Publisher Description

If it was only about her, she might never have come back to Rose Bend.

But it’s not only about her anymore.

Sydney Collins left the small Berkshires town of Rose Bend eight years ago, grieving her sister’s death—and heartbroken over her parents’ rejection. But now the rebel is back—newly divorced and pregnant—ready to face her fears and make a home for her child in the caring community she once knew. The last thing she needs is trouble. But trouble just set her body on fire with one hot, hot smile.

Widower and Rose Bend mayor Coltrane Dennison hasn’t smiled in ages. Until a chance run-in with Sydney Collins, who’s all grown-up and making him want what he knows he can’t have. Grief is his only connection to the wife and son he lost, and he won’t give it up. Not for Sydney, not for her child, not for his heart. But when Sydney’s ex threatens to upend everything she’s rebuilt in Rose Bend, Cole and Sydney may find that a little trouble will take them where they never expected to go.

Great storyline

I loved this book so hard and it totally deserves 5* but what took off the 1/2* is the politics of today. I prefer reading a beautiful romance and this was that but with out all that to drag it down. I continued to read passed it because I loved the storyline and the characters and the secondary characters are wonderful. I will read the next book and hope it is as emotional and funny and sexy as this one was.
3* Slow Dance at Rose Bend
This was a fun and sexy short side story and well worth the read.

Beautiful story

What a beautiful, emotional story. Sydney shows back up in her hometown pregnant and newly divorced hoping she can start over with her (future)child. Cole (Coltrane) is trying to just make it through the day after losing his wife and son. The attraction between Sydney and Cole is immediate and yet not what Cole wants and he is going to try his darnedest to avoid. Of course these two get thrown together and again the attraction is evident and harder for Cole to deny.
This is also a marriage of convenience story, Cole offers to marry Sydney to make sure her ex husband can’t fight her for custody. This offer is tough for Cole to make but also one he doesn’t want to take back.
I really liked Sydney and the way she finally started to stand up for herself and realize what she and her baby do deserve. I enjoyed how we were able to see how her relationship changed with her parents and how it started to heal Sydney. I enjoyed this book and I can’t wait for Wolfgang’s (Cole’s brother) book. When you read this book prepare for some tears and have a tissue handy!
