Two broken hearts. Ten years apart. Can one small town bring them back together?


Ten years in the military might have changed me, but it didn’t change the reasons I left Emerald Creek. Back for a short visit to my family after a decade away, I’ll do everything to keep my stay painless.

It will be short.

There will be no trips down memory lane.

There will be little to no reconnecting with locals.

One thing is certain: I won’t run into the girl who broke my heart. She’s long gone, married away.

Or so I thought.

All it takes is a pulled muscle, a massage tent at the town fair, and some not-so-subtle interventions from my friends for me to suddenly be alone with her—with me flat on my back on the massage table and her kneading me like I’m a stranger. Like what we had back then meant nothing to her.

She won’t even talk to me? Fine. I’m ready to bolt anyway.

But when the townies engineer another close encounter and I find out what she’s trying to hide from me, it’s Operation Get Her Back.


When I was eighteen, he broke my heart. Now he’s back, chipping away at the resentment I carefully crafted to protect myself. Giving into him would be so easy. Feel so right. Taste so good. I know it would. As far back as I can remember, he was the only one I ever wanted.

 But what would happen if I did? He’s not here to stay. He’ll soon be gone halfway around the world, and I’ll be left behind.

I don’t know that I can handle it.

I don’t know that I want to. 

Return To You is a sweet and spicy small-town romance with a host of nosy friends, a meddling cat, and no third-act breakup. Book 3 of the Emerald Creek Series, it can be read as a standalone.
