In one reckless night, Camille Jameson's life was changed forever: a tall, handsome stranger, an evening of romance -- and enough regrets to last a lifetime. Two years later, Camille is a successful interior decorator with the opportunity to restore one of Mississippi's proudest plantations. She arrives excited and eager to face her greatest professional challenge to date -- until Zack Prescott saunters through the mansion's front door and back into her life. He is exactly as she remembers, except for the knowing look in his eyes that reminds her of what they once shared. Now, forced to live in unbearably close quarters, Camille and Zack will discover if they have the courage to face the past -- and, perhaps, build a future together . . .
"Author Sandra Brown proves herself top-notch".

By now you must know that one of my recent favorite authors is Sandra Brown. This is my 17th book by her. I have read a variety of her books; old and new and for me my favorite’s land within the late 1990’s through her current books.
Love’s Encore is a romance novel and was originally published back in the early 1980’s so you have to get yourself in that mindset when you start reading it. There is something to be said about the way romance novels were written thirty years ago. It wasn’t graphic or over done. It was just as inviting and sexual. Sandra Brown writes in a way that she allures you in, creates a level of anticipation and then allows for your imagination to take over.
Camille is hired by Rayburn Prescott to renovate his beautiful home in Natchez, Mississippi. It is her dream job and she couldn’t wait to get started. What she doesn’t realize is that she will be coming face to face with the one man that ruined her for all others and is the one even after two years she craves.
The past that they share has left them each in a tailspin of their own. On the outside, neither appears happy about having to spend time together but for the happiness of his father Zack will do whatever he has to and Camille can’t turn her back on the job.
Zack has never confided in anyone about that weekend two years ago. The time he spent with this girl who got under his skin and one that he would never get out of his system. The way things ended left him angry and confused. But it wasn’t any easier for Camille. What they shared was something that she would never forget but it was also something left her feeling ashamed.
Camille and Zack continue to try and resist these feelings that have resurfaced, feelings that are laced with hurt, confusion and desire. But when Rayburn realizes what is going on between these two he takes matters into his own hands. But will it be enough to heal the hurt that neither Zack nor Camille can shake.
Overall I enjoyed this one. It had all the SB trademark writing but I felt that there was too much back and forth with Zack and Camille. I loved the anticipation, the sexual tension and the challenges they faced, but I was getting whiplash with the back and forth with these two.
In the end I was happy. So all is good!! ❤
