~ There's no chance for happiness when your least favorite person is the love of your life. ~
1978: Eli McClain is in Legend, Tennessee, as an honored guest, and everybody but Jeannie Adams is thrilled about it. She doesn’t want to see his smug, handsome face, or be reminded of the kiss they shared right before he abandoned the small town they both called home.
Eli remembers Jeannie as the girl who was always competing with him in school for the best grades. Now, all grown up, she’s just as competitive and stubborn as before--but also completely irresistible. It’s almost a shame he’ll just be in Legend for a few days. And a shame he can never let her know the results of the fame and fortune he left Legend to pursue.
Spend your holiday in Legend with this series prequel, and discover that love is sweeter, and hot cocoa tastes better, in the shadow of the Great Smoky Mountains!
