Love is a risk… and might not be worth the heartache.

Sophie jumps at the chance to return to Baytown for a temporary job, but discovered that in trying to guard her heart, she had only cut herself off from true love.

As she and Callan grow closer, discovering their feelings had not changed, she stumbles into suspicious activity near her work.  

Promising to guard her heart, Callan and his friends work to make sure Sophie is safe before someone decides to quiet her permanently.

Baytown Boys…

Military duty called them away to war zones, but after tours overseas, the group of friends found their way back home as men, seeking the peaceful little seaside town. Now, the band of brothers, together once more, work to provide a place for less fortunate veterans to call home.
