Eloise Ambers has always been a fighter, even at twelve. When she violently loses her parents, she is forced to grow up quickly in order to carve out a life for herself and her cousin Suzanne, eventually finding a stable home and a fulfilling career in Denver. But Eloise still struggles to live an ordinary life while concealing her past from friends and colleagues–a past that presents a very real danger should it catch up to her. On the heels of a bad relationship, Eloise is about to give up all hope for a normal future when two handsome strangers enter her life: One is drop-dead gorgeous and overbearing; the other is kind, protective, and mysterious; and both men are completely out of her comfort zone. Worried about letting anyone into her dangerous, crazy life, Eloise fights hard against her feelings as the past catches up to her–with life-changing consequences. Will she be strong enough to stop fighting and let someone in?
