From USA TODAY bestselling author Tara Randel

She’s the love of his life… but is he still hers?

FBI agent Derrick Matthews has finally found his childhood sweetheart and the love of his life—but she isn’t exactly happy about it! Years ago, Hannah Rawlings disappeared overnight when her family went on the run, and she blames Derrick. She tells him she’s moved on and he should, too, but Derrick fears Hannah’s still in danger. He vows to protect her—even if that means betraying her trust…again.

Shaking off the cold, he scanned the parking lot. Fewer students were arriving now that the last bell was about to ring before classes. A gray sedan pulled into a slot and Hannah emerged from the car, wearing the same coat as yesterday. She zigzagged through the cars as she hurried up the sidewalk to the main door. She stopped abruptly when she saw him.
“Good morning, Miss Rawley.”
“What are you doing here?”
“You have a job.”
“Yep. Security officer at Ponderosa Day School.”
“No,” she glanced around and stage whispered, “with the FBI.”
“I told you I wasn’t leaving until I get the entire truth out of you.” He held out his hand to shake. “Derrick Fields. Additional help until the new security system here is in full working order.”
She barely contained an eye roll.
He wanted to laugh, but couldn’t. Apparently she’d forgotten how tenacious he could be. There were holes in her story, which he was desperate to fill in. And her father leaving? Why would he do that? From what Derrick could remember, he’d doted on his wife and daughter. There was more she hadn’t revealed and he was the guy to get to the bottom of things.
And then there was the boyfriend issue. Or fiancĂ©? He glanced down to find a bright, shiny diamond on Hannah’s ring finger. His heart lurched. Yeah, he hadn’t quite decided how to react to that piece of news.
“You’re unbelievable,” she muttered through clenched teeth.
“So I’ve been told.”
She blew out a breath. “Derrick, you can’t stay here.” She looked down at her finger. “It’s complicated.”
“You keep telling me that, but, put simply, I want to help.”
She met his gaze, heat flashing in her eyes. “No one asked you.”
He shrugged. “Never stopped me from inserting myself anyway.”
“Fine. Suit yourself.”
As she passed by, he fell into step beside her. “Hannah, you have the look of a woman who has too much on her plate.  Even though you think I’m where I don’t belong or I’m a huge inconvenience, please let me hang around for a while to assure myself you’re okay. Is that too much to ask?”
They stood in the bright sunlight, eyes locked. Yesterday when his vision had been blurry, he’d missed the smattering of freckles scattered over her nose and cheeks. Standing this close reminded him of the times they would disagree and have a silent standoff until one of them conceded. The bell rang again and she blinked.
“I need to get to my students,” she said, sweeping past him to enter the building.
