As If You Never Left Me. This is a reprint of a book that was originally released by Ellora's Cave. If you didn't read it in its previous incarnation, I hope you'll check it out!
Rey and Joely Birch had what they thought was a perfect marriage.
Then, suddenly, it all fell apart. Joely left Rey in a fit of anger,
moving halfway across the country to make a new life for herself in
Now, fourteen months later, she’s happy with how things
are going, running a classy boutique in the mountains, creating ceramic
art, and seeing her business already in the black. But then one day she
looks up and Rey is standing in the middle of her shop. Sexy as ever and
asking for a second chance. The last thing Joely wants is to let
herself be hurt again. But he’s still Rey, still the man she fell in
love with, still the man who can send her heart racing with a look. And
Joely’s having a very hard time resisting him.
Rey knows he
screwed up the best thing he ever had when he let Joely slip away. Now
he has a chance to prove to her he can be the right man for her again.
He wants time to be her husband again, to show her how he truly feels.
And it looks like she’s going to give it to him. She’s willing to accept
a date—even willing to let him sleep on the couch in her tiny mountain
cabin. Bit by bit, he’ll chip away at the wall she’s built around
herself. A piece at a time, he’ll put his heart back together for her.
But will his carefully laid plans disintegrate when she finds out what really brought him to Colorado?
