Deacon has an ugly history, a history that broke him, leaving him a ghost of a man. Out of necessity, he left the normal world to descend into the criminal world and found he fit. So he stayed. Cold as ice and living off the grid, Deacon has no intention to connect, not with anyone.
Then he returns to some remote cabins in the Colorado Mountains and finds they have new owners. One of them is Cassidy Swallow, a young woman willing to work hard to live her quiet dream in a house by a river surrounded by aspen and pine.
Suddenly, Deacon finds he’s at war. Cassidy’s pull for him to connect is strong. He fights it, but he loses, always coming back for more. But when he does, he gives her nothing.
From the first time she sees him, Cassidy knows Deacon is dead inside. She knows he’s the kind of man who could destroy a woman. But one night when Deacon’s control slips, Cassidy takes a chance.
He might break her. He also might be her dream come true.
Cassidy Swallow had a dream of owning her own little piece of the Colorado mountains every since she was a little girl. She accepts a generous loan from her father and sets out to make her dream a reality.
Her first return customer is a man known only as John Priest. He pays in cash and always stays in cabin eleven. He also is the most intense and enigmatic man that she has ever encountered. Year after year, he returns and each time her attraction to him grows. Is he really as cold as he appears or does his desire run as hot as her own?
“But I would find out in a variety of ways, all of them hard, that was me. Time and again, not one of them smart, I let hope fill my heart. And my head. And my gut. So much hope, it leaked out my pores. Yeah. I did that. All the time. I was a loser that way.”
Deacon lives in the shadows so can’t tell the beautiful owner of Glacier Lily Cottages his real name. She is his one weakness and when his steely control finally breaks, he discovers that Cassidy is a sensual woman who challenges him at every turn. She stirs feelings inside him that he thought were long since dead. But Deacon carries secrets that won’t let him go. Can he get her to trust him long enough to know that she is the one who truly knows who he is – body and soul?
“I was a cold motherfucker, off the grid, no life, no home, no ties, no emotions, everyone knew it. Until I came back to some rundown cabins I’d been to before that were off the beaten path. Perfect place for the minimal downtime I let myself have. Quiet place. A place no one could find me. But when I came back, a beautiful woman with attitude, amazing eyes, and lips I wanted
The Unfinished Heroes may very well be my favourite series from Kristen! It’s here where she creates her grittiest, sexiest and most memorable stories – and Deacon is no exception.
The characters are unparalleled and Cassidy is one of her strongest heroines yet. She’s a smart independent woman who isn’t afraid to embrace life with her whole heart. Deacon is the other side of the coin – darkly brooding and wickedly intense. The heat between them is so fierce that it can’t be measured using existing technology! Put all of this together with Kristen’s signature style and you have one fabulously intoxicating read…
