It took just one teasing wink and a sexy Irish lilt from bad boy Lorcan Byrne to turn Julie Denison’s world upside down. The problem is, he’s only in town for six months, and happily ever after isn’t in this world traveler’s vocabulary.

Julie’s worked hard to get her life in a good place – dropping substantial weight and getting a great job at her friend’s bakery. But this handsome charmer is just as tempting as any of the decadent pastries she sells, and she can’t resist his advances for long. Julie fully expects Lorcan to break her heart—but she’s planning to enjoy every second she can of their explosive chemistry.

After years of danger as a soldier and a spy, Lorcan fled to tiny Rockland, Maryland for some boring downtime. He didn’t count on meeting someone who could ignite his libido and soothe his damaged heart, and their passion soon leads to deeper feelings. But can Julie convince Lorcan he has more to offer her than just his wicked Celtic kiss?

The coming together of this damaged hero and heroine may heal their hearts.

A very well written story. This is the second book in this series which can totally be read as a standalone. The story was written in keeping in mind the characters. They shined throughout.

The beginning was great and from then on I was happily anticipating what would happen and how their relationship would develop. Every chapter and page from the beginning increased the anticipation with the well written and descriptive words and the burning passion and chemistry between the lead characters.

What I loved about this book was that Ms. Gerrard wrote and framed all the characters in a way that even the minor secondary characters felt special and enhanced the whole story. The multiple points-of-view not only gave me an idea what the characters were feeling and thinking but made me understand the plot a lot deeper.

However, the ending was a little disappointing for me. Not throw the book disappointing, just not what I expected. What I anticipated and what happened were very far apart in a good and a bad way. In a good way because what happened was surprising and I like surprises. The ending was simple, I was looking for more drama and action, nonetheless, it was satisfying.

This is a read for those who love contemporary romance with damaged heroes that will likely touch your heart.
