First Love Forever romance collection by Erica Vetsch, et al.

A first love is never easily forgotten…and coming face to face with that person again can be awkward when the heartstrings are still holding on to the “what ifs.”

In settings from 1865 to 1910, nine couples are thrown back on the same path by life’s changes and challenges. A neighbor returns from law school. An heiress seeks a quick marriage. A soldier’s homecoming is painful. A family needs help. A prodigal son returns. A rogue aeronaut drops from the sky. A runaway bridegroom comes home. A letter for aid is sent. A doctor needs a nurse. Can love rekindle despite the separation of time and space?

Natalie’s eyes met the doctor’s, and her head spun as if she still had Yellow Fever.


Dr. Phineas Bartholomew Mackenzie.

Her mouth went dry, and her thoughts whirled as she scrambled to organize them. Those beautiful dark eyes…so dark they glittered. Black hair still falling over his forehead. Thin…too thin, she’d always thought, with angular shoulders and long limbs.

Clean-shaven as always, he still gave off the impression that he was bursting with intelligence and energy, his mind always two or three steps ahead of everyone else. Dressed impeccably, knife-edge creases on his pants, snowy laboratory coat, neatly knotted tie, always the best-clothed man in any room. Even his watch-chain glittered in the sunlight, polished to a gleam.

He was the best-looking, smartest, quickest-minded man she had ever met.

Though he never thought of himself that way, as better than others or smarter than others.

Everything about him, remembered, dear, precious…and…forbidden.

Her mind jerked back to that night, on his family’s yacht, in the Mississippi moonlight where he had proposed, getting down on one knee, offering her his heart, his love, and his future.

And she—who had been warring with herself for weeks that summer about what God wanted versus what she wanted—had been forced to refuse.

Something flashed for just a moment in his eyes just now. Was it pain, anger, or just surprise?
