Can a near-tragedy help two best friends realize they’re meant to be so much more?

Best friends since grade school, high-powered Chicago attorney, Sean Flaherty, and small-town mayor Megan Mackenzie have always shared a special bond. When Sean is shot by a client’s angry ex, Megan rushes to his side, terrified she’s about to lose her long-time confidant.

Upon his return to River’s Edge to recuperate, Sean discovers that his feelings for his pal have taken an undeniable turn for the romantic. While Megan struggles with an unfamiliar longing for Sean, she worries that he may be mistaking a safe place to land for love.

Can Sean help her realize that they are truly meant to be so much more than friends?

EXCERPT:
Dear Lord, what was the matter with him?

Suddenly, it struck her like a thunderbolt why he wasn’t moving, why his hands were covering... oh, holy... Heat rose from her neck to her cheeks, but she couldn’t make herself look away from him, from his lap.

He raised one dark brow when he caught her staring, lifted his hands, looked down, and then back up at her with rueful smile. “Aye, and who knew, after all these years, you could have this kind of effect on me, Meggy Mackenzie.” The Irish lilt that always came out when he was particularly stressed turned the words into a caress.

For a brief second, she willed the floor to open up so she could fall into a deep dark hole and the whole nightmare evening would be over. “Sean, I-I... I’m...” Chagrined, she couldn’t seem to form an intelligent sentence. She simply stood there gaping at him, her hands sticky from the wine soaked into her sweater and her face hot with embarrassment. Her lips trembled and she blinked furiously to keep from completing her humiliation by bursting into tears.

Sean umphed himself up from the settee, got his balance with his cane, and with the other hand, swept the mess from her fingers and carried it to the kitchen sink. Dumping it all into one side, he yanked the magazine out and dropped it into the trash can beside the bar. He flipped the faucet on, letting cold water run over her sweater and the coasters as he washed his hands. “Meg, come here.” He crooked his finger at her.

His grin was the old Sean—the one who could charm her into doing his math homework because even though Sean Flaherty was the star of the debate team, he sucked at sophomore algebra. Hesitating, she finally crossed to the kitchen and put her hands under the cold water to rinse off the wine, staring in disgust at what she’d done to her new sweater.
