A guilt-drive firefighter, a widowed mother, neither is ready for love, but love has other plans. 

Firefighter Lucas Bennett had the carefree life he’d always wanted until a deadly blaze took the life of his company mate and best friend. Blaming himself was easy but pulling himself from the tailspin of guilt proved to be much harder. The fog of sadness and guilt pushed him down a dangerous path until he nearly died fighting the beast. Forced to stop and reevaluate his life, he decided to make a change before it was too late. 

A fire took almost everything from Sarah Robinson—her husband and her home—leaving her to raise their precious daughter alone. Everywhere she looked holds memories of her husband, pouring salt on her ever-present wound. Unable to live any longer around the memories of her husband, she and her daughter moved to Oak Grove, far away from the grief of the past. All Sarah needed was the chance to start a new life for her and her daughter. 

 A car accident on a dark, rainy night put Lucas and Sarah on a collision course neither of them expected… with questions they’re not ready to answer. Can a single mother open her broken heart for a second chance at love? Will a broken firefighter risk his heart for what might be his only chance at forever? Are each of them willing to take one last risk to be together? 

His risk. Her reward. Together, they’ll mend each other's broken hearts. If you like small-town romance where the heroes are sexy and the women are strong, unlock One Last Risk to start your visit to Oak Grove, Pennsylvania and fall in love with Lucas and Sarah!

A sophisticated city girl, a small town guy. Will their differences drive them apart or will they discover that home is where the heart is?When the only girl Joey Bennett ever loved stole his heart and sped off to the city lights, he swore he'd never again surrender his heart or be measured by someone's big city ideals. Love is for chumps. Trust is only given to family and locals who care about him for who he is, and what he isn't. But when a beautiful stranger dances into his bar, he takes up the challenge to prove that his hometown is different.

Brittany Carlson hates small towns after growing up where the old boy's network turned a blind eye to her father's abuse, destroying her mother's life... and her own. She left that hell in the rear-view mirror the minute she turned eighteen. New York City is her new hometown where her neighbors are friends and everyone looks out for each other. They keep her safe. But a weekend visit to Oak Grove and one dance with a sexy local threatens to change... everything. 

Joey is not like any guy she's ever met. And she likes that. Long nights stoke Joey and Brittany's desire to stay together, but reality is different when exposed to the harsh light of day. If Brittany goes back to New York, she'll be heartbroken. But she promised herself long ago that she wouldn't ever again live her life looking over her shoulder, wondering what secrets people are hiding and what ugliness lurks in the shadows with no one there to help. 

Can she take the small town out of Joey, or can the love of a good man become her new home?
