Overview

The love of a lifetime, lost but never forgotten...
If he could turn back time, Declan would do things differently. For one, he would've never let go of Iris Blue McLain, the only woman he's ever loved. Fifteen long and lonely years, and the ache in his heart is as painful as ever.
When he sees her for the first time since they parted, she's every bit as pretty as she was years ago. No, she's even prettier. From across the crowded room, she steals his breath. Same silken, flame-colored hair. Same summer-blue eyes and almost the same smile, only now, there's a hint of sadness.
But when he asks her to dance, she wastes no time giving him the brush off.

She'll protect her heart, no matter the cost...
The years haven't been kind to Iris. It all started when Declan broke up with her, leaving her heart shattered. After her car wreck, things went from bad to worse. Now, to top it all off, Declan strolls back into her life, acting like he's got a right to be there. She can't risk a second heartbreak. But some things never change, like the way his eyes remind her of his slow seduction, or his work-roughened hands that promise a gentle caress.
For a moment, the years melt away and Iris wonders if she and Declan might have a second chance. But time can't heal all wounds, and for two broken people, the secrets of the past threaten to break them once again.

Returning for Love is the fourth novel in the Long Valley world, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. It has some strong language, and oh my, sexy times. Enjoy!

Returning for Love is another great romance from Erin Wright. Erin writes amazing characters with believable problems. The chemistry between Iris and Declan is off the charts.This is just another wonderful story in the Long Valley series. Erin never disappoints - and I can never put the books down once I start.

Iris is a nurse but after her accident, she can’t work any longer in the same position. Declan has problems reading, all the letters think the same and that is because he is dyslexic. However, he is a good person and he works hard on his farm. A sweet story about two people who think they are not whole because of a disability. They are afraid to let people know about their feelings and it takes awhile to be able to speak about it. They need to trust each other with their problems and realize that asking for help is not as bad as it looks. I like Erin’s stories because their characters are honest people and I like honesty. She has a way with words to show us the feelings of her characters and I think that is one of the best assets for an author. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.

We are introduced to the whole famdamily at Wyatt;s wedding where Declan sees his former girlfriend, Iris. He discovers she's been in an accident and now walks with a cane. He decides to ask her out on one date, just to show that he is an equal opportunity dater. To his surprise, it's like slipping back in time and his feelings for Iris reemerge. The reader watches as both Iris and Declan learn each other again. The love is there, unfortunately they both have issues with communications. It's a beautiful story dealing with miscommunications, or maybe no communication, but love blossoms... Wonderful story!

Sweet, funny, quirky, emotionally engaging and easily relate-able small town second chance romance. Highly entertaining reading that kept me reading all night long. Declan is sweet, charming and the sexy peacemaking middle son. He has a deep secret he only ever told one person and now that person is gone. Iris is smart, sexy and a sassy independent woman back home to recover after a car accident impairs her natural balance. She is also the only woman Declan ever truly loved. Such a sweetly charming romantic journey, love visiting Long Valley and look forward to my next visit.

HS Sweethearts/Second Chance At Love I am voluntarily reviewing an advanced reader copy of this book, Returning For Love By Erin Wright. My love of Erin’s work grows with each book of hers I read. Her writing style is exceptional! I love getting immersed in her books, with her funny, entertaining, sweet, lovable, crazy characters. They are very real and relatable with everyday issues and situations. Erin’s Long Valley Series is one of my favorites!! Declan has loved Iris since HS. Breaking up and being apart for years has not changed that. Seeing Iris at his brother’s wedding is a complete shock to Declan, but he sees it as a second chance to be with the love of his life. Will Iris see it the same way? Does she still love Declan? Is love enough or will their secrets keep them apart?

Obstacles! by Katyjane I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. It was a wonderful romance! I loved that Declan still had strong feelings for Iris all these years and did not give up on them. They both had obstacles that they needed to over come and talk about it with each other and makes relationships stronger. I liked that Erin Wright chose to do a story where the main character had dyslexia, I loved the the whole story and everything that Iris and Declan went through to get each other back, the dialog was strong and the concept of the story was fantastic. I loved it!

RETURNING. FOR. LOVE by Erin Wright a Long Valley Romance book 4 Declan, the only one not married, at the wedding he spotted Iris, love of his life. She is back, but not as she was before dreams and plans had changed drastically for her. He doesn't seem to mind, the cane,but she didn't want to be an embarrassment for him or others. This is a beautiful story, of Iris finally seeing herself, as so much more. If needed she knew that Declan would be there to hold her up. Readers will love this story and feel the emotions of Iris. Looking forward to the next story. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.

Declan helped Jennifer with the last-minute preparation for Wyatt and Abby’s wedding being held in the Miller Family barn. The ladies had done a great job of making everything perfect! He gave his groom’s toast amid laughter at Warren’s expense. Chloe then took her turn toasting the bride. As Declan glanced around, his past came crashing back on him. Having left town 15 years ago, Iris was here in Sawyer! But before he could talk to her, his brother, Stetson, dragged him off to load up the tables in the truck. Jennifer joined Stetson and Declan as they “decorated” Wyatt’s truck with the “Just Married” touch – he was going to have a fit! Jennifer asked who the redhead was that Declan talked to. At mention of Iris’ name, Jennifer said, “Poor girl,” and Declan asked her what she meant. Finally he would learn her secret! He felt horrible when he learned that she had balance problems as a result of a car accident – and he had no doubt embarrassed her by asking her to dance! Not wanting Iris to think he was avoiding her because of her disability, Declan knew he had to at least ask her out once. They began dating again, each holding on to secrets. But secrets have a way of coming out. Will they hold on to their second chance? Or will they let pride and stubbornness ruin the best thing to ever come along? This was a very well written, enjoyable book, with just the right touch of humor. The characters were developed so well that they felt like old friends. The emotions the reader felt were real! The story line was excellent, putting the reader right in the middle of the celebration, only to face the shock/delight of seeing that Iris had returned to Sawyer. The book was wonderful, including the beautiful cover, and I highly recommend it!

Declan Miller is the Best Man at his brother Wyatt's wedding. Now that both of his brother's are happy, in love, and their futures are set it's Declan's turn so say's his sister-in-laws. They have been setting him up on blind dates, but they are wasting their time. Declan found his true love in High School, and walked away from her in college. Declan gives his Best Man speech, sits down, and he can't believe she's back in town. Iris, the one who holds Declan's heart. Iris McClan is back in town and attends the Miller wedding with her parents. She hides from Declan until she can't anymore. She needs to see him. Right as Iris looks up Declan is looking at her, and once the Maid of Honor finishes her speech he comes directly to her. Declan and Iris never stopped loving each other, but they both have issues they are dealing with. This second chance love story is beautifully written, and it will take you on an emotional roller coaster. It pulls you in, grabs at your heart, and has you pulling for Declan and Iris to find the ability to trust one another in order to get their happily ever after. I volunteered to review an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

“Returning for Love” is the fourth novel in Ms. Wright’s contemporary western romance Long Valley series and it is Declan Miller’s story. Declan Miller broke up with Iris Blue McLain 15 years ago without any explanation. The years have changed both of them and their past secrets and current wounds threaten to derail their second chance at love and an HEA. Erin Wright weaves an emotional and romantic story that is flawlessly written with characters that are well developed and a plot that holds the readers interest and is believable. Both have personal issues that must be addressed both separately and together and that makes for a compelling story that I really enjoyed reading. Erin Wright’s writing style does not disappoint. Her storylines flow smoothly, the editing is always perfect and I love her epilogues. I highly recommend “Returning for love.” You will enjoy it as much as I did.

I really enjoyed this book. I love the vulnerability ms. wright puts into her characters. It makes the book, the story so much more. You find yourself, rooting for the characters, getting angry for and with the characters, frustrated, exasperated, excited and happy as they do. I love a story that makes me feel like i am a part of it, that gives me a great ride from start to finish and that is exactly what happens when you read this book

Second Chances Declan was making sure everything was ready for his brothers wedding. He knew he would never marry unless she moved back. Iris was there with her parents for Wyatt's wedding. He saw her, he didn't know about the accident. They lost 15 years can they make it work.
