I have no space or need for it.

I'm perfectly happy with my little girl being the only lady in my life.

Then Zoe Carlisle comes waltzing into my town looking sinfully gorgeous and troubled as hell.

Although my mind warns me that this woman and her secrets will ruin me, my heart is yelling that I need to protect her —no matter what the cost.

I couldn’t remember a time where a woman was so firmly stuck in my mind. I didn’t know whether to laugh or punch something. “Shit!”

“Easy there, I come in peace.”

The instant her sweet voice filled my ears, my eyes flew open. As if she’d just stepped from my thoughts, the blonde stood in front of me, pearly white teeth digging into the plump flesh of her bottom lip.

How was it that I hadn’t even heard her approach? Maybe I am imagining her? Swallowing hard, I blinked a few times to be sure. Instead of vanishing, she inched nearer.

Up close she was even more gorgeous, more radiant. Big, round hazel eyes pulling me deeper and deeper. My gaze swept over her body, the material that clung to her curves giving me just enough of a hint to what lay beneath. My mouth went dry, my fingers twitching to reach out and touch.

Swiveling her head, she looked at the creek behind her, then the trees surrounding us before pinning me with a heated stare again. “Nice view.”

No, the view is spectacular.

She started moving forward, my heart kicked into gear, slamming furiously against my ribs. Why is this woman affecting me like this? When she came to a standstill in front of me, one breath took her scent straight to my lungs. The smell of apples almost as intoxicating as a shot of tequila.

“I’m Zoe.”

My gaze flitted between her eyes and her outstretched arm. If merely looking at her was causing havoc in my body, what would touching her do? Despite myself, I reached forward and took her hand in mine. Lightning could have struck at that very moment and it still would have been rivaled by the electricity zipping through my veins.

By some miracle, I found my voice. “Eli.” If only my brain could offer up more than a single word.

Still holding on to my hand, her lips curved into a seductive smile. “Oh, I know who you are, Sheriff.” Zoe pulled her hand from mine and nodded in the direction of the reception. I could still faintly hear the music and laughter I’d tried to escape. “It was a nice wedding, don’t you think?”

Because my brain wasn’t functioning properly, my “I guess” came out shorter than I’d intended for it to.

Her eyes widened. “You don’t like weddings?”

Shattered (Willow Creek #1)

Amazon US

In life, you always learn one important lesson you’ll never forget.

For me, it was to never have hopes and dreams. They could shatter into a million pieces in a matter of seconds.

I’d lived by that one rule my entire life, until the day Harper and her little boy moved in next door. One look into her guarded eyes and a flame of hope was lit. Little did I know; her green eyes held more pain than my heart did.

Breaking through the fortified walls she’d erected around hers would cause me more agony than I’d ever imagined possible.

I didn’t know if two broken and bruised individuals could come together and create something beautiful out of nothing but shattered pieces.

But I needed to find out.

What would you do for the one you love?


I traded my freedom for hers.

But then she betrayed me and left me to rot without so much as a goodbye.

You know how they say you need to forgive and forget?

Well, I can’t.

I won’t.

In fact, I’m good with never laying eyes on Kenzie Michaels again.

Unfortunately for me, life has other plans.

So when the woman who ripped my heart out of my chest – and stomped on it for good measure – shows up in my town, I’m left dealing with feelings both old and new.

And a single question that rules my every thought:

Do I give in and fight for the future we were supposed to have?
