Sara Blackard, Jan 5, 2021 - Fiction - 200 pages

Her brother’s best friend has always held her heart. Now that she has his attention, will her happily ever after be ripped away?

Piper Fields finds contentment in managing her cousin’s music career from the safety and anonymity of staying behind the scenes.

Since her parents’ death at barely thirteen, Piper’s fear of losing others has kept her focused on caring for those she loves. Meanwhile, her own dreams have been left backstage. Not that it really mattered anyway. Her dreams were out of reach and so was her brother’s friend, Rafe Malone.

Rafe Malone approached life with a firm desire to safeguard those who couldn’t protect themselves and have fun in the process.

That all changed the day a mission for the Army turned south, forcing him to take the life of a child soldier. Now, the jokester mask he wears to hide his pain is put to the test when his best friend’s sister needs his help. No matter how hard he tries to convince himself he shouldn’t taint her with his tarnished soul, her nurturing presence tempts him to break the bro code of staying away from your friend’s sister.

Can Rafe keep Piper safe when the evasive threat turns deadly?

Will Piper trust what she’s discovered in Rafe or is it just another childish daydream?

The Stryker Security team is called out again. This time it happens to be old friends of Rafe, Chloe and Piper, who are being stalked. Dealing with memories of the past, a stalker that goes to great lengths to terrify, a storm, a rockslide and a downed plane are just a few of the reasons why they begin to believe those notes left behind — there’s nowhere you can go that I won’t find you.
The darkness of the past must be dealt with before any of them can move on. Will they finally accept God’s truth and let Him shield them from the lies of the enemy? Each one has their dreams — to pursue them means to let go of everything standing in the way. Then they can finally discover who they really are.
