“Sharla Lovelace’s quirky characters and realistic Texas settings put her solidly on my auto-buy list.”
—Kelsey Browning, author of the Texas Nights series
Ian was the wild boy every girl dreams of, a renegade who thrived on breaking the law and setting Savi’s body on fire. It was all fun and games and hot excitement, no strings attached, until the one day he got serious—and then disappeared without a trace.
Savi has spent the ten years since committing herself to her work, her daughter, and to not thinking about Ian—or love. Just when it’s possible she might have found the one man who can change her mind, Ian pulls into town, bringing with him all of the lust, danger, and excitement Savi remembers.
As Ian stirs up old feelings and draws Savi back into memories and passion she’s too weak to fight, he’s also digging up dirt on the man Savi is falling for, doing everything he can to prove that Duncan is not who he seems to be. And Savi, unsure whether she can trust either man, will be forced to decide between rekindling a love that never really burned out and building a new one that looks ready to catch fire.
Brent Michaels left Beason's Ferry, Texas, vowing to never return¿until Laura Morgan, the one person he remembers fondly, tempts him back with an irresistible invitation. The town that once shunned him wants him to play the bachelor in a dating game fundraiser. He arrives to discover that sweet little Laura is no longer a shy wallflower. Desire is the last thing he expected to feel for a childhood friend who personifies the girl next door.
Laura is happy in Beason's Ferry for the most part, but there¿s a part of her that yearns to break free, just as Brent did. The chance to move to Houston, where Brent works as a TV news anchor, seems like the perfect opportunity to spread her wings, and explore the new unexpected and enticing adult attraction.
Emotional alarms go off when Brent learns of Laura's plans. He fears the small-town girl will be in over her head in the big city, but Laura has blossomed into a capable woman who surprises him at every turn. Could the man who swears he¿s incapable of love be the one swimming out of his depth?
She has nothing but time . . .
Twenty-four hours. That’s how long Andie Fremont has to say yes—or no. At forty-four with a daughter in college, she’s no young kitten with starry-eyed ideas of what love is. Still, when the man who is everything she should want pops the question with a ring he knows isn’t her style, during a party she didn’t want to have, Andie balks. Something tells her that it isn’t right.
Looking to clear her head, Andie hits the Texas highway in search of an answer. And when she stumbles upon an old roadside diner she decides waffles might be it, at least for now. What she didn’t expect to find was Jesse Montgomery. The man who stole her heart and broke it all in one day, two decades earlier.
As a Texas-size storm takes shape outside, the electricity between Andie and Jesse builds inside. Suddenly Andie is faced with more than just yes or no. As the storm clears there are two men who will want answers.
