Eveline Rose

Can their love be real if her name and background are fake?


... Released on parole... Hearing those three words sent me looking for a new town, but I never expected Weatherford, Texas to feel like home. I was getting mom-vibes from my boss and sexy looks from my boss's son. I was making friends and learning what it felt like to be in a real family, but with every step closer to love and happiness, I risked cracking my mask and revealing my secrets. I wouldn't repay the Sheppard family's kindness by endangering their lives.


The second my eyes connected with Meg's, I knew she was meant to be mine. I also knew she was hiding something. Lucky for her, I spent my entire life being raised, trained, and conditioned to protect. Meg would share when she was ready, and I was patient enough to wait, but I didn't have to. Being a PI made it easy to find out the truth for myself. I was determined to uncover the threat against her and keep her safe.

When Meg learns about his snooping, the betrayal sends her running... right into the duct-tape wielding hands of her worst nightmare. Can Jack reach her in time, or will she have to save herself? More importantly, is their love strong enough to overcome the lies?

"When a book calls itself a romance. I have certain expectations. I expect a man and a woman to go on a journey together. In the end I expect the author to deliver a couple I can believe in. Recent buys have failed to meet those expectations. But Eveline Rose delivers. Men are actually men. Women are women, and most importantly - families are real families." Jennifer B.
