Set in the same world as the Frozen in Time Trilogy, get ready to be swept away by this delicious duet!
All I want is to be free. Free of the memories and hurt. Free of my abusive uncle and corrupt family. Now that my father is gone, all I can think of is escaping and never coming back. My uncle will be furious when he finds out I left—but he’ll have to find me first. Hundreds of miles away, almost out of gas and options, the sign for Pine Ridge calls to me like a beacon of hope. Tucked away in the remote mountains of Montana, it just might be the perfect place to disappear.
After the mission three years that nearly ended my life, all I want is peace and quiet in my sleepy little town. When I find the green-eyed beauty sleeping in her car on the side of the road, I have no choice but to offer her a safe haven. Despite the inexplicable connection between us, I need to stay away—far, far away. Jules is too young, too innocent for a man like me. Everything about her is wrong… but so very right. When someone with a grudge sets their sights on Jules, I’ll do everything in my power to protect her. They say you can’t outrun your past… We’re about to find out just how true that is.
Surrounded by friends and the man I love more than anything, I feel like I’m finally home. When Eric proposes, it seems as though all of my dreams have come true. But my carefully constructed world crumbles beneath my feet when I learn the shocking details of the night my father was killed—and that Eric saw everything. I have no choice but to risk everything and tell him the truth of my past. But danger is closer than either of us expected, and our dreams for the future are ripped away in an instant.
Jules means everything to me. When she’s kidnapped by the man who’s been hunting her for months, I’ll stop at nothing to bring her home safely—even if it means facing my demons and going back to the one place I swore never to step foot in again. As the search for Jules intensifies, a tangled web of betrayal and deceit begins to unravel. Each clue brings me closer to finding her—and revealing a shattering truth that could tear us apart forever…
