Author(s): 

Hero Travis has depth beneath his undoubted charm, and heroine Sarah is sympathetic through most of the book. But her endless self-doubt taxes the reader's nerves eventually and her sudden realization that she's in love with Travis just doesn't ring true.

Finally divorced from a hyper-critical and emotionally abusive man, Sarah Price is starting over with her two children in Serenity, her small hometown. Working part-time as a waitress, Sarah meets sweet-talking Travis McDonald, a former professional baseball player who's also deciding what to do with the rest of his life -- which turns out to be opening his own radio station in town and giving Sarah her own show. Travis is a flirt, a self-confessed player and great balm for Sarah's still-bruised self-confidence, but she can't take him seriously. Sarah makes Travis want things he's never even thought of before -- a home and a family -- but he's not a forever kind of man, and they both know it. (MIRA, May, 400 pp., $7.99)
