Synopses & Reviews
Sandra Brown has won over fans and critics throughout the world with more than fifty New York Times bestselling novels. Her early works were hailed by Rendezvous
magazine as stories with “larger than life heroes and heroines [who] make you believe all the warm, wonderful, wild things in life.” Here is the unforgettable story of a woman who returns to her small hometown in the South—and finds that the sins of her past are right where she left them.
Never. Sunny Chandler always said shed never go back to the tiny town where she grew up. It was just three years ago that she was at the center of a notorious scandal—and the good folks of Latham Green, Louisiana, made it clear theyd never let her forget it. So Sunny packed up and headed for New Orleans, and now she wouldnt give up city life for the world. But when shes invited to her best friends wedding, Sunny has no choice but to go home. And with her return come the whispers…the looks…the rumors she tried to escape. It doesnt take Sunny long to see that Latham Green has nothing new to offer. Except maybe Ty Beaumont.
The moment Ty and Sunny first meet at a party, he can see shes no ordinary woman. With her dazzling hair, and eyes the color of gold, shes a flesh-and-blood fantasy—and Ty vows hell have her in his bed before the week is out. Yet even when he turns on his southern charm, Sunny makes it clear shes not interested. Sure, a night with Ty would be wilder than BourbonStreet at Mardi Gras. But Sunnys not in town to become some good ol boys latest conquest, no matter how sexy he is. Little does she know that Ty isnt used to taking no for an answer—and he isnt about to start now.
Soon what began as an innocent flirtation becomes a tantalizingly slow, skillfully deliberate, and overwhelmingly seductive pursuit that even Sunny finds hard to resist. But resist him she will. For Sunny is harboring an agonizing secret—the painful truth of why she left Latham Green the way she did. What she really needs now is a friend—and thats when she discovers there may be more to Ty Beaumont than meets the eye. Despite his roguish facade, Sunny comes to see he has a heart of gold. Still, she doesnt know if she can trust another person with her secret heartbreak—not even the one man who may be able to heal it.
