Some secrets are too dangerous to keep.
After ten years in the big city, Cassie Holt is back in Fairfield Corners. She may look like the same girl who left home a decade before but she’s hiding a dark truth from everyone. When her life is threatened by the demons of her past, her best friend—who happens to be the local sheriff—offers his help.
Deputy Logan Miller has been burned by love. He’s not looking to get involved but duty calls when the sheriff tasks him with Cassie’s protection. Thrown into close quarters with the gorgeous bookseller, sparks fly. Logan is drawn to Cassie, but it’s hard to get close to someone who keeps themselves guarded all the time. To keep Cassie safe, Logan must open his heart but that’s something he swore he’d never do.

It had been almost a week since the deputy’s apology, a week where Cassie took great pains to stay out of his way. Mel had gone to the drive-in for lunch with instructions to bring back a burger and onion rings for her. She planned on having a full hour to herself, since the store was usually quiet at that time of day on a Thursday. The sunshine seemed to be keeping the customers away, with no shortage of activities to do in town when the weather was so unseasonably nice.
She had settled in at the office desk to go over plans for the coffee bar she wanted to install when she heard the ringing of the bell over the door. Who could that be at this time of day? Rounding the last bookshelf, she almost ran into the deputy, who grabbed her arms to steady her when she stumbled over a chair while backing away.
“Slow down there, Miss Cassie; don’t want you to re-injure that ankle.”
“My ankle is fine,” she snapped. “No thanks to you,” she muttered before looking up at him, “What can I do for you today?”
“I’m looking for a book on plumbing. Need to replace a pipe and don’t want to call a plumber.”
“I believe those are back in the last row,” she answered as she walked in that direction. “We have some really good, basic, how-to books.” She reached the section and turned around, and he stopped, right there behind her, in her space. “Hey, no tailgating,” she smirked, trying to make light of it.
He chuckled, and blocked the aisle. She dodged to slip around him, but he spread his arms to keep her there. Suddenly, his hands were holding both of her arms, and she couldn’t move.
“What are you doing, deputy?” she demanded, confused and staring him square in the eyes.
His blue eyes held her gaze as he murmured, “Trying to get you out of my head.” Taking her by surprise, he lowered his face and touched his mouth to hers, nipping at her bottom lip. She gasped at the unexpected development, and he took advantage of the opportunity to deepen the kiss, while moving his hands to her back and pulling her closer. Seeming to go on forever, the touch of his lips sent shock waves through her entire body. She could feel how the kiss affected him, and the hard lump of him pressed against her leg.
Somewhere in the back of her brain, the sound of the bell over the door registered, but she couldn’t move; didn’t want to pull away. “Hey Reggie, where are you?” The spell broken by the voice, she stepped back and out of Logan’s embrace.
“Shit,” she muttered under her breath. “How in hell did I let that happen?” she gazed up at Logan in wonderment. “That is never going to happen again,” she whispered, not wanting James to hear. “Here’s your damn book.” She managed to maneuver her way around Logan and over to the counter.
