Welcome to Rockwell Island and the loyal, loving and super-sexy Rockwell family.
Trent Rockwell has it all—a thriving legal practice, co-ownership of the Rockwell Resort, and a big, loving family. And yet his failed marriage to Reese Nicholson has haunted him for ten long years. Now that he has moved back to Cape Cod Bay to help run his family’s resort, he is surrounded by memories of Reese…and he can’t stop longing for the woman he’d always believed was his one true love.…
At nineteen, artist Reese Nicholson was swept off her feet by the handsome, charming, and incredibly sensual Trent Rockwell. After a whirlwind courtship, they married and moved to New York City, where they hoped all of their personal and professional dreams would come true. But six months later, Reese returned to Rockwell Island broken-hearted and disillusioned.
For a decade, Trent and Reese carefully kept their distance. But all it takes is one accidental late-night encounter to immediately stir the desires they have both tried to bury deep. Powerless to resist the heat between them, every passionate kiss, loving caress, and heartfelt apology draws them closer together. So close that they can’t help but wonder if the promises they once made to love each other forever are still true…
Sparks, sparks and more SPARKS!
Reese and Trent fell head over heels in love at first sight! – and heart, body, soul and everything else!
But at 19, with very little life exposure and admittedly sometimes scared of her own shadow, Reese was not ready for life in NYC. Or ready to see what was really chasing Trent Rockwell to succeed at a life off the family island, at all costs.
It took Trent ten years to realise that what he thought he needed to do to prove himself and be happy, was not even close to what he actually needed to be happy! Reese. But after breaking her heart and his promise to many years ago, Trent might never have a chance at letting Reese understand just how much he needs her and how he never stopped loving her.
How do two people forgive and repair the past to find that all consuming love they lost themselves in so many years ago?
Beautiful, beautiful story!
The emotion and chemistry between Reese and Trent jump off every page! From the moment they run into each other again after ten years of avoidance, the want, need and love they still share envelopes you, crawls over your skin and leaves you holding your breath with each page as you root for them to discover just how absolutely perfect they are for each other!
“You’re touch is kryptonite to my mental abilities …” – Reese.
