Grace Romano had been seventeen, impressionable, innocent to the power of attraction and desire.
Max Ruhland taught her about both. He loved Grace and thought they had a future together, until she crushed his heart and told him he wasn’t part of her life plan.
Twenty-two years later, Grace Romano Clarke is a widow with two children and a pile of broken dreams. When her aunt dies, she must return to Magdalena, the town she’d rather forget, to honor the woman’s last wishes: stay in her house for thirty days, and complete a list that, according to her aunt, will reveal a bit about life and maybe reveal something about herself, too. What Grace doesn’t know but will find out soon enough is that Max Ruhland must stay in the house with her and help complete the list!
Max Ruhland isn’t the same lovesick puppy from the wrong side of the tracks who had his heart broken all those years ago. He’s a wealthy, successful businessman who owes his good fortune to Grace’s aunt, the woman who never gave up on him. Max can have any woman he wants, but he’s never forgotten Grace, or how she hurt him. Now he’ll have to spend the next thirty days with her—in close quarters—to honor her aunt’s last wishes, and he’s not looking forward to it.
It’s going to get very interesting as the town watches and wonders what’s going on between those two. Of course, Pop Benito understands exactly what’s happening in the house on Bayberry Street, even if Max and Grace don’t. He’s the one who helped Grace’s aunt create the thirty-day list, which he insists will finally get this couple their happily-ever-after!

Luke Donovan is the irresistible bad boy every woman wants and no woman can catch. Long- term? Marriage? Children? No thanks, not interested. Until he meets Helena Montrey. There’s something about her reserved manner and fresh-faced beauty that pulls him in, obliterates past notions of love and relationships, and makes him wantto commit—to her. Damn, but he’s finally fallen in love! Gone are the bad-boy ways and reckless wandering, replaced with professions of forever and a vow to become respectable. It’s time to face up to past mistakes. Returning to his hometown of Reunion Gap and the family he deserted is the first step. Besides, Luke wants his family to meet Helena, the woman who changed his life.
Too bad he doesn't know she’s not who she says she is.
After her fiancé’s betrayal makes her question her ability to tell an honest man from a liar, Helena Montrey shies away from men. Then she meets Luke Donovan. Her heart wants to tell him she’s not the struggling waitress and wannabe-writer he thinks she is, but the creator of the well-known and very lucrative Annabelle Grace Greeting Card line. But her brain forces her to wait until she’s sure the former bad boy with an admitted penchant for the open roads and constant change is in this for keeps.
When the couple arrives in Reunion Gap, the Donovans are waiting for them with a lot of questions and a ton of concerns. How is it that a woman they've never heard of ends up with a man who’s vowed he’ll never be tied down? Who’s the woman? What's her backstory? And more importantly, what if anything is she hiding? The truth will come out as it always does, and then Luke will have to decide if he loves Helena enough to forgive her and give her a second chance or if he really ismeant to wander the open roads—alone—for the rest of his days.
Don’t worry, the Donovans aren’t going to stand by and watch this heartbreak happen without getting involved. After all, what’s family for if not to get involved? Stay tuned!
