EXCERPT

Set up: Today’s excerpt immediately follows last week’s, “You know we’re going to have to talk about your boy…”

“You can’t say no forever. You owe me.” Michael scraped a finger pad along Brenda’s nose. “I do believe if you’d ever succeeded in getting me in your bed, I would remember it.”

“You know you didn’t―I didn’t”―she scowled―“we didn’t.”

He laughed and backed away. “Well, at least that confirms I don’t have early onset Alzheimer’s. So you’ll join me for a beer after work?”

“Why can’t we just talk here?”

“Because I may want to claim squatter’s rights.”

BLURB

When war hero Michael Jarvis returns to Ashland, Wisconsin, he doesn’t plan to stay—he’s undercover, investigating a possible sex trafficking ring on the Great Lakes. But he does want to sample the pesky girl next door he always turned down—and it wouldn’t hurt if she’d clear up a few mysteries of her own.

Successfully established as an interior house painter, Brenda Tower finally has her act together as a single mom—but it hangs by a thread, a secret she’ll guard with her life. The return of her youthful crush Michael Jarvis threatens to unravel everything.

Jealousy has inflamed Brett Hill’s hatred of Michael and Brenda for as long as he can remember. Revenge will be so sweet.

When the secrets break open, can Michael and Brenda find the courage to trust each other, or will revenge and betrayal triumph?

EXCERPT

Brenda bent over to pick up her sprayer, and Michael had everything he could do not to reach out and clamp his hands around her tight butt. She’d tempted him so many times, but he didn’t think she was intentionally provoking him this time.

Yet she was in his blood. No way could he tell her she was one of the reasons he’d accepted the Ashland assignment. It was memories of her that had kept him going, that had kept him alive in Iraq and Afghanistan.

He placed a hand on her shoulder and gently turned her to face him.

She didn’t resist.

He watched her chew on her lower lip—she wasn’t much calmer about their initial meeting than he’d been. “We’re going to have to talk about your boy.”

Her shoulders slumped.

EXCERPT

“Oh. It’s you,” Brenda said, looking more than a little deflated.

“Thought you might be expecting me.” Michael pushed away from the door frame and entered the room. “Forgot how stinging fresh paint can be to the eyes and lungs.”

She shrugged, placed the sprayer on a work bench, and crossed her arms over her midsection. “Welcome back,” she grunted, regaining her cool. “Ted told me you wanted to buy into the business.” She frowned. “Are you really going to stay in Ashland?”

“Thought I might.”
