I can’t escape the past no matter how fast or how far I run. 

I’m broken and damaged, and nothing will change that.

Not after my husband died overseas and I was left alone.

All I can do is keep moving forward. 

But what I don’t expect is one cop in particular to get under my skin.

Making me want something more.

He hates me. 

Everywhere I turn, he’s there, watching me.

Waiting for me to screw up. 


I’m not going to give up, though.

Not when I finally found something that makes me happy.

I know how short life can be and I’m not backing down.

Remy Townsend doesn’t stand a chance once I make up my mind.

After all, we grew up together. 

And I know every button to press to get what I want.


One drunken promise is going to ruin my life. 

I told him I’d watch out for his wife if he died.

The task was easy enough when I was overseas.

All I had to do was send a letter, or make a phone call.

But coming home and seeing her will be my undoing. 

She’s everywhere I go.

Everywhere I turn.

Now, I can’t take my eyes off her even when I want to.

Keeping her safe means I have to stay away.

Because the thoughts going through my head ...

Well they’re enough to send me straight to hell. 

Parker Hayes is quickly invading every aspect of my life.

One drunken promise… That’s what it always circles back to. 

I’ve been trained to go balls to the wall with every mission.

Never back down. Never surrender. Never walk away.

Even if what we have becomes collateral damage.
