Embracing Her Heart (The Bradens and Montgomerys (Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls) Book 1)
Melissa Foster, author
Second chances really do exist... When Grace Montgomery comes home to Oak Falls to teach a screenplay writing class, she doesn't plan on staying long. She has a play to produce in New York City, and she can only take so many small-town celebrations and midnight rodeos before she loses her mind. When one of her sisters' pranks leads her to annoyingly sexy Reed Cross—her first love, and the one man she never wants to see again—Grace is determined not to fall under Reed's spell again—and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten.
Love is sweeter the second time around in the emotional first Love in Bloom contemporary from bestseller Foster. Ten years ago, high school sweethearts Grace Montgomery and Reed Cross broke up their secret romance when they left Oak Falls, Va., to pursue different career paths. Grace is now a successful off-Broadway producer who’s temporarily back in Oak Falls to teach a screenplay writing class. The last person she expects to run into is gorgeous Reed, and neither is prepared for their immediate sexual attraction. Grace and Reed are an irresistible cocktail of hotter-than-hot sex and tender vulnerability, and Grace’s close-knit family and community give the story both hilarity and heart. There isn’t much conflict to test or strengthen the romance, but the sheer depth of Grace and Reed’s love will leave readers feeling utterly sated. (BookLife)
