Candace Brown grew up believing in fairy tales that promised her a Prince Charming, a knight in shining armor, and a happily-ever-after ending. But at twenty-seven, with two failed relationships and a heart broken into pieces, the facts of life have opened her eyes to the truth: not everyone gets a happy ending—sometimes, all you get is “the end.”
Brice Coleman has never been in love, and he's never been anyone's knight in shining anything. Since entering the battle between the sexes at puberty, he has long enjoyed the spoils of war, one female conquest at a time. And then, a chance encounter engineered by fate changes his life in the blink of an eye and brings him face to face with his destiny. A beautiful, emotionally fragile woman steals his heart.
With every intention to become a permanent fixture in Candace’s life, Brice is determined to protect the woman he loves—and heal her broken heart.
