Will a decades old rivalry end a love of a lifetime?

When a family tragedy struck, Ella Moretti left college behind and returned home to her small town of Willow Cove. She had only planned on staying for a few weeks, but seven years later she's still working in her family's restaurant and living with her grandfather. Ella is used to putting others before herself, but when a handsome stranger sits next to her on a bus ride home, she wonders what life would be like if she put herself first.

After a long miserable day of travel, to stay with a grandfather he only met a few years ago, Lucas Prescott is instantly taken by the gorgeous brunette sitting next to him. It's not until the next day that he learns their grandfathers are embattled in a decades old rivalry that threatens to keep them apart.

Neither wanting to betray their family, they start a secret love affair, but when the past resurfaces, and old feuds refuse to stay buried, Ella and Lucas have to decide if their forbidden love is worth the consequences.

NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay writes fascinating, realistic contemporary romances. Her specialty is troubled teenagers. A teacher in a public school for years, she knows kids and the men and women who teach them, as evidenced by this new book in the Bayview Heights series!

 

From gang kid, to famous heart surgeon…John Battaglia is back with his own book. So is the love of his life, Meg Mancini, who he abandoned in his quest for the brass ring. Delve into the world of heart surgery and, once again, into the brutal society of gang life.

 

John is proud of his rise in the ranks of the medical field. At only thirty-six, he’s performed more surgeries and had more success than most doctors in the middle of their careers. He hasn’t forgotten his roots, though. The Lansing family is still near and dear to him. He’s happy and content with his life. But his outlook changes when he sees Meg again at a shelter where they both volunteer. Old feelings deluge him as their past together resurfaces.

 

Meg wants nothing to do with hotshot Johnny Battaglia. She was crazy about him years ago, but he broke her heart when he chose a different path from the one they’d planned together. Though she’s satisfied with her life, she’s never found anyone to fill the hole Johnny left in her. But she knows better than to let him get close again.

 

However, when gang member Dash Bodine, who resembles Johnny in looks and circumstances, brings John and Meg together, they can’t avoid each other. And when they’re together, passion flares. Is that enough? Or will past mistakes preclude any kind of happily-ever-after?

 

Also, look for appearances by the beloved O’Neils, who are also involved in gang prevention.

 

If you like the Bayview Heights series, stories about troubled teens and medical romance be sure to read COP OF THE YEAR, BECAUSE IT’S CHRISTMAS, COUNT ON ME and IF YOU WERE MINE.
