When it came to the men in her life, Charlotte Belmont was cursed. Sheโ€™d known losers, cheaters, abusers, and criminals, so it went without saying, she stopped trusting her judgment a long time ago. Then Dalton came into her life; a good, dependable man who made her heart race and her body hot. When she felt herself falling for him, she did the only thing she could think to protect them both . . . she ran like hell.

Dalton Prescott was a protector by nature, so when the woman heโ€™d been tasked to keep safe was almost killed on his watch, he carried that guilt like a weight on his shoulders. What made matters worse was that before everything went south, Dalton had started to care for Charlotte in a way that had nothing to do with his job.

Sheโ€™s determined to ignore their attraction and keep him at a distance, but heโ€™s playing for keeps and has no intention of losing. However, when ghosts from the past start popping up, bringing with them a whole new threat, Dalton may be the only man who can keep her safe this time.

**Hope Valley is a series of interconnected, standalone, small town romances.**


His eyes were still dancing with humor when he finally got a hold of himself and looked back down at me.

โ€œWhatโ€™s so funny?โ€

โ€œThe fact you thought you had to convince me you werenโ€™t perfect,โ€ he said, a chuckle still shaking his chest.

โ€œBelieve me, Thumbelina, Iโ€™m well aware of the fact you arenโ€™t perfect.โ€

My eyes narrowed into slits when he started cracking up again. โ€œAll right,โ€ I said snootily. โ€œYou donโ€™t have to

laugh so damn hard about it.โ€

โ€œYou did everything you could to make my life miserable when I was put in charge of keepinโ€™ you safe. You were loud, you picked fights constantly, youโ€™re hardheaded, you had shit taste in music, youโ€™re messy, and you were constantly eatinโ€™ my yogurt, even though I put my name on it before stashing it in the fridge. Christ, baby. You pretended to have menstrual cramps just so you could sneak out on me when I was tryinโ€™ to protect you.

Straight up, you were a pain in my ass, so trust me when I say you donโ€™t have to warn me.โ€

I squirmed in his arms until he was forced to let me go, and took a step back, planting my hands on my hips while shooting fire from my eyes. โ€œFirst off, I do not have shit taste in music.โ€

โ€œBabe, every one of your playlists is like beinโ€™ trapped at the g***** Lilith Fair with no escape.โ€

โ€œSecond,โ€ I continued, ignoring his dig, โ€œIโ€™m not messy. I know exactly where everything is.โ€

His brows climbed high on his forehead as he looked around my apartment to the piles of clothes and shoes

strewn about.

โ€œI got really tired after finishing my laundry,โ€ I defended snappily.

โ€œBut Iโ€™ll have you know, theyโ€™re all clean, and like I said, I know exactly what is in each and every pile.โ€

He grinned arrogantly, and I wasnโ€™t sure what I wanted to do more, kiss it or smack it off his sexy, stupid face.

โ€œWhatever you say, sweetheart.โ€

โ€œAnd last, that yogurt was in my fridge. That means, labeled or not, it was fair game.โ€
