Far Hills Ranch has bound together the Susland family for nearly a century and a half. For just as long, there’s been a legend that the ranch and its family are cursed. Now, says the legend, the current generation is the last with a chance to break the curse.
A stranger rescues her, then disappears when she needs him most... Until he knocks on her door, years later and half a world away...
On assignment in distant Santa Estella, hardheaded journalist Kendra Jenner finds herself in the middle of a vicious hurricane . . . and unexpectedly in the arms of a stranger who speaks virtually no English. Fear leads to passion that months later leads to a baby, which Kendra fully expects to raise on her own, since her search for the father is a fruitless one. Three years later, "Paulo" shows up at her Wyoming home, identifying himself as Daniel Delligati. He says he's come for his son -- and for her.
Can they have a second chance at love ... when they never had a first chance?
“A beautifully crafted story revolving around two of the most determined characters you'll ever meet, both of whom want only what is right, and best, for the little boy conceived out of what was perhaps only a desperate affirmation of life in a life-threatening situation ... or perhaps the beginning of a love that runs deeper than fear and self-doubt and recriminations. Daniel is a hero to die for, at once vulnerable and courageous, gentle, and iron-willed. ... A thoroughly enjoyable read."" -- From 5* review by Karen Templeton
"...bursting with wonderful Patricia McLinn romantic touches -- powerful characters, strong interplay and fiery moments". --Romantic Times
