“Unbreakable is everything you expect from a Melanie Harlow novel: emotional, sexy and a love that’s worth risking it all for. I could not get enough of Henry and Sylvia’s story!”
— Corinne Michaels, New York Times bestselling author
Unbreakable, an all new “do not miss” sexy and emotional second chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is available now!
This is what it’s supposed to feel like. This is what I’ve been missing. This is what I want.
Was there any possible way I could have it for keeps?
It feels so good to be returning to Cloverleigh Farms once more! I’m going to be so sad when this series is actually over, which I fear is soon because every new book feels like a visit with family and I just enjoy it so much. This time we see the eldest Sawyer daughter finally return home to Cloverleigh with her two children after her marriage fell apart. It wasn’t until the last book that we really discovered that Sylvia’s life was not the picture-perfect life that it seemed and I was very much looking forward to learning more about her in this book. After her husband cheated on her and left her for a much younger woman, Sylvia’s heart is battered and she isn’t sure she’ll ever be able to trust another man. But the kind and handsome winemaker at her family’s winery, Henry DeSantis, has her realizing that there are still good men out there. Henry’s own heart is pretty battered after his recent divorce but there’s something about Sylvia Sawyer that’s got him feeling hopeful for the future for the first time in quite a while. Their connection is undeniable but is their timing all wrong or will these two broken hearts find a way to heal one another?
This is the 4th Cloverleigh Farms book and it really gave my favorite one (Irresistible) a run for its money! I’m torn over which one takes my top spot, but there’s no doubt that Sylvia and Henry secured a special place in my heart. Their story was full of such hope and healing and I really think that these two were perfectly suited for one another. They were so sweet together and I loved seeing them both come alive again as they explored their feelings for each other. Of course, their burgeoning relationship was much more complicated than just two people falling in love. They had their baggage from past relationships as well as taking into consideration the feelings of Sylvia’s children, who had already been through so much upheaval in their young lives. The angst will definitely pull at your heartstrings but I loved how everything played out. It all felt so authentic and necessary. Be prepared to swoon over Henry! He was a real delight in this story. He’s made appearances in past books but we never really got to know him until now and he does not disappoint! This book had everything I’ve come to love about this series and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a sweet, down-to-earth, heartwarming love story about learning to love again!

In hindsight, I should not have had that fifth mimosa at Breakfast with Santa.
Or the sixth, seventh, and eighth.
But my shame over the public meltdown that resulted was nothing compared to being abandoned by my husband of fifteen years for a much younger woman—and did I mention she’s pregnant?
For the sake of my children and my pride, I pack up and head for my childhood home and the small town where I grew up. Cloverleigh Farms would be the perfect place for a fresh start.
Falling for Henry DeSantis wasn’t part of the plan.
Sure, he’s easy on the eyes and hard in the bedroom (also the hallway, the bathtub, and on top of his desk), but he’s newly divorced too, and things between us are moving so fast I’m afraid neither one of us has had enough time to heal. Not to mention the fact that I’m a single mom now—my kids have to come first.
But Henry makes me feel beautiful and sexy and wanted and strong—things I haven’t felt in years. We understand each other, and when I’m in his arms, I’m tempted to trust again. To love again. To let myself be loved without fear.
But deep down, I’m terrified.
Is this all too much, too soon? Or am I a fool to let a second chance at happily ever after pass me by?

“Want to unzip my dress?”
“That would be a hell yes.” He took my hand and pulled me to my feet. “Turn around.”
I turned, lifting my hair off my neck. Slowly, he pulled the zipper down my back, and the red dress fell to my feet. Stepping out of it, I suddenly felt self-conscious. I hadn’t been fully naked in front of a man without the cover of darkness in a long time. I hadn’t been fully naked in front of anyone but my ex since I was twenty—and I didn’t have that body anymore. I’d had two children. Even though I knew it was stupid, that nagging little prickle of insecurity still stung . . . I’d been left for a younger woman. He’d told her I didn’t excite him anymore. Was my body to blame? Before I could stop myself, I covered my chest with my arms, wrapping one fist inside the other and tucking them beneath my chin.
“Hey.” Henry turned me by the shoulder so I was facing him again. “Don’t do that.”
“What?” I had trouble looking him in the eye.
He tipped my chin up. “Don’t hide yourself from me.”
“I’m not hiding,” I said, but of course I was.
Taking me by the wrists, he forced my arms down to my sides, and looked at me.
I started to panic a little.
I was totally bare before him—stretch marks, C-section scar, less-than-perky breasts and all. Unlike many of my friends, I’d never had surgery to restore my post-baby body to its former tight, bouncy, unmarked state. Now I was kind of wishing I had.
I’d never felt so naked or vulnerable in my life.
“Sylvia, I’m going to say this once,” Henry said seriously. “And then, since you’ve learned not to trust words entirely, I’m going to spend the rest of the night showing you that it’s true—I think you are the most exquisite woman on the face of the earth, in every way. There is no part of your body, no inch of your skin, that isn’t perfect, because it’s yours.” He took my head in his hands and kissed me, hard but sweet. “And all I want to do is make you mine, even if it’s just for tonight.”
“Yes,” I whispered. I rose up on my toes, pressing my lips to his again while my hands went to work unbuttoning his shirt. “Make me yours tonight, Henry. That’s all I want to be.”
