Back Cover Copy
After college, Ryan Kowalski decided to leave Whitford, Maine, rather than watch Lauren Carpenter marry another man. Now his siblings need his help to refurbish the family-owned Northern Star Lodge and he’s forced to face the past sooner rather than later when he collars a vandal—and learns the boy is Lauren’s son…
The last person Lauren needs back in her life is Ryan Kowalski. With a bitter ex-husband and a moody teenage son, she has enough man trouble already. But her son needs to learn a few lessons about right and wrong, even if Lauren has to escort him to Ryan’s door every day to work off his crime.
With all this close contact, Ryan and Lauren can’t deny the chemistry between them is as powerful as ever. But can a few searing kisses erase their past and pave the way for a second chance at true love?
More than fifteen years ago, Ryan Kowalski laid his heart on the line when he asked Lauren, his best friend’s girl, to run away with him. Lauren didn’t feel that way about him and Ryan left town alone. Throughout the years, Lauren often thought about what would have happened if she’d said yes. Now he is back in town and the grown-up reality of Ryan far exceeds her daydreams.
I love Ryan. It’s as simple as that. His courage to go after love again, his desire to make life easier for those he cares about, all of it makes him a totally sigh-worthy hero. Sean Kowalski (Yours To Keep) and his sticky notes still hold a special place in my heart but Ryan has edged him out as my favorite Kowalski.
If you love working-class heroes and second chance at love romances, you don’t want to miss All He Ever Desired!
He wasn’t sure he could walk that far. Not that it mattered. He’d crawl on his hands and knees to get to her if he had to.
