Emotional. Honest. Real.

Claiming What Is Mine

Meredith Still was the love of my life. My dream girl.


Gabe Wilde was my protector. My knight in shining armor.
 

We had our future planned out—together—down to the names of our unborn children. Everything was going according to plan...until it wasn't.
 

Sometimes life happens that way.
 

When I left for college, I never thought I'd be back home for anything longer than a visit. Too many ghosts reminding me of the girl who got away.
 

By the time I left for college, my heart was broken, and I was sure I would never feel love like that again. I wasn't sure I even wanted to.
 

After Pop was killed in a car accident, I had to come home. Now, after being back for so long, I can't help but wonder what could have been if I hadn't been in such a hurry to leave.
 

Coming home to start over again at thirty-five, well, it wasn't exactly part of my plan. But Imagine my surprise when I run into the one and only Gabe Wilde.
 

Sometimes life happens that way.
 

Can true love survive almost two decades apart?
