Like an old sweet song...
The road leads back to you.
It's been years since rancher/teacher, Justin Reed, an End of the Line transplant from Atlanta, Georgia has set foot in the city he fled. But with a class reunion and the goal to ease tensions with his twin brother, he must now face the woman who once broke his heart--but has never left his thoughts!
Life had not always been kind to Georgia Langley, until she met and fell head over heels in love with quiet Justin Reed. They say you never forget your "first love" and despite the circumstances that forced her to make a tough decision, he's never really moved completely out of her heart.
Once on the road, he headed in the direction of the equine ranch he’d once worked at on weekends. It was not far from the spot back in the woods where high school kids used to meet for bonfires and parties. It’s where they’d first met. He hoped she’d remember the place. “Hey, do you know if the old Stoneville place is still standing?” His heart tilted at the sound of her laughter.
“I haven’t heard about that place in years. I would guess it’s been torn down to make room for all the developments going on out this way,” she said.
“What do you say we find out?” He grinned and turned down a familiar road that twisted through a forest of trees. “Didn’t this used to be an old dirt road?”
“Welcome to progress,” Georgia said, her gaze on a number of larger homes built far off the main road, purposely camouflaged, it appeared, by the trees.
They followed another curve or two where the asphalt came to an abrupt stop, turning to gravel. Deep ruts threaded the road where four-wheelers and trucks had driven through the mud and rock. A “no passing” sign hung lopsided on a post listing precariously to one side. “Does this look familiar?” he asked.
She sat forward, peering through the window. Tall Georgia pine and ancient oaks surrounded them. Pine straw blanketed most of the ground. At the edge of the road stood a dogwood tree in bloom, its fragrant flowers adding splendor to the woods. Georgia shook her head. “It doesn’t, no. But it’s beautiful, wherever we are.” She glanced at him with a smile, then quickly looked away.
“From the look of that busted chain, it appears somebody was checking out something back in those woods.” He glanced at her and grinned. “You game?”
“If you are.” She shrugged, followed by a soft laugh.
That was the Georgia he’d fallen in love with. Fearless, ready for adventure. He eased around the post and drove over the chain half-buried in the mud. The truck jostled over the ruts, and though she braced one hand above her head for balance, her laughter prompted memories of carefree days when they’d taken his old truck out mudding.
“Hey, look there.” He slowed the truck at the sight of an old picnic table, one seat missing and turned on its side. Not far off were remnants of an old weed-covered stone ring. “I think that’s our fire pit.” He stopped the truck and got out to investigate the site. He scanned the area, now thick with underbrush, and thought of wild animals--something that had never occurred to them in high school.
Georgia sat watching from the truck.
“Aren’t you curious to see what we might find out here?” he called over his shoulder.
She hopped down from the truck and walked cautiously through the weeds. “Someone’s lost virginity?” She tossed him a grin.
He nodded with a chuckle. “I think I can manage to clean this out and build us a fire.”
“You think that will stave off the axe-murderers and zombies?”
He began to pull the overgrowth from the stones. “There is a blanket and picnic basket in the truck.”
“Well, aren’t you the well-prepared boy scout?” she teased as she scanned the area.
He glanced up, her smile hitting him with a sucker punch to his gut. “Ready, maybe.” He grinned. “Not so sure about the boy scout part, though.”
She raised a brow, turned on her boot heel, and walked back to the truck. He watched the hem of her dress flip with each step. He tore his gaze from her long, bare legs, tamping down his lust. He wasn’t sure where this day was headed, but he sure as hell knew he didn’t want it to end.
