L.A. cop, Jordan Masters Ryan has a problem. Her normal method of meeting a crisis head-on and taking it down won’t work. Not this time. Not when fate is her adversary. Having kept her from the man she thought she’d always marry, the same fickle fate took away the man she eventually did. Thrown back into the path of her first love, she finds hers is not the only heart fate has damaged.
Widower and software CEO, Cole McCall fills his days with computer codes and his free time working the family’s cattle ranch. Blaming himself for his wife’s death, he’s become hard and bitter. When his visiting former neighbor sets out to delete the firewall around his heart, he discovers there’s no protection against the Jordan virus. Though she understands his pain and reawakens his soul, will it be enough for Cole to overcome his past and embrace their fated hearts?
*Previously released as Fated Hearts. Revamped with over 10k words added, new scenes, new ending, scenes deleted. Heat level upped to hot.
Cole and Jordan have both suffered the unimaginable. They lost their spouses at a very young age. Jordan gets through it by finally opening up to her family and realizing they had to grieve too. Her meddling parents and those of Cole decide that Jordan is just what Cole needs to get him over the same loss. Neither of them is ready for the storm of emotions the other brings out.
When this couple is finally at the point that they can love again without guilt, I didn’t know if Cole was going to bite his pride and go after the girl. This is a truly beautiful story of second chance romance (in more than one way). I can’t wait to see how Connor brings Kerri out of the shell she’s been living in since her divorce, or how Kerri reassures Connor that he deserves love too.
