About the Author – Olivia Hardin realized early on how strange she was to have complete movie-like character dreams as a child. Eventually she began putting those vivid dreams to paper and was rarely without her spiral notebooks full of those mental ramblings. Her forgotten vision of becoming an author was realized when she connected with a group of amazingly talented and fabulous writers who gave her lots of direction and encouragement. With a little extra push from family and friends, she hunkered down to get lost in the words. She’s also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and is sometimes accused of being artistic, though she’s generally too much of a perfectionist to appreciate her own work. A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband and their puppy Bonnie.

 “So, where are we going?” he asked and took the diaper bag from her.

“We? You mean you really think you’re coming along?”

“Yes,” he said, his tone emphatic as they started for the church’s exit.

“No, Bren, you aren’t.”

He turned, giving her a confused frown. “You need—”

“You don’t have any idea what you’re saying. Do you know what kind of trouble I’m in?”

“Yes, I have a pretty damn good idea. The better question is, do you know what kind of trouble you’re in?” He sighed when he saw a spark of fear come into her eyes. “You need me.”

“No, I don’t.”

“Mark thinks you do.”

Her eyes widened. “You went to Mark? Why?”

“I wanted to find out exactly what was going on, and I knew he was the only one who would tell me.”

“You could have implicated him in all of this. He has a wife and children to protect.”

“He’s worried about you.”

“I don’t need him to worry about me. I’m fine, Bren. Go home and tell Mark that I’m fine, and just don’t worry about me.”

He approached her, dropping the bag off of his shoulder. “Do you think I’ll be able to forget that you’re running from the law, trying to support yourself and a child? I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night.”

She rested the baby carrier on the floor at her feet and faced him. “I’m not your problem or your responsibility.”

“Was I yours all those times you took care of me?”

“It’s not the same—”

“It is,” he insisted, and she could see that he was not going to surrender.
