A second chance romance.
Suspense. Small town.
Fall in love with the McAllisters of Seaview, Maine in the 1st of this contemporary romance series with plenty of sweet, steamy, and a dash of suspense.
Resilient to the core, Maddy McAllister has worked hard to overcome losing everything to her abusive ex. But when he comes back with plans to win her back at any cost, while destroying the town that turned their back on him, Maddy has to face her past head-on.
No stranger to danger, former deep-sea diver Chase Anderson will be there for Maddy every step of the way – if she’ll let him. Passion ignites when these two reunite and can no longer ignore the sparks between them.
When Maddy’s past threatens to crush everything she cares about, her world is turned upside down. And, maybe that’s not a bad thing…
No one else made her heart thunder quite so rapidly. Her heart leapt into her throat. Words… and, well, the ability to think entirely, flew right out of her brain as she saw him come around the corner. She hadn't seen Chase in over a decade, and here he was, walking right out of her parent's kitchen like he owned the place. Never lacked for confidence, that one.
And now she was officially embarrassed.
Aiden fired back, and would have jumped out from his seat if Payson hadn’t held him by the arm, "What? That was your first? Chase, what the...? That's my sister."
Chase shook his head at his friend and smiled innocently, "Which is why I saved her from herpes. Your sister. My friend. Thought you'd thank me for that." He smugly grinned as he took a swig of his own beer.
He pulled on a McAllister Fisheries black t-shirt and padded across the bedroom carpet. He needed to think about something else before it drove him crazy. Thinking about the what-ifs. If she didn’t feel the same way about him. If she wouldn’t let him in.
When the bell rang at 7:45, Maddy nearly bounced her way to the front door. And… opened it to find Aiden standing there holding a brown paper bag. Chase stood right behind him, looking remarkably sheepish.
"Coffee, Sis? If I'm getting up this early on a Saturday, there'd better be coffee." Why was Aiden irritated with her? It's not like she'd invited him. Aiden grouchily brushed past and headed for the kitchen.
Maddy stopped Chase in the doorway and quietly teased, "Call for reinforcements?"
