ChanceOfRain-AmberLin-600The only things Natalie Bouchard wants to change are the weekly specials in her Gram’s diner. So when her high school sweetheart strolls back into Dearling, Texas, she allows herself to indulge in a little flirtation, but that’s as far as it goes.

Navy SEAL Sawyer Nolan has returned to sell his father’s land and get the hell out, no matter how enticing he still finds Natalie. Until a storm rolls over the Texas hills, stranding them together at the farm…and the memories of their steamy past lead to a reunion filled with hot days and long nights.

Soon Natalie’s so far under Sawyer’s skin he can’t imagine being without her. But he has a lot of history in Dearling he’d like to leave behind, and Natalie is practically married to this town. If Sawyer wants to be more than just another person who leaves Natalie, he’ll have to give his hometown—and himself—one more chance.


What people are saying…

Top Pick!“With her lyrical imagery and carefully measured plot, Amber Lin tells the story of how a drought of the soul is no match for the power of love’s gentle rain.”
Night Owl Reviews

“Be prepared for some steaminess to warm your fall nights with this stormy tale.”
Library Journal

“Oh and as for Amber Lin, well she was already on my shelf as a favourite Author of mine and yet again she proved just why. Her writing style is beautiful, flawless and so evocative you live and breathe her stories. ‘Chance of Rain’ was sweet and emotional, it was hot and passionate and it had humour. Most of all though, it had that beautiful romance we all crave to escape into.”
Totally Booked

“Chance of Rain is not as “dark” as the Lost Girls but, it is every bit as wonderful. At first, I thought it wasn’t going to hold the grit that I had come to love from Ms. Lin’s books but, fear not it definitely does.”
Same Book, Different Review

“I loved the characters. Sawyer is a great guy who tries to do the right thing, but has some issues to work through. Natalie has some issues of her own, but she is tough and independent. Steamy yet sweet, I really enjoyed this book.”

“I loved it. It was intimate, intense and so freaking sexy.”
Straight Shootin’ Book Reviews

“This is a lovely story of two very lonely people who reconnect with completely different expectations. Their paths to self discovery intersect with their desire for each other.”
The Book Nympho

“Not only did their personalities work beautifully together, but of course their physical attraction and sexual prowess were also quite compatible. There are many an intense and heated moment along the way, so don’t let the cover fool you into thinking this is just a sweet read. There’s a whole lot of sexy, too.”
Book Sojourner

“The plot here is nothing particularly new – a returning former military man, the heroine left behind, the small town – it’s the way that Amber Lin writes with realism, emotion, beautiful prose and some fun dialogue, that makes this a standout.”
Jill, Goodreads reviewer

“Trust me, the smexy times are here and hotter than every and the in depth characterizations that I have come to expect but underneath all of that was a sweet story about finding “home” again and realizing that home is where the heart is.”
Harlie’s Reviews

“Sawyer and Natalie dance around each other until a rainstorm forces them to together for several days. And things really heat up…WOWZERS!!! *fans self*”
J *I did it all for the nookie.The book nookie*, Goodreads reviewer

“This book is filled with great characters and a true small town. I see lots of potential for future stories and I look forward to reading more about Dearling.”
TBQ’s Book Palace

“…a poignant, romantic, inspiring story about letting go of the past in order to have a future filled with happiness, love, and a happily ever after you never imagined could be yours”
Blithely Bookish Reviews

“Sawyer was a seriously sexy hero who was far from perfect and Natalie was a small town girl who wasn’t sure if she had enough to offer Sawyer. I really hope that this book becomes a series because there were supporting characters who had their own sparks flying and I’d love to read their stories too!”
