My True North
by Barbara Longley

Not long after Theresa Rhodes won Star Launch, a televised singing competition, the carefully constructed props of her life began to crumble, including her marriage. Theresa wants nothing more than to heal and to become stronger for herself and her children. While discussing Star Launch's fifteenth anniversary show with Caleb, her band's director, she admits she's ready to quit singing. He suggests they collaborate on a new song for the show. She agrees for the sake of the band, but she's in no way ready to face her growing attraction to Caleb.

Wracked with guilt and grief over the car accident that took his wife and daughter, Caleb McGee has sworn never to risk his heart again. When Theresa tells him she's thinking about quitting, he makes it his mission to support the talented singer through the difficulties she's facing. After all, it's the music that matters, and she was born to sing. As they work together, his burgeoning feelings for her cannot be denied. Yet, even after a shared night of passion, he's determined to keep his feelings---and his heart---to himself.

Just as their fragile bond deepens beyond the bounds of friendship, Theresa and Caleb are forced to confront their painful pasts, or forever lose their chance at happiness together.
