After years of jumping through other people’s hoops to be all they thought she should be, and enduring a tragedy no mother should, self-described “newbie” Christian, Harper Townsend, has finally found her true calling … and her true love. Until it appears that to follow one may mean leaving the other behind.


Adolescent Psychologist, Wyatt McCowan, is beyond delighted to have the-girl-that-got-away back in his life, and his heart. But even as they fall more in love, he realizes that being obedient to God’s calling on each of their lives may pull them apart. She rejected him once in favor of another, which left him hurt and angry. But this time, he can’t fault her for following hard after the God she loves with all her heart, even if it means leaving him once again.Will Ryan return to his faith and stay with her in Sweetheart or leave when the election ends?


Book Excerpt

 "Harper." His eyes locked on hers but with no hint of the grin he'd offered the others.

"Here." A completely unnecessary answer. The silence stretched into awkwardness before he looked back down at the tablet and cleared his throat. "Trent, Shannon."

"Present!" The light-haired girl next to her sang out, and the tightness in Harper's chest reminded her to breathe.

His gaze slid from Shannon back to Harper, then he quickly looked down and rubbed his forehead with his fingers. Another flash from the past raced through her mind. A memory from that night, rubbing his brow with his fingers mere seconds before she shut the door on him, cutting him out of her life forever.

But forever had only lasted eleven years, because there he was. Plain as day. Right in front of her.

Shannon leaned in. "I think our hunky professor might be crushing on you!"

Harper shook her head. "Definitely not crushing." Not now, at least.

Her face heated as her hands squeezed together on top of the desk. She thought she'd left all of those memories behind. All of that pain. Yet here she sat, face to face with one of her biggest regrets.

He set the tablet on the podium. "Let's get started." He squared his shoulders, standing at the front with his hands braced on his hips, looking everywhere but at her.
