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…

“What’s got her upset?” Carrie asked as she walked into their circle.
“Green-eyed monster,” Heidi quipped.
Serena sputtered over a denial that didn’t quite reach her tongue.
Carrie peered at the guests, not having to be told the topic of the conversation was Logan. “He’s not interested in her.”
Despite herself, Serena asked, “How can you tell?”
“Because I sat across the table from you two and trust me, Logan only had eyes for you.”
Her stomach did a funny flip, a mix between joy and nerves. She wrapped her arm around her best friend. “You always know what to say.”
Reid joined the group. “Are you ladies ready to get out of here?”
“So ready,” Heidi said, jumping at the chance to escape.
“I’ll meet you out front,” Serena told them. She went to their table to retrieve her purse, checking her phone to see if Lisa had texted. Relieved to find no messages, she started when Logan stopped beside her. “Checking on the store?”
“Yes. No problems, but I need to go back and close up.”
He escorted her to the door. “You know with the right people in place, your business can run successfully even if you aren’t there.”
“I’ve put so much of my heart and soul into Blue Ridge Cottage, I guess I worry.”
“You have a sound business, Serena.”
Her shoulders rose as she inhaled. “I’m getting better at letting go.”
They stepped onto the wide, covered porch.
“Everyone needs some fun time, you know.”
She pulled her sunglasses from her bag and slipped them on. “Are you trying to tell me something?”
“Maybe you should let your hair down.”
Her hand flew to her hair, which she’d pulled back in a tight bun. Not sure how guild women presented themselves at fund-raisers, she’d gone for what she hoped was tasteful. Logan took her hand in his and grinned. “I meant metaphorically.”
“I know.” When he didn’t let go, she squeezed his hand. “Thanks.”
“Just be who you are,” he suggested, which sent her stomach fluttering into a frenzy. Could having fun get her in big trouble? Guess she’d have to find out.
“Hey, you two, get over here,” Carrie called. Serena hesitantly released his hand, missing the touch immediately. Oh, dear, she had it bad. “We’re all going home to change then meet up at Smitty’s for dinner.”
“A real dinner,” Reid added.
Logan glanced at her. “You’ll be there, right?”
Going for lighthearted instead of lovesick, she said, “Where else would I be?”
“Great. Otherwise I’ll have to come get you myself and make sure you have a good time.”
Her heart tumbled. “You’re promising to entertain me?”

His killer grin said it all.
