M.K Chester is the author of historical, contemporary and dystopian romantic fiction. She enjoys complex characters, themes of redemption and happy endings. Her life revolves around family, friends and her Scottish Terrier, Stewart Little.
When Ben Sheridan is released from prison in 1936, he returns to his hometown with only one goal, to lead a simple life. Although he’s paid his debt to society, he’s never forgiven himself for taking the life of his step-brother over a decade before. Storekeeper Heather O’Malley has never played a victim, but to most she’s still a “scarred” young woman. She seizes the opportunity to help Ben restart his life, in part to atone for her silence that sent her rescuer to prison. Ben can’t resist Heather’s free-spirit and she can’t resist his reluctant charm. Neither intends to fall in love but when their past threatens their connection and a young girl turns up missing, they discover how tied together their lives are and how fiercely they’re willing to fight for their future.
