His idea of permanence is the VW van that takes him from one gig to the next . . . Owen Lawry has made a living as a traveling musician and enjoys his footloose and fancy free lifestyle. But since meeting Laura McCarthy and helping her land a job at his grandparents' hotel on Gansett Island, Owen has decided there's something to be said for a roof over his head-and a warm, sexy woman in his bed. Laura, a newlywed who discovered that her husband never quit dating, came to Gansett for her cousin's wedding. She didn't plan to stay-until she met Owen, and took on the renovations at the dilapidated Sand & Surf Hotel. Owen and Laura's attraction simmers over the coming months-but as they take baby steps toward love, their growing bond is tested when Laura's estranged husband refuses to grant her a divorce. As summer turns to autumn, will they find a way to keep the fire burning in their hearts, even as a chill fills the air? . . . Praise for Marie Force and her novels   "You'll want to stay on Gansett Island too!" -USAToday.com   "Force excels at creating characters readers can identify with and care about."   -Booklist
