Welcome to Burton, a small town just west of Savannah where the men are sexy, the women are sassy and happily-ever-afters are a specialty of the house.
When I met Trent Wagner met on a Christmas tree lot in Florida, sparks flew, igniting a fire we both thought would burn for a long time.
The problem with fires is that sometimes people get hurt. In this case, we were both burnt when an impulsive decision resulted in long-term repercussions.
Still, I took a risk and moved to Burton for Trent. Now I’m stuck in a job I’m not sure I like, living with people I don’t know and in love with a man who may not be capable of the forever I crave.
I was dealing with the aftermath of a painful situation in my past when I met Elizabeth. I’m not sure that committing to her is a good idea when everything I touch seems to end badly . . . even though she’s all I ever I wanted.
Being back in Burton isn’t easy. Everyone sees me as a loser, and I know most people are just waiting for me to fail. Again. But this time, I want to prove that I can be a man worthy of a woman like Elizabeth. I can’t stand the idea of letting her down.
When it seems as if hope has died . . . there’s always love.
