Can a love built on lies…

…survive the truth?

Serena Stanhope fears her dark past might ruin the life she’s built as a successful shop owner. Especially when handsome Logan Masterson suddenly arrives in town asking questions about her background. He seems to have his own secrets, but the pair share an instant connection and Serena finds herself falling for Logan. He could destroy everything—or he could be the chance at love she thought she’d never have…

“I always loved Golden this time of year,” he said.
Grandmother turned in her chair to look at him. “You could love it again, you know.”
“I don’t see that happening.”
“Really? And what about Serena? Could she make you love living here again?”
He sent a sideways glance to his crafty grandmother. “Not very subtle.”
“I’m beyond subtle. I adore Serena. I see you two falling love.”
If only she knew he was halfway there.
“Don’t push it.”
She leaned in. “So there’s a chance?”
“I’m not really sure where we stand.”
“I am.” Grandmother looked across the park. “I saw you watching her in the food tent tonight.”
“You make it sound creepy.”
She chuckled. “No, more like a lovesick puppy.”
“Not much of a compliment. And if you say anything to Reid, I’ll deny it.”
“Would it be so bad? Falling in love?”
Would it? He’d never been there so he couldn’t say for sure. “You know I have trust issues, Grandmother.”
She waved her hand through the air. “Please. Just because your father made an error in judgment doesn’t mean every marriage is doomed. I was afraid when you went into your line of work you’d become jaded.”
“C’mon. You know I’ve never wanted to walk in Dad’s footsteps.”
“There are other men of character in our family line to emulate. Why, your grandfather was the finest man I knew. I loved him from the first moment I laid eyes on him and I still do to this day.”
“I know Grandfather was a good man. So is Reid. But I can’t help wonder…”
“Because you and your father are so alike?”
He ran a hand down his face. “I can’t believe I’m agreeing with you, but yes.”
“Then you look at his mistakes and make sure you never repeat them.”
Was it that easy? And why did he doubt himself? He’d swore never to be like Arthur Masterson, wasn’t that enough?
“Logan, look at me,” his grandmother demanded. He turned, not missing the sheen in her eyes under the bright lantern lights. “Love is worth experiencing. Until you discovered your birth certificate, you never doubted your parents’ love. Or mine.”
“I never question your love, Grandmother.”
Her lips curved down. “Bonnie and your father do love you.”
“Your point?”
“You can’t deny your heart forever, Logan. There is a woman out there who is waiting for your love. And you for hers.”
“And you’re along to what, accelerate the process?”
“I may tease about wanting you to marry before I die…” She paused. Frowned. “Okay, I mean it, but have I ever really pushed one particular woman on you? No. I’ve moved you in the general direction. Until now. Until Serena.”
“Why are you convinced she’s the one?”
“Why are you convinced she isn’t?”
