In the first book in the vastly popular Sullivans
Bella Andre, readers are introduced to Chase Sullivan, a
successful photographer and all around good guy. When he
finds a car at the side of the road in the middle of a
storm, Chase goes to investigate to make sure no one is
hurt. There he finds Chloe Peterson who is soaked to the
bone and in dire need of some assistance. Though hesitant
at first, Chloe comes to trust Chase enough that she allows
him to take her to his brother's vineyard where he is
staying for the night.
Chloe's heart is shielded like a prison. Events in the past
have made her that way and she has good reason, especially
when the bruises on her face tell others of what she has
survived. Opening up her heart to Chase is only half the
battle, but she is beginning to realize that love just

Chloe Peterson has vowed never to make the mistake of
trusting a man again. Her reasons are as vivid as the
bruises on her cheek. So when her car skids off a wet
country road straight into a ditch, she's convinced the
gorgeous guy who rescues her must be too good to be true.
As a successful international photographer, Chase Sullivan
has his pick of beautiful women. He's satisfied with his
life—until he finds Chloe and her totaled car on the side of
the road in Napa Valley.
With every loving look—and every sinfully sweet caress—the
