The Candle Palace was such a nice addition to the Jamison Valley series. I was a bit surprised that we were getting a novella, though at the same time extremely happy it was Milo’s story.
After Milo’s tragic work accident that left him severely burned, he ends up in Sara’s care. Now Sara cares for all her patients, but what she feels for Milo during his stay, that has never happened before.
It felt like fate brought these two together. They met at a time when they needed each other. What starts off as a nice friendship, soon leads to more heavy feelings, and such sweet love.
There were some obstacles of course, nurse and patient are not allowed to hook up apparently, and some other lovely hospital drama. Still this story was so sweet, a fast read that will leave you with a content smile.

The Candle Palace
(Jamison Valley #6)
Sometimes a single flame can ignite a love that lasts a lifetime.
Milo Phillips knows the meaning of pain. Suffering through the most intense physical agony of his life, he’s confined to a hospital bed to bear it alone. More than once, he wishes he’d died in the explosion that melted and mangled his skin. Darkness consumes him, snuffing all the joy in his life and leaving an empty hole in its place.
But one day, a flicker of light sneaks into his hospital room, driving away some of the hopelessness. For the first time in months, pain isn’t all he feels.
The flicker’s name is Sara Foster, his new nurse. Milo just hopes that Sara can see past his scars. Because underneath, his heart has begun beating again just for her.
