For my wonderful husband,
who’s taught me so much about giving,
self-sacrifice, and patience.
You balance, temper, and protect me.
This book wouldn’t have been possible
without all the good things
you’ve shown me over the years.
The two decades I’ve been your wife
have been the best of my life.
I can’t wait for many more.
Acknowledgments
 
As always, a big thanks to the friends, fellow writers, and beta readers who keep me sane:
A huge shout-out to Sophie Oak for being generally awesome, for sharing my love of margaritas, and for telling me that I wasn’t insane—at least not totally. And for loving this book as much as I did.
