A wounded warrior
After the catastrophic loss of his best friend in battle, Army Ranger Tyson Brooks trades in his fatigues for a badge, moving to Eden’s Ridge, Tennessee to rebuild his life and find a way to live in a world without Garrett. But no amount of protecting and serving the citizens of Stone County is enough to override the guilt that he simply didn’t do enough.
An incurable romantic
Romance author Paisley Parish has spent her whole career chasing the perfect hero and finding all the real life options lacking. Until she runs into her high school sweetheart—the one who left her for the Army. The old spark is definitely still alive, but the man carries far more scars than the boy.
A second chance to save each other
When Paisley becomes the target of malicious harassment, the police have no suspects, no leads, no way to make her feel safe. As her stalker escalates, she turns to the one guy she knows can protect her. Ty’s determined to put a stop to the harassment, even if it means moving in with the woman who’s so much more than the girl he used to love. He just has to remember to guard his own heart in the process.
Paisley is a romance author who believes in love and happy ever afters for others but not for herself. Her first love Ty left her devastated when he decided to pursue his career in the army rather than a life with her and since then she has had two unsuccessful marriages. Two decades later he is back in her life, but she isn’t sure if she is willing to let him back into her heart.
After leaving his military career in the past he has returned home and is now working as a deputy but the aftereffects of the experience and the grief still haunt him. When he reunites with Paisley the chemistry and connection between them is stronger than ever but will it be enough to heal from the past and deal with the threats in the present?
This is an emotional and intriguing story about two people who have always belonged together.
