Captain Dustin Reed escaped from an understaffed psychiatric hospital. Three years later, he was Justin Rowe, the Crazy-Town mailman—a lovable, eager to please, nerd. He knew his customers: when their bills were late, when their adult-toys arrived, when they went on vacation, and when their cars were parked at the church, while they were at the bar or motel.
He knew them, but they did not know him.
They didn’t know he was an ex-soldier whose untreated PTSD forced him to relive missions. They didn’t know he broke into their homes, touched their things, and invaded their lives.
Cheyenne Taylor was just getting used to her new life in Crazy-Town and welcomed a visit from her sister, Sage, who needed to get away from a bad relationship. But, someone was stalking them. Yet, every time danger got close, Justin was on hand to save the day. Only, he couldn’t explain how he knew so much about them.
With the town under scrutiny, protecting the girls could get him arrested. Not protecting them wasn’t an option.

Desperate times call for desperate measures… And desperate is the only way to describe Kayla Davis’s current situation. Out of work and almost out of money to cover her bills, Kayla finally caves to her roommate’s nagging and follows her to Arrangements, an online dating site that matches pretty young women with older men of a certain tax bracket. Convinced this “make-rent-quick” scheme will surely fail—or saddle her with an 80 year old boyfriend—Kayla is shocked when Michael Bradbury, Internet billionaire and stone-cold salt and pepper fox, offers her a solution to all her financial troubles. It’s hard enough for Kayla to accept his generosity, but what’s a girl to do when the wealthiest man she’s ever met is a dream in and outside of the bedroom?

Olivia lost track of time and had no idea of how long she had sat and cried in the hallway. She had not felt this overwhelmed in years. Again, she thought about finding a therapist to try and work through the darkness in her mind, but once again, she quickly vetoed the idea. She had attempted counseling twice while in college and both times were exercises in futility. In the beginning, with each visit, she felt more positive, more in control. She knew she was moving forward. But sharing the story of her violent beating and physical attack from her mid-teens seemed to undermine her sessions and distract her therapists both times. From that point on they would each focus on the sex and encourage Olivia to be more open and honest about sex. She couldn’t deal with the foolishness. Her problems didn’t not start the day she was beaten and attacked. Her problems began when her father was killed in a car accident–she knew THAT much. After one or two more sessions each time, she withdrew from counseling. The second therapist had made an eerily prophetic comment at their last meeting. “I’m sorry we won’t be continuing, Olivia, but regardless, the root of your anxiety and internal pain will not go away until you force it into the light and confront it.”
Lennie’s chest tightened. He had not called her that since second grade. Sitting her bag at the back door, Lennie walked over and took the swing next to Duncan. They both rocked in the silence until Lenore spoke.
“Most people who go to counseling aren’t mentally ill, Dunc. Life just has a way of dumping too much on us at once.” She touched his hand. “The drowning feeling you mentioned? You’re overwhelmed. It happens to us all at some point during our lives.”
“Have you ever felt like you were drowning, mom?”
“Not drowning so much as… helpless.”
“What’s the difference?”
“Well, don’t take this as clinical or anything, but I knew the problem and I knew the cause. I just couldn’t fix it.”
