Bridget E. Baker – Finding Liberty
Billionaire heiress Brekka Thornton is headed for Olympic fame and glory until a car accident destroys all her plans. She redirects her efforts toward conquering the business world with her brother Trig, closing the door on her old life without a backward glance.
An IED blast sends Rob Graham back to the US with a purple heart and a broken back. After a miraculous recovery, he returns home to find that his dad needs him to run the family business. Rob never hesitates, even though he hates car sales more than pop up ads.
When Brekka’s brother proposes to Rob’s best friend, their paths are destined to cross at the upcoming wedding. Even so, Rob isn’t prepared for Brekka to roll into his life and turn it inside out. Brekka takes Rob to task for slighting her brother, but he’s distracted by her flashing eyes and captivating dimple. He can’t bear the thought of watching her leave his office, so Rob asks her to dinner.
Brekka hasn’t been on a date since the car accident, and Rob’s quick wit and winning smile unnerve her. She resolves to head home and duck back into hiding where the world is safe. Rob ought to let her go. He isn’t nearly good enough for the highly educated Brekka, but he didn’t become a Marine by quitting when things look bleak.
Can love mend these two broken spirits, or will the weight of the past shatter them beyond repair?
