Publisher Description

He won’t hesitate to put his life on the line…but will he ever risk his heart?

Falling for Justice Garrett was a high point in Patience McGraw’s otherwise awkward adolescence. Even after he disappeared, Patience never forgot the boy who captured her heart. Now, he’s back in Fool’s Gold, California, and her passion for him is as strong as ever. But how can she trust that he won’t abandon her again—and her daughter, too?

When bodyguard Justice Garrett was a young man, witness protection brought him to this idyllic town and he never forgot its warmth, or the sweet beauty of his childhood friend. He’s returned to open a defense academy, and the Patience he once knew is all grown up. He can’t resist her smile, or her curves. But Justice’s past doesn’t make him husband, or father, material.

Patience and Justice think they’ll succumb to just one kiss… Then one more… Okay, just one night together. But they might learn that falling in love is beyond anyone’s control.

Just One Kiss

Justice Garrett never thought he would return to Fool's Gold, CA the only place he ever called home and back to the only girl he ever really cared about Patience McGraw. But now he has returned and it is looking at making it his home again by opening a business that focuses on training bodyguards, etc. and doing company retreats. After seeing Patience shortly after he returned it becomes evident that although they have spent years apart there connection they had when they were children still lives on.

In addition to Patience's love story you also get to learn more about the next two characters Felicia and Gideon who will be the main characters in Susan's book coming out in a couple weeks. Then there is the stories that she continues from the past Fool's Gold books which I love because you get to see what new has happened and how the connect with other books.

Can't wait to see what she has in store for Gideon and Felicia's story! If you haven't read any of the Fool's Gold books or a Susan Mallery book than this wouldn't be a bad one to start out with. It will just make you want to buy or rent the other ones before it!

Great Book

I have enjoyed the Fools Gold series. I dream that there truly are small towns like that in this world and would love to find one someday. I would relocate there in a heartbeat. Just to get out of the hassle of a big city like Columbus Ohio.
Keep up the great work and keeping my dream alive.

Return to Fools Gold

I'm always happy to return to Fools Gold. I enjoy going deeper into the lives of characters mentioned in earlier books, as well as getting caught up on the lives of previous lead characters. Always a entertaining read, I'm anxiously awaiting the next release!
