Overview

Rosalie gave up her dreams of being a singer for love. But when her beloved young husband dies leaving her to raise two boys alone, the spunky widow takes on two jobs to keep her family afloat- secretary to a law firm by day, waitress at The Edge of Paradise Café by night. Years later, a second marriage proved disastrous. When the not-so-nice Mr. Brown passes away, Rosalie becomes the talk of the town by refusing to wear widow’s weeds. The scandalous Widow Brown closes ranks with her now college-age boys and swears off men forever.

Her plan might have worked if David Kelly hadn’t moved next door. A dangerously sexy ex-cop, haunted by the thought that he let his female partner – and the love of his life – die in a drug deal gone bad, he has vowed never again to be any woman’s protector.

But that was before he met Rosalie. That was before a stray dog adopted him and Rosalie’s college boys welcomed him and Rosalie’s boss made sure David always had table two at The Edge of Paradise Café.

When David’s passion for Rosalie spirals out of control, he knows he must leave to protect the woman he loves. Before he goes, he wants to help her claim her dream. But Rosalie refuses to take without giving. She drives a bargain that seals their fate.

    Loved

    This was a great romance. The happily ever after kind. Usually I read about weres and vamps, but I need this kind of story once in a while. Nothing dangerous, just love. (And a few tears)

    Hero is Superb!

    I was so excited to see this classic from my favorite author! The extraordinarily talented Peggy Webb has entertained me for years. I jumped at the chance to revisit this sensual and tender romance. Accolades were heaped on The Edge of Paradise on publication, and it has stood the test of time. You will find the hero totally amazing! Don't miss this wonderful book!

    Classic Peggy Webb Romance+++Highly Recommended+++

    A single mother working two jobs to support her children while putting her dream on hold. Can you say strong, determined woman?? Along comes a man that encourages her to pursue her dreams... It is the perfect set up for a wonderful "life" story. There is nothing more satisfying than being able to reach for your dream with the support of family and friends. I LOVED IT! It is a timeless story and I encourage you to read it!

    One of my favorites

    "Nobody does tender-but-steamy romance like Peggy Webb! I was sucked into this book from page one and couldn't put it down. Though it's a classic, the story is timeless - finding love when you think all hope is gone. This is another great read from the talented Peggy Webb!"

    Wonderful and Timeless!!

    "I love all Peggy Webb's classic romances, but I especially enjoyed and related to this one because of the scrappy heroine working two jobs to put her boys through college. And who wouldn't love that tortured Cop hero! This book is wonderful and timeless."
