It’s a promise she intends to keep at all costs

Taylor Preston never breaks a promise, especially to her dying mother about following her dreams to become a successful New York bridal gown designer. But when Taylor unexpectedly loses her high-profile job, she returns early to Last Stand, Texas where she happily spent childhood summers, to help with her cousin’s wedding. On Taylor’s first day back, the boy she left behind twelve years ago comes to her rescue and her sleeping heart inconveniently reawakens.

All during their youth, Ryan “Coop” Cooper played Taylor’s “promise game,” and they never once broke a promise to each other, but that was years ago, and Coop, now an established contractor, isn’t the same person. Building a wedding gift she-shed brings Coop closer to Taylor. They recall their promises – silly and solemn – and realize the spark could easily once again flame.

But Taylor’s life is faraway and Coop, a single father, won’t risk his heart or his daughter’s again…


A reunion dreams are made of! With a delightful sweet romance, Charlene Sands brings her readers a heartfelt reunion of summertime friends and first loves in ONE-OF-A-KIND BRIDE. The characters are fun, their connection feels like they were never apart and the added depth of the family and friends around them makes for a romantic reunion. I loved their story!

Taylor Preston is easy to like. She’s never been shy about being a big city girl in New York City, but her summers spent with family in Last Stand, Texas are some of her fondest memories. When city life gets her down, she heads to TX early to give her cousin some extra help in planning her wedding and who does she run into almost the second she steps foot into town? Her first love … the man she left behind … the man who seems to still make her heart tingle at first sight.

Ryan “Coop” Cooper has a heart of gold. Taylor might have left him behind all those years ago, but he hasn’t held a grudge, and he went on to be happy without her. His life now is a bit different from what he dreamed of though, and he’s doing his best to be the type of father his little girl needs in her life. He can’t let his guard down and bring anymore heartache to either of their lives.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a sweet reunion of first loves with a great supporting cast behind them of friends, family and an adorable little girl.
