What happens when you meet a man you can’t take home to meet your parents?

— “Eckhart has done it again-she is a masterful author that leaves you begging for more!” Katie Orost

Author Lorhainne Eckhart returns with a brand-new generation of Friessens in an engrossing romance series about family, commitment, hope, and making relationships work. In this Friessen Family novel, an unexpected proposition leaves a young woman tempting fate, pursuing a love that will inevitably end in heartbreak.

She looked him straight in the eyes, those blue eyes that were so intense. She wondered what they’d be able to get her to do. She was smart, level headed, and not lacking in self-confidence. She loved who she was, she had a family who loved her, and yet here she was, sitting here, discussing giving something to a man she would never have considered giving to anyone.

Living on her parents’ ranch in the middle of nowhere, Becky Friessen realizes most people would give anything to be part of her family and have the kind of love her parents have, but she needs more than quiet and stability. She craves excitement, action, a spark of adventure—and she won’t let anyone steer her into something she doesn’t want to do, living in a quiet piece of the world where nothing ever happens.

That is until she meets a man who shocks her with an indecent proposal that she finds herself actually considering. He’s a man she could never tell her parents about, a man she could never take home to meet the family. However, fighting this insane attraction between them could drive her down a one-way road to heartbreak.

— “The Friessens are Back! Well written and powerful, the characters are unforgettable and you won't be able to put the books down” – Patti. B

— “This book is one of the most emotionally provoking books I have read in a long time. Typical of Eckhart's writing, the characters are realistically genuine and heartfelt and the story is non-traditional enough to cause angst for the beloved Friessen family.” aherman

When a young woman searches her dark past for answers, she realizes that some secrets are best left unrevealed.

In this touching Friessen family novel, as Cat searches for answers from a past that still haunts her, she unexpectedly meets a man hired to keep her safe, a man who reaches her in a way no one else has. When a dangerous flirtation ensues, and secrets are revealed, the ultimate cost could be her first love.

Growing up, Cat Friessen didn’t always know who she was. In fact, her earliest memory is of being alone in a silent world, terrified and misunderstood, left like garbage in a Mexican orphanage. The memory haunts her, and it’s one she’s never shared with her parents, Neil and Candy Friessen, who have given her their name, their love, and a surgery that changed her life for the better. Now nineteen, Cat struggles with her sheltered existence and the fact that she doesn’t really fit in. Her identity lies somewhere between deaf and hearing, and even though she now has a life she’s grateful for, she can’t help feeling as if this world belongs to everyone else, as her past continues to follow her like a dark cloud of secrets.

Desperate to find answers, Cat can’t share with anyone what she’s thinking or feeling, but all that changes when she meets Xander Jennings, a man who takes tall, dark, and dangerous to another level. When the house almost burns down one night and Cat sleeps through the alarms, Neil hires Xander to make sure it can never happen again. Only Xander has secrets of his own, ones he doesn’t share with anyone. He sets one strict rule for his jobs: No getting involved with the client. That is until he meets Cat, who leads him into a dangerous flirtation and forces him to choose between doing the job he’s been hired to do or coming clean with her about everything he’s hiding, which could cost him this opportunity for love.

It was the hottest night of sex he’d ever had. Jeremy Friessen had heard the whispers that he was just like his father, with his looks, his bad ass attitude, and arrogance, and he’d never forget the night he’d spent with his best friends sister until she up and left, one day just three years ago.

But now she’s back, he’d caught a glimpse of her at the traffic light again at the store and when her eyes connected with his, she pretended as if she didn’t know him, and that made him angry until he realized she couldn’t hide her reaction to him.

 

But what Jeremy doesn’t know is why she left, whatever her secret is--whatever her reason was for disappearing, Jeremy is determined to find out everything, and when he does he may wish he’d never found her.
