From New York Times bestselling author Kelly Elliott comes the gut-wrenching story of a love that transcends all odds—and transforms the deepest pain into the brightest hope.
Firefighter and first responder Preston Ward thought he had grown immune to the job’s emotional burns. But when he goes out on a particularly tragic call, he realizes that some scenes are too devastating to forget. And yet, if it weren’t for that terrible night, he never would have met the woman who makes him want to risk his heart.
More than once, Harmony Banks has watched her perfectly ordered world torn apart by fate. Now she’s finding out that what she lost wasn’t as perfect as she thought—and it’s tearing her apart. The only thing that keeps her going is the kindness of a stranger: the firefighter who saved her life the night everything changed.
Preston isn’t like the men who have come before. For one thing, he’s far more genuine. And the love Harmony feels growing between them is almost too intense for her wounded soul. But if she and Preston can push past heartbreak, they’ll find that something incredible awaits in each other’s arms.
Preston pulled my chair out for me as we sat down. We talked the entire time we ate. He told me about growing up in Boston before his father retired to the country. He had two brothers and a sister. His favorite place to be was at his parents’ country house or on the ocean sailing.
I decided to keep the conversation on Preston and he didn’t seem to mind.
Lori walked over and placed the Nutella and Bananas down in front of us.
“Dig in,” Preston said with a smile.
Chewing on my bottom lip, I asked, “Um . . . is Nutella good?”
Preston’s mouth dropped open as he stared at me.
“You’ve never had Nutella? Like, ever?”
Pressing my lips together so I didn’t giggle, I shook my head.
Preston leaned back in his chair and put his hand over his heart. “I’ve so much to teach you. So much.”
Swallowing hard, I felt my face flush.
Oh, the things I wanted Preston to teach me.
