The New York Times bestselling author of Love After All and the Play-by-Play series delivers a new novel about how love sometimes has plans of its own. Having left his hometown of Hope years ago, only one thing could persuade architect Reid McCormack to come home for a lengthy stay-the challenge of renovating a historic building. But once the job is finished, he'll be headed back to Boston, no matter how much he's drawn to beautiful florist Samantha Reasor. Samantha watches over her elderly grandmother and pours a piece of herself into every floral creation she designs. Her crush on Reid has been blooming for a while now, but she's reluctant to act on it. A temporary fling isn't what she's looking for, even if Reid is smoking hot and super sexy. She wants a real, permanent, forever kind of love. Two people with different goals couldn't possibly work, and yet as their attraction grows into something deeper, maybe falling in love is the one thing Samantha and Reid can build a future on.
Jaci Burton is the USA Today and New York Times bestselling author of the Hope Novels, including Love After All, Hope Burns, Hope Ignites, and Hope Flames, and the Play by Play series, including Quarterback Draw, Straddling the Line, Melting the Ice, and more. She lives in Oklahoma with her husband and dogs. A lover of sports, Jaci can often tell what season it is by what sport is being played. She watches entirely too much television, which she considers "book research." When she isn't on deadline, Jaci can be found at her local casino, trying to become a millionaire (so far, no luck). She's a total romantic and loves a story with a happily ever after, which you'll find in all her books.
