He paid a high price to serve his country, and has no plans to risk his heart...
The man known only as Flynn lives on the periphery of life. Until the day a little girl drops into his life, on a quest for the dragon of Dragon Hill, the billionaire's estate where he acts as caretaker. She charms him with her cleverness and bright curiosity, and reaches a place in his heart he thought long hardened to stone. When her lovely courageous mother appears, that place in his heart is shattered forever. But his barriers are high, and strong.
Riley West has dealt with the worst life has thrown at her with the same determination she passed on to her daughter. When Gracie becomes fascinated with Flynn, a distrustful Riley tries to intervene. She has been running from her past for too long to let down her guard, even for this man who, after stealing her little girl's heart, is working his way into hers.
Can tough, hardened Flynn believe enough to let them into his life? Can Riley finally stop running and accept the help only he has ever offered?
Justine Dare Davis sold her first book in 1989, and followed that up with the sale of nineteen novels in less than two years. Her first four books were published in 1991, and she saw all reach the finals for either the Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Award or the Romance Writers of America prestigious RITA Award. She has since won the RITA award four times, along with several Reviewer's Choice awards and three Career Achievement awards from Romantic Times. At the 1998 national conference, Justine was inducted into the RWA Hall of Fame, making her one of a very select group of just eight writers. She also had four titles on the Romantic Times "Top 200 of All Time" list. Her sales now total more than 45, and her books have appeared regularly on best seller lists, including the USA Today list. She has been featured in several local newspapers and nationwide by Associated Press, has appeared on CNN, and on two episodes of a cable television series on romance. She has given workshops for many chapters of RWA, has spoken at several regional and international conferences and has taught at the UCLA Writer's Program. She is also featured in North American Romance Writers, an academic reference on the romance genre. Her limited free time is spent on reading, music, photography, watching the eagles near her home, and driving her restored 1967 Corvette Roadster---top down, of course.
