Emily Snow plays by the rules and always does the right thing. But her quiet life changes when her mother dies, leaving her grief-stricken. With coaxing from her best friend, Samantha Baldwin, Emily decides to move from Atlanta to Washington D.C to start a new life. Samantha is sure that the new city will bring Emily her heart's desire, but that's exactly what Emily is afraid of. And each step closer to D.C. is a step closer to him - and a choice that could destroy not just her life as she knows it, but the image of the friend everyone believes her to be.

"Trice Hickman is an amazing writer and storyteller!" —Kimberla Lawson Roby
Everyone in Emily Eloise Snow's Atlanta, Georgia, hometown knows her as a sweet young woman who always does what's right. But when Emily's beloved mother dies, her quiet life is shaken to its core, leaving her devastated—and ready for a fresh start. Encouraged by her bolder, wilder best friend, Samantha, Emily moves to Washington, D.C. Samantha is sure D.C. will bring Emily her heart's desire. But that's exactly what Emily is afraid of. . .
Since she was eighteen, Emily has fought a fierce longing even Samantha doesn't know about—a love for a man that would break just about every rule she was taught to follow. Now, each step closer to D.C. is a step closer to him—and a sizzling, forbidden passion that could destroy not just her life as she knows it, but the image of the woman, and the friend, everyone believes her to be. . .
"Another wonderful, emotionally-charged page-turner by Trice Hickman." –Urban Reviews
