Good book. Ryder and Melanie had known each other as children. He had taken on the role of protector, watching over her and being her friend. When those feelings started turning into something stronger he ended their relationship (she was only 16). Ten years later, her grandmother had left her house to Melanie and her two cousins, so she returned to St. Mary's.

Ryder Caldwell had been a close friend of Melanie Duncan throughout her childhood. Things changed once Ryder went off to college. Ryder's brother, David, got Melanie pregnant and Melanie was banished to avoid scandal. This is the story of Melanie's homecoming 10 years later. Good story.

I really loved this book. What a voice Karen Templeton has! I'll be sure to be picking up her other books soon. Ryder, the hero, is such a good guy. Exactly how I like my hero to be. And Mel, our heroine, is full of fire and spunk and just the one to get this guy going.

I don't give 5 stars often, but this one curled my toes from s

I spent about 2/3s of this thinking it was kind of lame, but the last third saved it! It has a very distinct voice and I'm looking forward to the others in the series.

Good read. Simple easy story of a chance to renew a childhood love. Very typical Harlequin.
