Love can find you when you least expect it . . .
Fireworks. That's what innkeeper Rebecca Campbell wants. And no matter how close their friendship, she and her former fiancé never shared that. Now, with a broken engagement behind her and a promise she's vowed to keep, Rebecca is determined to make a new life for herself in Emerald Lake. She just never expected sparks to fly this quickly . . .
Coming home and falling for his little brother's girl wasn't Sean Murphy's plan. Rebecca's sweet smile and kind heart make Sean feel at home-something he's never felt before. But a secret lingers between them, and no matter how powerful their attraction, Sean can't give his heart to a woman he can't trust. Or can he?
As the days pass, Rebecca and Sean find it harder and harder to deny their desire. And they are in beautiful Emerald Lake, the perfect place for falling in love . . .
Rebecca Campbell wants a love that will be forever. That is why she must break things off with Stu Murphy. She walks right into his room and can not believe what she sees. He begs her not to tell anyone about his secret and to give him time. She agrees but in the morning when she thinks he is going to be there, he isn't. She reads his letter he left for her and can't believe he left her to tell everyone alone. When she tells his parents they also have a letter from Stu saying that is wasn't Rebecca's fault it was his.
Rebecca is running the Inn for Stu and helping out with her friends wedding when she sees a tall, dark and handsome man is watching her from the doorway. When Rebecca finds out that it's the famous Sean she has heard all about from her ex-fiance she is shocked. She always wanted to meet Stu's brother and she almost can't breath from all of the sparks she is feeling.
Sean is upset that Rebecca is keeping a secret, and he wants to know where his brother is. He knows that if he can get through to her, she will tell him. The problem is can he keep his heart in the process?
This is a heart-melting story about love and forgiveness. How someone can show you how to open up your heart. I love how the characters interact with each other. Rebecca isn't a push over and she is a strong women. She has been though a lot and doesn't let it get to her. Sean is a mess and needs someone to love him for who he is. This book is amazing, it will break your heart only to mend it together again!
