LATEST RELEASE - THAT ONE SUMMER

Tuckaway Bay  Books  by Madelaide James That One Summer, Book 1 He’s the one who got away. She’s the one who couldn’t commit. Lia Langston left Tuckaway Bay twenty years ago, leaving behind an attractive job offer and the young man she’d fallen in love with that summer. The breakup hurt them both, but she was expected back home in Chicago where a new job was waiting, one her father had pulled strings to help her land. While Lia wasn’t thrilled with the idea of jumping from beach life into Corporate America, as a new college graduate, she knew the family expectations. She meanders through life—marriage, a child, divorce, career—yet there is one constant. She never misses a summer trip back to the beach with her college girlfriends. By the time beach week rolls around each year, she is more than ready to shake off her troubles, unwind, and unplug with the girls. And every summer, Lia wonders if she might run into Zach Allen again. She doesn’t. Then Zach steps back into her life. Suddenly

BROKEN

Rodeo took him from her once. Will it take him again?

It’s been a decade since Garth Nash left the Triple R Ranch to become a bull riding star. Now he’s back home to pay his final respects to the man he’d loved like a father—even though the visit is long overdue, and he feels a mite guilty having not come home sooner—and to console the pesky tomboy he’d loved like a little sister.

Garth soon realizes that ten years changes things. For one, there’s nothing pesky or tomboyish about Amarilla Ray now. She’s a pretty, barrel racing, ranch running cowgirl who knows exactly what she wants—to run her fathers’ ranch and compete in barrel racing one more time. Thing is, what does he want? What direction is his life taking him?

Rilla Ray loved Garth like a big brother all those years ago—except for that one bewildering not-brotherly-at-all kiss that was a huge mistake. Ten years later, her feelings spike back to that kiss and the day he left, and her emotions take her places she’s not yet ready to go. She just lost her father. She’s not risking losing Garth again.

Garth is back, broken and battered from years of bull riding. Has he changed? Could they pick up where they left off, after that forbidden kiss? Is he home to stay or is this just a stopover until he’s healed and ready to get back on a bull again?

Rodeo took him from her once—leaving her heartbroken and confused—and she knows he’s bound to leave again. She’s not a lovesick teenager any longer, but will her full-grown woman heart fare any better after he’s gone?
