And Then Forever
A second chance romance for two very different people from different “sides of the track” is the backbone of this story. The first I have read from this author, this was a god introduction and a fun start to a series.
Darcy is the girl from the wrong side of the tracks, she’s always struggled to find her own place in the world, learning early that her family is never going to be as supportive as she would have hoped. When she first met Kincaid years ago, she made the difficult decision to send him off to his life without looking back, their paths were too different. But an unexpected pregnancy left her with more than she had planned for. To her credit, Darcy was a wonderful character: determined, self-reliant and able to move forward confidently, even though she doesn’t always feel it.
Kincaid returned to Fortune Island after a six year absence, his last vacation there brought him Darcy, but he left for school and his own life. It took a bit for me to like Kincaid: he’s very supportive of his sister, but his willingness to let others get into his head and their renewing relationship. COMMUNICATION people – one of the most frustrating things about watching a romance develop is the lack of communication when asking a question is so simple (yet so scary in reality).
Slowly this romance rekindled as Kincaid actually started to pay attention to his own feelings and the connection that he and Darcy shared, and the insets with their daughter were clever and sweet. With plenty of moments from secondary characters that added to the story, this relationship has a happy for now, with plenty of questions that I hope will be answered in the next book.

Welcome to Fortune’s Island, where the only rule is to follow your heart.
Love is an extravagance Darcy Williams can’t afford. She prefers the simple life, which includes waitressing at The Love Shack and avoiding temptation. But when a forbidden part of her past steps off the ferry, her safe, guarded existence is turned upside down.
Kincaid Foster has never gotten over his first love. When he sees the wild, beautiful blonde again, dancing her way around The Love Shack, the memories of Darcy’s soft skin, gentle touch, and heated kisses come rushing back. As the privileged son of a wealthy family, Kincaid was too young to stand up to his overbearing father when he and Darcy were together. Now, he’s back on the island—free of the family shackles—and the chiseled, big-time lawyer wants a second chance.
But, Darcy made a promise to keep a secret from Kincaid—a secret that is now a six-year-old girl who looks just like her daddy. If Kincaid finds out about their daughter, Darcy could lose everything. But, she can’t resist the man who stole her heart all those years ago. And it doesn’t take long before both of them realize that anything can happen on a hot summer night.
