Faking her own death to escape her murderous husband, Rainie Hall takes refuge in the rural community of Crystal Falls, Oregon, where she starts work as a bookkeeper on a horse ranch run by rugged, dangerously good-looking Parker Harrigan.
Parker’s word is his honor, and he can’t tolerate liars. When he realizes that Rainie hasn’t been truthful with him, he’s furious, then concerned. Clearly she’s a woman in trouble and if she’ll trust him, he’ll do right by her. But as their attraction blossoms into a deep and thrilling passion, Rainie fears that her mere presence could jeopardize everything the Harrigan family holds dear...
