SYNOPSIS

There were two brothers—identical twins—and though I loved them both, my soul belonged to only one.

Annalia Del Valle has loved Preston Sawyer all her life. The daughter of an impoverished migrant farmworker, she grew up as an outcast in what was no more than a tiny, cooped up shack in California’s Central Valley. But her heart found freedom in the land, in the wide-open spaces of Sawyer Farm, and in the boys who were her only friends.

Preston has yearned for Annalia since he was a boy. But a sense of honor kept him from pursuing her until he’s unable to hold back any longer and their worlds—and bodies—collide one hot summer night. A night that sets off a chain of events that will alter their lives forever.

Now Annalia is back in town after disappearing without a trace for six long months. Determined to reclaim her heart, her life, and the baby she left behind—the son who was created in a moment of lust and love and pent-up yearning.

Preston has survived grief, a ravaging drought, and the despair of heartache, but he’s not sure he can survive Annalia again. And he might be unwilling to try. Will pride and bitterness keep him from the one thing he’s always longed for?

How do you heal what is irreparably broken? How do you forgive that which is unforgivable? How do you discover that real honor comes not from circumstance, but from the place deep in our hearts where truth resides? And how do you move beyond the wounds of the past to discover that some loves are as solid as the ground beneath your feet, and as enduring as the earth itself?

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY GEMINI. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

I saw an amazing, strong woman, who had the courage to come back to me. I saw my love, my heart, my home.

PRESTON’s HONOR is a story in which the moral is that if you keep your true feelings hidden and never give voice to your passion, you may end up losing the one thing that matters the most. And if you’re lucky, sometimes you get a second chance to fix mistakes made in the past.

Annalia, Preston, and Cole have been best friends since early childhood. Preston and Cole are twin brothers who lived on the farm where Lia’s immigrant mother used to work on. Lia and her mother lived in a tiny one-room shack that is located just on the outskirts of the Sawyer’s farm. Although Lia is a few years younger the two brothers took to the pretty girl almost instantly. Preston and Lia had always harbored secret crushes on each other. They were so good at hiding their true feelings from each other and to everyone else that you can almost guess what eventually happens. Years later when they are teenagers, the wrong brother ends up making a move on Lia. Preston and Lia will waste years pining over their unrequited love and making false assumptions about one another.

When Preston and Lia finally come clean with each other their passion is nothing short of explosive but soon tragedy nearly tears them apart. Feeling lost and bewildered after months of being practically ignored by Preston, Lia leaves town in hopes of finding the person inside of her that she’s always kept hidden and when she finds that inner peace, she tries to go back to the family she left behind.

Will Preston be able to forgive Lia for leaving? Can they move on from painful memories of the past and build a promising future for their little family?

Those of you who avoid love triangles, I would advise you to give this one a chance because ultimately this was a story about three friends who loved and looked out for each other no matter what adversities they faced.

PRESTON’s HONOR releases on February 19th!
