Passion won’t hold them together when past fears threaten to tear them apart…
She’s drawn by his wild spirit.
Bree Findlow’s ordered world slides into chaos when the man who broke her heart arrives back in their small New Zealand home-town. But with years of avoidance tactics under her belt, she figures ignoring the sexy-as-sin artist whose touch colors her red hot, is a practical solution. Until her mother arrives with an announcement jeopardizing Bree’s livelihood, and her sister also shows up…along with the nine-year-old secret Bree has kept hidden from everyone. Especially the father of that secret.
He’s drawn by her quiet strength.
Maori oil artist Harley Komeke is back in Oban to rest, regroup and hopefully re-find his missing muse. He also isn’t against rediscovering every inch of the icy-cool treat, Bree Findlow—after falling under her spell in what felt like a lifetime ago at Art College. His pursuit takes an unexpected turn when, hello, insta-fatherhood. Reeling from shock, Harley knows he should despise the woman who allowed her sister to informally adopt their son, but he can’t. Because Bree, more than anyone, understands that with his past, he never, ever wanted to risk having a wife and family.
They’re drawn to each other over and over.
Like the formidable tides that surge around Stewart Island, Bree and Harley can’t resist the heat generated between them. Push and pull, kiss and retreat, touch after breathless touch—until a moment’s recklessness has consequences neither can brush aside.

"Just as the must-read series of Donna Kauffman (The Bachelors of Blueberry Cove), Jill Shalvis (Lucky Harbor), Terri Osburn (Anchor Island), Marie Force (The McCarthys of Gansett Island), Sherryl Woods (Chesapeake Shores) have entranced me with their seaside settings and caring communities - so has Tracey Alvarez - and I'm adding her series to my must-read shelf too."~ Fab Fantasy Fiction

Not disappointed at all!
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
Holy cow! This new book does not disappoint! As a matter of fact, none of her books disappoint!! Be prepared to go on a Bree and Harley emotional roller coaster ride! There were a plenty of OMG and all the feels moments. I can understand from both Bree and Harley and why their skeletons were in the closet for so long and why they think it was best to be apart. This book tugged me back and forth between the two main characters. It felt like the emotions and the chemistry were raw and so real. The best part about the whole Due South series is that everyone on Stewart Island is a close knit family and how they're willing to back each other up without any hesitation and no questions asked.
Drawing me in
I love to read Tracey's books they take me to a very very far off land. A land I hope to visit someday. She gives you New Zealand .
This story is by far her best yet!!! It is wonderfully written. It's honest,heart wrenching,funny and so romantic . To take the theme " what a mother would do for the love of her child" intertwined with " what a parent could do to damage the heart and soul of a child" created the perfect story. It's not a new story, but when told by Tracey with the how's and whys of human emotion it brings tears to my eyes. There are so many subplots interwoven and they create the whole to real life. We all want ..... And they lived happily ever after. Well, this story is so so much more,she hit this one out of the park! In closing , I feel what gives this story its magic is just that.... The magic of the human heart.
This book is part of a series but it most certainly can be read as first book. Highly recommend this book. Enjoy it. Savor it. Ps. The second time is even better. Happy reading Lisa from Dartmouth mass.
A different twist must-read
"I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own."
I have mixed emotions about this book as it was just that... very emotional and angsty.
I rated this book 5 stars as I believe that if it was that the author wrote the book to be an emotional rollercoaster then she absolutely succeeded.
There was no need to be overly descriptive of the area/scenic spots, as we have visited Stewart Island in previous books 1-6 and, while we can truly appreciate the scenic trail and mud romp the main characters Bree and Harley had, the main focus is on them and their overcoming so many obstacles and emotional hurdles it left me somewhat exhausted but in a good way as we get our HEA.
There is just so many elements and situations in this one.
We have trust issues (both sides) and commitment issues, unrequited love and abandonment, and facing an unexpected pregnancy years later that had a young Bree having to "whāngai" the baby to her sister and brother-in-law, while feeling abandoned by an emotionally challenged Harley ... But to be fair she never told him about the pregnancy.
We have Harley coming to terms with his mother's death and abuse as children of himself and twin Ford before they were rescued by their uncle and aunt, who raised them from the age of 5. We were introduced to this element in the previous book, Ford and Holly's story, but we get a bit more closure as Harley is included and they meet up with the father who abandoned them.
The pace is different to the other stories as this one is more of a back and forth, a tug of war between the characters and emotions as they are constantly drawn to each other and boy o boy, do they make some pretty big fireworks when they clash. Hot steamy zingy ka-powy my o my!!!!
We also get a glimpse into some of the other characters on their going stories and ... Wait... I just realized that Mrs T, although mentioned a few times, didn't have much in this one, but I'm sure her nose is twitching and we must see her again in her full regalia and gossiping best.
So my dear reader mates, for the continued journey into the lives of our Stewart Island family, one that explores the heart and emotional limits of healing and growth and most importantly realization and maturity, you must read this one, as I find it brings such a different perspective to the dynamics of this group of friends and we get to enjoy it all.
To my dear friends of Due South I can't wait to visit with you guys again!!
