Synopsis: It’s forbidden love at first sight in the third novel of the reader-favorite Moorehouse Legacy series from J.R. Ward, writing as Jessica Bird. Originally published as From the First in 2006.
It’s bad enough that Alex Moorehouse has always yearned for his best friend’s wife, Cassandra Cutler. When a boating accident makes her a widow, the grief—and the guilt—threaten to sink him. But his self-imposed reclusiveness is about to be destroyed by the arrival of the last person in the world he ever wants to lay eyes on again. As Alex and Cassandra reluctantly work together to rebuild his family’s bed-and-breakfast, and his anguished heart in the process, will their growing bond be strong enough to survive both of their secrets?
Don’t miss the rest of The Moorehouse Legacy series!
