Herkness set her book in the fictional town of Sanctuary, W.Va. It tells the story of a big-city girl who returns to her country roots to make a fresh start, with the help of a wounded racehorse and an emotionally scarred but irresistible veterinarian.
"Take Me Home" was published by Amazon's imprint, Montlake Romance, in November.
