Kate McAdams was forced six years ago to leave her beloved hometown of Willow Valley, leaving behind her family and the only man she’s ever loved, Marc Caliendo. Although she has created a new life for herself away from the drama, secrets and stress of the small town, she must return upon her grandmother’s death. Her return brings back wonderful memories, especially of Marc, but also horrible fears from the past.

When fate throws her and Marc together once again, how can they ignore the everlasting love and desire between them? Will Kate stay and face her demons or will the deceit and secrets of the past destroy any future they may have and force her to leave again

Kate’s Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream
This is an easy recipe for those late nights when Kate is craving ice cream. Instead of making his way to one of the resort kitchens, Marc can whip this together in his suite...enough for just the two of them.
Ingredients:
-1/2 cup half-and-half or milk (half-and-half creamier)
-1 tablespoon sugar
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
-2 quart size zip-loc bag
-1 gallon zip-loc freezer bag
-3 1/2 cups crushed ice
-1/3 cup salt
Directions:
1. Mix together the first three ingredients in one of the quart size bags, making sure to seal tightly leaving as little air as possible inside the bag. To reduce the risk of the bag breaking, place this bag into the other quart bag and seal again tightly leaving as little air as possible inside.  
2. Place the doubled-up bags inside the gallon bag. Fill the bag with ice and then sprinkle the salt on top. Again, let the air escape the bag and seal.
3. Put on your gloves or wrap the bag with a towel, shake and massage the bag for 5-8 minutes to freeze the ice cream.

  14. I think you are just kidding yourself if you think secrets wont destroy something. Whether it be your POV, your own emotions, or even your ability to trust, WHEN the secret presents its ugly head, love will be and can be damaged. Sorry, speaking from experience :(

  15. Sometimes, when the secret comes out, it's too big to get over and the love can't last. But sometimes it's not an important secret (at least to anyone other than the person keeping it) and love goes on.

  16. I do believe love can survive past secrets if both people are committed to the relationship and are honest with each other.
