A Photo Finish: A Small Town Second Chance Romance (Gold Rush Ranch Book 2)

By Elsie Silver / Genre: Sports, Romance
A Photo Finish: A Small Town Second Chance Romance (Gold Rush Ranch Book 2)

I’ve seen every square inch of Violet Eaton’s delectable body and she has no idea who I am.

Until now.

What happened between us online, in our chats, was meant to stay anonymous and in the past.

Until it didn’t.

It’s a small world, but Ruby Creek is even smaller. When I move to the tiny town, the grumpy facade I’ve created slips when we’re forced to live under the same roof.

Every flush of her cheeks, every time her eyes flare with heat, every time she begs me not to stop, the ice I’ve encased myself in melts. She has me wanting things I can’t want. Things I’ve been dreaming about since I first laid eyes on her two years ago—things I don’t deserve.

But my invisible wounds have the power to ruin us both. As a former soldier, I should have the discipline to walk away, but the more I open up to Violet, the more I want to keep her.

I came back from the war a different man, but my scars are older and deeper than anyone knows—and I planned to keep it that way. I planned to keep my secrets hidden.

Until her.

My Dad warned me Never. Trust. A Lockhart.

He had drilled in into me, again and again.

I was a Kent, and the Lockharts, were our enemies.

Beautiful dark blonde, sun-streaked hair, beautiful blue eyes and the longest eyelashes I have ever seen.

But I knew, they were conceited windbags who would lie to your face and stab you in the back as soon as you turned away.

When she slipped through the door a thrill went through me.

She was forbidden fruit.

We were breaking the rules.

When her father caught us at the boathouse, our love was derailed. Over. Forever. She turned the lights out on our love in an instant – the Ice Queen.

Fifteen years later, her outrageous secrets are revealed I knew I could NEVER forgive her.

She stole from me what I could never get back, and now she’s about to break me again.

A Warrior with a scarred heart who doesn’t know how to love…and the woman who must teach him how before it’s too late…

A Scourge Warrior with pearly gray skin and glowing red-on-black eyes, Xairn is filled with conflicting emotions. On one hand, he has finally gained his freedom and cut the ties that bound him to his race and the sadistic male who is his father. But doing so has unleashed feelings in him that Xairn would rather keep buried. Desires that he prayed would never manifest now rage through him and they are centered on one woman alone… Lauren Jakes.

Abducted by the Scourge, Lauren has formed a connection with Xairn more meaningful than any other in his life. But though she thinks she knows him, there is more to the huge Scourge warrior than she comprehends. A nightmare childhood and a cruel father have scarred Xairn’s heart almost past the point of healing. But that is nothing to the secret inside him—the forbidden desires coded into his very DNA , which urge him to commit unspeakable acts in order to sate his newly awakened hunger.

Can Xairn resist the brutal desire growing within him and fight against his very nature, which urges him to dominate and possess the female he mates? Can Lauren heal his heart before the AllFather’s trap closes on both of them? And can she teach him how to love before it’s too late?

Welcome to Holiday Hills, where the coffee’s fresh and there’s magic in the air…
I have the perfect life. I recently rented the most adorable little apartment on top of my favorite bookstore/coffee shop on Main Street in Holiday Hills, the charmingest of charming small southern towns. I spend my days ghostwriting a cozy mystery series for a well-known author, and maybe just a minute or two crushing on the town’s police chief. But of course, I’d never let that cat out of the bag. I’m still reeling from my recent divorce, and no matter what my bestie says, I’m so not ready for anything in the romance department.
Speaking of cats, my little Burmese, Cooper, follows me around like he’s my guard dog. Thankfully, Holiday Hills is animal friendly. Everyone’s got a cat or dog, and that crazy old woman on the back end of town had the funniest talking parrot.
Oh, that crazy old woman, she was a local celebrity, which was often trouble for her daughter. How do I know? Because that’s me. I was the crazy old woman’s daughter.
The good news is everyone loved my mother, including me. The bad news is she recently died, and when she did, she opened a whole new world for me, one I’d always thought was fictional.
The magical world.
Now I have witchy powers, a talking cat, and a knack for finding dead bodies in my quaint little town.
Ones that haven’t died by accident.
My name is Abby Odell and I’m a witch.
Who knew? I sure didn’t. Thanks for that, Mom.
