@Archaeolibrary, @GoddessFish, @mariaimbalzano,

#Contemporary, #Romance,

The untimely death of EJ Hampton’s father kills her dream of practicing law with him in her hometown of Wylder. Heartbroken, she now has two weeks to organize the practice for sale. When she meets her father’s millionaire client Dylan Addison, he is demanding and entitled—yet his charisma captivates her.

Dylan is under pressure to renovate the Wylder Hotel before his father pulls the plug on his project. He needs EJ’s expertise, but she is bent on returning to her life in San Francisco despite the fireworks between them.

EJ walks a tightrope trying to balance Dylan’s needs against her own, but doing so is far more complicated when emotions get in the way.

On Tuesday morning, as I drove my rental car from the Cheyenne airport toward Wylder, conflicting emotions bombarded my brain. I was returning for more than my usual long weekend or holiday visit. This place had been my home, a small town where its innate comradery was fostered by monthly community gatherings big and small: the Spring Festival, the Fourth of July celebration, the Harvest Ball, seasonal dances, and various potluck dinners and picnics. I’d known every business owner and their families, from the shops in town to the ranches and farms just outside its borders. I’d also known the teachers, coaches, ranch hands, and sales people.

And they all knew me as one of Hank Hampton’s daughters.

The one who was still alive.

Despite all the happy memories of my twin sister and me growing up, I’d unraveled when Ashley died at age eighteen. I was her best friend, and she was mine. We had planned our future careers together while huddling under the sheets when we were supposed to be sleeping. Ashley and EJ, future attorneys-at-law, who would join our father and make it a formidable family firm.

Even now, after thirteen years had passed since she left me, I still had a huge hole in my heart. Sure, the acute pain had dissipated, with time being the age-old healer. And living and working in San Francisco kept the tangible memories at bay. But every time I returned home, my heart twisted, and it didn’t uncoil until I escaped the town limits.
