About Peony Red:
Alex Fisher hasn’t been able to find her stride since the death of her husband three years ago. She’s out of a job, out of time, and running on fumes. So, when she receives two postcards from Granite Harbor, Maine, inviting her for a visit, she takes it as a sign for a start fresh.
For game warden Eli Young, life is simpler when he’s exploring the back roads of Maine. In the north woods, he doesn’t have to deal with town politics or his soon-to-be ex-wife.
When Alex makes Eli an offer he can’t refuse, he should say no. He should walk away. Except he can’t. Something about her leaves him tangled.
A dark storm is brewing in the small coastal town, and everyone is on edge when word spreads quickly about a young woman who has gone missing.
When a picture of Alex shows up at a gruesome scene, no one is prepared for what will happen next.
Eli wants to save Alex, but she has to save herself.
The question isn’t, Can she? It’s, Will she?

I quietly open the passenger door and pull her sleeping body in my arms. I carry her to the front door of the Malcomb Place, trying not to wake her.
She jerks up. “I need Eli. Please.” She struggles. I tighten my grip around her. “I’m here. I’m right here.” I’m in too deep, I tell myself. I’m not sure if this is the right move or not, but she needs rest, so I carry her into the bedroom, setting her down on the bed. I know I need to reassure her. Calm her. “I’m all right. I’m right here.”
She begins to shake as she falls against my chest. “I’m cold.”
I gently pull her arms from me even though I want nothing more than for her to be in my arms. I have to do what’s best for her and not me. I’m methodical, only because I want her to know this has nothing to do with sex and everything about taking care of her needs.
It’s when I undo her bra with my hand and pull it between us that I feel her against me. All of her.
