It’s hard to move on when your haunted past refuses to be left behind.
Not many have a past like Savannah Lyon’s. She never talks about her life before with anyone—especially wickedly handsome restaurant owners like the guy next door. She can’t ignore him either because he gives a whole new meaning to the word tenacious. Soon, she finds she doesn’t want to.
Casey Moore has met women with moves and instincts like Savannah’s before but not since he was a teenage runaway. He lost his best friend to the streets, and for once, he hopes his razor-sharp intuition is dead wrong because there’s just something about Savannah that touches his heart and makes him feel like a hero.
Casey must face down his own demons to be at Savannah’s side while she stands tough against the worst evil humanity has to offer.
If you enjoy a clean and wholesome mystery complete with tough heroines and tender heroes, you’ll love Tough, the fifth standalone book in the Hidden Hearts series.
