Justin Morrell cares about only two things in his life: his job at BlackThorpe Security and his sister, Beth, and her family. After a family tragedy a decade earlier forced Justin to leave the military career he'd planned on in order to care for his thirteen-year-old sister, he has taken his role as her guardian seriously. So when bad news comes regarding his niece, Justin is determined to do what he can to fix the problem. Though it seems he can't change the events that are unfolding, he's determined to make sure that the woman that's showed up in Beth's life to help her is really on the up and up. There's just something about Alana Jensen and her son that doesn't add up, and Justin plans to use his resources at BlackThorpe to figure out why that is and then take the steps necessary to protect his family. It's been just over two years since Alana Jensen and her son fled an abusive home in Florida. For the past several months, Alana has been feeling that she and Caden may have finally found their new home. Her passion to help people who are dealing with a child newly diagnosed with hearing loss has brought them into contact with Beth and Daniel Olson and their daughter, Genevieve. Though they must live frugally, Alana finds that for the first time in her life, she feels happy and safe. She isn't keen to let people get close enough to know about her past and the scars she wears, but she finds herself unable to turn away the friendship that Beth and her husband offer to her. Everything would have been fine if Beth's brother hadn't shown up looking an awful lot like her ex and determined to paint her as a threat to his family. Justin's busy work schedule has left little room for a relationship with anyone but his family. That has worked fine until the day he finds that the walls he's kept around his heart have crumbled. Will he be able to make the changes necessary to let more people into his life, or will the job he's devoted his life to come out on top? Alana never planned to allow another man close--particularly one who shared the muscled physique of her ex. But when her son is determined that Justin Morrell is his new hero, she has to decide if she is willing to open herself up again. Will she be able to finally let go of her past and the hurts she's carried for so long and trust that God's will for her life just might include another shot at finding love?
