A hot fling offers them both a chance to escape their pasts…
Four friends. Four seasons. Four ways to fall in love.
Book 4: Persuading Spring
Bridget Hitchcock – Birdie to her friends – is getting married to the man of her dreams. Or so she keeps telling herself. When Fate intervenes to ruin the big day, Bridget’s devastated, but she’s honest enough to admit that the humiliation and embarrassment has upset her more than actually losing Mal. Standing on Wellington quay in the rain in her wedding dress, she contemplates where to go from here, and has no idea.
Aaron Reed is dashing through the rain with his son to their hotel room when he spots the beautiful bride who looks as if she’s about to jump into the water. With a struggling veterinary business miles away in the Northland, a seven-year-old who’s having a sneezing fit, and a crazy ex-wife who’d insist the boy had pneumonia if it meant scoring a point against Aaron, the last thing he needs is to complicate his life even more, but when Bridget looks into his eyes, he’s lost and has to help.
All her life, Bridget’s been one of the good girls. She’s reliable, trustworthy, and sensible, and she’s always done the Right Thing. But for the first time, she acts on impulse and takes up the offer of a man she’s just met to go away for a week to a tiny island where there’s nothing to do except eat ice cream and snuggle up to the cute guy who can’t seem to leave her alone.
Maybe life’s not so bad after all. But it’s difficult to move forward when old habits are holding you back. Will their hot fling be enough to help them escape the chains of their past?
