A Nantucket woman returns home to find that reunions aren’t always simple, in this heartwarming novel from the New York Times bestselling author of A Nantucket Wedding and Secrets in Summer.

“Nancy Thayer is the queen of beach books.”—The Star-Ledger

Keely Green always dreamed of leaving the beautiful shores of Nantucket to become a writer. Now she’s a bestselling novelist living in New York City, attending glamorous cocktail parties and mingling with the literary elite. Keely is also dating a charming, perfectly fine pediatric surgeon who looks good on paper but isn’t “the one.” She just can’t bear to break it off—until he declares his desire to settle down. Then Keely’s editor rejects her latest novel. With her personal and professional lives suddenly in shambles, Keely longs for the soothing island way of life.

Growing up, Keely and her best friend, Isabelle, were inseparable. Nothing could come between them—except, as it turned out, Keely’s high school boyfriend, Tommy. Returning home would mean facing Isabelle’s bitter betrayal and seeing for herself the family Tommy and Isabelle have created, the life that might have been Keely’s.

But when Keely’s mother falls into a deep depression, Keely knows what she must do, even though she is reluctant to face her estranged friend. And encountering Isabelle’s older brother, Sebastian—Keely’s longtime crush—only complicates things.

In one incredible summer, Keely must confront the mistakes of the past if she has any chance of finding true happiness in the place she will always call home. Nancy Thayer shines yet again in this uplifting tale of forgiveness and self-discovery.
When powerful, wealthy men meet the women who want to tame them, passion and secrets collide. Don’t miss a single fan-favorite story in this box set from New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks.

Enticed

Bryony Morgan fell hard for hotelier Rafael de Luca… and then he vanished, leaving her pregnant! Now she’s tracked him to his New York gala, determined to get answers from him. But to her shock, Rafael can’t remember her or the sizzling summer nights they shared at his island retreat. When he recreates their time together, secrets he’s hidden are about to come to light…



Wanted

When wealthy developer Ryan Beardsley kicked his cheating fiancée out of his life, he couldn’t help but write her one last check that would cover all expenses she could possibly have… But for some reason, she never cashed it. When he storms back into her life demanding answers, he’s about to uncover a betrayal... but not the one he expects!

Tempted

For Ashley Carter, marrying Devon Carter is a dream come true. Her whole life has been building up to this. But not long after her trip down the aisle, her happily-ever-after notions are dealt a swift blow when she learns their marriage is a business merger orchestrated by her father! But Devon is determined to prove that his love is real… especially since there’s a baby on the way.

Undone

No strings attached? Yeah, right. Pippa Laingley should have known better. When an unplanned evening of passion with Cameron Hollingsworth results in an unplanned pregnancy, she’s at a major crossroads. She knew going in that the sexy entrepreneur didn’t do commitment, that emotions weren’t part of the deal, but she’s determined to show Cam how lasting love can be.

Originally published in 2011 and 2012.

Women.

They’ve always been my weakness. 


There’s a certain line a man shouldn’t cross to get the woman he’s always wanted—especially when that woman belongs to his best friend.


I crossed that line. And now I’ve lost everything that matters.


They say a man has to hit bottom before he rises to the top. I’ve hit bottom—but like a balloon filled with helium I’m working hard as hell to pick myself back up.


Then I meet Carter. She’s irresistible and way too good for me. I’m not ready for her—at least not yet. Plus she’s my buddy’s favorite cousin. I’ve made the mistake of crossing him once, and I sure as hell don’t want to cross him twice. So I’m keeping my distance. But as each day goes by, I’m finding it harder to resist her.
