Linda Fletcher has moved to Jamesville to get away from her powerful and manipulative family. The friendships she’s forged with people there make it an ideal spot for her to start her new life and her antique’s business—Past Promises.

Levi Mann originally came to Jamesville to help a friend and ended up staying because of Linda. He takes a job doing renovations on Linda’s new building in exchange for free rent. He knows he’s not good enough for her, but that doesn’t stop him from wanting her.

Passion explodes between the two during an argument over her family. Linda has never contemplated a no-strings affair before, but she’s more than willing to have one with Levi. He’s just passing through, but that no longer matters. The chemistry between them is too intense to ignore.

But, the past won’t let her go. Her family threatens her home and business and she faces the cold, hard facts that she could lose everything.

The final confrontation with her family tests the tentative bonds between Linda and Levi. They will both need to let go of the past if their relationship is to have a chance at surviving.

"Now that I have no more new books in this series to read, I can't help hoping that Ms. Walters isn't done with it yet and keeps writing about the good people of Jamesville. If she writes it, I'll read it." --Dina, Goodreads

"Funny how your opinions can change over time. I've read this series a couple of times now, the better books more than once. I found this final in the series to be one of the most engaging. Interesting characters and plot line." --Maria, Goodreads

Funny how your opinions can change over time. I've read this series a couple of times now, the better books more than once. I found this final in the series to be one of the most engaging. Interesting characters and plot line. It wasn't insta love either which can be eye rolling ridiculous, as I fou ...more

I'm glad Ms. Walters "extended" the timeline for the couple in this story. It's irritating to read a couple having known each other for 24 hours having sex, falling "in love" in a week and then married within the span of 2 months! Although the story was short, the brief "history" laid out by the aut ...more

About the author

N.J. Walters

Once upon a time N.J. had the idea that she would like to quit her job at the bookstore, sell everything she owned, leave her hometown, and write romance novels in a place where no one knew her. And she did. Two years later, she went back to the bookstore and her hometown and settled in for another seven years. One day she gave notice at her job on a Friday morning. On Sunday afternoon, she received a tentative acceptance for her first erotic romance novel and life would never be the same. N.J. has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks—all vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.
