Heiress to a vast fortune, Victoria Cole has everything she wants, including the perfect fiancé. Having left two other men at the altar, Victoria is sure that now she's found her true love and will finally live happily ever after. As her wedding draws near, however, Victoria's life is threatened. To keep her safe, Victoria's father hires a bodyguard.
Tom Cushman's number one priority is protecting his clients, which means no personal entanglements. But he's never guarded someone as beautiful and winsome as Victoria. After a near-kidnapping, the wedding is cancelled, and Tom hides Victoria at Cape Cod's Race Point Lighthouse until her attacker can be found. Appointed as assistant light keeper, with Victoria posing as his wife, Tom believes the isolation of the lighthouse will keep her safe.
As Victoria struggles to live without familiar luxuries, her heart betrays her with growing feelings for her protector. Determined to help Tom stop fleeing from his haunted past, can the runaway bride learn to face her own fears? With the attacker closing in, will both of them ever be able to stop running and find the safety they long for?
This was a wonderful romantic story filled with a lot of suspense, tension, heartache and sweet moments. Tom was an incredible hero. I think He's my favorite that I've read of Jody's thus far! I loved the romance and unabashed passion Tom's dad had for his wife and how he encouraged Tom to Love like that too. The dinner scene in chapter 12 had me giggling and fanning myself . Just so fun, sweet and honorable. A clean yet passionate story not to be missed!
Not as good as the first two but I managed to stick with it. I liked it.
