The widow of a lying drug dealer, dulcimer-player Kylie Barstow Richards finds herself struggling to see through the mists of the Smokey Mountains to the truth—about her life, about the nightclub where she works, and about the bluegrass-playing musician who has arrived to steal her heart.
Someone is distributing drugs out of the nightclub Acoustics, and undercover DEA operative Reynolds Navarro has come to Bristol, Tennessee, to find out who. His prime suspect? The beautiful and deceitful dulcimer player Kylie Barstow Richards, whose drug-dealing husband was gunned down and who now has illicit funds feeding into an offshore account in her name. To complete his investigation, Ren must gain her trust and access to her home. What better way than with a kiss?
Kylie hates liars. She has been lied to all her life, and Ren Campbell seems too good to be true. Handsome, sexy and talented, the bluegrass guitar player is everything she’d wished of her first husband. And suddenly he’s her protector, too. But as danger encroaches like the morning mists of the Smokey Mountains, Kylie must soon learn whom she can trust—and whom she can love.
