Bad boy Zach may be a stranger in his own town, to his own daughter, but Fran sees the changed man in him. Can Fran convince him she’s more than the girl next door?
When the black sheep of Tobias, Wisconsin, returns home, the repercussions reach far and deep.
Handsome and charming Zach Corbett left the small town eight years ago to make his own way... and never looked back.
Not at the pregnant ex-girlfriend he left behind. Or at what his departure might mean for his brother Steve, whose wedding was put on hold to raise a baby.
Tensions are high, and there’s only one person who might be able to redeem the Corbetts’ troubled family reunion, a woman who has truly seen Zach since they were kids.
Fran Dalton has always seen beyond the bravado to the pain in those beautiful baby blues of Zach’s. Now, she can see he’s different. And, unlike when they were kids, now she’s grabbed his attention.
If only she can draw Zach into a loving relationship, and prove how much he’s changed, his fractured family might just find it in their hearts to forgive. And heal.
Can Zach and Fran escape the past’s hold to make a future?

Customer ReviewsSee All
A perfect book about a prodigal son and a steadfast woman. I loved every page of this book. Fran and Zach were a perfect pairing and the perfect compliment to each other. I couldn’t put it down.
Author needs to write one more book to “check in” with all the characters and see how they’re all doing.
