She was beyond his reach…until she turned up on his doorstep.
Wade Abbott is one and done—one look, one conversation, one weekend, and he knows who he wants. Except, Mia Simpson is not free to return his affection. In fact, he suspects she's in an abusive marriage, but she never confirms that, and he has no choice but to mind his own business where she’s concerned. Two years after they first met and a year after he last heard from her, Mia shows up half-frozen, bruised and beaten on his doorstep, needing something only Wade can provide. <br><br>Mia has never forgotten the kind, gentle, sexy guy who made her heart sing from the first time she met him. She only cut off contact with him because she feared for his safety—and hers—and takes the first opportunity she gets to make a run for what she really wants—Wade. But nothing is ever as simple as happily ever after. With issues from her past still haunting them, and Wade's family questioning the motives of a woman they’ve never met, Wade and Mia will have to fight for their happy ending. <br><br>Wade Abbott’s long-awaited story is finally here, along with an update on the Abbott and Coleman clan as well as Fred the moose! <br><br><b>Reading Order for Green Mountain/Butler, Vermont Series <br>Green Mountain Series </b><br>Book 1: All You Need Is Love (Will & Cameron) <br>Book 2: I Want to Hold Your Hand (Hannah & Nolan) <br>Book 3: I Saw Her Standing There (Colton & Lucy) <br>Book 4: And I Love Her (Hunter & Megan) <br>Novella: You’ll Be Mine (Will & Cameron’s Wedding) <br>Book 5: It's Only Love (Ella & Gavin) <br>Book 6: Ain’t She Sweet (Charley & Tyler) <br><br><b>Butler, Vermont Series </b><br>Book 1: Every Little Thing (Grayson & Emma) <br>Book 2: Can't Buy Me Love (Patrick & Mary) <br>Book 3: Here Comes the Sun (Wade & Mia) <br>Book 4: Till There Was You (Lucas & Danielle)

The story breaks as Metro PD lieutenant Sam Holland attends a dinner party with her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano: President Nelson is accused of having an affair. More shocking still, campaign staffer Tara Weber claims the president fathered her newborn son—while the First Lady was undergoing secret cancer treatment.
When a high-profile murder case hits Sam’s desk, she’s shocked to uncover a connection to the presidential scandal. With the department caught up in its own internal scandals, and the chief’s job hanging by a thread, Sam questions who she can trust as her team uncovers information that clouds an already-murky case. And with calls for the president to resign getting louder by the minute, Sam needs to close this case before she finds herself living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue…
Colton Abbott and Lucy Mulvaney have a secret. Colton’s nosy siblings have begun to put the pieces together, but it’s not like Lucy to keep things from those closest to her—especially her best friend, Cameron, who recently moved to Vermont to live with her true love, Will. But Lucy isn’t about to tell Cam she’s having a fling…with Will’s brother.
Flitting between New York and Vermont is exhausting, so Lucy is looking forward to a long weekend with Colton at the Abbott family lake house in Burlington. Too bad Will and Cameron have the same idea, and once Colton and Lucy are caught red-handed (and red-faced), will their clandestine romance lose its appeal or will their secret beginnings be the start of something lasting?
Includes a bonus Green Mountain short story!
