Product Description

Product Description

Elaina Morrison has loved Neil McManus her whole life. She doesn’t remember a time when she didn’t love him. Through heartbreaking tragedy and years of separation, her love holds true…until life stomps all over her heart, shattering her perfect dream, teaching her how hard it is to let go.
Real life doesn’t have anything on romantic dreams though, as these two have learned over and over again. It sucks big time, leaving painful scars in its wake.
But Neil isn’t giving up. He’s a soldier who has endured years of longing and sacrifice to wait for her. He’s fought his way through battles before and this is one he can’t afford to lose on any level.
Neil McManus is going in fighting to make Elaina see what he already knows.
That she will forever be his Cherry Girl…

About the Author

A New York Times bestselling author who has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop, because now she writes them too. Granted, Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion. Ever! Writing books pretty much fills her days now and she's always busy. Raine has a prince of a husband, and two brilliant sons to pull her back into the real world if the writing takes her too far away. She loves to hear from readers and to chat about the characters in her books. You can connect with her on Facebook or visit her blog at to find out what she's working on now.

Raine Millers Cherry Girl had me captivated from start to finish. Emotional and so heartwarming. Neil so loves Elaina with all his heart and i fell in love with them both. Neil wanted his Cherry Girl and boy he got her hook line and sinker. Raine you have excelled yourself yet again and you left my heart warm and fuzzy. I thank you Raine Miller xxx

5.0 out of 5 stars A Love Story that Transcends Time 2 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Cherry Girl is another beautiful story from Raine Miller. This lady is a rock star in my opinion in that I have loved every book she's written. This is a standalone book that introduces us to Neil McManus and Elaina Morrison, two characters that we are introduced to in Raine's Blackstone series. If you've read the Blackstone series, we briefly meet Neil there as Ethan's right hand man working at Blackstone Security. In Cherry Girl, we get the full Neil, in all his beautiful glory.

Neil and Elaina first meet when a seventeen year old Neil comes to ten year old Elaina's house as a guest of her brother Ian. Elaina's family adopts Neil as a member of their family since Neil has no real home to speak of. Elaina falls in love with Neil when he winks at her across the table and so starts the love story. Neil joins the military after school and becomes SF special forces. When he is home on leave he visits with her family but primarily spends time with his girlfriend Cora who Elaina hates with a passion. All the while Neil stays in contact with Elaina but treats her like a sister. Tragedy strikes Elaina's family and her whole life changes.

When Elaina is 18 Neil comes home on leave and the dynamic between him and Elaina shifts. Their feelings for each other are finally expressed and their love story finally starts. But outside forces seek to tear them apart and Neil and Elaina are pulled apart for 5 long years. Fate decides to step in and bring these two back together and their road back to each other is just beautiful.

"I opened my eyes and traced over every part of his features, as beautiful now as he'd always been when he was a boy of seventeen and winked at me over the dinner table.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 22 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the story of Ethan Blackstone's best friend Neil who he served with in the Special Forces and who he now works with. Neil met Elania as a young child through her brother Ian and both held a love so deep for each other from the beginning that family knew they would eventually be together. Neil was home from war and Elania had just broken up with her boyfriend when they first come together but a change or circumstances and lies told separates them again and not until many years later are they thrown back together with a little help from family and the truths are learnt. Its an amazing story of love and determination and an excellent read plus we get to see more of Ethan Blackstone.

4.0 out of 5 stars second chances 15 April 2014
By Louise
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a spin off novella from the Blackstone Affair series. Neil & Elaina both work for Ethan Blackstone, but this is about second chances.

I really enjoyed this one, if you have liked the Blackstone series this is a must read for you.
