Read The Mighty Anchor now!

A stoic force to be reckoned with.
The steady rock on which England is destined to lean.
Everyone’s reliable mate, at the ready to defend when called upon.

To the world, Vance Morley is the next great keeper for the Rogue Football Club, biding his time at the academy. The definition of tall, dark and handsome, his quiet confidence and mysterious persona only draw the public in. He’s their mighty anchor, both on and off the pitch.

But when it comes to the one woman he claims to love, he conveniently vanishes at the exact moment I need him. The first time I saw Vance, he was a ten-year-old standing on his lawn across the street. The first time he kissed me, we were sixteen and sitting on the very shores we grew up on. We crashed into each other like waves in a storm, fated to destroy everything in our paths. Including each other.

The first time Vance saw our son, by serendipitous accident, my little boy had already lived the first year of his life. And instantly, the man who chose football over me wants to have it all. There is no way I can trust his declarations of love and fatherhood, especially when I’m set to marry another man.

We’re a new game, one to occupy him until the world stage beckons. But the more I try to tell myself he’s not the one, the more Vance’s efforts to win us back increase.

How can I guard my heart against seeing my son with his father?
Can Vance really sacrifice his dreams in the name of love and family?
Is there a way that everyone else’s safe harbor can finally become mine too?

Johnaka's Review 
“Can he have both football and the girl? 5 stars”

 Vance had wanted the girl who moved in across the street from his parents from the moment he meant her. But he was focused on his love of the game. When he finally got the girl too, he didn’t want to share her with anyone else. He wanted it to be just them. But you know what they say about secret relationships, they soon explode because of the secrecy. Will he be able to get his girl back and accomplish his dream? Or has his dream changed?

Lara wanted Vance from day one. Then she had him and she felt like his dirty little secret. When things came to a head she never expected to find out she was pregnant. But she did. She knew he would find out one day she just didn’t expect for it to be now. Will she be able to keep her feelings out of it where Vance is concerned or will she and her son both fall in love with the Mighty Anchor?

Aarons…ugh she broke my heart and repaired it with The Mighty Anchor. There was no denying that Lara and Vance belonged together. The chemistry lit up the pages. But that doesn’t mean it will work out. I loved seeing how Vance changed. He was always serious but his focus shifted towards the better. I loved seeing the other couples from the Rogue Academy books. I hope you enjoy The Mighty Anchor as much as I did. And I really, really hope Aarons will give us more British romances in the future.
