|| SYNOPSIS || Sophie Calvert has planned every second of her life. That all changes after she meets Ian Ridley. Suddenly the woman who never wanted to get married is forgetting everything -- including her plans. Which is why she ends up eloping...and why she runs once she discovers that the only reason Ian married her is that she's pregnant with his child.
Come on down to the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. You'll find the Calverts, a family that's been living and loving here for over a hundred years. A few Calverts have left, but somehow they always seem to come home...
|| FROM THE AUTHOR || Welcome back to Bardill's Ridge, Tennessee, and to the Calvert family, who you met in September's The Secret Father. Are you ready to meet Sophie and her new husband, Ian?
Sophie's not so sure she's ready for Ian. She marries him because she believes they both want to create a family for their unborn child, but seconds after the wedding she hears him telling his best friend that he had to marry her because she was carrying his child.
She confronts him. He admits "forever" sounds impossible to a bodyguard who's never been home long enough to own a pet, but he's determined to try. He's so determined he follows Sophie to Tennessee, where he uses her family against her. They remind her how unhappy she was because of her own parents' divorce, and Ian convinces her he cares enough to make their marriage real. But can she see forever now that he's broken her trust?
|| REVIEW || I am not a fan of all Harlequin books, having found some of the writing lacking in depth, but Anna Adams does an amazing job and raises the bar for Harlequin. She brings surprising understanding to relationships and interactions between characters that I have found missing in many of the romances I've read. -- Judi from Bloomington, Indiana
