Ballerina Katrya Valentyn was taken away from everything she held dear when she was just a child. The one thing she held onto with a death grip was her passion for dance and she’s spent her life dedicated to her craft even though there were sacrifices along the way. When a foot injury puts a coveted role in jeopardy, she’s ready to do whatever it takes to get back on her toes. When her sister reaches out, she escapes the city and the worry that lives there, ending up in a place she’s only dreamed about.
Eden’s high school teacher Atticus Gill wants nothing more than to raise a family in the town where his roots are deep but, when the woman he loves, makes a decision he just can’t live with, he has to rethink his future. He knows better than anyone that if you’re not careful, history has a way of repeating itself. When Kat arrives in Eden, he’s about to find out if that adage is true.
Their timing was off the first time around. Now, a year later, when they come face-to-face with each other, Kat realizes that giving up one passion to sustain another might have been reckless and Atticus is beginning to see he rushed to judgment. The ripples of the past have stilled, and the chemistry is still there. Do they dare risk their hearts again or walk away?
