He's not giving up his family without a fight

James Calhoun has never been able to resist Mara Tyler, or her knack for mischief. Her reputation as a reckless teenager drove Mara from their hometown. So Slippery Rock is the last place James ever expected to see her, and Mara's timing couldn't be worse. With the upcoming election for sheriff, she threatens the squeaky-clean image James needs to win. Because Mara has brought with her the result of their steamy affair: his two-year-old son, Zeke. After the initial shock, James is determined to have both his family and career. He just needs to convince Mara that her home is where it's always been. With him.


Book Excerpt
“Not that you have a friend. That you have a friend,” he said, emphasizing the word. “I always

wondered what made you walk away like that. Now I know. It wasn’t me.”

Mara’s eyes widened and her mouth dropped open. Not a friend. A friend. James thought she

was, what, bisexual, and that made her walking out on him okay? “I don’t know what you think

you understand, but you are completely and totally off base—”

“It’s okay to be a lesbian—”

“I’m not a lesbian.”

“Okay, a bisexual—”

“If that look means you think you might be joining in a little three-way action now that I’m back

in town, think again, Deputy Doofus. I’m not bisexual and I’m not a lesbian. I am a straight,

CIS-gendered female who likes men.”

James blinked. “But she’s… And you’re… You said she was here to hook up with you.”

“I didn’t mean hook up hook up. God, why do men assume women can be friends with one

another only if they’re also hooking up?”

“It was a natural assumption from the way you introduced her.”

“Are you sure you passed that police academy test? Your deductive reasoning could use a little

work.”

“Yes, I’m sure I passed it, and my deductive reasoning isn’t flawed. You insinuated—”

“—that she was my friend. She’s also my employee, and no, that doesn’t mean I pay her for

sex.” Mara intentionally lowered her voice even though there were no other people on the

sidewalk. “There is no sex between Cheryl and me. I thought you’d already gotten the memo that

my preferences lean toward men.”

“I didn’t know friends randomly meet up with other friends in strange towns where one or the

other of them is working.”

“Then you obviously don’t have very good friends.” Mara crossed her arms over her chest. “Or

you live in a town with a single stoplight, and so do all your friends.”

“Touch√©.” James put his hands in his pockets. “You look good.”

“So now that I’m not an attached lesbian-slash- bisexual, you’re going straight into hook-up

mode?”

James grinned. “It was a statement of fact,” he said, “not an invitation for either of us to go


jumping into whatever lake we were swimming in up until two years ago.”

This isn't the man she married… 

Jenny Buchanan never considered what "for better or for worse" meant when she married Adam Buchanan at nineteen. Six years and two little boys later, "for worse" arrives in the form of a tornado that ravages Slippery Rock and injures Adam. Now he's a stranger to his family…and love won't be enough to bring him back. 

Only when Jenny asks him to move out does Adam become the husband she needs…but Adam isn't the only one who's changed. As their attraction sparks back to life, Jenny and Adam must learn what it is to grow up—and grow together—before this small-town breakup lasts forever.
