Restoration - Tulsa Town Romance, Book 3
A Past Tragedy…
As an ER nurse and sexual assault examiner, Ashley McClure is no stranger to tragic events. But while helping others find closure, she allows her own attack to convince her she’ll never be able to love—or be loved. She throws herself into little more than her work, with hope that gathering evidence against other assailants will make up for letting hers get away.
A Past Failure…
Tulsa police officer Ryan Stone allowed his youth and cockiness to tank an undercover operation that left several people wounded. Even though everyone tells him different, he doesn’t believe he’s worth the position of detective. He strives each day to be a better cop, but no matter his accomplishments, they aren’t enough to eradicate the stain of guilt.
A future awaits them both.
Persuaded she needs a life outside the ER, Ashley agrees to attend a dinner party thrown by her friend and coworker. Unbeknownst to her, the handsome cop who frequents the ER has been invited too. Over dinner with friends, Ryan and Ashley develop more than just a professional relationship, but the more he pursues, the more frightened of giving her heart away she becomes. How can Ryan use what he’s learned from his mistakes to be the man Ashley needs? How can Ashley overcome the trauma of her past to let Ryan love her?
