Darly Jamison is a Watty Award winning writer of Contemporary Romance. Her dream of becoming an author began before she could read, when she repeatedly drew the same story until the pages spilled over the bottom drawer of her parents’ antique chest.
As she grew older, her love of the written word continued to flourish and she was ecstatic when she landed her dream job in a library! Unfortunately, her position there was short lived and she was let go for continuously reading on the job.
Darly’s big break came when she entered her first novella into a writing competition. To her surprise, her story won and she was awarded a publishing contract through Kensington Publishing.
When she’s not busy devising her next story plot, she can be found hanging out with her family in Northwest Ohio, or trying to cure her insatiable sweet tooth.
How do you know if a first love is made to last?
Addison Monroe was eighteen when she fell for Jake Grady, a college student working on her family’s farm for the summer. With his sapphire eyes and killer smile, Jake could have had any girl in Lakeside, Georgia. But he wanted Addy, and for those brief, wonderful months—before circumstances drove them irrevocably apart—they belonged to each other.
Ten years later, Addy is engaged to a doctor and working in Atlanta as a physician’s assistant. Life feels full and satisfying. Yet memories of that long-ago summer and wine-flavored kisses are hard to shake. On a return visit to Lakeside, Addy crosses paths with Jake again, and soon finds herself at an unexpected crossroads. So much has changed, and Addy has chosen another route. And the magic of first love can never be rekindled...can it?
