About The Season

“A fun, modern take on Pride and Prejudice.”—Jojo Moyes, bestselling author of Me Before You

Film rights optioned by Warner Brothers!

Megan McKnight is a soccer star with Olympic dreams, a history major, an expert at the three Rs of Texas (readin’, ridin’, and ropin’), and she’s not a girly girl.  So when her Southern belle mother secretly enters her as a debutante for the year’s deb season in their hometown of Dallas, she’s furious—and has no idea what she’s in for. 

Megan’s attitude gets her on probation with the mother hen of the debs, and she has only a month to prove she can ballroom dance, display impeccable manners, and curtsey like a proper Texas lady or she’ll get the boot and disgrace her family. The perk of being a debutante, of course, is going to parties, and it’s at one of these lavish affairs where Megan gets swept off her feet by the debonair and down-to-earth Hank Waterhouse.  If only she didn’t have to contend with a backstabbing blonde and her handsome but surly billionaire boyfriend.

Will Megan be able to juggle her soccer dreams and Texas society? Because the season has just begun, and the drama is just getting started.
