Recent architecture school graduate Alix Madsen takes a year to live on Nantucket, Mass., where she plans to recover from a bad breakup, study for her exams, and prepare a portfolio. While she loves the island, her head truly gets turned when she realizes that she’ll be living in close proximity to famed architect Jared Montgomery. Super-sexy Jared has no interest in serving as anyone’s mentor, but he’s drawn to Alix’s talent and beauty. As their relationship builds, Jared concedes that he knows more about Alix’s ties to Nantucket than she herself understands. As family and friends gather for Alix’s best friend’s upcoming wedding, old souls may be reuniting in modern bodies, putting a reincarnation twist on the contemporary beach read. Deveraux (Moonlight Masquerade) masterfully brings together two kindred spirits, giving readers lots of reasons to look forward to the next installments in the planned Nantucket Brides trilogy. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (July)
