Publisher's Summary

They say you can't go home again, but Raine St. James doesn't know why anyone would want to.

Rory St. James was disowned after she came out at 17. She rebounded by moving to Chicago, changing her name to Raine and putting down her hometown to audiences around the country. Now, 10 years later, too old to be considered a gay youth, broke, evicted, and fresh off a much needed break-up, Raine St. James is forced to accept a job teaching at Bramble University in Darlington, the town she's been publicly bashing for the last decade.

Beth Devoroux was born and raised in Darlington. Despite losing her parents at a young age, she has been nurtured by the people of the town and is well loved by everyone who knows her. She leads a comfortable life with good job at Bramble University, a long-term but closeted relationship, friends that she can count on, and everything she thinks she wants, so why is she so drawn to a rabble-rouser like Raine St. James?

Two women who couldn't be less suited for romance - a hometown girl and the one who vowed never to look back - are drawn together by a shared past and a passion for each other neither can deny.

Close to home

Being from a small town is not easy in, and of its self. But being LGBTQ, within a small town that’s a very tight Christian orientated can feel not only frustrating; but also very isolating. And this story reflects that quite well, and in a way that draws you in. And will cause you to feel not only a frog in your throat. It will also cause you to feel more nervous, then a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs; as we tend to say. As well as all of the emotions I’ve felt living in a Small Texas town. I hope the author, rights a sequel to this book, as it would be a pleasure to follow the life of Ms. Roy St. James through the eyes of another.
