When twelve-year-old Jessie Donovan is viciously attacked by a German shepherd, her recently adopted brother, Ty, becomes her savior—and her secret crush. Now that she’s eighteen and graduated from high school, Jessie’s ready to look at their future outside of the household. If Ty feels the same about her as she does about him, who cares what anyone else thinks? Unfortunately, before she can tell Ty of her feelings, a stranger enters their lives and brings dark news of their father’s misdeeds. The repercussions spell the end of her world as she knows it. Jessie can either have the perfect life with the man of her dreams, or she can save the family ranch and horse-breeding business and the futures of all four of her beloved brothers. The only cost? Herself.
