Romance writer Maya Lange is stuck in the small town of Two Forks, Wyoming. It’s not the happily ever after she wanted for herself, but neither was dating a man who runs a criminal enterprise or witnessing a murder. Now she’s in witness protection, with a new name she hates and a permanent mistrust of men. That doesn’t keep the sparks from flying with her neighbor, Josh Madsen, though she suspects he’s hiding secrets of his own. She’s right to be wary. Josh is actually Jace Reed, a former undercover NYPD officer hiding from the mob. Jace knows his beautiful and mysterious new neighbor isn’t who she seems. Is she there to spy on him or to kill him? All he knows for sure is that she’s tempting him to do things he hasn’t thought about in years. How can either of them learn to trust when surrounded by so many secrets?
Former bull rider Ryan McCallister has returned to Two Forks with one goal in mind: to win back his childhood sweetheart, local bakery owner Katie Crawford. Ryan left eight years earlier for all the right reasons, but Katie doesn’t know that. All she knows is that he broke her heart. Can she trust him enough to take a second chance on love?
As Katie befriends Maya, and Jace works with Ryan on his ranch, their lives become entwined in ways none of them ever expected. Will their shattered pasts destroy the hopes any of them might have for a happy future? The truth is hiding in plain sight.
Sitting across from Josh, Maya was overwhelmed by his potent masculinity. When she first walked into the bakery, she didn’t notice him sitting in the corner. Her only goal had been to get a cup of coffee. She was a junky needing a fix, and nothing was going to stop her from getting it. But then she’d turned around and found his arresting blue eyes fixed on her. At that moment, something inside of her shifted, but she didn’t know what it was or why it happened. All she knew was that she’d never been so deeply affected by any man in her life.
And it scared the hell out of her.
She knew all too well the dangers of trusting a man she didn’t know. Doing that had landed her in a town with only one stoplight, for heaven’s sake. “What’s your last name?” she asked as she set her cup on the table.
“Madsen,” Josh said, averting his eyes. Alarm pinged in her chest. He was lying; she was sure of it. Most people didn’t realize it, but they had some sort of a tell when they lied. It could be anything from touching their face to rapid blinking. Another tell was averting their eyes after being asked a question. She’d learned that from her father. Carl Lange was a professional gambler and had taught her how to spot a bluff or a lie when she was a young girl. Only the most accomplished liars could look a person straight in the eyes and lie without giving themselves away. Hugh Alastair had done that. But Josh hadn’t been able to.
So that begged the question. Who was Josh Madsen?
