He's not giving up his family without a fight

James Calhoun has never been able to resist Mara Tyler, or her knack for mischief. Her reputation as a reckless teenager drove Mara from their hometown. So Slippery Rock is the last place James ever expected to see her, and Mara's timing couldn't be worse. With the upcoming election for sheriff, she threatens the squeaky-clean image James needs to win. Because Mara has brought with her the result of their steamy affair: his two-year-old son, Zeke. After the initial shock, James is determined to have both his family and career. He just needs to convince Mara that her home is where it's always been. With him.

This isn't the man she married… 

Jenny Buchanan never considered what "for better or for worse" meant when she married Adam Buchanan at nineteen. Six years and two little boys later, "for worse" arrives in the form of a tornado that ravages Slippery Rock and injures Adam. Now he's a stranger to his family…and love won't be enough to bring him back. 

Only when Jenny asks him to move out does Adam become the husband she needs…but Adam isn't the only one who's changed. As their attraction sparks back to life, Jenny and Adam must learn what it is to grow up—and grow together—before this small-town breakup lasts forever.

About the Author

Once upon a time, Kristina Knight spent her days running from car crash to fire to meetings with local police--no, she wasn't a troublemaker, she was a journalist. Her career took her all over the United States, writing about everything from a serial killer's capture to the National Finals Rodeo. Along the way, she found her very own Knight in Shining Cowboy Boots and an abiding love for romance novels. And just like the characters from her favorite books, she's living her own happily ever after.

Kristina writes sassy contemporary romance novels; her books have appeared on Kindle Best Seller Lists. She loves hearing from readers, so drop her a line!


What literary pilgrimages have you gone on? – I haven’t! Although, I’ve seen several times on Facebook that the home that was the inspiration for Pride & Prejudice is now for sale…and I figure, why pilgrimage when I could just buy that? You know, if I win the lottery…..

What is the first book that made you cry? – PS I Love You (the YA book, not the Cecilia Ahearn book…although, that one, too). I read it in junior high, and the thought of the heroine losing her first love to cancer was just …. Too much.

Does writing energize or exhaust you? – A little bit of both, actually. When the words are flowing, I have a tendency to get totally lost…which leads to more time at the keyboard than I should probably spend…which leads to lost sleep and caffeine highs…and coming down from those is exhausting!

What is your writing Kryptonite? – A great book that I’m reading, because I never want to stop reading to get back to my own writing!

Did you ever consider writing under a pseudonym? – I did, but ultimately decided not to because I couldn’t come up with a pseudonym that didn’t sound ridiculously made up!

What other authors are you friends with, and how do they help you become a better writer? – I have a core group of writers who all live nearby-ish…and they are so helpful – in goal setting, in brainstorming, in picking up the pieces when something not great happens…and in celebrating all those little moments!

Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book? – I have several stand-alone titles, and 3 series…but I hope that the thing that connects readers to all my books (be they stand-alone or series work) is that homey, heartfelt feel of the writing.

What authors did you dislike at first but grew into? – CS Lewis! I knew I *should* like his books, but when I first started reading them (3rd grade) I was a little too young to really ‘get’ them. I love him now, though.

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal? – A unicorn – because who doesn’t need a little extra glitter in their life?

Do you hide any secrets in your books that only a few people will find? – I haven’t yet…but now that you’ve got me thinking about it…I just might!

What is your favorite childhood book? Again, there are so many! I’m going to go with Little Women, although I read it in high school and not elementary school. I just adore the sisters’ relationships!
