The next in USA Today bestselling author Darcy Burke's sexy and emotional family saga about seven siblings who reunite in a small Oregon town to fulfill their brother's dying wish…
Years ago, golden boy Kyle Archer left Ribbon Ridge without a word. Now, with heartbreak on the verge of tearing his family apart, the black sheep is back, and he's determined to regain their trust by uncovering the truth behind Alex's death. But the moment he confronts Maggie Trent—the therapist his parents blame for the tragedy—Kyle is stunned by his powerful attraction to the beautiful doctor … and drawn to her like no woman he's ever met before.
When gorgeous, charismatic Kyle approaches Maggie about his brother's death, she agrees to help him search for answers. And as they piece together Alex's last days, their undeniable chemistry turns too hot to ignore. After their relationship becomes more serious than either anticipated, Kyle may be forced to choose between the woman he's desperate to hold on to and the family he almost let slip away.
Going to be a good series
I loved Darcy Burkes historical series so thought I'd give this contemporary romance a try. This is the second in a series of stand alone romance novels, that, from the first in the series that I've read, I'd put on par with Bella Andre or Barbara Freethy. Overall good writing, interesting characters. My biggest criticism of this book is that the ending came a little too neatly. It seemed there was too much preamble into the whole family that Burke ran out of time and just suddenly snapped her fingers and all the tension that built in the book was instantly resolved. I love a happy ending, this one just didn't feel completely genuine. Even still, I'll go back and read Sara's story (book one).
