Maddie Burns is back in town. Happy to be teaching in the high school she’d attended, settling back into small-town life feels familiar and safe. The fact that her ex was still there wasn’t even on her radar.
Cowboy Josh Duncan is thrilled his high school sweetheart is back in Rocky Ridge. The distance had been too much when she’d left town for college. Now that she’s back home, he naively believes they can be friends again.
When they bump into each other in town, their reactions couldn’t be more different. He has no clue she’s still angry. She can’t believe he doesn’t understand how deeply he’d hurt her ten years ago.
As he realizes the depth of his mistake, Maddie is having no part of the blissful reunion he’s trying to engineer. Josh showers her with big, gestures—generic as they are—to get her attention.
It’s only when he takes the time to truly get to know who she is now that he gets it. He can’t buy his way back into her life. The perfect gift is what will prove to her that she’s the love of his life.
Will consistency, sincerity, and forgiveness rebuild what they once had? Is it possible to fall in love again as the adults are today?

I love Romance. The magic of attraction. The physical draw that just cannot be denied. All the possibilities.
I also love the various types of Drama that often come hand in hand with Romance… well, at least in the books that I review here.
Right now, I’m putting together the “magic” that will be showcasing Romance novel reviews in a wide variety of romance genres. Contemporary Romance, Historical Romance, Rom-Com, Modern Western Romance, Western Historical Romance… well, the list is actually endless, but this gives you an idea of what is to come.
I hope you’ll return in a few days when Happily Ever After Romance is up and running.
