Wild Heart

How do you tame a wild heart?

Mal: Everyone’s got a talent. Mine is running away.
Well, that, and picking the wrong guys.
So I guess I have two talents.
Lucky me.

The problem is, my psycho ex won’t take no for an answer.
He won’t even take me leaving the state as an answer.
And when he tracks my cell phone to a roadside motel, I have two options:
Lose my freedom, and possibly my life.
Or disappear completely.

Which is how I wind up on Summersea–a tiny island off the coast of Georgia, where the ice cream shoppes outnumber the people and the air smells like unicorns and happiness.
It’s a fairytale on steroids, and me, with my past and my demons?
I definitely don’t belong.

Until I meet Deacon Murphy.

Deacon, owner of the Wisteria Inn and my boss for the summer, is unfairly perfect.
He’s strong and warm and raising six stray kittens he found in his yard.
He’s hot, in that soccer-dad-with-a-secret-sadness kind of way.
He’s so far out of my league, he’s out of my solar system.

So of course I fall head over heels for him.

There’s no way a guy like Deacon wants someone like me.
But he listens when I talk.
He makes me feel like I matter.
And for the first time in my life, I find myself wanting to stay.

When your only talent is running, trust is terrifying.
But when my past comes knocking, I’m faced with a new choice.
Do I run, or tell the truth?
Run, or stay and fight?
Run–or trust Deacon with my heart?
