When aspiring-writer Mallory Reynolds packed up for New York City, she ditched more than her quiet hometown of Magnolia Bayâ€”she left her high-school sweetheart, Josh Loveless, behind. But when the big city didnâ€™t deliver big contracts on her novels, she turned to writing erotica under the pen name Farrah Ivory to spare her family any embarrassment. Soon, her scandalously-sexy series, The Lost Diaries of Scarlet, is a break-out hit. Just as Mallory begins to enjoy her sweet success, her publisher leaks her true identity and a media firestorm ensues. Exposed, she decides thereâ€™s nowhere to hideâ€”except for home.
For Josh Loveless, getting over Mallory Reynolds hasnâ€™t been easy, but heâ€™s done his best to move on. For starters, heâ€™s turned his love of the outdoors and rock-climbing into his own business. And just as things are starting to settle for him, he learns Malloryâ€™s coming home to ride out her scandal, and suddenly his world is turned upside down againâ€¦
Can Mallory convince her friends and family that sheâ€™s still the same good-hearted girl they knew? And more importantly, can Josh trust the woman sheâ€™s become, and give her a second chance to rewrite their love story with a happy ending?
