Becky Castle left everything behind in France, determined to live a new life, with a new name. After years of so much wrong, things are just beginning to go right…but she can't seem to find the peace she so needs to feel at home in the small town of Dry Bayou, Texas.
Jean-Marc La Fontaine left home to make his fortune on the Mississippi River. But when his riverboat casino runs aground of a greedy man, Jean-Marc runs back to the one place he could hide—and collides with a woman most intriguing.

Jean-Marc wants Becky more than he’s wanted anything in a long time—there’s something about her that draws him in, making him yearn for things he thought impossible. He’s determined to make Becky his, but when life hands him a chance to make things right, will he risk what he wants for a shot at a new beginning?
And what happens when Becky discovers that the charming Jean-Marc isn't the only man with her in his sights?
