Nicole DeMonde returns to Regret Hollow for her brother’s wedding. There is nothing she wants more than to hurry and get this weekend over with. She knows she will run into her father at the wedding and she wants nothing to do with him or his new family. But nothing will prepare her for running into the one that broke her heart in high school.
Wyatt Truman is the brother of the bride. He is also the police chief for Regret Hollow. He is very happy for his sister since he feels he is the one that came between her and Zane’s relationship all those years ago. He knows he will run into Zane’s sister at the wedding and he has an apology already ready to go.
Nicole arrives in Regret Hollow and her rental car breaks down. The one person that comes to her rescue is no other than Wyatt. She can feel the feelings coming to the surface but will not allow her heart to be broken for a second time. When emotions come to surface that Nicole has tucked away for so long she will have no choice but to face them. Starting with one hot man. She believes if she gets him out of her system she will be able to get over the past.

“Stay in the truck. I’ll run in and grab your things,” he said, as he pulled into his driveway.
“Aren’t you going to invite me in for coffee?”
“No.” Fortunately, she didn’t know how much he wanted to invite her in. He had two nights and one day to get through. He’d protect her and send her away again. At the very least, she deserved that much.
“We could skip the coffee part.” She batted her eyelashes and laughed.
The laugh sucker-punched him. “I’m not going to make a move on you.”
Tomorrow, they’d be in-laws of a sort. He wouldn’t do anything to upset his sister on her wedding day. Having Zane beat the hell out of him for the things he’d do with Nicole if she walked inside his house again would definitely upset Julianne.
“Lucky for you, I’m looking forward to being the one who initiates all the moves.” She trailed her fingernails along his arm.
“I’m trying to make up for the past, not repeat it. Stay here.” He ran into the house and closed himself inside. Leaning against the door, he sucked in a deep breath. He never thought twice about doing the right thing on a daily basis, but, with Nicole, it took all his willpower.
Once calmness and control settled over him, he returned to the truck and stowed her luggage. As he resettled behind the wheel, she adjusted something on the rearview mirror.
“What are you doing?” he asked.
“Giving you a souvenir.” She shot him a smug look.
The glow of the outside lights revealed a silhouette of pale lacy fabric hanging from the mirror. He nearly choked on his tongue. “You took off your underwear?”
