Pat Benatar was right: Love is a battlefield. Haley Wood believes that to be true now more than ever. After watching her mother destroy their family, she vowed she’d never be as weak as her father. She’d never let someone else have that power over her heart. Then she fell in love with the guy next door. She almost believed he loved her, too.
Until she overheard the promise he made to his dying mother that she’d see him happily married before she died. How can Haley trust his love for her is real, and not just a ploy to grant his mother her dying wish? Heartbreak is inevitable. She’ll just make sure she’s the one doing the breaking, and not the one being broken.
Will Leonard has finally found someone to spend his life with, but she’s determined not to let him love her. Haley has serious trust issues, but he’ll battle to his last breath for her heart. He has to. Living without this woman isn’t an option. When long-held secrets from both their pasts surface, he’ll have to fight even harder –and dirtier—to win her over.
Can he convince Haley to trust him to love her? Or will she let fear keep Will out of her heart and her life forever?
