about. As Ben and Sarah cautiously work their way to trusting one another, both Christopher and Pam come crashing back into their lives.
Christopher returns to Oklahoma, professing to be a changed man and hoping to reclaim both Sarah and Amber, the child he left behind. He is done missing his daughter, and Christopher swears he is ready to make things right.
Ben and Sarah are working their way through these rocky waters when Ben gets a call from Georgia that he never expected: Pam wants to talk to him about their son, Tristan. A son that Ben didn’t know existed. Pam’s clean, sober, and had a life-changing event that has her reaching out to him for help. Can he come to Georgia so she can explain everything?
Can two people newly in love and with significant trust issues overcome their fears to give each other the room they need to deal with such overwhelming circumstances?

“Sarah, I need to let you know this now,” Crystal said gently. “Amber knows that was her ‘father.’ Her Auntie Lana told her all about him but that today was a big wonderful surprise for you, and she was keeping it a secret. Auntie Lana told her it was a good secret to keep and that it would make you happy.”

Ben watched the woman he had loved from afar for the last 15 months crumple to the ground. Sarah had her hand in her mouth, biting down for all she was worth. He guessed it was to keep from screaming. He shielded her from those in the pavilion as best he could and asked Crystal to distract Amber and make sure Amber did not see her momma like this. Darlena was kneeling on the ground next to Sarah, stroking her hair and speaking soothing words. Ben was lost. Angry and lost. How was he going to help her through this? Not by going off half-cocked and beating Christopher within an inch of his life. Not by giving Lana a verbal beat down.

Finally, he could stand it no more and bent to lift her, cradling her to his chest.

“I’m taking her to Rin’s. Will all of you follow me with Amber?” Ben asked Darlena and Adam.

“NO!” Sarah screamed and began to try to jump out of his arms. “She has to ride with me!”

“Sarah, we will keep her safe. You don’t want her to see you like this,” Adam said gently. “We’ll be right behind you. Ben, you put Sarah in your car and wait for us to load up Amber so we can follow your vehicle, and Sarah can see us in your mirrors, OK?”

“Sounds good, Mr. Ellis,” Ben replied.

“Adam. Call me Adam.”

“Sounds good, Adam.” He began walking Sarah to his Subaru, and she continued to sob quietly. 

“We’ll figure this out, Sarah. We will.”

She continued to cry.
