Last First Kiss

Stella Holt. Tule, $3.99 e-book (258p) ISBN 978-1-958686-86-7

Holt packs an emotional punch in her debut romance and Legacy of the Maguires series launch. Widow Charlotte Maguire James must prove she’s worthy of a promotion that would relocate her from small-town Virginia to New York City by working on an important project with her PR firm’s new VP, Caleb Kincaid—whom Charlotte just so happens to have had a fling with before she married. The project takes Charlotte to Vancouver, where she reunites with Caleb and dormant feelings arise. Caleb has always kicked himself for missing his chance with Charlotte and is eager to start anew, but Charlotte is resistant to love as she struggles with survivor’s guilt. With both her love life and her professional life in flux, Charlotte has some big choices in front of her. Meanwhile, Caleb must decide if he’s willing to wait for Charlotte to come around when he faces a health scare that could affect them both. Holt enriches the sexy romance with deep emotions as her characters grapple with grief and illness, and levity comes courtesy of Charlotte’s brothers, who provide welcome comedic relief. The result is sure to charm. (Feb.)
