As Jax pursues answers that could get his family killed, his dreams come to life when Andrea unexpectedly returns to his arms. But as their passionate affair heats up, neither can foresee an old pain twisting into a looming threat.
As the odds stack up against them and danger lurks around every corner, Jax and Andrea must find a way to hold onto their budding romance if they have any chance of saving each other.
As I pack up my Christmas decorations for 2020, I close a chapter that was not the best year, one of change, an uncomfortable norm, heartache, and things that anger. I’m also reminded how strong I am and how we all have been warriors. I’m reminded of the blessings I have; one is my family, friends, my health, home, Romeo and my husband. We can move forward to a better universe where we are kind to all and spread love and joy.
So box up the road behind you and start anew. May the new year bless you and yours. From our family we send you love, peace, lots of hugs, and prosperity.
