Publisher's Summary

Cassie Parker has grown used to denying her sexuality. Her father, the fire-and-brimstone Reverend Parker, has made that a necessity. Raised in a web of secrets, sadness, and under the heavy hand of her father's righteous wrath and intolerance, Cassie turns to her art to fill the hole in her heart and erase the memory of a mother who abandoned her in childhood. Then Luke Winston enters her life. Strong, mysterious, and beautiful, Luke sparks Cassie's desire, and takes her heart to places she's never known. Soon Cassie can no longer deny her attraction to women - and especially to Luke.  

When Cassie's father makes an unexpected visit, the intrusion on her new life explodes as dark family secrets are revealed. Will Cassie choose a life without family...or a life without love?

another excellent story

As a pk myself I could relate to this story on so many levels. I know we’ve come a long way as a nation, but it’s a good reminder that everyone’s journey to self awareness is different. love ways wins if we have the courage to embrace it.

Beautiful story

Great characters. I want to move to their small artist town. Of course it was another amazing reading by the spectacular Abby Craden.

Amazing and difficult.

Coming from an extremely difficult religious upbringing...there are parts of this book that really hit way too close to home. Let me just say...religion ruins lives. It took me until my 30s to realize that I would need to leave every part of my life just to be myself also. And altho I am now happily married to my amazing wife...it was not an easy journey. This kind of religious brainwashing is not easy to overcome. Learning how to stand up for yourself and get beyond the shame and guilt and fear is a lifelong challenge. Excellent book.

Pure pleasure

The combination of Gerri Hill story and the sexy voice of Abby Craden is a vining combination.
This story of an artist who grew up with a father who is a reverend anti gay, who denied her sexuality for so many years, is a well written story and actually I am waiting for a sequel., it left me on a cliff hanger. not fair.

Wait! What happened?

The only reason I had to give a 4 star review, is because I wanted to know what happened next.
Otger than that, another fantastic story by Hill.

now that's a romance Novel

this story and these ladies, finally I feel like I'd found what I've been searching for with the multitude of lesfic I've purchased. I wish I could say exactly what it is about this story, if only so I could seek that out in other books, but I suspect it's a combo of the author's great storytelling skills and (of course) the spectacular narration of Abby Craden (I basically consider myself in a long term relationship with the more masc/husky voice of Ms Craden) it is just such fulfilling attraction through developing relationship writing. if course, it has to be one of the shorter stories *sigh*. loved it!

Different in a good way

I liked this book and the way it addresses mental health, discrimination and even abuse. It made me cry in places. I was so hopeful for Cassie, I hoped there’d be a follow up! I’m going to check now!
