HAPPILY NEVER AFTER
by Bess George
Dallas ADA Kelsey Brackston survives a brutal attack but struggles with PTSD. When someone begins to stalk her, she relocates hoping for a new start. A person can’t be hurt if they can’t be found. Her logic seems flawed when someone tries to kill her—again.
This could be Bode Taggert’s last chance at being a cop after crawling out of a bottle. Focused on the job, he avoids personal commitments. Something within him resonates with the lady ADA. Maybe it’s her desire to move forward after a life altering event. Or not being able to move forward no matter how hard you try.
Despite his good intentions, Bode falls for the sexy lawyer. While he and the police concentrate on arresting her stalker, Kelsey vanishes. With his career—and heart—on the line, Bode will stop at nothing to find her. But will their newfound faith in one another be enough to save the day? Or will their inner demons destroy them both?
The corners of her mouth twitched. “Okay, I’m impressed. What else do you do besides being super cop and community activist?”
A devilish smile made a shiver run down her back. “Well, lately I’ve been chasing a stubborn little gal who won’t let me catch her.”
She grunted. “You haven’t been chasing very hard.”
His eyes twinkled. “Are you complaining?”
“Hardly. I’m just stating the facts.”
“Well, the fact is, after our last meeting I got the idea you needed a little space from me trying to woo you.”
She choked on a swallow of wine. “Woo, me? What is that even supposed to mean?”
His hand patted her back making sure she could breathe. “You know, date you. I seem to have a knack for making you mad, so I decided to back off and give you some time to miss me. Did you?”
