Take the Fall #1
Marquita Valentine
Released July 21st, 2015

Fans of Abbi Glines and Katy Evans will adore Take the Fall, the first spinoff novel from Marquita Valentine’s New York Times bestselling Boys of the South series. In this emotional new romance, passions run hot as a rugged, brooding Marine rekindles an old flame.

As a teenager, Seth O’Connor went to jail for a crime he had nothing to do with. He took the fall to protect the girl he loved, but the cruel realities of prison hardened him. After doing his time, Seth shuts her out and enlists in the Marines—until his grandmother’s funeral forces him to come home and face Rowan Simmons once again. The woman she’s become puts all his high-school memories to shame, and Seth wants her more than ever. Can he be honest about why he denied her for so long?

After Seth pushed her away, Rowan swore that no man would ever hurt her again. But the boy who broke her heart has become a sexy Marine, capable of fulfilling her every desire—and now that he’s back in town, old feelings are simmering to a boil. Rowan wants to stay strong, even as her body surrenders to his expert touch. She only hopes that by taking him back, she can finally help heal the wounds that drove them apart.


7 Things About Take the Fall

1. The book was inspired by my love of muscle cars and the movie The Fast and The Furious

2. Rowan, the heroine, is the first female mechanic I’ve ever written. I loosely based her aptitude for it (and attitude) on my sister, who is a Captain in the Army National Guard.

3. It’s a second chance romance—who wouldn’t want a second chance to make things right with the one who got away (even if you were the one to send them away in the first place)?

4. The theme song for Take the Fall is HERE WITHOUT YOU (3 Doors Down)

5. Forrestville is a made up town that is (if it were real) located north of Charlotte, North Carolina. It’s not small and it’s not huge—more like just the right size for drama and love and mischief.

6. Female friendship is just as important to the heroine as her love life. The relationship between Rowan and her BFF Piper is built on trust and loyalty—something Rowan used to have with Seth.

7. Handwritten letters play a very important role in Rowan and Seth finding their happily ever after. Even while our society becomes more and more reliant on technology, it’s still amazing what a personal note can do and the feelings it can evoke.
