A woman whose life has just been turned upside down yet again, a man who is trying to atone for a past he can’t forget... and the journey that brings these two so-not-ready-for-romance people together.
After her ex-rugby star husband dumped her while she was pregnant, Emily Randell is moving on with her baby daughter, Bella. She’s planning to return to her career as a doctor, now that life is calming back down. That is, until she learns that the one, foolish night she spent with her ‘ex’ has left her pregnant. All she wanted to do was make sure she was well and truly over Brad Randell, but what a mistake that was! Now, her life is in turmoil yet again.
A wounded loner, Patrick Coulter is a man with secrets. Living with a burden from which he believes he can never escape, he has a contract to write his life story, and he hopes it will atone for what he has done. He rents a house to focus on the book, which happens to be next door to quirky Sage Lockwood. He can cope with Sage, but he doesn’t count on meeting the woman who is about to change his life – and change him forever. Sage's friend, Emily.
As Emily and Patrick draw closer together and try to move through their own struggles, their feelings for each other grow. But can there ever be a future for two people with such uncertain futures? Can love overcome their very real struggles? Bringing Back Emily is a sweet and heartwarming romance filled with emotion and humour, the third book in the City of Sails series. Winner of the Romance Writers of New Zealand 2021 Koru Award for Best Short Romance.
