Bull rider Nick Jackson has spent his entire life not knowing who he really is. Abandoned as a toddler and raised in foster homes, Nick is afraid to put down roots, to make commitments, to love, because life has a way of ripping those things away from you when you least expect it.
When Nick starts thinking about settling down, he needs to discover his past before he feels capable of planning a future. Doing so means opening up feelings long buried, and opening himself up to pain and rejection.
Psychologist Jean Sutherland wants to help Nick discover his true identity and find his family, but not as a professional. Her interest in Nick is purely personal. She finds it difficult not to cross the line between her personal and professional lives, and nearly ruins them both in the process.
Getting close to Nick won't be easy. Or safe.
