A homecoming that will tie them together once more…or drive them apart for good.
Reagan McElroy is a woman on a mission. The former Secret Service agent now works for Regency Security, and she's promised the Blakes—the famous, wealthy, and huge family in Texas—that she can bring home their long-lost nephew. That nephew is Colton Cahill, U.S. Marshal, and the son of Gabe Blake, MIA in Vietnam. But Colton is also a man she's had a serious romantic history with...and it didn't end well. Things between them had been heating up faster than an oven on a hot summer day, but then Colton suddenly went cold along with their relationship. One way or another, she intends to drag Colton to Texas to meet the family of the father he's never known …and get some answers for herself. Such as why a man who had stolen her heart suddenly forced her to leave everything they'd had together behind.
Colton Cahill is stubborn, dedicated, and no-nonsense, so he isn't exactly ecstatic when the woman he once loved walks back into his life and drops a bombshell that rocks his world. It seems Colton is related to the famous Blakes in Texas through his father, a man who left his mother before Colton was born. Only there's far more to the story than he ever realized. Not only that but seeing Reagan again has only rekindled feelings he believed he'd put behind him forever. After all, Reagan had left him behind and moved to Texas to work for the Blakes when he'd needed her most. He intends to get to the bottom of that mystery and uncover the truth about his father. For Colton, this homecoming might be the hardest trial he's ever endured.
