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.
“I love Liz Durano’s real romance style of writing. I love her imperfect characters and how beautifully alive her locations feel. I’ve never been to Taos but someday when I go I’ll feel like I’m coming home. Loved the book!” – Carly Quinn, author of Solitude and Kawaipuna Cottage
“Breaking All the Rules addresses the issue of PTSD and its impact on returned servicemen and women and their families. Liz illustrates, without judgment, the difficulties of dealing with trauma and the impact of suicide on families and communities. Her eloquence and compassion is evident throughout this story.” – Mahalia, Amazon review
