The message was undeniable… Fight for her.

Six months after her divorce, Hope St. Cloud is struggling with her guilt over leaving her daughter’s father. She needs a fresh perspective, and she knows exactly how to find it—by spending the summer at her family’s cottage in Sea Glass Cove. Surrounded by abundant peace and fond childhood memories, Hope and her daughter will be able to find a new rhythm with just the two of them.


Nothing could’ve prepared her for the immediate and tantalizing attraction to local gallery owner Owen McKinney. Or for his instant connection with her shy daughter.

It’s been three years since the accident that stole everything Owen held dear. That’s more than enough time to mourn and move on, but he can’t seem to let go… until Hope and her adorable daughter stroll into his gallery. In them, he finds everything he lost—all the joy and adventure that comes with being a family. But Hope’s divorce is still fresh, and he’s afraid she might’ve made a mistake divorcing her husband.

Then a sign straight from his past makes it clear he can’t let them walk away.

About the author

Suzie O'Connell is the USA Today bestselling author best known for the Northstar romances.
 
Though she is a self-professed mountain-loving nerd, she has a fair amount of salt water in her veins, courtesy of her "salty dog" grandfather, and once in a while, she gets to craving the crashing ocean surf. It was during one of these episodes that the Sea Glass Cove series was conceived.
 
Suzie has been writing stories for as long as she can remember, and it shouldn't come as any surprise that her first story, written (and illustrated) way back in second grade, was about the mouse who went to the sea.
 
When she isn't writing, you'll probably find her in the mountains with a camera in hand and enjoying the beauty of Montana with her husband Mark, their daughter Maddie, and their golden retrievers Reilly and Angus. You might even find her--on her rare trips to the coast--getting in touch with her inner pirate. Just kidding. Sort of.

Five years after his wife died in his arms, Aaron Hammond doesn’t think he’ll ever be ready to love another woman, but Skye Hathaway's arrival in Northstar will test that theory.

 

Skye is still reeling from walking in on her philandering husband and his mistress, and with the ink not yet dry on her divorce, the last thing she needs is to get tangled up with a handsome widower and his charming daughter. With those sad eyes and a patient attentiveness, Aaron could be exactly the soothing balm her bruised heart needs, but she has every intention of steering well clear of him… until his adorable little girl decides to take matters into her own hands.

 

Wounded and wary after her failed marriage, Skye immediately captures Aaron’s attention. As he coaxes her out of her painful memories, he finds himself facing an intriguing possibility—that life may yet have a lasting love in store for him. But can he let go of his wife and open his heart fully to Skye? Because Skye won’t compete with a ghost for his heart. She has been competing with other women for her husband for too long, and she deserves better.
