Colette Strand takes her modeling career seriously enough that it gained her a stalker. She’s not afraid of him, but of men like him. Living an organized and private life keeps her anxiety at bay and her family out of the tabloids.
Long before their chance meeting while on the way to his best friend’s wedding at the Kingsbrier ranch business mogul, Devon Walsh, is familiar with the intricacies of Colette’s past. He refuses to accept the emotional disguise Colette wears to keep her world in order, and he shows her how freeing chaos can be. But for as fast as their relationship begins moving, Devon also holds Colette at arms length.
When Devon reveals the darkest places inside of him, Colette can’t help wondering if he wants her at all.
