For the last nine years, Kaylee Mead has been running from her past. Now she’s running for her life. Her only chance at survival is to return home and patch things up with her father. When she returns to her home in Thief Lake, Minnesota, she finds her father dead and herself becoming the cop’s best suspect for his murder.
Assistant Police Chief Blaine Walker has been trying to put his ex-wife out of his mind for years, but when he finds her hovered over her father’s body, he knows that battle is lost. She becomes his only suspect in a case that doesn’t make sense. He vows to find the answers and then hopefully rekindle the flame that has never quite died out in his heart.
Destiny Baker promised herself, she’d never make the same mistake twice. She’d put her trust in a man once, and she wound up in the Witness Protection Program.
No more boyfriend.
No more dog.
No more heartache.
That is until a pooch by the name of Coop, shows up in her backyard. She could handle the dog, but the dog owner is a different story all together. The last thing Destiny needs is a man, especially one as sexy and charismatic as Assistant Police Cheif Mason Cooper.
For companionship, Mason Cooper trusted one creature: his German Shepard. All women had have done was lie to him. He preferred to keep his free of simple and free of conflict. However, there is nothing simple about his new neighbor and she has a secret. One that he wants nothing to do with. However, when an unknown threat presents itself, he’s duty bound to protect her.
When a deadly secret from her past not only threatens her life, but Mason’s family as well, he takes matters into his own hands and loses his heart.
Even if he saves Destiny, he’ll still have to say good-bye to the only woman in his life who had earned his trust.
