About Return To Me:
All she wants is to move on as quickly as possible—if only the universe agreed.
Custom pastry chef Evie Powell’s life is in disarray. Not only is she trying to divorce her husband, but her lawyer has a heart attack and her case is turned over to the firm’s senior partner, a man Evie knew intimately in her past. A man she hasn’t seen in over twelve years and who she wants nothing to do with. So why does he still leave her breathless?
Attorney Vincent Scott is a man of humble beginnings who has now made a name for himself running one of D.C.’s most prestigious law firms. When he’s handed a divorce case for the woman who left him back when he was a lowly car mechanic, he wants to refuse. Yet even now, Vincent is still drawn to Evie and will do anything to protect her.
But when a life-altering secret is discovered, can Vincent tell Evie something that would destroy everything?

“Good evening, Evie.”
The deep, rich rumble of his voice was like warm fingers caressing along the nape of her neck. Her entire body suddenly tingled. She grabbed her glass and sucked down every drop.
“Given what happened today with Patrick, I thought I’d check on you. Are you home?”
“I’m in bed. How about you? Are you in bed, Vinny?” She slapped a hand over her mouth. Why did I say that? And why the hell am I talking all low and husky?
“Vinny?” He cleared his throat on a soft chuckle. “It’s been a long time since I’ve heard that.”
“I-I mean, Vincent.” Shit. He hated the nickname, but she used to call him that in private when…when their hands and mouths touched and tasted, groped and licked.
“Yes, I’m in bed getting work done before I turn in. I wanted to send you some info I pulled together.”
“What is it?”
“I call it my war sheet—notes I typically write down on the attorney I’m going up against. In this instance, it’s a few bullet points on Patrick’s legal counsel—his strengths, weaknesses, case history, his wins and losses. The guy plays dirty. He’ll take everything he can get for his client down to the floorboards.”
“Oh. Okay.” She didn’t know what to say. The act was so like him.
“It should be in your inbox now. Anyway, just thought it might help your attorney prepare.”
She quickly pulled up her email and opened the document. A few notes? There were two full pages of information. Even lines about Patrick’s actions today at the bakery. Appreciation and most of all, a strong sense of longing—the emotions washed over her, roiling like turbulent waves. She used to say he had the heart of a tiger and the soul of an angel. “Thank you.”
“Well, I’ll let you go. Have a good night, Evie.”
“You, too. Good night.”
But she wasn’t ready to hang up.
