What Remains True
May 3, 2022
One woman wants to win a bet. One man wants to become a rodeo champion. One little girl may give them both something even better—from USA Today bestselling author Nancy Naigle.
“A commitment-phobic rodeo star and a divorcée with secrets find love in this wholesome romance. . . . As uplifting as it is sweet.”—Publishers Weekly
Working at a little shop on Main Street in a small town is exactly the break that executive Merry Anna Foster needs following her divorce. She’s made a bet with her ex-husband that she can live on the amount of money she’s giving him in alimony. If she can do it, then Kevin will have to stop complaining and leave her alone. But after three months of this new life, will she even want to leave Antler Creek?
Adam Locklear, bull rider and owner of the local feedstore, is having the best year of his rodeo career. He’s also a bit distracted by the pretty new neighbor living in his old bunkhouse. But Adam has no time for matters of the heart. He’s got his future all mapped out, and that future doesn’t involve a woman just yet. It doesn’t involve parenting a little girl either. However, Carly Fowler still suddenly leaves five-year-old Zan—the daughter Adam didn’t know he had—in his care.
Is it possible that the future holds a life even better than what Merry Anna and Adam had each dreamed of? One that includes both tenderness and even love—not just for each other but for Zan too.
WHAT REMAINS TRUE was originally titled Sweater Weather and it was filled with lush autumnal colors and the gorgeous changing leaves in the mountains, carving pumpkins and apple pie. I’d already finished the first draft when my editor said they were moving the release up from fall to spring…so the whole landscape changed along with the title.
My favorite scene in the book is the baking scene with Adam and Merry Anna. I love how he’s the one who has all the kitchen skills, and she’s learning from him.
Adam’s corgi, Shorty, is a nod to one of my favorite bull fighters, Shorty Gorham. I had the opportunity to meet him in Deadwood, SD a few years ago and get a picture with him.
