On Sale for January
A contemporary romance, realistic, sexy, and emotional.
Divorced and lonely, Dr. Matt Winston isn’t doing much to remedy the situation until he attends his class reunion and reconnects with Brenda, the classmate who used to compete with him for top grades. Dr. Brenda Hammer, a successful psychologist, lives with her teenage daughter, Mia, a challenging kid to say the least. Traumatized by her previous relationship, Brenda has vowed to stay clear of relationships until her daughter is in college. Even so, reminiscing over lunch about high school and first kisses with her handsome classmate can’t hurt.
Attraction sizzles between Matt and Brenda. Matt understands that she is focused on her career and her daughter’s education, but he is patient and persistent. Determined to prove that she can trust him, he bonds with the teenager who’s been missing a father figure for years. Mia benefits from his open-minded influence, and Brenda enjoys their laid-back dates. Happiness finally seems within grasp for mother and daughter until the bullies in Mia’s class pull her into their web again.
Brenda’s past return to haunt her when Mia’s father enters the picture. Crushed by this new betrayal, Matt steps away. Is there any hope left for Matt and Brenda to build a future together?
