 Once they had it all: a home with a man who adored her, three children they cherished, a life filled with passion and promise.

 

Until one troubled child cost them everything.

 

After a childhood of constant upheaval, all Cleo Formby wanted was to put down roots, to fill a house with family and love. When Malcolm Channing swept into her life, she gained it all: the home, the children, the love of a good man who adored her—

 

Until their firstborn daughter tore their family apart, and even the love between Cleo and Malcolm wasn't strong enough to survive the devastation.

 

Five years later, that daughter returns, destitute—with a child in tow. Cleo and Malcolm are thrown together again…and realize that their love has never died.

 

But both have ties to others now, and their daughter is no less troubled than before. Being in constant proximity yet unable to be together is a constant heartache, but the welfare of this little grandson has to take first place. 

 

When Malcolm's new life is shattered by treachery, can he and Cleo overcome the wounds of the past and find their way back to the magic that once filled the house that love built?

 

(A companion story to The Road Back Home, a different perspective of the story seen through Ria's eyes and going beyond)

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.
