KYLAND by Mia Sheridan
Published; January 24th 2015, Indie Published
A full-length, standalone romance from the New York Times bestselling author of Archer’s Voice.
Dirt poor. Hillbilly. Backwoods hick. Mountain folk.
Tenleigh Falyn struggles each day to survive in a small, poverty-stricken, coal mining town where she lives with her sister and mentally ill mother. Her dream of winning the college scholarship given to one student by the local coal company and escaping the harshness of her life, keeps her going.
Kyland Barrett lives in the hills, too, and has worked tirelessly—through near starvation, through deep loneliness, against all odds—to win the Tyton Coal Scholarship and leave the town that is full of so much pain.
They’re both determined not to form any attachments, but one moment changes everything. What happens when only one person gets to win? When only one person gets to leave? And what happens to the one left behind?
Kyland is a story of desperation and hope, loss and sacrifice, pain and forgiveness, but ultimately, a story of deep and unending love.

love Mia Sheridan. I have read a few of her books now and I enjoy every single one. Kyland didn’t disappoint. It was a crazy rollercoaster ride of emotion from start to finish.
Our two main characters Tenleigh and Kyland are from a poor neighbourhood and don’t know where their next meal is coming from. We soon see that Kyland selfless when we discover he would provide food for a homeless person in need than feed himself. We see how hard the struggle is and the only thing that keeps both our hero and heroine going is their dream of winning the scholarship so they can get out of the place they live.
Then they meet each other and suddenly everything changes as their priorities shift. This is when the real rollercoaster begins as we feel their struggle to avoid falling in love but ending up deeper than ever.
I really enjoyed this story. Both Kyland and Tenleigh are very likeable characters and you soon lose yourself deep into their story and the whole time I was reading I was sat on the edge of my seat with my heart in my mouth.
The story is predictable but that doesn’t stop you enjoying the story – you spend the whole time hoping your right.
A wonderful of second chance romance that steals your heart, stamps on it and puts it back together bit by fragile bit.
