She hadn’t expected much of anything when she first came to Purgatory. A fresh start, maybe. A chance to rebuild something for herself after the threads of her life had unraveled and frayed apart: her family, then a quickly failed marriage. So like countless others before her, she’d sought solace in horizons where the faces were unfamiliar.

Hit the reset button and, as was her way, set about to remake herself with patience and care, bit by bit.
She certainly hadn’t expected bold, brilliant Waverly Earp. Waverly, with a sunshine smile, the sweetest thing she had seen. Waverly, the woman who’d captured her heart in no time at all, and made her ache with a longing she’d never imagined before now.
Even so, Nicole knew how to be patient.
