A young woman in the equestrian fashion business finds herself head over heels for none other than her ex-husband in Colette Auclair’s steamy sequel to her 2012 Golden Heart finalist and “page-turning debut” (Library Journal), Thrown.
Thoroughly enjoying herself at a friend Amanda’s wedding, Beth finds herself in an unexpected state of shock when she realizes she’s been seated next to her ex-husband, Finn, at the reception. Determined to not let this fluster her, Beth strikes up a conversation only to learn Finn isn’t the same man she walked away from.
Relieved the reception is over, Beth is looking forward to a relaxing weekend against the beautiful backdrop of sunny Aspen at her best friend Amanda's estate. Little does she know Finn will be partaking in the weekend activities too. But just as Beth decides to keep as much distance between her and Finn as possible, Finn has a terrible accident and Beth is stuck being his bedside nurse.
Over the course of the weekend, Beth and Finn discover that the wounds of their failed marriage are not all that’s left. There are sparks…and hope. But just as they decide to give their relationship another try, Finn confesses a huge secret that could destroy everything he’s fought to get back—Beth, their relationship, and another chance at love.
Will Beth turn away, or will she take a leap of faith and say “I do” once (again) and for all?
When Beth Fanelli arrives at a friend's wedding reception to find her ex-husband, Finn McNabb, sitting at her table, she tries to act like a mature adult and treat him with polite indifference. Unfortunately for her, a weekend of wedding-related activities is extended indefinitely when Finn breaks his leg and is invited to recuperate at the newlyweds' house, where Beth is also staying. On the one hand, Beth and Finn's time together leads them to remember every reason they split, from divided priorities to aggravating quirks. But they also begin to remember those things that they first saw in one another, and their romantic feelings slowly reawaken. The story portrays two convincingly flawed but likeable characters who find each other's faults both provocative and exciting, as they try to decide whether a second chance at marriage is worth the risk. This is a perfect light summer read for contemporary romance fans.
