A kiss to last a lifetime

Aiden Gallagher was only five years old when he appeared in a photograph on the Kissing Bridge. The town of Darling, Vermont, has used Aiden’s image on the famed bridge—local legend has it that a kiss there results in everlasting love—as part of its tourism campaign. Now, twenty years later, Aiden is asked to recreate the moment with the woman he once kissed: Laurel Stone.

Recently divorced, there’s nothing Laurel wants less than to pretend happily-ever-after with Aiden. As teenagers, their romance was no fairy tale—and Laurel has never quite forgiven Aiden for breaking her heart. But now that she is back in her hometown, and keeps bumping into police officer Aiden, Laurel can’t deny that there’s still a strong flicker between her and her old flame. Could it be that the Kissing Bridge is working its magic on Laurel and Aiden—and that all true love ever needed was a second chance?


  1. I don’t think I have read any books by this author yet. Somebody Like You sounds like it will be a sweet romance story. Thank you for the chance!

  2. I’ve read a couple of her books and I enjoyed them. Sounds good. Thanks for the post and the giveaway.

  3. Donna Alward is one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. She deals with one or two important contemporary issues in each of her books, showing how they impact the characters’ lives and relationships. The characters and the settings are well drawn and “real.” They are easy to relate to and draw you into the story. I just finished SUMMER ON LOVER’S ISLAND, in her Jewel Cove series. I look forward to visiting Darling, VT and the people she will populate it with.


  5. I would love to get introduced to this author and book!
