Presley Marks has just become a cliché: the jilted bride. Wearing a white dress, standing in front of her friends and family, she announces that her fiancé—according to his text—has forgotten about the wedding.
Humiliated and angry, she hides from the world in the mundane routine of her life. Working at the Clifton Forge Garage isn’t glamorous, but it’s safe from the spotlight.
At least it was, until Shaw Valance comes to town.
The notorious Hollywood actor is starring in a movie based on the town’s infamous murder. When he’s not on set, Shaw hovers at the garage, watching as they build his custom motorcycle and irritating her with his handsome smile. He was supposed to leave once filming wrapped and go back to his fancy life, not buy the house next door.
But Shaw might regret that purchase once Presley’s ex-fiancé returns, bringing with him a war between old rivals that could burn both their houses down.
Starting a new life in Clifton Forge was the thing that allowed Presley to keep her sanity. Running from the past led Presley to the Clifton Forge Garage. Surrounded by the tendrils of a new life, Presley decided this was where she could find the home she always craved.
Surrounded by bikers, Presley knew a thing or two about motorcycle gangs. What she didn’t count on was having her fiancé be a part of a club that wasn’t exactly friendly to the residents of Clifton Forge. In spite of the obstacles, Presley pushed on and planned a wedding. Then Presley found herself taking on a new role – the jilted bride. Left at the alter on the day of her wedding, Presley found herself questioning everything that had transpired in her life.
Nothing could have prepared Presley for crossing paths with Shaw Valance. The Hollywood hunk has made his presence known after barreling into town for his next movie. Presley wants nothing to do with Shaw or the movie that is centered around the murder of Draven’s former lover. Lucky for Presley – Shaw doesn’t take ‘no’ for an answer. Nursing her broken heart, Presley is determined to keep Shaw at arm’s length. Little did Presley know that the whirlwind that was coming her way landed right next door.

My realtor would have earned a higher commission if she had mentioned that the woman who lived next door was Presley Marks. “Isn’t this a surprise?”
“Is it?” Presley asked, frowning as I descended my steps and crossed the lawn, meeting her in her driveway. She raised a dark blond eyebrow. “Because it sort of feels like stalking.”
I chuckled. “I swear I had no idea you lived next door.”
But what a bonus. I wouldn’t have to make excuses to stop by the garage to see her. She could tear that insurance waiver to shreds. Presley had to know I didn’t give a damn about that bike they were building for me.
“You bought this house?”
“Yeah.” I reached for the grocery bags she had in her hands. “Here, let me help.”
She twisted away. “I’ve got them.”
“Come on.” I stepped forward and she took a step back. Wait, did she really think I was stalking her? “I’m just trying to help. I mean, I’ll probably start writing down your daily schedule so I can make sure our paths cross at least once a day. But that’s normal, right? For stalkers?”
“Are you being funny?”
My smile flattened. “I guess not.”
