Sarah's world turns upside down as she struggles with her unexpected attraction to Ethan and the guilt of betraying her husband's memory. But when blue roses and disturbing notes start appearing on her doorstep, she has no choice but to lean on Ethan as he fights to save her from a stalker that won't stop until he has what he prizes most.
Enjoy an exclusive excerpt:
“Shh, shh, shh, it’s okay, kid. I’m trying my best here. You’re all right.” He moved the wipes over the baby’s bottom. “This stuff’s like cement. Man, I’d rather be in an alley with three UZIs pointed at my head.” With Kylee’s tiny baby butt clean, he clumsily placed the new diaper under her and swore again when he realized the tapes faced her stomach. Her legs moved about in her outrage, making it hard to flip the diaper around. “You’re not exactly helping me out, kiddo.” He adjusted the diaper and fastened the tapes.
“There.” He buttoned the onesie, muttering a curse when he mismatched the snaps. “Screw the pink outfit. This will have to do. You’re worked up. I’m worked up.” He placed his hand under Kylee’s neck and head, scooping her bottom up with the other, like he’d seen Sarah do earlier. Kylee’s cheek rested against his heart, and her cries turned to whimpers, then stopped altogether.
“There you go, sweetheart. That was pretty awful, huh? I don’t know about you, but I think I’m going to have nightmares for weeks.” He walked to the rocking chair with Kylee and sat down, sliding his palm along the peach fuzz on her head as he moved the chair back and forth. “I think I was about to cry myself, but let’s keep that between us, okay?”
“Here you are.” Sarah peeked in the room with her mass of blonde hair twisted up in a towel on top of her head. Her face was left unframed, showcasing big, exotic eyes, high cheekbones, and a lush Cupid’s bow mouth that smiled until she zeroed in on the mess on the changing table. “I see Kylee needed a change.”
“Don’t even ask. It was exhausting and traumatic for both of us.”
