I had it all figured out: finish high school, attend seminary, and finally answer my calling. Becoming a priest was all I ever wanted.
Until I wanted her.
The girl who was always out of my reach. The one who still steals my breath with just a look. I didn’t know she would become my temptation and vice, and quite possibly, my ruin.
With a crossroads before me and my head a battlefield, can I choose sides without losing a part of who I am?
His half smiles and those blue eyes that pulled me deeper, threatening to drown me. But he was never mine to keep. Like all good and rare things, it came to an end. And I erected a wall around my heart to prevent suffering that pain again.
Dimples and gray eyes changed all that. He smashed through my defenses and stole what was left of my heart.
Until my past returns.
Now my heart is a war zone, past and present battling for my forever.
They say lightning doesn’t strike the same place twice. I have the burns to prove that isn’t true.
Who knew falling in love could hurt so much?
Not when I’m at the center of it all.
Three hearts hang in the balance. A choice must be made. Keep one and let one go.
No matter what I decide, someone is getting burned. There’s no winning this battle. No one ever said love is easy. But I never knew it would be this hard.
Love can be a poison, and sometimes, it’s the only thing that can save us.
