This story is releasing November 14 and with it, I really wanted to take each ready on a journey. Lately I have been very unsettled in my writing. It gets harder and harder sometimes. So with this story, I wanted to go back to an earlier time in my career.
Heartward is set in the same world as the Love Means… stories. I wanted to go back there and visit old friends. Geoff and Eli are in this book and they teach a little boy and a man who had lost their way, that there is goodness, kindness, and love in the world. Along the way we meet old friends and make new ones… and maybe a few of those will be horse friends. You never know.
He doesn’t know that home is where his heart will be….
Firefighter Tyler Banik has seen his share of adventure while working disaster relief with the Red Cross. But now that he’s adopted Abey, he’s ready to leave the danger behind and put down roots. That means returning to his hometown—where the last thing he anticipates is falling for his high school nemesis.
Alan Pettaprin isn’t the boy he used to be. As a business owner and council member, he’s working hard to improve life in Scottville for everyone. Nobody is more surprised than Alan when Tyler returns, but he’s glad. For him, it’s a chance to set things right. Little does he guess he and Tyler will find the missing pieces of themselves in each other. Old rivalries are left in the ashes, passion burns bright, and the possibility for a future together stretches in front of them….
But not everyone in town is glad to see Tyler return….
