It started one unexpected night that didn’t go as planned. But it ended up following her to work, home and possibly into forever…
Melanie Rydell meets a strange man that she has a strong connection with on the very night she comes home to River’s End with new ambitions for her life. A short fling is not in her plans, so she refuses to give him her name, or take his. But she can’t deny their amazing weekend and agrees to consider seeing him again.
Melanie is a successful artist who jointly works in the construction field. Reporting to work framing houses in the Rydell River Valley, she comes face to face with the man she had shared everything with that one weekend. Everything but her name.
Kyle Wade has family connections in the Rydell River Valley that were the source of his greatest trauma, shame, rejection, and pain. But now he’s working ten miles from that place. Forced to be there, he lets the short fling with the mysterious woman, help soothe the bitter taste of being back in this valley. But when the woman shows up as his employee… all thoughts and plans morph into making sure no one finds out what was between them. Even as Kyle can’t resist the unique person he finds in Melanie Rydell.
What Melanie doesn’t realize is the intense connection that her boss has to the rest of her family. It is not a small thing and something that will change everything between everyone, but most especially between them.
"This whole series has been absolutely thrilling. When Leanne writes, her characters aren’t perfect. They are human, with human flaws and disabilities. Whether this series or one of her others, they are believable. In this book, Melanie has dyslexia like her mother Erin Rydell. But unlike Erin’s, her was caught early a gave her a different way to see things, but she’s tough and wants everything life has to offer. What she wasn’t expecting was how attracted she was to Kyle from the start..." Mindy, Amazon Reviewer

Didn't know it was possible to always like the next book in a series just a little better than the last one, but it does happen!" --Norma, Amazon Reviewer
"Another great addition to this series! This book is Melanie's story and it was a great one. Melanie is the daughter of Jack and Erin Rydell. She is a free spirit and looking for her place in the world. She has decided to come back home and figure out her next move. Mel meets in Kyle in a bar and they spend the weekend together not knowing that Kyle is Melanie's new boss on the job site. This book was an emotional journey for both of them as well as the Rydell family. I really enjoyed reading it!
Thank you for the privilege of reading this book! Well done,""--LLS, Amazon Reviewer
