Protecting My Heart Welcome to Valentine Bay!
Ella Fletcher spent all of high school in love with the boy next door--her best friend, Donovan. It was never more than that, but she fooled herself into believing friendship was enough.
Donovan Valentine knew he could never make a move on his best friend Ella. After all, she depended on him. He was the only stable man in her life. If denying his feelings was the price he had to pay for protecting hers, then he was more than willing to pay it.
Celebrating their high school graduation, they drunkenly took part in a marriage ceremony using fake IDs. But now, fifteen years later, it turns out that the IDs weren't so fake, and neither is the marriage.
When Donovan returns to Valentine Bay to straighten things out, will this accident turn into the best thing that ever happened to them?
*** Standalone romance with HEA and no cliffhanger ***
