The hero of Flagman's Folly has been gone more than a year. But he still stands between Ben Sawyer and what he desires most -- Dana Wright, the love of Ben's life.
When soldier Paul Wright left for the last time, he made his best friend promise to look after his wife and kids. Ben -- good, steady Ben -- is honoring that promise. And it's burning him up inside.
Because Dana is shutting Ben out. She wants him -- so much -- but she can't afford to give in. If she does, she'll spill her secret, and the betrayal will hurt everyone she cares about -- her children, who loved their daddy; her town, which loves its hero; and Ben, who loved his friend. She'll do anything to protect her secret -- even give up her second chance at happiness.
