From Golden Heart Finalist Alyson McLayne comes a new contemporary romance series following the boys of Saint Ignatius, who are all grown up and still fighting it out on the soccer field-and finding love in Sizzling, Sexy Santa Barbara. The clock is ticking for Sarika Dkany. After Sarika's childhood-friend-turned-lover walks out the door, she's determined to have everything Rafe wouldn't give her: a husband, a home, and children-even if it means forcing her broken heart to love someone else. Now her godmother's ill, and Rafe has returned to bring Sarika back to Santa Barbara-and back into his life. Except Sarika says she's over him. The clock is ticking for Rafael Fabrizio. For all of Rafe's trappings of success, he's a man wounded by his broken childhood and afraid to claim the only woman he's ever loved-until he discovers she plans to marry someone else. Facing a lifetime without her, Rafe vows to overcome his past and convince her he's capable of being the man she needs. But will Sarika trust him again with her heart? And is she willing to forgive the past and move into their new future?
