Fearless, an all-new emotional standalone by Carly Phillips is now LIVE!

Fall in love with the Wards…

Mechanic and garage owner, Kane Harmon is used to the wealthy beautiful women visiting his beach town. He doesn't get involved because he knows most females would merely be slumming for the summer. 

Except Halley Ward isn't just passing through. She lives a solitary life in a bungalow on the beach. A woman tormented by her past, distant from her wealthy family, different from Kane's usual fare of town girls who know his M.O.- Don't expect more than he's willing to give. 

Kane rescues Halley and her broken down car from the side of the road and instantly he's hooked. She says she's not interested in him. He knows she lies. And he makes it his mission to bring her back to life, to return her emotionally to her family. To show her the colors around her were as vibrant as the ones she puts on her canvas. 

Until past meets present and threatens all the progress they've made. Then it's Halley's turn to step up and stand up for the relationship and life she's finally coming to believe she deserves.

Now…what do you say to some Italian ices? Ever been to Hank’s?”

She shook her head. “I’ve passed it but there’s always been a ridiculous crowd of people out front.”

“Well, it’s worth the wait. Feel like going on the way home?”

She nodded. “If you can keep me occupied while we wait, then I don’t mind.”

He laughed. “I think I like that challenge.”

When they arrived at Hank’s, an outdoor ice cream and Italian ices stand, they discovered a short line. Not enough for him to have to entertain her, and before they knew it, they were ordering. 

Because they also had ice cream, Halley changed her mind when it came to ordering and asked for vanilla ice cream with hot fudge topping. Kane got a red Italian ice. 

They took their desserts and walked over to a short brick wall and hopped up, sitting side by side, legs swinging as they ate. 

He finished his first. “Good?” he asked, putting his cup down beside him. 

She glanced over, laughing. “Your tongue is red.”

He stuck it out at her and grinned. 

“Want some of mine?” She held out the spoon of vanilla and chocolate mixed. 

“No, doesn’t exactly mix with my cherry.” He paused, as if thinking of something. “Unless…”

“Hmm?” She raised an eyebrow. 

“Unless I’m kissing you.” And before she could react, he leaned over and swept his tongue over her lips and into her mouth, devouring her quickly but thoroughly. 

She moaned into him, leaning in close, savoring the warm cherry flavor he brought to her dessert. 

Before she was ready, he lifted his head and met her gaze, his eyes dark and hungry. “Now that is how to eat an ice cream.”

Kane Harmon has dealt with his fair share of beautiful and wealthy women, every summer they roll into town, pick-up a local man for a few nights of fun, and then once summer comes to end, they leave town and act as though their time with him meant nothing. So, when his father tells him there is one stranded on the side of the road in need of a tow, he braces himself for the shameless flirty, and pick-up lines, and heads her direction, but the woman waiting for him isn't quite who he expected. She maybe wealthy and beautiful, but this woman and he have a past, one that had him coming to her rescue time after time in school when their fellow students decided to be jerks to her. Looking at her now he can still see the same mysterious beauty, who use to steal the breath from his lungs, but now there is a sadness in her eyes that he is determined to wash away. Only she says she isn't looking to date anyone, so he offers friendship instead, hoping it will help him work his way into her graces again. And maybe her heart too...

Halley Ward is somewhat of a recluse, only leaving her beach house when necessary, very seldom venturing out for a night on the town, for fear of crowds and men trying to pick her up. But with a showing at the local art house nearing she knows she needs to muster up the courage to venture into town and deliver her paintings for the show, only she doesn't get to far due to her faulty fuel pump. Now she finds herself stuck on the side of the road, in the sweltering sun, and needing a tow... good thing there is a tow truck headed her way. Little does she that that tow truck is about to change her life in more ways then one... it holds a key to her past, and a man she use to crush on back in school. Question is will find the courage to act on said crush, or turn tide and run per her usual M.O.?
