About the Book
Title: My Heart, My Home
Author: Jessa Chase
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Kate Jacobson took the first bus out of Madelia, Washington the day she graduated high school, and she hasn't looked back. With a blossoming medical career at a busy New York hospital, she has found her calling. But when her best friend is gunned down in front of her by a drug-addled patient, Kate turns back to her small town roots, looking for stability and a place to belong.
Logan McAllister has worked his entire adult life to make the people of Madelia see him as more than the kid from the wrong side of the train tracks. He's built a business with his own two hands, revitalizing the historic landmark homes in town to their former glories. He grew up with parents so completely infatuated with each other, he can't imagine wanting to jump into the suffocating arms of love himself. But when his high school crush Kate comes back to town, he can't help but fan the fires and reignite their old flame.
But not everyone is happy about her return . . .
When Kate's clinic is vandalized, the two set aside the differences stemming from their pasts and set out to find and stop the vandal. As they work to solve one problem, their undeniable feelings for one another present another problem that's even more dangerous-at least for her heart.
Kate can handle the crazy politics. What she can't handle is smart, sexy, reformed bad boy Logan, who keeps showing up on her doorstep, determined to kiss the living daylights out of her.
Logan was wrong for her when she was eighteen, is he even more wrong for her now?

Interrupting her darker thoughts, Samantha bustled into her office with an armful of paperwork and two overflowing cups of steaming coffee. She smiled brighter than anyone had a right to be smiling at 7 in the morning.
“Hi! Doctor Jacobson! How’s the morning treating you?”
Kate rubbed her temples but smiled back. “Not much treating going on here, sad to say.”
“Don’t worry about it, Doc. Just give them a little more time, they’ll turn around and start coming in to see you. People ‘round here, they really liked old Doc Peterson, and they’re, well let’s just say they grow ‘em pretty stubborn in these parts.”
“I remember,” Kate said.
“Oh, right! I forget you grew up around here, didn’t you? Me, I followed a sweet boy home from a summer festival. We got married, stuck around here. But I love it, feel like I been here my whole life.”
“And I’m glad to have you here. Do you really do all the front desk and back office stuff just by yourself?”
“And the accounting and the cleaning, most days. Had some help here, but when Doc passed on, they didn’t figure the clinic would keep going so they moved on. But the mayor, she told me she would find us somebody so I kept everything up the way it should be.”
“Well, first step I’d say is to try to get people in here,” Kate said with a sigh, “And then we can get you some help. No reason you should be doing all of it yourself.”
“Agreed,” Samantha replied with a mile long grin. “I won’t say I’m too old for it, because you’re never too old for something until you are dead, but damned if I’m not as young as I used to be.”
Samantha sat in the chair on the opposite side of Kate’s desk and pushed one cup of coffee toward Kate while she sipped from her own.
“Well, I’m not sure if it’s your kind of thing but a few ladies in town have these parties,” Samantha started, keeping her eyes trained on her own cup. “If you wanted to come, it might go a long ways toward getting people to trust you and come see you.”
Kate smiled. “That’s a thought, I might just take you up on that. Is it like a tea party?”
Samantha guffawed loudly, nearly knocking her own cup over in the process. “Oh, I’ll have to tell them you said that, you’ll make everybody’s with that one. As far as our husbands are concerned, it’s a hen party with tea and crumpets and lots of silly girly conversations.”
“I’m not understanding, Samantha.”
“Look up ‘Sinful Pleasures’ online real quick, that’ll explain everything just as easy as I could.”
Kate unearthed her keyboard from under the mountain of papers and typed in the appropriate search term. The pictures that popped up almost instantly were anything but appropriate. Lotions and creams with names like Slutty Favors and Deep Throat Magic, along with neon pink vibrators and couples’ bondage gear. Kate felt herself blushing intensely.
“Oh! There it is!” Samantha chuckled. “I knew I was right to invite you, we need more blushers at the party.”
