I grew up in a small town in Tennessee. It was a farming community where everyone knew everyone – big players and small. In school, everyone knew what family and family type you were from. And when something exciting happened – fabulous or scandalous – everyone heard about it within a matter of hours…and had some kind of comment on the matter.
Everyone in a small town has secrets, but Kate McIntyre’s have followed her home.
Daire Rousseau grew up in Cadence, but has never really felt at home here despite his sprawling family estate and ties to the town’s heavy hitters. His secrets are buried in confidential military files he hopes never to relive again – every night in his dreams is bad enough. Kate is a sexy challenge that distracts him from his demons. Until a new horror is unleashed in their cozy community.
When a student’s admiration for her takes a dark turn, Kate turns to a hometown hero for help and protection. Ex-Green Beret Daire Rousseau knows the face of evil all too well–and he’ll do anything to keep it from this pretty redhead. Can they trust each other to look behind the scars that define them?
Kate McIntyre, college art teacher and sculptor, holds people at a distance. That’s how she copes with her internal and external scars, after a car wreck that left her fighting for her life. Art is her only outlet for sensuality–until Daire returns to Cadence, TN.
She’s shocked by how much she wants the sexy, silent veteran, and crushed when after one drunken embrace, he pushes her away. But when she realizes she has a stalker, Daire is the man she wants at her side.
Daire Rousseau may have been born to wealth, but he grew up a loner, shuffled off to boarding schools after his mother’s death. He joined the Army to prove he was more a man than his father, and found a close-knit band of brothers. But after being captured and tortured by the enemy, he’s fighting a new war–battling to get back to the man he was. And afraid his scars will never let him forget. Convinced his battered body and psyche will repulse an innocent beauty like Kate, he pushes her away. Until the only way to keep her safe is to stay by her side day and night.
