Featuring characters from Love and Relativity, a Preservation Series Companion Novel
Carter Montgomery spent most of his life blending in, and he liked it that way. It was always better to be seen, not heard. And while a theatric streak and friendly demeanor might have fooled most people, he knew the truth—he was the shy one. The quiet kid most people forgot about. Some might have considered that a bad thing, but those people all wanted to be in the spotlight.
The only place Carter didn’t mind attention was on stage, with The Hellions. Once content in his comfort zone in Seattle, Washington, he only knew three things: confrontation was to be avoided, keeping the peace was priority, and the moment he lost Kate Parker to Professor Ryan Campbell, he had no clue what to do with his life. Playing gigs, working at Pike Place Market, and watching BBC after the love of his life sailed off into the sunset just wasn’t going to cut it anymore.
Desperate to escape his rut, he takes a cue from Kate and chooses a random place to relocate—a small island across the country, where no one knows his name and memories of unrequited love aren’t found at every turn. Just when he thinks he’s found the perfect place to unwind and sink back into the shadows, in bursts Whitney Sinclair, a saucy firecracker who loves life and refuses to settle for second best. Full of contagious energy, she dares him to be brave, convincing him that it might finally be time to tell the world what he wants.
It might be time to make a declaration.

Rachael Wade has done it again! I mean this woman never ceases to amaze me when it comes to her writing. I get so lost in a world that I totally tune out and when I come back to reality I am mad because I want more and more of Rachael's world!
In Declaration we get Carter's story and wow what a story it is. If you have been reading along the series you know that Carter has been a part of this series since the beginning and man did I want him to have a bigger part or his own story because he intrigued me. He is what I call a conundrum because he is this geeked out smart guy with tats and soulful eyes that draw me in and I can't stop thinking about him. Plus he is in a band and when he plays he lights up the stage. Girls want him but he only has eyes for one girl and that is his best friend Kate. To bad for him that Kate has eyes for someone else.
Fed up with going no where and losing the girl of his dreams he decides it is time to change scenery and moves across the state to Florida. At first he is just taking in the scenery and then bam Whitney Sinclair comes in his life like a tornado and changes everything. They really are a cute couple because Whitney is outgoing and fun and loving and she is just what Carter needs. Whitney stays on Carter until he breaks and when he does he realizes his heart belongs to Whitney.
This is Carter's story and it is a must read!
