He won’t hesitate to put his life on the line... but will he ever risk his heart? Falling for Justice Garrett was a high point in Patience McGraw’s otherwise awkward adolescence. Even after he disappeared, Patience never forgot the boy who captured her heart. Now, he’s back in Fool’s Gold, California, and her passion for him is as strong as ever. But how can she trust that he won’t abandon her again ― and her daughter, too? When bodyguard Justice Garrett was a young man, witness protection brought him to this idyllic town and he never forgot its warmth, or the sweet beauty of his childhood friend. He’s returned to open a defense academy, and the Patience he once knew is all grown up. He can’t resist her smile, or her curves. But Justice’s past doesn’t make him husband, or father, material. Patience and Justice think they’ll succumb to just one kiss... Then one more... Okay, just one night together. But they might learn that falling in love is beyond anyone’s control. “A little fun, a little sizzle, and a whole lot of homespun charm.” ― Publishers Weekly on Summer Nights

Amazon Editorial Review of Just One Kiss
Just One Kiss will leave you wanting more...
Susan Mallery’s Fool's Gold series focuses on an all-American small town, full of quirky characters, close friendships, and busy bodies. This setting makes for a sweet and cozy romance that you can sink into instantly, surrounded by loving families and loyal friends.
Just One Kiss is the first in a new cycle of Fool's Gold books focusing around a group of former military special forces members, a few with previous connections to the town, who move in to start a bodyguard academy and corporate retreat called CDS. We begin with Justice Garret, a former soldier and private bodyguard who once lived in the town while in witness protection as a teenager. During the brief year he spent posing as a 16 year-old high school student instead of the 18 year old graduate he was, Justice befriended 14 year-old Patience McGraw.
Before their relationship could move beyond friendship, Justice’s father was spotted in town and he was forced to flee, leaving without explanation. The town searched for the missing boy but never found answers.
Fourteen years later, Patience is a single mother with a 10 year old daughter, working at the town salon and dreaming of opening her own coffee shop. Abandoned by her husband only weeks after her daughter Lillie was born, Patience is used to fending for herself. She’s never forgotten the boy her 14 year-old self was so desperately in love with but never heard from again. Needless to say, she’s shocked when he walks into her salon and back into her life, informing her of his plans to open a bodyguard academy in the town.
