Harper Marasek had spent her teenage years wanting nothing more than to escape Amethyst. When the charming and much-too-old-for-her Clay Wooten passed through town when she was fifteen, she found herself smitten...and for years she and Clay have shared an off-and-on intimacy that could never be enough for her. With a degree and the offer of a job waiting for her in her hometown...and a marriage proposal from her high school boyfriend...Harper contacts Clay to say goodbye forever.
Clay is tired of his law career and his insane, meddling family. On the pretense of getting away from his family, he suggests they take a road trip together for auld lang syne.
Harper has resigned herself to never capturing Clay's heart, but she's loved him for as long as she can remember. How can she refuse his offer when the happiest moments of her life have been spent with this man?
