Like a freight train
Running inside my chest.
Like rain falling into my eyeballs.
Gritted teeth and short of breath,
I struggle to recall
Of the sea.

Ten years ago, Paige Cox left her hometown in the mountains of North Carolina, swearing she'd never go back to her cheating husband, her alcoholic mother and the best friend who'd betrayed her.

But Sean's life is in the town he still calls home. Can he convince Paige it's worth putting down roots? Or will his own past prevent him from finally having the life he's dreamed of?

She shook her head, her eyes caught by his. God, this man knew how to get under her skin. Under her skin, into her mind…as if he were determined to own her, as if her determination to hold him off was just fuel for his determination to have her. It was enough to make her grit her teeth against a wild desire to give into him.
His smile was confident. “Because I’m going to tell you all my secrets. And when I do, you’ll want to give me something back.”

"What a journey! Where the Heart Lies is a romance with heart, heat, and a big ambitious story covering miles of emotional terrain. You'll be swept away."
"Where the Heart Lies is an ambitious and engrossing tale, full of complexities of both character and plot. With her narrative skill and unforgiving wit, Flye had me alternately laughing and crying. Read this one on the beach, by the fire, in your bed… wherever. Just read it!"
