Can a plus-size teacher with a daughter and a dangerous secret and an ex-cowboy player with wanderlust build a future together?
Genevieve loves her daughter, books, and sweets, in that order—mostly. Since men just see her as a friend, she gave up on romantic relationships. Besides, nobody outside her family can know her secret. Especially not her new friend and tentative crush, Declan O’Neill, who leaves foreign countries and gorgeous women behind him easier than she can set aside a good book and a cup of cocoa.
Declan is attracted to the kind teacher, but she keeps him further away than he long ago stowed his cowboy boots and saddle. Although the mystery surrounding her also piques his investigative mind, a secret of his own makes him avoid commitments.
When her life is in peril, will this unlikely pair discover a chance at survival—and love?
The sweet memories of our relationship haunt me more than any fire I’ve ever fought.
Because she can’t remember any of it.
I thought my world was falling apart when Monica was in the car accident. Waiting desperately with her family in the hospital, I couldn’t let anyone see just how much I cared.
Our secret relationship meant my hidden torture as I waited for her to wake up. But when she finally did, the truth, was so much worse.
Thankfully, she’s healing perfectly fine–except she can’t remember the last six months.
Which means she still thinks we merely tolerate each other for her brother’s sake and are more inclined toward animosity than attraction.
She doesn’t remember our first kiss.
Or our first date.
Or our promises of forever.
No one else in town knew we were together, especially her brother–my best friend. And when I tried to tell her, she doesn’t even trust me enough to believe it.
But I’ll do everything I can to make her remember. And if that doesn’t work, I’ll just have to make her fall in love with me all over again. Even if it was nearly impossible the first time. I’ll be The One She Can’t Forget.

When Henri Tupuola returned to Suamalie to open his holistic mental health clinic, he had no idea what he was getting into.
