Teenage Bobby Compton’s death shocked the community of Rivermist, Georgia. It also ruined the lives of Jennifer Gardner and Neal Cain. Jennifer’s life spiraled out of control until her daughter was born which forced her to grow up, and Neal got sent to prison.

Neal, eight years later, has returned home to help with his ailing dad. Jennifer, a single mom, has also returned, attempting to make a go of things. Jennifer and Neal were in love back when they were teens, and those feelings have not gone away. However they are much different people, having been shaped by everything that’s happened. They cannot change the past, but can they still have a future?

“Because of a Boy” is the first novel in the “Atlanta Heroes” series and was released in 2007. Nurse Kate Rhodes is duty bound to report the abusive dad of one of her charges, despite the attorney that is proclaiming his client’s innocence.

Stephen Creighton is not in the habit of getting too involved with his cases. For him, it’s get in, fight like hell, and just get out. However he must invest more when he finds out Kate’s actions have put his clients’ lives in jeopardy. And now the son and dad have gone into hiding.

With the dad being sought after by the authorities and the son desperately in need of medical treatment, it is a race against the clock. One that Kate and Stephen can only win if they work together. Something that is even tougher to do when the tension between the two of them becomes white hot passion.

However there is a lot that Maddie does not know, about the 200 year old curse on her family, about the shadowy group that wants to exploit the Temple twins’ powers all for themselves, about the sexy psychiatrist that has offered to help her. Only way to find all of the answers and avoid getting pulled into the abyss of madness is to trust her heart and confront her own Dark Legacy.

This ultimatum tilts Dru Hampton’s contented life in Chandlerville, Georgia, on its ear. The guy that Vivian, her cantankerous benefactor and boss, wants Dru to partner up with, and even live with, is named Brad Douglas, who has let Dru down every way that a man possibly can.

Sheriff’s deputy Brad Douglas has come a long way since his rebellious youth. He has returned home to care for Vivian, his ill grandma. He has kept out of Dru’s way all of these years to make up for the hurt he caused her once. Now, the delightfully mischievous Vivian’s dying wish is for them to rebuild at least a working relationship, and she is betting on rediscovering so much more.

The Douglas home and the family business that Brad and Dru both cherish so much is going to get sold if they do not resolve their differences. Can these two childhood sweethearts make up and reclaim one another’s hearts before it is too late?
