For two years their situation worked fine. She was prepared to let him go if that’s what it took for him to be happy. But then Lia’s long-lost stalker catches up to them, and Scott might not have a future to worry about. When Lia recognizes her true feelings for Scott, will love be enough to save him?

TALL SHADOWS - Available now!
Holly Wallace has spent her life in a supporting role, managing her brother Adam’s acting career. When Adam has a mental breakdown, she knows from past experience that standard rehab programs won’t work. She finds him something unorthodox: an asylum in the truest sense, to let him take a step out of society and rediscover himself. But when Holly finds herself attracted to the therapist caring for her brother, she once again has to take a step back and put someone else’s needs above her own.
Following the tragic death of his sister, Ben Crawford developed a program based on a nineteenth century treatment that allowed patients to heal themselves holistically. When Holly brings Adam to Ben, Adam’s status could be the boost his program needs. Ben could help even more people, except he comes to see Adam isn’t the only Wallace he wants to help: he’s falling in love with Holly.
Ethics is the one line Ben can’t cross, but if he doesn’t take steps to save Holly from herself, he could lose her to the Tall Shadows of her past.
