Forever. That’s how long she’s loved him.

When she was a child, he was her hero. When she grew up, he was her dream.

From her earliest memory, Charlotte Rose has loved Runner Jeffries. If it was worth learning or doing, Runner showed her how. If something hurt or needed attention, he was there to fix, protect, and watch over her. Charlotte Rose dreamed of him as hers forever.

When Runner went away and became a famous baseball star, their friendship endured. Now he’s coming home. Adorned with a sophisticated new look and a distinguished career, it’s time for Charlotte to make her best friend notice she’s all grown up.

Runner Jeffries has loved Charlotte Rose from the time he taught her to read. She’s been his buddy, his Firefly, and he’s always thought of her as his kid sister . . . until the day he realizes she is no longer a little girl.

When Runner brings a fiancé to a family reunion in their Colorado mountain town, Charlotte is crushed as her life-long fantasy crumbles around her.

Never having thought of a future without him, Charlotte is determined to carve out a new life for herself. But before the final curtain falls, is it worth one more chance to go after what she truly wants before her dreams are extinguished forever?

A quick reading escape, this funny, tender, poignant sweet romance will stay with you long after the last page is turned.

What a wonderful read. It was like a thrilling roller coaster ride. It runs the gambit of emotions. I laughed, I cried, and gasped! I was totally invested in these characters. Once I started, I couldn’t stop. I absolutely loved it! Pammy

Great romance full of heart tugs and plot twists. As Charlotte picks up the pieces of her dreams and begins to build a life without Runner, fate throws her a curve. Well developed characters, it will keep you turning pages late into the night. Not to be missed! L. Williams

I love how this new series ties into the first. A new chapter in the lives of familiar people and at the same time an introduction to new characters and storyline. They will touch your heart and leave you ready for their next adventure. Dave in Tucson

 I loved the ups and downs and heart string pulls that came page after page. A magnificent read. Don’t hesitate to choose this! I want to go to Colorado every time I read one of Ms. Foster’s books! Pour the hot chocolate and curl up to awesomeness! KP OBX

My heart was engaged from the beginning of the book until the last word was read. I am in love with these characters and can’t wait for the next book in the series! Mimi, you did it again! Evelyn Stigers Johnston

There’s something about Ms. Foster’s writing that pulls you in and makes you feel like you’re part of the action. This was one of her best. Loved the witty dialogue and the twists and turns. Definitely recommend if you like romance without graphic sex. Tiffany O.

Great story and very well written by Mimi Foster. There is a saying that you can’t improve on perfection but I think that Ms. Foster has figured out how to do it with each book that she adds to this series. Theresa M. Rodriguez

I like independent women and I can depend on Ms. Foster providing a transformation along those lines. This was an altogether delightful read. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. Another five stars, Mimi Foster! D. Bennett

The only downfall with these stories is that they have to end. Stealing Runner’s Heart was an amazing journey of Runner and Charlotte from childhood best friends and buddies to grown, mature lovers. It is such a delight to read a wholesome romance story without the author resorting to foul language. I am anxiously awaiting Mimi’s next book. Jim B

This is such a heartwarming story and you can’t help but fall in love with the characters Mimi creates. He calls her “firefly” because people and things that are broken are drawn to her. The only thing I didn’t like was when I finished it!!! Pennylane

Mimi hit a home run! Miss Foster took us on a fun ride with unexpected and emotional surprises. I loved this story! Kelly
