Fall in love with this classic romance from fan favorite author Margaret Daley.
Even the humid weather of Magnolia Blossom can’t melt the tension that flares between Rachel Peters and Michael Hunter. High school sweethearts ten years ago, now they’re face-to-face again, and there are a myriad of unanswered questions. Rachel is only back temporarily, to get to know her younger sister and brother again before she takes them away with her. But raising her siblings isn’t as easy as she thought it would be, and as she watches Michael tenderly caring for his own son, she knows she needs help. So he agrees to teach her—about family, and about the small-town life she’d forgotten. But she learns much more—about how she might just decide to stay and make a family—that includes Michael.
Originally published April 2003 in mass market paperback and May 2011 in eBook.
