About

Overview

A New York Times Bestselling Author

Samantha Casey is a school librarian who loves her job, the kids, and her school family with passion and joy for living. Duncan Carpenter is the new school principal who lives by rules and regulations. Sam worked with Duncan at another school. Back then, she loved him — but she was invisible. Now the lovable Duncan she’d known is a suit-and-tie wearing, rule-enforcing tough guy so hell-bent on protecting the school that he’s willing to destroy it. As the school community spirals into chaos, and danger looms, Sam and Duncan must find their way to who they really are, what it means to be brave, and how to take a chance on love — which is the riskiest move of all.
