Can first love turn into the real deal in a sizzling new Fool’s Gold story from New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery? Isabel Carlisle thinks she’s cursed in the romance department. Her teenage crush, Ford Hendrix, ignored all her letters. Her husband left her for another…man. So Isabel has come home to dust off her passion for fashion and run the family bridal shop until her parents are ready to sell it. Then she’ll pursue her real dreams. At least, that’s the plan, until sexy, charming Ford returns and leaves her feeling fourteen all over again….

Seeing Isabel all grown up hits bodyguard trainer Ford like a sucker punch. Back when heartbreak made him join the military, her sweet letters kept him sane. Now he can’t take his eyes-or his lips-off her. The man who gave up on love has a reason to stay in Fool’s Gold forever-if three little words can convince Isabel to do the same….



This was a two for one romance for me because we got to see two brothers finding their happily ever after and I really enjoyed watching those Hendrix boys with their matches.

I was hoping for a full book and to learn more of Kent story and his past, but we got so little of him in this story. I wanted more. His kid is a great teenager and after the big scape in the previous book he seams to be doing okay now.

But Ford was the leading character and I liked watching him and he was trying really hard. It’s not simple to live in Fool’s Gold without everyone knowing your secrets, but he was managing just fine, the only problem was his mother deciding to find a woman for him. Really?

But I liked the way he kept a very simple relationship with Isabel and he even remembers her, from before he enlisted. He was engaged to her sister, but we can clearly see they are better off separate and both are happier now.

Isabel is such a nice girl and she has a broken heart too, so spending this time in her family home is already stressful, but Ford actually helped her. These two are so cute together.
