“With his stunning good looks, dark mysterious nature and his knack for saving her life, how could Skylar not fall for Mason. The question is, can she break through the wall surrounding his heart while her life is at risk again and again.” —Ellie, EllieSewSweet





She remembered it clearly, as if it happened yesterday . . . the day her dad left and never came home. Skylar was only eight years old at the time, but she never forget how it felt like her whole world had been taken from her.

“Mommy, where’s Daddy? Why isn’t he home?” Skylar asked as they cuddled in bed.

“Skylar, I’m going to tell you something, and I want you to be a brave big girl,” she said nervously, lacing her fingers through Skylar’s hair.

“Did something happen to Daddy?” Skylar asked, feeling her heart pound faster.

“Daddy can’t come home. He had to go away.”

Skylar knew what her mom meant, but she needed to be sure. Needing to go away meant he would come back home, eventually. “What do you mean? Will he be home for Christmas?”

“Sky—” Mom started to say, but she was unable to finish as Skylar started to throw a tantrum. Skylar didn’t mean to, but a feeling in the pit of her stomach alerted her that something was terribly wrong.

“Don’t call me Sky.” She jumped out of bed, knowing at that moment that her fears had come true. “Only Daddy calls me Sky.” She looked out the window and recalled how her dad had told her that she was beautiful, like the sky. It was the reason why they had named her Skylar. Her dad had given her that name.

Skylar started to calm down after seeing the beauty of the night and took in a deep breath. “Is he . . . dead?” Her fists were tight as she prepared for the news.
