Hometown Promise
by Merrillee Whren

Lukas Frye has moved to Kellersburg, Ohio, to renew his relationship with his grandfather, who lives there. For the past six years, Lukas has worked hard to put his reckless past behind him, and Kellersburg seems like the perfect place to do that—until he encounters Juliane Keller. She could derail all his plans.

Juliane remembers Lukas from her college days, and her memories of him are anything but good. He says he’s a changed man, but can she trust that claim? Besides, his presence in town is a constant reminder of the secret her family harbors.

When secrets are revealed, will love find a way to forgive?

Originally published February 2010 in mass market paperback by Steeple Hill Love Inspired #544.

She has also won the 2006 Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best Love Inspired of 2006, the Georgia Romance Writers’ Maggie Award for Excellence, and the 2016 Inspirational Reader’s Choice Award. Merrillee’s writing journey has had as many stops along the way as her life’s journey. She wrote her first novel while she was in high school and shared it with her friends. However, many years passed before she considered writing anything for publication. Finally in 2004, after writing and revising eight manuscripts, she made her first sale. THE HEART’S HOMECOMING was an August 2005 release from Harlequin Love Inspired. Because she loves stories with happy endings, she is thrilled to be writing inspirational romance, stories with emotional and spiritual happy endings. Merrillee is an active member of Romance Writers of America and a member of several of their local chapters, Faith, Hope and Love, Saguaro Romance Writers, which meets in Tucson, AZ. She is also a member of Novelists, INC. She is married to her own personal hero, her husband of forty-plus years, and has two grown daughters. She has lived in South Dakota, Montana, Spokane, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Chicago and Amelia Island, but now makes her home in the Arizona desert. When she’s not writing or working for her husband’s recruiting firm, she spends her free time playing tennis, bridge or walking while she plots her novels.
