Marti Willis left her hometown of Leesburg, Virginia eleven years ago to chase her life time dream of becoming an editor at one of the most prominent publishing companies in New York. After graduating from NYU, she landed her dream job and married a friend from college. After six years of a rocky marriage and learning she couldn't have children, she divorced her husband and moved back home to take over her mother’s book store. Running into her old flame, Brad Mason, was foremost on her mind. They had been madly in love when she left for New York and Brad wanted to marry her. But his life was in Leesburg, so Marti made the tough decision to break ties with Brad and pursue her dream. The fact is, she's never stopped thinking about Brad and how much she wished she'd stayed. But not being able to have kids was something she didn't want for him. He had his heart set on having a family and she couldn't take that away from him. He'd be much better off without her.
Brad Mason had never loved any other woman but Marti Willis. He kept up with her life through her mother. When he learned that Marti and her husband divorced, he knew deep down that she would come back to him and they would be together. He began making plans for their future before he'd even seen or heard from her. He'd always known they were meant to be together. It was just a matter of time, and now that she's returning to Leesburg, the time has come to claim her as his own once again. His patience has paid off and now he can have the family he's always wanted.
When Brad and Marti come face to face, the old flame ignites uncontrollably and Marti finds herself struggling to keep her distance from him. Brad is relentless in his pursuit of her and all he can think of is taking her home with him and never letting her go again.
Marti falls under Brads spell and into his bed only to break his heart once again with the revelation that she can't have children. Brad is shocked and speechless, causing Marti to run away in despair and with yet another broken heart.
Will Brad be able to overlook having a family and love only Marti, or will his dream of having a family tear their love apart for good?

This is a really cute short story about second chances. The story moves quickly as the characters reconnect after eleven long years. Both have changed but their love has never died. Undying love and a belief in fate make this story an enjoyable read. Gifted a copy for review
35 pages, REALLY! ! ! This author, Ana B Ronning, writes really sappy romance novels. She has this r e a l l y bad habit of creating stories that are so unrealistic, like people meeting, falling in love, pledging to each other and within three weeks marrying. If I want science fiction, I'll read about vampires and werewolves.
