Love cost Cecilia McDonald a lot more than her degree.
Five years after running away from college in the middle of her senior year, Cecilia still won't talk about why she left. Broke and broken, she lives a quiet existence in her sleepy hometown, scraping by on bartender's wages. With her relationships platonic and her heart on ice, Cee's life is calm and predictable… until a barroom brawl between two customers ends in murder.
Angus Terry—the murder victim's grouchy, gorgeous, man-beast of a son—arrives in town intent on leaving the minute he settles his dead father's affairs. But when he and Cecilia clash over custody of a wounded dog, they unwittingly set off a chain of events that will bind their lives together indefinitely.
Hating Angus should be easy, but it's not.
Ignoring Angus should be easy, but it's not.
Because beneath his beard and attitude, Angus might be the only man who can thaw Cee's frozen heart… if her past doesn't catch up to them first.
