Her simple friendship helps pull him out of grief. But he doesn’t know she’s a movie star—and she knows he can’t expose his family to the spotlight of fame.Single father and widower Ryan Howard has zero interest in the movie being filmed in Pine Harbour or the high maintenance stars staying in the cottages at the end of his lane. He's just barely holding on to the raw remains of his life and the fantasy world being concocted around him is, as far as he's concerned, a complete waste of time and energy. The one bright light in his life is an intern on the set, and their quiet conversations at the end of the day on his back porch.
Hope Creswell hates her life, too, which is entirely unfair because she’s blessed beyond measure. She’s at the top of her acting career, a Hollywood A-list star, and surrounded by people that mean well. But Ryan makes her laugh, and cry, and before she can explain her double life, he kisses her.
Book #3 in the acclaimed Pine Harbour series by NYT and USA Today bestselling author Zoe York.

A classic holiday meet cute, except one of them is naked...for art! And therefore off-limits.
Navy SEAL Ben Simmons' return from an overseas tour hasn't gone exactly to plan. He surprises even himself by agreeing to be a model in a life-drawing art class, because the alternative is a lonely, boring holiday break.
For high school teacher Chelsea Doyle, who is spending Christmas alone for the first time in her life, the art class she's signed up for should be a highlight. She isn't prepared for the off-limits model to be drop-dead gorgeous, or to discover the next day that he's her brand-new next door neighbor.
Too bad she's signed a waiver to treat him with nothing but professional distance. No kissing, flirting, or anything else his sexy smile suggests.
Owen Kincaid knows how hard it is to have a kid when you’re still a kid yourself, and eighteen years after the fact, the paramedic watching his daughter go through the same thing. The last thing she needs is him falling for the new woman in town—her midwife.
Kerry Humphrey finds her new client’s father...unsettling. He's tall and brooding and always there, hovering in the background of appointments. And then there's the crackle of off-limits chemistry every time they’re alone. She hates that, too, but Pine Harbour is a tiny place, and avoiding the young grandfather-to-be in a town of six hundred people and a single Main Street proves impossible.
Everything about their attraction is ill-fated. But it won't go away.

Are they one late-night hayride away from tumbling back into a very bad idea?
Olivia Minelli needs a one-way ticket out of Pine Harbour. It's too small for both her and her ex-husband. So when a new job falls into her lap, she grabs it with both hands. When this contract is complete, she'll have enough money saved up to leave town for good. Which means settling some unresolved business with the only man she's ever truly loved, once and for all.
Rafe Minelli knows he won’t get a second chance at what he once had with his ex-wife. The demands of his double career—as a police officer and military reservist—were a dealbreaker when they were together. And he’s thrilled for her new opportunity. But with it comes a ticking clock that forces both of them to address the smouldering embers of a connection that just won't go away.
They aren’t the same young kids who rushed into marriage the first time. But as summer slides into fall, Rafe sets out to prove he’s a changed man before he loses her forever. One hayride at a time.
Zander Minelli is exactly the wrong kind of man. He’s dark, dangerous, and knows far too much about sawed-off shotguns.
Faith Davidson finds him irresistible. The widowed single mother knows she should dip her toe back in the dating pool with someone solid and dependable. Definitely no tattoos. But every time she looks up, the brooding soldier is watching her, and she can’t help but wonder what it would be like to let herself have a taste…
Small town summer nights have never been hotter—and one transplanted city-girl’s heart has never been more fragile.

For twenty years, Seth Kincaid has kept his visits to his home town brief. He’s not avoiding January Hill, exactly—he’s giving his high school girlfriend space. But that distance evaporates when she takes over her family’s marina for the summer. Which means every time he flies his floatplane into the harbour, she’s there, and the temptation to fall into her sunny smile and forget about the past is stronger than ever. He can’t resist lending a hand, though. Not when she needs the help.
January has a lot on her plate. She’s temporarily raising her niece and nephew while her sister is overseas, and running the family business, too. The last thing she needs is the dangerous risk of pretending a fling with Seth could be simple. Except the grown man version of the boy she once dated is…perfectly easy. He helps with the kids, no questions asked, and then once they’re asleep, satisfies her in ways her eighteen-year-old self couldn’t have imagined.
But two decades of distance is a shadow layered on top of complicated, long ago memories.
Whatever this temporary magic spell they are under, it can only be for the summer. Any chance of something else between evaporated the day Seth joined the Air Force—and broke her teenage heart.
For the first time ever in print, Zoe York breaks down how she plans a series—something she has done ten times over.

Captain Sean Foster came back from war broken from the inside out. And he doesn't care about being fixed. Not even by a woman who followed him halfway around the world due to some misguided loyalty.
Jenna Kowalczyk had two weeks with a man who stole her heart. They promised each other forever, but one brutal explosion proved that promise to be paper-thin.
She should leave him in the past. That's what he wants her to do. But from the second the determined midwife shows up in Pine Harbour, she knows she's staying--no matter how much heartache is in store for her.
Adam Kincaid wants to be known as his own person: not the easiest thing to do as the youngest of five brothers in a small town where everyone knows exactly who his family is. Unexpectedly getting hitched to his former army captain wasn’t quite what he had in mind, though.
Isla Peterson knows exactly what she’s gotten herself into with the younger Kincaid: a marriage of convenience. In return, she gets a bakery of her own, and the company of a friend who has as little faith in love as she does.
But as their public charade starts to feel surprisingly real behind closed doors, Isla’s ex-husband shows up, asking all the wrong questions. If the truth of their relationship comes out, the safety they’ve found could come crashing down.
Welcome back to Pine Harbour, in this sexy small town romance about two friends who don’t believe in love, but do believe in each other.
Tasha doesn’t realize who Matt is related to until he gives her his number at the end of a perfect day. Turning down his request for a second date—with both her and her daughter—is the hardest thing she’s ever done. But her history with his brother, and her firm commitment to living a drama-free life for her daughter, means she can’t flirt with, sleep with, or dream about Jake Foster’s younger brother.
Not even if he makes her daughter laugh.
Not even if he seeks her out again and shows her just how interested he is in every part of her life. Because there’s no such thing as a truly secret affair—and Tasha’s done with being anyone’s guilty pleasure.
Tom Minelli doesn't know why Chloe Davis has fled Pine Harbour, but she's pregnant with his baby and he wants her back. Not just back in town. He wants Chloe back in his life, and not as the casual hook-up friends they were before. But finding her proves harder than he expected—and when he does track her down, a snow storm rolls in right behind him, trapping them together in a cabin on the lake.
