saving lives and mending hearts…….
Anthony “Ace” Bailey
I’m not a rules kinda guy
Department Policy? Kinda sucks, but I do what I have to for the job that I
Playing it safe? Not my thing.
Married? No big deal when I know she’s unhappy and scared.
I’m one of those guys – a sniper in the military, a little bit of an
adrenaline junkie, and a member of the Moonshine Task Force. I’ve lived through
My gut has never failed me. It’s my sixth-sense. Warning me of a gunshot coming
my way, of a traffic stop being potentially deadly, or the tingling in the back
of my neck when I go to sleep telling me I’ll be woken up by a call in the
middle of the night. My gut has always kept me honest.
Like the day I walked into The Café and saw the new waitress. There was a ring
on her left hand, but I didn’t care. One look in her eyes told me everything I
needed to know. Her marriage wasn’t one made of love and respect. It was one
made of fear and doubt.
It’s why I ignored that ring, why I arrested her husband, and the reason I’m

Meeting Anthony Bailey changed my life. He did things that no one else has ever
done for me.
Feeling safe? Never happened before.
Feeling wanted? It’s been years.
Being independent? I’m learning.
It’s foreign, not having someone question my every move, being able to eat what
I want for dinner, and sitting out on my front porch talking to Anthony every
night while we share a couple beers.
I try to tell myself he’s just being nice; that he’s doing his job and working
within the community. The problem? The night he takes the kiss we both want,
everything changes, and I can no longer deny what I feel. But it doesn’t stop
me from trying – and I learn quickly that Ace knows me better than anyone else
ever has – including myself.
All I can do is hang on, as he takes me on the scariest journey of my life. The
one that bends us until we almost break, and ends with a happily ever after I
never thought I would get.
ACE includes the wedding of a beloved couple, an appearance by Reaper, and the
continuation of EVERYONE falling in love with Caleb!
