Bluegrass Reunion: They thought the men they loved were out of their lives. They were wrong.

Although each romance in the Bluegrass Reunion series stands alone, all books are about second chances and are set in Kentucky. In keeping with the Bluegrass theme, when appropriate, a few horses are thrown into the plot for good measure.
