Forbidden love in a town where danger lurks at every corner.
Emilia Bonacci, introverted daughter of an overbearing jewelry tycoon. For one brief moment, she had it all. Now she's on the run from a family who wants to destroy her.
Small, charming, and picturesque. Harlow, Minnesota, seems like the perfect place to hide. Except a chance encounter throws her into the path of her forbidden first love…
Blaine Callaghan always had dreams of living in a big city, until he made the mistake of falling for Emilia. Her powerful family doomed him to exile in this small town, away from his family and future. Seeing her now unearths years of buried love and resentment. But this earth-shattering attraction is impossible to avoid.
Maybe they could be together this time. Except that anyone involved with Emilia will never be safe.

The abuse that she survived was heartbreaking. How can women be treated like property and be so loving? Great read. Makes me sad that the law and family doesn’t protect victims until something tragic happens.
