After a terrifying encounter with a crazed fan, she goes underground and answers a help-wanted ad in a place the paparazzi would never think to look. Prairie, Kansas.

Cash and Kaycee fall hard and fast for each other, but when their secrets are exposed, will they have the courage to trust each other? And more importantly, themselves?

SHE’S MINE, NO MATTER WHAT.
I broke her heart to save her.
She swore she’d forget me.
She swore that she’d never see me again.
But that was before the old demons in our life tried to take her away.
Before I became the only one who could save her.
I broke her heart all those years ago when I walked away to keep her safe from the monsters in my life.
I didn’t ask for forgiveness.
I didn’t ask for a second chance.
But somehow the two of us found our way back to each other. Back to where it all started.
When I saw her again, I couldn’t hold myself back.
I had to have her.
Own her. Possess her—body and soul.
Make her know who she really belonged to—even if she doesn’t know it yet.
But that was before my enemies put a target on her back.
Before I became the only one who can save her.
But this time I won’t walk away.
This time, I’m keeping what’s mine.
No matter who or what tries to take her from me.
