A broken truck, a broken career, and a breakup heard around the world land superstar John Tennessee McCord in Hellcat Canyon. Legend has it that hearts come in two colors there: gold or black. And that you can find whatever you're looking for, whether it's love . . . or trouble. JT may have found both in waitress Britt Langley.
His looks might cause whiplash and weak knees, but Britt sees past JT's rough edge and sexy drawl to a person a lot like her: in need of the kind of comfort best given hot and quick, with clothes off and the lights out.
Her wit is sharp but her eyes and heart--not to mention the rest of her--are soft, and JT is falling hard. But Britt has a secret as dark as the hills, and JT's past is poised to invade their present. It's up to the people of Hellcat Canyon to help make sure their future includes a happily ever after.
"Julie Anne Long's writing glows with emotional intensity and strong, passionate characterization." JAYNE ANN KRENTZ

Bestseller Long, known for her historical Pennyroyal Green series, has a brilliant, quirky style that gives her first contemporary a delightful gleam. Her clever phrases make her small-town setting and characters seem fresh and new. Locals are charmingly astonished when star actor John Tennessee McCord’s broken truck lands him in the small town of Hellcat Canyon, Calif. J.T. is swiftly smitten by waitress Britt Langley when she uses the word enigmatic in conversation over his lunch order. Having escaped a disastrous marriage, Britt protects her heart with an “invisible force field” that can’t quite hold off J.T.’s genuineness, intelligence, and charm. J.T. is a hero who puts Britt’s needs over his own, and Britt finds she understands J.T.’s deepest yet unacknowledged desire. The entire town roots for their romance, which is endangered more by Britt’s fears and some realistic, understandable miscommunications than by the possible return of J.T.’s former girlfriend, a fellow star whose posters plaster the town. This laugh-out-loud treat is warmly emotional and richly satisfying. Agent: Steve Axelrod, Axelrod Agency. (June)
