Ben Davenport isn’t a man accustomed to running away, but relocating to Tallulah Cove to open a second branch of his business provides a good way to escape his haunted past and lingering ghosts of his decades-old mistake all under the guise of good business. No longer believing in his own happily ever after, he’s surprised by a chance encounter with a pretty brunette and the yearning she awakens with the delivery of the single most intriguing line ever. Opposites may attract, but it doesn’t mean they’re bound for forever. Still, she’s intrigued him just enough to upgrade them to intimate strangers and see what happens next.
Their growing attraction seems unstoppable, until the past revisits like a sucker punch ready to take at aim at their happiness, clip their wings of freedom from their tortured pasts, and send them retreating into the familiarity of their painful memories.
About the author
USA Today Bestselling author Casey Hagen pens her snarky, passionate stories from the salty air of Kennebunk, Maine. She’s a born and raised Vermont native, a New England girl to the core, with Ben & Jerry’s in her heart and real Vermont maple syrup pumping through her veins.
She’s the proud mother of three girls and a new, first-time grandma with an insatiable addiction to Fall Out Boy, and a new, rather concerning obsession with tattoos and piercings. Can you say “cool grandma?”
The inked and pierced grandma spends her time tucked away in her office, coated in cat hair, alternating between tearing her hair out trying to find the perfect words and being one step ahead of her three scheming fur babies she is positive are plotting her demise with every swirl around her ankles at the top of her office stairs.
She loves writing stories about real people, with complicated histories, relatable everyday problems, and giving them the hard-won happily-ever-afters they deserve.
And she thanks every last one of you who picks up one of her stories.
Casey is done talking about herself in the third person.
