Lexi is haunted by her past…
One hot summer night, Lexi takes a chance and surrenders to temptation. She’s been interested in mysterious Gabe for a long time and isn’t surprised to discover he understands pleasure well enough to have invented it. But secrets come to light in the morning: Gabe and Lexi have met before—he remembers what she has tried to forget. He doesn’t know about the baby she gave up and she didn’t know about the wife he took to honor his brother’s memory.
Gabe wants Lexi in his future…
Fourteen years ago, Gabe found the woman of his dreams and spent a perfect night with her—only to wake up alone. Meeting Lexi again, as the sister of his new partner, was bittersweet, since she didn’t remember him. Gabe knows that he and Lexi belong together, just as he’s aware that he has to help her heal from a secret wound before they can have a future. Caught between his principles and his love for Lexi, can Gabe find a solution that ends happily for them all?
This story takes place after Some Guys Have All the Luck.
“ONE HOT SUMMER NIGHT is a story of second chances; a rekindling, of a sort, for two people whose lives went in opposite directions eventually finding one another when the time was right. The premise is heart breaking and emotional; the romance is passionate; the characters struggle to move on from the past. Deborah Cooke invites the reader into a spirited yet tender, revealing and sensual tale of family, loss, commitment, and love.” —The Reading Cafe
