With This KissPaperback - 2012
Rebecca Campbell's life was supposed to be easy. She was set to marry Stu, her best friend, continue working at his family's beautiful, historic inn, and enjoy a happy life. But after catching her fiance in a compromising situation and having an honest heart-to-heart, they decide to split up and Stu disappears, leaving Rebecca to call off the wedding. With his family furious at her, her job in jeopardy, and her family thinking once again that she'll never get her life together, Rebecca holds her head up high...especially when Sean Murphy, Stu's brother, is around. It's clear he blames her for everything--the broken engagement and Stu's disappearance--and she refuses to break her promise to Stu and reveal the secrets she's keeping from his family.
As time passes and Sean and Rebecca work together to keep the inn up and running, they develop an uneasy truce that soon blossoms into an irresistible desire. But Stu's secret looms over them, threatening their fragile love. Can they put the past behind them and to build a future together?
