She’s the love of his life… but is he still hers?
FBI agent Derrick Matthews has finally found his childhood sweetheart and the love of his life—but she isn’t exactly happy about it! Years ago, Hannah Rawlings disappeared overnight when her family went on the run, and she blames Derrick. She tells him she’s moved on and he should, too, but Derrick fears Hannah’s still in danger. He vows to protect her—even if that means betraying her trust…again.
"This is a fast paced and well written story with a bit of romance and mystery. The characters are genuine and easy to like. I enjoyed reading Always The One, and I highly recommend it for romance readers. I look forward to more Harlequin Heartwarming tales!" Books and Zebras - Review
"As Tara Randall usually does, the reader is kept eagerly turning from one page to the next in this romantic, suspense/mystery novel... This is an intense, steadily flowing, poignant romance/mystery. The characters are endearing and defined well... There are several twists which keeps it quite unpredictable. It is well-written and touching."Rockin' Book Reviews - Review

"I LOVED it! . . . The characters and story drew me in right away. . . . Tara Randel did a terrific job with this one. While part of the series, this easily stands on its own. . . . Not only was this “heart-warming”, it was heart-breaking, endearing, and beautiful."Reading Excursions - Review
"I felt there was a strong balance of emotional drama combined with realistic suspense . . . What I appreciated was the quickening pace - how Randel started things off a bit slower but then gained a lot of momentum as she was disclosing how to connect Derrick with Hannah and vice versa."Jorie Loves A Story - Review
"Randal has pulled me into the story from the beginning to the end and I loved the suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to find out who done it. . . . This is a book I highly recommend if you want an excellent read. It is chalk full of mystery, romance not too heavily overdone and second chances. I promise that it will keep you glued to wherever you are at until the book is finished. I sighed happily after it was finished." Red Headed Book Lady - Review
"Always the One may be my favorite second chance with your first love book I’ve read yet. . . . There’s something about falling so hard and deep in love at a young age, a love that stands the test of time and separation, that gives me all the feels."Remembrancy - Review
"Randel’s smooth and engaging writing style, combined with layered characters & a dose of suspense make Always the One my favorite installment of this series! Derrick and Hannah are easy to love – and so are Hannah’s mom and Hannah’s student Tommy. . . . All of this makes for a highly entertaining, charming, and sweet read you’ll enjoy from start to finish!" Reading Is My SuperPower - Review
