Breaking the Rules

Breaking the Rules

A widowed single mother.
Her husband's best friend.
A promise one of them has to let go.

I've always preferred my life simple and commitment-free. It's why I live off the grid and do my own thing.

But when I run into my best friend's widow, I realize there's one commitment I've failed to keep. It's the one I made to the fellow Marine who saved my life so many years ago, the one that became complicated the moment my feelings for her crossed the line and I had to walk away.

But I'm not the only one having a problem with commitments... for Alma's got one of her own. And she's determined to honor it no matter what the cost.

But when Fate brings us together, can she let go of her secrets and allow me to honor my own?

All I want is for Drew’s legacy to live on…

He was a good and loving husband and hometown hero, the Marine who gave six hard years of his life for his country.

But I didn’t count on the demons that followed him home. I didn’t expect the man I loved to change into a stranger… and then one day be gone.

But no matter what happens, I’ll keep his secrets safe.

I'll keep my promise no matter what it'll cost me.

About the Author
Liz Durano

Liz Durano writes women's fiction and angst-filled romance. When she's not writing, she's usually trying her best not to step over her son's Lego blocks and drinking coffee to assuage the pain when she does. She lives in Southern California with her family, a Chihuahua mix rescued off the street, and way too many books she needs to start a catalog system for them.
