eBook by Shiloh Walker

eBook Category: Romance
eBook Description: One woman, one man, and a love that won't let either of them go. Born on the wrong side of the tracks and dealt a fair share of hardship, Nikki Kline never gives up a fight. Even when her reason to keep going is ripped from her, Nikki tries desperately to hang on. But when the man who broke Nikki's heart comes back into her life she doesn't know how much she can take. Especially since that man seems determined to win back her damaged heart. Wade Lightfoot is a man who knows he's made more mistakes than most. As much as he would like to repair the damage he's done to those he loves, Wade also knows there is no going back. But when he sets out to put things right the last thing he's prepared to find out is that he had a son. A son he'll never get the chance to meet. When the truth is out and all the old wounds are bared, it seems impossible that Nikki and Wade will find their way back to each other. But true love is an undeniable force that even past hurts can't destroy. This book has been previously published and has been revised from its original release. Warning: This title contains heartbreaking tragedy, lies and deception, and a scorching passion that nothing can deny.

Great Good OK Poor


It was hot--the kind of heat that wrapped around a person, threatened to suffocate, threatened to choke. Hot, with leaden, overcast skies that seemed to promise rain, but it had been overcast for days and they hadn't seen a drop.

Nicole Kline was just outside of town when she flipped on the radio and heard the weather report. A storm was coming.

Great.

Not the ideal day for a run into town, but it was either suffer the heat or suffer the frustration when all she found for dinner was Cheetos and frozen ground beef. If she had paid attention to the weather before they had left home she would have suffered the Cheetos, the frozen ground beef--and her younger brother's griping.

Yum.

Instead of trying to make the thirty-minute drive back to her home in the hills, she decided to grab her groceries then go to her dad's and wait it out there.

She made it in and out of the store in under twenty minutes. As she walked outside with her infant son, Jason, perched on her hip, she glanced up at the sky. The sight of the thunderheads piling up overhead made her wince.

Her brother, Shawn, bumped her shoulder with his. "Come on," he said. "We're going to get soaked if we wait around too long."

She made a face. "We're going to get soaked anyway." She chucked her son under his chin and smiled at him. Not that he was at all worried about those clouds.

The scent of rain hung heavy on the air.

Looks like the farmers are going to get the rain they want and then some, Nikki mused as she secured the straps on the baby's car seat. After she finished securing Jason in his seat, she went around to help her brother finish loading the groceries into the back of the SUV.

Flattened drops of rain splattered the hood of the car as she slid into the driver's seat. Then Nikki glared at the skies as the clouds burst, dousing the parking lot under a deluge of water.

"Don't sweat it, Nik," Shawn advised. "We can just wait it out at Dad's."

She sighed. That had been the plan anyway, not that she had told Shawn. Her brother and her father were on the outs for some reason, which was why Shawn had been spending the past few weeks at her place.

She could hear Jason jabbering to himself from the backseat.

"Dogs, dogs, dogs," he chanted over and over while he played with a tattered stuffed mouse and chewed busily on the remaining ear.

At least that was what she thought he was saying.

Flicking Shawn a glance, she ordered, "Put your seatbelt on, will ya?"

Rolling his eyes, he fastened the lap belt and drawled, "Yes'm." He gave Jason a look in the mirror, circling his finger at his temple. The baby laughed and clapped his hands before launching into a long and detailed jabbering monologue with his friend, Mouse.

Hazel eyes squinted, Nikki stared through the windshield, blocking out the noise of the rain and her son's jabbering. Even though she drove with the lights on, she couldn't see much more than fifteen or twenty feet in front of her.

Twenty minutes passed and she still wasn't at her dad's. The store wasn't even ten minutes from there, but that was under normal driving conditions.

Growling with frustration, she snapped, "I can't see a damn thing in this!"

The rumble of thunder edged closer. Lightning flashed.

"You're almost there, sis. It's just up there."

She spotted the turn off as Shawn spoke. "Almost there, fella," she said as Jason started shrieking, "Eat! Momma, eat!"

"Just a few minutes, Jas--"

Neither Shawn nor Nikki saw the other car. It came flying around a curve fast--so fast--and hit them from behind. She was thrown forward. Blinding pain sliced through her head and a loud, thunderous crash filled her ears.

A blaring noise rent the air, but above it she heard a baby's panicked, startled cry.

From the passenger seat next to her, Shawn swore viciously, grabbing for the door handle.

"Jason!" Her voice was garbled, choked. Blood filled her mouth and a red haze clouded her vision.

Instinctively she slammed on the brakes, wrenched the steering wheel to the right towards safety. Off to their left was a steep drop off--

Another jolt struck her SUV, throwing her back. She was pinned against the seat by her safety restraint as the world started to spin before her. Above the roaring in her ears she heard thunder and the screeching sound of metal against metal. Then all was silent.
