Everyone has secrets. He wants all of hers.
Meet the man next door...
After years of military service, Evan Miller wants a quiet life. The small town of Ravenswood seems perfect-until he stumbles upon a vicious web of lies with his new neighbour at its centre.
Ruth Kabbah is rude, awkward, and-according to everyone in town-bad news. Thing is, no-one will tell Evan why. Does she perform ritual sacrifices? Howl at the moon? Pour the milk before the tea? He has no clue.
But he desperately wants to find out. Because Ruth doesn't seem evil to him; she seems lonely. And funny, and clumsy, and secretly quite sweet, and really f*%king beautiful...
The more Evan's isolated, eccentric neighbour pushes him away, the more he wants her. Her-and all her secrets. Because there's no way a girl like Ruth truly deserves the town's scorn.
She's hard to hold on to, but he's good with his hands.
In Ruth Kabbah's world, comic books are king, silence is golden, and human contact is a pesky distraction. She doesn't like people, which works out just fine, because the people in this small town don't like her. The exception to that rule? Evan Miller, her way-too-charming next-door neighbour...
Ex-military man Evan is all tattooed muscle on the outside--and a big, cuddly teddy bear beneath. He's used to coaxing prickly people from their shells, but he's never met a woman quite like Ruth. Blunt, sarcastic, and secretly sad, she's his exact opposite. She's also his deepest desire.
Soon, Evan's steady patience and smouldering smiles are melting Ruth's reserve. But when small-town gossip from her past begins to poison her future, she's forced to make a choice. Should she trust Evan completely? Or is her heart safest alone?
