Arrested Heart by H. L. Nida
Learning to trust a man again, yeah sure, that sounds easy. It’s hard when you’re a struggling single mom with a beautiful daughter that you feel you have to protect. My past is full of hurts and an ex-fiancé who was unpredictable and abusive. At times, I’m surprised I’m still alive. As much as I’d love to have a man in my life, he’s going to have to prove that he’s worth it this time. Five years of being alone would make any woman wonder what happened to the sexy side of her. My best friend thinks I’m ready to move forward but, I’m not sure yet. After meeting a law enforcement officer that captures my eye, doesn’t mean that he will change my mind, or my heart. Even if he is a freaking magician between the sheets. I’m not interested in getting into a relationship; I can manage fine on my own. The only way I’d be interested in a man, is if he’s capable of not only being the right man for me but, he would have to prove that he’s the man that my daughter deserves as well.
