"Life heats up for Leanna Wilson when an accident claims her parent’s lives. Her dreams of a high profile law career are reduced to rubble when she returns home to assume custody of her sister, Brie. Without the financial means to take legal custody of her sister—or a binding will to place her safely in her arms—Leanna’s future becomes more uncertain than ever. Already prepared for a blazing custody battle, with less than capable relatives, Leanna’s world is set ablaze when her ex-fiancé complicates matters in an attempt to destroy her future and her faith. US Army, SSG Garrison Burke has spent the last few years alone—balancing flag and fatherhood since the tragic death of his wife. Facing deployment, Garrison is desperate to find a safe caretaker for his son, Ezra—preferably anywhere but the abusive home he grew up in. So, when Leanna Wilson walks unexpectedly back into his life, he’s not sure if she’s a blessing or a curse. More importantly, Garrison cannot seem to forget how he betrayed Leanna many years ago. Yet, as Leanna and Garrison begin to run out of time, they start to see that the solution to their problems might lie within each other, but will they forget the past and allow their broken hearts to mend? As sparks begin to fly and their love is rekindled, a marriage of convenience will either make their wildest dreams come true or cause their best-laid plans to go up in smoke."
He twisted her arm tighter and she yelped. “Let me go.”
“You may want to start packing Brie’s bags now.”
“You’re hurting me, William.”
“Now you know what it’s like. To want something and not get it. To love someone who won’t love you back. It hurts, Leanna. You hurt people.”
He was at least partially right. She’d hurt him. Used him to fund her bank account, much like he was now using her to satisfy his need to control. Leanna twisted but couldn’t loosen his hold. He pulled her closer.
“I’d take your hands off her, now.” The voice, familiar, called from the front yard.
William jerked his hands away and spun around. He paused, then let out a small laugh. “Ha. Of course.”
Leanna rubbed at the handprint on her arm, then peeked around William.
A man in uniform, dress blues at that. She sucked in a sharp breath, hand against her mouth.
Garrison. Her lips parted.
William stepped from the porch, hands in the air, and then dropped them to his side. He bumped Garrison’s shoulder as he passed giving a sidelong glance at Leanna before climbing into his car. He winked before driving away.
Garrison followed William down the drive with his stare. He turned his attention back to her.
There he stood, like a ghost. A memory from her past, but he was very much in the present.
