Mia Darcy plays by the rules, and her Daddy, Samuel, for better or worse has made them all. She takes care of her ailing mother, she manages PR for the family’s distillery, Fire Creek. And every day she quietly resents the fact that he stepped in and kept her from being with the one man she loved… a man who still lives there in their small town of Fontaine, Kentucky and who haunts her every minute of the day, waking or asleep.
Bennett Hayes has loved Mia his whole life, and for one brief moment, when they were young and full of hope, it seemed like even the long history of bad blood between their families wasn’t enough to keep them apart. But he’d been wrong. Mia never showed the night they were supposed to run away together and when he confronted her about it, she broke his heart.
But fate and circumstance throw them together again and the fire that raged between them at eighteen is even hotter now. The burn is inevitable. But there are forces at play, people on the periphery of their lives whose agenda goes far beyond just keeping them apart… they want Mia dead and will stop at nothing to make that happen.
The past has a way of coming back and biting you the proverbial ass. Mia and Bennett have been carefully avoiding each other for years. Ever since Mia walked out of his life. Not an easy task living in a small town. When Mia finds herself on the wrong side of a deadly mystery, Bennett is there to save her life. Interesting characters, a compelling story line and good writing all combine to keep you engaged. A lot more than sparks fly in this story as these two rekindle an old flame.
