Life has not always been easy for Lucy, but she has found fulfillment in her work as a glass artist and happiness with her live-in boyfriend Kevin. But Lucy’s world shatters when she discovers that her boyfriend and sister have been having an affair. Kicked out of her home and nursing a broken heart, Lucy has nothing left except her work and her friends.
Sam Nolan takes pleasure from few things in life, mainly his vineyard, the occasional beautiful woman, and helping to raise his young niece. His life is full and uncomplicated and most importantly unattached to any particular woman. On the whole Sam is quite content until Kevin steps in and turns it upside down.
Neither Sam nor Lucy is looking for an attachment. Lucy no longer trusts her own judgment and Sam is married to his vineyards. But when the two are thrown together by Kevin’s manipulation and an accident, neither can deny their intense attraction to one another. Although Lucy and Sam are slow to trust, they begin to explore the world of possibilities they create when they are together.
In a lesser author’s hands, Rainshadow Road would fall apart as too sweet and too charming, but Kleypas deftly weaves magic, romance, and reality to create a wonderfully rich contemporary romance. If you enjoy the magical stories of Sarah Addison Allen mixed with the depth of women’s fiction and the romance of the very best love stories, then Rainshadow Road is the perfect introduction to Kleypas’s contemporary romances.
