He never thought he’d see her again!

After being reported missing, presumed dead, globe-hopping photojournalist Mitch Simmons never thought he’d see his estranged wife, Zoe, again. Yet here he is back in their coastal Florida town, where Zoe is mayor. Turns out she isn’t the only one he left behind.

Discovering he has a baby son awakens thrilling new emotions in Mitch. And there are his still-powerful feelings for the high school sweetheart he vowed to love and honor forever. Thankfully, they’ll have the chance to find the love that was always there…

Finally, an HEA for Zoe!

His One and Only Bride is a second chance romance for two characters who have been apart for two years–in fact, she thought he was dead–and were heading quickly toward another type of separation for several years before that. For much of the novel, they’re still apart–Zoe’s moved back in with her mom, and Mitch is staying with a friend–and for a lot of the time, it doesn’t seem as if an HEA is at all guaranteed. There is a lot of trust to rebuild between the two, and quite a few past hurts to get over. If you’re looking for a book with a lot of shared, romantic moments, this isn’t that book. But if you’re looking for a realistic portrayal of what it could take to get a marriage back on track and create a family? This could just hit the spot.

Though it was frustrating at times to read about the walls these two put up between themselves, both before and during the novel, it did serve to make their ending that much sweeter. A heartwarming side romance between secondary characters and Zoe and Mitch’s absolutely adorable one-year-old son really added to the experience.

Rating: 4 stars / B+
