#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts completes the Inn BoonsBoro trilogy with a novel of starting over and star-crosed love. Ryder is the hardest Montgomery brother to figure out-with a tough-as-nails exterior and possibly nothing too soft underneath. He's surly and unsociable, but when he straps on a tool belt, no woman can resist his sexy swagger. Except, apparently, Hope Beaumont, the innkeeper of his own Inn BoonsBoro… The former manager of a D.C. hotel, Hope is now where she wants to be-except for in her love life. Her only interaction with the opposite sex has been sparring with the infuriating Ryder, who always seems to get under her skin. Still, no one can deny the electricity that crackles between them…a spark that ignited with a New Year's Eve kiss. While the inn is running smoothly, thanks to Hope's experience and unerring instincts, her big-city past is about to make an unwelcome-and embarrassing-appearance. Seeing Hope vulnerable stirs Ryder's emotions and makes him realize that while Hope may not be perfect, she just might be perfect for him… Don't miss the other books in the Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy The Next Always The Last Boyfriend From the Paperback edition.
