The man he’s become is not the boy she once knew—and he may never forgive her, once he knows the secret she’s been concealing

"Jean Brashear's distinctive storytelling voice instantly draws in the reader. She writes with warmth and emotional truth.” ~ #1 NY Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber

 In this Christmas story set in beloved Sweetgrass Springs, two young lovers torn apart years before come face to face unexpectedly in this emotional reunion romance by New York Times and USAToday bestselling Texas romance author Jean Brashear…

 

Gib Douglas has been on the road a long time, with no place to really call home. When he pays a Christmas visit to relatives in Sweetgrass Springs, the last person he expects to encounter is the girl he loved with all his heart, the girl who’d promised to marry him and love him forever…until she betrayed him and married someone else.

 

Dulcie Maguire gave up her dreams so that Gib could follow his all those years ago. She made a decent life for herself while watching him soar to success with great pride, never expecting to see him again. Now widowed, she's in dire straits with four children depending on her, when into her life walks Gib again—and she realizes that she’s never gotten over him.

 

But the man he’s become is not the boy she once knew—and he may never forgive her, once he knows the secret she’s been concealing.

He’s a country superstar; she’s a small town waitress. When the real world slams into their stolen dream, whose heart will be the one to break?


From NYT and USAToday bestselling Texas romance author Jean Brashear, a new and emotional Sweetgrass Springs story…


Jeanette Carson has been a fixture as a waitress in Ruby’s Cafe ever since high school. Walker Roundtree is country music’s brightest star, known by all for his laid-back charm and irresistible appeal to the opposite sex. Ever since his first visit to Sweetgrass Springs, there have been verbal fireworks between him and Jeanette as she proved to be the only woman immune to his charm.  


Now their paths have crossed in the outside world, and they’re seeing each other in a new light. Fireworks of a very different sort are sparking the sky—but then Walker’s world is upended by a tragedy, and the only one who steps in to help him is the very woman who swore never to put herself at his mercy. For a few days, they have only each other to rely upon, and these two lonely hearts find refuge in each other.


But all too soon, the real world demands its due, and their refuge is no longer private. The days of dreaming, the nights of yearning and hope face the harsh light of reality, and the only question is:


Whose heart will be the one to break?


An original love song, Never Forever, written and performed especially for this story by Eric Dove, is available at online music stores and in the audiobook.
