April and Hale Abercrombie’s love is tender and sweet. While he serves in Vietnam, their marriage is marked by trust and the belief that they will grow old together with a gaggle of grandchildren at their feet. But, their charmed marriage changes in the face of losing their newborn daughter.
On leave from his tour, Hale can barely wait to hold his wife and her help her heal. When he arrives, his embrace, his touch, and his love are as perfect as April remembered. Their reunion is passionate and their physical connection is strong and soothing. But, April’s heartache remains.
Hale stumbles through his attempts to prove to April that their future will be rich and full of wonder. His good-hearted, but take-charge approach causes her to retreat. Even in grief, April can see Hale’s earnestness, yet she finds solace in putting space between them. They must learn trust that real love will endure even in the face of all that has gone wrong.
Set on the beaches of the Outer Banks, Return to Love is the second book in the Endless Love series. Book one, Home Again, was named a finalist in the 2014 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

April and Hale's love is a sweet love. When he goes to Nam, he believes their marriage is solid with trust and love.  That they will grow old together and have a lot of grandchildren.  That dream was a beautiful thing until they had to face the possibility of losing their new born daughter.  While on leave, Hale can hardly wait to hold and help his wife through this sorrowful time.  Him holding her and talking to her was everything she remembered.The passion was still there, strong as every.  One thing was missing,  her heart was broken in pieces.Hale tries to convince her that things will be OK, he tries to sooth her grief but it only seems to put them further apart.  They both must learn to trust their love, that that love will be there even during the terrible times and will help you face the grief straight on.
