For my husband, for somehow loving the most imperfect person in the most perfect way.

 

And for my children. May you always let love in, even when it seems like a most impossible task.

JUDE

 

I’m not worthy. I don’t deserve her. And I know it.

 

Before he died, my brother asked me to take care of his young widow, and I agreed. And after my brother died, my mother asked me to dig up some dirt on the girl. I also agreed. I’ve been called lots of things in my day. An anomaly. A walking contradiction. A complicated asshole. But I’ve never been called someone’s hero… until her.

 

EVIE

 

I don’t understand him, and I sure as hell don’t understand what’s happening. He confuses me, and at times, I want to slap him and kiss him all at the same time. I didn’t even know he existed until that night he showed up at my door. Nothing makes sense anymore. All I know is he’s the most complex man I’ve ever met, and as much as I try to deny the way I feel about him, I’m powerless in the solace of his embrace. Our relationship may be inappropriate and unconventional, but it’s ours. And in a weird sort of way, he’s kind of my hero.

 

But there are secrets and self-loathing behind his eyes, words left unspoken, and questions unanswered. I always thought Julian held the key to my future… until I met Jude.
