Originally part of the Taste of Romance short story anthology by the Melbourne Romance Writers Guild - Love Interrupted takes place in the fictional town of Shadow Bay, Oregon. 

When firefighter, Ryan Harper, falls in love with cop, Callie O'Connor, he imagines a future of marriage and babies – not bullets and break ups. Then Callie is shot on-duty.

She survives. Their relationship doesn’t.

Callie works hard to prove herself in a man's world. She has it all. Perfect job. Perfect man. Perfect life. Taking a bullet rocks her confidence, but not her love of taking down the bad guys. Ryan struggles to support her dangerous job and their relationship crumbles. She walks away from the man she's loved her whole life – a choice more painful than any gunshot wound.

Life without Callie is excruciatingly empty, but can Ryan overcome his fears to accept Callie, job and all? And when danger finds her off-duty, can he trust her to handle the situation, and prove he's ready for a second chance?
