Kate Jacobson took the first bus out of Madelia, Washington the day she graduated high school, and she hasn’t looked back. With a blossoming medical career at a busy New York hospital, she has found her calling. But when her best friend is gunned down in front of her by a patient, Kate turns back to her small town roots, looking for stability and a place to belong. Logan McAllister has worked his entire life to make the people of Madelia see him as more than the kid from the wrong side of the tracks. He’s built a business, revitalizing the historic landmark homes in town to their former glories. He grew up with parents so completely infatuated with each other, he can’t imagine wanting to jump into the suffocating arms of love himself. But when his high school crush Kate comes back to town, he can’t help but fan the fires and reignite their old flame. When Kate’s clinic is vandalized, the two set aside the differences stemming from their pasts and set out to find and stop the vandal. As they work to solve one problem, their undeniable feelings present another problem that’s even more dangerous-at least for her heart. Kate can handle the crazy politics. What she can’t handle is smart, sexy, reformed bad boy Logan, who keeps showing up on her doorstep, determined to kiss the living daylights out of her. Logan was wrong for her before, is he even more wrong for her now?
