Overview

Meagan Morris has lost everything. Her family is dead, and all that remains of them, all that was endowed to her, has been stolen.Desperate to retrieve her legacy, Meagan disguises herself and attempts to rob King of her grandmother’s pearls at gunpoint. When Officer Dell arrives at the scene, King doesn’t turn Meagan in, but rather drops her jewels in a bag and gives it to her. As Meagan searches pawnshops and the Internet to recover her lost heirlooms, King now not only fears for his life, but is deeply concerned that his father, Jack, or brother, Ace, may soon find themselves looking down the barrel of a gun. All the while, King must contend with the demands of Gayla, who unabashedly wants King for her own and who has lied to him about the parentage of her child. Guilt-ridden, King must work day and night to satisfy Gayla’s demands for money and sex until the truth sets him free. Set among the cattle ranches of America’s Southeast, What Matters Most delivers steady suspense and savory romance as Meagan and King’s worlds collide!

Acknowledgements

This book would not exist if it were not for the amazing cheerleaders in my life. Thank you, Rene and Pat, for your encouragement and tireless eyes. Thank you, Sylvia, for your willingness to talk endlessly about anything regarding the book. Thank you, Danny and Weston, for putting up with piles of unfolded clothes. I love you all. Thank you, Catherine Stone, for your editing skills – you fanned the embers and in your wonderful, critical way, set me aflame. I would be remiss to exclude old bones and cancer. Had it not been for the surgery that knocked me off my feet and into bed, where I took pen in hand, ‘What Matters Most’, would not have been born. Thank you, old bones and cancer.
