Candice is a Jersey girl, who wouldn’t know a horse from a bicycle.
But when she gets caught up in a twisted heartbreak, delivered firsthand by her high school sweetheart, her life is turned upside down. She was stuck in an unfulfilling job after doing all of the “right” things in life, like going to college, had her world shattered by her boyfriend and never really felt like she could be herself in her hometown.
She needed to get away.
After having an epiphany about life, she decides to sell most of her belongings, pack up her car and drive to wherever her car will take her.
After more than 20 hours of driving, that trip hits a detour, as a storm causes her to car to break down, and she’s in the middle of nowhere, in need of help. A handsome cowboy comes to her rescue, and not only helps to get her out of harm’s way, he shakes up her world again, this time, for the better.
Candice gets a crash course in love and how a gentleman should treat a lady. Her cowboy is a rugged, dominant alpha male with countless acres of land and everything he wants in life, but behind his cheerful, masculine demeanor lies a hidden pain that only a woman can cure.
Will they fill each other’s gaps and be open to what fate has brought them?
