Meet Richard Hunter, a local doctor in the town of Willow Park. His first met his love interest, Lucy Flint, nine years ago when she was chatting to his, then, girlfriend. They fell madly in love, she’s broken his heart and left town. Now, she’s back and Richard is struggling.
What’s the one thing you’d never tell your lover?
There’s nothing I wouldn’t tell Lucy. There’s been far too much hurt between us as it is. One thing I don’t think she really gets, I mean she gets it, but doesn’t get it, is how deeply the first time I saw her is imprinted on me. It’s like the whole world stopped in that moment, and there was only her.
I never got over her. Never forgot a single thing about her.
What’s one thing your lover or potential lover can do to totally turn you on?
The way she moves like she’s got ZZ Top “Legs” as her personal soundtrack.
Do you rely on your physical prowess or your intelligence to attract a lover? I like being fit, but as a doctor, I value brains over brawn every time.
What’s something you’ve done that could have landed you in prison? Lucy nearly got me tossed in prison a couple of times. Bar fights, that sort of thing. She was wild when she was younger and always dragging me into that shit with her.
Who’s your best buddy? What do you guys do when bromancing? Probably my brother, Josh. He’s an arrogant son of a bitch with his fancy clothes and his slick car, but he’s always got my back. He’s easy to hang out with. Thinks he can beat me at the Iron Man.
Is there a specific body type, hair, or eye color that attracts you? Once I met Lucy, that’s kind of it for me. She had this short, kick ass hair when I met her. It’s long now and sometimes it hides those killer green eyes from me. Blonde, tall and stacked with attitude. And man, those legs. They go on forever.
What do you believe is your most attractive feature? Seriously? Never gave it too much thought. Girls like a doctor, right? My brother Josh, he’s the family pretty boy. You might want to ask him this one. He’s probably got a list.
How do you stay fit? I’m in training for an Iron Man triathlon. That’s a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride and a marathon 26.2-mile, raced in that order and without a break. I’m beginning to wonder what the hell I was thinking.
Name your most comfy article of clothing? My old sweat pants. Nothing better after a workout and a hot shower. I’m not a snappy dresser, as long as it fits and it’s clean. Again, Josh is your best man for this.
A favorite piece of clothing to remove from your lover? Just about anything that hides that kick ass body from me.
If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be? I wouldn’t get married. It thought I loved Ashley, but it was always Lucy for me. And I wish my dad had lived a few years more. He adored Lucy, he would be so proud of the woman she’s become and so happy she’s back.
Thanks Richard! Really enjoyed meeting you. I’ve read yours and Lucy’s story. I love coming home stories and this one is a great read.

Blurb: In this evocative new series from author Sarah Hegger, a woman returns home after a long absence—and wonders if two wrongs really can make a right…
Nine years ago Lucy Flint ran away to Seattle, taking her friend’s boyfriend and leaving her high school sweetheart without a word of explanation. Now she’s back in Willow Park, Illinois, to help care for her ailing father—and it’s no surprise that her ex, Dr. Richard Hunter, is still angry.
Still, she’s a different Lucy now. Sober, wiser, ready to make amends to the long—make that very long—list of those she mistreated during her wild younger days. Falling for Richard all over again would mean wreaking havoc in both their lives and possibly squandering her opportunity for redemption. But here, in the place where everything went wrong, is the one person who always felt right, and a second-chance that could be the best mistake she ever made…

Born British and raised in South Africa, Sarah Hegger suffers from an incurable case of wanderlust. Her match? A hot Canadian engineer, whose marriage proposal she accepted six short weeks after they first met. Together they’ve made homes in seven different cities across three different continents (and back again once or twice). If only it made her multilingual, but the best she can manage is idiosyncratic English, fluent Afrikaans, conversant Russian, pigeon Portuguese, even worse Zulu and enough French to get herself into trouble.
Mimicking her globe-trotting adventures, Sarah’s career path began as a gainfully employed actress, drifted into public relations, settled a moment in advertising, and eventually took root in the fertile soil of her first love, writing. She also moonlights as a wife and mother.She currently lives in Draper, Utah, with her teenage daughters, two Golden Retrievers and aforementioned husband. Part footloose buccaneer, part quixotic observer of life, Sarah’s restless heart is most content when reading or writing books.
She loves to hear from readers and you can find her at any of the places below.
