This was the second novel I ever wrote and the first to get published.
Melody Ross expected little from life–after all, that’s what she’d always gotten. After her miserable childhood and disastrous teen marriage, a cozy apartment and simple job would nicely, thank you. Caution was key.
Then magnificent David Halifax jogged in to view, sporting a flawless combination of brawn, brains and great expectations. His fierce determination to live life to the limit–and prompt Melody to do likewise–planted seedlings of hope in her heart. But then the rains came, eroding her budding confidence. Even with David’s warming love, could she weather the hazards of sweet anticipation?
