Five years ago, Ben Conner killed a man. He might have swallowed the guilt, but the man had a son—eleven-year-old Luke, who was now no one’s son—and Ben shut everyone out… even June Montana, the one person who could have shown him he’s not a monster.
June has almost everything she ever wanted in life, but something is missing. She hasn’t talked to Ben since the shooting, and she’s worried about him. Then, out of the blue, he shows up in Northstar, and she sees for herself how much that ordeal still torments him. Instead of the escape he hoped for when he impulsively decides to come see June, Ben is reunited with the boy he orphaned. Luke is June’s son now, and if Ben can’t accept that, he’ll lose her for good. If he can, he and Luke may be able to help each other overcome their entwined traumas.
Ben’s unexpected return opens the door to other possibilities. In their time apart, the shyness that once prevented them from exploring their attraction to each other has vanished. Desire and something more than friendship ignites, but before they can figure out if Luke and Ben will be able to overcome the past, a disturbing problem arises. Someone from June’s past wants revenge for a broken heart, and he’s willing to kill to get it.
The Northstar Angels will grab you by the heart as they prove family isn’t always a bond of blood in Suzie O'Connell's heartfelt, passionate contemporary romance series set in Northstar, Montana, where friendship and love are as bountiful as the fresh mountain air.
"June and Ben's story was by far the most inspiring story I have read in along time."
— Kim Beck, avid reader
"I especially appreciated the even pacing of the story and the graceful denouement. There was a good mixture of dialogue and introspection, description and action. These attributes have been sorely missed in some of the books I have read lately and should not be undervalued."
