Nick Hammond and Beth Carlyle have been best friends since birth and haven’t ever considered that there might be more than friendship between them, but during their final year of college, her boyfriend’s act of selfish brutality changes everything.
Nick has always been sure of his life’s path. When his father retires, he’ll inherit his family’s sprawling Lazy H Ranch and continue the traditions of his forefathers. It’s the only life he wants, but when an evening of fun on the town is shattered by Beth’s screams, Nick’s future is thrown into chaos. Beth’s dreams are destroyed. Forget those kids she wanted, forget showing them how great it is to be a ranch kid, and forget ever enjoying a man’s touch again. All she has left is her family’s C Diamond Ranch, a prayer that she can cobble herself back together well enough to run it… and Nick.
When Nick jumps in to protect Beth, boundaries shift and desires long ignored rise to the surface, forcing them to question everything their friendship was and could be. With their emotions so tangled by what happened, how can they know if these new feelings are only the circumstances or something much deeper? They’ll have to figure it out in a storm of other consequences, and Beth will have to find the courage to keep Nick out of trouble.
