Losing the only woman who’d ever nicked my defenses hurt. Life rolled the dice, and we lost. For now. I’d do whatever was necessary to get her back.
Marie left to protect me. Because she was that true.
I set out to conquer the past, which was holding her hostage.
Marie and her son had become the ray of light in my life. I’d be damned if I let someone snuff out that light.
The more time I spent with her, the more I knew she held my heart in her hands. There were never enough nights with her, not when she owned me heart, body & soul, and I intended to do the same with her.
A ghost from her past was playing games with her life, with her safety. I stared it down, determined to protect her, to make her safe once and for all.
