Running from the past is easier than facing it…
Kat swore off horses after a riding accident took her sister. Five years later she still blames herself and deals with the guilt by getting lost in city lights, a corporate job, and a sham of an engagement. But when she returns home for her brother Jesse’s wedding, the past comes creeping back. She’s not sure she can face the memories, especially because many of them she shared with her brother’s best friend, Creed—a man Kat’s been in love with since high school and who was with her that fateful night.
Creed lives for one thing—rodeo—and he learned long ago that family is more than blood. Creed’s best friend’s parents took him under their wing when he was a teenager, treating him like a son. Which is why Kat, his best friend’s little sister, has always been off-limits. But when Kat comes home to Maple Bay, a ring on her hand and sadness in her heart, Creed is pulled to her once again. But is she worth the risk of losing the only family he’s got?
A feel-good story of second chances and how love, family, and forgiveness can heal all hearts.
