Left at the altar, Police Chief Ryder Grant vowed he’d never get mixed up with a woman again and threw himself into his work instead. But when a shady lawyer shows up causing trouble, the mayor insists Ryder take time off until the dust settles.
The day Kinley James left her hometown of Sunset Ridge, Alaska, she never intended to return.
Coming back nine years later is all the letter’s fault—the one from her deceased mother that promises someone in town knows the identity of her father.
Her plans to lay low are quickly derailed when a near-miss with a moose causes her to swerve off the road and crash into the town’s welcome sign. Just her luck that the person to find her is not only the first boy she ever kissed, but he’s also now the police chief.
With idle time on his hands, Ryder keeps crossing paths with Kinley. The girl he gave his first kiss to is now all grown up. The soon to be Army pilot doesn’t plan to stay, but it doesn’t stop him from wondering if her return is a second chance to see where that first kiss might’ve led all those years ago.
