Romance author Dakota Laurens believes that happily-ever-afters exist only between the covers of her sexy novels. But to her surprise, she finds a real-life hero when she meets a handsome emergency room doctor. The outspoken author feels an instant and intense attraction to Dr. Walt Eddy, and the feeling is mutual. When the globetrotting doctor pulls a disappearing act on Dakota, she’s prepared to write him off…until fate brings a blindsiding twist to her story.
Still scarred from a past tragedy, Walt may have disappeared on Dakota, but now he’s determined to win her back. For the first time in years, he knows he’s ready for a new chance at love. Yet between Dakota’s doubts and two sets of meddling parents, can the once-blissful couple finally create the bright, loving future they desperately want?
About the Author: Catherine Bybee

New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee was raised in Washington State, but after graduating from high school, she moved to Southern California with the hope of becoming a movie star.

She has penned the popular Weekday Brides series as well as the beloved Not Quite series. She resides in Southern California with her husband and two sons.

My Review: It isn't often I find a series I want to sit (unpatiently) and wait for the next one.  It isn't often I feel a bit of a lost feeling after reading the last book.  In my opinion (I read over 200 books a year EASILY) these effects ensure that the writer is superb at what they do.  Catherine has a skill for bringing you into the story and feeling the passions just as strongly as the characters are feeling them.  She is highly skilled and as someone who has begun her own journey into writing recently...this book resonated even more with me.  The Character of Dakota was so true to herself but able to do what she loved and it is awe inspiring how both Walt III and Dakota listened to their hearts instead of their parents desires for them.  I am truly hoping to see a story for Mary and Glen soon!  Very exciting series! 5 out of 5 again!!
