Dirty Dancing at Devil's Leap
Avon/HarperCollins

She was a naive country girl. He was a billionaire's spoiled son. He was her first crush, her first heartbreak...and now her sworn enemy.

As Avalon Harwood's fortunes soared, Maximilian “Mac” Coltrane's plummeted, and he had to fight his way back to where they both began: Hellcat Canyon. Now Mac and Avalon will play dirty—in more ways than one--to get what they each want: the glorious old abandoned Coltrane mansion. But when Avalon snaps the house up at auction, she discovers there's something awfully familiar about the extremely hot caretaker...

Mac might have a heart of stone, and the abs to match, but Avalon—the dazzling girl whose heart was always too big and too reckless for her own good—was always his Kryptonite. And just like that, the stakes change: suddenly they're fighting not just for a house, but for a magic they tasted only once before and never since—long ago, with each other, at Devil's Leap. .

A STARRED review from Kirkus:

"Historical favorite Long's (Hot in Hellcat Canyon, 2016, etc.) second foray into contemporary romance is a study in longing and angst, with Eli and Glory awash in emotional confusion yet so perfectly attuned to each other that there's no question they'll figure it out, despite the taut conflict. The journey, however, is exquisite, combining humor and intensity with consummate writing and storytelling and a musical leitmotif that ratchets up the sexual tension as effectively as Bolero. A splendid, delectable romance."


A STARRED review from Publishers Weekly:

"Long’s second foray into contemporary romance (after Hot in Hellcat Canyon) continues to impress with sparkling prose, witty scenes of small-town California, and meaningful romantic conflict. "
