Nikki Setzer thought she knew what she wanted and transformed herself to get it. Now she’s having a do that again, to escape.
Micah Allen is in a new town starting his own law firm on a shoestring. The last thing he wants to do is harm some woman he keeps running into, nearly literally. But they do keep running into each other, and this woman definitely has some secrets.
Can Nikki allow Micah to get close? How much danger is he in if she does? But this place is beginning to feel like a home with friends. Does she dare let down her guard?

The desire to break into a run to get to her car was brutally suppressed. It would only draw attention to her and she’d already made a fool of herself once today. What was wrong with her? He was an attorney, he’d handled her closing. She never had to see him again.
And no that was not regret she was feeling. She had no need for a man in her life. No desire either. Besides, he needed a haircut. That little curl that fell down on his forehead wasn’t professional and he hadn’t even put on his coat. Those forearms were still exposed and his shoulders were so broad . . .
Nikki got in the car, locked it behind her and headed toward the house.
He’d been there. He’d driven by to look at it, probably as a favor. It was a nice gesture. He said he hadn’t gone inside. She’d install new and better locks tomorrow.
Once home she placed the paperwork in the bottom drawer of her bureau, then checked every window and door. All were locked. Maybe she would get a dog.
Maybe one day she wouldn’t feel the need for one.
No, she couldn’t look at it like that. She’d made great progress today. She would get her life back.
