The love of a lifetime, lost but never forgotten…

If he could turn back time, Declan would do things differently. For one, he would've never let go of Iris Blue McLain, the only woman he's ever loved. Fifteen long and lonely years, and the ache in his heart is as painful as ever. 

When he sees her for the first time since they parted, she's every bit as pretty as she was years ago. No, she's even prettier. From across the crowded room, she steals his breath. Same silken, flame-colored hair. Same summer-blue eyes and almost the same smile, only now, there's a hint of sadness. 

But when he asks her to dance, she wastes no time giving him the brush off. 

She'll protect her heart, no matter the cost…

The years haven't been kind to Iris. It all started when Declan broke up with her, leaving her heart shattered. After her car wreck, things went from bad to worse. Now, to top it all off, Declan strolls back into her life, acting like he's got a right to be there. She can't risk a second heartbreak. But some things never change, like the way his eyes remind her of his slow seduction, or his work-roughened hands that promise a gentle caress.  

For a moment, the years melt away and Iris wonders if she and Declan might have a second chance. But time can't heal all wounds, and for two broken people, the secrets of the past threaten to break them once again.

Returning for Love is the fourth novel in the Long Valley world, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. It has some strong language, and oh my, sexy times. Enjoy!


  • Ugh

    Turned off this book by how often the word “stupid” was used.

    Story dealt with real life issues. But I didn’t like the story. Started out alright, but just skipped over the rest of book.
  • Get out the Kleenex ...

    Returning for Love is a second chance love story with so much heart. I have a love/hate relationship with this storyline. True love should not be put on hold due to misconceptions and stubbornness. But it sure does make for a moving read. Declan has been the sweetheart of the Miller boys in previous books and this book brings this out even more. Iris is so type A she is needs someone like Declan who is so even keel. This easy to read tale is funny and sad and very thought provoking.

    I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Declan and Iris never stopped loving each other. Declan is best man at his brother Wyatt’s wedding. Iris is at the Miller wedding with her parents. A well written second chance Romance that will pull at your heartstrings. Erin Wright is a fantastic author and I love th Long Valley series.

    I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. This book is what happens when you have no self worth and think you are unworthy of love. I laughed and cried. You may even believe in love & your own self worth again. Can't wait for Erin's next book to come out
  • Sweetly Sexy Small Town Second Chance!

    By Cali Jewel
    Sweet, funny, quirky, emotionally engaging and easily relate-able small town second chance romance. Highly entertaining reading that kept me reading all night long. Declan is sweet, charming and the sexy peacemaking middle son. He has a deep secret he only ever told one person and now that person is gone. Iris is smart, sexy and a sassy independent woman back home to recover after a car accident impairs her natural balance. She is also the only woman Declan ever truly loved. Such a sweetly charming romantic journey, love visiting Long Valley and look forward to my next visit.
  • HS Sweethearts/Second Chance At Love

    By Keryth68
    I am voluntarily reviewing an advanced reader copy of this book, Returning For Love By Erin Wright. My love of Erin’s work grows with each book of hers I read. Her writing style is exceptional! I love getting immersed in her books, with her funny, entertaining, sweet, lovable, crazy characters. They are very real and relatable with everyday issues and situations. Erin’s Long Valley Series is one of my favorites!! Declan has loved Iris since HS. Breaking up and being apart for years has not changed that. Seeing Iris at his brother’s wedding is a complete shock to Declan, but he sees it as a second chance to be with the love of his life. Will Iris see it the same way? Does she still love Declan? Is love enough or will their secrets keep them apart?

    Sweetness! This woman knows how to write. She can pull all kinds of emotions out of you and leave you begging for more. Iris and Declan is the sweetest second chance love I've read in a while well maybe since her last book.
  • An amazing read!

    By Barbk1202
    I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. This book is a great addition to the Long Valley series! Declan Miller is much more vulnerable than he seems. Iris MacLaine is the perfect match for him. Their shared history fuels the fire of their new romance . It's a very enjoyable read. I can't wait for the next one!
