On the run from her violent ex-husband, Cassie Reeves will do anything to keep her son safe; even if it means resorting to a man she betrayed a decade ago. John Tyler now hates her as much as he once loved her—but Cassie has no choice.

John’s quiet life as a small town doctor in Seaclusion, Washington has no place for the woman he turned his back on ten years ago. But when Cassie and her son arrive on his doorstep, he can’t turn them away. The longer she stays, though, the harder he finds remembering why he stopped loving her.

With her ex-husband closing in, Cassie soon realizes that only she can end what he has started. As John and Cassie’s mutual attraction reignites, she vows to do anything to protect her son and the possibility for happiness that escaped her for so long.


Tears filled her eyes. Why was he doing this to her? Why prolong this? Why make her go through this terror? But she knew the answer. Precisely that. To scare the living daylights out of her. To prolong his control over her, to make her rue the day she’d ever met him. And fuck if he hadn’t succeeded in doing just that.
The slimy little bastard.
Cassie grabbed the door handle and flung it open. She refused to fall into the pathetic mass of nerves Marcus expected out of her. She refused to let a little rain and shadows make her become the weak victim Marcus thought she was. This was the same place that she, Luke, John, and Tim had explored in dazzling sunlight. It was the same place. There was nothing different, other than a little rain, and gloomy afternoon shadows setting in.
And Marcus Leary at the end of the path. At least she knew it. It wasn’t a surprise. And neither was the setting Marcus picked.
Cassie looked around. Why did she always assume Marcus knew her so well? Didn’t she know Marcus just as well? Didn’t she? Wasn’t her coming here as she had just as predictable as his sneaking into the house to scare her? To set up theatrics and smoke screens to play mind games with her? The weasel thought he could win because she’d be scared and shaken and beaten down to his will. Just as every other time with him.
Not this time however.

“This was a great story that really read true-to-life – a woman attempts to stay one step ahead of the psychotic ex that is stalking her and her son….This story took me all over the place. There was, of course, romance but there was also suspense and a bit of action and some humor.”
