Betrayal. Such an ugly word, and one Will Ingram knows well, thanks to his former girlfriend who, for reasons unknown, sabotaged his career as one of the country’s up-and-coming artists in New York. With nothing to his name but a few art supplies he can’t bring himself to sell, and a boarding pass for Texas, Will hits rock bottom, hooking up with a woman who comes on to him in the airport. He thinks it’s a chance encounter until she turns up in his small town. Despite his suspicions about her, he can’t deny the physical attraction sizzling between them. Is she the muse he thought he’d lost forever or just another woman with betrayal on her mind?
MacKenzie Carlysle had to admit, the sex had been mind-blowing. Life-altering. But she wouldn’t know the life-altering part until days later when the sexy guy she seduced in the airport turns up in the same small Texas town where she hopes to rebuild her career in public relations after her boyfriend/employer left her holding the proverbial bag in a scandal that rocked the New York art world. Everyone in Willowbrook knows Will Ingram, W.H. Ingram to the art community. The one man on the planet she should stay far away from, but there is no denying the chemistry between them. She has to tell him who she is and the part she played in destroying his career, but when she’s in his arms, her past doesn’t exist. There’s only Will, and a future she wants but knows she’ll never have.
