Is there anything more compelling than a shattered hero with a tender heart trying desperately to get his life back together — and to avoid falling for the woman who has given him grief since he was a teenager? Ramsay’s latest visit to Last Chance, S.C., is a first-class romance, with compelling characters and a real sense of location — the town is practically a character on its own. This entry is sure to keep Ramsay’s fan base growing.

Savannah White leaps at the opportunity to go back to Last Chance. The town reminds her of summers with her grandparents and better times, before her contentious divorce, before her son started to become a brat and before she made the first of too many mistakes. Everything will be great — if she can keep from killing Dash Randall. Former pro baseball player Dash remembers Savannah as a “princess” who made his life hell when they were younger. Looking for his own last chance at salvation, Dash is first annoyed, then intrigued, when the gorgeous grown-up Savannah returns with her troubled child. Before they know it, the two are striking sparks that could set fire to their future. (FOREVER, Apr., 384 pp., $7.99)
