The connection we share has always been bigger than both of us.
As a girl, I craved Ryder Evans. My every desire was about him. My every fantasy revolved around him. In his eyes, I was a teenager, a daddy’s girl. Way too young. I vowed that when I grew up, I’d make Ryder see me as a woman. But fate cruelly took him from me. Now I’ve lost my father, too. While performing my final solemn duty to him, I crashed during a blinding blizzard. I expected to join Daddy in the afterlife. Instead, I woke to find my rescuer—a burly, bearded mountain man who ignites me as only Ryder ever did.
Four years ago, I left cage fighting and civilization because I had too much blood on my hands and too much darkness in my soul to risk destroying the only female I ever loved. If I hadn’t, Katiana would have guessed how badly I ached to steal her innocence and make her mine, though it was forbidden. Now that’s she’s crashed into my life again—and all grown up—can I convince her heart to take one last chance on me?

This was quite an emotional, and hot, short story about unrequited love, and what some will do to protect the ones they love. I completely loved this story!! Ryder, the big mountain man, hiding from his past, once again saving Katiana. Only now, secrets will be revealed, feelings will be expressed, and lives will be changed. And you’ll love it!! ❤️
