The last thing Grace wanted to do was form attachments. Travis was looking for a new hometown, but the minute he met her… he knew that home wasn’t a place, it was her. He just had to convince her that what they have was worth sticking around for.
Grace Howard was excited to return to her childhood home in Grayslake, Georgia to visit her Aunt and Uncle. Living in the Arizona desert, watching her mom’s long line of boyfriends come and go, she has always dreamed of returning to the sultry days and balmy nights for one last visit before she sets off to see the world and forge her own future far away from relationships. Grace knows that forever doesn’t happen, not to her, and living in one place would be an exercise in frustration.
Travis Owen was looking for a home. Struggling with the clan politics in his hometown, he’s looking for somewhere to settle. Waiting to meet the Itan of Grayslake, he sees a curvy beauty get off the bus with a suitcase in tow. Both sides of him took notice, but he breaks a rule and there’s a price he’ll have to pay. Travis has to decide what’s more important to him, his instinctual need for this woman, or keeping his hide intact. With his bear riding him hard, he finds out that the dominant power in his life just might not be the command of an Itan, it just might be his heart.
Can Travis convince Grace that the adventure she craves is a life with him, or will she leave him when he needs her the most?
