It seemed like a good idea at the time.

The trouble is, when you run from your problems, you often find out your biggest obstacle is along for the trip–it's you! Reid Carrington realizes that when he finds Jennifer and recognizes the quiet desperation in her eyes. Can he save someone who doesn't want to be saved? Or like a lifeguard rescuing a swimmer, will she pull him down into the undertow in the end?

Recipes for Jennifer's Mango Salsa and Tilly's Bruschetta included.

Purchase from Amazon.

Here's An Excerpt:

His smile grew slowly and he reached for her again. “Jenny, Jenny, how could I ever have doubted you? I think maybe you’re an angel sent to comfort us all.”

“Not an angel,” she said, tears in her eyes. “Just me. Just Jenny. Just the one who loves you most of all.”

He kissed her sweetly and held her tight. “Can we make a go of it, Jenny?” he asked her softly.

She nodded. “I think we can,” she told him.

He laughed. “See, this is what I want to talk to you about. All along, we’ve looked at this as an either/or choice. You were at one end of the spectrum, living wild and free, while I was at the other, immersed in upper-middle-class society.”

She nodded slowly. That had seemed to be the range they had to choose from.

He smiled at her. “But it occurred to me as I was thinking about it over the last few weeks that I don’t really want either one of those life-styles. And I don’t think you do either.”

She went very still. “What exactly do you mean?”

“Oh Jenny, Jenny,” he said lovingly. “We don’t need the wild parties, the dangerous stunts, the crazy characters, and we don’t need the hoity-toity country club scene. We’ve both tried those things. Maybe we’re finally ready for reality. Something a little more down to earth.”

“Such as?” She thought she knew where he was headed, and a grin began to grow on her pretty face.

“Such as—think of this: a woman and a man, a little house, a fireplace with a roaring fire, a dog, the patter of little feet.”

She leaned close and kissed his earlobe. “Little dog feet?” she teased.

“No.” He turned his head and caught her lips for a quick kiss. “Little human feet. The kind that come attached to a head full of curls and a wide milk mustache.”

His warmth crept through her, nurturing her soul. She’d never felt so toasty and loved before.

  Helen Conrad is an award-winning, bestselling author of more than 90 romances (over 15 million copies sold) published under various pseudonyms with Harlequin, Silhouette, Loveswept, and others.

Destiny Bay Romances-The Sweet Editions
These are basically the same stories that are found in Destiny Bay Romances- Forever Yours, but with the conflicts softened a bit, the language cleaned up, and no explicit love scenes. There are still a few adult situations, but they're muted. Consider these the PG versions.
