MY HEART IS RACING, and my flesh is on fire.
I’m standing in front of Chance Bridger—the man who broke my heart
fifteen years ago.
You think there’s a woman out there for me?
I’d like to think there is.
What was I thinking, answering him like that?
I knew he was single. That he’d never left the ranch. I’m in the FBI and
have access to all the intel I want on him. Except I hadn’t looked into him
until my supervisor put me on the case. To do so would have been too
McGuinness knew the case was in my hometown. What he didn’t know
was that I’d been in a relationship with the suspect…and more.
One look at Chance and I’m that eighteen-year-old girl again, believing
his professions of love and devotion, giving him the gift I could only give

“He’s a dick,” Chance mutters. He runs a hand over the back of his neck.
So are you.
I want to say the words so badly. I want to cry and scream and shout
about how he shattered my heart all those years ago. I want answers, damn it.
I deserve answers. He left me broken. So broken. And alone when I needed
him the most.

because I don’t have a choice. He hurt me once. I’ll work this case and
nothing more. I’ll move on, just like I did before. But I have my eyes wide
open now. I know what Chance is really like and I will protect my heart.

over. We’re used to it.”
