Lisa Kleypas

St. Martin's Paperbacks

Liberty Jones has dreams and determination that will take her far away from Welcome, Texas—if she can keep her wild heart from ruling her mind. Hardy Cates sees Liberty as completely off-limits.

But the relationship goes deeper than people think, and Liberty begins to discover secrets about her own family’s past.
