Love to Believe

amazon barnes & noble Goodreads

A woman in a man’s world…

CPA Rebecca Walker wields a hammer and saw with skill, but it’s like fighting tooth and nail to prove to her chauvinistic father that she’s capable of managing the family construction business. Romance is a luxury Rebecca can’t afford.

A man with secrets…

Thanks to his past, romance isn’t in Sean Kinkaid’s future, so when Rebecca proposes ‘friends with benefits,’ Sean agrees. It’s the perfect scenario until love sneaks in—and Sean’s secrets tear them apart.


But Rebecca has a secret too, one she fears Sean will never accept. It will take intervention from an unlikely source to convince these two lovers they have the one thing neither of them ever expected to find…a love to believe.

Hott Review of Love to Believe:

Love to Believe is going to go down as one of my top rated books. Not only is it a great romance but it’s a also great picture of how we can trap ourselves into things we don’t or couldn’t see ourselves doing before. I really, really love the characters, Rebecca and Sean are pretty amazing and very easy to relate to.

Although this is the second book in the series I did not at any point feel like I needed to have read the previous book in order to understand this one, however I really enjoy Lisa Ricard Claro’s writing. There’s something about how she writes that makes me want to read everything she has ever written or will write. There aren’t any loose ends in Love to Believe and there’s nothing hanging I feel like I get a complete story and I’m craving more without feeling like I was missing anything.

Unlike the first novel in this series, Love to Believe does not focus on any periphery characters it’s about these two and for the most part very few other people intrude on their relationship except where necessary. Which just gives us a clearer picture of Sean and Rebecca and makes us love them even more.

Author Bio:

Lisa Ricard ClaroLisa Ricard Claro is an editor, award-winning author, and Pushcart Prize nominee with published articles and stories spanning multiple media. She resides in Georgia with her husband of more than three decades and counting, is mother to three (a ruggedly handsome son and two stunningly beautiful daughters—​Lisa might be a little biased), and dreams of one day living at the beach. Seriously dreams of it. As in, she’s already decorating her dream beach house. In addition to an array of sand dollars and seashells, she keeps a framed sign hanging in her office: Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses Welcome Here.

Lisa is also a lover of dogs and cats, and has a heart for rescues. This is why you will find a rescued pet companion in every one of her books. Sometimes they are part of the story line (Pirate the dog, in Love Built to Last), and sometimes they’re already ensconced in their forever home with one of Lisa’s characters (Pavarotti the cat, in Love to Win). As you read Lisa’s books, watch for the rescues!

While Lisa is a fan of storytelling in all genres, Romance is her favorite because she believes everyone deserves love and a happily-ever-after. But she adores a little mystery now and then, too, so keep an eye out for Lisa’s authorship of a whodunit one of these days soon.
