When Mitchell van Leuven captures Esme Garland’s heart, life seems truly glorious. Before she has a chance to tell Mitchell about her pregnancy, however, he ends their relationship. He eventually recants his criticism, and his passion and promises are hard to resist. But if Esme gives him a second chance, will she, like the struggling bookstore at which she works, lose more than she can handle?
