All I want is to be free. Free of the memories and hurt. Free of my abusive uncle and corrupt family. Now that my father is gone, all I can think of is escaping and never coming back. My uncle will be furious when he finds out I left—but he'll have to find me first. Hundreds of miles away, almost out of gas and options, the sign for Pine Ridge calls to me like a beacon of hope. Tucked away in the remote mountains of Montana, it just might be the perfect place to disappear.
After the mission three years that nearly ended my life, all I want is peace and quiet in my sleepy little town. When I find the green-eyed beauty sleeping in her car on the side of the road, I have no choice but to offer her a safe haven. Despite the inexplicable connection between us, I need to stay away—far, far away. Jules is too young, too innocent for a man like me. Everything about her is wrong… but so very right. When someone with a grudge sets their sights on Jules, I'll do everything in my power to protect her. They say you can't outrun your past… We're about to find out just how true that is.
