Book One: Kiss Me That Way - A Cottonbloom Novel
A river divides Cottonbloom in two: the upscale enclave on the Mississippi side and the rundown, rough and tumble side in Louisiana. They’re worlds apart—but nothing can build a bridge like love…
Cade Fournette never had it easy Cottonbloom. He stuck around long enough to raise his orphaned siblings and then hightailed it out West—and never looked back. Even though he’s made a success of himself in Seattle, Cade never lost the toughness and the angry edge that helped him survive down South. His only weak spot: the girl he left behind…
Monroe Kirby came from the wealthy side of town, but that didn’t protect her from her mother’s drinking—or her mother’s boyfriend. It was Cade who did that, on a long-ago hot September night, before he disappeared…along with a piece of her heart. Now Monroe is a physical therapist who can fight for herself, and it’s Cade who could use some conditioning when he makes an unexpected return back home. Will he and Monroe pick up where they left off and finally explore their mutual passion—or will the scars and secrets of the past divide them once more?

What people are saying...
"At the heart of this wrong-side-of-town story are deftly drawn characters who understand that everyone has fears. Trentham layers the weight of family responsibilities throughout the well-paced story. The towns' competing festivals and quirky characters add humor and link the other romances in the series." Publisher's Weekly
"An engrossing novel of first loves and second chances...she manages to make each scene feel original, and keep her characters' journey compelling to the very end. Most impressive is the way she consistently refuses to make her heroine a damsel in distress, giving her the strength and self-assurance to deal with every surprise that arises, and to guide her strong but scarred hero into their very own happy ending." 4 stars RT Book Reviews
"The residents of Cottonbloom will steal your heart! You'll never want to leave!" 5 stars Red's Romance Reviews
