What do a fifteen-year-old pact, a fake engagement, and a stalker have in common? Audrey Hughes.
Audrey’s ex-boyfriend won’t take ‘no’ for an answer. A master manipulator and a violently selfish man, he’s decided Audrey is his property. And he’s determined to get her back. Forcibly, if necessary.
She flees to the one place she ever found ‘family’—to Enchantment Bay. More precisely, to Logan Hunter.
Logan is a successful attorney and consummate bachelor. His work is his wife, and that’s the only long-term relationship he sees for himself. Until a childhood sweetheart shows up and reminds him of the pact they made years earlier—to get married.
It surprises him that she remembered, stuns him that he’s intrigued, and shocks him to discover her reason for returning. He uses all his influence and connections to protect her, only to be the one who causes her unbearable pain and drives her away.
Can Logan find a way to keep Audrey safe, make things right, and mend both their broken hearts?

I’ve read an ARC of this book and I throughout enjoyed this sweet story. Audrey and Logan first met at the age of 15 when she was on vacation with her foster family. They got along well then and made a marriage pact. 15 years later Audrey’s been through a lot when she appears on Logan’s doorstep to remind him of the pact. Logan soon finds out why she’s back at Enchantment Bay and wants to help her getting rid of her ex-boyfriend who stalks her. First he fake propose to her before he makes her file a restraining order against Bryson. Unfortunately that’s still not enough to scare him away but while trying to get rid of Bryson, Logan discovers that being fake engaged might not be enough for him but will Audrey agree to marry him for real? 5 stars from me.
