Rescued in Maple Bay

His best friend’s widow needs his help… But he’s afraid she’s stealing his heart as well.

It takes everything Lilah Davis has to be a single mom and run the animal rescue she started with her late husband. In fact, without Henry’s parents and his best friend Trace checking in she’s pretty sure everything would fall apart. When three abandoned horses are turned over to her care, Trace is the one she turns to for help. It has absolutely nothing to do with how he makes her feel… Besides, she’s not ready for anything more than friendship.

Trace Cardona is honoring his best friend’s last wish—for him to watch over Lilah and the kids. So when Lilah ends up with a wild, dangerous horse that needs training, he’s willing to step in to help her—and continue to ignore his growing feelings for his friend’s widow.

Trace could never take Henry’s place… But the more time Lilah & Trace spend together, the stronger their connection grows. And ignoring their feelings seems impossible. Even if they both know they should.
