The resort and spa that grew out of the hurricane-ravaged Barefoot Bay is now home to the “Barefoot Bay Brides” -- a destination wedding service specializing in dreamy “I do’s” on the beach. The company is run by three women who are gifted in the art of creating a perfect wedding day...but haven’t yet found their own happily ever after. All that’s about to change...
Up first, destination wedding consultant Willow Ambrose has fought a battle with the scale for much of her life, but she has finally won the war. By putting her past behind her and cutting off all contact with anyone who knew her before and, of course, controlling everything she can, Willow has carved out a new body and a new life. But when she comes face to face with someone who left an indelible mark on her heart years before, all that threatens to crumble.
Navy SEAL Nick Hershey is on medical leave, doing a friend a favor as a stand in “man of honor” at a beach wedding. He might not be that interested in the nuptials, but the wedding planner catches his eye the minute they meet. When he realizes Willow is really a girl he knew in college -- and a girl he unintentionally hurt to the core -- he knows he has some making up to do.
Willow has learned how to beat every temptation...but Nick’s sweet as candy kisses just might be the one thing she can’t resist. But the closer they get, the more the past threatens to tear them apart. Can they overcome their history in order to have a forever future?
