Nolan is a very talented writer that I know is a reliable author that will hit all the right contemporary romance notes. This book absolutely lived up to my expectations. This beautiful story unfolded and immediately pulled me in. I loved the immediate push/pull between the main characters and thoroughly appreciated how the story developed. I love this author and her writing. Always a one click for me.
Hold Me Forever (Heron Harbor Book 3) by Lea Nolan
I loved this book. Lark with her quirky artist vibe and Hunter with his straight laced Chief of Police persona just really did something for me.
I have not had the pleasure of reading the first two books but I will be fixing that soon. It’s not necessary to read them first but I always love going back when I can to find out a series began and learn the cast of characters from the beginning and see them develop and evolve as the series progresses.
Lark spoke to me for some reason, we aren’t close in age and I’m not a holistic artist but I fell in love with her.
I loved so many things about this story that I can’t pick one. The rehearsal dinner, the morning of the wedding and Lark’s drive onto the island are probably top three.
Ms. Nolan is a new to me author but aside from the first two of this series I will be looking at her other titles.
Oh my heart! This love story was such a great read! I feel my review won’t do it justice. This story between Lark and Hunter is very close to home for me. This is one of those stories you fall in love with and can’t put down. I love the way the author writes their story.I want to say so much more but don’t want to risk any spoilers! I will be reading all of the other books in this series very very soon!
This was a fun 5 star read, I was pulled in right from the beginning.
Lark is returning back home for her sister’s wedding in her RV. She is trying to figure out just how to avoid Hunter for a week until the wedding. But fate has other plans and she ends up seeing him sooner rather than later.
Hunter didn’t expect to see Lark as soon as he did, when he saw the RV on the side of the road he had a feeling it was her. He ends up helping Lark and old feelings come rushing back.
When Lark’s sister asks them for a favor they agree to help her. Will these two finally find their way back to each other? Or will secrets keep them apart?
Overall I really enjoyed this second chance romance. I loved her nickname for her RV, what a life to live. All of the characters added a great element to the story, there was one that I didn’t care so much for you you will find out pretty quickly who that is. The author does a great job with her writing and I can’t wait to read more from her and this series. 1-click and get started today.
Lea Nolan is an author I just heard about. I read the synopsis of Hols me forever and it pulled me in. When I started the book I couldn’t put it down. I love romance novels and this one didn’t disappoint me. I know this is the third book in the series but it’s so good I plan to read the first two. Lark and Hunter belong together and I love that they got their second to first their past. I can not wait to read more books by Lea Nolan. Definitely worth reading!
HOLD ME FOREVER (HERON HARBOR Book 3) by LEA NOLAN is just as fantastic as the first two in this series. Having read the previous two installments I had high expectations for this book and Ms. Nolan did not disappoint, I was so enthralled in book three that I quickly devoured it in one sitting without meaning to. This romance has everything that a reader can hope for including a small town, second chances, great main characters, and plenty of romance, drama and more. Personally I’m hoping this isn’t the last we see of Haron Harbor, because this reader for one definitely wants more.
One can read “Hold me Forever” as a stand-alone although it’s a part of the Heron Harbor Series. This is my first book by Lea Nolan and she didn’t disappoint. The characters are well written leaving you a desire to learn more about them and their stories. Also, who doesn’t love a second chance romance. Lark and Hunter’s romance will draw you in and have you start cheering them in no time. Find some time to sit down and enjoy this book, you won’t regret it.
Another awesome installment that is all sweetness. If you love yourself a good romance where you can snuggle down and get lost in all the heart-thumping, toe-curling moments then this book and this series are just what you need.
Lark and Hunter seem poles apart bless them. One is free-spirited, going where the wind takes her, never quite settling and painting the world as she passes through, the other is a dig your roots in kind of guy. He’s set himself up in his hometown and he is happy, successful as the Police Chief. When Lark’s sister’s wedding brings them both back together, both must face the fact that while they may be different there is an undeniable spark they cannot deny, one that hasn’t died out, even with all the years they have been apart.
Sink your teeth into this little beauty I promise that you won’t be disappointed.
The Heron Harbor series is full of books that I am always excited to read when they come out…and this is not exception.
Lark is returning Heron Harbor for her sister’s wedding. She is hoping to come to town, attend the wedding, and leave before anyone really notices. That plan goes out the window almost as soon as she gets into town.
Hunter, the Chief of police, is quite surprised when a stranded motorist in his town turns out to be a woman he has not seen in many years. Lark and Hunter dated many years ago…and even had plans to run off and get married. But…when the time came…Lark said she couldn’t go and left town. Now he is face-to-face with the woman who has always held his heart.
When Wren becomes overwhelmed at work, she leaves it to Lark and Hunter to work out the final details of the wedding. Will these two be able to move beyond their pasts and work together? And what happens if their old feelings come to the surface? Lark is a free spirit and has no intentions to settle down…can Hunter change her mind? Or are they destined to part once again?
I fell in love with this series from the first book…and each book that followed has been just as good. I devoured this book in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down because the characters pulled me in and I needed to know how it was going again. Another great book by Lea Nolan!
This is the 3rd book in the Heron Harbor series. This is a Contemporary Romance novel and is 184 pages in length. This story follows Lark, an artist, and Hunter, a police chief. Lark has done everything in her power to avoid going back home but being in her sister’s wedding makes her head that way. Hunter wants to settle down but there is really only one person that he wants to do that with, and she pulled away and fled years ago – until she shows up in Heron Harbor. Now they are both tasked with putting the finishing touches on her sister’s wedding – can they work together with all the sparks flying?
HOLD ME FOREVER (HERON HARBOR Book 3) by LEA NOLAN. This is the 3rd book in the Heron Harbor series and I loved it. They have all been really good but this one has become my favorite. Its the story of Lark Donovan who is the youngest of the Donovan sisters. She Lark loves Art and feels like that is all she needs in life, that and keeping away from Heron Bay, the town she grew up in. Teaching Art to kids and seniors has been her lifeline and she loves it. But when her sister Wren is getting married Lark has to go back home to help with the wedding. The one person she doesn’t want to see is her ex, Police Chief Hunter McMullen. Of course she knows its inevitable and sure enough on her first day she runs right into him. Hunter knows seeing Lark is going to happen since he’s the best man in Wren’s wedding but he didn’t realize the feelings were all going to come back more than ever. Sparks still fly between them and Hunter wants more than anything to prove to Lark that they can make it work. Will he be able to convince Lark they can work things out? Read Hold me Forever to find out!
This book is your typical small town romance, so if that’s your thing, then you will definitely love this book.
This is book 3 in the series – you don’t need to have read the first two, however they will give away some plot lines from the previous books.
Lark is the opposite of her academic sisters, enjoying her lifestyle of teaching art and travelling to sell her own work – just like her mum. Six years ago she left Hunter, and has avoided coming home but now they have to work together to help Wren & Smith finalise their wedding.
This was definitely a case of opposites attract. Lark & Hunter were great characters, very real easy to like.
I really enjoyed all the mystery surrounding the family history, and it really helped show the reasons behind Lark’s actions years ago. I loved watching them both re-discover the love they had for each other.

Hold Me Forever (Heron Harbor Book 3) by Lea Nolan
This is the third book I’ve read by Nolan. This is the third book in the Heron Harbor series. Nolan has kept me interested in these books since the first one.
Lark wasn’t exactly wanting to see her ex on the first day in town. She also didn’t want her RV to break down. Spending more time with Hunter isn’t exactly what she wants but it’s what she gets. The quote I chose for Lark is: “I don’t run out of gas. And before you ask, it’s not my battery or the fuses, either. There must be something wrong with the electrical system. I need a mechanic, preferably someone cheap, one who knows how to fix RVs.”
Hunter is Chief of Police and on bis way home he sees a stranded person. Being the nice guy he is, he stops. The one person he was hoping to see later in the week is the stranded person. The quote I chose for Hunter is: “Lark. It’s nice to see you, though I’m sorry it’s under these circumstances.”
Highly recommended for Contemporary Romance lovers.
I absolutely enjoyed this story! It was engaging, moved smoothly and all of the plot points worked well together. There was nothing that felt forced or out of place especially being the third book in the series. I didn’t feel like I was missing key points at all.
Lark and Hunter had a beautiful second chance and the road to realization for what caused them to fall apart in the first place was well designed. I loved the character arc that Lark experienced with her family, herself and Hunter as she healed the parts of herself she denied and hid for so long. This was a beautiful story and I will most likely read the others in this series!
The third installment of the Heron Harbor series does not disappoint. Hold Me Forever can be read as a stand alone or in conjunction with the previous two books. Lea Nolan creates relatable characters and realistic environments with her descriptive writing. Hold Me Forever is humorous, romantic, and full of twists and turns. Lea Nolan keeps you on your toes and wanting more! Lark and her sisters have such a good relationship with one another; enviable for this only child! Lark’s free spirit and artistic nature shines through and makes the reader want to take a trip with her in her less than reliable Winnebago. I will definitely be reading the other two books in this series to experience more adventures with the Donovan sisters!
HOLD ME FOREVER (HERON HARBOR Book 3) by LEA NOLAN
Hold Me Forever is the third book in the Heron Harbor series by Lea Nolan. This is a new to me author that I’m definitely going to check out the other books in this series. I truly enjoyed reading this book and had a hard time putting it down. I read in one afternoon. This is Lark and Hunter’s story. Lark is a independent women who just takes one day at a time she believes this is the only way to keep from getting hurt. She’s also got just one rule and that’s to never go home to Heron Harbor. But she’s going to break that rule to go to her sisters wedding.. Hunter the Chief of Police and really loves life he only wishes he had someone to share it with. These two are haven’t seen one another is years and are put together at the wedding. There are definitely sparks between. Find out what happens next in this must read. I look forward to reading more from this Author.
I absolutely adored this book! I don’t know how many Nolan has written but it feels like she’s been doing this for years. This was a feel-good book for me. I felt like I knew the characters and the story was just GOOD – – a nice amount of romance, not a ton of swearing or vulgarity. I had a hard time putting it down! I see there are two other books that tell the other two sisters’ stories and I look forward to reading them.
Hold Me Forever is part of the Heron Harbor series, but is a stand alone book. It is the first I have read, and it seems each book focuses on one Donovan sister. This book focuses on Lark, the free spirited artist sister. I will likely go back and read the other 2, because I enjoyed this book. The characters have very well written and realistic personalities and the supporting characters seem to as well. The story is told in 3rd person, but with a back and forth focus on either Lark or Hunter. This worked well because it told us about each of their feelings and perspective, but did not have to wait for the next chapter, like most books that alternate POV. There were a couple things I didn’t like in the story. I didn’t quite understand why Lark kept her relationship with Hunter a secret. Seems like she was really close with her sisters, but kept a 2 year relationship and engagement a secret… Also, there seemed to be a lot of messed up childhoods, and it got to be somewhat depressing at points. Parents that died, absent fathers, lying parents, abandoned kids… seemed like everyone who grew up in Heron Harbor had a bad homelife. Beyond that though, it was a good story and I would read more by Lea Nolan.

Hold Me Forever is the 3rd book in the Heron Harbour series by Lea Nolan. Although part of a series, Hold Me Forever can be read as a stand alone. I have read the 2nd book in this series, and now the 3rd but hadn’t read the first book and didn’t feel that I was missing any necessary information that would reduce my enjoyment. I would love to read the first book though and get Wren and Smith’s story.
In this book we get the story of the 3rd Donovan sister, artist Lark, who feels like the black sheep of the family. Lark has returned home to Heron Harbour to attend Wren’s wedding. Given the role of doing the last minute jobs for the wedding she’s thrust together with best man, Police chief, Hunter McMullen. Unknown to friends and family, Lark and Hunter were engaged years before.
This is a fantastic second chance romance. I loved reading Lark and Hunter’s story. Being forced together to do the last minute wedding prep, Lark and Hunter both fight the love and attraction that is still between them.
Seeing other family members who have arrived for the wedding also causes Lark to rethink much of her life when she hears stories which give her much to ponder.
Now that we have the stories of the 3 Donovan sister’s I hope that this series will not come to an end. I’m sure the residents of Heron Harbour still have more stories to tell.
HOLD ME FOREVER (HERON HARBOR Book 3) by LEA NOLAN – Review by Barbara Stegall
What a great love story. This was a nice easy read with great characters. From the start you want Lark and Hunt to have their HEA. Poor Lark has to learn the truth about her mother’s death and secrets kept by her late father. Lark comes through everything and gets her guy right along with her art. Enjoy the ride (and not in the RV).
I love how relatable I can see myself in Lark (the main character) but the sensational journey their love sends us down in this book will leave your heart racing but in a good way. I love the way this author returns both characters back into one another’s life with their history: The fact they’re reunited with another couple’s union is powerful in its own right. A love story within another one is great reading, to me, the sucker for romance. The chemistry within their body language described in the story speaks to exactly what draws me into these characters. Their bodies speak more than they actually do to draw them near. I have been pulling for them to rekindle and also for them to give one another a second chance. This story goes in depth on connecting these two. Pick up your copy and enjoy this read!
This story flowed along so nicely I didn’t even realize I was getting to the end of the story. I loved meeting these two and watching them reconnect. They made me laugh and smile at their antics. Then when Hunter upped the ante and decided to start swooning her…I couldn’t stop reading.
The secondary characters are a treat! I enjoyed her sisters then there was Hunter’s BFF, who happens to be the groom. Their little heart to heart talk made my day!
Overall this is a wonderful story that really kept my interest. There is stress and good times as well as a few surprises. This is a first time author for me and I will be keeping my eye our for more from her.
I really loved Hold Me Forever. Lark’s story was so beautiful and Lea Nolan’s characters are bright and funny. This is the third book in the Heron Harbor series and I want to go back to the beginning and read them all. This is such an easy to read, beach and summer fun book. I’m looking forward to more from this author!!
Hold Me Forever was a great read! It was entertaining, quick, sweet, and I laughed several time while reading this novel. Raven’s story was so good, but I honestly honestly I enjoyed Lark’s better! It was so hard for me to put this book down when I started reading it. I fell in love the moment I read the first page. I really hope Nolan continues this series somehow but I don’t see how. I just love Heron Harbor so much and I don’t want to end! This was a great read and I highly recommend this standalone series!
While this is the third book in the Heron Harbor series by Lea Nolan, Hold Me
Forever is the first book I’ve read by this author in general. I am usually the kind of reader that NEEDS to start from the beginning if I know a book is part of a series, even if it is a standalone. When I stumbled across the synopsis though, I was really interested in the storyline and less concerned with not knowing any potential background on any of the characters. Fortunately, the book did not disappoint. With characters that you can’t help but love and a home feel, this book is the perfect summer read. I like the chemistry between Lark and Hunter but also LOVED that this book involved family, especially sisters as I have two of my own. I love a fun, lighthearted story that makes you feel like you’re at home, Hold Me Forever did that
for me early on. I will really be going back to read the first two installments of this series. Lea Nolan is definitely an author I want to read more of. I would give this book 4/5 stars.
I loved this story so much. It was so beautifully written and just an absolute pleasure to read. The emotion just poured off the pages and I was so invested in Lark and Hunter’s story. I loved Lark’s character she was really intriguing and I just felt this connection with her, she was really genuine. I loved Hunter too and as soon as they reconnected, I could feel that what they had shared in the past was not over with and I was rooting for the whole way through.
Although this book is part of a series it can be read as a standalone but characters from the previous books do appear so I would definitely recommend reading them in order – they are also fantastic books and would highly recommend them!
Coming in on book 3 of the series I was nervous. But I was told it was a stand-alone romance book. I’m a hopeless romantic and a sucker for cute love stories. The book went as I expected with a ton of use twists and turns with a hint of mystery. Lark and Hunter are adorable together and I love the “old love finds its way to reignite”. The characters were so well described and no detail was spared, even the simple side characters you fell in love with. I loved the sister’s interactions, I myself have 5 sisters and could easily see their comments between each other being a real conversation with my sisters. This book was a light read, it’ll give you butterflies and make your soul warm.
This is the third book in this series, and I could not wait to read it. I fell in love with this author from the very first book and that hasn’t changed. This book picks up from the second one and I couldn’t have been more impressed. I love how the author can tell their stories with such warm and inviting characters yet provide the perfect amount of angst and chemistry that I love to read. Her books are quick page turners for me and this one was no different. I laughed and cried but really loved and appreciated this book more than the previous ones. Please do yourself a favor and pick this book up to read.
Hold Me Forever
Book 3 in Heron Harbor series. Author Lea Nolan, in each of these books has taken a set of characters from the back seat of the story line to the front. I like the way we get the repeating characters and yet we get new information and story lines with each book. The author does a good job at tying it all in together and holds our interest with each book. Every reader I think will enjoy these books.
Having enjoyed the previous two books in the ‘Heron Harbor’ series I was looking forward to reading this next instalment and was not disappointed. It was lovely being back on Heron Harbor Island and the author really made the setting come alive once again. It can be read as a standalone story, however the characters do crossover and I’ve enjoyed the books as a series. This storyline follows artist and traveller Lark Donovan and Heron Harbor local Police Chief Hunter McMullen, and has a second chance at love theme. Lark is happy being independent and free spirited, travelling the country selling her paintings at festivals and teaching workshops whilst Hunter loves his life on Heron Harbor.
Although Lark had a rule never to return to her childhood home she has to break this for her sister’s wedding, only to discover that someone she once had feelings for is also part of the wedding party, Hunter. For Hunter, Lark was the one that got away and having been reunited after years apart he’s not going to waste this opportunity. The couple discover that the chemistry between them is still there and it definitely sizzles off the page. Hunter decides to do all he can to convince Lark to stay which results in some sexy scenes. But despite this Lark still starts to pull away resulting in a story which kept me hooked from start to finish. I loved the main characters and found them both very easy to relate to and so felt engaged in their story. This is a lovely, heartwarming contemporary romance and I look forward to future books by this author.
