Contemporary Romance| Second Chance Romance

Smoke and Mirrors is the third standalone in the City Limits series. It features a new couple navigating their second-chance romance. Enjoy this love story between a fireman who has returned home from the military and the single mom he left down the street. Welcome to Wynne.


My best laid plans had backfired. I’d thought by putting miles between myself and my first love that she’d be free to live whatever life she’d wanted, but when I came back from serving my country and Faith was raising her little girl alone, it was time to make new plans.

In eight years, not a single day had passed when she wasn’t on my mind, and not a night went by when I didn’t miss her. She was fierce and stunning and didn’t need a man in her life, but when the time came—and she wanted one—the line would start behind me.
Like smoke, I’d let her slip through my fingers once, but I’d never forgive the man in the mirror if I let it happen again. She was the fire inside me that would never burn out.


4.5 Stars!
Review by Lisa Kane

Aaron Goodman is a good guy. He left town years ago for the Air Force is back. He’s been back for the last four years. He makes a decent living as a fire fighter; he does odd jobs for just about the whole town and...he regrets every day how he left the love of his life behind. 

Faith Simpson has a hard life. She’s a single parent to her four-year-old daughter, Delaney. Delaney’s father took off when she was born and Faith hasn’t seen him since. But he sends his support payment every month and that’s all she needs from him. Faith works at the family diner and then tends bar at night. Any available moment she can, she spends with her daughter. 

Living in a small town means Aaron and Faith run into each other all the time. Well, Aaron may conjure up reasons to see Faith. The diner and the bar are part of his stomping grounds. He just sits there quietly, watching, hoping that Faith will say more than a few words to him. 

It’s surprising what little human contact a man can survive on. For four years, I’d had less than none. Actually, none would have been better; I had a deficit.

The way Faith sees it, she didn’t wait for Aaron like she said she would. She’s got more baggage than she thinks any man would want. 

Every once in a while, I’d fool myself into thinking something was still there between us.
A dim spark.
A phantom sensation.
A faded hope. 

It’s hard not to get frustrated with these two. Both have made mistakes and yet they are both willing to move past them. Of course, they would first have to admit that they wanted each other back, and that just hasn’t happened.

Faith thinks Aaron would be settling if they got back together. 

I wouldn’t be someone’s option.
Someone’s maybe someday.

Don’t be thinking that if they just broke down and admitted their feelings that things are going to smoothly fall into place. 

Surprise! And not such a pleasant surprise after all. 

What else had he lied about? Had it all been smoke and mirrors? What was real?

Smoke and Mirrors may just be my favorite of this series. I loved the characters, even if they drove me nuts!

“I didn’t wait for you, Aaron.”
His brows rose. “But I can wait for you.”

M. Mabie is writer who made thousands of readers hate to love (and love to hate) the angst-filled contemporary romance, Bait.

She lives in Illinois with her husband. She writes unconventional love stories and tries to embody "real-life romance." She cares about politics, but will not discuss them in public. She uses the same fork at every meal, watches Wayne's World while cleaning, and lets her dog sleep on her head.

She has always been a writer. In fact, she was born with a pen in her hand, which almost never happens. Almost. M. Mabie usually doesn't speak in third-person. She promises.
