When you get hit by it, you will know.
Aubrey Tanner is married to her work. With her recent separation from long-time boyfriend and the town's most eligible bachelor, she definitely isn't looking for love. Working in her bakery keeps her busy, feeds her the town gossip, and pays the bills, all that she needs...At least until she finds herself under attack with no way to save herself.
You can't see it, but it takes your breath away. Tate Manning travels where the leads take him, like a tourist town with a bakery full of sugary concoctions, the sweetest of which is the owner. In the right place, he pulls her out of harm's way, allowing him to see through the town's sleepy veneer to the crime running beneath the surface. Worse, Aubrey is unknowingly in the center of it all, and he can't bear another innocent to be lost on his watch.
In that moment, love changes everything. Neither Aubrey nor Tate expects the temptation the other brings nor the complications. Aubrey must choose between the man that held her heart for years or the stranger who saves her from a bad situation. Unfortunately, Tate brings with him secrets and an agenda. How will he choose between his mission of revenge and the woman who chases away the darkness?
