Emma Harris is learning that life is just a series of lessons. Lesson #1: Nothing goes the way you plan. Lesson #2: You can’t trust men. Especially not the pretty ones. Lesson #3: Turns out, appearances are almost always deceiving.
Emma thinks she has life all figured out, and what she knows isn’t good. For years, she’s put her big sister, who was born with Down syndrome, first. Now Emma’s ready to start her own life, but fate has other plans. To do the right thing for the sister she loves, Emma’s dreams will just have to wait.
She doesn’t plan on meeting Landon — a rich, flirtatious jock, who never has to wait for anything. Not for attention, not for money, and certainly not for girls. Meeting Emma marks the first time in his life that he’s had to fight for something. And Landon doesn't know how to lose.
Emma has no interest in wasting her summer with a superficial guy like Landon. But very soon she realizes she is wrong about him. The question is, can she trust him? Or will he let her down like every other guy in her life? But most importantly, can Emma trust herself enough to live the life she's always dreamed of?
Life has a way of sneaking in the most important lessons when you aren't looking. And once the heart gets involved, that's when the real learning begins.

Describe your favorite scene to write and why:
My very favorite scene to write is the plot twist, but since I don’t want to give that away to readers, I will describe my second favorite scene to write. This is a scene from Landon’s POV and he is saying goodbye to his friend Trevor at the end of the summer. Trevor has a form of autism that leaves him unable to speak. Writing this scene touched me so much that I cried as I typed. The growth that Landon undergoes after just a few months knowing Emma and Trevor is astounding. This big, hunky, tough, jock really believes he has a friendship with a silent twelve year old boy. He makes plans to stay in touch with Trevor and watches the emotions on Trevor’s face as Trevor processes this. You see, Trevor knows that he is different than other people around him. What we, as the reader, don’t know is whether Trevor knows he is worthy of the same respect and love as everyone else. In this scene, we see Trevor understanding that Landon finds him worthy, and in turn, Landon’s knowledge of the power of one person rocks him to his core. It was a pleasure, in every way, to write this scene.
Laura Ward lives in Maryland with her loud and very loving three children and husband. She married her college sweetheart and is endlessly grateful for the support he has given her through all their years together, and especially toward her goal of writing books. When not changing diapers, driving to lacrosse practice, or checking spelling homework, Laura is writing or reading romance novels.
