In an all-new trilogy set in blissful Edilean, Virginia, Jude Deveraux weaves together the tales of three young women, best friends since college, and the lives, loves, and dreams that await them. Sparks are flying between Jecca Layton and Dr. Tristan Aldredge. At the urging of her dear friend Kim, Jecca put the ruthless New York City art world on hold to spend the summer pursuing her passion for painting while enjoying Edilean's tightly knit artistic community. For years, Kim's cousin Tristhe town's handsome and dedicated doctorfelt a deep connection to Kim's college sister Jecca, though they had met only once before; now, Jecca is swept off her feet by this strong, sensitive man in a summer of sensual delights. But when long shadows announce Jecca's return to real life and the big city, the lovers must decide: Can they survive the distance? And who will sacrifice the life they've created for themselves to be together?
Readers will blaze through Deveraux's latest contemporary romance set in Edilean, Va. (after Aug. 2011's Heartwishes). Jecca Layton was raised in New Jersey, but now she's a committed New Yorker who manages an art gallery and hopes her own paintings will find an audience. When the gallery closes for the summer, she travels to Edilean to spend time with her friend Kim and possibly reconnect with Kim's older brother, Reede, whom she met as a teenager. While she doesn't remember also meeting Dr. Tristan Aldredge, he remembers her, and he's determined to get her attention. Borrowing from the Cupid and Psyche myth, Deveraux delivers a modern romance addressing relatable relationship obstacles such as the challenges of distance and the need to balance career aspirations. Tristan and Jecca's chemistry jumps off the page and effective backstory adds depth and realism to their encounters. (Jan.)
