Secrets have cloaked Renee Dutten’s entire existence. Placed in the New York foster care system as an infant, she was moved from family to family until high school graduation. With a bright future as a hairstylist in a posh salon, fate steps in and pulls the rug out from under her again. An eyewitness to a mob hit, the Federal government becomes her guardian.
From foster care to witness protection, with only a semblance of normalcy in between, she now has a higher degree of madness with a new identity as Chloe Barnard, a new address in Ohio, and nothing familiar to cling to.
The Feds tuck her away in a campground for the summer, with orders for her to maintain a low profile. Chloe’s attempt to be reclusive falls apart right away when she meets Aidan Gerrod. The attraction is powerful and her willpower is weak. Wanting him with every speck of her being puts both of their lives in jeopardy and becomes the biggest struggle of her life.
Former Air Force Master Sergeant and ex-Intel government contractor, Aidan Gerrod is bitter that physical injuries sidelined his military career and an affair with his boss cost him the Intel job. Thinking a campground is the perfect location to regain his balance and find serenity until he figures out where to go and what to do next, he gets just the opposite. His gorgeous neighbor grabs his attention but also stirs a lot of drama.
When trouble from their pasts comes knocking, will they face it together? Or will they be forced to go their separate ways to stay alive?
