Dale Steel has spent his life running from the horror of his past, so he’s completely unprepared for horror to follow him into the present. But that’s exactly what it’s done. His only hope is his love for Ashley White, so he grabs hold with both hands, determined to escape his bleak existence.
Ashley is so in love she can’t see straight. Dale—and the thrall he holds over her—has given her a new outlook on sex and relationships, and she’s all in. Things are finally falling into place.
But Ashley and Dale’s troubles are far from over. An untimely death disrupts their hopes at happiness, followed by a phone call that leaves Dale even more grief-stricken. He must make an important decision. Two roads lie in front of him, but only one will free him.
Praise for Helen Hardt
"Ms. Hardt has a way of writing that makes me forget I'm reading a book. It's more like slipping into a world she created and getting lost for a while." -Tiger Lily, Whipped Cream Reviews
"Flawlessly written, and in my opinion a work of art..." - Girly Girl Book Reviews
"This book was fantastic. It was steamy, funny, romantic, and just about any other emotion you can think of..." –Steamy Book Mama
This is a beautiful love story between two people who weren’t ever supposed to be together. The story moved along and didn’t drag at all... Great read for those who love historical romance, and even if you don’t, I say try this series.
