Welcome to Oak Falls, Virginia, home to horse farms, midnight rodeos, bookstores, coffee shops, and quaint restaurants where you’re greeted like family and treated like treasured guests. Buckle up for a wild ride. Like any Southern girls worth their salt, the sweet-talking, sharp-tongued Montgomery sisters can take men to their knees with one seductive glance or a single sugarcoated sentence.

In EMBRACING HER HEART…
Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again—ruggedly handsome Reed Cross.

Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape.

Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again—and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…

 

Sexy, sweet and downright delicious! With the kick off to a new spin-off series, Melissa Foster uses her signature witty and humorous voice to introduce the Montgomery clan and all of their sass to us! In this first book in the series, we get to go along for the ride as Grace hooks back up with her first love … and starts a whirlwind romance that takes their breath away! The characters are endearing and explosively HOT … and the supporting cast is super fun to get to know. I loved it!

Grace Montgomery never expected a short trip home to Oak Falls, Virginia to put her face to face with her one true love again after all these years. She’s been making all of her dreams come true in New York City since she left town after high school, but when her little sister asks for her help with a project, she figures she could use the break from the rat race anyway and hightails it home. She can’t let the fact that the only man she’s ever loved is standing in front of her again derail her future … she’s heading back to NYC in a matter of weeks!

Reed Cross thought he would never leave Oak Falls, but losing Grace made everything different and he wound up setting up a successful business in Michigan over the years. Things unexpectedly fell apart in the span of a heartbeat when he caught his girlfriend in bed with his business partner and then learned that his Uncle Roy had just suffered a heart attack, so he cut ties and headed home to help his family and start anew. He didn’t expect seeing Grace after all of these years to pack such a wallop. She might deny it and try to keep him at arms length, but it’s obvious the second their eyes meet that those old feelings haven’t died … for either of them!

 

 

 

 

Grace and Reed finally get a second chance at a first love!
