Overview

Sweeter Than the First Time
Lanessa Thomas is proud of her life. She recovered from addiction, and started her own successful business. She wants to repair the damage she did to those who loved her most, especially Alexander St. Romaine. They shared a love that Lanessa managed to destroy, but at least Alex found happiness. When they meet again, Lanessa is determined to be his friend, and nothing more. After all, you can't turn back the hands of time.
Alex has moved on, or so he thinks. He decided long ago to forgive and forget, and he's happy that Lanessa has conquered her demons. Alex is convinced that he can be cordial, and even have a friendly lunch with Lanessa now and then. Until he looks into her eyes, hears her voice, and feels the same heat from the old days.
When Lanessa uncovers possible criminal wrongdoing, the ruthless businessmen set out to destroy her reputation. Alex and Lanessa have to overcome distrust from the past to hold on to the one love neither got over.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Recovering alcohol and drug addict Lanessa Thomas is the atypical heroine in Emery's (A Time to Love) refreshing romance about second chances. Three years of sobriety and success at a thriving research company have transformed Lanessa, but can't prepare her for a confrontation with her lost love, Alex St. Romaine. Sparks fly when the handsome and newly divorced computer consultant unexpectedly forgives Lanessa's past transgressions, and the two vow to start anew. But instead of settling into the staid family life Alex proposes (which includes developing a relationship with his bratty twin daughters from his previous marriage), Lanessa slips into her old routine, leading to another breakup. Reacquainting herself with Baton Rouge's movers and shakers, Lanessa unwittingly gets involved in a dangerous and illegal business scheme. Emery's sense of Southern decorum shows throughout the fast-paced narrative, particularly when Alex, despite their breakup, gallantly steps in to save Lanessa. (Oct.)
