Rescue Me
Farrah Rochon

Multicultural Romance | Romance

Alexander Holmes is the last of the Holmes brothers that has yet to meet and marry the woman of his dreams. Correction: he's already done that, and it turned out to be his worst nightmare. The best thing to come out of his failed marriage was his daughter, Jasmine. She is his life and he's content to pore all of his love into her.

When a construction site accident forces Alex to take a break from his business, around the same time that Jasmine begins acting out at school, he decides to volunteer his time and get more involved in his daughter's education during his recuperation. He doesn't count on meeting Renee Moore, the school's Special Projects Coordinator.

Sparks begin flying between Alex and Renee from their first encounter over an uncooperative school copy machine. Renee, carrying her own relationship battle scars, isn't sure whether she can—or should—trust Alex.

Farrah Rochon's RESCUE ME is the third book in the Holmes family trilogy, and for my money, the best of the three. Even if this is your first book in the series, you'll come away with a feel for a post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans that the author clearly loves, and a whole new group of friends in Alex, Eli, Toby, Mama Holmes and the rest of the cast of characters. RESCUE ME brings the reader more of Ms. Rochon's deft storytelling skills, including another look at Margo Holmes, family matriarch who has secrets of her own, while wrapping up the remaining brother in a captivating story of love that goes beyond past pain or blood ties.

Learn more about Rescue Me


His two younger brothers have both taken the plunge, and now the entire Holmes clan has their sights set on him. But Alexander Holmes is no fool for love. He’s been there, done that, and all he has to show for it is a whole lot of scars and one beautiful little girl. Unfortunately, his precious angel has become a terror in the classroom, so Alex has no choice but to trade in his tool belt for a text book.

And sometimes it needs a big shove…
When Renee Moore sees the new parent volunteer waging war against the school copy machine, she can’t help admiring his obvious…assets. After all, there’s nothing sexier than a parent who’s involved—especially when he has a rock-solid body and a voice that makes her weak in the knees. Even more important, underneath that hot exterior is a man she knows she can trust and respect. All she has to do is convince him to give love a second chance.
