Violet Smith and Zach Aubrey have history…
…the kind of history he regrets and she wishes she could forget.
When a booking mistake at Deep Haven Cottage strands them together at a rental house on the Maine coast, the rocker and the writer are suddenly thrown back together after ten years apart. While Violet will do almost anything to prevent history from repeating itself, Zach wants to show her that her heart will be safe with him this time. But can Violet give him a second chance? And will Zach truly be able to change history?
Playing songs, playing for keeps…Playing for Love at Deep Haven
Violet took a deep, shaky breath, lowering their hands to her lap. “What about the rest? The other eleven?” Tattoos were, unimaginably, the safest topic of the moment.
“Huh. Um. Well, the one on the back of my neck is the last three bars of Clair de Lune.” They stopped at a stop sign and Zach leaned forward, pushing his hair up with his free hand to reveal musical note and the words “Votre âme est un paysage choisi” written underneath.
“Your soul is the chosen landscape,” she whispered, reaching over to run her index finger over the words, wondering how he felt, what he was thinking, as the needles had punctured the taut skin. His next words answered her unspoken question.
“It is,” he murmured, leaning back to catch her eyes. “Your soul…is my chosen landscape.”
KATY REGNERY, winner of the 2013 NECRWA First Kiss and 2013 Maine RWA Everything But the Kitchen Sink contests, has always loved telling a good story and credits her mother with making funny, heartwarming tales come alive throughout her childhood. A lifelong devotee of all romance writing from Edwardian to present-day, it was just a matter of time before Katy tried her hand at writing a love story of her own.
As it turned out, one love story turned into a series of five Heart of Montana romances, following the love lives of the Yellowstone-based Lindstrom siblings. In addition to small-town contemporary romance, Katy is presently writing a paranormal romance that takes place in northern New England and the forests north of Quebec.
Speaking of forests, Katy lives in the relative-wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut where her writing room looks out at the woods and her husband, two young children and two dogs create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories of all are the messy and unexpected ones.
