Her life depends on her ability to hide her identity.
Loving him may cost her everything
Eight years ago she was left for dead and Maddison Baer gained a life. It wasn’t her real life, but it was more than she’d had before. Pretending to care about her looks and social lifestyle was sometimes more exhausting than fun. Lying to her only real friend was hard, but if it kept her safe, she could do it.
Then there was Ryan Gramble. A man that made Maddison speechless.
Ryan has spent years running from one challenge to another. He’s come to Chandler County to face and deal with his previous traumas and come from under his family’s overprotective wing. He has used his love for horses as a way to treat himself and others with equine therapy. He prides himself on his ability to read people.
Still, he isn’t ready for Dr. Maddison Baer, with that beautiful face and those disturbingly familiar eyes…that lie.
Their attraction is instantaneous, but neither is willing to pursue what they believe is an ill-fated relationship. That is, until danger comes perilously close to Maddison and she is forced to seek refuge amongst the lights and glitter of Chandler County at Christmas. As the threat looms Ryan steps up to keep Maddison safe only to find that they are in danger of falling for one another.
Will they give in and accept the gift they’ve been denying themselves?
This inspirational interracial romantic suspense is part of the Chandler County multi-author branded series.
This standalone is my third book in this series.

Pioneers had to be brave, resolute and inventive to survive in the hostile environment in which they found themselves.
In my novel, Fiery Possession, Jo, the heroine and her widowed sister-in-law had no money to buy oil/kerosene for their lamps, therefore they had to compromise. This is where slush lamps would be used.
Slush lamps were made from containers half filled with clay, then topped up with mutton fat, and with a piece of worsted material wrapped around a stick to form a wick. They were smelly and smokey but did throw out light.
