Welcome to Fortune’s Island, where the only rule is to follow your heart.
Love is an extravagance Darcy Williams can’t afford. She prefers the simple life, which includes waitressing at The Love Shack on Fortune’s Island and avoiding temptation. But when a forbidden part of her past steps off the ferry, her safe, guarded existence is turned upside down.
Kincaid Foster has never gotten over his first love. When he sees the wild, beautiful blonde again, dancing her way around The Love Shack, the memories of Darcy’s soft skin, gentle touch, and heated kisses come rushing back. As the privileged son of a wealthy family, Kincaid was too young to stand up to his overbearing father when he and Darcy were together. Now, he’s back on the island—free of the family shackles—and the chiseled, big-time lawyer wants a second chance.
But, Darcy made a promise to keep a secret from Kincaid—a secret that is now a six-year-old girl who looks just like her daddy. If Kincaid finds out about their daughter, Darcy could lose everything. But, she can’t resist the man who stole her heart all those years ago. And it doesn’t take long before both of them realize that anything can happen at The Love Shack on a hot summer night.
And Then Forever is available for purchase:
So this was a fairly warm and fuzzy type of story. There's a child and a love that never faded with time. Darcy, despite how protective she comes off as, fairly quickly let down her guard when Kincaid started coming around. I think I would have liked to see her stand up to this guy a little more considering how quickly and easily he left the first time around. That being said, we are faced with Kincaid's undying love for Darcy from the getgo. His devotion to her is almost too much--he really held her up on a very high pedestal! And The Forever zipped through scene after scene a lot quicker than I would have liked. I felt that it was a lot of story but not too much in detail. The final conflict also resolved much too quickly/easily for my liking. Even still, though, it was an enjoyable read, albeit it being lighter than I usually like my romance!
