Twenty years ago, Kevin Sunman’s life changed forever when the woman he believed was his soulmate walked out of his life and disappeared. He spent copious amounts of time and money on detectives who came up short, leaving him lonely and frustrated. Determined to forget her, Kevin saddle up his custom motorcycle and hit the road searching for closure.

After many days and hundreds of miles on the road, Kevin checks himself into the River Jewel Resort for a much needed break. Coming face-to-face with his past and the woman who has haunted his every waking moment for two decades wasn’t what he expected. And what he learned about his mystery woman is far more than he ever bargained for.

Scarlet Noir, owner of the River Jewel Resort, has lived a life full of mystery. Bringing soulmates together and helping them find their true happiness has become the mask she’s worn to hide her own loneliness and secrets. When the man she walked away from twenty years ago shows up at her resort, she’s forced to remove the disguise and confront all that she left behind.

Will their time apart prove to be too much to overcome? Or can the River Jewel Resort heal old wounds and heartaches, allowing them a second chance to claim their true love?

Two wounded souls looking for redemption.

I love the work of Madison Sevier and I long awaited this book. Scarlet is a fascinating character and talk about a few holy cow moments! I also love stories of second chances. This book is no exception.

Kevin is a great hero. He’s the kind of guy I want to read about. Strong and solid, but when he loves, he doesn’t quit. Then there’s Scarlet. She’s quite the woman. I love how she describes herself as a walking catastrophe. How many women see themselves the same way? I related to her and rooted for her.

There are moments that will bring a tear to the eye and others that singe the screen. I’m glad. The breadth of emotion in this story made it a wonderful read. I needed to know what would happen for Kevin and Scarlet and I wasn’t disappointed. If you want heat and heart, then this is the book for you.
