Brianna Reagan's life fell apart when her husband, an Army Ranger, was killed in combat. Now, three years later, she and her young son, Sam, have started a new life in Tide's Way. She's determined to protect herself from more heartache.
But then she meets Sam's Cub Scout leader, tall, sexy Will Cameron. Will takes one look at the gorgeous blonde and decides his hunt for a temporary apartment is over. There's a space available in Brianna's building.
Sam adores Will and has become best pals with Will's nephew, Rick. Brianna quickly learns that Will is a North Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper, excelling on and off the job in activities that challenge him mentally and physically. He relishes living life on the edge: rock-climbing, sky-diving, riding motorcycles, and pushing himself to be the best at whatever he does.
He's putting himself in the line of danger, just as her late husband did. And he's hoping for a promotion that would transfer him to a state-wide task force, meaning he'll say goodbye to her, Sam, and Tide's Way.
As she struggles to remain "just a friend," Will brings tender, patient romance into her life--with the promise of hot passion, when she's ready.
Can she resist? And what happens if her worst fears come true?
