The best journeys take us home….
When Tessa Alexander came to Sanctuary Island, she left behind a marriage to a man who didn’t love her the way she loved him. When she finally found the strength to set them both free, she discovered friendship and self-acceptance in her adopted hometown. Now she’s settled into a quiet life on her own—never expecting to see her husband again.
Johnny spent almost two years deep undercover, unable to let his wife into his cold, dangerous world. He’s shaken to the core when he comes home to find her gone. It’s painfully clear that Tessa is no longer the timid young woman he married—she’s become a force of nature, a brave and determined beauty. Johnny can’t let her go without a fight so he sets out to seduce his own wife. But will passion alone be enough to convince Tessa that her new life should include a second chance at happiness with a man who must learn to believe in love?

This isn't a bad book, so please don't misunderstand the 3 stars. I felt so left out, confused. I get that this is book 5 in a series, but if a reader randomly picks it up, you don't want them to feel as if they are lost. They book should make them want to know more about the characters they are meeting. I didn't get this. I liked Tessa, and really liked Johnny. It was a sweet romantic story. If there had been more 'new' readers taken into consideration, characters reintroduced instead of just assuming someone knows them, then I feel that this could have easily been a 4 or 5 star read for me. I would suggest you start at book 1, if you want to enjoy this series.
