The Breath of Dawn 

By Kristen Heitzmann

Corporate turnaround specialist Morgan Spencer, dubbed the “success guru,” has a Midas touch in business. But losing his wife sent him to the brink, and his two-year-old daughter, Livie, is all he’s living for–until they encounter a woman whose trouble just might draw him out of his own.

Four years ago Quinn Reilly did the right thing. Now the man her testimony put in jail is getting out. Though she has put up barriers to protect herself and those around her, she has come to care for the Spencer family, especially the winsome Livie and her mercurial father. Unwilling to put them at risk when the threats begin, she requests something she hopes the super-successful Morgan might be able to deliver.

Fixing problems is what Morgan does best, but his counterproposal takes them in a direction neither is equipped to handle. Determined to confront the past, will they survive to build a future?


Romance, suspense and mystery. A touch of murder, madness and revenge. This book is full of it and more.

We’re seeing both a dysfunctional family as well as a healthy family. Is it at all possible for them to merge in some manner?

Quinn is ready to run, and Morgan does all he can to prevent that. He comes up with a wild and wacky solution, but it’s not without pitfalls.

You’re probably going to need a few tissues before you make it through this book.

The Breath of Dawn doesn’t appear to be the beginning of a series, but I wish it were. These are characters my heart doesn’t want to leave behind. There’s certainly enough people in these two families to make a series.
