Jessica Hallstatt became a widow and single mother the night her firefighter husband died in a fiery explosion at an accident scene. While her husband may have died a hero, he left Jessica with deep emotional scars that haven't begun to heal.
When Kayne accepted a transfer to the mountain town of Payson, Arizona, he never expected to meet anyone like Jessica. From the moment he pulled her over for speeding, he was drwan in by her whiskey-colored eyes and sassy dimple. He knows she and her children are a forever type package, and he's vowed never to give anyone the power to destroy him again. Yet fate has other ideas, throwing Kayne and Jessica together in a fight against an unknown enemy to save the life of a child--and hopefully one another.
Officer Nick Astenbeck has loved Sarah for years. Unable to watch her build a life with someone else, he kept his distance after she married his patrol-partner, Seth...allowing Sarah to suffer through an unimaginable hell he should have been able to prevent.
When Seth unexpectedly dies, Sarah believes she's finally free. But with the finances her husband controlled gone, an unplanned baby on the way, and a series of suspicious events, she's forced to ask Nick for help. However Nick's offer of protection comes with something more than Sarah expected. Or wanted. As the threats escalate, placing Sarah and her children's lives on the line, she'll have to find a way to let go of the past and give Nick the trust he deserves if they're to survive, and have a chance at happily ever after.
