Once, her art brought her fame. This time will it bring her love?

Widowed homemaker Rachael Stark isn’t quite sure what comes after her only child leaves for college. To fill her suddenly quiet hours and scrawny bank account, she needs a job. But painful memories prevent her from resurrecting her former art career, and motherhood isn’t much of a résumé. When her best friend needs help recovering from a gunshot wound that occurred in the line of duty, she is there. Finally, someone to take care of.

Evan Wayne won’t let his injury keep him from being a police officer. His dedication to protect the innocent stems from the guilt he carries over having failed his childhood friend. What he needs now is to recover and get back on the streets. Instead, he’s handed a myriad of light-duty tasks by his captain―one of which involves heading up the department’s entry into the town’s annual mural contest. He’s not an artist, but he definitely knows one. And he’ll take any excuse to spend more time with her.

When Rachael agrees to paint for Evan, she never expects to also be drawn into finding answers for the mother of a missing child. As the two friends work side by side on the mural and the case, their feelings move beyond friendship. But with Evan unwilling to leave his dangerous job, and Rachael unwilling to risk another loss of a loved one, their fears may paint over the promise of a beautiful future together.

He resettled on his stool. “How long are you here for anyway?”

“That depends on how long you need me.” She plugged her phone in, then set it aside. “I heard your cry for help, and with my suddenly empty schedule, I figured I’d answer it.”

“How noble of you, except I don’t remember sending up the Bat Signal.”

“Because you’re Batman. You don’t send it up, you answer it.”

“But you said you’re answering it.” He snapped his fingers. “So, wait. That makes you my sidekick. Like Robin?”

“I am nobody’s sidekick.”

“You’re right. You’re more like a leading lady.”

She held his look, and for the briefest of moments, the atmosphere charged between them. But she’d boxed him so firmly into the friend zone, he’d need a battering ram to get out.

As if to remind him of his place, she punched him in his good shoulder. “That’s right, and don’t you forget it.”

He couldn’t. That was the problem. Because offering her the role felt like an all-or-nothing risk—too costly to take, yet becoming all-too-impossible to ignore.
