The Light Between Us
For twenty-something Boston school teacher Ruth, she's gotten by just fine on playing it safe, thank you very much. But now her risk-free life and nice-girl demeanor are leaving her increasingly heartsick. So when she meets bad boy Derek, she's willing to overlook her “no romance” rule and give him a chance to prove her fears wrong. Because he, also, is plagued by a sense of ennui and pointlessness, wanting to change his fast-and-loose living but not knowing how. Neither can deny the inexplicable, illogical attraction drawing them together, and they are hard-pressed to resist it. But what will their unlikely relationship cost, and who will be caught in the crossfire?
The Light Between Us is a sassy and sensual romp from Poppy Parkes. Part love story, part comedy of errors, part and coming of age tale, The Light Between Us is a delicious read for fans of the romance and new adult genres alike.

Reader Praise for The Light Between Us:
"This was such a lovely read. I absolutely adore this book. It is a comedy of errors that leads to the ultimate whirlwind romance that should never be."
"This book is a touching love story that reminds us that love knows no time, it has no boundaries and it CAN happen when you least expect it."
"It is billed as a ‘romance’, which scared me, because my thoughts immediately went to Jilly Cooper or 50 Shades of overly-explicitness and badly-written dialogue, but I was relieved that it wasn’t like that. In fact, die-hard romance fans might think there is too little sex in there, but I thought it was right: tastefully tantalising. Perhaps this is romance for non-romance-readers? I really enjoyed the characterisation, and particularly liked the fact that it was a love story where the heroine was both quietly introverted and feisty. Poppy writes redemption and forgiveness really well, and I thoroughly enjoyed this light and well-written love story. It’s cheap as an e-book, and would make excellent beach reading for the summer."
"One of the best, well written romance novels I've read. It wasn't predictable and left me guessing how it would end. I'm a follower of the authors blog and look forward to her next novel!!"
