At six feet tall, Marty has made a name for herself as a model. Now she's leaving her career—and her cheating boyfriend, Rob—behind in New York and heading home to Millbrook, Maine.

One of the first people she sees is Nate Peck, a town bad boy who emotionally hurt Marty and insulted her. He's now a cop who is attracted to her, and he doesn't understand her abhorrence of him.

An attack some months earlier that left him close to death also affected his memory, and he doesn't remember the things he did to her in the past. Nate's brush with death has profoundly changed him and he desperately wants to convince Marty of this. But as much as he wants to get together with her, there are those who want to keep them apart.

This final installment in the Stepp Sisters trilogy is just as entertaining as the first two. Marty's striving to find her place in life, and Nate's struggle to come to terms with the new him and convince others that the changes are real make for an absorbing story. (Jul., 352 pp., $5.99)
