There’s no beast love can’t tame…
The Happily Ever After Co., Book 4
Maggie Gleason isn’t looking for a husband, just a place to disappear. When a kind marriage broker finds her a teaching position in a tiny mountain town, complete with a room in a boarding house that boasts a cozy little library, Maggie is sure she’s found heaven. Or, at least, peace.
There’s one problem: fellow boarder, Alex Coburn. The rude, reclusive bounty hunter has staked out his claim to the library, virtually daring her to set foot inside it. Despite his intimidating countenance, the lure of rows and rows of leather-bound books is too much to resist. And Maggie is through cowering before demons.
Amazed at her own temerity, she commandeers a tiny corner of the library for herself. She even manages to form a fragile truce with the mysterious, masterful beast of a man. Yet just as she dares to imagine that with time, something more might develop between them, Alex is gone. On a job? Some emergency?
As if to make her humiliation complete, an ugly demon from her past returns to remind her once and for all that no matter how far she runs, she will always end up alone…

The wounds are too deep, and must be allowed to heal before Braddock can work his magic. Luckily, he also knows the perfect spot for such healing to commence….
