Be honest, a one-night-stand is not as horrible as it sounds.
Amber spends many nights in her cozy bed in Harper's Crossing dreaming about one night, one man, eight years ago.
Most would think it's time for her to give up her fantasy. She has a successful clothing boutique and fabulous friends. Find a different man who exists.
Seth is a God. Medically released from an elite Marine Corp unit, he's back home and having a hard time relating to civilians and a civilian's life.
Amber has family issues, which make it hard for her to trust those she loves. Her mom has a hand in this. Along with a stressful mom/daughter relationship, someone is intent on breaking in and vandalizing her home and property.
Let's hope that Seth realizes he has a lot, which includes safety, to offer Amber. If only he thinks he's good enough for her.
Fortunately, Harper's Crossing is a small town and has a great sense of community. It's a challenge not to be put in a situation where the residents mix and mingle, so let's hope there's enough mixing to cause mingling between Amber and Seth. Their fantasy can be reality!
So many lives and loves at stake in 1670 at a shabby area of London on the Thames.
After two decades, Lord Avery returns to London to reclaim his love and son. Alinor is tested with her heart and mind. Can she forget or forgive that Avery left her for dead when he realized she was pregnant with his child?
Livia voyages to London from Venice with a dire message. Alinor's son, Rob, has drowned. As his widow, she claims she will help the family become rich in return for a place in Rob's English family. Livia doesn't seem to be without the need for a man at her side and thinks Avery would be a better match for herself than Alinor.
Sarah, Alinor's granddaughter, is suspicious of Livia's intent, and plans a trip to Venice. This will give her proof of Livia's past. Sarah has a long itinerary to verify the death of her uncle and to check the history Livia proclaims.
Sarah meets a man with many stories of Livia and her occupation. Felipe holds Sarah's heart if she will agree he's a reformed man.
With a casual pace to the beginning of the story, the intrigue tumbles in from all sides as the characters reveal their true personalities and intents. People do change, some for the better.
