Title: Archer's Voice
Author: Mia Sheridan
When Bree Prescott arrives in the sleepy, lakeside town of Pelion, Maine, she hopes against hope that this is the place where she will finally find the peace she so desperately seeks. On her first day there, her life collides with Archer Hale, an isolated man who holds a secret agony of his own. A man no one else sees.
Archer's Voice is the story of a woman chained to the memory of one horrifying night and the man whose love is the key to her freedom. It is the story of a silent man who lives with an excruciating wound and the woman who helps him find his voice. It is the story of suffering, fate, and the transformative power of love.
Archer's Voice is a stand-alone book by Mia Sheridan. This is a beautiful love story about two people fighting their own internal battles. The heroine, Bree, spontaneously leaves her home to get away from life. She finds a lakeside cottage in Maine to rent, but doesn't know how long she will stay. Soon after arriving in this small town, she runs into a mysterious man. He has a long, unkempt beard (and hair) – and he doesn't speak – but yet Bree feels instantly drawn to him.
Archer has lived a horrible, lonely life. Not only that, he was shot in the neck as a child and cannot speak. He is a hermit and barely leaves his house. He isn't able to communicate with anyone in town, so all the residents don't really have anything to do with him. Bree is the first person to barge into his life wanting to know more about him.
I thought Bree was a little too forward and pushy with him in the beginning. Yet, I think he needed that because his walls were built up so high and he wasn't letting anyone in. She gradually chipped down those walls until she got to know what a wonderful person Archer is. Both of these characters are wonderful in their own way. Also, Bree already knew sign language because her father was deaf – so things just worked out perfectly.
Archer has lived such an odd lifestyle for so long, that there were so many things he hadn't experienced. He hadn't experienced affection since he was a little boy, so a relationship with a woman was hard for him. He was definitely inexperienced in that category, but it was fun seeing him try new things. This book is definitely steamy and will make you swoon. I loved seeing all the great changes that Bree brings out in Archer. He definitely grows as a person. These two are just perfect for each other. If you love romances, this book is a must read!
