Sometimes an event occurs that causes two people who’ve known each other forever to see the other in a different way. That’s what happens to the characters in Coming Home, a novella I originally wrote for the Taming the Alpha boxed set.
Kansas Fielding and Tobias Slater grew up next door to one another, making it difficult for him to see her as anything other than the younger sister of his best friends. Growing up, Kansas was just one of the group, playing alongside the boys. But when they got older, they shared a kiss. It changed them both forever. But Tobias had a job to do and disappeared for two years. In that time, Kansas has moved on with her life.
But sometimes you get a second chance. That’s what I love about romance. Two people, friends who never got a chance to be lovers, now have that opportunity. But people change a lot in two years, and neither of them are who they once were. Will they discover the passion is still lurking just beneath the surface or will they walk away?
Find out for yourself…
Sometimes friends make the best lovers…
This is a revised edition of a novella that originally appeared in the Taming the Alpha boxed set.
Kansas Fielding and Tobias Slater had always been friends, so when the two indulged in a kiss out of simple curiosity, the depth of the passion they ignited caught them both by surprise, and left them with an insatiable hunger for more. But the next day Tobias was gone, disappearing into a secret life Kansas knew nothing about. Now, two years later—years Kansas has spent building a life and forgetting Tobias—he’s returned, disillusioned and uncertain of his future.
Despite the unanswered questions hanging between them, neither can ignore the deep longing stirred up by that one long-ago kiss, and they recklessly surrender to the intensely erotic feelings. And while Kansas knows she’ll do whatever it takes to make Tobias admit his true feelings for her, it’s Tobias who will have to trust in himself to know he’s come home for good.
