We finally get Holly's history and what lead her to Bliss. It wasn't her choice to move to this town, but she made the best of it and she's made really good friends here. Her home is here and she has tried to pursue the good doctor, but he wouldn't budge. So when Alexei comes back to Bliss, she has the opportunity to move on. He is a sexy, changed man and he's trying to move on with his life. English isn't his first language and I so enjoyed the way he'd mess up what he was trying to say. It was endearing! Alexei understands Caleb and is a good friend to him. Both Alexei and Holly have to work a little harder to get through to Caleb and let him see the man they see him as. They teach him to let them in and to accept their love and friendship. I adored this story and it was full of heart and emotions! And of course, since this is Lexi, we have a bit of danger lurking in the shadows.
Re-released in a second edition with new content.
Holly Lang has a hard time trusting men. Eight years ago, her husband tossed her aside and took her son away from her. Finding the little town of Bliss has given her a second chance at life, new friends, and sense of belonging. Unfortunately, Bliss also seems to have filled her days and nights with dreams of two beautiful men. She can’t stop thinking about the gentle but haunted Dr. Caleb Burke, and the exotic and dangerous Alexei Markov.
Caleb Burke isn’t your ordinary town doctor, but he’s always dedicated himself to trying to be a good man. His journey to this quirky little town was not an easy one. Some of the stops along the way left him scarred in more ways than one. But when he first sees Holly, it’s like someone threw open the blinds and let the sunlight into his life for the first time in years.
Alexei Markov is nothing like Caleb Burke. Working as a hit man for the Russian mafia, he was forced to do unspeakable things. He suffered through all the moral compromises to fulfill one simple goal, killing the man who murdered his brother. When a mission led him to Bliss, he found something more precious than vengeance. A woman named Holly Lang. Throughout months of living in witness protection, testifying against his former employers, all he could think about was finding his way back to her.
After returning to Bliss, Alexei and his strange new ally Caleb discover that they aren’t the only ones interested in Holly. Someone else is stalking her and appears to want her dead. The only way to discover the identity of the killer is for all three to face up to the secrets of their past and work together to fight for everything they have found in Bliss.
