Widow Sarah Johnson struggled to pick up the pieces after her life was ripped apart. After two years of grieving, she's found contentment in her thriving business as photographer to Hollywood's A-list and in raising her angel-faced daughter, Kylee... until bodyguard and long-time friend Ethan Cooke changes everything with a searing moonlight kiss.

Sarah's world turns upside down as she struggles with her unexpected attraction to Ethan and the guilt of betraying her husband's memory. But when blue roses and disturbing notes start appearing on her doorstep, she has no choice but to lean on Ethan as he fights to save her from a stalker that won't stop until he has what he prizes most.


Sarah had feared this day would never come for her friend. After Jake’s death, Hunter had closed himself off to happiness, blaming himself for something that had never been his fault. A month on duty in the mountains of Yellowstone protecting Morgan had taken care of that. He’d lost his heart while they’d dodged gunfire and run from corrupt government officials. Now, in less than twenty-four hours, Morgan and Hunter would be married.

“Are we finished here?” Hunter said as he set Morgan down.

“Yes, the torture is officially over,” Sarah said, smiling.

Morgan enveloped her in a hug. “We really do appreciate you doing this for us.”

Sarah hugged her back. “I’m happy to.”

Hunter moved in, giving Sarah a quick kiss on the forehead. “Yes, we do. Thank you.”

“You’re welcome.”

Morgan glanced at her watch. “We’re cutting it a little close. We need to get home and change before we head over to the resort. Do you want to ride with us, Sarah?”

“No, I still have to pack a few of Kylee’s things and make sure Hailey can join us tomorrow. Are you sure you want us staying with you tonight? You need a good night’s sleep.”

“Of course I do. Hunter will be with Ethan. I want my Matron of Honor and flower girl with me.”

“Then we’ll be there.” Sarah shouldered her camera bag, and they made their way to their cars. She unlocked her blue sedan and got in. “I’ll see you in a bit.”

  7. What is the hardest thing about writing?

    1. Hi Mai! The hardest part for me is finding the quiet time to get "in to my zone" where I feel as though I am in the characters minds. With two grown boys, two Saint Bernards, and an active husband... let's just say it isn't very quiet around here! I wouldn't have it any other way.

  8. Enjoyed the excert, sounds really good. Entering under the name of Virginia
