Leigh Merrill spent ten years running away from her past. Now she’s going back . . .
A talented young book editor in New York City, Leigh leads a rich life full of writing, parties, and romance, far from the dust of her grandfather’s horse farm in Texas. And she is engaged to Joseph, a brilliant, generous man who adores her. Still, when she’s invited to a writer’s conference in Austin, Leigh can’t help but feel that Texas, with all of its tangled secrets, is calling her home.
She tells herself the trip is just a few days away to catch up with old friends, meet new authors, and clear her mind.

After years of running, but with nowhere left to hide, Leigh must finally decide what she truly wants . . . and just how much she’ll risk to get it.
