Genre: Adult contemporary romance, inspirational romance
Married for more than twenty years, and with her children out of the nest, Ali Timberlake has come to Eternity Springs alone. She’s looking for answers to heartbreaking questions and searching for something that’s missing deep within herself. Taking a lease on the Bristlecone Café in pursuit of a lifelong dream, Ali feels revitalized as she becomes part of this charming mountain town. But a big piece of her is still back in Denver with her husband, Mac, a successful judge—and a man who isn’t going to let the woman he loves leave without a fight.
When Mac shows up in Eternity Springs—sexy, seductive, and determined to win his wife back—he experiences the wonder of the place that has given Ali such feelings of happiness and belonging. He wants that for her, but even more, he wants that with her. Ali has found a special place for her heart. But is there still enough room left in that heart for him?
“Very funny, Timberlake. This is the first time I’ve worn this shirt and I’ve spilled wine on it. It’s probably ruined.”
“Take it off and rinse it in the creek before the stain sets.” When she paused and looked worriedly around, he added, “No one will see you but the steer, and not only is it impossible for him to tattle on you, he doesn’t have the equipment needed to take advantage of the situation. I, on the other hand…” He waggled his eyebrows wolfishly.
Ali frowned at him.
The amusement in his eyes transformed to heat. “Take off your shirt, Ali-cat.”
A ribbon of heat fluttered through her. “I guess I do need to soak the stain.”
“You certainly do.”
After glancing around the meadow one more time, she reached down to pull the shirt up and off, then hesitated. “If I do, will you give me your shirt to wear on the way back to town?”
“I certainly will.”
He sucked in an audible breath when she revealed the sexy red bra. When she knelt beside the creek and leaned over to rinse the shirt, he shifted to get a better view. Ali tended to the shirt, honestly fretful over the stain.
When she’d done her best with the shirt, she stretched it out to dry atop the boulder where she’d fished. When she turned around, Mac sat stretched out on their blanket, propped up on his elbows. He said, “I want to make love to you, Ali. Here. Now.”
