IN AN INSTANT SERIES
One instant of passion...a lifetime of regret.
Whit Patterson left the small town of Larkspur, Wyoming—and the tight bonds of his childhood friends, the Sinful Six—when he was accused of causing the horrible accident that left one of their number in a vegetative state. He’d sworn he would never return...until he’s handed one last chance to right the wrongs of the past.
Finley Fitzpatrick is shocked when Whit rides into town—and she’s even more disturbed that the passion they shared hasn’t ebbed in the intervening years. But loving Whit was impossible in the past, and it’s even more futile now. She’s tied to promises made before the accident and her own dreams for a different future. How can she throw all that away for the pleasure to be found in Whit Patterson’s arms?
Especially since he abandoned her once before...
A single glance.
An instant connection.
A lifetime of emotion.
When Kirk Webber walked through the doors of United Liberty Savings into a hostage situation, he had no idea the ordeal wouldn’t end once he was finally released. Instead, he’ll be haunted by the memory of a fellow hostage, a dark-haired woman who’d exchanged glances with him during the heist. The moment their eyes had met, he’d felt a connection beyond anything he’d ever experienced. So when he boards a plane to discover the same woman seated only a few rows away…
He vows to talk to her—actually talk to her—to ensure she’s safe and well.
Mia Papadopoulos has done her best to gather up the scraps of her shattered life, but all her efforts seem futile. In a last-ditch effort, she agrees to fly cross-country to a treatment center specializing in PTSD. But when the journey triggers memories of the torture she suffered at the hands of the Presidential Bandits, she’s sure she’s cracking up. Especially when she looks up to find Kirk Webber coming to her aid.
Kirk had been powerless to help Mia all those months ago, but there’s no way he’ll leave her to struggle on her own now. When Mia crumbles beneath the pressure of a cross-country flight, he convinces her to join him on a road trip through the American West. Soon, the fragile connection born in the bank blossoms into something so much sweeter. But when the past rears its ugly head and old foes threaten to destroy their newfound relationship, they will have to find the courage to put the past behind them.
He’ll stop at nothing to ensure Mia’s future is secure.
