Life-long friends Beth Carlyle and Nick Hammond haven’t ever pushed the limits of their relationship. But when her boyfriend turns violent and Nick jumps in to protect her, everything changes.

In the chaos following that horrible night, Nick becomes Beth’s anchor as she pulls the pieces of herself together. She never imagined he’d be anything more than her best friend, but with her trust shattered, there’s only one place she feels safe—in his arms. Boundaries crumble and new desires ignite. With her heart a tangled mess, how can she know what’s real?

Nick is willing to do whatever it takes to help Beth recover, no matter the cost to himself, but in the face of undeserved consequences, he may be the one who needs saving. Protecting the man she loves means bringing her nightmare into the light. Will she find the courage to reveal the truth before Nick pays the ultimate price?

About the Author

Suzie O'Connell grew up in Western Washington, but a two week adventure at her stepsister's rustic Mon-tana cabin left a permanent mark, and she has called the mountains and valleys of Southwestern Montana home ever since. She has been writing stories for as long as she can remember, and writes even when she's not writing. Everything around her is story fodder. Her love of writing and of Montana pushed her to pursue (and earn) a Bache-lor of Arts in Literature and Writing from the University of Montana-Western. She now teaches high school Eng-lish.
When she isn't writing or teaching, Suzie enjoys spending time in the mountains with her husband Mark, their daughter Maddie, and their golden retriever Reilly. She is almost as happy with a camera in her hand or help-ing her husband build log furniture as she is writing, and will readily jump on any excuse to enjoy the beauty of Montana.
