How can a man win the heart of a woman when he’s competing with a dead man? That’s the challenge Mark faces when he meets Isabelle, a feisty, capable, redhead who’s happy to deny the truth about why she’s never given love a second chance.
The fact Mark is a cop provides the perfect excuse for Isabelle to push him away. Her husband died in the line of duty—she’s been there, done that, ended up single and alone. She realizes overcoming her heartbreak is the only way she’ll ever be able to love again, but is she ready? When Mark refuses to step out of her life without a fight, Isabelle must decide whether it’s time to move forward or stay stuck in the past.
Healing her heart will take courage and strength, two things Isabelle isn’t sure she has, unless Mark can convince her otherwise.
Even though this novella is Bk 3 in the series as with all my books it can be read as a stand-alone story.
