My name is Eli Jackson.
Sheriff of Willow Creek and father to the most important girl in my life.
Rumor has it, I’m scorned, bitter, and distrusting.
People can believe what they want.
I don’t have to impress anyone.
Then Zoe Carlisle blows into my town and turns my world upside down.
One look into her troubled eyes and I’m done for.
The more time I spend with her, the more urgent this burning need to protect her becomes.
But once her secret is out, I have to decide if the price for love is one I’m willing to pay.
