This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
What do a fifteen-year-old pact, a fake engagement, and a stalker have in common? Audrey Hughes.
Audrey’s ex-boyfriend won’t take ‘no’ for an answer. A master manipulator and a violently selfish man, he’s decided Audrey is his property. And he’s determined to get her back. Forcibly, if necessary.
She flees to the one place she ever found ‘family’—to Enchantment Bay. More precisely, to Logan Hunter.
Logan is a successful attorney and consummate bachelor. His work is his wife, and that’s the only long-term relationship he sees for himself. Until a childhood sweetheart shows up and reminds him of the pact they made years earlier—to get married.
It surprises him that she remembered, stuns him that he’s intrigued, and shocks him to discover her reason for returning. He uses all his influence and connections to protect her, only to be the one who causes her unbearable pain and drives her away.
Can Logan find a way to keep Audrey safe, make things right, and mend both their broken hearts?

Real Life Issues
I love it when an author weaves real life issues into a good storyline. Stacy Claflin does that all the while drawing the reader deep into the souls of her main characters.
It’s easy to feel and understand Audrey’s insecurities. She never had a real family, a real home. She struggled with self worth and fed into her abusive ex’s lies and put downs. Following her growth and change is frustrating but also refreshing as she learns to make good choices that uplift her rather than damage her.
Then there is Logan, a workaholic who won’t make time for a true relationship. Unlike Audrey, he was reared in a loving family who would always be there for him. He is married to his work. He’a a sought after attorney who looses few cases. Success is what motivates him. Women seeking love can’t fit in to his lifestyle of work, work, work…. win, win, win. As with Audrey, it’s good seeing Logan’s metamorphosis.
They say opposites attract. It’s nice and even relaxing watching Audrey and Logan being drawn to each other as they learn that love may not conquer all, but it’s a good foundation to having it all …. success at home, family, friends work and peers.
