First love always burns brighterâ€¦
Sheriff Eli Garrett is grateful for the good things in this life. Like his two best friends since childhood. A job that he loves. Enough land under the big skies of Montana to make a man feel free. And Brynne Bailey, finally back home in Painted Pony Creek to stay. Brynne was his high school sweetheartâ€”and the girl heâ€™d betrayed all those years ago. But now, with a new year right around the corner, itâ€™s time to make amends and see what the future might holdâ€¦if sheâ€™ll let him.
Brynne has one rule for herself: never date another cop. She made that mistake once before, and her heart still hasnâ€™t recovered from losing the kids sheâ€™d started to think of as her own. So sheâ€™s happy to put the past behind her and be Eliâ€™s friend. Anything else is out of the questionâ€¦until one electric kiss changes everything between them. But when a case blows wide open, putting Eli in danger, Brynne will confront her biggest fear. Some rules are meant to be broken and some hearts are worth the risk for a second chance with your first love.
