A loner who’s lost faith in love is the only hope for a mother and child on the run
From New York Times and USAToday bestselling author Jean Brashear, the second book of a trilogy of romances rich with emotion, ripe with secrets, scandals and sexual tension.
Mitch Gallagher is a loner, down to the bone. Banished at sixteen from everything and everyone he held dear, he's an intensely private man whose rusty, unused heart long ago gave up on love. Fragile Perrie Matheson is on the run to protect her beloved son. Too ill to travel further with a winter storm on the way, she has no choice but to gamble her child's safety on a man who wants only to be left alone.
But during days spent together in the mountain cabin, Mitch and Perrie each find surprises in store...and all the reasons they should stay apart battle with the yearnings of hearts too long denied love.
