Race Point, Massachusetts, 1876
Will she ever be able to stop running, even when she believes she’s finally safe?
Heiress to a vast fortune, Victoria Cole has everything she wants, including the perfect fiancé. Having left two other men at the altar, Victoria is sure that now she’s found her true love and will finally live happily ever after. As her wedding draws near, however, Victoria’s life is threatened. To keep her safe, Victoria’s father hires a bodyguard.
Tom Cushman’s number one priority is protecting his clients, which means no personal entanglements. But he’s never guarded someone as beautiful and winsome as Victoria. After a near-kidnapping, the wedding is cancelled, and Tom hides Victoria at Cape Cod’s Race Point Lighthouse until her attacker can be found. Appointed as assistant light keeper with Victoria posing as his wife, Tom believes the isolation of the lighthouse will keep her safe.
As Victoria struggles to live without familiar luxuries, her heart betrays her with growing feelings for her protector. Determined to help Tom stop fleeing from his haunted past, can the runaway bride learn to face her own fears? With the attacker closing in, will both of them ever be able to stop running and find the safety they long for?
Jody Hedlund’s first foray in to independent publishing is the with Forever Safe, the concluding novel in her successful Beacons of Hope series. If you have been following this series as faithfully as I have, you will want to grab a copy to read Victoria Cole’s story. If you haven’t, don’t fret because it can be read as a standalone. With a crowd pleasing plotline of clashing personalities (symptomatic of deeper attraction of course), hidden identities and lurking danger, this story will find readers both dreading and racing to the last page. Painted with rich historical detail and meaningful character development, Forever Safe checks off all the right boxes for historical romance lovers.
Available in eBook and print through all major online book retailers.
