Publisher Description

Perfect for fans of Every Summer After and Lucy Score, Bend Toward the Sun is an angsty slow-burn romance between two complicated, imperfect people–and a love story you’ll never forget.

“A steamy romance about humans’ ability to grow and heal.”—Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of Love, Theoretically

Guarded, self-reliant botanist Rowan McKinnon doesn’t believe in love. With her new PhD, two steadfast best friends, and the occasional no-strings sex, she’s convinced she has everything she needs. When an academic setback throws her off course, she takes on the restoration of an overgrown vineyard to re-center herself and her career.

Dr. Harrison Brady is in an emotional freefall. Since losing a patient, he no longer believes he can keep people safe. Hoping rural sunshine and the hard labor of renovation work will help him heal, Harry heads home to Pennsylvania, where his family has just bought a long-abandoned vineyard.

The last thing Rowan and Harry expect is each other. Despite deeply different views on life and love, their chemistry is explosive, their connection magnetic. Even though their time at the vineyard is only temporary, Harry is compelled to explore the undeniable pull between them. Rowan is committed to protecting her heart at all costs.

But some things are too powerful–and too right–to be ignored.

“Intoxicatingly sensual and undeniably sexy.” – Mazey Eddings, author of The Plus One

Great read!

Love the detail of the characters and how the emotional damage of Rowan and Harry brings together. Can’t wait to read the other brothers stories!

Good read

This story pulled me in several directions. The descriptive scenery and prose spoke to me. Rowan and Harry were harder for me to appreciate. I understand emotional and trust issues, this whole book is full of them. However, the story is beautifully woven with great detail to the nurturing of the farm and vineyards. There is romance, steam and the HEA. A definite beach read.

An absolutely beautiful love story!!

“Bend Toward the Sun” is a beautifully written story that made me laugh and cry, and invited me into the lives of the characters, so I could become part of their romantic and emotional story. The serene backdrop of the vineyard was the perfect setting for reflecting on your life, taking a hold of your dreams and falling in love. This is by far, one of the best books I have read this year!!

Rowan and Harry came together unexpectedly at a family party which was just the beginning to a special friendship they both desperately needed. Harry had run away from a tragic event in his life and Rowan was seeking the solitude necessary to complete the research for her doctorate degree. Rowan’s life had been nothing like Harry’s and even though she loved his close-knit family, they made her nervous and uncomfortable. She just wasn’t used to people being so happy all the time.

Despite Harry’s life being a mess, meeting Rowan was a breath of fresh air that warmed his heart and made him feel that he could love again. He didn’t want to live in the darkness anymore and he hoped that Rowan’s light would help him recover from his despair. I loved Rowan and Harry’s witty banter, her compassion when it came to his panic attacks and the sweet gifts he left on her doorstep. Their connection was almost spiritual in that they each knew what the other needed to have a future filled with love, trust and happiness. I am so thankful that Ms. Devon wrote such a wonderful book and I am looking forward to what she has in store for us next!
