I'm a firm believer in happily ever afters. So when my sister died, leaving behind a daughter, I swallowed my grief, dumped my boyfriend, and caught the first plane to Idaho.
I wasn't prepared to meet my niece, let alone be a single parent.
But that didn't stop me.
I never expected to have the romp of my life with a grumpy stranger on my first night in Whisper Springs.
But I threw caution to the wind.
Imagine my surprise when that brooding bad-boy turned out to be my niece's savior.
And my heartbreak when I discovered the man we'd both fallen for was a dangerous criminal.
Happy endings never come easy. But don't worry; I'm a fighter. And sometimes, our scariest challenges become the most extraordinary adventures.
Whisper Springs belonged in my rearview, and I had long since put my past to rest. Then she came along, a tiny captive who captured my heart.
My hometown was the only safe place to take the broken child. I didn't belong, wasn't wanted, and had no intention of sticking around. Until her aunt barreled into town, all beauty, bravery, and fighting spirit.
Moriah challenged me, riled me, and fell into me time and time again. And hell, I liked catching that live wire.
Those girls believed me a hero.
Little did they know, I'd always been the bad guy.
