Life has never been easy for Stacey Reynolds. For the last forty years, she has lived for one thing – her girls. They were the only thing that got her through ‘that hell.’ Things were looking up. She had a good job. One daughter was happily married, another happy with her new baby, and even her baby was writing those books about the fantasy of romance. But she should have known – nothing good ever happens to her.
Rebel Zappa Moonchild is a drifter. Or maybe he’s just trying to outrun a past that he can never forget? Either way, Reb has made a good life for himself. He has applied all the tech skills that he learned as a Ranger to start his own security business. It gives him the freedom he needs to move from place to place in Elvira, his home on wheels.
Until Reb answers a friend’s plea to update the security system in his small-town casino in Sebida, Texas. He finds himself drawn into something he has been avoiding for years. It isn’t his friend’s pleas but the fractured look in his woman’s eyes that haunt his dreams.
Can he find a way this time to change the course of those dreams and give the woman he loves the life she deserves?
