Overview

Sometimes first loves burn bright, then flicker out. But in this heartwarming eBook novella from RITA finalist and New York Times bestselling author Ruthie Knox, it’s never too late for a second chance at true love.
 
Ambitious and driven, Carson Vance couldn’t wait to escape the small town where he was born. But now that Carson is back to spend Christmas with his ailing father, he must face all the people of Potter Falls he’s left behind. Topping that list is Julie Long, who’s sacrificed so much for Carson’s family, and whose heart he broke once upon a time. Now the proprietor of the local inn, Julie has blossomed from a shy schoolgirl into a successful, seductive, independent woman—everything that Carson’s looking for in a relationship. But despite several steamy encounters under the mistletoe, Julie refuses to believe in happily ever after. Now Carson must convince Julie that he’s back for good—and that he wants her in his life for all the holidays to come.

Meet the Author

New York Times bestselling author Ruthie Knox writes contemporary romance that’s sexy, witty, and angsty—sometimes all three at once. Her debut novel, Ride with Me, is probably the only existing cross-country bicycling love story. She followed it up with About Last Night, a London-based romance whose hero has the unlikely name of Neville, and then Room at the Inn, a Christmas novella—both of which were finalists for the Romance Writers of America’s RITA Award. Her four-book series about the Clark family of Camelot, Ohio, has won accolades for its fresh, funny portrayal of small-town Midwestern life. Ruthie also writes New Adult romance as Robin York. She moonlights as a mother, Tweets incessantly, and bakes a mean focaccia. She’d love to hear from you, so visit her website and drop her a line.

    Cute, sweet contemporary romance...

    Sometimes you have to travel the world to realize that what you really want and need is what you left behind. Small towns are difficult for some to grow up in, they can't wait to leave it and make there mark in the world, to scratch the itch that staying still in a small place brings them. Sometimes two people meet and have a relationship but not at the right time in their lives for one of them to commit. If they are really lucky when that person is ready the chance will still be there waiting for them. That is the case for Carson Vance who has come home for the holidays to help his father and finds the woman he left behind still there, the woman whose heart he broke. 

    Julie Long met Carson Vance in college. She's originally from the city from a well to do family but she never fit into that world.  Carson took her to his home town and she found her place and never left but Carson could not stay so she had to let him go. Through the years when Carson visited they would pick things up again, it was her choice to let it happen for she knew he would still not stay but this time she is older and wiser and is determined to keep things platonic. But how can she do that when he is the only person that has truly ever made her feel.

    This is a cute, sweet contemporary romance,  a second chance at lasting love. The hero has done his traveling and though he still feels the wanderlust it does not drive him as it once did, there is no satisfaction in it anymore. Can having Julie again be the thing that grounds him this time? She is for him what he is for her, the one there really ever was. Julie has grown into a remarkable woman, successful in her business, independent and sexy. Even without the family and small town resident meddling he is as ever drawn to her but he first must face the things in himself that sent him wandering and decide on what he really wants out of life. The time has come for Carson Vance to make peace with everything.
