Dan never wanted a tenant for the rundown cottage near his isolated home in wild and wonderful Cornwall. So how come he finds himself living next door to a beautiful young woman who stirs feelings in him he thought he’d buried years ago...

Rowena simply wants somewhere safe for herself and her young son to start a new life. Her handsome new neighbor can be as aloof as he wants – she doesn’t need anyone’s help, and she has no intention of allowing a man to hurt her again. Ever.

But as spring turns into summer, Rowena finds herself drawn to her self-contained but completely gorgeous landlord. Can she and little Jamie melt the ice around Dan’s wounded heart, or will the past always haunt two people almost too afraid to love again?

Sometimes all is takes to find love is a new beginning.  Even when that fresh start DOESN'T involve finding love.

Rowena has had her share of hurts.  But it's time to get away from the past and create better for herself and her child.  Though she is fiercely scared and independent, there is a part of her, even if it's just a small part that yearns for her neighbor.

Dan has his own problems, and despite Rowena's chill, he's drawn to her.  Every push makes him push harder, and both have a long way before they give into temptation and let their walls down.

Claire Dalton weaves a beautiful story about starting over, new chances, and that long lasting love everyone looks for.  The author has created characters that are likable and a plot that pulls the reader into the story.  If you're a fan of contemporaries, then don't miss New Beginnings
