First Comes Love
A Willamette Valley RomanceeBook - 2018
A single mom and attorney with deep roots in the rolling hills of Oregon's Ribbon Ridge wine country thinks her family is perfect as is—until she crosses paths again with a gruff police officer who has two boys of his own. There is nothing sweeter than the family you pick yourself. After detective Alex Walker's last case in Portland is skewered by a tough-as-nails attorney, he decides to finish out his career on a quiet note in the Willamette Valley. Dedicated to his job and committed to his family, he's fine letting his brusque exterior keep even the thought of a relationship at bay—especially once he realizes his new hometown is the old hometown of the attorney who ruined his last case. Single mom and family attorney Kerry O'Hearn is just as wary as Alex is, thanks to her disastrous first marriage. But she isn't fooled by Alex's tough-guy image. When he asks for her assistance in gaining custody of two little boys from an abusive foster home, she sees what he desperately tries to hide: a giant-sized heart. Between them they have five kids and a whole barrel of bad experience. And yet, Kerry can't shake the feeling that she and the crusty cop were meant to be.
