Heart’s Harbor is the first I have read from Kate Watson and won’t be the last. I loved that the author included Alex’s children in this enchanting tale. The children are definitely the basis of this beautiful relationship for without them there wouldn’t have been a way for these two to meet. The love between them is special and highly recommended. Great job Kate.
