Ellie Parks is trying to heal from the trauma she endured a year ago, but the demands of her high profile job leave her little time to think about her own needs. The small isolated island off the coast of Charleston sounds like the perfect place to come to terms with her past and hopefully reclaim her joy. The last thing she needs is a man, especially a bad boy hunk in tight jeans, who seems hell-bent on getting her in bed. But Cutter Beaumont isn't going anywhere. Not only is he the sheriff and mayor of Erskine Island, he owns the only tavern.
Cutter can't take his eyes off of pretty Ellie Parks, even though the wall she has built around her would intimidate any man. He does not realize she has unfinished business. Will he go the distance with her or is he only interested in a spring fling?

Cutter does alot on the island, he’s mayor, sheriff, bartender, dog breeder and whatever else is needed he tries to be there.Cutter loved the island and it’s people. But he doesn’t hide the fact he is interested in Ellie. But Ellie had walls up and was a bit rude to Cutter but she had her reasons to act like she did. However she does soon start to heal and Cutter is there for her. Cutter knew when he first seen Ellie she was special. This was a good romance story with some mystery and suspense. I liked the ins and outs of this story especially involving Ellie and Cutter. I really liked the characters, this story It has a good plot and is well written. I recommend. I received an ARC for this story for an honest review.
This is the reissue coming out in May - it has been updated Sweet, tender and sometimes humorous while dealing with an issue some unlucky women still encounter today this is a story I recommend to those who like a book that is an easy to read good story with delightful main and supporting characters. Ellie Parks arrives on Erskine Island for a much needed vacation. She hopes to relax, regroup and find a part of herself that she feels might have been lost. Cutter Beaumont, a flirtatious handsome rogue who wears many hats on the island, takes her to the cottage she has rented. Cutter is somewhat flummoxed by the fact that his usual charm does not immediately work. Ellie meets some of the Gullah population and makes a friend or two including Rosa and her charming young very silent son. With time on her own she contemplates, exercises, makes some friends and begins to open herself to Cutter. With her time on the island nearly finished something happens that might prevent the happily ever after that Cutter and Ellie both deserve. I enjoyed this book. The story, originally written over two decades ago still is viable today. The issues are real, compelling and handled well. Updates have been made but there is still the feel of the past and a wonderful feel it is indeed! Thank you to the author who provided me a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for my honest unbiased review.
