Long Way Home Publisher's Summary

After seven years in prison, Duncan Malone has returned home to Washita, Texas, to reclaim his land that now belongs to strangers. But his homecoming isn't a warm one; his mother lies in a catatonic state, and the residents of Washita aren't taking well to a murderer living amongst them.

Franki Taylor is seven-months pregnant, alone, and forced to run her grandfather's farm as he succumbs to pneumonia. So when Duncan, the farm's former owner, comes seeking a job, Franki knows she's in no position to turn him away. Soon, their convenient partnership turns into a budding passion they're both powerless to resist. But both Franki and Duncan have an enemy lurking in their midst, determined to destroy not only their love, but their very lives.
