HQN Books

This gripping story about finding love in the wake of past choices introduces us to two characters who have known one another since childhood, Claire Davidson and Riley McCord. In high school, their love ignited only to be swiftly snuffed out when Claire chose to spend her life with Riley’s best friend instead.

Afterward, Riley enlists in the Air Force where he stays until he is promoted to the rank of captain, only to be sent home on medical leave when he injures his shoulder. His return to Spring Hill, however, turns the town and its women on their heads. But his homecoming also offers Claire and Riley a second chance. Should they resolve old wounds and build a life together or go their separate ways?

Fossen weaves an emotionally insightful story about redemption, hope, and the price of forgiveness. Yet she also proves just how rich our lives can be if we seize the moment and courageously take the chance to reach for the future we want. Romance readers who love heroic men in uniform and sexy cowboys from the Lone Star state will thoroughly enjoy Texas on My Mind.
