“A sizzling combination of heat and heart.” Barbara Freethy, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
On a secluded beach…
A man determined to seize life,
A woman hiding from it,
And a chemistry that can’t be denied.
“It was beautiful, touching and at times had me laughing out loud.” Amazon reviewer
In this novella, Meg Alexander has temporarily returned to her home of Crescent Cove, California. Last time she’d lived here she’d called herself Starr and saw only bright skies ahead. Then she’d run from all that was familiar, the happy-go-lucky girl becoming a sadder-but-wiser woman. Now family obligations have brought her back and she’s determined to make it through the month with grit and grace. She only falters when one day she looks up—and loses her breath.
Caleb McCall has never forgotten the summer he spent at Crescent Cove and the beautiful girl who’d laughed and played there. Eager for a break from his workaholic ways, he rents one of the surfside bungalows and discovers his landlady is none other than the one woman who has never faded from his memory. Clearly, though, Meg is wary and even their instant chemistry doesn’t let down her guard. But Caleb has learned there’s no time like the present to grab the opportunities life presents, so he’s willing to fight for what he wants…the total surrender of Meg’s heart.
