Sara Ohlin is an author I discovered through our publisher, Totally Bound Publishing, and I’m so glad I got to meet her and read her wonderful work. She writes great contemporary romances, full of emotional sexy moments – my favourite kind of read!
I’m so pleased to share that you can now preorder her latest book, Promising Love. It releases November 9 with Totally Bound Publishing.
Ruby is the only woman Lachlan has ever loved—from afar. When she makes a pass, he finally admits he’s wanted her for a long time. He leaves her that night with three promises—a kiss, a special connection between them and an epic tomorrow.
Unfortunately, when tomorrow arrives and Lachlan is smacked with the knowledge that she’s already in a relationship with two men, he feels he has nothing to offer her.
His day gets worse when his addict father is on his doorstep again, demanding money. The thought that he could end up sick and miserable like his father eats at Lachlan, making him focus on what has never let him down, his successful pub in the burgeoning Corvallis neighborhood.
Learning that Ruby is not taken, Lachlan finally goes all out to win her back. With his heartfelt apology, it’s easy for Ruby to forgive him—she believes in joy, in romance, in happy ever after. What she never expected was how vulnerable Lachlan could make her feel.
Can their love withstand life-shattering events to lead them into a beautiful future?
Bio & Links
Puget Sound based writer, Sara Ohlin is a mom, wannabe photographer, obsessive reader, ridiculous foodie, and the author of the contemporary romance novels, Handling the Rancher, Salvaging Love, Seducing the Dragonfly, and Igniting Love.
She has over fifteen years of creative non-fiction and memoir writing experience, and you can find her essays at Anderbo.com, Feminine Collective, Mothers Always Write, Her View from Home, Under the Gum Tree, and in anthologies such as Are We Feeling Better Yet? Women Speak about Healthcare in America, Take Care: Tales, Tips, & Love from Women Caregivers, and Chicken Soup for the Soul.
Although she’s the author of many essays about life, grief, motherhood and the connections we make through delicious food and shared meals, Sara loves creating imaginary worlds with tight-knit communities in her romance novels. She credits her mother, Mary, Nora Roberts and Rosamunde Pilcher for her love of romance.
If she’s not reading or writing, you will most likely find her in the kitchen creating scrumptious meals with her two kids and amazing husband, or perhaps cooking up her next love story. She once met a person who both “didn’t read books” and wasn’t “that into food” and it nearly broke her heart.

Ruby adjusted herself in the truck and filled her mouth with a handful of popcorn, waving her finger at him when she was finished. “You are dangerous, Lachlan MacGregory. When you kiss me, I forget everything, where I am, who else is here. How do you do that?”
He took a bite of hot dog then handed it to her. She had the right idea, eating. If his mouth was full of food, he couldn’t maul her. After another sip of chocolate, he said, “It’s the same for me, Ruby. Now that I have you, now that I intend to make you mine, you’re all I see. You zap my entire brain.”
I said too much too soon. He did intend to make her his, but ah…maybe he could have finessed that a little better or waited say a month or so.
“You intend to make me yours?” There was such hope lacing her words that he wondered if maybe it wasn’t too soon. What to do? He’d never felt a connection with anyone the way he did with Ruby. Being without her, hurting her, had been agony. He might as well have been a robot, dead inside. When she let her beauty shine on him, he felt whole and powerful and alive. No sense wasting a second of our time. Ruby wasn’t the kind of person a man should be wishy-washy about. And that was good, because Lachlan didn’t consider himself a flakey person, especially when it came to Ruby Naylor.
He nodded and laced their fingers together. “Give me a chance to prove to you that I can be worthy of you, and hell yes, if that’s what you want.”
She nodded and her entire face was like a sunbeam. “I want that too, Lachlan.”
She made it difficult for him to swallow when she regarded him like that—his heart was thumping all the way in his throat, trying to break free. “Good.” He forced the word out and gave her hand a squeeze. “Now, I’ll try to keep my lips off you while we watch a bit of the kids’ game and get a bit chilly. Part one of our date.”
“Get a bit chilly? And what’s part two of this delicious date you’ve planned for us?”
He trailed his finger over her flushed skin. “Warm each other up.”
