Rachel Cameron prefers to lick her wounds and protect her children from gossip and shame in isolation on a small homestead in the Ozark Mountains. But life-long bachelor and ex-Marine Sheriff Garrett Stark has other ideas.
Drawn to Rachel, Garrett wields all the power and charm he can muster to insist she return to town for her safety and that of her children. Exasperation and anger rule on both sides. Rachel balks, but does not anticipate the raft of dizzying emotions stirred by Garrett’s relentless attention.
The moment Garrett takes her into his arms, Rachel knows she must make a choice: honor the truth and face her fears or live forever as an outsider.
