Jason Sloan is known as Harper’s Crossing’s resident Romeo, and he’s never had to work too hard to live up to that nickname. With his easygoing charm, whiskey-colored brown eyes, and sinfully sexy half smile, women just seem to fall all over themselves when he’s around.

Well…most women, anyway. Katie Lawson’s the one woman who isn’t putty in his hands, and she’s the only one he’s ever wanted in his arms.

Katie Lawson left Harper’s Crossing in the middle of the night ten years ago, immediately after her high school boyfriend Nick’s funeral. She left behind all memories of Nick, and she left behind her life-long best friend, Jason Sloan.

Now she’s on the fast track to junior partner at one of San Francisco’s top law firms. She’s made a life for herself that’s all about maintaining order and sticking to the rules. Rule #1 is keeping herself WAY too busy to think about all that she ran away from. If she can do that, after all, she can keep everything under control.

But that rule is about to be broken. She’s headed back home to be the maid of honor in Nick’s little sister’s wedding. It’s time to face the truth she’s been avoiding all these years, the same one that sent her running ten years ago – that maybe she didn’t lose her first love the summer after high school. Maybe her first love has been waiting for her all this time, at home in Harper’s Crossing.
*Intended for Adults 18+*


Jason and Katie’s story was fantastic. Katie dated Jason’s best friend Nick from seventh grade all the way through high school. A horrible tragedy sent Katie running away all the way across the country. Ten years later Katie’s best friend was getting married and Katie is the maid of honor. Immediately you could feel the love Jason has for Katie, but would Katie be able to put Nick behind her and finally be happy? I love the way the author told Katie and Jason’s story. There was so much emotion in this introduction to this series. It was a fast-paced story and I enjoyed it, but found I had to go back and read a few sections, almost like I missed a part. The author did a great job completing the story. I look forward to reading more books in this series.
