When Mina Winslow buys her ancestral home with plans to restore it to the beautiful sanctuary it once was, she discovers more than she bargained for. Soon, she’s reunited with a man from her past. The one man she never stopped longing for.
Renowned archaeologist, Noah Nolan, swore he’d never return to the small, remote island in Lake Michigan. After agreeing to complete a short-term excavation project, he realizes the site belongs to the woman who inexplicably rejected him years before. A woman he’s never forgotten – or forgiven.
Now Noah’s affinity for uncovering all things lost, forgotten, and buried stirs Mina’s repressed memories of a terrifying secret and she must find the courage to unearth the past, or risk losing the treasure of her heart forever.
Author’s Note: BEAUTIFUL RUIN is the first in a series of connected books about the five Nolan brothers, but may be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.
This book contains storylines that touch on the topics of sexual assault and abuse which may be triggering to survivors.
