Strength, at times, comes from odd places in unusual situations; the power of the addict pushing through to recovery, the cry of the mother in want of her child, or the ability to move forward when death rips the hope of a future from your grasp. Lilly Wilt has survived them all and is determined to persist. Her child depends on it.
Drew warned her. He told her she was a fool to chase a child that didn’t exist. The child she sees locked within the tiny shards of memory haunts her. But Drew always had his own agenda. He thought Lilly didn’t notice the panic that surged, briefly, through his eyes when she told him details of the memories. He was wrong. His nasty verbal assaults no longer have an effect and the escalation to violence only strengthens her resolve. Getting away from Drew seems the only option to find her child.
Ty York, Lilly’s twin brother, and most unlikely sheriff of tiny Rock Hollow, Kentucky has vowed to do whatever it takes mend his family and make them whole again. Right now, that means he has to help his prodigal sister escape the nightmare that she has lived with her husband and find her child. Enlisting the help of his best friend, Ben, a decorated FBI agent, they begin to unearth secrets Drew thought would never again see daylight. Backed into a corner, Drew is coming unwound as the body count rises.
Lilly has to allow her brother and Ben into her past or risk her child being lost forever. What they find there could cost them all their lives.
Riddled with guilt and exhausted from the weight of her sins, Lilly does the unthinkable; she falls for Ben. He isn’t backing away and the more of him she sees, the more she wants.
She was warned.
