Against the Odds

Against The Odds by Kathryn Shay

Book 3: Serenity House Trilogy

Rescued as a teenager from an abusive household, Anabelle Crane loved the time she spent at Serenity House. But when she’s hired to become a nanny to wealthy Congressman Nathan Hyde’s daughter, she finds a different kind of love. She comes to care deeply for her charge and, though she fights it, she falls for the handsome and powerful Congressman himself. But when he reveals he’s in love with her too, passion explodes. Their relationship ends bitterly.

Fifteen years later, Anabelle has become a cop who stands for the rights of others. It’s when she’s wounded and returns home that she meets up with Nathan again—after she heals, she becomes his bodyguard while he’s being stalked!

This time, can they stop their inconvenient and, now, dangerous feelings for each other?
