I wanted to stay but left to keep her safe, only to return with a world of danger.
I’m a wanderer with no roots and no future.
She’s a nurturer with dreams of a home filled with family.
We never stood a chance.
Or at least that’s what I tell myself.
I left her.
No text or call.
It had to be like that—the only way to keep her safe.
Until danger drags me back into town and my worst fear comes true.
Willow’s life is in the hands of a ruthless bully.
While we race to uncover my family’s deadly secrets and end the threat, her distrust eats at me.
I can’t blame her.
I lied to her, broke her trust, maybe even her heart, though I did it for the right reasons. Determined to do everything in my power to protect her, I’m forced to face a bitter truth.
I don’t deserve her and she may never forgive me, but I can’t walk away.
