My son and I are doing just fine, thank you very much. Even though he sometimes cries out for his mother in the middle of the night, he knows I love him more than life itself. I can never replace his mother, but I’m doing the best I can with what I have. Me, on the other hand, I’m as right as rain. I don’t need another woman entering my life, only to rip my heart out when she leaves. I’m used to being alone at night, but I never allow myself to feel lonely. But when SHE showed up, needing my help, and running from a dangerous ex, I had no other choice but to protect her. I think I may regret that decision.
I can’t believe I have to run for my life to a new city. Well, maybe not quite a city. Living in the country on a farm, with horses, and mucking hay was not my idea of a life well-lived. After everything I’ve gone through, I just needed a safe space. Somewhere I could get a good night’s rest. A comfortable place where I didn’t have to look over my shoulder. Clint was a friend of a friend. Someone I could trust to keep me safe until my ex-husband finally got the message. Falling for my handsome protector should be the last thing on my mind, but why can’t I stop dreaming about him… naked… in my bed.
