Wyatt Hansen has no fears about commitment, but only three years have
passed since his beloved wife died, and he can't bring himself to break
their annual dinner date-that is until he meets restaurant owner, Lara

Can Wyatt rescue Lara's restaurant, help her overcome her fears, and
prove he is good husband material?
Jordan Ambrose is looking for passion. From her husband. And,
as Randy Ambrose will tell you-she's great at pushing his buttons.
The problem? He's hiding out from intense emotions, like passion.
So their love life is lackluster. Well, except for those letters.
Jordan discovered a box of love letters in her husband's home
office closet. Why doesn't he act like the "R" from the letters, so
clearly written to "J"? If she can drag him away from his writing
desk, they can talk about it. But will Randy stop hiding and love

"First class romance! As a lover of romance, nothing is more romantic to me than a love story
between two people married to each other. And in her tender and touching novella Love
