What do you do when the heart wants what it wants?
Rowan Barnes was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. When her dream job as a chef at an up-and-coming restaurant lands her in the heart of the Lone Star State, Rowan finds herself out of her comfort zone. While purchasing beef from a local cattle ranch, she meets Kate Landreth, a stunning rancher whose heart is as big as the state she loves. As the two women become closer, Rowan reluctantly begins to see Texas and her people through Kate’s eyes, but Kate is hesitant to fall too deeply for a woman who makes it clear that Texas will never be her home.
Much to her surprise, Rowan finds herself falling for more than just the beautiful rancher. She begins to believe there might be a future for her in Texas after all, and Kate finally begins to trust that Rowan is not planning on breaking her heart. That is until Rowan is fired. Left with a shattered ego, Rowan returns to the familiarity of her beloved Rose City. But Portland doesn’t hold the appeal it once did, and she finds herself missing all the things she has come to love about Texas.
Rowan wants to move on, needs to put Texas in the past. But if home really is where the heart is, then her new home is deep in the heart of Texas with Kate. The only question that remains is whether she’ll let herself have what she wants the most.
Home is a traditional contemporary romance that will make you fall in love with good food and working women.
