Harper Evans is good at one thing: running. She’s been doing it for so long, she doesn’t know who she is without it.
Until she meets Logan Jackson, her new neighbor and a grizzly of a man. His beard and ink-covered skin might draw her attention, but it’s the way he’s with her son that steals her breath.
She knows she can never have him, but the need to spend time with him is impossible to ignore.
The only thing Logan Jackson ever wanted was a family of his own. His past demands that’s not an option. Until Harper and little Flynn move in next door.
They awaken his buried hope, and the need to fight for this woman and her son becomes his new focus.
What neither of them realizes is there are forces at work hellbent on stopping them from becoming the family they so desperately want to be.
What would you do for the one you love?
I traded my freedom for hers.
But then she betrayed me and left me to rot without so much as a goodbye.
You know how they say you need to forgive and forget?
Well, I can't.
In fact, I'm good with never laying eyes on Kenzie Michaels again.
Unfortunately for me, life has other plans.
So when the woman who ripped my heart out of my chest - and stomped on it for good measure - shows up in my town, I'm left dealing with feelings both old and new.
And a single question that rules my every thought:
Do I give in and fight for the future we were supposed to have?
My name is Eli Jackson.
Sheriff of Willow Creek and father to the most important girl in my life.
Rumor has it, I'm scorned, bitter, and distrusting.
People can believe what they want.
I don't have to impress anyone.
Until Zoe Carlisle blows into my town and turns my world upside down.
One look into her troubled eyes and I'm done for.
The more time I spend with her, the more urgent this burning need to protect her becomes.
But once her secret is out, I have to decide if the price for love is one I'm willing to pay.
