I’m about to lose everything.

My home. My name. My future.



I’m about to lose everything.

My home. My name. My future.

My husband was involved in something that could cost us our lives, and on his deathbed, he demands my daughter and I flee Britain.

I had no idea he found her biological father, Holden James, in Rose Canyon, and that’s where we’d start over.

The moment we see each other, feelings I’d long forgotten rush over me. Holden doesn’t hesitate to care for us. We find ourselves reaching for each other, even when we should hold back. His smile warms me, his arms protect me, and against my better judgment, I fall for him. All the possibilities of a future are threatened by a looming past.

I’m being hunted, and it’s just a matter of time before someone finds me guilty of crimes I didn’t commit. Whatever trouble my husband was involved in won’t evade me forever.

I am trying to keep my promise and stay for Holden, but I don’t know how long it’ll be before we have to run.

My name was Sophie Pearson, but I vanished, just like my hope to ever find love again.

“…a wildly engaging and utterly addictive story with a plot that kept me on the edge of my seat and butterflies-in-my-tummy chemistry.” ~Danielle, Red Cheeks Reads

“Dance with me, Sophie.”

Her forehead touches my chest, and we sway a little. “Dancing in the dark is what got us in trouble.”

I chuckle against her ear. “I think it was the bathroom, love. I don’t remember dancing then, but I’ll always remember tonight. When you spilled juice on me and then danced with me barefoot in the puddle.”

I feel her head move side to side. “Holden?”


She pauses, and my heartbeat quickens as her finger moves as if she’s tracing something against my skin. “I like you.”

“That’s good,” I say with a soft laugh.

“I like you more than I feel like I should.”

I like her a hell of a lot more than I should, but I don’t say it. Instead, I turn us a little and rub my thumb along her spine. “I don’t think there’s such a thing.”

Her soft sigh fills the room. “I’m not ready to like you that way.”

She has been through hell, and I don’t doubt that she’s scared, but I would burn the world down before I hurt her. The feelings Sophie has, I share as well.

I like the way she smiles.

I love her voice and the way she gets animated when telling me a story about her life. When I’m at work, I count down the minutes until I can get back.

She gave me more in the last few months than I ever thought possible. She gave me a daughter, but even if Eden didn’t exist, I would gravitate to Sophie.

Her warmth radiates off her, and I crave it.

“Then we’ll dance until you’re ready.”
