On a dark day in Grovers Glen a young mother does the unthinkable--she murders her husband. Three years later, his brother has hunted her down.
Sarah McBride never wanted to enter the lottery. Jacob was her one true love and look at how that had turned out. But Emily needs a father and that means she'll have to have a husband. She never expected a tall, dark, and handsome Brennan to be in the lottery and she certainly never expected him to pick her. On the surface Angus seems like the perfect husband, or at least the perfect father. He dotes on Emily and it's clear that he adores her. But every once in awhile she'll catch Angus staring at her in a way that sends a chill up her spine.
Angus Brennan has spent three long years hunting for the woman who murdered his brother. He's changed his name and become a Brennanmen which gives him respect and an excuse to nose around the town without making people suspicious.

The only problem is Emily, the sweetest two year old he's ever seen. He falls for her hard and before he knows it he's starting to fall for her mother too.
A victim, a mother, a vengeful brother. Some fairytales have happy endings and some don't.
