He just wants to erase his past. She can’t seem to escape hers. But facing it might put their future in jeopardy.
The day Jack Stewart walked out of jail, he vowed to keep his conviction a secret. The whole thing was just a terrible mistake, and he did his time. Now he wants a new life in a sleepy town where no one knows his name. Deep Haven is the perfect place to start over as a chef. The last thing the former pararescue jumper wants is to get involved. But when Boone Buckam—the guy he owes for getting him out of the slammer—asks for help, how can he refuse?
Colleen Decker has already escaped evil once—as a teenager, she was kidnapped by a murderer. But she’s put all that behind her as a trauma nurse in Minneapolis. Or maybe not, because a freak mistake in the ER sends her past crashing down on her. She needs a timeout in her hometown of Deep Haven. She doesn’t plan to stay—even when she’s roped into the job of flight nurse for the town’s Crisis Response Team chopper. Colleen’s not sure why she’s drawn to danger, but she’ll be safe enough—after all, she’ll need training, and her teacher is a handsome former pararescue jumper. What could go wrong?
When Jack said he didn’t want to get involved, he especially meant his heart—but being with Colleen feels like a fresh start. He’ll even climb aboard a chopper again, despite his vows. They’re headed for a happy ending…
But secrets never stay buried in a small town. And when disaster strikes one snowy night, they’ll both have to decide if the past will destroy them…or if it just might lead them home.
Cozy up to this perfect Deep Haven drama about discovering a season of second chances.
BOOKS IN THIS SERIES
It was a little thing. Stupid really.
Colleen Decker had already made it through six hours of her ER shift at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis without any problems. Sure, there had been that kid who’d kicked her, but she didn’t blame him—it hurt to have gravel cleaned out of a road rash from a bicycle incident.
And then there’d been the psych patient who thought he was Genghis Khan and ran around the ER shouting about taking over the world before finally being subdued by a few of her larger nurse colleagues.
And don’t even ask about the woman who came in with stage 4 lung cancer.
These patients didn’t faze her. All in a day’s work at HCMC.
No, it had to be something small. Embarrassing.
A flash of a frat boy’s bicep tattoo, the crash of an instrument tray falling to the ground, and suddenly Colleen had jumped for the nearest space she could cram herself into.
Clearly, she hadn’t licked the past. In fact, it had found her in this 12×12-foot storage closet. She curled herself into a smaller ball under the shelf full of cleaning products and rubbed her hands up and down her arms, the scrubs she wore making a swish with each pass.
“Get a grip.” She spoke into the silence. A dim beam of light shone under the door, illuminating a stack of sheets, folded hospital tight. She closed her eyes. Concentrated on her breathing. “You have to go back out there.”
Without warning, the door flew open. Colleen’s head shot up. Julie Brage filled the open space, the light from the outer hallway shining around her.
“I’ve been looking everywhere for you.” Julie crossed the few steps, crouched down, put her hands on Colleen’s knees, and looked into her eyes. “It’s okay to be freaked out.”
“I’m not freaked out.” Maybe if she repeated the mantra often enough, she would believe it. She reached up and adjusted her strawberry-blonde ponytail, pulling the elastic tighter around her hair.
Julie sighed. “Colleen, you have been missing from your unit for fifteen minutes, are sitting in the supply closet next to a wet mop, and you jumped a foot in the air when I came in. That says freaked out.”
“I just didn’t expect anyone to find me here. That’s all. I needed a minute to myself.”
Julie speared her with a look.
Okay. Maybe more like fifteen minutes.
“I’m sorry. I know we’re busy. I’ll come right out and get back to work.” As a nurse on the night shift, Colleen knew the importance of each team member. They couldn’t afford for her to be absent. She stood to her feet. Brushed herself off. Took a deep breath.
