Fairytales tell us monsters are big scary creatures that hide in the shadows. Life isn’t a fairytale, and neither are the monsters. In my story, the evildoer hides behind a screen to torment me.
When his interest escalates from messages to threats, the only way I can stay safe is to leave my life in the city and seek safety in a small mountain town. What I didn’t expect to find in Starlight Ridge is a police officer I’ve met before.
It isn’t the change in Gage Castillo’s appearance alone that has me curious. There is something in his eyes that tells me he too is seeking solace. Unlike me, I don’t think it’s a man after him but a memory.
Having Gage nearby dims the feeling of being pursued. For the first time, I am able to live my life in love and not fear. I am determined to live in my bubble of happiness … so long as my stalker doesn’t find me.
