Cape Cod Promises is the second book from the Love on Rockwell Island Contemporary Romance Series by New York Times & USA bestselling authors Bella Andre & Melissa Foster.
Fall in love on Rockwell Island…Sink your toes into the sandy beaches at the heart of Cape Cod Bay, where family comes first, good friends are around every corner, and true love is waiting beneath the stars.
Trent Rockwell has it all—a thriving legal practice, coownership of the Rockwell Resort, and a big, loving family. And yet his failed marriage to Reese Nicholson has haunted him for ten long years. Now that he has moved back to Cape Cod Bay to help run his family’s resort, he is surrounded by memories of Reese…and he can’t stop longing for the woman he’d always believed was his one true love…
At nineteen, artist Reese Nicholson was swept off her feet by the handsome, charming, and incredibly sensual Trent Rockwell. After a whirlwind courtship, they married and moved to New York City, where they hoped all of their personal and professional dreams would come true. But six months later, Reese returned to Rockwell Island brokenhearted and disillusioned.
For a decade, Trent and Reese carefully kept their distance. But all it takes is one accidental late-night encounter to immediately stir the desires they have both tried to bury deep. Powerless to resist the heat between them, every passionate kiss, loving caress, and heartfelt apology draws them closer together. So close that they can’t help but wonder if the promises they once made to love each other forever are still true…
Eep! We are back at Rockwell Island!
I want to live on that island so much! It sounds dreamy and the Rockwell family sounds amazing! (Well, minus Chandler, but we won’t count him!)
I loved the theme of this one. The lovers who fell in love quickly and young. I am telling you, if I were Trent and Reese’s friend when they got married, I would have told them that it wasn’t going to work as dreamy as they planned. A beautiful island to the fast pace of a city? Not exactly the best match.
A husband who is focusing on climbing the professional ladder of success? Even more disastrous than leaving the island to live in the city. It was over before it started for them, but their love never wavered for one another. I call that true love.
Now that Trent has his head out of his… career and is living back on the island where neither he or Reese can resist each other… You tell me what you would do if your true love were there? I know what I would do! (I also know what Trent and Reese do too!)
Love on Rockwell Island Book 1, Cape Cod Kisses
When Quinn Rockwell left Rockwell Island a decade ago to build a shipping empire, he never thought he’d return to live on Cape Cod Bay—that is, until his grandfather summons Quinn and his four siblings to take over the prestigious Rockwell Resort. Quinn is already working fifteen-hour days, and the last thing he has time for is his grandfather’s demands. But on his first night back, when Quinn finds a gorgeous and carefree woman skinny-dipping in his favorite cove, he’s tempted to ignore his work for a while…and focus on her instead.
As a free spirit who follows her heart and her dreams, Shelley Walters is not the kind of girl to wait around for Mr. Right, so she heads to Rockwell Island for the honeymoon of her dreams—a solo honeymoon. Ready for a week of sun and fun, she never expected to meet a man like Quinn Rockwell.
Wealthy and intensely driven, Quinn is everything Shelley swore she didn’t want. Refreshingly spontaneous and a true romantic, Shelley is everything Quinn never knew he needed. Drawn together despite their differences, during a week of sizzling-hot passion and deep conversations, they fall head over heels for each other. But when their perfect week on the island is over, will their love survive in the real world?
