Bellamy Stone and Shane McGovern shared a storybook, high-school-long romance that made them the envy of Tallulah Cove. That is, until Shane gave up his first love for the college of his dreams and hightailed it out of town without looking back. Twelve years later, Bellamy Stone has built a fulfilling life in Tallulah Cove, without Shane and his promises of forever. She owns her own home and business, has friends, and contributes to her community. So what if her dates lack a certain spark. A girl can't have it all, right?
Shane never intended to see Bellamy again. He'd managed to avoid her for twelve years, through a marriage, the birth of a son, and the death of them both. When one more tragedy strikes, Shane returns to his hometown to stand in for his father in the family business forcing him to face the woman he left behind, his long lost love, and the dormant feelings for her that flare back to life.
Can Shane forgive himself for the way he ended things with Bellamy, the death of his wife and son, and dare to grasp at a second chance at love and happily-ever-after he doesn't believe he deserves?
