When Avery’s high school sweetheart is assigned to protect her from a killer, will she decide their love is worth a second chance?
The first heartbreak cuts the deepest. Dr. Avery Brown learned that lesson the hard way, but she’s not the same naïve, disillusioned girl she used to be. She’s older, wiser, and too busy revolutionizing forensic science to indulge in ‘what ifs’.
Sergeant Gareth Wayland never got over his first love. When her laboratory is vandalized and her house is burned to the ground, he’s determined to protect her. If only he could stop being distracted by her rare smile and nimble mind.
With every passing day, the lingering attraction becomes harder to resist, and the memories of the past reawaken long dormant emotions. But can Avery trust Gareth—and love—enough to risk her heart for the second time?
He’s big-city successful. She’s small-town sweet. But thanks to one reckless night of passion, these opposites are about to become family.
With her professional reputation in tatters, journalist Aria Simons needs to get back on track. A promotion at her local paper is just the way to do it. She can’t afford distractions—especially not handsome ones like Eli Lockwood. But his plans for a development in her idyllic hometown might be exactly the scoop she’s seeking.
Eli never expected to end up stuck in a tiny lakeside town in the middle of nowhere with his rebellious teen sister. Unfortunately, the only person who can connect with the girl is a reporter looking for an exclusive. They strike a deal, but it doesn’t take long before he can’t get the vivacious woman out of his mind.
When one hot night at the beach has lasting consequences, will Aria fight for her ready-made family, or will Eli’s empty childhood make him shut her out…for her own good?
Liam Braddock has golden hair, a mischievous smile, and a way of making me feel like he really sees me. And likes what he sees.
We know it isn’t smart to fall for each other. Not when his life is here, and I’ll be returning home before long. But we both know hearts don’t deal in logic.
Then tragedy strikes, and I’m forced to make a choice that might send my dreams for a perfect future up in smoke…
Author’s note: This is a short story with a cliffhanger. It is the prequel to Come Back to Me, the first book in the Destiny Falls series by Alexa Rivers.
Returning to the small town where I’d spent the happiest year of my life had seemed like a great idea once the last of my younger siblings had left the nest. I’d put aside my own happiness for long enough. It was time to do something for me.
But Destiny Falls isn’t the same welcoming place I remember. The tight-knit community has rallied around Liam Braddock. They seem to think the broody firefighter needs protection… from me.
As for the man himself? He’s convinced I abandoned him for fame and fortune. He doesn’t know about the impossible decision I had to make, or the nights I cried myself to sleep wishing he was there.
I lost him once, but this time, I’m not giving up on us. I’ll do whatever it takes to prove we belong together.
The problem is, I’m not the only interloper in town. Someone seems to have it out for me, and if I’m not careful, the sparks firing between Liam and I will be short-lived…and so will we.
