Overview
They can't hide from desire...
After life as a cop in Denver leaves him burned-out, Lucas Ridgeway returns to Walkers Ford, South Dakota, to serve as their chief of police. He's hoping to start over with a clean slate and avoid any emotional entanglements--even after his next-door neighbor kisses him senseless. Alana is passionate, dedicated, and most importantly leaving town soon. So why not have some fun?
Alana Wentworth comes from a larger-than-life political family, yet all she wanted was to be a librarian. Then after an embarrassing marriage proposal from Mr. Not-For-Her, she jumps at the chance to live her dream for a few months. She wasn't supposed to get involved with the community--or sexy, troubled Lucas. But when the time comes for Alana to put Walkers Ford behind her, she's not ready. And Lucas may not be ready for her to go...

Calhoun's fourth contemporary (after Uncommon Passion) is sensual and emotional. With only two weeks left on her contract in tiny Walkers Ford, S.D., traveling librarian Alana Wentworth steps out of her comfort zone to initiate a whirlwind affair with Lucas Ridgeway, the gorgeous chief of police. Lucas is captivated by Alana's mix of forward kisses and innocent blushes, and an arrangement of passion by night and business by day suits his need for emotional distance. Alana's developing connections to the townspeople and town business tug on her desire to belong somewhere, but family obligations pull her in another direction, and her upcoming departure date forces a decision. Lucas sometimes sends mixed signals, but Alana surprises him by knowing when to stand up to him and when to let him be. Calhoun skillfully shows the reality of smalltown life on both sides of the tracks. Readers will be drawn in by complex secondary characters, a solid relationship journey, and the details of Alana and Lucas's thoughts, desires, fears, and hope. (Feb.)
