Irish photojournalist Grace Brennan travels the world’s war zones documenting the helpless and forgotten. After the death of her friend and colleague, Grace is shaken.

She returns to London hoping to rekindle the spark with the only man she ever loved—Scottish businessman Ian MacDonald. But he gave up his championship rowing career and dreams of Olympic gold years ago for Grace ... only for her to choose career over him.

Will life’s tides bring them back together ... or tear them apart for good this time?

MacDonald Family

Re: London Tides

To escape into other worlds.
(Marissa Yip-Young 6:01am June 12, 2015)

I like historical to learn of the past and also to leave the
present time. Lots of research you did. Good for you.
Leona Olson 11:25am June 12, 2015)

I read fiction since it transports me to other eras, realms,
locales and provides me with great enjoyment and pleasure. I
loved the novel Five Days in Skye. Memorable and
unforgettable. London Tides sounds captivating and very
Sharon Berger 11:58am June 12, 2015)

I love reading as a mini vacation from my life.
G. Bisbjerg 12:48pm June 12, 2015)

I love to read so I can live vicariously through the stories and characters in the books. Total escapism.
Nancy Reynolds 1:54pm June 12, 2015)

I enjoy reading fiction to take a break from life. London Tides sounds fabulous. I can't wait to read it.
Caryl Kane 2:50pm June 12, 2015)

I read fiction because non-fiction doesn't let me escape
to worlds I can only dream of.
Irene Menge 5:33pm June 12, 2015)

It sounds like a great read. It will be part of my summer reading.
Faye Gates 5:52pm June 12, 2015)

I read fiction to enter fantasy world! Also, its a great way to relax - much better
than watching TV!
Lily Shah 6:48pm June 12, 2015)

To escape and to go places, I'm no longer able to travel.
Nancy Luebke 6:51pm June 12, 2015)

I read fiction to live vicariously through the worlds and characters that talented authors create.
Kassandra Appel 7:38pm June 12, 2015)

why do you read fiction? To escape to another world that
has a happy ending and that makes me laugh.
Tina Ullrich 8:48pm June 12, 2015)

I read fiction because it takes me outside my life &
problems, because I can travel via the stories when I
cannot in reality.
Kay Martinez 9:32pm June 12, 2015)

I read to escape and to travel places you cannot go normaly.
Debra Guyette 5:23am June 13, 2015)

I fell in love with fiction at a young age greedily devouring
any book I could my hands on!!! Books have always been a way
to escape for me & dream of different times or places that I
couldn't normally go!!! They give me a glimpse of another life
letting me have a chance to live vicariously outside of
everyday drama in daily life!!! Thanks for the opportunity to
win & good luck to all who enter!!!:)
Andra| Dalton 12:30pm June 13, 2015)

It's fun and relaxing
Lindsey Andronak 1:44pm June 13, 2015)

I read fiction because I love the idea of choosing what is happening and therefore being able to have a happy ending.
Flora Presley 10:20pm June 13, 2015)

I love reading fiction to escape and go places I would never
be able to go just love to read thank you.
Patricia Venable 10:55pm June 13, 2015)

I read fiction because it takes me to another place and involves my mind in
something intriguing. Our brains need for us to read to keep us happy and
sane. It's also the best way to relax!
Connie Fischer 10:36am June 14, 2015)

I like my imagination to go places that I have not
Diane McMahon 11:48am June 14, 2015)

because its fun and its my escape from reality.
Sylve Takajian 4:11pm June 14, 2015)

I love reading fiction because I get to visit places I could
only dream about visiting and read about people who have
very interesting situations, be it fun, dangerous or heart
breaking. Also I love reading historical fiction too. As a
reader we can be brought back to a time and place we have
only read about in a history book, but an author makes it
come alive.
Maryann Skaritka 4:21pm June 14, 2015)

I love to get lost in the pages of a great story! I can't wait to read London Tides!!
Britney Adams 5:51pm June 14, 2015)

seems great *.*
i want to read it so bad
Soundous Nouri 6:19pm June 14, 2015)

I read fiction because I love it of course! It's like a chance to get to know
people and places that I wouldn't if I couldn't read about them. Plus being a
booklover means I'm never bored because I always have a book waiting to
be read
Nikki Fournier 5:22am June 15, 2015)

because it's fun :)
Dianne McVetty 9:16am June 15, 2015)

I read fiction because it allows me to escape from the real life for a couple
of hours. :)
Becky R 10:50am June 15, 2015)

I put myself into the stories I read ,therefore I go and do and see many things that I normally would not get to do . I guess you could call me a 'Dreamer' . Thanks for the giveaway.
Joan Thrasher 10:54am June 15, 2015)

I read fiction to "experience" life from different
perspectives. I love learning about all the research you
did for this book - eager to read it!
Valerie Stoj 11:21am June 15, 2015)

I read fiction because I find it relaxing
Shirley Younger 12:24pm June 15, 2015)

I read fiction as it transports me to another place and time
Jean Benedict 12:57pm June 15, 2015)

I love to be taken away to a different time and place and not
have to think about my real life. That's why i love fiction.
Denise Austin 3:12pm June 15, 2015)

To escape
Jean Patton 3:23pm June 15, 2015)

I love reading period. Every genre but Horror. But being able
to get emotionnally invoved in stories and visit places I'll
never really get a chance to see. And that no matter how
intense or emotional in the end it's just a story. I get to
travel, visit time periods that are long gone. I enjoyed your
post and look forward to ryeading this to see what happens
with Ian and Grace. Thank you.

I hope for a captivating plot, realistic portrayal of
characters, unforgettable novel and profound and deep
relationships as well as vivid descriptions of the locale.Your
writing is beautiful, and memorable. What a talented and
creative author. I enjoyed your book Skye.
Sharon Berger 3:30pm March 4, 2016)

I hope to get swept away and into the lives of the characters in the book I'm
reading. If I do, I know it's been a successful read. Your book sounds great.
Nancy Reynolds 4:24pm March 4, 2016)

I hope to get drawn into the book so much so that I am unable to put it
down. I love reading about romances and love stories, with no preference to
age, time period, or circumstance. I really enjoy a happy ending for the
Lily Shah 4:52pm March 4, 2016)

I hope that my protagonists realize their shortcomings and strive to
overcome them so that they can live full lives leading to HEA!

I hope it's so engrossing that I can't bear to put it down and go to sleep; cause I do read every night in bed!
Amber Mancebo 8:05pm March 5, 2016)

I hope for a sweet romance without a lot of the details ( leave some for readers imagination ). I want to be so involved with the story that I don't want to put the book down . I like it to start with a thriller or mystery then always end with the HEA.
Joan Thrasher 1:33pm March 6, 2016)

What I hope for in the book is to have a revelation about things and a HEA ending. Of course, I don't want a story when hope is an illusion.
Kai Wong 5:14pm March 6, 2016)

I dislike when a book is predictable. I need to be shocked!
Jamie Stein 1:08pm March 7, 2016)

I hope the characters are "real" with a sincere caring for
