If this is your first Braden book, Treat Braden and Maxine “Max” Armstrong have a very special place in my heart. Their love story is the beginning of my beloved Braden series, and introduces you to some of my favorite characters, and to a family that has become so real to me, they’re always by my side.
If you are a fan of the Love in Bloom big-family romance collection, you may have read Treat and Max’s original story, Lovers at Heart. One of the greatest things about being a writer is the ability to reimagine worlds and create new stories. For the past several years, I have had the nagging feeling that there was more to Treat and Max’s story than I had originally thought. I wanted to give Treat and Max a more mature story without losing the essence of who they are. This is Treat and Max’s story, reimagined, and I hope you adore it as much as I do.
In LOVERS AT HEART, REIMAGINED…
Handsome, wealthy resort owner Treat Braden is used to getting what he wants. When Max Armstrong walked into his life six weeks earlier, he saw right through the efficient and capable facade she wore like a shield, to the sweet, sensual woman who lay beneath. She sparked an unfamiliar desire in him for more than a one-night stand, leaving his heart reeling and his blood boiling. But one mistake caused her to turn away, and now, after six weeks of longing for the one woman he cannot have, he’s going home to try to forget her all together.
Max Armstrong has a successful career, a comfortable lifestyle, and she’s never needed a man to help her find her way—until Treat Braden caught her attention at a wedding in Nassau, causing a surge of emotions too big to deny. After spending one magnificent evening together, something happens that is too reminiscent of the painful past she’d spent years trying to forget. Max will do anything to avoid reliving that pain—including forgoing her toe-curling, heart-pounding desire for Treat.
When a chance encounter turns into a night of intense passion and honesty, Treat will do everything within his power to win Max’s heart forever—and Max is forced to face her hurtful past head on for the man she cannot help but love.
