Launch – Author Interview
What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it?
I’ll answer with a quote from the book. “Your heart isn’t a crystal ball, Jaclyn. It can’t see into the past or predict the future. It can’t tell you everything about someone. Only time and experience can do that. Falling in love is a leap of faith. Sometimes you stick the landing, sometimes you stumble, and sometimes you fall flat on your face.”
Rockin’ Book Reviews – Review
“This is such a heart-warming love story. . . . The characters are all well-developed. It is easy to feel their emotions. . . . I highly recommend this book to all those who enjoy a great clean romance.”
underneath the covers – Excerpt
He was passing the Philly Cheesesteak food truck when he heard a high pitched voice say, “My feet hurt, Jaclyn.”
For Brooks, there was only one Jaclyn. He stopped abruptly, his head swiveling in that direction. His narrowed gaze locked with the curious glance of the girl he’d never been able to forget. His brain belatedly replaced the word girl with woman. A woman who was even more beautiful than he remembered. His last coherent thought was a question: did the blonde hair spilling over her shoulders still smell like strawberries?

The door to Brooks’ room stood open. He was sitting in the chair by the bed, obviously waiting on her. He was dressed except for his tie, which he couldn’t put on without help. Clothes might make the man, but in his case, the man made the clothes.
“Hello, handsome,” she said, walking over to stand in front of him.
He smiled a little at her comment, but his attention was focused almost entirely on her appearance. The black sheath dress and ankle strap sandals were a world away from what he’d seen her in lately.

Jaclyn scanned the list of entrees. The pork chop with apple-ginger chutney sounded good. So did the tuna-stuffed tomatoes. Too bad she’d already eaten lunch. She looked up and found Brooks watching her with a hard-to-define expression on his face.
“Am I taking too long?” she asked.
“Not at all. I was thinking how strange life is.”
She put down the menu. “How so?”
“The way it brings people together after long periods of time.”
Katie’s Clean Book Collection – Review
“I love a story that can take two characters and mesh them into a perfect harmonious duet. Their personalities and strengths complement each other in ways that merge them into an ultimate and lovable couple. Life isn’t easy and the struggles these two wade through are both realistic and heart-engaging. My sympathy chord was struck, and I found this story uplifting and sweet, to go along with that tinge of heartache.”

“I see some bowls on the floor over here,” she said. “Do you have a dog?”
He motioned her to join him. “Come look out the window. Loki can hear us. He’s trying to figure out who’s in here with me.”
She joined him at the sink. When she stood on tiptoe to peer over the window sill, she pressed her hand lightly on his shoulder for support. A delightful warmth fanned out inside Brooks, heating his blood and sending his pulse rate soaring.
“What a beautiful dog! Or should I say handsome, since he’s a boy? I guess it doesn’t matter. What breed is he? A German Shepard?”
Reading Is My SuperPower – Review
“The writing in A Love So True is easy to follow with a smooth flow and steady pace, and the characters are layered and engaging. From the prologue ‘meet cute’ to their reuniting unexpectedly 14 years later & everything that unfolds from there, the story holds your attention and keeps you invested in the outcome. While this is the 3rd in a series, it’s ok to stand alone – though you’ll meet some characters in this book whose stories you’ll want to discover in the previous books. A light read that will make your heart smile!”
Katherinelovesbooks – Review
“This was such a sweet, heart warming story that made me feel all joys of love. I loved both the protagonist especially Brooks, he made me swoon over his caring and charming personality. Jacyln’s character was well done as well, her generosity and lovable traits complemented Brooks’s character beautifully. . . . A love so true was a delightful read and I’d definitely recommend it. . .”
Hallie Reads – Excerpt
Brooks was holding out her windbreaker. “Let’s get a move on. We’re losing daylight.”
“I’m not worried,” she told him as she slid her arms into the sleeves. “I’ve got Hulk and Loki with me.”
He lifted her hair out of the way and gently swung her around to face him. “Hulk, huh?” he asked, his fingers deftly zipping up the jacket. “So I’m all brawn and no brains. Is that what you’re saying?”
Red Headed Book Lady – Review
“This was a new to me author whose story I really enjoyed.
It is also the first in a new series too!
The author has done an excellent job in making her characters realistic and believable.
A wonderful can’t put down book until you finish it.”

Adventures of a Travelers Wife – Review
“I enjoyed this clean, girl next door, high school sweethearts type story. It is my first time reading a book by Delaney Cameron, and I liked her writing style 😊. It is the third book in her Billionaires of Sawgrass series, but I had no trouble understanding the storyline; so, it can be read as a standalone.”
I’m All About Books – Excerpt
“You’ve been seeing a lot of him, haven’t you?”
It was true. In the aftermath of Eli, Brooks had been a shoulder to cry on, a tower of emotional strength, and the voice on the other end of the phone whenever she needed to talk. He was never without an encouraging word or a timely kick in the pants if he felt it was necessary. He’d made it his personal mission to keep her from dwelling on the past. There was no doubt about the eventual outcome. Brooks didn’t fail at anything he set his mind to do.
Britt Reads Fiction – Review
“Well, I fell in love with this story wholeheartedly! This was the first novel that I have read by this author, but now I plan to definitely read more. Even though this is the third book in the series, I had no trouble jumping right in and understanding the story. . . . It was incredibly romantic!”

My Devotional Thoughts – Review
“I was intrigued by the extensive and well-written dialogue, and the thought occurred to me that this book would make a better screenplay, and I feel that if it was properly cast, this would make a fun rom-com. . . . This author truly does understand how to move the story along through the use of dialogue!”
Teatime and Books – Excerpt
His brows came together. “I can manage by myself for a few hours. I’m not a child.”
“I guess I’ll have to spell it out. I want to spend Thanksgiving here. With you.” The last five or six words came out louder than she intended.
“Can you repeat that?” he asked with a reluctant grin. “I didn’t hear you the first time.”
“Keep that up, and you’ll be wearing peanut butter.”

She thinks of him as a friend. He’s loved her since high school.
She’s holding on to the past. He’s worked hard to overcome his.
Brooks knew better than to fall in love with Jaclyn. She’s a trust fund kid, and he’s from the wrong side of the tracks. Guys like him never end up with girls like her. His head understood the rules. His heart was another story.

About the Author
I’m a Georgia girl at heart if not by birth. I love to read, watch college football, and spend time with my husband. I’m a hopeless romantic so there will always be a happily ever after in my stories. I also like to write about second chances because love doesn’t always work out the first time.
My books are sweet romances set in both contemporary and regency settings featuring stories about the journey to love, from that first meeting to the point where two people know their hearts are no longer their own. My characters aren’t perfect. They make mistakes and have faults like the rest of us. They learn the sometimes painful truth that the path to love isn’t always smooth, but it’s a road worth traveling.
One winner will receive an ebook of Because You Loved Me, the first book in the series, and a $25 Amazon gift card.
