Renowned romance author London woos readers with this passionate first installment in her Lake Haven contemporary series. Budding artist Mia Lassiter is dismayed when she gets laid off from her job in Brooklyn and is forced to go back to her hometown of East Beach, a summer tourism town somewhere in the Northeast U.S. While working for her aunt’s remodeling company, which is renovating a nearby mansion, Mia meets Brennan Yates, a musician who is the son of the property’s owner. After she and Brennan spend some more time together, she realizes that he is one of the few people that actually understands her artistic nature and is genuinely interested in her. But Brennan has a secret: he’s famous rock star Everett Alden, on a hiatus from his madcap life. He has no idea how to tell Mia without destroying their tenuous relationship. Mia and Brennan are very complex characters who have been shaped by tragic events in their pasts that make them reluctant to trust. London’s ability to create sensuous, romantic, and believable love scenes adds to the allure of this heart-wrenching novel. Agent: Jenny Bent, Bent Agency. (Apr.)
