A Reason to Love

Alexis Morgan. Signet Eclipse, $7.99 mass market (336p) ISBN 978-0-451-41773-2
In Morgan’s third Snowberry Creek contemporary (after More Than a Touch), a soldier’s homecoming is less than welcoming. Spencer Lang went missing in Afghanistan and was presumed dead. When he returns to Snowberry Creek, he’s devastated to learn that his fellow soldier Nick is marrying Spence’s best friend, Callie. Melanie Wolfe rescues Spence from a night of self-destruction and offers him a place to stay and temporary employment as she struggles to keep her family business afloat. Though Melanie knows that Spence will likely leave town after reconciling with his military buddies, she can’t resist her attraction to her former high school crush and his wounded soul. Melanie’s shy, yet confident personality is the perfect match for Spence’s tough and tortured nature, and the sweet, sensual romance between Melanie and Spence is refreshing and believable without graphic eroticism. Readers will fall in love with the characters and their idyllic town in the Cascade Mountains. (May)
