A long-harbored secret threatens to tear them apart
Leo Moncrieff is celebrating the multi-billion-dollar sale of his Silicon Valley company when he receives word that his estranged father has passed. Now, ten years after he escaped the sleepy harbor town of Fortuny Bay, Leo must return to settle his family’s affairs.
He expects to get in, sell the house, and get back to his real life… but Leo uncovers more secrets than he bargained for lingering in his dilapidated ancestral home: Namely, his ex who, unbeknownst to Leo, has been an in-home nurse for his father these past few years.
Widowed mother Cat Alonzo has nothing and no one beyond her five-year-old son and a room in the Moncrieff home. Her late husband’s sudden death gave her a reputation in town that she can’t seem to shake, and when his family opens a lawsuit for custody of her son, she finds herself stuck in Fortuny Bay by court order – just in time for Leo to come back to town and tear her apart all over again.
While Leo is still the same witty, charming guy who stole her heart all those years ago, their reunion is overshadowed by swirling rumors, hazy secrets, and the wagging tongues of a small town. As much as Cat wants to hate him, she can’t, and for Leo, even dire warnings from the neighbors can’t stop his flame from burning for the beautiful woman he left behind.
Their hesitant truce and budding second chance romance is shattered when his father’s attorney invites them both to the reading of the will, and the biggest secret of all is revealed —a betrayal that neither Cat nor Leo can possibly forgive.
If you love the small town romance of Susan Mallery and the suspenseful twists of Nicolas Sparks, pick up FORTUNY BAY today to discover just how deep the roots of love and betrayal can go.
