The lone survivor of her family, Kayla Night yearns for companionship and a sense of belonging. She roams from town to town, looking to fill the void. When she unexpectedly finds the perfect place in Selene's Pass, she settles into a comfortable routine.
That is, until Adam Sharp knocks her off her feet. Literally.
This captivating man helps Kayla open her eyes to a new way of life. Slowly, happiness and hope flourish within her once more.
Little did Kayla know that she had already caught the eye of another man who wanted her all to himself. A man with more than pure intentions.
As strange events unfold, their paths will cross in unlikely ways. Fate will twist everything around, leaving them exposed and hopeless. But hope was never meant to be in this story. Just its shadow.
Jodie Cornett’s heart holds many secrets. She’s never known life without the tragic burden that comes with love. Her world may be surrounded by shadows, but the light of her life is quite certainly the darkest of them all.
"You protect the ones you love." Her mantra carries her through her never-ending struggles—a haggard attempt to cope with, what is destined to be, her life.
When Flynn Taylor, a banker and Jodie’s personal superhero, rescues her, Jodie feels the future isn’t as bleak as she thought…but their son will change everything. Just when you think fate has relented from delivering more misery—think again--for destiny and fate will remind you that you are not in control.
Those who endure and suffer loss will clutch onto anything and all they see as good, even when it’s not the wisest decision...
This is Jodie’s story—from childhood to adulthood—and definitely not for the faint of heart.
