Bed of Lies
Sometimes, only your heart knows the truth.
Just one more little lie…
It’s how Julie Morrison gets herself through the day. And it works. Since running away from a broken home, she’s built a nice life for herself in Memphis: a good career and an upcoming marriage to a man who loves her. Soon, she’ll have the stability she’s searched for her whole life, and finally leave her past behind.
Until running into Zach McRae brings it all back. Zach, who’s looked out for Julie since they were kids in Baxter, Ohio, hears her say she’s happy—and sees right through her. He insists on telling her about the half-brother she left behind, who needs her now more than ever. And on a night when Zach is overwhelmed by demons she never knew he had, Julie finds herself being strong for him—and spending the night.
Now Julie is headed back to Baxter to face the family situation she spent eight years trying to forget—and the friend-turned-lover who needs her as much as she needs him…
